Tetsuya Nomura Draws Final Fantasy Versus XIII's Noctis for Anniversary Pamphlet

Actually, you're right... I totally translated the first line wrong!

Hideo Kojima Writes "FOX and XOF" Then Heads to PAX

The only reason I posted this is because I hadn't seen the image behind the top image so I thought it might be a sneak image.

CESA Shares Preliminary Tokyo Game Show Stats

I switched PS2 to PS3.

I actually thought that they'd just forgotten to put the PS3 row, but it does make more sense for PS2 to not have so many games in 2012.

Direct Feed Layton 3DS Screenshots

I added a rough name translation. They'll probably call it something more clever when it sees release in English.

Project X Zone Screenshots


I love how pink the Sakura Wars screens are.

Metal Gear Rising: Japanese Language Trailer

Yeah, the timing of the video release (and the name) was suspicious.

It will probably be officially released on Thursday.

You're not missing much if you didn't see it -- it's really just the Gamescom trailer with Japanese voices. The song is the same.

Lightning Saga is not the Name of the New Final Fantasy XIII Game

He didn't actually refer to it as "game." It could still be anything.

Senran Kagura Butt Mouse Pad -- You Select the Butt!

They only ever provided a boob comparison -- no butt comparison.

PS Vita Atelier Totori Revealed in This Week's Dengeki PlayStation

It sounds like it's new outfits, new recipes, etc. -- stuff that could easily be offered as DLC for PS3.

Winning Eleven PSP, 3DS and Wii Dated

Not sure myself, as Konami has their baseball games on Vita now.

Maybe they're waiting for the system to reach a certain userbase worldwide first.

Tokyo Midtown is Dressed for Metal Gear's 25th Anniversary

Me too.

When I lived in Japan, I'd normally work at the Starbucks right next to these columns.

I am sad.

Lollipop Chainsaw Breaks Records for Grasshopper; Killer is Dead Trailer Debuts

I think they just showed a partial segment from a trailer that's in development.

Maybe it will be part of Tokyo Game Show?

Hatsune Miku On Your Desk... and Other Project Diva F Screenshots

Actually, I just realized that she's not on a table.

Yakuza 5 Battle Screens

Screens from the official site are tiny.

Sega will gradually release full res versions through the Japanese press.

Kadokawa's Project Discovery For PlayStation Vita Resurfaces

I added some additional details.

The project currently won't let you create your own novels, but it seems that creating a toolkit for players is the long term goal.

Initially, you'll just submit assets to Kadokawa.

Square Enix's Lord of Vermilion Ties Up With Legend of Heroes and Fantasy Earth Zero

It's almost done. I decided to finish my topic system first. The PM thing will come right after that. I'm still shooting for this week.

Square Enix's Lord of Vermilion Ties Up With Legend of Heroes and Fantasy Earth Zero

Hmm... the thing I'm using has been good about stopping them, but sometimes they get through. This one managed to post just one before I zapped him.

Neptune V Screenshots and Gameplay Details


I fixed the issue.

The Japanese articles are just links to Japanese sites. It will make more sense when I have my sweet new topic system live, hopefully before the big events next week.

Bravely Default Flying Fairy Packaging

Why does this game have such a high rating?

There must be some heavy themes in the story.
