The latest installment in Arc System Works developed fighting game series, Guilty Gear, has been announced as Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-. Yeah, we’re not entirely sure how you pronounce Xrd either, zerd, maybe? It seems as if we’re making up new numbers as well as names now! (Remember Revengeance?)
Ratchet and Clank: QForce – known as Full Frontal Assault overseas – is finally making it’s way to PlayStation Vita. It released last November on PS3 and those who already own it will be able to access the Vita version free due to Sony’s cross-buy deal featured on the title.
Hello and welcome to a bumper edition of the PS3A Weekly Roundup, as the feature moves to Friday evenings. Here is what’s been happening on the site and in the world of videogames over the last week (well, actually the last 11 days).
Velocity Ultra, the Vita version of FuturLab’s critically acclaimed PS mini, was released a couple of days ago on the European PS Store. It’s even free for PlayStation Plus subscribers, but the team isn’t stopping there!
Yesterday evening, Sony announced the future of Gran Turismo at the franchise’s 15th Anniversary event at Silverstone, the home of the British Grand Prix. It turns out that its future is in Gran Turismo 6, which (as has been widely reported across the internet over the last few weeks) is coming to PS3 this winter.
Ninjas, pirates or sailors? You can support your favourite with the unlockable costumes in Resident Evil: Revelations, where Jill, Chris and Keith dress up as a pirate, sailor and ninja respectively.
Rayman Legends, previously a Wii-U exclusive, is making its way to PS3 later this year and will include an exclusive Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag skin.
The skin is based on IV’s main character – Edward Kenway – and will see Rayman don his assassin gear on his adventure to save all the Electoons.
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.
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.
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.
Jazz. Kisses. Gigolo glasses. What do they all have in common? They’re all featured in wacky, upcoming hack & slash title Killer is Dead.
Developer Grasshopper Manufacture aren’t new to excess blood, animated graphics and iconic women as made evident by their previous works including No More Heroes and Lollipop Chainsaw. All of which come from the creative mind of Goichi Suda, more commonly known as Suda 51.
With a game like Diablo 3 in-game experience points are important and are necessary to progress onward same as with most games within the RPG bracket. Blizzard seem to be aware of this and are offering a XP-boosting Infernal Helm to anybody who pre-orders Diablo on the PS3, and we assume, the PS4.
Newly formed independent game development studio Seaven Studio have revealed their debut title with a short 30 second trailer.
It’s been a pretty quiet week in the industry, with no major releases or announcements. Even so, we still got some interesting titbits of info, including a US release date for obscure JRPG Dragon’s Crown, and the news that PS Move survival horror Until Dawn has added DualShock 3 controls (probably a good thing).
Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil: Revelations, a HD remaster of a 3DS title of the same name, will grace us with a demo before the game is officially released.
Japan already has access to the demo and the worldwide release date has not been announced yet.
