The Dynasty Warriors series has become a giant juggernaut brand, spawning eight mainline games and spin-offs. It's been 13 years since the last proper tactics game in this series was released back on the PS2.

The confirmed cast so far include Zhao Yun, his best friend Lei Bin, and a mysterious girl named Lixia. Combat takes place on a standard grid, though enemy units are grouped up into larger squads instead of stream about the field like in the mainline games. I don't usually play the main series games but I might check out this deviation from the classic formula.

Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers is slated to release January 31. You can check out the announcement trailer below.

Overview Video Shows Off Just How Close The 3DS Version Is To The Wii U Version

Nintendo released a new overview video today that shows off many of the 3DS version of Super Mario Maker's mechanics.

Unsurprisingly, the 3DS version is very close to the Wii U version, though there are some shortcomings, like its limited online interactivity. The act of making levels, however, appears to be mostly identical to the Wii U version of the game, which is good news for all the Mario creators out there.

Super Mario Maker 3DS releases for its new platform on December 2.

A Fighting Game Without The Complexities

A Fighting Game Without The Complexities

Street Fighter V, Mortal Kombat X, and most niche Japanese fighting games are known for their varying levels of complexities. The physical and mental dexterity needed to excel in these games makes most players quit or resort to casual-only play. Fantasy Strike, a fighting game funded on Patreon, is attempting to change that.

Fantasy Strike only has a four buttons that correspond to simple moves. Specials don't even have complex joystick motions, as they are regulated to a single button press. Getting out of throws, something that is notoriously difficult in fighting games, requires no button press. Letting go of all the buttons lets you escape a grab and perform a counter called a Yomi Counter. These simplified systems allow them to let players get "to the strategy part of the game immediately, in the first minute you play it."

The game also currently has eight playable characters, with developer Sirlin Games promising more fighters at a later date. Fantasy Strike's online play will also use GGPO, a popular netcode used in many fighting games.
