146w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has unveiled the video trailer today for Arcade Hits: Shienryu which is hitting PlayStation Network.

To quote: Well, the Import Section is now up and running. We hope you've had a taste and are looking for more Japanese fun.

Our next game from the land of the rising yen is Arcade Hits: Shienryu. Shooter fans will have a blast with this emphatic display of early bullet hell.

The game happens to be one of our office favorites so I can tell you that you'll be satisfied and rewarded by such shooting splendor.

Arcade Hits: Shienryu is the kind of shooter that exemplified the class of firepower that came out of the great shoot'em-up era in Japan.

If your eyes could bleed they would after an intense hour with Shienryu. Sure, there were bigger hits in the era, but Shienryu is a standout for its outstanding attention to detail and silky-smooth controls.

Allow yourself to immerse in the cockpit of your tactical fighter and watch the full trajectory of shrapnel after you blast it into a thousand pieces.





MonkeyPaw will continue to bring you closer to your Japanese gaming roots. We want to deliver all those lost classics...

147w ago - Today Producer/Studio Head Sian Yue Tan has confirmed alongside sharing a video trailer that Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken will be hitting PSN on October 18, 2011.

To quote: With our first post in July, we introduced you to our upcoming title Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, and for our second post in September, we touched a bit on the genesis and character design of the Rocketbirds. In this third post, we wanted to talk a bit about the cutscenes and music videos we created for the game.

But first, here is the preview trailer of the game!

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken takes you on a cinematic platform adventure through Albatropolis, as you hunt down the Penguin's corrupt leader, Putzki. Along the way you'll have to kill many penguins, solve puzzles, incite revolution, and maybe pilot a few jetpacks.





Originally, for Rocketbirds: Revolution! (the Independent Games Festival 2010 triple finalist browser game) we created the first opening sequence ('Robot' music video) as a way to keep people interested while the first game assets were being streamed to people's computers.

When we'd completed it, it worked well to bridge the waiting time (it's a lot more entertaining than watching a download status bar), but...
 

Dark Souls Hits PlayStation 3 Today, Meet Its Darkest Demons

50°
147w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has revealed some of the darkest demons in Dark Souls, which will officially be hitting the PlayStation 3 entertainment system today!

To quote: "All the monsters I design, from Demon's Souls to Dark Souls, are beautiful to me no matter how gruesome their appearance."

Dark Souls Director Hidetaka Miyazaki shared this bit of insight with me earlier this year in an interview and the quote has bounced through my brain for more than six months.

Since then, I've been wanting to get a closer look at the game's stunning creature designs, all of which are plucked from the further reaches of Miyazaki's fevered imagination.

Luckily, today's the day. For the viewing pleasure of readers, From Software and Namco Bandai have collected a host of rare concept artwork accompanied by design notes from Miyazaki himself. Miyazaki also wanted to pass along a greeting just for readers:

"I am hoping all of you experience meaningful deaths many times in the game. I know that the game is challenging, but I want you to keep trying to overcome any difficulty you face in the game. And please feel a great sense of achievement when overcoming a difficulty!"

Read on for the full gallery. If you do pick up Dark Souls, keep...

148w ago - Today Square Eniz Product Manager Charles McCarter has confirmed that Chrono Trigger will be hitting PSN on October 4, 2011 in North America.

To quote: What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words "[Register or Login to view links]?" I'm sure a lot of things, but I bet the first thing on your mind right now is "When can I get it?"

We're happy to confirm that Chrono Trigger is coming to the PSN in North America on October 4th. That's right- in just a few days, you'll be able to visit (or re-visit, as I'm sure is the case for many of you) one of the most hilarious and unique casts of characters ever assembled in an RPG:

Crono: The spiky-haired, stoic protagonist who finds himself wrapped up in events beyond his control. He's pretty good with a katana and doesn't run from a fight.

Marle: The requisite princess, but she's no ordinary princess. How many princesses do you know that wield a crossbow?

Lucca: Chrono's best friend since they were little kids. Oh, and she's a supergenius who invents things such as the teleporter that starts your journey through time.

Frog: A knight from the middle ages, Frog is a man who has been cursed and turned into a giant anthropomorphic...
