  • News Fatal Frame Spin-Off Looms Over 3DS

    Spirit Photo comes into focus

    The West is still waiting for Fatal Frame IV on Wii, but the development team is now working on a spin-off for the 3DS called Spirit Photo, according to Famitsu (via Andriasang.) Predictably you'll be taking photos of the departed, using the 3DS's cameras in the process. The game also contains something called an AR Notebook, and although details on this are sketchy at..

    3DS fighter gets named

    Tecmo's Dead or Alive series has walked a fine line between serious and absurd ever since its first home conversion offered the option to boost the bounce of its female fighters.

  • First Impressions Tsuppari Oozumou Wii Heya

    Su-mo! Su-mo!

    Back in 1987 Tecmo released Tsuppari Oozumou for the Famicom. This was the first (and one of the only) sumo wrestling games to come to home consoles and was basically a button masher at heart where the object, like real sumo, is to force your opponent out of the ring or put him on his back like a fat unruly turtle. A sequel followed on the Super Famicom, but the character design was..
