Hands On Sekiro's Going to Be as Hard as You Fear - Or Hope
Playable for the first time, FromSoftware’s ninja-action death frenzy Sekiro was the 2018 Tokyo Game Show’s hottest ticket. Sekiro sets out its threat in the subtitle: Shadows Die Twice. On the subject of death, we were reminded of a story by Pulitzer-winner Annie Proulx, in which she sees a goat after a family visit, representing...

TGS 2018 New Ace Combat 7 Gameplay Brings the Thunder on PS4
We're loving the look of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown here at Push Square Towers. From all that we've seen, the upcoming sequel appears to be a return to the sharp gameplay and cheesy dialogue fans know and love. This is on full display in this new footage, which comes courtesy of DualShockers. In mission 7, the player must destroy...

New Devil Breaker shown off
Nero's Devil Breaker ability allows him to use several different arm attachments that will aid him as he does battle with demons.

Capcom has released a new trailer for Devil May Cry 5, and the game continues to look ridiculous and brilliant. We see the main man Dante in action in the above video, and he's looking great.

TGS 2018 Judge Eyes Has an Awesome Opening Movie
As moody as you'd imagine
Judge Eyes is shaping up to be another deliciously dramatic hit from SEGA's Yakuza Studio, and we reckon that the game's opening movie sets the tone rather nicely. Shown off just ahead of Tokyo Game Show 2018, where the title will be playable, it introduces the game's main characters in suitably moody fashion. The...
TGS 2018 The Leak Was 100% Right, Android 17 Is the Last DLC Character for Dragon Ball FighterZ
A new stage is coming too
Android 17, as he's seen in Dragon Ball Super, is the final additional character coming Dragon Ball FighterZ (unless Bandai Namco announces a second season of DLC, obviously). He's set to launch alongside Cooler later this month, and we would assume that we're going to get a confirmed date during Tokyo Game Show 2018. A...

TGS 2018 Swanky Swordsman Raphael Officially Revealed for SoulCalibur VI
Complete with mask glasses
He may have been leaked a few weeks ago, but here's the official trailer for Raphael, who returns in SoulCalibur VI. With a unique fighting style all about grace and speed, it just wouldn't be the same without him. We're loving his character design, but the glasses look a bit weird. Or is it a mask? We're not really sure...

The storm before TGS 2018
Sony’s doing something a little different with its annual pre-TGS 2018 livestream, and there’s the promise of audience members dressed as DualShock 4s – or something.
