It’s been a long time coming, but there’s some much needed variety in today’s PS3 Attitude PlayTime. This week’s videogame playlist included an eclectic mix of Final Fantasy XIII, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Persona 4 (on PS2!), Soul Sacrifice, Spec Ops: The Line and Thomas Was Alone. OK, it’s perhaps not a massive departure, but it’s definitely progress!
A few weeks ago the newly formed Seaven Studio teased audiences with their debut gaming project, and today the development studio have revealed it to be Ethan: Meteor Hunter.
Ethan has been hit by a meteor and as a result, has been given the power of telekinesis and the ability to freeze time. Using his new-found abilities, Ethan embarks on a journey through 50 levels across three different worlds collecting the fragments of the meteor that hit him.
Barbara Gordon, more commonly known as Batgirl, is joining the fray in Injustice: Gods Among Us and this time it’s personal.
In DC Comics graphic novel The Killing Joke, The Joker brutally shot Barbara and is the reason behind her paralysis. Due to the alternate Universes in Injustice, we assume that Batgirl has either regained the ability to walk through technology or was never attacked. Regardless, she’s seemingly very annoyed with The Joker and hopefully we’ll find out more during her arcade story.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX – what a mouthful, eh? – is being released in North America on 10th Sep whilst Europe gets to play it 3 days later.
A pre-order incentive has been announced for both regions in the form of a limited edition artbook, showcasing concept art, character designs and other work that went in to bringing Square Enix and Disney’s fantasy RPG epic to consoles.
Cel-shaded RPG Borderlands 2 is receiving its sixth playable class in the form of Krieg the Psycho. In case his title didn’t make it clear, he’s a psycho. A psycho with really, really bad speech.
He, like Gaige the Necromancer, will not be part of the Season Pass.
If you bet that this week Majiesto has been playing Soul Sacrifice, MitchJay92 has been playing every Persona game ever made, and I’ve been playing BioShock Infinite and Final Fantasy XIII, then I have very good news: you win! Yes, like the ever-predictable people that we are, we’ve been playing those same games yet again. But there’s always next week, right?
Persona 4 Arena sees characters from Persona 4 and 3 return in a crossover fighting title to solve the case of the returning Midnight Channel, the place where the events of Persona 4 took place. With the return of the Investigation Team from P4, several characters from P3 and Arc System Works’ ability to make an in-depth and immersive fighter, can P4 Arena compete with the best of its genre?
This week, PS3 Attitude heard from upcoming games Diablo III, Killer Is Dead, Persona 4: Arena, and a little-known title called something like Grand Theft Auto V. We also saw the formation of a new studio in France, and posted our definitive review of the superb indie platformer Thomas Was Alone.
Zen United has released a story teaser trailer for Persona 4 Arena which is finally releasing in Europe on 10th May, roughly a year after it was available in Japan and North America. Featuring a story canon to both Persona 3 and 4, fans can catch up with their favourite characters as they delve in to a new adventure.
The inventive puzzle-platformer Thomas Was Alone has been described by its creator, Mike Bithell, as ‘a game about rectangles and friendship’. However, as you may have guessed from the somewhat melancholy title, there’s a lot more going on here than that.
Terraria, the previously PC exclusive hit which arrived on the North American PlayStation Store a couple of months ago, has finally received a European release date so that we can enjoy it alongside our NA relatives on PSN. Sadly, the Vita won’t be seeing any of this action until later this Summer.
