For clan and country

Can you believe that we almost went an entire two weeks without any word of a Warriors game? Well, the dream's over now, as Koei Tecmo has announced that it's bringing Samurai Warriors 4: Empires West next year, on the 11th March. The tactical hack and slasher launched in Japan last month.

Dragon Quest Builders Continues to Look Like a Charming Japanese Take on Minecraft

What else did you expect?

Minecraft must be doing something right, seeing as it's one of the most popular video games every released, but that's not necessarily why we're liking the look of incoming copycat Dragon Quest Builders. Judging from its latest PlayStation 4 screenshots, we reckon that it all looks rather charming, and the way that the...

XBLAZE Code: Embryo (PS Vita)

Embryonic

A visual novel prequel to the BlazBlue fighting games, XBlaze Code: Embryo has been available on the PlayStation Vita in Japan since July 2013, and North America since June 2014.

UK Sales Charts: PS4 JRPGs Infiltrate Best Sellers List

Phoenix down

Even though this author isn't necessarily the biggest fan of Japanese role-playing games, it's really nice to see the genre infiltrating this week's UK sales charts. FIFA 16 was top yet again with Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection finishing second – but Tales of Zestiria landed a surprise strike on eighth, while Dragon Quest...

And thus concludes a gigantic week in the PlayStation Nation. There wasn't a whole lot of hot news this time – a juicy No Man's Sky rumour aside – but we made up for it with more reviews than you can possibly imagine. A busy week, then – and it's only going to busier. Reviews: Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below...

XSEED: We Love the Vita and Will Continue to Support It

Get a room

Sony's slowly dropping support for the PlayStation Vita, but it remains flush with Japanese titles and indie ports. This puts the portable in a unique position: it remains incredibly relevant – but only among a very specific niche. Fortunately, publisher XSEED – the organisation responsible for bringing the likes of Akiba's Trip:...

Uppers Is a Kick Ass Brawler Coming to PS Vita

Uppers yours

While the PlayStation Vita may be looking bloody and bruised in North America and Europe these days, it remains a very viable format in Japan. And that's resulted in the announcement of a new game from Marvelous, which is a rad looking beat-'em-up from Senran Kagura producer Keinchiro Takaki named Uppers. In dreary anime fashion, the...

Hanging on in there

There's a cheeky little grin on Nathan Drake's face right now as his Uncharted Collection almost scrambled to the summit of last week's Japanese software charts. The PlayStation 4 exclusive leapt into third place selling through 24,867 copies, which isn't too bad. Meanwhile, FIFA 16's launch in the Land of the Rising Sun saw it...
