Life Is Strange 2 Launch Trailer Shows More People, Strangeness

With the lead up to the game's launch later this week, Square Enix has dropped a launch trailer for Life is Strange 2, which includes a bit of new footage.

While the trailer recounts much of the overall plot of Life is Strange to (you can find a thorough breakdown of what's going on in our preview), we get to see the brothers interact with a few new characters, which shows off that, for better or worse, Sean and Daniel won't always be alone on their journey.

Life is Strange 2 is scheduled to release on September 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy Coming To Consoles Early Next Year

The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, previously available on 3DS, is heading to consoles, and here's the trailer to prove it.

The port, which is headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC early next year, features many of the features of the 3DS version, including higher-res assets and reworked text. Other than that, however, it looks to be a mostly faithful re-release of the first three games in the Ace Attorney franchise. You can check out the trilogy in action below.

New Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Footage Shows New Boss Isn't Messing Around

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice impressed us back when we played it at Gamescom, with its interesting twists on the formula From Software has been building on for years. One thing we weren't able to show during our demo, however, was a tried-and-true boss fight - a hallmark of these kinds of games.

Thankfully, Sony has uploaded some extended gameplay footage from that demo, including a look at a boss, which shows off just how important grappling and parrying off are during combat. Of course, this being a game from From Software, the demo doesn't have a happy ending for the person playing.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is scheduled to release March 22, 2019.

Our Five Biggest Takeaways From Our Hands-On With Devil May Cry 5’s Dante

The Devil May Cry series practically invented the phrase “stylish action” with its fearless demon-hunter Dante. A fixture of the franchise since the first entry, it’s not all that surprising that Capcom brought him back for Devil May Cry 5. During the adventure, you will swap between him, Nero, and a brand-new, mysterious character named V. After going hands-on and chatting with the developers about the newest entry at TGS, we can assure you that Dante is still the badass you’ve come to know and love, but this time around has plenty of new tricks up his sleeves. Here are our biggest take away from our extensive demo.

Persona Q 2, the second game in the series of Persona crossovers based around Etrian Odyssey's mechanics, is coming out in Japan later this year. While the previous game brought together the casts of Persona 3 and 4, the sequel adds Persona 5 into the mix for a cinema-themed story. You can check out the intro video below.

The intro also shows a few of the original characters in the game, much like Persona Q had.

While Persona Q 2 has not yet been announced for America, Atlus has never shied away from releasing a game on aging systems, especially for more fan-oriented titles. The Japanese version of the game launches in November on 3DS.

Trials Rising Is Ridiculous Globe-Trotting Fun

Trials Rising Is Ridiculous Globe-Trotting Fun

Trials Rising's has a deceptively simple goal: race a motorcycle to the end of the track as fast as you can. This is easier said than done, since each course invents increasingly creative ways to smear you across the pavement. Luckily, crashing is almost as fun as sailing past the checkered finish-line. Ubisoft's latest entry in the Trials series is fast-paced, over-the-top, and fun as hell.

I recently played the closed beta and, while features like the Store and Track Editor were unavailable, I had access to nineteen different tracks mostly scattered across North America and Europe. It is the first main entry in the Trials series since 2014, and Ubisoft’s decision to work with the community pays off with a tutorial system that quickly gets newcomers up to speed while still engaging long-time fans.

The Biggest Takeaways From Our Red Dead Redemption II Hands-On Demo

The Biggest Takeaways From Our Red Dead Redemption II Hands-On Demo

Last week, I visited Rockstar’s headquarters in New York City to play the most highly anticipated game of the year. It’s been eight years since Red Dead Redemption was released, and enthusiasm over John Marston’s open-world adventure hasn’t dimmed. Would new protagonist Arthur Morgan be up to snuff? Can Rockstar create a worthy follow-up to such a beloved game? The sequel has some mighty big boots to fill, in other words. After getting some hands-on time with the game, playing through a couple of missions, exploring camp life, and visiting a nearby town, I’m confident in saying that Red Dead Redemption II is worth the wait.   

During my time with the game, I played through a couple of different missions. In the first one, Dutch’s gang pulled off a train heist, which didn’t go off exactly as planned. The other mission was a raid against a rival gang’s hideout that started quiet and ended in an all-out assault. Rather than provide a beat-by-beat recounting of those two sequences, I’m pulling out the highlights – whether they revolve around new systems, tweaks to existing elements, or little touches that added a little extra magic to the game. 

Jump Force Reveals New Characters And Adds Customizable Avatars

Jump Force Reveals New Characters And Adds Customizable Avatars

Shonen Jump has long been home some of the most iconic manga and anime figures, such as One Piece’s Luffy and Dragonball’s Goku. To help ring in its 50th anniversary, Jump Force is packing in as many of these faces that have become synonymous with anime into one big ring. Part of the delight is finding out who’s on the roster and what extra additions make it more than just a mash-up. At this past TGS, Bandai Namco announced new characters alongside an online hub and character creation system. Previous reveals have been the kind of slam-dunk characters that you’d expect, but now we’re starting to get some surprises.

While Yu-Gi-Oh!’s Yugi was recently announced, his combat style is now understood, as he battles with three cards: Dark Magician, Dark Magician Girl, and Slifer the Sky Dragon. On top of that, fans of 90s anime will be happy to see two characters from Yu Yu Hakusho, Yusuke and Toguro. That’s not all that’s newly announced, however, as environments like DBZ’s Planet Namek and Japan’s Himeji Castle are now ripe for battle.
