Have You Played… Attack On Titan: Wings Of Freedom?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Attack On Titan: Wings of Freedom [official site] is a solid 7/10 kind of game, but its concepts and combat are unusual enough that I find myself thinking about it a lot more than other, better games. In short: Attack on Titan is Spider-Man vs. Godzilla…

Blue Reflection looks a bit Sailor Moon and a lot Persona

Like Atlus's Persona games, Blue Reflection [official site] mixes day-by-day school life with turn-based battling using magic powers against monsters. Blue Reflection smooshes this into magical girl animes like Sailor Moon, with the schoolgirls transforming to explore unreal worlds and…

Warriors All-Stars crossovers with Dead Or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, and more

Having previously predicted that Omega Force's Warriors games are on a path to create hack 'n' slash adaptations of all fictional and historical stories, I feel vindicated to see that they're now rolling a load of video games into one Warriors game. Publishers Koei Tecmo today announced a PC release for Warriors All-Stars [official site], a game throwing together characters from Warriors games along with…

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk hacks ‘n’ slashes out

The year is 2037, and Parliament Warriors has just hit Steam. Having turned all known Japanese history and fiction into Warriors games, Koei Tecmo have cast a wider gaze. Following the success of a Warriors game recreating the historic 2023 by-election which started Zayn Malik's rise to power, Koei are hopeful that the supergroup of Parliament Warriors will sell strongly and spark follow-ups in each…

Tecmo Koei today confirmed a PC release and announced a release date of March 21st, also blorping up a new trailer with folks duffing up some big ol' demons. I've not played the first Toukiden myself but hear it's fairly solid Monster Hunting with a dodgy PC port…

The JRPGs of venerable studio Gust will start coming to PC next year, parent company Koei Tecmo announced today. Gust join a long and pleasing lineup of Japanese developers who once focused on consoles but are now starting to give PC a crack, which is splendid news.

Nobunaga’s Ambition Grows With Ascension In English

Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence - Ascension [official site], a standalone follow-up to Koei Tecmo's latest sim-o-strategy take on Japanese history, is now out in English. Technically it's been on Steam since March but, y'know, it takes mighty ambition to play a game in a foreign language. Nobunaga's Ambition is set during the Sengoku period of feudal Japan, having players duke it out for control…

Free Version Of Dead Or Alive 5 Out Next Week

If you missed out on playing Dead or Alive 5 Last Round [official site] because you didn't feel like paying full price for a fighter you'd probably play a few minutes and forget about, sorry about that. You still have to pay full price if you want to play the full game on Steam, but if you'd still rather not, soon you'll be able to opt…

Berserk And The Band Of The Hawk Hits February 2017

Dynasty Warriors has many faces these days, and now we're adding another to the bunch with Berserk and the Band of the Hawk [official site]. In case you're out of the loop, Band of the Hawk is blending Dynasty Warriors with Kentaro Miura's popular anime and manga series, Berserk. We originally expected the English language version to launch some time this fall, but it looks…

They Bite Me, Giants: Attack On Titan Released

I love horror films. Can't get enough of 'em. Whether it's a splatterfest of guts and giblets, or a brainful of anxious creeping dread, I'll generally find something to enjoy. I've only ever watched one episode of Attack on Titan [official site] though, because something about it makes me feel intensely uncomfortable. It's not just that its anime, it's the sight of characters screaming and…

Dynasty Warriors Dev’s Berserk Game Coming In Autumn

We've mentioned before that the epic fantasy manga Berserk was getting the Dynasty Warriors treatment but Koei Tecmo hadn't yet confirmed a release outside Japan. They have now. Berserk (working title) [official site] will be hacking 'n' slashing round our way this autumn, leaving a trail of gibs.

Romance Of The Three Kingdoms XIII Now Out In English

Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII [official site] is not new-new, having technically been out since January, but only today did Koei Tecmo release an English version. It's a tactical grand strategy RPG wargame sort of a series, now over 20 years old, based on the famous semi-mythical historical epic about China's strife during the second and third centuries. Buuut even if you're a die-hard…

Attack On Titan Game Swinging Onto PC

Attack on Titan is a manga and anime about plucky teenagers armed with grappling hooks and huge Stanley knives fighting giants with dopey grins and far too many teeth. It's pretty fun! And often horrifying. It's also a fine idea to make into a video game, so Dynasty Warriors developers Omega Force did just that. Following its debut on PlayStation 4 in Japan in February,…

Dragon Quest Heroes Coming To PC Next Month

The Dragon Quest series has a long history but most of that history is unwritten on PC. In my mind, it's the big JRPG series with the cute little Slimes as opposed to the big JRPG series with the giant chicken-things. And then I remember that the Slimes and the Chocobos are all under one roof at Square Enix these days. We're long overdue more…

Monster-Hunting Action-RPG Toukiden: Kiwami Due On PC

It seems jolly unlikely that Capcom will bring their Monster Hunter series to PC any time soon, but if you really want to hunt giant nasty things and beat them up in half-hour boss battles, Koei Tecmo will let you have a crack at their knock-off. Toukiden: Kiwami [official site], an action-RPG about hunting and murdering giant demons, is coming to PC via Steam on…
