What a surprise.
It looks like Bandai Namco is bringing Tekken onto the mobile platform once again with the interestingly titled “Tekken”. But unlike the previous game (which was a Card-based fighter), this seems to follow the footsteps of Capcom’s Street Fighter IV release a month back and looks to be a fully fledged fighting game. But there’s a catch.
It’s a Free-to-Play title.
It’s going to be interesting to see how Namco does with giving out characters based on their rarity.
So, to those wanting to try it right away, it’s currently in Soft Launch on the Canadian Google [...]
While we will never can agree on how to pronounce the game’s name, almost everyone could agree that Dragon Ball FighterZ is really good. It’s a good looking game that heavily imitates the manga panels and animations from the anime, thanks to developers Arc System Works experience working on the Guilty Gear series- a bone-fide anime fighter. And after getting some time with the game on the show floor at PSX SEA 2017, as well as longer sessions behind closed doors, I can safely say that it also feels really good for a casual player to jump in and play.
The big problem with anime fighters is twofold- one is the appeal of anime. For most Western folks [...]
Dragon Ball FighterZ (pronounced as Dragon Ball Fighters) was a huge surprise when it was revealed on E3. But what surprised the most is that game is still in early development with only six characters available for play.
But the team at Arc System Works are still working on their take of a 3v3 tag team fighter. Today they just showcased a new trailer featuring a new character, Trunks. Trunks was first confirmed during the E3 buzz by a feature from a Japanese magazine, but this is the first video footage of him in action.
Check it out below.
In other news, Arc System Works are also working on a new 2v2 tag team game BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, bringing characters [...]
What’s a sim racing game without a modest amount of car to choose from? As long as the numbers are not too bloated with similar cars and each one looks and handles differently on the track, that is. Project CARS 2 has now been revealed to feature 180 cars on launch.
These cars are broken into 29 different motorsport series. The typical GT3, GT4 and GT1 cars, the LeMans Prototype (LMP) classes, and normal road cars are here again. New to the sequel would be more open wheel racers including Indycars, rally cars with official rallycross cars featured and more vintage offerings. It looks like a good selection, and is big step from the launch of the first game that featured [...]
Let’s go bowling! Bandai Namco has announced that the fun game mode first seen in Tekken Tag Tournament will make a return to Tekken 7 as DLC. In Ultimate Tekken Bowl, you can now bring the roster of characters into a game of bowling. While bowling mini-games might be a sour spot for some players who played a lot of Grand Theft Auto IV, when Tekken Bowl first appeared 17 years ago it was one of the most fleshed out mini-games in the series. Not to mention fun.
This new trailer showcases a bit of gameplay from the new mode, though it’s mostly just footage of series director Katsuhiro Harada showcasing his bowling skills (and how well he can imitate Paul Phoenix). [...]
It’s no surprise that the Souls series has influence a lot of Action RPG games since the series’ launch back in 2009 and Namco’s newest IP from the God Eater devs is no exception.
In the newest gameplay trailer for Code Vein, it’s showcases the player character encountering enemies, dodging and blocking moves which reminded a lot of players of Dark Soul and even Nioh. So those thinking that Vein being an anime version of their favorite series by FromSoftware would be glad to see this step in that direction.
You can view the trailer down below and the game is stated to release for PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2018.
