Dragon’s Crown, the latest title from Japanese developer Vanillaware, finally has a release date. It releases in Japan on 25th July and in North America on 6th August but sadly, there is currently no confirmed date for when the well-endowed title will hit European shores.
It is Sony exclusive and will be available on both PS3 and Vita.
Until Dawn, an upcoming game from developer Supermassive Games, was announced as a PlayStation Move exclusive title in, what we assume, was an attempt to sell more Move controllers by introducing an immersive horror experience exclusive to the motion controller.

(Eh, eeeeh?)
The EU release date of Persona 4 Arena is quickly approaching and, to make up for the delay, Zen United has revealed that you are now able to pre-order the Limited Edition available only at the Zen United EU store.

Lobo, the villainous mercenary and bounty hunter for hire, may be the first DLC character joining the already established Injustice: Gods Among Us cast later this year.

With Battlefield 4 being the worst kept secret since the reveal of the PlayStation Vita, it’s no surprise that more information has come to light.
This seems to be intentional but this may be another case of a retailer jumping the gun on announcements which seems to happen more often than not.
Namco Bandai has revealed a collector’s edition for Tales of Xillia which will release alongside the game later this year. It will release in North America on August 6th whilst Europe gets it 3 days later on the 9th and, lucky for Japan, they’ve had it since 2011 and already have a sequel.
OriginsThe next highly anticipated title in Rocksteady’s Batman series has been revealed to be Arkham Origins, a prequel to Asylum focusing on a younger Batman and his first encounters with famous allies and villains.

Winter is coming with the third installment of the Lost Planet series finally arriving later this year with the date – hopefully – set in stone. Although the game features a lot of snow it’ll be arriving during the Summer, looking reminiscent of Dead Space 3 with aliens and harsh, chilly landscapes.
It doesn’t feel long ago at all that Assassin’s Creed III came out – maybe because it only released October 2012 – and now Ubisoft are prepping for the latest addition to the series dubbed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
Is Assassin’s Creed fatigue setting in or can this new, pirate themed installment refresh the series?
Since DmC Devil May Cry released in January featuring half-Demon half-Angel brothers Dante and Vergil fans have been wondering when they’ll be able to play Vergil’s Downfall, a DLC announced before the games release.

Aquaman, sadly one of the more underrated characters in the DC universe, will be joining the fight in Injustice: Gods Among Us and will come with his very own, unique stage.
