God Eater Online Opening Cinematic

If Ufotable know how how to do one thing well, that’s animation. And that’s never more evident than in one of their latest works, the opening cinematic for God Eater Online.

Bandai Namco took the covers off the opening lately which also features the theme song “Get Your World” by Touch My Secret.

The MMO action game for smartphones is coming to Japan for both Android and iOS.

Accel World VS Sword Art Online: Millennium Twilight Game Revealed

Amazing news with the reveal of two similar series’s coming together in a game that looks incredible. Sword Art Online and Accel World both involve storylines that sees protagonists living and having adventures in a virtual world. Both come from the mind of Reki Kawahara and both have a massive fanbase.

The game is called Accel World VS Sword Art Online: Millennium Twilight and is being put together by Bandai Namco and Dengeki Bunko. It’s being released for both the PS Vita and the PS4 and for the main characters, Sword Art Online’s Kirito will be featured as well as Kuroyukihime  from Accel World.

The events of Accel World occur twenty years after Sword Art Online and they both occupy the same universe. Not a lot is known about Kuroyukihime which leads fans online to come up with a theory that Asuna and Kirito are actually her parents. Because the events take place in two different storylines, there may be an element of time travel involved as well.

Unfortunately there’s no release date as yet but it is slated to come out sometime in 2017 which really isn’t that far away.

It’s cute and very colourful which is pretty much what we’ve come to expect from the series. The theme track will be “Yes! Party Time!!”

New Trailer For Tales Of Berseria

I’m excited about this next game which looks amazing with each new trailer release. This trailer is no different. Tales Of Berseria boasts a blend of 3D CG and animation and looks set to be something special when it releases for both PS4 and PC. This trailer features the track, “Burn” by FLOW in the background, it’s quite gorgeous.

Tales Of Berseria is from Bandai Namco and will be released in the West however it hasn’t been dated as yet.

Latest Taiko Drum Master Trailer For 3DS

I absolutely love playing Taiko Drum games in the arcades in Japan but it’s so hard to find here back home. That might be changing soon with the release of Bandai Namco’s latest entry in the popular series, Taiko Drum Master: Doko Don! Mystery Adventure  for the Nintendo 3DS.

Apart from the usual rhythm based section of the game which is normally what makes up a large percentage of the experience, this game sees a new mode called the “Mystery Adventure Mode” with Don-chan in control. Check out the trailer ahead of the game’s release on the 16th of June.

Bayonetta Nearly Made Project X Zone 2

I’ve been busy playing Project X Zone 2 on the 3DS for the past week and I’m loving it. I love the action, the gameplay, the visuals and the amazing roster of characters that you can choose from in the game. I was shattered to find out that a favourite character of mine, Bayonetta, could have been in the game as well.

Hideki Kamiya from Platinum Games was recently asked if the thought of letting Banda Namco include Bayonetta in PXZ2 ever came up, to which he replied, “There was an offer, but I said no. Now I kinda regret that I said no.”

My mouth waters at the thought of what she would have looked like in the game and how her move would translate to finishing moves. Amazing, right? And for good measure, here’s a pic of cosplayer Katyuska Moonfox as Bayonetta.
