Can you resist?
Fancy a beach holiday? How about a free trip to New Zach Island in Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet? Soon you'll be able to visit paradise on your Nintendo Switch when Koei Tecmo releases the "Basic Free Edition" of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet on the Japanese eShop at the end of this month. Provided you have access to a Japanese...
The Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee has once again revealed an upcoming release ahead of schedule. This time it's a rating for "Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle" on multiple platforms including the Nintendo Switch. It's also rated the "Final Battle Upgrade Pack" for the same lot of systems. If this sounds familiar, it's because this is...
Times are changin’
Despite the fact Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet is not a mainline entry in the DoA series, there’s still admittedly some interest in the upcoming release here in the west because the existing entries have been made available outside of Japan in the past. For anyone who was looking forward to some fun in the sun on the Switch...
Last week, Koei Tecmo teased a new game for multiple platforms including the Nintendo Switch. The website for this title featured a flame-filled background and noted how the "fated battle" would begin on 6th December. It turns out the announcement was for the next entry in the horse racing simulation series, Winning Post. This week's...
What could it be?
Koei Tecmo has been one of the biggest supporters of the Switch and it doesn't appear as if it will be slowing down production on the hybrid platform any time soon. Following the announcement Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet would surface on Nintendo's latest system early next year, the Japanese company is now reportedly teasing a...
Another success story
The Switch has allowed Nintendo to re-release Wii U games that many people missed out on the first time. So far we've seen titles like Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker make the transition across to the new hybrid device. Early next year,
Which is one more than we've won
We often see big first-party games like Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild take home various awards for their design, such as 'Game of the Year' or 'Award for Innovation', but we don't often see a video game walk away with a Guinness World Record. Breaking that trend in style is Warriors...
A helping hand
Yesterday, Square Enix broadcast a special live stream for the upcoming Switch release, Dragon Quest Builders 2. Apart from the announcement the sequel would be arriving in Japan on 20th December, it was also revealed Koei Tecmo helped Square Enix during the development of the sequel. Its primary focus was to enhance the...
Super Mario Warriors?
Koei Tecmo is a name that may be a little more familiar to Nintendo fans in recent years, as it’s pushed out both Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors, crossovers between Nintendo’s popular franchises and the company’s Musou games. While there’s no news on what else the companies are collaborating on, if anything,...
The playable cast and more are also revealed
Attack on Titan 2 should be an interesting release next year on Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC, as the follow-up to the 'main' predecessor developed by Koei Tecmo and the Omega Force team. A live stream (in Japanese) revealed more on the title today, including the release window - it's due to arrive in...
The first opportunity to go hands on
For fans of the anime the original Attack on Titan console game was an exciting release, while there was also an interesting 3DS title localised out of Japan. With the Switch now getting some cross-platform games, however, it was particularly pleasing to hear recently that it's getting Attack on Titan 2, the next...
Physical and digital releases, but only for Japan at present
To mark Omega Force's 20th birthday publisher Koei Tecmo is re-releasing some of the most famous entries in the Warriors series on the Nintendo Switch. On November 9th, the Switch will be getting Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires, Samurai Warriors: Spirit of...
Marks publisher's western debut on the console
Koei Tecmo has confirmed that Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon will be coming to the Nintendo Switch this year. Also slated for release on the PS4, the title arrives in the west on October 24th and marks the publisher's western debut for the Switch. As you can see from the trailer...
We heard you like games about Eastern history
Koei Tecmo is supporting the Switch with two of its biggest franchises - Nobunaga's Ambition and Romance of the Three Kingdoms - and has just released some lovely trailers to promote them. Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence and Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII aren't entirely new releases and...
The long-running series continues
Nintendo may want its third party supporters to keep their mouths shut regarding Switch software, but that hasn't dissuaded Koei Tecmo from confirming that it is bringing its popular Nobunaga's Ambition series to the new console. The news was revealed by general producer Kou Shibusawa during a Historical Simulation...
But of course
Veteran Japanese publisher Koei Tecmo has publicly confirmed that it has software in production for Nintendo's mysterious NX console. The company - which worked with Nintendo recently on Hyrule Warriors - has clearly had some access to the NX previously. Last year, President and CEO Yoichi Erikawa was the first
Fingers crossed for Nintendo support
Koei Tecmo can certainly be considered among Nintendo's most valuable allies in Japan. It not only develops the Nintendo-owned Fatal Frame titles, but has also produced titles such as the rather popular Hyrule Warriors. That Legend of Zelda spin-off has shipped over a million copies on Wii U and is coming to the...
Spirit selfies still a long way off
Grab those tissues, because Koei Tecmo Europe has practically confirmed that Wii U exclusive Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden won't set foot outside of Japan. In response to Twitterers requesting news of a potential western release of this latest instalment of the Fatal Frame series using the...
New to the franchise? Allow us to educate
With Hyrule Warriors marching dangerously close to its day of release, we wonder how many Nintendo gamers know their Dynasty Warriors from their Samurai Warriors – their Lu Bu from their Tadakatsu Honda. Indeed, most probably already know that Hyrule Warriors itself is just another in a long line of...
Capcom has taken Koei Tecmo to court in Japan in relation to patent infringement and is seeking a settlement of $9.43 million. The first oral arguments were heard today in Osaka District Court. The first patent named in the lawsuit was filed by Capcom in 2002 and relates to "a function that lets you acquire new content by combining an...
Here's hoping for Enix Square and Comcap next
Not long after the earth shattering news — well, not really — that Namco Bandai would be known by its Japanese name (Bandai Namco) around the world, we now have Hyrule Warriors developer Tecmo Koei reversing its name in Europe. Below is the announcement of the switch that'll take place from 1st July...
