Atlus Teasing Something New For Persona 5

Atlus is teasing something Persona 5-related via a Japanese website promising "1 More" on Thursday April 25.

Gemtasu also found a "calling card" mentioning a "new Phantom Thieves that will turn the world's cognition on its head." Atlus' teaser website also mentions Persona Super Live 2019 – an event in Tokyo happening April 24-25.

The use of the "P5S" URL follows Atlus' previous use of "P5R" to tease Persona 5: The Royal (click for a trailer) which will be further unveiled on April 24 at the event.

Everybody's Golf VR Announced For May 21

Everybody's Golf VR Announced For May 21

The Everybody's Golf/Hot Shots Golf series is synonymous with the three-click swing, but developer Clap Handz is taking things in a new direction with Everybody's Golf VR – out on May 21.

The PlayStation VR title can be played with a single Move controller or a DualShock 4, but the downside is that the game currently only lists three courses plus a new practice mode (from the tee or on the green). That said, Everybody's Golf VR is selling for $29.99.

Being an Everybody's Golf game, naturally, your caddie is part of the experience, and in this VR title they'll give you the normal advice as well as appear between holes in events. Judging by one of the screens in the gallery below, it looks like things might even get dangerous.

Samurai Shodown Unveils Darli, The Series' First New Character In A Long Time

Samurai Shodown Unveils Darli, The Series' First New Character In A Long Time

During the PAX East panel for SNK over the weekend, the fighting game developer revealed their first major new character for Samurai Shodown. Named Darli Dagger, she makes for not only the first new character for the game, but the first new character in years for the series.

Dagger makes up the first of a trio of new characters for Samurai Shodown, which has already made waves by being greenlit for Evo later this year despite not being released yet. Despite her last name, she wields a giant sawblade, and appears to be influenced by Polynesian pirates around the 18th century. 

Unfortunately, there's no gameplay footage of Dagger yet, but we should see some before too long. You can, however, see footage of us playing a recent build on a New Gameplay Today from last month. Samurai Shodown releases on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this summer, with a Switch version coming later this year.

Suda51 Teases No More Heroes News At E3

Suda51 Teases No More Heroes News At E3

Just a few months ago, director Suda51 released Travis Strikes Again, a game set in the No More Heroes universe. While it wasn't the No More Heroes games a lot of series fans wanted, it did hint quite a bit at things to come. With that level of teasing, it stands to reason a new No More Heroes game might be on the way, but we could see it as soon as E3.

When speaking to Siliconera, Suda51 was coy about his next major project. The outlet asked him directly about the ending to Travis Strikes Again, which hints at more No More Heroes in the future.

"I wonder what that was myself. It might be Travis messing around," Suda laughed. "I hope around E3 time I’ll have something cool to announce."

Rumor: Borderlands 3 Releasing In September

Rumor: Borderlands 3 Releasing In September

A tweet today that seemingly released far earlier than it should have indicates that Borderlands 3, the upcoming anticipated third game in the Gearbox shooter franchise, will be releasing in less than six months. In addition, the leaked trailer seems to confirm that Borderlands 3 on PC will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store.

The official Borderlands account made the tweet today, which you can find via web archive here, stating that "Mayhem is Coming September 13." It's then followed by a call to pre-order for the gold weapons pack and a small clip from last week's reveal trailer. In the corner of the trailer clip, it showed the logos for Gearbox Software, Take-Two Interactive, and Epic Games Store.

The September release date makes sense, especially with Take-Two seemingly pulling a Borderlands 3 reveal from E3 last year. That means that Gearbox and Take-Two get to have a more compact and filled marketing cycle for the game to prepare news every few weeks until the game's launch.

Devil May Cry 5's Bloody Palace Is Now Available

Devil May Cry 5's Bloody Palace Is Now Available

It's been less than a month since Devil May Cry 5 and you might have done everything with the game you can reasonably do right now. Capcom promised the Bloody Palace update, which lets players traverse the many enemy-filled floors of a combat gauntlet, would come to the game in April. Usually that means late April, but Capcom has gone ahead and released it on the very first day of the month.

You can go ahead and update right now to get access to the gauntlet.

Bloody Palace pits you against 101 floors of enemies and bosses as whichever character you choose. Your opponents are preset, so you'll be fighting bosses in Bloody Palace that you never fought using that character in the campaign. Want to see how Dante would fare against Goliath? Now's your chance, but you have to do it all in one go.

Gaming News Subreddit Closes Today To Protest Toxicity And Bigotry In Community

Gaming News Subreddit Closes Today To Protest Toxicity And Bigotry In Community

Going onto Reddit for video game discussion can vary greatly depending on the specific subreddit, but r/games has always prided itself on its reputation for more serious conversation. To hear its users describe the subreddit, it is for actual dialogue on news and the actual games itself, as opposed to memes and images related to video games. Today, however, the moderators of r/games have decided to use the attention from an expectant audience anticipating an April Fool's Joke to send a message about and to the gaming community.

"This April Fool’s, we decided to take things a little more seriously and shed some light on a growing, pervasive issue that has affected the community of r/Games and gaming communities as a whole," the post begins after disclaiming that this isn't an April Fool's joke. "In recent times, it’s come to our attention that what has been intended to be a forum for the potential spread of knowledge and involvement in video games has instead become a battleground of conflicting ideas. Ordinarily, this isn’t an issue; discussion by its very nature is certain to bring argument, but when that argument descends into vitriolic attacks between individuals on a regular basis with no chance at deescalation, that’s when, put simply, something’s got to give."
