Japanese PS4 Trailer photo

The first Japanese trailer for the PS4 appears

How's that PS4 of yours treating you? Still trying to get hold of one without having to go all-in on a pricey bundle? Completely uninterested? At least we have the freedom of choice at this point, as poor old Japan still has to wait until ...

 
 
Soul Eater Not! photo

Here's the first promo trailer for Soul Eater Not!

I think we've been long overdue a return to the weird and wonderful world of Soul Eater, and after almost five years since the end of the original series we finally have that long awaited sequel. I mean remake. Wait, what is this again? A ...

Zelda is back for Smash photo

Princess Zelda returns in Smash Bros. as a stand user?

The official Smash Bros. website has been slowly drip-feeding new information into the public in tandem with Masahiro Sakurai's Miiverse account for quite some time now, but to coincide with the Japanese launch of A Link Between Worlds...

 
 
Final Fantasy 6 iOS photo

JUMP FESTA shows off Final Fantasy VI Mobile

Square Enix's focus on mobile platforms continues, with the remake of Final Fantasy VI looking closer to completion. It's a shame that it couldn't be a brand new game built with the platform in mind, but hey, VI is certainly not a bad game...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 12 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time Ep. 12

Golden Time continues to be as addicting as it is relentless, luring you back week after week just to see Banri, Koko or both do something absolutely baffling. But yet you can kind of understand. You know it's wrong, but you know why it's h...

 
 
Saki Zenkoku-hen Trailer photo

Ron! Next season of Saki gets a teaser trailer

So then folks, who has been keeping up with the Saki anime? Shame on you if you haven't, because it really is the show that caters to everyone's tastes. Moe? Check. Crazy special powers? Check. Not so hidden yuri moments? Check. Mobile sui...

 
 
Battle of Z Trailer photo

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z trailer arrives at JUMP FESTA

What's this? A new face in a Dragon Ball Z game? Indeed there is, as the latest installment of the console beat-em-up games will feature Beerus from the most recent film; Battle of Gods. There seems to be quite a substantial collection of ...

 
 
Bodacious Space Pirates photo

There are Space Pirates in this rather Bodacious trailer

I have a confession to make. I haven't actually watched Bodacious Space Pirates before.  Yes, that's right, which is kinda odd even for me as it looks like just the right kind of dumb that I'd be into. It might just be me, but all I s...

 
 
DW8: XTREEEEME photo

Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends is heading west

Want to get back into Dynasty Warriors before the intriguing Hyrule Warriors hits the shelves next year? You're in luck, as the Xtreme Legends expansion to Dynasty Warriors 8 will be making its way out of Japan, where it was launched at the...

 
 
Chu2koi2 Trailer photo

Chūnibyō sequel gets a new trailer

It might be a case of 'blink and you'll miss it', but hey, it's enough to get me excited! It's almost time for the delusions to return, so we've been gifted with the finest seventeen seconds of video from Kyoto Animation in preparation for...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 11 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time Ep. 11

Oh Koko, what's going on in that head of yours? I feel that you're probably not as complex as you seem, and after a couple more episodes we'll likely get to the bottom of it all. In the meantime, you're going to continue to baffle us with y...

 
 
When Marnie Was There photo

Ghibli's 2014 film is revealed by TOHO

Sure, we may still be waiting for both The Wind Rises and The Tale of the Princess Kaguya to venture out of Japan, but let's forget that for a minute and get excited for another new film! Film distributor TOHO has recently revealed its line...

 
 
Video Games photo

Review: Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers

I was really excited to play Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers, as it seemed like a great way to finally learn all about this famous, zodiac-inspired series. While I had some knowledge of the show from the odd video and passing mention, I'd never...

 
 
Super Mario 3D World photo

Super Mario 3D World's 6-5 is beaten in just 28 seconds

Watching speed runs is a guilty pleasure of mine, and I can certainly appreciate the effort that goes into finding exploits and the ways to best utilise them. If you've ever seen the Super Mario 64 speed runs where you can pass through loc...

 
 
Hunter x Hunter x P&D photo

Hunter x Hunter invades Puzzle & Dragons

Puzzle & Dragons continues to show its dominance of the Japanese casual game scene with yet another collaboration, this time recruiting the help of some young and talented hunters. Killua and Kurapika of Hunter x Hunter fame will be ava...

 
 
Space Galaga for iOS photo

Galaga plus Space Dandy equals kinky Statue of Liberty?

Galaga is a pretty great game. It's one of the staple titles of a good arcade, and one that I've put way too much money into whilst growing up. With the recent addiction for developers remixing classic games like Pac-Man and Space Invaders...

 
 
FE x MonHun photo

Fire Emblem lends Monster Hunter Frontier G some threads

The MMO iteration of the popular Monster Hunter series never did release outside of Japan, so here comes a partnership with Nintendo to rub a handful of salt in the wounds. Remember that rather popular Fire Emblem from earlier this year? J...

 
 
Gran Turismo 6 Opening photo

The opening video for Gran Turismo 6 is stunning

Did you know it's been over three years since Gran Turismo 5 was released? Time sure flies, but fortunately for car enthusiasts the waiting is already over. As of today, Gran Turismo 6 is available, marking what'll be the series' final rel...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 10 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time Ep. 10

Well played, Golden Time. You've successfully managed to give us just enough of what we wanted from the shock ending of the previous episode without turning the rest of the series into emo-Banri versus the world. What this has done is chang...

