Namco Bandai’s second Accel World game and the third Japan-only Kinect dancing game from Boost On are heading to stores too. If you like run and gun games give Gunhound EX a look.

  • Hollowkoopa

    They got a better cover than us.

    • No. For once, I respectfully disagree. Our cover is much, much better!

    • fearlubu

      alternate cover is way better.

    • DesmaX

      But look at that Raiden image. It’s so poorly cutted

      • Solomon_Kano

        How ironic, considering Rising is all about cutting lol.

  • Gundams. I read Bloody Vampire as Blood the Last Vampire.
    Excitement was had.

  • Solomon_Kano

    FINALLY! Skulls of the Shogun has been on my radar forever. Sadly, it came far too late since I’ve already gotten rid of my 360 — twice. So I do hope that people pick it up. It looks good. I also recall reading an interview about it on here and it turns out there’s some cool people behind it, too.

    • There are! The main force behind the team is an awesome guy who’s worked on stuff like Space Channel 5, Rez, Boom Blox, and Illusion of Gaia. Their new name (17-Bit) and logo are great, too.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Whoa. I didn’t even know they changed their name. I’d still been calling them Hidden Temple. That logo is sweet!

  • キロ

    I look forward to it, it looks very interesting! ^^

    Cheers to Sony Japan for the successful All-Stars…

    • Tonton Ramos

      Unfortunately it will not last long coz SSB4 is coming near and reveal screenshots in E3. Japan will now focus on SSB4 after E3. But I still give cheers for Sony if they sell this game even more in Japan.

      • HassanJamal

        I dont think people are just gonna stop playing PSASBR after the announcement. They might as soon as the game drops though.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Ohhh. 3DS is not having any release this week. This makes me wonder how will 3DS fare considering PSP, PS3, PSV and even Wii U had some kind of release here.

    • ronin4life

      It still has Animal Crossing, so I wouldn’t worry for it…^.^

    • samael789

      No matter what you personally think about Pokémon, X/Y in October will SELL. Like A LOT.

      A slow week here and there in the beginning of the year won’t kill it.

      EDIT: Oh, and plus they did confirm (once again, for those that missed it) a version of Smash Bros. for it.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Lol, i am not araid of 3DS dieing there lol. I am just thinking do DS also had this barren month during it’s second year? As this is not a really healthy ecosystem for the system.

        Well, maybe i just overseeing thing here. Hope that more smaller company will also come to 3DS and support the machine here.^_^

  • OverlordZetta

    So, what’s Sengoku Hime like?
    I’m needing some new Vita games.

  • I have my eye on gunhound ex. Are you going to do a review/impressions article on it?

  • I’ve been looking forward to trying Gunhound. I hope they release it in the states so I can support it if its good.

  • Göran Isacson

    Think it will be interesting to see how well this fighter sells over there, mostly because there aren’t that many Japanese icons in the cast. Will they be openminded to it, or shall it fall by the wayside?
