Digimon World: Next Order coming to PS4 next year

[Update 2: Bandai Namco made a mistake in the announcement. The game is only heading to PS4 physically and digitally.] [Update: Bandai Namco confirmed that it was heading to the Vita as well.] Thanks to Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth's s...

Summer Lesson photo

Summer Lesson becomes a real thing

I remember back at E3, when Katsuhiro Harada and the Tekken team updated their little VR experiment, Summer Lesson. I remarked that the little tech demo featuring players nodding their heads at young teens represented pretty much ever...

Mushihimesama photo

Shmup giant Cave heads to Steam with Mushihimesama

The bullet hell genre is one of the most niche genres in gaming. Simulation, Eroge, and point and click adventure games have proven to be popular enough to make it into mainstream web news in the past decade, but the shmup fans have largely...

Street Fighter photo

Karin makes her triumphant return in Street Fighter V

Capcom have a thing for blondes don't they? Charlie Nash, Cammy, Rainbow Mika, and now Karin Kanzuki. Even the big British brawler Birdie is sporting the golden locks of a Blonde. The Ken to Sakura's Ryu is back from her last outing i...

Persona 5 photo

Persona 5 3rd PV is crazy awesome!

TGS 2015 rolls along like a hype driven Maglev train with new gaming reveals every day. Today ATLUS released another promotional video of Persona 5. Apart from showing off more gameplay and more cryptic clues behind the story of the game, ...

TGS 2014: Feast your eyes on the newest Bloodborne trailer

I know, there's all sorts of exciting new games we've never heard of yet being announced at Tokyo Game Show this year. However, any readers that know me at all, know exactly what I was waiting for. New content from From Software's upcoming...

Final Fantasy XIII photo

TGS 2014: Final Fantasy XIII trilogy coming to Steam

I think it's safe to say that I'm in the minority when I say I actually liked the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy. They were flawed and the whole Fabula Nova Crystalis affair smacked of troubling hubris on the part of Square Enix,...

Final Fantasy XV photo

TGS 2014: So this is Final Fantasy XV

Well, it took 'em long enough - the better part of a decade - but it looks like ordinary players might actually see Final Fantasy XV in playable form before the heat death of the universe. And it might even be fun, judging my the spif...

Hajime no Ippo photo

Hajime no Ippo punches a PS3 trailer right into your gut

I've never been much into boxing. It always looked so painful to watch two dudes (or ladies) smack each other in the face, even if the faces being smacked weren't mine per se. That said, boxing fiction is rife with tales of high drama and ...

Sony @ TGS photo

Here's everything you wanted from Sony's TGS presser

It wasn't all about a fifth Persona game, y'know! Quite a bit happened when Sony took the stage just before the Tokyo Game Show opened this year, to barrage our faces with sweet trailers for games known and new, as well as the fi...

Persona 5 photo

TGS 2014: Oh look, it's Persona 5's first real trailer

Took 'em long enough! Atlus has finally revealed Persona 5 with a gloriously vague anime trailer for the game, due out on PS3 - and PS4 - next year. The latest mainline entry in the Persona series will be directed by Katsura Hashino, ...

TGS 2013 Shopping photo

TGS 2013: The shopping of TGS

No game show is complete without a place where you can buy lots of branded goods. TGS is certainly no exception to that rule. While it occupies a fairly small space on the show floor, TGS' merchandise area still has plenty of things to spen...

TGS 2013 Atelier Rorona photo

TGS 2013: New Atelier Rorona comes to life

After reading countless magazine articles about the changes being made in New Atelier Rorona, it's nice to finally see them in action. The character models look fantastic, though unfortunately it'd appear as though the environments haven't...

TGS 2013 Sen no Kiseki photo

TGS 2013: Sen no Kiseki in action

It's no secret that Falcom's upcomingVita/PS3 JRPG, Sen no Kiseki, is my most anticipated game of the year. There's a lot of reasons for that, many of which I've gone over dozens of times in previous articles. I won't bore you with the det...

TGS 2013 God Eater 2 Vid photo

TGS 2013: God Eater 2 offscreen Vita TV video

I had the opportunity to go hands on with the most recent build of Namco Bandai's upcoming PSP/Vita hunting game, God Eater 2. Before my preview goes up however, I'm here to deliver an eight minute video of folks playing the game on a Vita...

TGS 2013 J-Stars photo

TGS 2013: Offscreen J-Star Victory VS footage

I wrote a short preview for J-Stars Victory VS earlier today, and now I have video of the game in action.  This is a complete single player match that I think does a good job of showing what J-Stars is all about. Check it out above an...

TGS 2013 J-Stars photo

TGS 2013: Jumping in with J-Stars Victory VS

It wouldn't be a stretch to say that nearly three quarters of Namco Bandai's Tokyo Game Show booth is composed of Shonen Jump games.  Perhaps the biggest of the bunch is J-Stars Victory VS for the PS3 and the Vita. A four player versus...

JoJo: All Star Battle  photo

Strike a fabulous pose! JoJo: All Star Battle goes west

Is this a dream? Did I get transported into another dimension!? Nope, I'm still in the real world, and I'm surprised to see that Namco Bandai is planning to release JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle in Europe and Australia in 2014. ...

