Persona 5 developer Atlus has announced it will be revealing something on April 25. A website confirming the date of the reveal has appeared online, but there's no indication as to what the studio will be talking about. Intriguingly, the website has "P5S" in its URL.
Atlus has already announced a new version of the RPG for PS4 called Persona 5 The Royal, but this has its own website with "P5R" in the URL. This suggests that P5S is something separate from the PS4's Persona 5 The Royale. Much of the speculation for what it could be has been around a Nintendo Switch version of Persona 5, and the "S" in the URL no doubt fuels that fire.
Thus far, Persona 5 has only been released on PlayStation hardware. Alongside the PS4 version, however, there's a PS3 version, which could be suitable for porting to the Switch. Additionally, Atlus and Nintendo are already working together to bring Joker, the protagonist of Persona 5, to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as DLC.
Following the launch of Assassin's Creed III Remastered last month, it appears publisher Ubisoft has delisted the original game from PC retailers such as Steam and Uplay. The game's Steam page is still visible, but states, "At the request of the publisher, Assassin's Creed III is no longer available for sale on Steam."
Assassin's Creed III Remastered is of course available for purchase for $40 / £34 / AU $60, but unlike the original version this does not include the game's multiplayer portion. GameSpot has reached out to Ubisoft to confirm why the original version was removed.
It should be noted the delisting does not prevent existing owners of Assassin's Creed III from downloading or playing the game--it merely prevents anyone else from purchasing it. Assassin's Creed III Remastered, meanwhile, is included in the season pass for Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
One of the Devil May Cry series' most intense gameplay modes has finally been released for Devil May Cry 5. Out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One as a free update, Bloody Palace is a survival mode that pits you against waves of enemies within a 101-floor dungeon. As a returning gameplay mode, first seen in Devil May Cry 2, the Bloody Palace is a lengthy challenge that aims to put your skills with the game's trio of playable characters to the test.
To unlock the Bloody Palace, you'll first need to complete the game on Human or Devil Hunter mode. After the end credits, entry into the new mode can be found in the main menu. In similar fashion to previous games, you'll fight through a long set of increasingly tough encounters against common foes and bosses. As you reach the higher floors, the difficulty will increase, resulting in enemies dealing higher damage and the elite foes showing up more often. If you come to a defeat, you will have to start from the beginning and work your way back up. In addition to facing off against groups of enemies that are in greater numbers than in the main game, some characters will also fight certain bosses that they never encountered against in the main story--such as Nero doing battle with Cavaliere Angelo.
An American man has set a new record for the biggest video game collection. Antonio Monteiro has more than 20,000 games games in his collection, which as you might have guessed is absolutely massive.
His library of games includes the complete North American collections for PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PSP, Original Xbox, Xbox 360, Wii U, GameCub, Wii, Dream Cast, Sega Genesis, and others. He also has more than 1,000 Nintendo DS games.
Check out the video above to see Monterio's collection from his home in Richmond, Texas. According to the Guiness Book of World Records, Monteiro's collection is so massive that it took him eight days to count all the games to submit for the world record.
It looks like there might be some news about No More Heroes at E3 this year. Developer Goichi Suda, known as Suda51, said in a new interview that some news about the Travis Touchdown series could be on tap for the big-time gaming show in June.
The ending to the recent No More Heroes spinoff Travis Strikes Again very strongly suggested that a new No More Heroes game was in development. Asked by Siliconera about the ending, Suda replied with a laugh, "I wonder what that was myself."
"It might be Travis messing around. [Laughs] I hope around E3 time I'll have something cool to announce."
The first trailer for the new zombie comedy The Dead Don't Die has arrived, and it's pretty great. Of course the zombie movie genre is well-trodden territory, but the cast of this new film from filmmaker Jim Jarmusch is what may set it apart.
The film stars a long list of huge names, including Bill Murry, Adam Driver, Chloe Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Tilda Swinton, Danny Glover, Rosie Perez, and Caleb Landry Jones, along with singers Iggy Pop, RZA, Selena Gomez, and Tom Waits.
From the looks of the new trailer, it seems The Dead Don't Die will poke fun at zombie movies and break the fourth wall, and it'll be interesting to see what such a strong ensemble cast can deliver. The movie's description says it features the "greatest zombie cast ever disassembled."
Barring any last-minute changes, Halo: The Master Chief Collection may finally begin its release for PC in April. Community director Brian Jarrard said on Twitter that the current plan, which could change, is for the first beta tests--or "flights" in the Halo parlance--should begin for Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Halo: Reach sometime in April.
Jarrard made this announcement on April Fool's Day, but it is no joke, he confirmed in a tweet.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC in stages, beginning with Halo: Reach (which is also releasing for Xbox One) and continuing chronologically from there--Halo: CE, Halo 2, Halo 3, and then Halo 4. The titles will be released first as "flights," with the aim of testing each title with a limited group of people first before rolling out publicly for everyone. You can sign up for the free Halo Insider program here for a chance to try out the games early.
It's now April, which means the beginning of the end for Game of Thrones is near. As part of its onslaught of promotional activity for the final season, HBO has released a pair of promotional videos for Game of Thrones Season 8.
The first is titled "Together," and it features brief motivational speeches from both Tyrion and Jon, as we see preparations for a battle at Winterfell. The second is called "Survival," and it also features dragons flying over Winterfell and really hammers home that this is the end.
The promos contain some footage we've seen before, but also some new shots that tease the epic conclusion to the fantasy drama. Watch them both below.
