Digimon All-Star Rumble's new trailer is all about the Supers

Back when Bandai Namco announced Digimon All-Star Rumble for the PS3 and 360, I ended up having mixed feelings on the news. On one side, it's neat that we're getting a multiplayer party brawler where we can fight as our favo...

Hajime no Ippo punches a PS3 trailer right into your gut

I've never been much into boxing. It always looked so painful to watch two dudes (or ladies) smack each other in the face, even if the faces being smacked weren't mine per se. That said, boxing fiction is rife with tales of ...

Here's everything you wanted from Sony's TGS presser

TGS 2014: Oh look, it's Persona 5's first real trailer
by Josh Tolentino

Took 'em long enough! Atlus has finally revealed Persona 5 with a gloriously vague anime trailer for the game, due out on PS3 - and PS4 - next year.

The latest mainline entry in the Persona series will be directed by Katsura Hashino, feature character designs from Shigenori Soejima, and music composed by Shoji Meguro. 

From the looks of the trailer the setting appears to be returning to the big city, with a prominent shot of a Shibuya-style pedestrian scramble, during which a young, protagonist-looking high-schooler wearing a blazer-based school uniform experiences some good ol' frozen time and that telltale summoning fire. The color palette leans on red, black, and white (differing from Persona 3's blues and Persona 4's yellows), and all the text features the breaking of chains and shackles, reinforcing earlier taglines about "emancipation". 

Not especially fond of the title font, but that's just me nitpicking at this point. Watch the trailer and get hype!
