6w ago - Sony Producer Brad Foxhoven announced today alongside a video that a Heavenly Sword animated feature film is coming in 2014.
Below are the details, to quote: *This movie has not been rated.
Today we're proud to announce the Heavenly Sword feature film. This is a CG animated film based on the game that originally launched in 2007. The Heavenly Sword film is slated to be released digitally worldwide, as well as theatrically in select global markets, in Spring 2014. The film stars Anna Torv, Alfred Molina, and Thomas Jane.
Heavenly Sword is a dramatic tale of revenge that sees Nariko (Anna Torv), a fiery red-haired heroine, embark on a quest of vengeance against the invading King Bohan (Alfred Molina) and his army. Once considered the failure of a legendary prophecy, Nariko must wield a sword that was ultimately meant for another.
This ancient Heavenly Sword, once belonging to a powerful deity, can never be wielded by a mortal without slowly and inevitably killing them. For Nariko, it's a race against time to avenge her clan before her life is irreparably overtaken by the omnipotent Heavenly Sword.
I think it's important to understand where Heavenly Sword stands for us, as many of you know...

To quote: EDF! EDF! EDF! Just shouting out this simple phrase brings back fond memories of Earth Defense Force 2017, and now I'm pumped to share more details about the launch of Earth Defense Force 2025 in February of next year. In particular, what fans can expect from some of the upcoming weapon packs that will be available via pre-order or DLC.
We've been on tour with Earth Defense Force 2025 for the last few months, showing off all its awesome features at events like E3, PAX Prime, and New York Comic-Con. Fans continuously ask us if the DLC from Japan will be available in North America and Europe. And I can proudly say "yes!" We'll make sure all content from Japan makes it over here at some point, and we'll have more details on all of that in the near future.

7w ago - XSEED Games Localization Manager Ryan Graff announced today that Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is coming to both PS3 and PS Vita in 2014.
To quote: Since we first announced our action RPG Ragnarok Odyssey ACE back in May, we've gotten all kinds of questions, the most popular among them being, "What exactly is Ragnarok Odyssey ACE?" Fans want to know if it's a DLC expansion for the original Ragnarok Odyssey, if it's a whole new game, whether your character and/or story progress carries over, and so on.
Because I've got a minute, in between proofreading ACE's script and heading out to the voiceover studio, I wanted to answer some of those questions now.
Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is a full game - a revised and expanded version of the original Ragnarok Odyssey. We'll be releasing it early next year in North America for both Vita and PS3, and up to four players will be able to cross-play between the two platforms.
Both versions will retail for $39.99. As a "thank you" to returning players on the handheld, ACE's Vita version will ship with a bonus soundtrack CD, with 25 songs - including one very nice composition from Nobuo Uematsu, called "Roar of the Black Dragon."
Players with existing Ragnarok Odyssey saves can import their character's physical appearance, voice, job class,...

To quote: After months of anticipation, the wait is over: the all-new Rocksmith 2014 Edition is out today.
Since its announcement at E3 this past June, we've been inundated with questions and enthusiasm from gamers and guitarists alike about the new game. While the first Rocksmith was successful in helping more than a million people either learn guitar from scratch or refine their existing techniques, Rocksmith 2014 Edition is an entirely different beast.
We've completely rebuilt the product from the ground up, improving all existing features and introducing amazing new ones. Check out our "How It Works" trailer above for the basics.
From 50+ new songs on disk, to the ground-breaking Session Mode, Rocksmith 2014 Edition is the total package for learning or practicing guitar.
We're so excited to see it hit shelves, and everyone who worked on it is truly proud of what we've accomplished. Without a doubt, we can confidently say that Rocksmith 2014 Edition is THE fastest way to learn guitar or bass!
7w ago - Ubisoft Senior Community Developer Mike Madavi shared a video introducing an all-new, inclusive video gaming experience dubbed Rocksmith 2014 Edition.
To quote: Rocksmith 2014 Edition is finally out today! Since we announced it at this year's E3 Conference in June, we've seen an outpouring of excitement, questions, and speculation from old fans, as well as those just hearing about Rocksmith for the first time.
Everyone wants to know what's been updated, fixed, and improved upon - all valid questions with a simple answer: Rocksmith 2014 Edition is a full-fledged sequel that has been built from the frame up to be the best, most fun, and fastest way to learn guitar or bass!
Even though the game was announced in June, our Development team at Studio SF in Ubisoft's San Francisco office has been hard at work on Rocksmith 2014 Edition for two years. The process was long, but ultimately worth it as the team took a hard look at the original Rocksmith and decidedly improved on every existing feature while dreaming up innovative new ones. In the words of Paul Cross, our Creative Director, "We set out immediately to do something different."
The entire format has been reduced to the core functionalities and experiences users want out of playing guitar - a simple menu with clear options,...
