However, a handful of sources are pinpointing the start of Shu’s journey in April as part of Toonami’s 10PM-ish timeslot.

In addition to the five characters from the Xbox 360 game Shu and company will be accompanied by at least three more shadow users.

By Spencer . February 29, 2008 . 5:00pm

And Cartoon Network gets it. No show times have been announced, but it will appear before 11PM since it’s not part of Adult Swim. Perhaps, Blue Dragon will be an addition to the shrinking Toonami lineup?   The timing is spot on too because the Blue Dragon series started airing in Japan last spring. Now […]

Shadow of a Blue Dragon Plus translation

By Spencer . February 22, 2008 . 12:52am

After the panel on Lost Odyssey I approached Ray Nakazato, the speaker and president of Feelplus, to ask him how Blue Dragon Plus was progressing. He said things were going good and the title is “half Feelplus and half an external company.” Afterwards I asked if XSeed would be localizing it for North America.   […]

The brains behind Blue Dragon Plus

By Spencer . December 24, 2007 . 12:20pm

In Kage Batsudou Taikan! Blue Dragon – Kiwamero Fire Crisis you can take your aggression out on Nene by throwing air punches at the screen. Does the set up sound familiar? Bandai used a similar formula for their Dragon Ball Z plug and play TV games. To play the Blue Dragon TV game you need […]

Microsoft announced the second pack of Blue Dragon content is now available to purchase for 200 Microsoft Points.

Take a look at […]

A quick reminder that Wild ARMs 5 with the original Japanese theme song in the game should be in your local retailer by the time you read it. I know Persona 3 has been fomenting excitement in the RPG community, but this deserves a fair share of attention too. Look for Wild ARMs 5 stuff […]
