Valkyria Revolution Collector's Edition


Attention, soldiers! Prepare for battle in the coming months, because Valkyria Revolution is launching in the Americas on June 27 for PS4 and PS Vita! Our previous PS.Blog post covered how the game is quite literally a revolution from previous Valkyria games, but let me give you a brief refresher before you charge once more unto the breach.

First things first: Valkyria Revolution is not a sequel to the Valkyria Chronicles series. “Spinoff” would be the right word. It takes place in a whole different timeline, continent, and universe than its predecessors, but familiar elements — such as the precious mineral ragnite and the legendary beings known as the Valkyria — make a return.

Persona 5 Premium Edition Unboxing

Official Persona 5 “Take Your Heart” Premium Edition Unboxing 

 Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high-schooler – attending class, after school activities and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self;” the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears. [AtlusUSA]

Toukiden 2 Is Available Now!

Toukiden 2 is available today! For PS4, PS Vita & PC Steam. (PS4) (PS Vita) (PC)

In Toukiden 2, players will assume the mantle of a mysterious Slayer who has awakened after a ten-year slumber to a world shrouded in darkness. Players’ battle skills and strategic acumen will be put to the ultimate test as they strive to save humankind in a vast and dangerous land known as the Otherworld, a tattered landscape divided into six distinct Ages which each represent an era of Japanese history. Repel the soul-devouring Oni alongside Slayers from around the world in the game’s rich online environment, complete with cross-platform play for PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita players.

Alongside a fresh and captivating narrative, the addition of Western lore-inspired Oni adds intriguing new adversaries to the Toukiden series. To combat these new looming threats, two series-first weapon types make their debut in Toukiden 2: the sword and shield, a combination offering a solid blend of offense and defense, and the chain whip, which allows for fast-paced maneuvers that can quickly tear apart Oni flesh. Each armament can be used for light and heavy attacks alike, and each offers special abilities that can be combined with a versatile, world-bending tool known as the Demon Hand to balance the scales of power when battling Oni.

Defeating Oni will free souls of fallen heroes known as Mitama, who are based on Japanese historical figures and can be utilized to power-up your character, weapons, armor and the Demon Hand. New to the Toukiden series, the element of Control is also empowered by Mitama, which specializes in summoning Oni to fight for the player! [koei tecmo]

Regardless of placement in the competition, all registered cosplayers who meet entry requirements will also receive this year’s Dota 2 Cosplay Crest upon appearing in cosplay during the Prejudging Phase of the competition.

As with last year, the 2017 Cosplay Competition will be administered by PGL. Please visit PGL’s sign-up page to register for more information. [Dota2]

Nier Automata Review Round up


#NierAutomata initial reviews are in, this are really good numbers. Looking forward to playing this. Trailer below;

#NierAutomata Easy Platinum?

After beating the game three times, a secret shop can be accessed that sells trophies in exchange for in-game currency. Real-world money cannot be spent in this store, only currency earned within the game--the same currency used to purchase weapons and other items. This means players are sacrificing possible progression for the sake of skipping hard-to-unlock trophies. Having said that, the prices on the trophies don't look unapproachably expensive, compared to the rate that currency is accrued in the game. [GameSpot]

The original Nier has become a cult classic

source us-playstation

Hello, I’m Yoko Taro. I’m the director for a game called Nier: Automata that launches March 7 on PS4.

The reason why I’m writing here today is because I received a question from the PlayStation.Blog team:

“The original Nier has become a cult classic, but what does it mean to you, and what were your goals for the sequel?”

But… it’s hard to answer because I didn’t have a noble vision for it. Rather, it was more like a force of habit.

When I created Nier, it was getting harder to create games within the business structure of the company that I was working for at that time, and I thought to myself “This is so tiresome, maybe I’ll just leave the company.” The concept document that I wrote at that time, thinking that it would be my last, was the prototype for Nier.

After many twists and turns, the previous Nier became a title that I like, although it did not sell too well and I did end up leaving my previous company.

However, fans of the previous title have continued to support it for a long time after that. This reached the producer’s ears, which led to the start of the Nier: Automata project… this is the sequence of events leading up to our release of this game.

The next Dota 2 Major Championship is just over the horizon, and we are pleased to announce which teams will be invited to Kiev in April for a chance to claim the Mystic Staff trophy and stand triumphant in the vanguard of Dota’s elite.

Eight teams have earned direct invites to The Kiev Major, and starting at 7AM PST, these top squads will be revealed one at a time every five minutes inside the Battle Pass Compendium. Head over to the Compendium section for the countdown timer.

Atlus Katsura Hashino Talks Persona 5

In this episode, we follow Katsura Hashino, director of various RPG games including episodes of the world-renown Persona series, he will introduce us to philosophy and his work.
Starting from Shibuya’s Center Gai, we will hop on the Den-en-Toshi line over to Sangenjaya, which was the inspiration to create the city of Yongenjaya, a key area in Hashino’s latest title: Persona 5. We will learn more on Hashino’s thinking process that led to creating Yongenjaya, and the overall tone he wanted to apply to Persona 5.

We will then head towards the Carrot Tower, one of Sangenjaya’s landmarks, to TSUTAYA, a famous chain store that sells books and games, where Hashino wanders to find inspiration. Hashino likes to read his newly acquired books at the top floor of the tower, that offers a view all over the city. The tower’s observatory is also a place where Hashino can gather his thoughts and find new ideas.

Our last stop will be at the Atlus offices, to learn more about Hashino’s vision and future projects. - Siliconera
