Report: Dragon Quest XI To Be Announced Tomorrow

about X hours ago from

Square Enix seems set to announced the next title in the long-running Dragon Quest series. A logo for Dragon Quest XI has appeared on the company’s website.

The image was uncovered by Gematsu, that also reports that a publisher presentation will also include Dragon Quest Heroes II. The event will also likely include a number of other titles in the franchise, including Monster Battle Scanner, Dragon Quest of the Stars, and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King for 3DS.

While these are all announcements for the Japanese market, some might make their way to Western shores. We’re lagging behind on the Dragon Quest Heroes series, as the first one isn’t scheduled for arrival here until October 13.

Street Fighter V Beta Postponed Due To Extensive Server Problems

Street Fighter V Beta Postponed Due To Extensive Server Problems

Capcom is taking Street Fighter V back to the drawing board after three days of problematic server performance. The beta, which was scheduled to last for five days, has ended early after significant problems.

“After three days of testing, while we were making progress and collecting valuable data, we felt the majority of players were not having a good experience, and the best course of action would be to take the servers offline for extended maintenance,” Capcom writes. “We will be postponing our first beta phase until we believe the experience is going to be a positive one for players.”

Capcom is planning three beta periods, but will not count this false start against that number. Prior to cancelation, the beta was limited to the Americas for the first two days to hedge against server load. Those that participated in the beta test (and those in Europe and Australia that were locked out) will be receiving an as yet unnamed in-game incentive.

Here’s What The 1:4 Scale Blanka Statue Will Look Like In Full Color

The guys at Pop Culture Shock are at it again, this time giving fans their first full color look at everyone's favorite mutated Brazilian. The teaser image depicts a not-so-happy Blanka from the Street Fighter series as he no doubt prepares to electrocute the heck out of his opponent.

The teaser image above shows some serious detail; if you've ever wanted to see every vein on Blanka's forearm, this statue may be right up your alley. There's currently no release or preorder for this figure, but you might want to start saving anyways. Pop Culture Shock statues, like this $700 Sub-Zero, don't come cheap.
