Bandai Namco Games America Inc. will release Godzilla on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles for summer 2015.
The videogame, developed by Natsume Atari, has players (as the titular character) destroying each area’s Energy Generator and collecting as much G-Energy as possible (the energy is used to power-up Godzilla). A movie-style camera angle system is also inflused into the game, which also has Godzilla taking on Mothra, King Ghidorah, and Mechagodzilla.
With Mission mode, players will cover over 20 stages of gameplay. Diorama mode is available for players who want to capture photos of Godzilla in different environments, and with King of Monsters mode Godzilla fights other creatures to become the true leader of the world beating beasts.
“Godzilla has had a long history and is one of Japan’s most famous pop culture exports that have entertained millions of people for generations in the West.” said Chris Gilbert, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. “We’re excited to continue this great history by bringing the Godzilla videogame for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 to excited fans. Let the countdown to monstrous destruction and epic battles begin!”

Dragon Ball Xenoverse, a collaboration between Bandai Namco Games and Japan based developer Dimps, makes its debut on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Steam on February 17, 2015.
Diehard Dragonball enthusiasts can also pick up a “Day 1” edition of the game that will contain exclusive playable characters which include Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta and two special Frieza Soldier’s Battle Suits.
The title, which contains characters from Dragon Ball GT, features a new Tournament Budokai Tenkaichi mode which has fighters gathering and deciding who’s the strongest warrior in the universe. I can’t even imagine how epic this brawler is going to be (the mode is accessible through Toki Toki City).
More updates are coming down the road, but for now, check out the game’s pretty kick-ass box art below:
I also dug the game’s trailer, which contains over-the-top narration. My favorite line, which comes 1:26 into the clip is: “The hero is goku – no the hero is you!!”
The new trailer for Digimon All-Star Rumble features the various playable Digimon and their Digivolved forms in the throes of conflict. Under the game’s Story Mode, players will discover the genesis behind the “Digimon Evolution Tournament” and uncover the secret agenda that has kept its wheels turning.
Each Digmon gets their own sequence under Story Mode, and at the end of each stage players will take on a rival that will try to knock them out of the tournament. The goal is to Digivolve, vanquish your opponents and become a tough as nails Digimon hero. The game is being featured at this year’s New York Comic Con (it runs October 9-12) and a Digimon giveaway is being hosted on Tumblr during the convention.

Digimon All-Star Rumble (Bandai Namco Games, ESRB: E10+, $39.99) is slated for release November 11 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. To pre-order the game, please go to this link: http://amzn.to/ZcDbwi
One of the most ambitious games I’ve played on my PlayStation Vita is the recently released BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. title Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment. A major update was released last week to heighten the title’s MMO simulated, RPG experience.
With the update, gamers can take part in the “Grand Quest,” an eent which gives players the chance to gain a secret special attack. New bosses, monsters, weapons, as well as character interactions with Argo, Sachi, and Kibaou are also available with the update.
I’ll be posting a Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment review later this week, and if you’re a fan of RPG journeys that contain beautifully rendered cut scenes and possess an addictive hack and slash mechanic, this game shouldn’t disappoint.
Below is a selection of what you’ll see with the update:
Bandai Namco Games America has released new multiplayer versus battle screenshots to detail the Tenkai Knight fighting technique called Robofusion that’s featured in the Nintendo 3DS title Tenkai Knights: Brave Battle.
With Robofusion, players will engage in a high level of shapeshifting which occurs when Tenkai energy is perfectly in sync to create a robot that is more powerful than any individual robot unit. The Tenkai Knights can enter Robofusion mode with an ally to combine powers and utilize combo attacks to defeat their enemies.
A screenshot has also been released of the previously announced Limited Edition bundle that features a red metallic Bravenwolf figure that will be sold exclusively at Target stores in the U.S. Tenkai Knights: Brave Battle comes out on the Nintendo 3DS October 7, 2014 and retails at $29.99.
Bandai Namco Games America Inc. and Slightly Mad Studios have announced that Project Cars comes out November 18 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Wii U version comes out next year.
Gamers who pre-order Project Cars from participating relatainers will receive instant access to the Modified Car Pack, which features the following vehicles:
Ruf CTR3 SMS-R – A race spec version of the Ruf CTR3 super sports car created by Slightly Mad Studios. The new version contains 750 horsepower and tops out at 330 km/h.
Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster – An open top racer which contains an “extravagant beauty to match its multi-million dollar price tag.”
Ariel Atom 3 Mugen – Gets from 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and has a Honda Type R engine. Aesthetics wise, it stands out with its red chassis and white bodywork.
The Pokémon franchise is all about evolution, and the Pokémon Company and Bandai Namco Games have announced their collaboration for the upcoming game Pokkén Tournament. No word if or when the title, which debuts in Japan arcades, will be released stateside.
As the name suggests, Pokkén Tournament is not a classic RPG style experience, as players will get to duke it out amidst an arcade fighting style aesthetic. A sneak peak video pitting Lucario (the canine looking battler) against Machamp. Check out the video below, and more info regarding Pokkén Tournament (or at least more footage) should be announced in the coming weeks.
