About Us

At Kotaku Australia, we’re carefully trying to build a reputation for creating the strongest, most engaging content surrounding games and gaming culture.

We cover the Australian gaming industry with a team of award-winning local journalists, and localise the best posts from the US, making sure to eliminate what’s irrelevant for Aussies. If you want to access the US site, you can go to us.kotaku.com.

Our coverage is sorted into eight main categories – PC, Xbox, PlayStation, News, Nintendo, Mobile, Retro, and In Real Life.

All stories are tagged so they’re easy to browse and locate.
