Evangelion x Phantasy Star Online 2 Crossover Event Revealed for Japan

Friday, November 8th, 2019

UPDATE
The event has not gone live yet. It is due to go live on the 20th of November 2019 as per details on the Phantasy Star Online 2 news page.

ORIGINAL STORY
Japanese Phantasy Star Online 2 players have a real treat on their hands as the game now features a crossover event with the Evangelion franchise.

The event features a mission based on the famous Ramiel battle where the fifth angel drills into Tokyo-3 in order to get to NERV headquarters. You can also equip your character with costumes based on Unit-01, Shinji, Rei, Asuka and Misato and there’s a choice of 4 weapon skins with one taking the form of the Lance of Longinus.

You can see all of this in action in the trailer below:

Phantasy Star Online 2 is still Japan-exclusive, but a North American released is scheduled for 2020 on Xbox One and PC. There is still no word on whether the game will release in Europe.

A Certain Magical Virtual On for PS4/Vita Being Delisted… Tomorrow

Wednesday, March 20th, 2019

It’s not a good month for SEGA games and delistings – first Judgement was the subject of of a huge drugs scandal that’s taken it off shelves, and now the bizarre Japan-only Index vs Virtual On crossover title A Certain Magical Virtual On is being delisted from both physical and digital sale too.

No reason has been given for the removal, but it’s likely down to the license agreement with Dengeki running out. There’s nothing to suggest this affects Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax: Ignition, thankfully, but if you’re itching for some new Virtual On action today’s your last chance to grab it. Currently a PS4 copy of the game will set you back about £40 with shipping from Amazon.JP, and if you’re on Vita it’s only £30 – so it might be worth jumping on it before prices start to rise (as is becoming the case with Judgement).

SEGA has referred to the delisting as “temporary”, but given the difficulty of licenses and the fact the game apparently didn’t do so well sales-wise, it’s looking too likely that it’ll be back in the short term. The upside is Virtual On fans still have ports of 3 of the games most loved entries on the way to PS4 with support for an all-new Twin Stick peripheral to boot, but losing games like this to the void of licensing is always a shame.

Unreleased Psygnosis Mega Drive Game ‘Hardcore’ Coming to PS4 and PS Vita in 2019

Friday, August 17th, 2018

In 1994, Digital Illusions were developing a game for the Mega Drive called Hardcore. The game was to be published by Psygnosis and nearly made it to release, but ultimately it was canned as Psygnosis began its focus on the next generation of consoles.

Now, a new team called Strictly Limited have been given the license to the original game data and with the help from some of the Digital Illusions developers, they will finish the game and release it for PS4 and PS Vita in 2019.

Hardcore is currently the working title of the game, but a digital and physical release has been promised. You can see the game in action by clicking the embed below:

Review: Hatsune Miku Project Diva X for PS Vita

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

projectdivaxcover

So here we are with Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X; the tenth title in the Project Diva series. That’s quite an impressive innings considering the franchise begun in 2009, but when you think about it, the core structure of these games has stayed pretty rigid since its inception so it must be pretty easy to tweak from game to game. Each title basically introduces you to a fresh playlist of songs to choose from and some additional mechanics that sometimes work well and sometimes don’t. So where does Project Diva X stand?
