Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Comes to PC via Steam on March 23rd

Wednesday, January 27th, 2021

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 will be making its long-awaited PC debut on March 23rd, as that’s when the game will be coming to Steam.

The game’s Steam page doesn’t have pre-orders open right now, but we expect it won’t be long now until they are. The trailer’s description also confirms the recent content update will be included, as well as the upcoming ones. On top of that, the next content update for the game is set to be showcased on a Japanese Puyo stream at the start of February, and we suspect Western announcements won’t be far behind.

Persona 5 Strikers Officially Announced For The West, Releases for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam on February 23rd 2021

Tuesday, December 8th, 2020

If you’re looking for the largest range of league of legends accounts for sale then you have to visit this site https://www.unrankedsmurfs.com/. They have hundreds of lol accounts with rare skins for sale, as well as plenty of lol smurf accounts for various regions. If you want to buy league of legends account for your friends to play on the rift then be sure to check out their account store. With hundreds of level 30 League of Legends accounts for sale, there is no better place to buy your LoL accounts online than Unranked Smurfs with its excellent buyer protections and payment security, as well as full account information provided with every order.

Persona 5 Strikers, knowing as Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers in Japan, has finally had a Western release confirmed. Better yet, it’ll also be coming to PC via Steam now!

Produced by Koei-Tecmo’s Omega Force, what we have here is essentially Persona 5 Musou. The game acts as a sequel to the original game (that is, the not-Royal version), to the point one of the Japanese trailers briefly flashed “P52” on the screen. Now the Phantom Thieves are tasked with helping an aggressive detective solve a new mystery, or Joker will be arrested… again. It’s certainly an interesting genre shift for a sequel, but Persona 5 Strikers seems to push the boat out a lot more than just being a typical Warriors game with the P5 license slapped on. We’re excited to get our hands on it!

The game will launch on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC via Steam on February 23rd 2021. There’ll also be a Steelbook for the game, but right now it appears that will be exclusive to Best Buy in America, and only available for the Nintendo Switch version. The Digital Deluxe version of the game allows you to play it 4 days early, and includes extra DLC content, a 40-track soundtrack, a digital artbook, and behind-the-scenes video.

The game’s website is available here.

SEGA Forever Release Crazy Taxi Retrospective Video, Running Through the Series’ History

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

SEGA have released another retrospective via the SEGA Forever account, following up on the style of the previous NiGHTS into Dreams… video that revealed a previously unseen US boxart. This time, it’s all about the Crazy Taxi series!

This one doesn’t have any ground-breaking discoveries from SEGA’s archives, but it does serve as a pretty great way to familiarise yourself with the mainline entries in SEGA’s beloved cab-em-up series. It also provides a good excuse to listen to “All I Want”, though to be fair we never need an ‘excuse’ to listen to that song.

SEGA Forever’s also promised there’s more Retrospectives on the way as part of a series, so we’ll let you know when more go up.

Upcoming ‘Golden Axed’ Revealed to Have Been Developed in Unhealthy Crunch Conditions

Thursday, October 15th, 2020

According to lead animator Tim Dawson, the upcoming release of Golden Axed is a complete surprise to him and the team responsible for it.

Originally coded in 2012, the project was created off the back of the team’s Castle of Illusion prototype which successfully kept the company afloat. Development then proceeded under the concept that it would be a “darker, bloodier Golden Axe” and the team went ahead with combining those ideas with the concept of the original game.

What followed was 2 weeks of 14 hour days and several disputes with management, who wanted the game to be something else. Tim recounts, “much less luckily we also had the lead designer who thought he was designing it, and sometimes Sanatana Mishra would have to physically block him from reaching my workstation or he’d start explaining insights he’d received playing the mobile port on the train on the way to work.”

The most harrowing story Tim recounts is showing the latest build to management:

“but the biggest gut punch came a week and a half in – combat was working, it was all on track! I was called for a meeting in the big room, so I put the latest build on the network and went to see what was up. All of management was sitting around the big table

I showed the game. grave faces

There was a pause

“where’s the wow factor” someone asked

The lead designer once again complained it wasn’t a God of War-like 3D brawler like he wanted

Someone said maybe it’d have been better to have made a prerendered video where the barbarian fought a monster.”

The full thread of Tim’s experiences making the prototype can be read on Twitter. It’s not a particularly pleasant read but it highlights some important truths about game development that cannot be ignored and it’s unfair of SEGA to promote this title as a “janky”, “buggy artifact of its time” [UPDATE: These terms have fortunately now been removed from games Steam’s description]

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2: The Ultimate Puzzle Match Announced, Coming December 8th to Current and Next-Gen Consoles

Wednesday, August 26th, 2020

The latest Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase has announced Puyo Puyo Tetris 2: The Ultimate Puzzle Match. It’ll be coming to a slew of consoles: Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

The game is a direct sequel to the first Puyo Puyo Tetris, and will include a brand new Adventure Mode with a new Story, as well as new characters.

As well as the standard Puyo (and Tetris) fare, there’ll also be new modes, such as “Skill Battle” (which actually originated in Puyo Puyo Chronicle on 3DS). This mode will involve ‘Skill Cards’ – you can get some skill cards as a pre-order bonus for the game, including some based on Sonic the Hedgehog.

The game’s official website can be found here.

Japanese PR Released for Wonder Boy – Asha in Monster World, States It’s a Remake of Monster World IV Using 3D Graphics, Also Coming to Steam

Wednesday, August 26th, 2020

Just the other day, Wonder Boy – Asha in Monster World was announced. Upon its reveal, it was billed as a new title with the involvement of the original Westone staff, and the logo seen on the game’s mailing list page (above) also suggested Asha was finally getting a new adventure.

However, Artdink have now launched their own PR for the game to Japanese outlets (under their ‘G-CHOICE’ imprint), with a slightly different story. Apparently the game will actually be a full remake of Monster World IV, using 3D graphics and voice acting. The game is however planned to feature new game modes, and will be available in a multitude of languages – Japanese, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Chinese are all listed as being included by Famitsu.

Also of note is that they list a platform that wasn’t mentioned in the English announcement – the game is planned to be released on PC via Steam, as well as the previously confirmed PS4 and Nintendo Switch releases.

It’s somewhat of a shame given how exciting the idea of a new game starring Asha was, but Monster World IV is a very good game – so hopefully this remake will do it justice. It’s that, or it’s actually Famitsu who’ve gotten it wrong – but time will tell come Saturday, where the game is set to be revealed at Gamescom.
