Sales Fall Away in Japan as Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Drops to Ninth

New Nintendo 3DS continues battle with PS4 and Vita

It's Media Create Japanese charts time again, and we suspect the results have been greeted with a united sagging of shoulders among the bean counters of publishers and developers. When the number one game sells just 20,494, we'd suggest stiff drinks are required. That number one is Dark Souls...

Project X Zone 2 Crosses Over to the West For a Fall Release on Nintendo 3DS

The Super Smash Bros. of SRPGs gets a sequel

For those of you out of the loop, Project X Zone was a massive SRPG from Bandai Namco, Sega, and Capcom. Featuring over 200 characters (most of which you probably hadn't heard of) from 30 franchises between the three companies, it was quite the mashup.

Rumour: Project X Zone 2: Brave New World Heading to 3DS

Project X Zone 2: Brave New World Heading to 3DS

More cross-over goodness seems to be on the cards

Project X Zone on 3DS isn't perfect, but its bonkers storyline and mashups of Capcom, Sega and Bandai Namco certainly aren't dull. A lengthy, occasionally odd game, for fans of those companies and their storied franchises it can be a slice of anarchic strategy heaven. The good news is that a sequel...

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. Update Goes Live to Speed Things Up

Full steam ahead

Code Name S.T.E.A.M., the new IP from Intelligent Systems, certainly has a number of strengths.

You could make a coffee in the break between moves - oh, alright, we're...