 
 
Cancelled Ghibli Film photo

Art revealed from Ghibli's cancelled Pippi Longstocking

Did you know that Ghibli legends Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata were once creating an animated adaptation of Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking? This was back in 1971, and while the duo had been co-directing episodes of Lupin III and ha...

 
 
AA: Little Busters! photo

Annotated Anime: Little Busters!: Refrain Ep. 9

What do you all think about the supernatural and complex plot we've found ourselves in? You could say it was pretty obvious something like this would happen, what with Key's track record, but I'm not sure I've ever seen something so...hard ...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 9 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time Ep. 9

Besides Golden Time, I'm currently watching Hunter x Hunter, Kill la Kill and Little Busters!, but I can say with complete honesty that the former has firmly become the highlight show of each week. Which is kinda saying a lot, because I'd g...

 
 
Eva 3.33 Dub Trailer photo

Pirate Asuka is dubbed in a new Evangelion 3.33 trailer

Ahoy me hearties! Ready to see Captain Asuka take this battle into space? No problem at all, as Manga UK have released a new trailer featuring the English dub cast for Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo. There's still a little bit of time...

 
 
P4A: Ultra Suplex Hold photo

Check out the opening for P4: Ultra Suplex Hold

Opening movies for beat-em-ups are great, aren't they? It feels like a ritual to give them a watch before heading into the main game, checking out what story is on offer and which characters look cool to use. Chances are you already know a...

 
 
Project DIVA F 2nd photo

Project DIVA F 2nd will take the stage in March

It's surprising no one that there will be yet another Project DIVA game heading to home consoles, and it might just be the last release before we see it head to next gen consoles. But why waste a perfectly good dancing engine? It's good for...

 
 
AA: Little Busters! photo

Annotated Anime: Little Busters!: Refrain Ep. 8

Tired of Kyousuke being miserable all the time? Not to worry, because he doesn't even turn up for this episode. Fine by me, but it means we are faced with cleaning up his mess instead, which proves to be a bigger problem than it sounds. Ha,...

 
 
Shingeki no Racing photo

Attack on Horse Racing

Are you familiar with the Japan World Cup? If not, you should check that out before you continue. Good? Good! Now, you might be thinking that a collaboration between that and Attack on Titan may be an odd one, and well...you'd be right. It ...

 
 
HxH: -The Last Mission- photo

Hunter x Hunter: -The Last Mission- gets a teaser trailer

You know, considering the premise for Hunter x Hunter: The Phantom Rouge was actually pretty good, it was even more of a shame that the film turned out to be such a let down. I mean, it wasn't awful or anything, but it really felt unnecess...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 8 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time Ep. 8

Ha! Take that, folks who thought that only Linda and Koko were viable romantic interests for Banri! Now that we have confirmation that he's in a relationship with Mitsuo, what lies in store for the rest of the cast? Does this have something...

 
 
AA: Little Busters photo

Annotated Anime: Little Busters!: Refrain Ep. 6 and 7

Kyousuke hasn't really been that prominent in Little Busters!, even though his leader status and relation to Rin would suggest otherwise. No, instead he's taken a back seat to Riki, and now that he's finally getting a lot of the attention i...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 7 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time Ep. 7

So I might have been a little harsh on Banri last time around, and while I still think that he made some pretty poor decisions, I'm coming around to the reasoning behind why he flew off the handle. But hey, that doesn't mean I regret talkin...

 
 
Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate photo

Dead or Alive heads to arcades after 13 year absence

Thirteen years! I may not be that knowledgeable of the fighting game scene, but that seems insane! But hey, it's apparently true, though Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate: Arcade is due to break the series' absence from arcades.  To help entic...

 
 
 
Grimecraft - POKÉP photo

Check out POKÉP for Pokemon tunes with punch

When you were exploring the brand new Kalos region and hunting for new pokémon, did you ever wish that the music featured more trap and bass? I'm going to admit up front that I have absolutely no idea what that even means, but that'...

 
 
Nintendo Network ID photo

3DS to get Nintendo Network IDs this December

The 3DS is a wonderful little handheld, but with Nintendo showing more of an interest in digital distribution, it was becoming increasingly worrisome that Nintendo Network IDs had not been introduced. This isn't because of the annoyances th...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 6 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time Ep. 6

I don't think it's a huge secret that I'm really enjoying my Golden Time. Sure, Banri isn't a massively original character, but then he does work hard to make himself stand out from the other amnesiac protagonists. In fact, that may be most...

 
 
AA: Little Busters 5 photo

Annotated Anime: Little Busters!: Refrain Ep. 5

What is it with those cat ears that Rin randomly sprouts from her head? Perhaps she's part cat, and her arc will turn into something really creepy once we meet her parents. Most likely, she's just an extra for Strike Witches. We just have t...

 
 
Automatic shiny pokémon photo

Pokefan creates an automatic shiny Pokemon finder

Those of us who haven't been so fortunate to catch shiny Pokémon during normal playtime may have been glad that the encounter ratio seems to have been tweaked. Horde battles increase the number of times you can roll that random numb...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 5 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time Ep. 5

It's great to see that Kaga is cheering up a little after that soul-crushing meeting in the previous episode, but with that, it seems that the plot is starting to get a little thicker. New things are being added left and right, and things a...
