105w ago - Community Manager Kellie Parker at Sega of America has unveiled the characters today in the new Yakuza: Dead Souls video trailer below.
To quote: You may have heard that Yakuza: Dead Souls is coming to PlayStation 3 in March 2012. Like Yakuza 4, the game will let you play as four characters, including two never-before-played fan favorites: Goro Majima and Ryuji Goda. It's a Yakuza experience like none other, because this time, you'll be fighting a horde of blood-thirsty zombies.
The undead are multiplying and filling the streets of Tokyo's red light district. The area is quarantined quickly, but degenerates into a district full of terror, panic and devastation. Survivors try to flee the city, but four men rise up to protect those they care most about. If you think zombies are bad, meet the Yakuza.
Playable for the first time in Yakuza: Dead Souls, Goro Majima is nuts about zombie movies. He's so excited to be killing off zombies that when you're playing as Majima, you'll be picking fights with zombies, instead of just merely defending yourself. Now that's badass.
You probably thought Ryuji Goda was dead after Yakuza 2. But you'd be wrong, and not because he's a reanimated zombie back to munch your...
121w ago - D3Publisher Assistant Producer Miki Takahashi has introduced some of the new characters today in the upcoming White Knight Chronicles II title for PlayStation 3.
To quote: I wanted to give you a brief outline of the story and characters of White Knight Chronicles ll, which will hit U.S. PS3s this fall.
The original game "White Knight Chronicles: International Edition" (included with WKCII) began with the day of Princess Cisna's coming-of-age banquet in the Kingdom of Balandor.
When the ceremony is suddenly raided by a mysterious organization called Magi, young winemaker apprentice Leonard lead the princess to safety in the castle cellars, where he found a legendary weapon called the Incorruptus.
Leonard gains the knightly powers of the Incorruptus and sets out on a journey to save Princess Cisna with his friends: Yulie, Leonard's childhood friend; Eldore, an old but skilled warrior; and Caesar, the son of the ruler of Greede.
However, the journey to rescue Princess Cisna became a harsh one. They overcame many challenges before Leonard and his friends came to realize that they had gotten caught up in a war that had been raging since ancient times – the Dogma Wars, a brutal battle that begin 10,000 years ago across the entire continent. And they may have...
124w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a video today featuring Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon speaking on Freddy Krueger in the PlayStation 3 title along with the secret origins of the PS3 DLC characters.
To quote: In discussing the news, Boon shed light on the long, sometimes tangled genesis of Mortal's Kombat's other DLC characters - namely Rain, Skarlet, and Kenshi.
One began as a joke, one was an incorrect rumor, and one... well, you'll see.
Look for Freddy to hit PSN on August 9th for $4.99, and read on for my full chat with Ed Boon.
PlayStation.Blog: So what is the inspiration for bringing Freddy Krueger to Mortal Kombat as a DLC character?
Ed Boon, Creative Director, Netherrealm Studios: It was a number of things. It's kind of hard to choose a character who would fit well into the Mortal Kombat universe, with the blood and violence that's so associated with it. Kratos from God of War is a brutal, bloody character, so he makes sense.
When we had the discussions about the DLC characters, we knew that we wanted to add a returning character, a new character, but also a guest character....
