Grab your ARCUS units: Trails of Cold Steel II is now out

Listen up, everyone: It's time for us to make the best omelet and/or egg soup in the world, because today marks The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II's arrival in North America for the PS3 and Vita. I guess this means that Elliot Cr...

Review: Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus

It’s been almost two years since I had the opportunity to play and review Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus when it finally made its way outside of Japan. With XSEED willing to port most of their games into PC, it was about time that Shin...

Aw, yeah: Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus hits PC next month

To this day, the Senran Kagura series remains on my list of games to play, since the franchise's over-the-top beat 'em up combat system (both 2.5 and 3D) and fun cast have caught my interest. Speaking of which, XSEED has finally reveal...

Review: Corpse Party (PC)

For the longest time, I never got the chance to get into the horror genre of video games. It’s not that I’m afraid of playing a scary title; it’s that most of the major ones came out on the original Playstation console, a ...

Let's bring out the punch: Corpse Party is out on PC

It's time for us to have a scary celebration as the original PC version of Corpse Party has crept its way to Steam, GOG and the Humble Store on Monday. In this case, it might not be a good idea to drink the punch. Of course, this means...

Review: Senran Kagura Estival Versus

After a year from its Japanese release, Senran Kagura Estival Versus made its way outside of Japan, making PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita owners very happy. This game is sequel to Shinovi Versus, so if you played it then Estival Versus ...

Japanator LIVE: Bikini Zombie Slaying

So I just got a copy of Oneechanbara: Z2 Chaos on the Playstation 4 and I heard it's good. So join me tonight to watch some zombie slaying action while in a bikini and/or school girl outfit. [The stream begins at 10PM Central time on ...

Review: Return to PoPoLoCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale

I never thought that I'd live to see the day when the PoPoLoCrois series would cross over with the Story of Season (formerly known as Harvest Moon in the West) games. Even though the Rune Factory titles mixes raising crops and slaying ...

Rejoice: Trails in the Sky the 3rd crosses the pond

For a second, I wasn't sure if XSEED's tweet about a priest and a nun was important since they might've been in the mood to tell a great joke. Lo and behold, this statement had a higher purpose as the company announced that The Le...

Review: Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel

Seeing a crossover game isn’t rare in 2016. During the previous years, we had games like Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, Dengeki Bunko, Anarchy Reigns, and PlayStation All-Stars. This time around, we got Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroi...

Review: The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel

It’s hard to believe that we live in a world where The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC and Trails of Cold Steel went West during the same year. This outcome has made me believe that Hell has frozen over, as this series happens ...

Love is eternal: Trails in the Sky SC launches next week

Well, folks: I'm happy to announce that we now live in a world where pigs have wings, and hell has frozen over. In other words, XSEED has revealed that The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC hits the PC and the PSN (compatible wit...

Akiba's Trip gets a release date, PS4 version crossing pond

XSEED games are really going all-out with their upcoming release of Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed. Not only have they ported the Acquire's open-world Akihabara cosplay vampire-stripping game to the English language, they've gone the...

Akiba Strip 2 has new PS4 sharing gameplay features

If Akiba Trip 2 couldn't get any crazier, along comes it's new 'share & chat' feature. It's bad enough that the game requires you to save Akihabara from the undead by striping them of clothes so that that the sun can destroy them, but ...

Review: Ys: Memories of Celceta

Falcom's Ys series is the unspoken hero of the action RPG genre.  Starring red-haired adventurer Adol, the Ys games are sprawling quests that test your reflexes as they throw you into large worlds with monsters that desire only to smas...

Senran Kagura Burst Hebijo & Hanzou trailers

XSEED has released their second character trailer for Senran Kagura Burst, this time featuring the deadly vixens of the evil Hebijo Clandestine Girls' Academy. Since they've already released another trailer for the Hanzou school, I figured...

Review: Senran Kagura Burst

I never thought any of the Senran Kagura games would make their way overseas, but I admit I was pleased to learn that XSEED would be localizing the title. Not because I'm a huge fan of the series, but rather that I hate it when pu...

Senran Kagura Bursts onto 3DS November 14th

We've known about it for awhile, but it seems XSEED games felt it prudent to remind us that Senran Kagura Burst would be hitting the Nintendo 3DS eShop next week. If you're not already intimately familiar with the series, this side-scrollin...

Corpse Party on sale and more from XSEED this Halloween

Have you been sleeping well? Been looking for a way to remedy that? As it is October and October means scary movies and stuff, right? (Interestingly enough in Japan that time is summer, actually.) So XSEED has let the prices of Corpse Party...

Review: Pandora's Tower

Just when you thought that the Wii has sang its last song; the system breaks free from the chains that control its life. Formally known as the last piece of the Triforce in Operation Rainfall’s goal, Pandora’s Tower has achieved...

Launch those trailers! Trails in the Sky SC is going west

Actually, when I meant trailers, I was talking about using a catapult to launch a bunch of trailers into the sky as a way to celebrate XSEED's new accomplishment. With the help of Carpe Fulgur, the awesome group that localized Recettea...

Feast your eyes on Ys Celceta's Limited Edition content

I honestly feel bad for not playing any of the Ys games yet. I mean, Elliot is one of the biggest Ys and Falcom fans that I know, so his influence should have infected my body by now. Thankfully, his recommendations worked, as I was able to...

Surprise Bounce! Senran Kagura Burst is coming to NA

Well played, XSEED Games, your sneak attack has rendered me vulnerable to latest video game announcement. Even if your moves were rather sneaky, the peach color wasn't enough to fool the most experience shinobis on the block. With that...

Review: Ys I & II Chronicles+

You may not realize this, but Ys I & II are video game classics that the action RPGs of today owe a helluva lot to.  Up until XSEED's partnership with Falcom, the developers of Ys, North America's exposure to the franchise had...

Start off your Valentines Day by giving Adol some love

Valentines is only two days away, and XSEED is in for some tasty chocolates. By chocolates, I am talking about the dough that they will rake in from the Steam release of Ys I & II Chronicles +. Other than giving Adol some warm company ...

Review: Corpse Party: Book of Shadows

It was a little over a year ago that I parted my review of Corpse Party by wishing that the sequel would also end up getting localised. Here we are with another game in the series in a language I understand, and while it's not a sequel per ...
