Sonic Armour Revealed for Monster Hunter 4 Palicoes

September 18th, 2014

In what has to be one of the most bizarre collaborations in Sonic history, Sonic the Hedgehog is making a cameo appearance in Capcom’s Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate via new armour that can be equipped on your Palicoes.

The armour set also gives your Palicoes a weapon in the form of Caliburn from Sonic & the Black Knight. Apparently we all needed to be reminded that that game exists.

Also revealed is a Sonic-themed guild card which features your Palico running around a Green Hill Zone loop.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is released on 3DS in early 2015.

September 17th, 2014

A new mission mode has been announced for Alien: Isolation.

Survivor Mode tasks the player with completing certain objectives in set time limits, but the trick is they have to do all this whilst being stalked by the game’s titular Xenomorph. A full description as well as gameplay footage can be seen in the video below:

Resonance of Fate Items to be Included in Phantasy Star Nova

September 17th, 2014

Remember tri-Ace’s action RPG Resonance of Fate? The developer are resurrecting elements of the game by bringing back costumes and weapons and including them in Phantasy Star Nova on the PS Vita.

The upcoming handheld entry in the Phantasy Star series will also include Resonance of Fate characters but who exactly will make an appearance has not been revealed at this time. It had previously been revealed that Phantasy Star Online 2 characters will return as assist characters in battle.

Further Phantasy Star Nova details have also been announced. A new assistant character named Kisara will help out in battle by relaying information to you about enemy locations and strategies. The game will also have different facilities that are useful to the player in some way. These become active as you wake up allies who are in cold sleep. Some micro management also seems to be involved as shops can be upgraded to include more items as well as weapon creation.

Phantasy Star Nova launches in Japan on the 27th of November for PS Vita.

Ryu Ga Gotoku Zero Will Have Classic SEGA Games In Its Arcades

September 16th, 2014

Ryu Ga Gotoku Zero (AKA Yakuza Zero) will furnish its in-game arcades with actual SEGA arcade games from yesteryear.

Zero will include playable versions of Space Harrier, Out Run, Fantasy Zone and Hang-On and they’re also playable on Vita via remote play. It’s interesting to note that Space Harrier, Out Run and Hang-On were previously available to play in the in-game arcades of Shenmue and Shenmue II, games that the Yakuza franchise are often compared to.

Some more Zero details have also been revealed. The experience system from previous Yakuza titles has been ditched in favour of using in-game currency. Also announced is a new feature for Kiryu called Kamurocho Money Island where Kiryu must take control of other Yakuza-run businesses as a way of obtaining money.

Ryu Ga Gotoku Zero is due for a Japanese only release on PS3 and PS4. No release date has been revealed at this time.

The Ghost Blade Pushed Back Into 2015

September 15th, 2014

Dreamcast vertical shmup The Ghost Blade will have its release delayed to sometime in 2015.

Publisher Hucast has revealed that their main programmer has had to leave the team due to a “war in his country”. To be fair, I think that’s a pretty decent reason to not work on a video game. All the best to the chap in question.

Hucast have also announced that a new developer is now on board, but code will have to be re-written, hence the delay ’til 2015.

Also announced is that a new trailer is due to go live early next month. This will be the first time anyone’s seen any footage of the game since April 2013.

Regardless, this time it’s Jirard Khalil AKA The Completionist’s turn to take a look at the Mega Drive oddity that is Moonwalker. If you’ve never watched an episode of The Completionist before then be prepared for a more detailed and insightful look at the game featured:
