The game brings in a roster of spirit users, muscle-bound vampires, and horse-riding pilgrims who fire mind bullets -a majority of them named after rock musicians and their music, mind you- as they battle each other mano-a-mano.</p> <p dir="ltr">Following the basic template of Street Fighter IV, the game adds in new mechanics such as side-stepping on the battlefield to avoid projectiles and control spacing, canceling from regular and special moves mid-combo at the cost of their heart heat gauge (the game’s equivalent of the super meter), and stage hazards that are triggered after knocking down an opponent onto a highlighted spot.</p> <p dir="ltr">Already out in Japan and getting extra promotion in TGS, the game has sold half a million copies on its debut week according to sales chart site <a href="http://www.m-create.com/ranking/" target="_blank">Media Creates</a>. To put things into perspective, the popular Street Fighter IV sold 123,857 units on its first week.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>Localization chances?</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">JoJo is indeed a go-go. Namco Bandai announced that the quirky fighting game will be out in North America in 2014. In the meantime, fighting game fans can catch up with the long-running series through some heavy manga reading, or tune in to the recent 2012 anime adaptation of the first two chapters.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle (PS3)" alt="JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle (PS3)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/01jojoasb_edit.jpg?1382595848" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Drag-On Dragoon 3 (PS3) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr"><strong>What Is It?</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">Old-school PS2 gamers may remember the Drag-On Dragoon series; it was localized as Drakengard since 2004. The first two games were third-person action hack-and-slash fests in the veins of the Dynasty Warriors series, with its sole hook being that players can command and ride a badass dragon either on the field or in the air at any given situation.</p> <p dir="ltr">The upcoming third game is not only sticking true to its saurian-piloting and beat-em-up roots, but also introduces two different female protagonists, Zero and One, with a dark backstory and a promiscuous streak. Heck, the former has four manservants of different age groups who protects her as well as satiates her ever-growing libido. Keeping up with the game’s grueling nature, Zero and One can amplify their combat prowess if they are covered by oodle amounts of blood on the battlefield.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>Localization Chances?</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">Yes, given that the first two games were localized before. Publisher Square Enix is mum about its English existence at the moment. Copies outside of the US and Europe would be distributed in limited amounts given its niche status.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Drag-On Dragoon 3 (PS3)" alt="Drag-On Dragoon 3 (PS3)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/02dragondragoon3.jpg?1382595848" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Game Center CX: Arino in District 3 (3DS) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr"><strong>What Is It?</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">This collection of 15 NES-styled original games is styled after retro titles like Mega Man and Super Mario Bros. Examples include Rumi and the Magic Broom, a platformer inspired by the Super Mario Bros. series, and Wing Hero, a horizontal 2D shoot-em-up where players can blow on a microphone to elevate away when things get too hot. Saurus Boy is what happens when someone combines Land Before Time with Mega Man; the main character fights in a prehistoric world using different dinosaur outfits with varying power-ups</p> <p dir="ltr">This otherworldly collection is a tie-in to the Japanese TV show Game Center CX, which is hosted by comedian Shinya Arino. In each episode he has to finish a retro title in 24 hours as well as explore gaming culture in the whole of Japan. Because only in that country, TV execs can profit from a show where a middle-age comedian plays old video games for entertainment.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>Localization Chances?</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">Most likely no. The first Games Center CX title on the Nintendo DS was localized previously under the name Retro Games Challenge in North America to mediocre fanfare and sales number. The show is gaining popularity on international markets thanks to subtitled DVD releases of past episodes, so there’s that.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Game Center CX: Arino in District 3 (3DS)" alt="Game Center CX: Arino in District 3 (3DS)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/03gamescentercx3_0.jpg?1382595848" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Danganronpa 1.2 Reload (PS Vita) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr"><strong>What Is It?</strong></p> <p>A murder mystery adventure game that combines a unique 2.5D motion graphic art style with a twisted scenario. Fifteen students are trapped in Hope’s Peak Academy, and according to a talking robot bear called Monokuma, they can only get out by killing one of their own and covering up their tracks. Players unravel the story through the eyes of the student Makoto as they have to unravel murders through investigations and evidence-hunting, with each case’s culprit decided through a class trial.</p> <p dir="ltr">If players guess the culprit's identity correctly during a class trial, he or she will undergo capital punishment for disrupting the sanctity of the academy. Fail, and the killer walks scot-free while everyone else gets the axe.</p> <p dir="ltr">Dating simulation aspects do creep up, as Makoto can hang out with the remaining students, bond with them via conversations and gift-giving. Think the Ace Attorney adventure game series combined with anime high school tropes and the “whodunit” aspects of Saw, and that’s Danganronpa in a nutshell.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>Localization Chances?</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">The verdict for this crime caper being in English is a resounding “no”. Despite the unconventional-yet-brilliant combination, there has not been a publisher from North America or Europe daring enough to bring this niche title overseas. However, the game’s publisher Nippon Ichi said during a TGS press event that the <a href="http://www.siliconera.com/2013/09/19/nisa-will-announce-new-titles-really-soon/" target="_blank">American branch will announce something really soon</a>, so fingers crossed.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Danganronpa 1.2 Reload (PS Vita)" alt="Danganronpa 1.2 Reload (PS Vita)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/04danganronpa_0.jpg?1382595848" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Otoranger (iOS) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>What Is It?</strong></p> <p>Rhythm games have been flooding mobile devices as of late with the likes of the Tap Tap Revenge series and, er, Snoop Dogg’s Way of The Dogg. Capcom decides to put in their own spin on the genre by adding in Power Rangers-like superheroes and RPG elements for team and stats-building.</p> <p dir="ltr">Tailored after Puzzle &amp; Dragon's hybrid mechanics, players have to combat wave upon wave of super villain henchmen and sentai-styled monsters in a stage by hitting the cues on-screen perfectly to the beat of the background music. The more precise a player’s input is, the better the outcome and damage. Greater inputs will allow them to go into Fever mode, where the heroes summon a giant robot akin to the Megazord to deal a heckaton of damage on anything waylaying their path. If that isn't enough to satiate a music lover's tastebuds, the game's simple-yet-striking art style is easy on the eyes.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>Localization Chances?</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">Unlike most titles on this list, mobile games have a good chance of making it out in English if oddities like Party Wave and Puzzle &amp; Dragon are concerned. A concept like Otoranger can work outside of Japan thanks to the long-lasting popularity of the Power Rangers series (since 1993 up until now) and portable rhythm titles.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="563" height="425" title="Otoranger (iOS)" alt="Otoranger (iOS)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/05otoranger_edit.jpg?1382595848" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-5"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Puella Magi Madoka Magica: The Battle Pentagram (PS Vita) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>What Is It?</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">The anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica was renowned for its trippy aesthetics and fresh take on the magical schoolgirl warrior premise. Naturally, that makes for perfect video game fodder as Namco Bandai is developing a third-person action game where players control a group of school girls brandishing bow &amp; arrows and machine guns as they fend off evil butterflies and loli-witches in the dead of night.</p> <p>Borrowing cues from roguelike RPGs, players have to balance whatever finite resources they have as they play through multiple dungeons tailored out of a Lewis Carroll-inspired LSD trip. To mix things up, gamers will be coupled with an A.I partner during missions. Their performance and effectiveness are determined on whether players make an effort in talking to them and building a relationship during the day portions of the game. So far, there hasn’t been any word on the game’s touch screen features. One hopes that Namco Bandai takes the high road and make sure it doesn’t involve dress up</p> <p><strong>Localization Chances?</strong></p> <p>The odds aren’t in Namco Bandai’s favor. While the premise and concept seem tame enough, the anime series it’s based upon is not even close to the mainstream levels of shows like One Piece and Naruto. Pushing out an English release for a moderate number will be an uphill battle in licensing and cost justification.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Puella Magi Madoka Magica: The Battle Pentagram (PS Vita)" alt="Puella Magi Madoka Magica: The Battle Pentagram (PS Vita)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/06puella_edit.jpg?1382595848" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-carousel-item"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-title"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Tokyo Game Show 2013 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-standfirst"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item standfirst:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The weird, whacky and quintessentially quirky games from this year&#039;s show in Japan </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-carousel-image-small"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item small image:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_carousel_image_small" width="450" height="340" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/04danganronpa.jpg?1382595818" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/tokyo-game-show/quintessentially-quirky-oddities-tokyo-games-show-2013/feature#comments Console games iOS games Tokyo Game Show Sun, 22 Sep 2013 14:58:31 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1426949 at http://www.stuff.tv Games, girls and sights from Tokyo Game Show 2013 http://www.stuff.tv/sg/tokyo-game-show/games-girls-and-sights-tokyo-game-show-2013/feature <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Life-sized mechas and friendly girls in costumes await a snaking line of passionate gamers at the annual game show in Japan </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Games, girls and sights at Tokyo Game Show 2013" alt="Games, girls and sights at Tokyo Game Show 2013" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/TGS%20Main.jpg?1379744890" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>The excitement can hardly be contained once the doors to the Tokyo Game Show, held at the Makuhari Messe convention centre in Japan, Tokyo, are opened.</p> <p>Every year, gamers are treated to new footage and demonstrations of the latest games from all categories, including role-playing, action and adventure titles.

