Sword Art Online, Now With Flying

Japan’s popular series about life inside video games is getting another game. It lets you fly. Sword Art Online is a story with multiple arcs, perhaps the most famous being its initial story involving a game of death where players are trapped inside an MMO and dying in the game means dying in real life.


Smash Bros. Creator Explains How Characters Get On The Roster

The Super Smash Bros. series has always had a wide variety of characters to choose from, and the roster for the latest Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is no different. So how did the series creator, Masahiro Sakurai, choose who would be in it?


Take A Look At The First New Star Wars Arcade Game In Years

The best part of the Star Wars arcade games of yore was how they transported you into the movies, letting you be the one destroying the Death Star and defeating the Empire. A new bunch of Star Wars machines are going to do the same thing for today’s audiences, starting next January.


The Latest Dragon Ball Game Has Something In Common With Its MMO

Dragon Ball Xenoverse allows players to create their own original player character to take part in the history of Dragon Ball. It’s a fan’s dream, sure, but there’s something familiar about it.


'Xenosaga HD Collection' Is Actually A Thing That Could Happen

Today in Things I Never Thought Were Actually Possible, Bandai Namco producer Katsuhiro Harada proposed to fans that maybe, just maybe, a Xenosaga HD Collection could happen.

Dark Souls 2 Could Redeem Its Lore Through DLC

There were three games that had a chance at being my GOTY. Dark Souls 2 (of course), Trials Fusion, and The Witcher 3. With the Witcher delayed, and Trials being a tad disappointing for me, the ol’ Dark Trolls has it pretty much wrapped up. But it ain’t perfect — and with the second of three DLC packs released today, my fingers are crossed the extra content will plug some of the holes in the lore.


Surprise! That Mysterious New Dragon Ball Character Is You

What a dirty trick to play, Bandai Namco. Introducing a never-before-seen character for Dragon Ball Xenoverse, leaving fans to wildly speculate for months before revealing it as the first Dragon Ball game that allows players to inject their own creations into the series’ greatest battles. So sneaky. So good.


New Digimon Game Gives Fans A Taste Of Super Smash Bros.

Despite its loyal fanbase, Digimon has long played second fiddle to Pokémon. Tired of having all their digital monsters left out of the party that is Super Smash Bros. in favour of the company’s more recognisable characters like Pac-Man, Bandai Namco announced today that it’s making its own multiplayer arena brawler.


Pac-Man Almost Got Into Super Smash Bros. Brawl

The next Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, will be featuring newcomers like Mega Man, the Wii-fit exercise instructor, and the latest announcement from E3, Pac-Man. But, much like the newly announced Mii Warrior, this wasn’t the first opportunity for him to join the Smash Bros. cast.
