New Dragon’s Dogma Screenshots Show Off Chimera

July 11, 2011 by

dogma2

Capcom Japan released a batch of new screenshots today, showing off one of the bigger monsters players will be fighting in their upcoming open world fantasy game Dragon’s Dogma. Lurking in dungeons at the beginning of the game, would-be adventurers will have to fight the Chimera, the creature from Greek mythology that’s part lion, part goat and has a snake for a tail. While it’s a lot bigger than your average human adventurer, it’s very quick and nimble, forcing the player to coordinate with his other party members to force it into a corner and take it down. The thing looks quite badass, so hit the jump and take a look for yourself.

theat

Square-Enix recently revealed a new Final Fantasy title they’re working on for the 3DS together with developer indieszero. It’s called Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy and will be a music game featuring music from all the numbered installments in the series up to XIII.

Yes, you read that right. And yes, it’s called Theatrhythm. You thought Dissidia: Duodecim was bad?

Each numbered entry in the Final Fantasy series basically comprises one episode of the game. After choosing a party, episode and difficulty level, players will go through three main stages, Field, Battle and Event, all the while interacting with the world using music-based gameplay. Defeating monsters will level up the characters, although no details on how that will work have been given as of yet. Players will also be able to unlock new music, movies and other things.

No release date has been given so far. Hit the jump to see the first two screenshots of the game in action.

Rune Factory 4 (3DS) Detailed

July 5, 2011 by

rune

Marvelous Entertainment recently released some new info on the 4th portable installment of their successful Harvest Moon spin-off series Rune Factory. No release date has been given as of yet, but the game will come out some time in 2011 and it’s extremely likely that Natsume will once again bring the game to the US and Europe.

In this 3DS-exclusive installment, you take control of either Les or Frey. At the beginning of the game, your character falls out of an airship and onto a dragon, losing his (or her) memory on impact. The dragon then somehow arranges your character to be regarded as the prince/princess of the country, giving you a little more freedom than previous games in the series and allowing you to construct buildings and institutions like pharmacies or smithies. For an introduction to some of the new systems employed in the game, check after the jump.
