Hey there! You must be here because you love ice levels! And because you love The Speed Gamers! Did you know we’re having a Mario marathon on December 14th? We’re raising money for the Make A Wish Foundation! Tune in for some awesome games and sweet prizes, like handmade wooden item blocks and a Wii U Deluxe! Anyway, I figured we should start off this holiday right. If you’ve been watching TSG for the past 5 years, you might think you’re hardcore. You might think you know games. You might think you have what it takes to survive. But can you traverse invisible bridges? That’s right, the first ice level is the Crystal Caves, from Dark Souls!
As From Software goes from (no pun intended) Strength to Strength with the release of such hits as 3D Dot Game Heroes, Another Century Episode Portable and most notably of all: Demon’s Souls, it makes sense that the company would make a follow up to one of the best games on the PS3. After Dark Souls was announced, there has been a steady stream of info hinting at the new possibilities for the game. Well, curtosy of Japanese gaming website 4gamer, they posted an interview with the games director: Hidetaka Miyazaki who was also the creator of the original Demon’s Souls. Over the course of four pages, he talks about a wide variety of topics about the game such as its seemingly endless world, a 60 hour play time, redesgined weapon fortification system and possibilities for DLC. The interviewcan be found in the source for this article.
At this years Tokyo Game Show, From Software developer of the Otogi series and 3D Dot Game Heroes announced the spiritual sequel to their latest release: Demon’s Souls named Project Dark in Japan. For the overseas release of the Demon’s Souls sequel (Demon’s Souls itself did surprisingly well overseas especially in the UK), Namco Bandai (Who could be localising OTHER games from Japan though that’s a Tale for another day) trademarked Dark Rings and Crowns of the Dark as possible Engish speaking title’s. In all honesty, I thought Demon’s Souls was a pretty lame name although after seeing “Crowns of the Dark”, I may have to reconsider that.
If you have been curious to exactly what the story is for 3D Dot Game Heroes then look no further as this trailer gives you a short background of the games story. If you missed the announcement before, the title is coming to North America via Atlus on May 11th. at the budget price of $39.99 exclusively for the PlayStation 3. Unfortunately Europe doesn’t have a release confirmation yet, so we will just have to wait and see.
Atlus has announced that they will be localizing 3D Dot Game heroes, a 8-bit Zelda style action adventure game, for North America. The title will arrive on May 11th for the budget price of $39.99 in North America exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
You can check out the announcement image after the jump. It definitely does have “A HERO IS YOU” written across the top.
Quite possibly the only graphically impressive 8-bit style next gen title. It almost like watching a stop frame lego movie. It’s coming November 5th in Japan exclusively for the Playstation 3 . You can check out the Japanese website here.