During the demo, the player&rsquo;s actions are still detectable even when he is seated. Interactions are more in-depth - clench your fist to touch an object, use two fingers to move the character and place the fingers on the head&rsquo;s temples to trigger a vision mode that reveals clues for objects.</p> <p dir="ltr">Voice command is integrated into the game, allowing you to dictate your conversation choices. Surprisingly, the Kinect sensor was able to understand the player&rsquo;s command which came with a hint of Japanese accent.</p> <p dir="ltr">The game&rsquo;s action sequence puts you in the thick of the action. During a fistfight, the game prompts the player to move their left or right (and at times, both) hand accordingly. This evolves further, such as an instruction to put your right hand up and push it forward as though you are fending off the enemy. By the end of the demo, we also saw the player adopting a batting pose and swinging forward to deflect an object, and placing his hand in front of his mouth and shouting to daze his foe with a speakerphone.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="D4 action" alt="D4 action" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/D4%20Action.jpg?1399865620" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Drama and comedy, delivered in episodes </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr">From our early impressions of its story, D4 took a few cues from Christopher Nolan&rsquo;s Memento, which sets the character on a journey to find his wife&rsquo;s killer.

Though the game&rsquo;s cel-shaded animation, colourful characters and snappy dialogue adds a comedic tone to the storyline, Swery said that the end of each episode has a climax scene which might bring a tear to your eyes as the character unravels the mystery behind his dead wife&rsquo;s &ldquo;D&rdquo; message.</p> <p dir="ltr">Swery was unable to confirm how many episodes are in the works, or when the game will be available for the Xbox One.</p> <p dir="ltr">But one thing&rsquo;s for sure, it&rsquo;s time to break the piggy bank, and lift some weights to get your arms in shape before you play D4.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="D4 story" alt="D4 story" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/D4%20Story.jpg?1399865620" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/xbox-one/tokyo-game-show/d4-game-makes-you-want-xbox-one/news#comments Games consoles Tokyo Game Show Xbox One Fri, 20 Sep 2013 12:33:04 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1426904 at http://www.stuff.tv Lost in the rain might be a sleeper hit with its unique gameplay http://www.stuff.tv/sg/playstation-3/tokyo-game-show/lost-rain-might-be-sleeper-hit-its-unique-gameplay/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Subtle gameplay elements such as footprints and knocking objects off to reveal an invisible boy&#039;s location put the spotlight on this adventure game </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Lost in the rain might be a sleeper hit with its unique gameplay" alt="Lost in the rain might be a sleeper hit with its unique gameplay" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Lost%20in%20the%20rain.jpg?1379828062" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>It starts with an innocent look out the window for an unnamed boy, who spots the silhouette of a mysterious girl in the rain.

During a closed-door session at the Tokyo Game Show, the developers demonstrated simple gameplay controls - walk, jump and interact - but it is far from the usual platformer game. For one, the character is defenseless and has no means of attack.</p> <p>The rain is your ally, and your worst enemy. With it, you can spot the boy, who is barely visible even as the rain splashes on him and creates a silhouette. Move indoors, and you’ll have to rely on environmental objects such as water puddles, wet footprints or bump into objects to pinpoint his location.</p> <p>These actions reveal the boy’s position to you, and unfortunately, to the unknown creatures. And once that happens, run. Run for your dear life, and hide.</p> <p dir="ltr">There are two methods to hide your presence - going under a shelter to mask yourself from the monsters, or running underneath a monster that’s taller to seek safety. Monsters are also attracted to sound. Play it right, and you can distract them, clearing a path in the process.
