Power, skill, and spirit
Not missing out on the hype of E3 2019, publisher XSEED Games has pumped out an English trailer for Granblue Fantasy Versus. The gorgeous looking fighter's on full display here, and although it still doesn't have a Western release date, it's nice to see the marketing machine kick in. It can't be that far away. Are you hyped...
The adventure continues
Publisher XSEED Games has confirmed that the upcoming PlayStation 4 ports of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II will have cross-save functionality. This means that you'll be able to transfer save data from the PlayStation 3 or PS Vita versions of the games. it's a...
Set for early 2019
Fans of Japanese role-playing games rejoice, for two top tier titles are heading West. Originally released on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II made the jump to PlayStation 4 earlier this year in Japan, and now the remasters have been confirmed...
Action title delay confirmed
Dynasty Warriors-esque action title Fate/Extella Link has been hit with an inevitable delay in North America and Europe. The PlayStation 4 and PS Vita sequel to the really rather good Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star was due to launch in the second half of this year, but now publisher XSEED Games has confirmed that it's...
Just beat it
If you're a fan of Japan and its wonderful culture then you'll probably be aware of Akihabara, a district in Tokyo filled with all manner of delights that will get any otaku salivating at the thought of it. It's a haven for geeks with plenty of shops filled with anime, manga, collectable cards and figurines, as well as maid cafés for...
At its core, Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star is Dynasty Warriors set in cyber space. Three factions battle it out to decide who rules the brightly coloured digital world, and each army is spearheaded by anime-style representations of mythical and historical figures. You'll see legendary Chinese general Lu Bu clashing with Joan of Arc...
There are a lot of Japanese games launching in early 2017, but even though the start of the year is looking swamped, we'd recommend keeping an eye on Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star. A hack and slasher that's very Warriors-esque in its structure - featuring interconnected battlefields stuffed with grunts and boss enemies - The Umbral...
There's always a butt
Senran Kagura Estival Versus is the first time that the series has bounced onto a home console, and in many ways, it's dressed itself up for the big occasion. Estival Versus exudes a level of polish – particularly in terms of presentation – that previous PlayStation title Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus simply didn't possess...
The girls are back in town
Fans have been waiting for what feels like an eternity, but the moment has finally arrived: Senran Kagura Estival Versus has confirmed release dates for its arrival here in the West - and it may actually be coming a little sooner than you might have thought. The brawler will bounce onto PlayStation 4 and Vita on the...
Blast this patchwork world
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is the latest fighter to take to the PlayStation 4, featuring 12 characters from the visual novels of Tokyo-based Nitroplus. Typically, the title is set up to show fans what could happen if their favourites were brought together to lay down beatings, so what makes this game...
The bugs are back in town
Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair is glorious in its stupidity. It's easily one of the worst looking games on the PlayStation 4, its general gameplay is incredibly basic, and quite frankly the whole thing's bloody mental. You rarely see such madness on home consoles these days – but all of this is part of...
No tongues, mind
By this point, those of you reading this probably understand what Senran Kagura: Esitval Versus is all about. The latest instalment in the somewhat controversial beat-'em-up series, Estival Versus released earlier this year in Japan. Essentially a title in which buxom young female ninjas kick the the living daylights out of each...
Physical copies, too
It may have taken a while, but Senran Kagura Estival Versus finally has a European release date. The brawler, which features female ninja smashing the absolute snot out of each other, will launch on PlayStation 4 and Vita in the first quarter of 2016. It's a shame that we don't have a more precise date, especially given that...
Devil don't care
The Onechanbara series has been around for a while in Japan, shamelessly fusing ridiculous combat with girls in skimpy costumes for a good 11 years now. It's safe to say that it's a franchise that knows what its fans want, and as such, it's never tried to move away from its aforementioned core concepts. The same is true of its...
This is next-gen
Ah, Kenichiro Takaki, the rather bombastic mind behind the Senran Kagura series. Unsurprisingly, when he isn't busy talking about women, he's probably busy thinking about them, but in a recent interview with PlayStation Universe, he was actually contemplating something different: the power of the PlayStation 4. "Simply put, with...
Something something Japan
Maybe it's the writing, maybe it's the voice acting, we don't know - but we bet a lot of people who watch Onechanbara Z2: Chaos' Western announcement trailer will think that it looks a bit cheap. Production values aren't everything, of course, and we reckon it does look like it could prove to be fun in a very over the top...
The w*nking dead
Described by its publisher as a "sexy zombie slayer", Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is heading West courtesy of XSEED Games. Essentially a hack-and-slasher that's not afraid of some, er, raunchy content, you play as various members of the "bikini zombie squad" and take the fight to the undead hordes. Typically, you can upgrade your...
This ain't heaven
With such a miserable and lacklustre franchise history, you’d be forgiven for expecting Valhalla Knights 3 to fall short of almost all expectations, and unfortunately, you’d probably be right. Where does this apparently doomed franchise keep making wrong turns – and has anything improved over the three years since the last...
XSEED has announced that the localised version of Unchained Blades will be unleashed on the PlayStation Portable next week. The game – built by a dream team of Japanese developers – will be available from the PlayStation Store for $29.99. Unfortunately, XSEED was unable to confirm whether the game will be Vita compatible. It’s...
Off the hook
XSEED’s uber-niche first person dungeon crawler Unchained Blades is set to slash its way onto the PlayStation Network this spring. The PSP JRPG – created by a star-studded development team – follows the adventure of Fang, a haughty dragon emperor who loses his powers when the goddess Clunea witnesses his arrogance. The game...
