TGS 2014: Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax's console release gets two Valkyria Chronicles characters

For a second, it seemed that Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax's Sega characters for the title's PS3 and Vita release were limited to Virtua Fighter. Lo and behold, Selvaria and Alicia are now joining the game's roster. While I...

TGS 2014: Feast your eyes on the newest Bloodborne trailer

I know, there's all sorts of exciting new games we've never heard of yet being announced at Tokyo Game Show this year. However, any readers that know me at all, know exactly what I was waiting for. New content from From Soft...

TGS 2014: Final Fantasy XIII trilogy coming to Steam

I think it's safe to say that I'm in the minority when I say I actually liked the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy. They were flawed and the whole Fabula Nova Crystalis affair smacked of troubling hubris on the part ...

TGS 2014: So this is Final Fantasy XV

Well, it took 'em long enough - the better part of a decade - but it looks like ordinary players might actually see Final Fantasy XV in playable form before the heat death of the universe. And it might even be fun, judg...

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

It wasn't all about a fifth Persona game, y'know! Quite a bit happened when Sony took the stage just before the Tokyo Game Show opened this year, to barrage our faces with sweet trailers for games known and new, as...

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!

TGS 2013: The shopping of TGS

No game show is complete without a place where you can buy lots of branded goods. TGS is certainly no exception to that rule. While it occupies a fairly small space on the show floor, TGS' merchandise area still has plenty of...

TGS 2013: New Atelier Rorona comes to life

After reading countless magazine articles about the changes being made in New Atelier Rorona, it's nice to finally see them in action. The character models look fantastic, though unfortunately it'd appear as though the envir...

TGS 2013: Sen no Kiseki in action

It's no secret that Falcom's upcomingVita/PS3 JRPG, Sen no Kiseki, is my most anticipated game of the year. There's a lot of reasons for that, many of which I've gone over dozens of times in previous articles. I won't bore y...
