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 ...

Rejoice?! Akiba's Trip 2 might be coming to PS4 this summer

I played Acquire's open world strip-action game, Akiba's Trip 2, when it came out in Japan this past year. While it wasn't exactly a mind blowing experience one way or the other, I had my fun with it. I think there are defini...

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

I'm a sucker for RPGs that take place in modern settings. I get it, we all want to visit strange new worlds and unfamiliar places, but there's something utterly captivating about looking at normality through a less than norma...

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.

New Project Diva F 2nd trailer shows off all 36 tracks

Sega's Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd hits Japanese Vita and PS3 consoles on March 27. If you're a fan of rhythm games, I have no doubt that you probably already have that date marked on your calender. This series is popul...

Soul Sacrifice Delta launch trailer is action packed

The first Soul Sacrifice for the Vita was an interesting take on the hunting game genre. Fast paced and a bit more easy to grasp for people new to the house that Monster Hunter built, it was dark, had a fantastic soundtrack,...

Those of you who follow me on Twitter have probably read my tweets hyping up Sega's new crossover puzzle game, Puyo Puyo Tetris. A few folks have expressed confusion toward my excitement, going so far as to wonder if I'm just being sarcastic.

The reality is much more simple than that.

Puyo Puyo Tetris has kept me glued to my Vita screen for over 20 hours at this point. It's just that damn good.

by Elliot Gay

Welcome to the latest and greatest Go West!, your [why-do-I-even-try-to-be-timely] column about Japanese games, life in Japan, and Idea Factory. 

Ladies and gentlemen, this week is actually a very special one. The latest in one of Bandai Namco's biggest video game series is hitting the PS3, which means it's time to rejoice.

Self-proclaimed saviors of the JRPG, Imageepoch, have also released a brand new game. I'm sure somebody out there is probably happy about that.

Follow me as I take you for a ride on my hype train.

Go West! Sixty-Two: Put Your Guns On
by Elliot Gay

Welcome, dear readers. Today is Saturday, January 25; a very special day by all accounts. Why is it so special you ask? The answer is as simple as understanding the universe.

Today is the 62nd edition of Go West!, your [pretend this is accurate] weekly column about Japanese video games, new beginnings, and parties. 

Ok. Maybe I lied. Today really isn't all that special.

I still have a bang-up lineup of new games to talk about today, so I suppose that's something, I guess.

Let's get on with the show.
