Space Channel 5 VR Coming To PSVR

At Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show event last night, Sega announced that the previously announced Space Channel 5 VR that was hurtling toward a PC headset near you is also coming to PlayStation VR. You can check out a trailer for the game below.

The VR version has been available in Japanese arcades for over a year now, with a port announced for Oculus and Vive in Japan a few months back. Now the VR experience of taking space journalist Ulala through multiple levels where she dances to a rhythm to defeat invading aliens is coming to PlayStation VR, as well.

Space Channel 5 was one of the Dreamcast's most well-known original games and eventually got ported to the PlayStation 2 along with its sequel.

Square Enix Reveals New RPG Project Prelude From Former Tales Producer

Square Enix Reveals New RPG Project Prelude From Former Tales Producer

Square Enix has announced a new console RPG titled Project Prelude ahead of the Tokyo Games Show. While details are sparse, Square did release a teaser trailer giving us a hint of the tone and art style for the new game.

The game is being developed by Project Istolla, a new studio established under Square Enix lead by former Tales producer Hideo Baba. Baba lead the Tales studio at Bandai Namco until 2015's Tales of Zestiria, at which point he left for a new role at Square Enix. There is definitely some degree of 3D Tales in the air of Project Prelude, but the teaser trailer does not indicate how the new title will actually play.

Project Prelude is confirmed for at least PlayStation 4, but it is unknown if it will also come to other platforms.

SNK Announces New Samurai Shodown Game

SNK has announced and released a teaser for a new game in their Samurai Shodown series. The short teaser begins with some story setup and then shows gameplay, complete with cinematic clashes, toward the second half. You can check out the teaser below.

Much like King of Fighters XIV and the recently-released SNK Heroines, SNK has veered away from the sprite-based fighter in favor of 3D models once again. While this isn't the first time Samurai Shodown has gone 3D, with games like Samurai Shodown 64, this time it appears to be locked to a 2D plane with 3D graphics.

The trailer shows series veterans Haohmaru, Nakoruru, Galford, and more. Based on KOFXIV's roster, it's expected to be fairly big. While no consoles were announce, PlayStation 4 is a likely bet. The game looking appreciably better than SNK Heroines might mean Switch is off the table.

Pokémon Go Event Adds Mewtwo To Regular Raids, Gen-1 Regionals To 7 KM Eggs

Over the past few months, Niantic has challenged players to complete global objectives during the summer to unlock special days focused on the legendary birds of Gen 1. With the third and final day in the rear-view mirror, Niantic announced a new event to celebrate its community greatly surpassing those aforementioned objectives. The Ultra Bonus Event not only brings the three legendary birds back to raids for a limited time, but puts Mewtwo into regular raids for the first time and gives players the chance to hatch regional Pokémon like Kangaskhan and Mr. Mime without traveling or trading.

You can see the full breakdown of the Ultra Bonus Event below.

This marks the first time that Mewtwo has appeared outside of the controversial, invitation-only EX raid battles. It's also the first time many players will have the chance to add the regional Pokémon to their Pokédex. For more on Pokémon Go, check out our updated guide for newcomers and veterans alike.

Report: Yoshinori Ono No Longer In Charge Of Capcom's Fighting Game Division

Yoshinori Ono, the boisterous face of Capcom's various fighting games, has reportedly been moved to a different position within Capcom. Ryozo Tsujimoto, the son of Capcom's founder and producer for the Monster Hunter series, has apparently absorbed the fighting game division under his umbrella.

The news is reported by Eventhubs, which has been tracking position changes via Capcom's financial reports, and has noted that Ono's title changed from the general manager of Capcom's division 2 to general manager of division 3. Meanwhile, Tsujimoto has absorbed division 2, which develops games like Street Fighter V and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

Speculation in the article is that Capcom was unsatisfied by Street Fighter V's anemic launch, and the subsequent poor reputation that has followed the game since release, and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was more or less rejected by the fighting game community and wasn't picked up for its debut Evo tournament this year.

Other bits of intel include the ARG-esque marketing campaign for BioShock 2, and how Irrational Games struggled to create the character of Elizabeth.
