Nitroplus Blasterz Review photo

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...

Valhalla Knights 3 Gold gets an inexplicable trailer

I was so tempted to just post this video without comment, but that would be unprofessional, and I pride my professionalism when it comes to posting complete bullcrap. Well, "bullcrap" is a harsh word, and there are no words to describe jus...

Connect new worlds with Harvest Moon

I'm sure I could go on and on about MarvelousAQL's next entry in the Harvest Moon saga, and how its shaping up to be the most anticipated 3DS farming simulation of all time, but I'm sure anyone who really cares already knows everything alr...

A Senran Kagura cooking game? Yes, please

Unlike some outlets, we tend to approach games like Senran Kagura with an open mind -- after all, what's not to love? Two schools of busty vixens, trained in the deadly arts of Ninjutsu, who constantly battle each other while seemingly obl...

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...

Muramasa special edition  photo

Unsheathe your sword for Muramasa's special blessing

I was originally going to deliver this news in a flash, but I had to outrun an army of ninjas that were trying to keep me from achieving my goal -- I blame those cats that hindered Warmonger Josh's objectives. Luckily, they weren't able to ...

Muramasa's new dialogue  photo

Rejoice, Muramasa's new localization is a sight to behold

When Elliot told me that Ignition messed up on Muramasa: The Demon Blade's localization for the Wii, he was not kidding. And thanks to the folks at Siliconera, we are given a side by side comparison between Ignition's bland translation...


Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus getting DLC quickly

Fast off the heals of the amazing sales of Senran Kagura: Shinovi Verses comes new of two new character available for download sometime this month. You'll be able to chose from Daidouji from the Hanzou Academy or Rin from the Serpent Academ...


Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus breaks 120,000 units sold

This comes as quite the surprise. I had expected Marvelous AQL's latest Vita game, Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus, to push somewhere around 60,000 copies its opening week. According to Gamer, between digital and retail versions, Shinovi Vers...

Shinovi Versus Preview photo

First Impressions: Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus

The original Senran Kagura was not a very good game. A repetitive, paper thin experience, not even the immense amounts of fanservice could save it from mediocrity. I'll be the first one to admit that the prospect of a super fast 2D brawler ...

Go West! Week Forty-One: Professor Phantasy Boob Ninjas

Welcome back to Go West!, your weekly column about Japanese games, Idea Factory, and boob ninjas. This week? Lots of games! Feels like it's been a while since we've had such a packed week. Edition 41 brings with it a host of big releases th...


Senran Kagura: SV for the Vita is looking... colorful

You know, I gotta hand it to Marvelous AQL, publishers of the Senran Kagura action games. I certainly didn't think they had a success on their hands when they released the original game on the 3DS. Low and behold, two games and an an...


Vita Muramasa gets picked up by Aksys, Elliot celebrates

When I first played Muramasa: The Demon Blade on the Wii, I was surprised to see that the story was not on the same level as Odin Sphere. During one faithful podcast (I forgot the episode number), Elliot revealed to us that Ignition's local...


Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus' opening is... yeah

The Senran Kagura franchise is fascinating to me. Featuring a host of high school ninja girls with massive breasts, the games lack any real depth and instead rely on large quantities of fanservice to sell. The latest entry in the series, S...


Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus has four-play

Senran Kagura, why have you not been localized and in my hot sweaty hands yet? Are you afraid that the market might not like you or understand you? It's OK, I am here for you... *ahem* Moving on to something more real, Weekly Famitsu h...


There's no safe way to use Senran Kagura Burst tissues

By "safe", I mean "in public, without wrecking it or making you look like an otaku creeper". You just can't interact, or for that matter not interact with this promotional tissue box for Marvelous sexy 3DS action game Senran Kagur...
