Shrine of the Prince of Thieves Location - Octopath Traveler

Octopath Traveler is a game with a considerable variety of options available to players who wish to customize their party and put the hurt down on foes lurking around the continent of Orsterra. Part of that level of customization involves selecting various secondary job classes, and unlocking those job classes requires players to seek out and discover various shrines. In particular, unlocking the Thief secondary job class requires players to locate the Shrine of the Prince of Thieves, and we know just how to find it.

The Shrine of the Prince of Thieves is one of the easier shrines to find in Octopath Traveler. Some shrines are hidden behind cover, obscured from sight, or involve exploring around open areas; this one simply rests at the end of an obvious path that doesn't lead anywhere else. Starting from the save point and sign post due south of Quarrycrest, in the area known as the South Quarrycrest Pass, head west around the cliffside and past the bridge leading south. The path will continue down a short ramp, turn south, then loop back around under the bridge.

VR Rhythm Game Hotel Transylvania Popstic Is Coming to Arcades Worldwide

VR Rhythm Game Hotel Transylvania Popstic Is Coming to Arcades Worldwide

Wanna shake what your mama gave you with the monsters from the Hotel Transylvania series? You can, very soon, as a new game based on the animated movie franchise is now available at over 500 VR arcades across North America, Europe, and China. The game, surprisingly, is a VR rhythm title, called Hotel Transylvania Popstic. It's not exactly what you may have had in mind for the property, given its horror roots and monster-laden story, but hey! More rhythm games are always good in my book.

You can select from Drac, Mavis, or Johnny to play as your DJ, and then choose songs from the character you've chosen's playlist. Once you've picked out a song, you'll dance along the music while using a VR controller known as a Stic, created by Sony Pictures Virtual Reality from Specular Theory.

“From the outset, Hotel Transylvania Popstic was designed to work for the growing VR arcade audience. It’s the perfect pairing of a movie brand that families love and a music rhythm game that is as fun to watch as it is to play" said Senior VP of Virtual Reality at Sony Pictures Entertainment Jake Zim.

New My Hero One's Justice Trailer Showcases The Game's Explosive Comic-Styled Action

New My Hero One's Justice Trailer Showcases The Game's Explosive Comic-Styled Action

The more we see of My Hero One's Justice, the more we want to play it. Or just watch a few awesome episodes of the series, at the very least. Bandai Namco has showed off a few great looks at the upcoming 3D battler featuring our favorite characters from My Hero Academia, and it looks like it was ripped straight from the pages of your favorite comic book.

The newest trailer focuses on Himiko and Dabi, as well as a selection of some of the powerful All Might's amazing power. Watching him fight, intercut with the other heroes in the show gets your blood pumping, that's for sure. Deku even looks like something of a badass as he launches an onslaught of attacks against the others, complete with comic book onomatopoeia.

The stages are destructible, and you can swap in and out with special Sidekicks as you tackle the Hero Side of the Story Mode, or the Villain Side. Unfortunately, the game features Japanese voice acting, apparently, so if you were hoping to hear your favorite English voice actors, you may be out of luck here.

Final Score: Octopath Traveler

While Square Enix is pushing the Final Fantasy series in newer, more modern directions, the publisher is also proving that it can still craft together quality classic-style RPGs. The Bravely Default series showed off Square's penchant for sticking to the classic style, but Octopath Traveler goes a step further by fully embracing old-school pixel art and depending on old-fashioned storytelling and solid RPG mechanics to carry it through.

For this edition of Final Score, Shacknews is revisiting our review of Octopath Traveler, while also putting it up against reviews from our gaming brethren from other outlets. Check out the melting pot of opinions and decide for yourself whether Square's latest JRPG is worth exploring on the Nintendo Switch.

Fortnite Season 5 Gameplay Shows Off New Viking Ship and Village

Fortnite Season 5 Gameplay Shows Off New Viking Ship and Village

We here at Shacknews know a thing or two about viking culture — and no, we're not just coasting off details gleaned from marathoning the History television series Vikings. Still, we won't sit here and ramble on about mead halls or snekkjas; instead, we'll offer up some new Fortnite Season 5 footage showing off the game's new viking ship and village, the likes of which are holed up in the new viking-themed village found between Snobby Shores and Greasy Grove — the exact location where a mysterious anchor fell through the rift near the beginning of this month.

The Viking ship is clearly visible from the air, and it's sitting atop a brand-new waterfall that may tempt some players into jumping off — a fine course of action if having the hero die is somehow preferable. The ship also sits amidst a new village with a distinct viking theme, featuring straw-topped huts, rough-hewn lumber fences, a couple of fire pits, and other various decorative bits. As for loot and chests, the viking village doesn't really have much to offer, and its position on top of a mountain doesn't make it a particularly good hiding space, though dedicated snipers may find it to be a good perch assuming they can stay out of sight.