TGS 2013 JDK Band photo

TGS 2013: JDK Band live was amazing

This year at Tokyo Game Show, Falcom's well loved JDK Band put on a mini live performance lasting about 45 minutes. They played six songs from their library of music, including a few newer tracks and some classics. Six members of the band ...

TGS 2013 Tales photo

TGS 2013: A look at Tales of Symphonia Chronicles

I didn't exactly have high expectations for Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, but it still somehow managed to miss them by a long shot. First, I have a confession to make. I've never actually played past the first two hours of the original Tal...

TGS 2013 Sengoku Basara photo

TGS 2013: Partying with Sengoku Basara 4

I've never been much of a fan of Koei's Dynasty Warriors series. That isn't to say the appeal is lost on me; the idea of smashing through hundreds of weak soldiers has always been an exciting one. I suppose in my case, DW just seemed to tak...

TGS 2013 Geist Crusher photo

TGS 2013: Hands on with Geist Crusher

Capcom's latest attempt at capturing the hearts and minds of Japanese children comes in the form of 3DS action game, Geist Crusher. Developed by Treasure, makers of many a classic video game, Geist Crusher is a 3rd person action brawler tha...

TGS 2013 Show Floor photo

TGS 2013: The booths of TGS Part 1

Tokyo Game show is a crazy place. It goes without saying that the show floor is constantly flooded with people running around to take a look at the next big thing. It's a sight to behold, which is why I wanted to give you fine folks a littl...

TGS 2013 Sen no Kiseki photo

TGS 2013: Hands on with Sen no Kiseki

Despite the fact that Falcom's latest JRPG, Sen no Kiseki, is hitting store shelves next Thursday, I couldn't help but hit the lines to play the demo here at TGS. For those of you unaware, Sen no Kiseki is the sixth game in the mainline Kis...

TGS 2013: Lines photo

TGS 2013: The long lines of day one

It goes without saying that Tokyo Game Show lines are some of the longest in the business. Fortunately for me, I managed to snake through them pretty quickly to make my way to the show floor. I can't say the same for my colleagues. I wante...

Tokyo Game Show 2013 photo

TGS 2013: Now taking requests

Howdy, ladies and gentlemen. Elliot here writing to you from a hotel room in Tokyo. Tomorrow begins Tokyo Game Show 2013, and with it hopefully a blur of cool news, games, and random happenings. Like last year, I'll be running around like a...

Destination Japan announces Tokyo Maximum Tour 2013

Our good friends at Destination Japan have confirmed the details for this year's Tokyo Maximum Tour, the official tour of the Tokyo Game Show 2013. The five-night escorted tour features a visit to the Tokyo Game Show, along with a full tour...


TGS 2012: Project X Zone is fanservice at its craziest

I had a pretty long list of games I wanted to hit up at Tokyo Game Show this year, and Project X Zone was right at the top of it.  A crossover between Namco Bandai, Capcom and Sega characters, Project X Zone is a 3DS game not entirely ...


TGS 2012: A little Phantasy Star Online 2 Vita footage

My hands on impressions of Phantasy Star Online 2 for the Vita will be going up on Destructoid sometime in the near future. Long story short, the game plays and looks great, and anybody with a Vita owes to themselves to download it come ea...


TGS 2012: Hands on with Soul Sacrifice

I can't even begin to count how many times somebody told me that the upcoming Vita title, Soul Sacrifice, was their game of Tokyo Game Show 2012. Having played the game for myself, I can certainly understand why that's the case though. I sa...


TGS 2012: The sights and sounds

With the business days of Tokyo Game Show finished, the show opened up today to the public. Having heard terrifying stories, I decided to avoid today and tomorrow's show out of fear of being murdered by the massive crowds. Considering how l...


TGS 2012: Gravity Rush is Game of the Year, sequel teased

I'm of the view that Gravity Rush is, and remains, one of the best games on the PS Vita, and worth a play, regardless of what you think of it in the end. Destructoid's Jim Sterling might not have cared for it as much, bu...


TGS 2012: Metal Gear Rising has some off-the-wall baddies

In case you were of the opinion that Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes wasn't ludicrous enough, Platinum Games and their work on Metal Gear Rising Revengeance has you covered, particularly in the field of having insane boss designs. ...


TGS 2012: Jojo's Bizarre Adventure ASB offscreen gameplay

Much to my own chagrin, I didn't get the opportunity to play the upcoming Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle for the PS3 at TGS. Tied up with other games and events, I simply missed my window of opportunity and Bandai Namco stopped a...


TGS 2012: Dragon Quest X photo contest winners

I know I'm not the only editor at Japanator who's enjoyed the Wii MMORPG, Dragon Quest X. Fellow writer Eric has put an obscene amount of time in the game compared to my measly 20 hours, but I love it all the same.  Much to my surprise...


TGS 2012: Tales of Xillia 2 offscreen combat footage

There are quite a few Tales of Xillia 2 demos set up in the Sony booth, so I took the opportunity to grab some offscreen footage. Try to excuse the shakiness of the video; my hands are the least steady things in the world. This parti...
