Been thinking about grabbing a Vita, but you’re not into the portable gaming idea? Well good news. Sony’s heeded your calls, and you shall be rewarded. The Playstation Vita TV console is set to release in Japan November 14, and should deliver a pretty solid experience.
The system has a Vita card slot and a slot for memory cards, so you can still play downloaded games from the OG Playstation, PSP games, and of course, the Vita library. The PS Vita TV console will also be able to remote play PS4 games, and supports two DualShock 3 controllers.
Other things to look out for include: mulitplayer, standby mode, a web browser, email, voice and chat (read: new way to talk trash on PSN), and apps like Hulu and the like.
Price points will be about $100 for the the stand alone, or about $143 for a bundle that hits you with a DualShock3 controller and an 8GB memory card.
Enjoy kids! Or, you know, wait until it hits the North American market. Whichever.
We’re pro-choice over here.
Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers will feature a downloadable Gold Saint Aries Shion bonus character, for the Japanese release coming up this October. You can check this bloke out below.
Brave Soldiers will feature more than 50 usable characters that you can customize to your heart’s content, and online play. The plot will follow the Sanctuary, Poseidon, and Hades arcs and is set to drop October 17 in Japan. Gamers can find it on the PSN Playstation 3 network on November 26 for the North American market.
The October release will offer a Pegasus box, which will include the game, a Pegasus Seiya figure sporting the classic Pegasus cloth costume, and a code unlocking the corresponding costume in the game. The box is priced at ¥13,480 ($135).
This release should be a good one. Tell all of your friends. Or, you could just be a little greedy guy and keep all the fun for yourself. We don’t judge here at Animeism. It’s just that kind of party.
One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is now available in North America and Latin America. Check out the trailer below:
The Americas tend to get things a little bit late in comparison to the Asian and European releases, but this one should be worth the idle thumb twiddling. You can download it on the playstation network for $49.99, or kop the hardcopy if that’s your bag.
That’s right kiddies, go HAM on the high seas. Pirate king is no small feat, after all.
Came across this Japanese horse racing game that I simply could not avoid putting online. Funny guys, Hightower and AxialMatt, take a look at a 100% accurate recreation of horse racing in Japan.
This has anime humor written all over it:
Killer Instinct is coming at you with a new group of characters to unlock – the lastest being Sadira. Sadira, according to sources, is the first female character to be released on this platform, and the first original character to this platform.
Expect eight characters to be released in total. Each can be purchased for $5, aside from Jago who will be free of charge, or you can swing the whole lot for $20. Six will be included upon the game’s release. The next tier (Ultra Edition) comes in at $40, and will give you all eight characters, an accessory pack or two, costumes, and an arcade version of the original Killer Instinct.
Almost makes me want to dig out my 64 bits of fun, and whip some tail.
You might end up like one of these poor souls, getting laughed at world wide. Because, Chun Li won’t tolerate this sh*t
Turns out, you’ll be able to find Bills, Broly, Buu and Cell amongst the lineup of villains coming your way in the newest installment in the Dragon Ball Z line of games.
The Japanese release date now appears to be in 2014, after initial hints of winter 2013. That will probably push word on the North American/European releases.
Let’s be honest. It’s going to be bomb.
The PS4 will be released on the 15th of November. After announcing price cuts for the PS3 and PlayStation Vita, Sony announced the PS4′s release date. Although the X Box One has no release date the system is expected after the release of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag on Nov. 19.
