  • Dragon Quest Treasures releasing for Switch on December 9
    por Alex Donaldson el junio 28, 2022 a las 5:46 pm

    After a long wait, fans finally now know when they can play upcoming Dragon Quest series spin-off Dragon Quest Treasures – and the wait isn’t far off at all. Fans will be playing the spin-off this December. Dragon Quest Treasures was first announced a little over a year ago as part of last year’s Dragon Quest 35th anniversary celebrations – but like all of those announcements, it was predominantly aimed at Japan, and only really lightly acknowledged by Square Enix’s Western branches. Now, the game is getting full promotion in the West ahead of a December 9th release, just a handful of months away. The new spin-off features Erik and Mia, siblings who’ll be familiar to players of Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age. The pair live on a cool-looking Viking Longship, and end up getting taken to a mysterious land – which is where they embark on a new adventure that’s a gigantic treasure hunt, as you’d expect from the name of the game.

  • Persona 5 Royal coming to Switch this October – with Persona 3 and 4 to follow
    por Alex Donaldson el junio 28, 2022 a las 1:09 pm

    Joker’s no longer just about spin-offs and Smash on the Switch, as Nintendo fans will soon finally get their wish – Persona 5 Royal is coming to Switch this October. As on Xbox, Switch versions of Persona 3 Portable (PSP) and Persona 4 Golden (Vita/PC) will later follow down the line, too. This move completes what appears to be a plan by Atlus to open up the Persona series to a far wider audience. Previously a PlayStation-only affair for many years, the company gingerly dipped a toe with a PC version of Persona 4 Golden, and now has versions of the three modern formula Persona games in the pipes for PC, Xbox, and Switch. Persona 5 is the first release, and will be landing on October 21st, the same day it hits Xbox. On Switch these will of course be full-price releases, but the Xbox and PC versions are going into Game Pass, if that makes a difference to you. Read more

  • DNF Duel Review: An absurd fighter that pulls no punches
    por Connor Makar el junio 28, 2022 a las 7:00 am

    It’s a chaotic moment in the world of fighting games right now. These games, typically at their best when played next to some other tryhard at a weekly tournament at some bar with cheap pints, or at a packed, sweltering hotel conference room filled with PS4s and a few CRTVs buzzing away desperate for death, were ripped away from those environments. The Fighting games genre was hit hard by the pandemic, and only now as DNF Duel releases is the scene returning to something approaching business as usual.An adaptation of the hugely popular MMO action RPG Dungeon Fighter Online, Arc System Works is back at it again bringing a popular IP to a shiny 2D stage. The difference this time around is that it’s working in collaboration with Eighting – the developer behind Marvel vs Capcom 3 – which will perk the ears of those who like intense, madcap fighters.DNF Duel is launching in an ideal release window, between the big hitters of 2021 and the oncoming giants expected next year like Street Fighter 6 and Project L. It’s coming at a time when the core players are dying to grab some games and flex their skills with friends and the wider world. Read more
