Video: One Piece: Pirate Warriors is Brawling Exclusively on PS3

136w ago - Sony Correspondent Andy Burt has shared some video footage below today of One Piece: Pirate Warriors which will be brawling exclusively on the PS3 entertainment system later this year.

To quote: "One Piece" is a household name in Japan, where the mangas and anime series are among the most popular series of all time.

The series follows Monkey D. Luffy, a seafaring pirate in search of treasure on the high seas, who possesses the strange ability to stretch his limbs to cartoonish lengths after eating a mysterious fruit.

While only a handful of the games created in the One Piece universe have seen releases Stateside, the release of PS3-exclusive One Piece: Pirate Warriors sees the series return to the US.

I recently went hands-on with a Japanese build of the game at Namco Bandai's Gamers Day, checking out Pirate Warriors' brawler-based gameplay and over-the-top anime antics.





Pirate Warriors embraces the combat stylings of the Dynasty Warriors series, pitting series protagonist Monkey and a number of other playable characters against wave upon wave of enemies; the playable demo Namco had on-hand showed off the impressive number of enemies the game can display at any given time.

136w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator Ryan Phillips has revealed today that the Atelier Trilogy concludes with Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland on May 22nd for PlayStation 3 fans.

To quote: Howdy everyone! Ryan from NIS America here, dropping by to talk about our upcoming PS3-exclusive title [Register or Login to view links]!

Due out May 22nd in North America, this is the final game in the Atelier Arland trilogy and we are super excited for its US debut.

For those new to the Atelier series, they are RPG games that revolve heavily around adventuring and using alchemy to synthesize items, weapons, and armor.

In order to make items with alchemy, you will be out leveling up your characters and gathering materials in various areas. Although Atelier Meruru is the third title in the Arland trilogy, the story itself is independent from the previous two titles, so you can totally pick it up and enjoy it without having previous knowledge of the backstory.

For those who have played the other two Arland games, you can definitely look forward to seeing familiar characters from the previous two titles!

Video: Resistance: Burning Skies PS Vita Multiplayer Brings the Pain

136w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has made available some new video footage today spotlighting multiplayer action in Resistance: Burning Skies for the PS Vita console.

To quote: If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, come by our community meetup [Register or Login to view links] to go hands-on with Resistance: Burning Skies in a kill-or-be-killed multiplayer tournament!

If it's true that a shooter is only as good as its weapons, Resistance: Burning Skies is shaping up to be a delight indeed.

Take the Mule, a new double-barreled shotgun that dishes out devastating buckshot blasts and launches explosive bolts via its over-barrel crossbow. Or the ever-popular Auger, whose projectiles hungrily chew through walls to seek out warm flesh.

But my favorite gun so far is the lethal Hunter rifle, a long-range Chimeran burst-fire weapon with the ability to deploy an attack drone that you can guide towards your multiplayer foes with taps on the front touchscreen - tres sophisticated!





Playing a series of Wifi multiplayer matches in Resistance: Burning Skies in New York City last week was a valuable reminder that shooting ultra-powerful weapons just feels...

136w ago - Today Sony game creator Shawn McGrath has revealed the secrets of PSN's Dyad to fans as part of a new video trailer below.

To quote: Last week in New York City I was fortunate enough to show off Dyad, the almost-ready-done-really-soon-I-promise game coming to PSN for PS3. During our NYC showcase, the crew was kind enough to stop by and conduct a quick Q&A and gameplay session, and you can watch the results in this new original video.

Each of the game's 27 different levels touch upon a variety of mechanics and goals: forming long combos, racing, surviving as long as possible, hitting certain top speeds and more.

And the game's 26 special Trophy levels have challenging alternate goals, whether it's playing just by using sound or collecting objects as quickly as possible.

Since each level has a corresponding leaderboard to track online rankings, Dyad boasts a huge number of leaderboards - 52 in all, each requiring a unique set of skills to master.





I also wanted to mention that David Kanaga did the game's interactive music. Here's his [Register or Login to view links], and you can hear more of his interactive music [Register or Login to view links].
