Check Out Splatoon's New Octobrush & N-ZAP '89 in Action

A brush with death

Splatoon updates are coming in thick and fast, and the latest addition to the proceedings include the Octobrush and the N-ZAP '89.

Tomonobu Itagaki Explains Why the Pro Controller Trumps the GamePad in Devil's Third

The GamePad's too big, basically

Devil's Third is still over a month away from its European release, but it's attracting a lot of attention.

When Rune Factory developer Neverland sadly shut up shop in 2013, there was still one project left on the table - a brand new story-driven SRPG named Lord of Magna. It lay unfinished until Marvelous miraculously reassembled part of the original team to finish the game, and we're lucky they did; it's not perfect, but with fun battles,...
