Initial Impressions of Chaos Wars

By Louise . May 30, 2008 . 10:54am

On the surface, Chaos Wars may look like your typical SRPG.  Non- battle scenes are filled with stills of cute anime characters and ridiculous facial expressions while battle scenes are filled with over-the-top attacks and silly looking monsters.  Even the English dubbing is bad, which seems to be the norm for most games of this […]

Chaos Wars, now with some English

By Spencer . May 12, 2008 . 3:35pm

OK, so O3 Entertainment is really working on Chaos Wars. In fact we have an English build of it. Originally, the game was supposed to come out in the middle of May. More specifically, May 15. However, looking at GameStop, the exclusive distributor of the PlayStation 2 SRPG mashup, they claim we won’t see Chaos […]

Chaos Wars to be GameStop exclusive

By Levi . March 17, 2008 . 1:14pm

It's been long speculated that Chaos Wars, Idea Factory's crossover SPRG featuring characters from Growlanser, Shadow Hearts, Gungrave, Spectral Force, and more would be hitting the US courtesy of O3 Entertainment. An advertisement in the latest issue of Game Informer pretty much confirms this, and also reveals that the title is set to be GameStop […]

Milestone preps a shmup compilation for the Wii

By Spencer . December 26, 2007 . 7:29pm

I think we saw this coming after O3 Entertainment snuck Karous as a Nintendo Wii game back at E3. Milestone still hasn’t unveiled Karous as a Wii game, but Arcade Renaissance points out Rakuten, a Japanese retailer spilled the goods. Karous will add in light motion control plus two other games. Radio Allergy (Radilgy) and […]

A pre-emptive ode to… Chaos Wars?

By Spencer . October 2, 2007 . 12:14pm

O3 Entertainment hasn’t even officially announced Chaos Wars, although odds are good it’s coming out in English, and it’s getting buzz. I particularly like SelectButton’s thread on the whole issue where the release is summed up as “the single most brass-balls type moment in the history of gaming”. The whole issue is summed up nicely […]

Chaos Wars nearly confirmed for North America?

By Spencer . September 25, 2007 . 8:38am

It’s still hard to believe that O3 Entertainment is actually localizing Chaos Wars, but the proof is almost in the pudding. Beyond the initial rumor Gamestop has a listing for Chaos Wars saying it is coming out, possibly in November for $39.99. I really wonder how O3 is going to localize and promote this game. […]

Chaos Wars coming to the US?

By Spencer . September 17, 2007 . 5:36am

This rumor is way too strange not to report. Supposedly Chaos Wars, an Idea Factory mash up of Growlanser, Neverland (Generation of Chaos / Spectral Souls), Gungrave and Shadow Hearts (Yuri is in it), is coming to North America. Supposedly, O3 Entertainment who tried to bring Radio Allergy to the states has the rights to […]

Third party surprises on Nintendo Wii’s 2007 release schedule, Crow coming to the USA

By Spencer . July 11, 2007 . 6:40pm

Glancing over the hundred or so titles in the upcoming release schedule I spotted a few anomalies. Here are some quick bullet points:   The rumor about Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords for the Wii is real. D3 Publisher has it scheduled to come out this Fall.   Mumbo Jumbo is bringing Luxor 3 […]

Radio Allergy quietly gets the axe

By Spencer . June 4, 2007 . 2:41pm

Rockin8080 (thanks!) informs us O3 Entertainment is pulling the plug on the much delayed Radio Allergy through a forum post on their official boards.   Radio Allergy for the Nintendo GameCube has been canceled in North America. Due to the transition to new gaming platforms, retailers are no longer interested in stocking GameCube titles. Milestone […]

Radio Allergy quietly misses its release date… again

By Spencer . May 1, 2007 . 1:40pm

After slapping it with a Wii compatible label, O3 Entertainment had Radio Allergy (aka Radiligy) scheduled to come out on March 20, 2007. When March passed Radio Allergy had a new tentative date, April 27 and that day passed with Radio Allergy nowhere in sight. Delays are inevitable, but O3 is about to face a […]

Radirgy coming to North America

By Spencer . December 26, 2006 . 1:50pm

Racketboy pointed out that O3 Entertainment (they’re the guys who brought us Chaos Field) is publishing Radirgy for the Gamecube. The name is being changed to something more Western friendly, Radio Allergy, but otherwise it is intact. The Gamecube game also has enhancements like the “Manpuku Mode” where the multiplier is altered and you don’t […]
