Confirmed Songs, Characters and a Bunch of Screenshots for FF: Theatrhythm

July 22, 2011 by


A lot of screenshots and some new info hit the net today for Square-Enix’ upcoming 3DS Final Fantasy music title Theatrhythm. (In case you’re not familiar with it, check the reveal here) The following tracks have been confirmed to be in the game:

  • The Final Fantasy Theme
  • Battle on the Big Bridge (FFV)
  • One-Winged Angel (FFVII)
  • At Zanarkand (FFX)
  • The Sunleth Waterscape (FFXIII)

As for characters, only 4 have been announced so far: Cloud from FFVII, Warrior of Light (FFI onwards), Onion Knight (FFIII onwards) and Lightning from FFXIII.

I can’t shake the feeling that this whole thing should be nothing more than a minigame in a main installment in the series, but oh well. The game is being overseen by Tetsuya Nomura, so at least it’s in good hands. Hit the jump to check out a bunch of screenshots and character art.

Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 Announced

July 20, 2011 by


The internet is abuzz right now with the announcement of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. The game will be shown at Comic-Con and features 12 new characters, 8 new stages and some refinements to the gameplay. With this announcement following so soon after the cancelation of Megaman Legends 3 and coupled with that ingenious idea of not being able to delete savegames from Resident Evil Mercenaries 3D, Capcom is apparently doing their hardest to piss off their fans. Good job so far, Capcom!

Final Fantasy Type 0 Gets First Release Date

July 20, 2011 by


Final Fantasy Type 0 will be released in Japan on October 13th and ship on two UMDs. No word on an international release date has been given so far.

And…that’s about all I have to say. No use padding this post out, as people who actually care about this game will already be familiar with it.

Capcom Cancels Megaman Legends 3

July 19, 2011 by


In a move that I can only describe as baffling, Capcom announced that they have canceled production on Megaman Legends 3. This comes as quite a surprise, as Capcom previously went to great lengths to make the game in the first place. It took them roughly 10 years to even start production on it and then they approached fans to get feedback and input, in order to make the game a worthy entry in the popular franchise. The only reason for the cancelation given was that the project “wasn’t meeting it’s goals at this time”.

Call me unprofessional, but canceling the game after teasing us fans is kind of a dick move, especially with such a lame reason.

Capcom Reveals Advanced Classes for Dragon’s Dogma

July 16, 2011 by


Here’s some more Dragon’s Dogma for you. Capcom revealed some information about the different classes you can choose in their upcoming Xbox360/PS3 fantasy adventure game. The three base classes are Fighter, Strider and Mage, with Strider being the quick and nimble class that uses bows and arrows to attack from a distance (Fighter and Mage should be self-explanatory, really). When you level up enough, you’ll get access to the advanced classes Warrior, Ranger and Sorcerer respectively. These are pretty much just improved versions of the base classes, giving you more health, range and access to better spells etc. While only having three classes plus their advanced counterparts seems a bit anemic, you’re not limited to these three choices, as you can mix and match your own custom class. Capcom will release more info on this system in the next few days.

First Two Potential Spouses for Rune Factory 4 Revealed

July 15, 2011 by


We reported on the upcoming 4th main installment in the long-running Rune Factory franchise, and how this time you could have several partners/lovers at once. Now Marvelous Entertainment has revealed two possible candidates to work your magic on. The first one is Margaret, a kind and helpful elven girl that can entertain your dinner guests with beautiful music; and while she has severe acrophobia, she lives at the edge of a cliff. Awesome idea.

Female players will get a chance to get together with Vishnal (at least I think that’s what he’s called; the romanization of his name is bishunaru), a meek and naive boy who’s training hard to become a court official after he left home because of an argument he had with his parents. Yeah, I’m…not even gonna say anything about that one.

Hit the jump to take a look at these first two potential spouses.

Konami Releases Lords of Shadow Beta Footage feat. Simon Belmont

July 13, 2011 by


Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was a worthy entry in the long-running Castlevania franchise and definitely the best 3D Castlevania to date. Now Konami released some official concept footage of the game, featuring none other than Simon Belmont, the original NES vampire hunter. While I actually liked Gabriel quite a lot, I wonder how the game would have turned out with Simon as the main man. Check out the video after the jump.
