Attack On Titan 2 will indeed swing onto PC

What if Spider-Man had a jetpack, even more angst, and two giant Stanley knives to hack at the necks of his foes? Well, it'd either be a return to the xXxtreme '90s spirit for Marvel Comics, or more Attack On Titan. Koei Tecmo today confirmed that Attack On Titan 2 [official site], the sequel to their 2016 swing-o-slasher, will indeed be released on PC. This…

Attack On Titan 2 hoping to devour you in early 2018

Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom was one of my favourite games of last year and certainly the biggest surprise. It did a wonderful job of capturing the movement and combat of the anime, which is about jetpack-propelled soldiers with swords and grapples hacking off the limbs of naked giants. Now Koei Tecmo have announced that a sequel is on the way. Attack On Titan…

Hack ‘n’ slash history: Dynasty Warriors 9 PC confirmed

Historical(ish) hack 'n' slash Dynasty Warriors 9 [official site] will indeed be released on PC, Koei Tecmo confirmed today. As is the way, Dynasty Warriors 9 will cut through hordes of enemies in a setting based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms, the myth-o-history telling tales of Ancient China. This time, the action is going open-world. Developers Omega Force are also whacking in climbing and…

Dragon Quest Heroes II is out (with some sad at co-op)

Dragon Quest Heroes II [official site] came out yesterday, you know. It’s part of that hack-happy, slash-happy RPG series with the most videogame name imaginable. In keeping with the series, there’s much ‘save the kingdom’ lark combined with large-scale battles in the Dynasty Warriors style, thanks to the developer being behind both franchises. But the new thing for the series – 4-player co-op multiplayer –…

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…

Toukiden 2 brings more monster-hunting to PC

Omega Force are back with more Monster Hunter-ish action in Toukiden 2 [official site], released today. It's an open-world hack 'n' slash action-RPG set in a Japanese medieval fantasy world, where players need to roam around around murdering giant demons by hacking off bodyparts. It's the small pleasures in life. Here, have a peek in this trailer:

Dragon Quest Heroes II will slime PC too

Square Enix have announced a PC release for hack 'n' slash action-RPG Dragon Quest Heroes II [official site], which previously they'd only confirmed for PlayThings. It's a spin-off from Dragon Quest, taking that RPG's setting into hack 'n' slash action made by Dynasty Warriors developers Omega Force. I believe Dragon Quest Heroes is a bit more RPG-y than most of Omega Force's games but is…

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…

Berserk Game Shows Off More Carnage

Koei Tecmo's upcoming Berserk and the Band of the Hawk [official site] has me giddy like a schoolgirl. I never got around to picking up Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage back on the Dreamcast and really regret not doing so when I found it at Half-Price Books, so this'll be my first proper Berserk game. I just know that once it's released and it's on…

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.

Dynasty Warriors Spin-Off Berserk’s Trailer Gets Gibby

How do you like your claymore-wielding, lone-fighting, cape-sporting dark fantasy renegades served? If it's with a penchant for murder, a desire to slice scores of forest-dwelling monsters in half, and a want to spill as much blood as is single-handedly possible, then Berserk has you covered. In case you missed the E3 reveal (you didn't, though, because you bookmarked our E3 2016 news tab, didn't…

Next Dynasty Warriors Spin-Off Based On Berserk Manga

When it comes to lone mercenaries that feature in dark fantasy manga series, Guts is a fantastic name, don't you think? He's the co-protagonist of Berserk, see, a mature fantasy affair first published in 1989 that's known for its adult themes and graphic violence. It includes a whole load of murderin' basically, which is why developers Omega Force's decision to base their next Dynasty Warriors…

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 Arrives On PC

Given the fact the Dragon Quest series now spans four decades, it seems a shame that it's featured so little on PC over the years. The latest series offering - action-RPG spin-off Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe [official site] - marks the first to arrive on Steam (dubbed Slime Edition) and is out now. Think typically whimsical, triumphalist, equal parts irritating/inspiring fantasy characters…

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…

Hack, Slash & Port: Samurai Warriors 4-II Announced

Japanese publishers Koei Tecmo have been pretty good about releasing PC versions of their games in recent years, though their ports can leave something to be desired. Still, good on 'em, and I'm glad to see Samurai Warriors 4-II [official site] is coming our way too. Today they announced a western release for the latest in the semi-historical fantasy hack 'n' slash series, which is…

History With Dragons – Bladestorm: Nightmare On PC

If you've been looking for a goofy fake video game name to use in a joke I'm sure would be hilarious (I believe in you), bad news: the name Bladestorm: Nightmare is taken. On the other hand, if you're looking for a half-historic, half-zany, real-time tactical murderfest from the folks behind Dynasty Warriors, good news: Bladestorm: Nightmare [official site] is coming to PC. It'll have…
