63w ago - Capcom Product Manager Andrew Schnorr has announced today that the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector's will include tons of extra content on PS3!
Below are the details, to quote: Back on August 30, 1987, Capcom released Street Fighter in arcades, which seemed relatively innocuous until you gave it a second look.
The graphics were average for the time, the voice acting was quite muffled, and the controls were strict and unforgiving. You could normally only choose a single character - a redheaded, red-shoed martial artist named Ryu - unless a second player came on, in which case they could play a blonde clone named Ken.
Most people who play it would agree that it's not the best game in the series, but there were people who saw its potential, and decided to continue the franchise with Street Fighter II. With that, one of the video games' biggest icons stepped into the spotlight.
Over the past 25 years, Street Fighter has worked itself up from humble beginnings in the arcade to being a cultural phenomenon throughout the world. Millions of people interact with it every day, in a myriad of ways.
In all truth, the fans define the franchise as much as the games. And it was these people who inspired the creation of the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector's...
84w ago - Today Community Manager Ross Brierley at Ghostlight has announced that they will be releasing Fate / Extra for Sony's PlayStation Portable handheld video game console with details below.
To quote: Today I'm here to talk to you about Ghostlight's latest JRPG release, Fate/EXTRA.
Developed by Imagepooch and TYPE-MOON, Fate/EXTRA is an epic PSP title set in a parallel universe to that of the hugely popular Japanese visual novel Fate/Stay Night.
At first glance, Fate/EXTRA appears to be set inside a Japanese high school. However, it soon becomes clear that something far stranger is at work, as the school itself is in fact an elaborate computer simulation designed as a battleground in the fight for the Holy Grail, a powerful artefact which will grant the victor's desire.
The students themselves are either mages seeking the grail, or merely NPCs created to ensure the smooth running of the tournament.
Summoning legendary heroes from the depths of the past (called 'Servants') to battle alongside them, the mages must battle each other to be the one to claim the Grail. But the stakes are high and only death awaits those who fall in battle.
Fate/EXTRA also features a truly original battle system, which, despite being simple to learn, has real depth...
109w ago - Aksys Games Director of Production Frank "Bo" DeWindt has announced that Fate / Extra hits the Sony PSP and PSPgo handheld consoles today.
To quote: Fate. Destiny. A pre-destined future. Call it what you will, but fans of the highly successful Type-Moon franchise will come flocking at the mere mention of the word.
To those not quite as familiar with the Fate series or all things Type-Moon, we'd like to present to you an excellent entry point into the universe in the form of the exclusive PSP title Fate/EXTRA!
In this role-playing game you'll assume the role of a male or female protagonist as you pair up with one of three mystical and mysterious servants to aide you on your quest.
Saber: A class known for its well-balanced abilities and its superior swordsmanship. While Saber may be short in stature at a diminutive 4'9", her strength and skill with a sword make her worthy of the Saber-class designation.
Archer: A class that specializes in the use of ranged weapons such as bows. An enigmatic warrior clad in a scarlet coat who possesses the ability to excel at weapons other than the bow...
Caster: A class that excels at magic-based combat due to their superior intelligence, though at the cost of being woefully inadequate...
