Yakuza 0 photo

Kick, punch, and crush ass through the '80s with Yakuza 0

The Yakuza games may be an institution when it comes to high-profile Japanese gaming these days, but strangely enough, they've never portrayed Japan's gangster culture at its true height, during the boom years of the late 1980s. These ...

 
 
 
Persona 5 photo

Here's E3's good and bad news about Persona 5

A lot of folks weren't expecting much Persona 5-related news out of E3, as these kinds of reveals are typically reserved for Japan-based events, but lo and behold, the company held an E3 demo stream of the game, showing off gameplay as well...

 
 
 
Gravity Rush 2 photo

Gravity Rush 2's trailer looks great, is criminally ignored

E3 is on a lot of folks' minds right now, and Sony has just held its press conference, where there was a stunning lack of Gravity Rush 2, despite the fact that a full trailer was ready and available for the taking.  Well, thankfully ir...

 
 
 
 
Summer Lesson photo

Summer Lesson is everything right about VR

Virtual Reality's a thing, right? The prospect of really putting players "somewhere else" in a more substantial way is just too appealing to dismiss completely. That said, for most of the tech demos out there, that "somewhere else" is inva...

This is Metal Gear Solid V's big trailer, and its thesis

No matter what you might think of Hideo Kojima and the series that made his name, there's no doubting that each one is something of an event, and it looks like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain won't be an exception either. The new...

E3 2014: Palutena's anime reveal is glorious

One thing I got to give the people at Nintendo, is that they know how to make a reveal for their Super Smash Brothers games. In the trailer above, we get a beautiful anime sequence of Pit and Link fighting it out. When, all of a sudden, Pi...

E3 2014: From's Project Beast is Bloodborne

This isn't to say that Project Beast is a thing you can catch from a blood transfusion gone wrong, mind. Instead, that's the true name of the new, PS4-exclusive action game from, er, From. Software. Y'know, they of Souls, both De...

E3 2014: Behold the glory of Persona Q

As if I needed any more reasons to get a 3DS, Nintendo has gone and released a new trailer for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, the Persona 3 and 4-themed dungeon crawler from the studio that brought you Etrian Odyssey.  ...

 
 
The Last Guardian photo

No, The Last Guardian is NOT cancelled

This sort of feels like one of those "Did we really even need to refute this?" kind of moments, but I suppose it's understandable, considering we're barely two days away from E3 happening. Rumormongering has hit its peak, and people are wil...

 
 
Japanator Discusses E3 photo

Japanator Discusses: E3 2013

E3's over! Well, it has been for a while, but now we've all had time to digest the news, and this being a "hardware year", there was a lot of news. News of the kind even we at Japanator pay attention to...and talk about! It's not all s...

 
 
Etrian Odyssey Untold  photo

FOE, FOE! Etrian Odyssey Untold to land in North America

With Etrian Odyssey IV being the first game that I played in the series, I was definitely excited when Atlus decided to remake the first game for the 3DS. Honestly, it was only a matter of time before Atlus USA revealed their plans to ...

 
 
Square Enix E3 photo

Square Enix delivered the goods at E3

Sure, Final Fantasy XIII: Versus has become a bit of a joke around the office. In the back of my mind I kept wishing for its awesomeness to finally be released, but never really counted on it. Although it's no guarantee of releas...

 
 
Dark Souls 2 trailer photo

Dark Souls II can't kill me soon enough

I am excited. E3 delivered a lot of goodies, but few resonated with me quite like the new trailer for Dark Souls II. What impressed me the most was the game's new approach to battle. Although the engine doesn't seem to have changed much, y...

 
 
PlayStation 4 hardware photo

So this is what the PlayStation 4 looks like...

[Update: Turns out Sony brought a lot more than a pretty box to the stage. It brought a $399 price point, support for used games and offline play, and games like Final Fantasy XV (which was Versus XIII renamed) and Kingdom H...

 
 
Kiefer Sutherland x MGS photo

Woah: Konami announce Kiefer Sutherland as Snake's voice

Well, this is a surprise. After months of practically-confirmed rumors surrounding Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Konami has gone and confirmed that indeed, David Hatyer will not be the playing the voice of Snake. Instead, Kojim...

 
 
PS4 console first look photo

Get your first look at the PlayStation 4 right here

And who said it was a bad idea for Sony not to show the actual PlayStation 4 hardware at their initial announcement? Now they have something to talk about hours before Microsoft is due to announce its next Xbox, as well as something to tal...
