Sony’s Pre TGS news (Persona 5, Disgaea 5, gundam + more)

So Sony did a big press conference where we got to learn a lot of stuff that us JRPG gamers would like. However, we mostly got teaser trailers so I’ll save you the trouble of having to find 500 posts that just say “this games a thing” and put them all together with quick fears or hopes. 

So the leaked Disgaea 5 image was real. As of now we are to believe the game will be ps4 exclusive although this wouldn’t be the first time a company said “Cough and in previous gens too,” Digaea 5 is intended to appeal to a wider audience (I wrote about why that’s a bad thing briefly here). I’m worried that the game will lose it’s charm by broadening and while Disgaea 5 may sell better the future of the series from that point could go way down hill. Disgaea already is NIS’s most constantly good series I don’t think they should mess with the tone of the games but i’ll pass on judging the game until it release.  

Luminous Arc Infinity was announced for the Vita. Luminous Arc one was one of my favorite DS games and while I never beat 2 I was upset to find that Luminous Arc 3 never made it to the states. This game could face the same fate and it’s always just slightly jarring when a game is know for being exclusive to one company and jumps to another. Still the Vita needs more games so good that they are getting one. 

Persona 5 got it’s first real teaser trailer showing off super pretty boy MC who looked really sad at all the people. Maybe he is sad because the game got pushed back to 2015.  The game will also be on ps4 so good news for people who sold their ps3 towards a ps4. The MC is pretty cute, but this says almost nothing about the actual game. I am assuming this is meant to show that everyone is a slave to society stuck in uniforms as they go from one place to another or something.  At the end we had some blue flames as tease to actual stuff happening but apparently that wasn’t worth showing at this point. 

Just like Nintendo the Vita is getting custom themes. Psp had hacked themes that were amazing for a while so I’m shocked this wasn’t already a thing on the vita. 

Resident Evil Revolutions 2 got officially announced with a really odd artsy teaser trailer. They say the game will not feature Jill or Chris but instead brand new characters. The games coming world wide and capcom said they will share new details soon. 

Gundam is getting a ps4 game but that’s no shock because gundam gets games on all sony systems. We know nothing about it other then it comes out 2015. 

Dragon Quest heroes was announced for the playstation 4 and 3 with a trailer that showed cool CGI and actual gameplay! It’s a cross over with Omega Force so the game will be a more or less Dragon Quest Warriors and features characters from across the series history slashing up Dragon Quest monsters.  The game will see Japanese release spring 2015 so if this excites you get ready to import because I square hates us. The game looks really cool and I can’t wait to get even more details. 

Touhou is getting a ps4 game so yay for fans of Touhou. We have almost no details but that’s because this game is going to be crafted by fans. To what degrees i’m not sure but players will be able to make things and share them. Fushigi no Gensokyo 3The Genius of Sappheiros, and Touhou Sky Arena Matsuri will be playable games but more will come. 

Well that’s everything I really thought was worth bringing up but their is even more news floating around. It looks like 2016 or late 15 will be a solid time to pick up a ps4. A lot of games are still ps3 ps4 so i’ll be holding back until their is at least 4 titles I feel are a most buy or if for some reason I find a ps4 for dirt cheap. 

Let’s talk about the leaked Smash Stuff

I was wrong, the leaks are real at least in part. With the videos taken down they are officially real.  I figure I’ll look over all the images that got leaked as well as share my thoughts on what little we have seen of the leaked characters.  But before I get to them lets looked at the leaked details. 

image

So gambling is even further in detail in this game allowing you to bet on the person with lower odds to get more money. I think that is interesting although it may be a bit discouraging knowing your odds of winning is 10%. We did learn this in a pic of the day after this only further proving these leaks are real. To help people who want to avoid spoilers the rest is under the read more. The leaks been floating around for long enough to where you know if you want to hear about it or not.

Three Pieces of Nintendo news

image

Bayonetta 2 gets a release date: October 24th we can grab Bayonetta 2 in the west. This isn’t massive news but it’s worth knowing when the game is coming out. It honestly looks fantastic, if your on the fence I recommend you check out some of the footage from this game, it really looks great. 

image

Nintendo Themes: A theme channel will be added to the 3ds in October. The theme shop will allow for people to buy a theme that will apply on the main screen. These will be attached to games Nintendo owns and so far they all look really good. With these themes we may be lucky and be able to do like what we can do on the ps3 and add custom ones. These would allow for some really amazing fan sets. 

image

The Smash double pack: This lets you get two copies at a lower price. I really hope this releases in America because then me and my brother would totally get this. Honestly we could get like two of these in my family and it would at least slightly remove the price tag attached to it. 

