Hideaki Itsuno Will Begin Work on His Next Big Title After DMC5's First Update

Well, we did it guys and gals! We're here, it's 2019, and January can now begin chugging along. This also puts us two months away from Devil May Cry 5, the next entry in the hit character action series from Capcom, and the first mainline entry since 2008 in the PS3 days. Director Hideaki Itsuno is a rather busy man, but as it turns out, he's not slowing down once the game hits store shelves. Recently, website 4Gamer conducted mini interviews with multiple Japanese game design...

Following a Bumpy Start, Atlas Devs Release Apologies and Big Patches

The weather's been stormy for Studio Wildcard, the developers of the recently released pirate-themed MMO Atlas. The game was unveiled with an early access launch date at The Game Awards this past month, and many cited its similarities to Rare's Xbox One hit Sea of Thieves. The launch kicked off, but sadly not without a hitch. As quite a few have reported, Atlas's opening days were wrought with bugs aplenty, including server and connection issues all across the board. To make ...

Celeste Hits 500,000 Units Sold and Devs Celebrate With New Content

Celeste was one of 2018's biggest hits and arguably the best precision-platformer on the market. Nothing since Super Meat Boy nearly a decade ago had quite the same impact - especially across so many different platforms. It started the year off with a bang and managed to both follow up on Towerfall Ascension with another great game - but do so with something that played completely differently. Where Towerfall succeeded with action-platforming and a bit of arena brawling, Cele...

Celeste Developer's Metroidvania Game 'Skytorn' Gets Canceled

Celeste was one of the standout indie gems of this past 2018, coming out right around the start of the year and giving us a heartwarming story-based platformer with tough-but-fair difficulty. It even secured the coveted spot as a nominee for GOTY at The Game Awards a few weeks ago. What many may not know, however, is that the developers over at Matt Makes Games were in the midst of working on another title alongside Celeste. This other title, going by the name of Skytorn, was...

Dead Cells Update Gives Players the Keys to the Kingdom

Dead Cells went from an early access darling to a feature-complete slice of heaven for action-platforming fans. This blend of sword-swinging and a rogue-lite/Metdroidvania has given players a lot of options before - but they were all locked behind a progress wall.  So you could upgrade your weapons and pick between them, but they all had to be earned. Now, you can still do that, but if you want more freedom and want to configure your runs to be easier, you can. This mean...

Nintendo and Sakurai Shine the Spotlight on Persona 5, Fueling Switch Rumors

You are probably like me, and millions of others around the world, when it comes to the surprise reveal of Joker in Smash at The Game Awards 2018. By that I mean, your jaw was probably hanging open in astonishment, unless of course, you're not familiar with Joker or Persona. Nintendo's very own Reggie Fils-Aimé took to the stage and confirmed that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's DLC fighters will consist of unexpected picks like Joker. Joker is the main protagonist of Atl...

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Canceled for Linux and MacOS X

In 1997, Koji Igarashi changed side-scrolling action-platformers forever with Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. This genre-defining game brought the world of Castlevania to the exploration-based style that had allowed the Metroid franchise to stand apart from the rest. Iga, as he's known, crafted a handful of games along the same lines as SOTN for Nintendo's various portable consoles before being let go from Konami. Since then, Konami hasn't created anything akin to SOTN an...

New Ys IX Story Details Emerge, Confirming Return of Adol Christin

Earlier this month, Falcom revealed that a new entry in the popular Ys RPG series has been in the works for a little while now. They shared it only when they were ready, and it looks like a darker story than previous entries in the series. Many have been speculating about it since its reveal, and a lot of us were under the assumption that the game would be featuring a new protagonist instead of Adol Christin. These details have since been brought under a new light; Falcom pre...
