Battlefield V Delayed

Electronic Arts is delaying the release of Battlefield V from October 19 to November 20. However, the game's open beta starting on September 6 (the fourth for EA Access, Origin Access, and Origin Access Premier subscribers) remains.

In a blog post, Oskar Gabrielson, general manager of developer EA DICE, says that the delay is being made due to feedback that the team has gathered so far from closed alpha sessions and from conventions like the recent Gamescom show.

Gabrielson specifically mentions "adjusting the gameplay tempo, improving soldier visibility, and reducing player friction," and he adds that these will evident in the September beta.

Dragon Ball FighterZ Cooler Gameplay Trailer Shows Frieza's Brother In All His Glory

Bandai Namco has a tendency to offer short character trailers for Dragon Ball FighterZ, but has seemingly tried to reverse that the longer trailer at EVO and a five minute trailer right here to show off Cooler, the next DLC character for the game. Granted, that's mostly because a full fight showing Cooler off, but it's cool (er) to see him in action.

Cooler is intended to be released in late September, probably coinciding around the Dragon Ball FighterZ Switch port on September 28. The game is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Sega Survey Hints At Possible Yakuza Spinoff Localizations

Sega Survey Hints At Possible Yakuza Spinoff Localizations

As Sega tends to do whenever a new Yakuza game comes out in America, another survey has been given to the public to see what the Yakuza-loving fanbase wants to see next. This time, the survey implies that Sega has put Yakuza's feudal Japanese spinoffs on the table for localization next.

In the survey, which you can find here, fans are asked "How interested are you in purchasing the various spin-off titles that have never received western release?" While this description does fit a few options, including the Yakuza PSP game, it is most likely referring to the feudal Japanese-era titles.

On the PlayStation 3, Sega decided to take Yakuza for a different kind of spin with Jidaigeki, or period piece mostly commonly used to refer to samurai-era Japan, settings. The first game, Kenzan, was fairly highly praised, but Sega refused to bring it over. The Yakuza series was already a tough sell at the time and the thought seemed to be that Kenzan's story would be too confusing for Americans.

Ninja Gaiden Developers Play The Messenger In This Video

The Messenger, out tomorrow, is a Ninja Gaiden-inspired indie platformer that wears that inspiration on its sleeve. The game even goes as far to literally mention Ninja Gaiden by name early on when the journey begins.

Devolver Digital realized it made sense to have Ninja Gaiden's director Hideo Yoshizawa and composer Keiji Yamagishi play through The Messenger and chat about the game and even talk a bit about their own experiences making one of the NES's most notable and punishing action-platforming games. For example, did you know Nintendo asked Tecmo to create an underwater level for the game because they, for some reason, thought platformers needed one?
