Girls about town
Dishing out knuckle sandwiches as either Kyoko or Misako in couch co-op brawler River City Girls is immediately fun, with the combat comparing favourable to the genre favourites of yesteryear. As tends to be the case with this sort of title however, fighting the ever growing hordes of enemies on your quest to rescue the duo’s...
As if by magic
WayForward's Shantae series is a surprisingly enduring one. Originally releasing on the Game Boy Colour in 2002, the games have come a long way, despite there only being four of them. Five, if you include the freshly named Shantae and the Seven Sirens, the upcoming new instalment. The developer has shared the first details and...
You knocked me out with your brass knuckle tattoo
WayForward’s bringing a hearty helping of girl power to the PlayStation 4 from 5th September, with the refreshingly retro River City Girls. The latest in the long line of Kunio-Kun titles will flip the script, seeing high-schoolers Kyoko and Misako slugging their way through the mean streets of the...
It's a kind of magic
Fans of the hair-whipping half-genie Shantae have been pretty well served this generation. On PlayStation 4, you can play Risky's Revenge, Pirate's Curse, and Half-Genie Hero, which means you have easy access to almost every game. Following on from the latter, it seems WayForward is ready to move onto the next action platformer...
I whip my hair back and forth
The Shantae series is an odd one, isn't it? It's been around for quite some time, but never made a huge impact. The Metroidvania style gameplay and quirky writing are adored by fans, but despite being quietly very good, the games remain ignored by most. Funnily enough, you can play three of the four titles right now on...
Hair we go
If Sony's moody selection of PlayStation 4 software left you feeling a little depressed, then know that there are plenty of colourful titles in the pipeline – with Shantae: Half-Genie Hero being one such example. WayForward has released a new trailer for the PS4 and Vita platformer to coincide with E3 2016, and it's honestly looking...
Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is a 2D side-scroller in the classic Metroidvania vein, but with a whimsical story and an anarchic sense of humour that helps separate it from the pack. Taking on the role of a half-genie named Shantae, you'll spend approximately ten hours exploring various islands, solving puzzles in dungeons,...
Shantae: Risky's Revenge – Director's Cut is a PlayStation 4 port of the 2010 Metroidvania game by WayForward Technologies. Originally released on the Nintendo DSi, the title belly danced to the PC this time last year, and now it's finally the turn of Sony format fans to get their hands on the release. This is actually the second...
Shake it like a Polaroid picture
The glitz and glamour of E3 2015 may be over, but there's still plenty to look forward to on Planet PlayStation. Tuesday sees the return of the PlayStation Store update in full-force, and there'll be a tasty surprise for North American players, in the form of Shantae: Risky's Revenge on the PlayStation 4. This is...
Hair we go
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, the follow-up to WayForward’s cult GameBoy Color platformer, is set to strut its stuff on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita. Having already crossed its Kickstarter target with time to spare, the studio is now hoping to hit a couple of stretch goals. At the time of writing, the title needs to raise a...
It may seem like an eternity since we last got to play a Silent Hill title, but at least March should make up for the drought
Konami's announced that three titles in the survival horror series will release during the month, with the Silent Hill HD Collection first out of the blocks on March 6th. It'll be followed by new entry Silent Hill: Downpour on March 13th, with PlayStation Vita exclusive..
If you've been waiting desperately for more Silent Hill, then you're about to get your wish
Konami's attached dates to three Silent Hill titles that are all due to release in early 2012 — so even if the world ends before the year's out, at least you'll get your fix of the premium horror franchise. First up is the Silent Hill HD Collection, which is due out on January 24th. That game bundles the..

Silent Hill: Book Of Memories is not exactly what we expected when the game was first announced
Designed specifically for PlayStation Vita, the WayForward developed co-operative title adopts an isometric viewpoint and has players working together in order to solve puzzles and fend off enemies. While the game is a massive departure from the traditional staples of the Silent Hill franchise, the..
When we learned that WayForward was working on a brand-new Silent Hill title for the PlayStation Vita we were extremely excited
WayForward has a terrific pedigree, and we think horror games feel at home on portable systems — there's something personal about playing a good horror game in bed with headphones, right? Unfortunately, Silent Hill: Book Of Memories isn't quite what we had in mind..
WayForward's two-dimensional twist on the BloodRayne series, BloodRayne: Betrayal, has been pushed out of its "early August" release window for a firm spot at the end of the month

WayForward has officially announced Mighty Flip Champs
DX</a> for PlayStation Minis this week. The former DSiWare favourite will release on the PlayStation Network on July 12th. The game adapts to the PSP's single wide-screen by showcasing the "flip" based puzzle gameplay side-to-side. Check out the screenshot above for a better idea...
The blood will rain in Bloodrayne: Betrayal
Seriously, there's more blood in this 50-second debut trailer than most games contain in a full 20-hour campaign. Still, we suppose it makes sense — this being a game called Bloodrayne and all. The game itself actually looks pretty rad. Some of the animation is a teensy bit janky, but we like the...
