You traverse a monster-inhabited underworld, inhabited by some of the nicest creatures you'll ever meet, in an attempt to return to the surface. Hug your enemies, go on some dates, and by all means, pet the dogs, but remember: Just because nobody has to die, doesn't mean they can't.

Until then, you can check out the trailer below!

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth Arrives This Fall

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth Arrives This Fall

Here in the west, we've been wondering for a while when the next Etrian Odyssey would be making its dungeon-crawling debut over here, and now we know. The map-making, FOE-fighting (I'm not going to explain what FOE stands for because it can be super confusing, but basically these are roaming monsters that can be stronger than bosses and drop great loot if you cant take them down), and character customizing comes to North America this fall.

For lovers of the classic RPG dungeon crawler format, the Etrian series continues to provide that old-school feel with crisp visuals and significant challenges. There's nothing quite like cobbling together your own map as you explore dungeon tiles, or having a treasure hunt turn into a disaster as a FOE slaughters your whole party in seconds. Endless labyrinths, turn-based battles, and grinding for new abilities give the series a special feel that can be tough to find anywhere else.

A new E3 trailer doesn't show much, but since the game has been out in Japan for some time now, there's lots out there if you want to go looking. Personally, I'm going to go in blind when it arrives this fall.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is coming to Nintendo Switch this summer, and the titular hero has brought a friend along for the ride. Well, if you want to get technical, it's actually her nemesis, Risky Boots.

The Switch version of the game includes the same action that you may have played before, as well as new DLC, Pirate Queen's Quest. This new adventure includes a new storyline where players take command of Risky Boots as she plots to take over Sequin Land for the pirates. Players will be able to track down new gear that unlocks abilities for Risky Boots, such as the ability to perform multi-jumps and glides, or use her bomb shot and grappling hook to defeat her foes.

E3 Trailer Highlights A Curious Combo Of Fighting, Rice Cultivation

You have to hand it to Edelweiss: With its upcoming game Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, the indie studio has created a truly unexpected hybrid. The game features frantic melee combat against monsters, as well as more meditative gameplay where you nurture rice crops from planting to harvest and beyond.

Publisher XSEED Games teased the title leading up to E3, but a new English-language trailer is a bit more approachable for Western audiences, even if the concept remains decidedly foreign. After being banished from the celestial realm, the harvest goddess Sakuna is exiled to a demon-infested place called Hinoe Island. There, she has to fight the monsters and bring peace and prosperity back to the land.

Things Get Personal In Yakuza 6: The Song of Life

In early 2018, players have the chance to once again fill the shoes of Kazuma Kiryu on a new adventure exclusively on PS4.

While the Yakuza titles are filled with off-kilter humor and often veer into the world of the completely bizarre, the plot this time around is personal. Blood for blood kinda stuff. Are you ready to take up arms for your family and wreck your opponents with off-the-wall combat, headbutts, and other giant things being thrown around?

Of course you are! Yakuza 6 features the new "Dragon Engine" which lets Kiryu and the environments really shine and sparkle.

Roaring Around The Race Track

Roaring Around The Race Track

Project Cars 2, the sequel to the popular motorsports game by Slightly Mad Studios, arrives in September. We recently got some hands-on time with the game that allowed us to experience first-hand what Slightly Mad is bringing to the speedway this September.

I drove around a single track that was covered in beautiful daylight. I spun between mounds of tires with my modified Porsche and bounced along the sides of other vehicles as we tore around a circular track. The handling was fun and challenging to get used to after the floaty driving of Grand Theft Auto V and other open-world games. However, there's an amount of weight behind those controls that makes every impact feel heavier and more satisfying, and the hum of the engine is pleasant to hear...at least until you run headlong into a wall.
