  • The Rumors Are True: Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Announced By Square kingdom heartsLast week the title of an unannounced stopgap game for the Kingdom Hearts series was leaked: “Kingdom Hearts 2.9.” It appears the final version of that title was moved one-tenth of a number, but otherwise, everything looks to be as reporters guessed.
    Just like everyone figured, the disc will include a PS4 remake of Dream Drop Distance, the Kingdom Hearts 3DS game. It’ll also contain Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, and something else no one predicted: a brand new chapter connecting to Birth By Sleep, the PSP KH game that was remade back in Kingdom Hearts 2.5. Titled Kingdom Hearts 0.2: ...
  • The Western Version Of Dragon Quest Heroes Comes With All DLC Free dragon quest heroesIt took quite a while for Sqaure-Enix to make up its mind on whether to localize Dragon Quest Heroes in the West or not — so long that by this point, all the DLC for the Japanese version of the game has been released. The good news for us is that, thanks to circumstances, we won’t have to pay.
    When Dragon Quest Heroes releases in America this fall, all released content will be included on the disc — including the material that was DLC-exclusive in Japan. You’ll get it all, for the original price!
    It won’t all be available at once, however. ...
  • We May See New Footage Of The Last Guardian At TGS the last guardianThe Last Guardian, long thought to be an abandoned game despite Sony’s insistence that it was active, made a surprise appearance during the last E3. Since then people have been hungry for new footage, and Fumito Ueda, the game’s long-standing director, may be about to provide just that.
    Ueda hinted as much when he tweeted a new photo from the game today: it’s the foot of Trico, the massive birdlike griffin-creature that the game centers around, behind a cage. “We are thinking about how to take Trico to the Makuhari (in a new and different way),” Ueda said. Makuhari is the ...

  • Witcher 3’s Game Director Answers Expansion Questions witcher 3Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, director of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and its upcoming expansions, sat down with Gamespot to answer a few questions about Hearts of Stone, the first expansion due to release next month. Here are the most relevant bits of information from that interview, which can be read in full here.
    It isn’t necessary to play through the entire game, but you’ll want to have played through at least some of it first: “The story told in Hearts of Stone is pretty much standalone from the events that took place in Wild Hunt, so even players who have not finished ...
  • Whatever Fallout 4’s DLC Is, It’ll Cost You $30 dlcDevelopment studio Bethesda Games is hard at work on Fallout 4. Naturally, they haven’t concocted any of the DLC the game is expected to have yet. They’ll think of that stuff when they have time to think again.
    Whatever it decides to put out, Bethesda DOES know THIS: the Season Pass to purchase all this DLC at once will be $30, no more. The first round of this DLC is expected sometime in 2016, and there will also be minor updates before then that will be free of charge.
    The $30 price will cover “all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever ...

  • Fallout 4 Has The Biggest Script Of Any Bethesda Game Ever Made fallout 4Bethesda announced on their Twitter account today that they’d recently completed recording the voice tracks for Fallout 4. Not only is the amount of dialogue in the game immense, but according to them, it’s of a larger size than both Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. Combined.
    Just how much is that, exactly? 111,000 lines of dialogue, all of it audio. It was so much that the recording process took several years. Of course, Fallout 4 has several features that would require a larger amount of dialogue to be realized. The character you control will speak, and since you can ...
  • Bethesda Teases Fallout Edition Of Monopoly Today the official Fallout Twitter account, run by developer Bethesda, posted this picture:

    “When #Fallout4 monopolizes family time, you can always bust this out (coming soon!)” they said.
    The big surprise here is not that there’s going to be a Fallout-themed Monopoly board, but that there wasn’t one already. You would know this by one visit to the hobby store, but every single intellectual property with even a slight cult following has its own themed special edition of Monopoly based around it. There’s apparently a large section of collectors who look for these, and Hasbro is only too happy to feed their ...

  • Fallout 4 Action Figure On The Way fallout 4There’s more with the Fallout 4 brand coming than just a game. Developer Bethesda shared these photos today of a prototype for a Fallout 4 collectible statue depicting the Power Suit.

    It won’t be sold like this. Since it’s just a prototype, details like color haven’t been added yet. We don’t know the exact pricing or availability for the Power Suit figure either, nor a release date. The figure is still early in development. When we know more about the Fallout 4 Power Suit figure, we’ll report on it.
    The game itself is coming out November 10 for Playstation 4, XBox ...
