Take A Look At The Japan-Only Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden From The Makers Of Guilty Gear

about X hours ago from

Arc System Works, the studio behind fighters like Guilty Gear and BlazBlue, have a new Dragon Ball Z game coming to 3DS soon in Japan.

You can check out a very brief trailer Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden below as well as a collection of screens in the gallery at the bottom of the page. The game will apparently feature 100 playable fighters, though it looks like some of those will be used as support characters. Non-fighting characters like Bulma and Chi-Chi (who, admittedly, did fight in the past) can be called in for special moves and assists.

This isn't Arc System Works' first Dragon Ball Z game. The developer released two Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors games for Game Boy Advance and DS, both of which released in North America.

Reader Discussion: Do You Use Remote Play With Your Vita?

Reader Discussion: Do You Use Remote Play With Your Vita?

One of the coolest benefits of owning a Vita and a PlayStation 4 is the option to remote play games. Do you take advantage of it?

Despite having a lot of love for Wii U and my handhelds because they allow me to play games without monopolizing the TV, remote play is something I have never never been able to take advantage of. I love the idea of playing PlayStation 4 games on a small screen in my hand, but technological limitations have always created a wall. Even if I was sitting on the floor in front of my PlayStation 4, I would get incredible stuttering and unplayable framerates.

I have only tested it a little bit, but the latest update for PlayStation 4 and Vita seem to be helping. If it truly works as advertised now, I see myself using it a lot more.

Playtonic Games Clarifies Intentions To Collaborate With Rare On Project Ukelele

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Playtonic Games' Gavin Price spoke of a hopeful collaboration with former employer Rare, and wanted to offer some more details and clarity on exactly what he meant.

If you're unfamiliar with Playtonic Games and Project Ukelele, it's a recently formed studio made mostly of former Rare developers who are working on a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie. Not much is known about the game, currently known as Project Ukelele, as Playtonic is still being very secretive, but you can find out more here and here..

Regarding the original statement that got Banjo-Kazooie and old-school Rare fans a little too excited, Price told The Guardian, “You never know, there are some good old mates of ours down the road [at Rare], they may want to do a little multi-studio collaboration,” when asked about collaboration.

Artist Imagines The Star Fox Team As Drawn By Hanna-Barbera

about X hours ago from

An artist going by simply "Jonas" online has crafted the Star Fox team as though they exist in same universe as The Jetsons.

The Jetsons are of course just one of the many shows and characters created by Hanna-Barbera, but it seems to be the universe the Star Fox team would most likely exist when looking at Hanna-Barbera's large library.

You can see more of Jonas' work on their DeviantArt page, or their website. You actually won't find a lot of video game stuff (though there is this very cool one with Samus and a Metroid), but it's still definitely worth checking out.

Reader Discussion: How Do You Feel About Delays?

about X hours ago from

With the recent Zelda Wii U and Uncharted 4 delays (and to a lesser extent, Batman: Arkham Knight), it makes us wonder – how you feel about them?

In general, I am perfectly happy to see a game delayed. It usually means some aspect of development is coming up short of expectations, so the team wants to take more time to make the game better. It still stings though, to hear you will have to wait even longer for your most anticipated game. I remember learning about Twilight Princess' delay and being embarrassingly heartbroken. I have similar feelings about Zelda Wii U, but I think the game will benefit as a result in the long run.

How do you feel about delays? No big deal? Or a knife to the gut?

Xenoblade Chronicle's Creators Were Surprised With North America's Appreciation For The Game

about X hours ago from

In the latest Iwata Asks, Xenoblade Chronicle's Tetsuya Takahashi talks about his intentions to make a JRPG masterpiece, and his love of sci-fi.

You can check out the full interview here, but some highlights include Takahashi's intention to make a JRPG masterpiece from the beginning of development. He also talks about western RPGs and how while he has appreciation for them, they often don't inject much character into the protagonists. "They are very well made, down to the last detail, but there's something stoic about them, and often the heroism aspect seems to take a bit of a back seat," Takahashi says in the interview. It's because of reasons like this that Takahashi was surprised to see the game find an audience here.

He also tells Nintendo's Satoru Iwata how he once cried as a child because his father didn't buy him the robot toy he wanted. That's how much he loves robots. You can find the full interview here.
