There's a new Famitsu feature on [b]Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker[/b], the game appears to be coming along well.

 

 

 

 

 

From Software's interesting looking new PS3 game is [b]3D Dot Heroes.[/b] It's the work of Ninja Blade producer Masanori Takeuchi, and is scheduled for November release in Japan.

 

 

 

 

 

On [b]Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep[/b] front, the game is definitely scheduled for 2009 release in Japan. Expect a blowout in next issue of Famitsu.

2. Yeah, that's the game.


Sapphire (on 18 August 2009)

Phantasy Star Portable 3 is it that game that SEGA will announce that have countdown on their site?


Star Scream (on 18 August 2009)

Art looks vaguely similar to '30 Sec Hero' one, I wonder if it's the same artist...


outlawauron (on 18 August 2009)

Wow. So 30 Dot Heroes huh? I guess From Software had a bit more success with PS3 than 360 last year.


Star Scream (on 18 August 2009)

Zexen: It's based on FES, but there will be a lot of changes, new scenarios, music, revamp of soc-link stuff, female protagonist, new difficulty modes, and more.


zexen_lowe (on 18 August 2009)

Persona 3 Portable????? Whaaaaaaat?? I hope it's not a port but a full new game, that would rule so much!! So glad I got a PSP!!


Simulacrum (on 18 August 2009)

Epic pic at cover.


Star Scream (on 18 August 2009)

No screens, Rafa. I'm sure they will be released soon enough since the game is scheduled for November 1 release.


RafaelOrix (on 18 August 2009)

Wow lots of stuff for the PSP! No screens for Locoroco Midnight Carnival?


nintendo_fanboy (on 18 August 2009)

The PSP is getting some decent support it seems.


Star Scream (on 18 August 2009)

There's new Basara for Wii. I was surprised by the Super Robo Gakuen score, hopefully there are no fundamental flaws.


Tayne (on 18 August 2009)

Wii needs some 3rd party announcements in Japan. I await TGS.


NoCtiS_NoX (on 18 August 2009)

Wow lot of great stuff! P3 portable FTW! Finally KH BBS! waiting for any kind of news on this one for ages.


Squall_Leonhart (on 18 August 2009)

Interesting to see a game being made for the Wii and also PS3... but leaving out the 360 completely. It must be that they do not foresee any profit in making the game on the console. Can't wait for BBS :-)
