Follow-Up To Arcade Baseball Game Announced With New Features

Major League Baseball Advanced Media announced that it is developing R.B.I. Baseball 15, a follow-up to last year's troubled revitalization of the legendary baseball series. This year's edition brings with it numerous new features that would have helped make last year's game a more well-rounded release.

The latest from MLB Advanced Media includes redesigned authentic ballparks for each of the 30 teams in the league, online multiplayer, and new difficulty settings. The title also allows for game-to-game stat tracking in season mode, including league leaderboards, as well as full 25-man rosters for each team in the MLB.

Ninja Theory Details Vergil’s Bloody Palace Mode With Gameplay Footage

Ninja Theory has handed out a bit more information about a new game mode coming to the Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition. Vergil’s Bloody Palace, which features Dante’s brother Vergil, mimics the similarly named Bloody Palace that has been a series staple since Devil May Cry 2. Vergil’s Bloody Palace also comes with a difficulty twist.

Instead of starting on Human and ramping up through all of the difficulties, the new 60-stage game mode sets out on Nephilim difficulty and transitions every 20 levels until it hits Virgil Must Die difficulty. Ninja Theory developer Dominic Matthews says the mode was one of the first features the studio chose to develop when given the chance to update the game for new consoles.

Director Offers More Details On The Recent Trailer

Persona 5's first substantial trailer premiered earlier this week, and producer and director Katsura Hashino offered some deeper insight into what to expect from the game.

Posting on the Japanese Persona website, Hashino pre-wrote a statement before the trailer went live and shared some of his fear about waiting to hear what the fans would have to say. You can find the full translation of Hashino's message on Siliconera, but here are a pair of the highlights:

This time, it’s about a group of high school students that are being “chased” by unexpected occurrences due to the justice they believe in. We’re writing [the story] to convey a thrilling everyday life in the shoes of these characters, that are as large as life, in this juvenile school setting.

DmC Devil May Cry was no slouch in the graphics department when it released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360, so to see the game running even smoother is an impressive feat.

Haemimont Games, best known as the developers of the Tropico series, announced today that it's partnering with Eurovideo Medien to bring out its first action RPG Victor Vran.

Unlike Diablo, all players control the protagonist, Victor, and customize him with weapons (swords, hammers, guns, and mortars) and various outfits. The focus of Victor Vran isn’t on the loot, but rather the action itself. To that end the developers included a jump button which is designed to open up combat and traversal. Friends can join you in slaying demons together or you can compete with others online.