New Wii U bundles announced + Smash Bros club Nintendo deal

image

Alright so Nintendo is just laying on the news with PAX and that Japanese direct going on. So were getting two new Wii U bundles and both are freaking fantastic. A Wii U bundle that will be everywhere has both physical copies of Super Mario 3D world (with is maybe the best Mario game) and Nintendo Land (A party game I still play when family or friends get together). Honestly this bundle is so worth the 300 dollars it costs to snag. 

image

This bundle is Walmart exclusive but is the same as above but with Mario Kart 8 instead of 3d world. Mario Kart 8 is fantastic but Id say the one above is the better deal by a small margin. It retails at the same 300 dollar price tag making it yet another great time to get a Wii U.

image

I figured this wasn’t big enough to get it’s own post and well people buying a Wii U at this point are likely doing it for smash. So if you buy both versions of Smash Bros, register them on club Nintendo you will be sent this Smash bros soundtrack. details are a bit scarce but i’mn willing to bet soundtrack red is 3ds music and blue is Wii U music. The soundtracks may not include all the music but will be at the very least highlights. I still have my melee soundtrack from when they gave that away so I can’t wait to own this sucker. 

Shulk Break Down

image

Shulk is confirmed and he does a lot more then further confirm the leak we all know is real by this point. What Shulk also does is be a badass looking character, representing an awesome rpg, and brings unique gameplay. While i’ve yet to play Xenoblade i’m really excited to see this character make the cut. He really made a lot of sense for his inclusion and that way he was implemented was even better then I imagined. I look forward to checking him out in smash and to getting Xenoblade on my Wii or if I get a new 3ds at some point then that. image

I figured this was very relevant to discussing Shulk and I wanted to do that before I got to making horrible jokes about the screen shoots. The way his buffs work is really amazing. It gives a debuff and buff and that’s a really unique system for smash. I can already see Shulk as one of the most powerful Smash run characters given his ability to get higher jumps and then go full defense during a damaging defense event. 

image

Look at that art, so art, who needs leaks when you got art that is this art! Seriously so very very art. Anyway time for horrible jokes or what ever.

image

It’s shulk time, that’s what the people wanted right?

Super Sentai gather here at the collision of worlds.

image

So your saying Dark Link doesn’t get his own roster slot, good. 

image

In RPG world we have teams, deal with it.

So naked pile drive sound as good to you as me Luigi, ahh screw it.

Hmm I do believe it was a time that started with an R…

Kirby fighters Deluxe out now

Kirby Fighter Deluxe formally know as Kirby Fighters Z is now on the Eshop.  The game is takes the mode in deluxe and expands on it, they also are relasing Dedede’s drumb dash deluxe today. They are going for 7 bucks each with is a bit to rich for my blood. The game got midcore reviews and I think it would be more fitting as a 5 dollar title. Regardless it’s on the Eshop now for anyone who wants it to enjoy. For more details you can search kirby on my blog or check out the reviews your self.

New 3ds and 3ds LL confirmed

image

Not shockingly a new version of the 3ds is going to be released. It’s just called “New 3ds” and it enchances all the 3ds’s standard features (Display and all), the 3d now works for more angles, adds a second stick, zr, zl buttons, makes the bottom screen aimboo compatible and the small size has a really awesome throw back to the super nintendo controller.  This new 3ds is likely to fix the problem with any future Wii U cross over games as well as remove any legal problems that had with older additions. Honestly we needed these features but having to whip out another load of money for the system is something i’m not sure if people will be willing to do. I know I’m not willing to just buy this even if it will enchance several games including smash bros. My main issue is that in these co-op and vs games that they are promoting these new features will give the people with the new 3ds the edge. Still the over all upgrades seem worth it being called an upgrade, more so then an XL in my mind. 

Japanese Nintendo 3ds direct at 5 am central tomorrow

It looks like Japan is getting another exclusive 3ds direct given the timing of the direct being 4am pst with is the time zone Nintendo of America is based in. I will update if were getting an English version but other wise it appears this will just be for Japanese audiences. We may see a new Japanese only game, hear more about Forbidden Magna, maybe some Yoki Watch 2 dlc, some fantasy explores (although they had a live stream today showing new content) and a bit more. I don’t think we will see a character revealed for Smash Bros but with the release of the game in Japan being 15 days from now it’s very possible. Id just find it odd if it wasn’t in a global event. Still maybe now they are going to just go “Screw it Americans saw the leak.”   With Pax also happening tomorrow it could be that they reveal it in Japan early and in america shortly after to kick off their Pax. Still I don’t expect to much major news form Pax or this direct but we will see very soon. I’ll be reporting anything I think is interesting so stay tuned.
