Ubisoft Shares Details on Rayman Origins for PlayStation Vita

100°
131w ago - Today PR Specialist Alex Monney at Ubisoft has shared details with fans on Rayman Origins for the PlayStation Vita handheld console.

To quote: Last year, Rayman Origins was released on PS3 to critical acclaim. On February 14, Rayman and his friends return to PS Vita! Even better, the beauty and frantic gameplay of the PS3 will make the transition to PS Vita fully intact.

You'll play as Rayman, Globox or the Teensies as they speed through stages on a mission to free the Glade of Dreams from the Darktoons.

Rayman Origins offers a playful hand-drawn art style and accessible platforming gameplay, and completionists will find a challenge in gathering all the Electoons and skull teeth. In short, Rayman Origins will deliver entertainment to the new comers and veterans of the platforming genre.

We also have some great PS Vita-specific features available for Rayman Origins. First, for those looking to really appreciate all the hand-drawn art of Rayman Origins, players can pinch the front touchscreen to zoom in, so you can better appreciate the detailed character and level design that our studio in Montpellier worked so hard to deliver.

Playing with a zoomed-in camera view also delivers a new experience and is critical in discovering the game's many hidden secrets.

131w ago - Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui has shared some video footage today of Armored Core V prepping the PS3 community for some deep multiplayer action below!

To quote: [Register or Login to view links], developer of last fall's critically acclaimed Action-RPG Dark Souls, has been spreading bullets from mech-to-mech for nearly 15 years since the very first Armored Core premiered on the PSone back in 1997.

So needless to say, when it comes to intense metal-shredding action and hardcore strategy, the team at FromSoftware knows what they're doing... but will you?

[Register or Login to view links] hits consoles across North America on March 20th, and when it does, we at [Register or Login to view links] want everyone up to be up to speed on all of the ins and outs on what it will take to survive while piloting the Armored Cores (or "ACs") in the dusty, shrapnel-laden world full of limitless online gameplay possibilities.

I've been learning more and more from the team about Armored Core V over the last few months between bouts in [Register or Login to view links], and the sheer level of detail and customization here has put my jaw on the...
 

Atlus Announces Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time Heading to PSP

100°
131w ago - Today Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced that Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time is officially heading to the PSP.

To quote: It's been years since the last Growlanser game, dearest members of the Blog of PlayStation ([Register or Login to view links], for those of you playing "PlayStation Blog: The At-Home Edition," was released for PS2 back in 2007).

Even before that, hardcore RPG fans have been clamoring for the fourth entry, one of their favorites in the series, to make its way to North America. Now, there are always factors for games released in Japan to either never come or come much, much later to US shores. This was one of those cases where hope seemed quite faint.

Just this past week, those hopes were given a prescription-strength injection of horse steroids as Atlus (that's us) officially announced Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time, the enhanced PSP version of the long-beloved and much-requested fourth chapter in the popular series of RPGs, for release this summer in North America.

Let's tune out all those exclamations of shock that ATLUS is releasing a PSP game in 2012 (because it isn't going to be the only one) and get to the heart of the matter: telling you everything you need...
