Fruit Basket! Kamen Rider Battride War II gets Zenith Arms DLC

I had mix feelings with the original Kamen Rider Battride War game. While the first title's playable Riders were very close to the ones from the TV series, Battride War felt like an incomplete game. Thankfully, Battride ...

Mobile Suit Gundam: Side Stories has a new 9 minute trailer

Bandai Namco's latest PS3 Mobile Suit Gundam game is going to be one hell of a package. Gundam: Side Stories isn't just a single game, but rather a collection of six new and remade old titles from the Side Story series. I ha...

New 5 minute Persona Q trailer is too hype

The past few months of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth trailers have been fairly brief. Character overviews, brief bits and pieces of battles; there hasn't been a beefy video exploring the entire game in quite some time. ...

Meiji era Ace Attorney game gets its first trailer

Ace Attorney is easily one of my top five favorite video game series. It's weird, it's got fantastic characters, and the music gets my blood pumping at all the right times. I loved Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, and to say I ...

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment trailer #4 is filled with gameplay footage

I may not be terribly fond of giant franchise that is Sword Art Online, but even I can respect something for being ridiculously popular across a wide variety of demographics. With Bandai Namco's Sword Art Online: Hollow Frag...

Second Taiko no Tatsujin 3DS game announced

Taiko no Tatsujin is great. You may not know it, but there was once a time when these games, albeit with an altered soundtrack, actually made it out of Japan. Unfortunately for us, this stopped years ago, but Japan has contin...

New Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth scans surface

by Elliot Gay

Welcome back to Go West!, your [yet again not] weekly column about Japanese video games, sushi, and longingly gazing outside at the soon-to-blossom cherry trees.
