Whoa! What’s this? Kotaku US has a new layout today, one designed to emphasise the wide range of coverage our team brings to you every day. Our new layout showcases the day’s biggest stories up top and spotlights key topics, stories, videos, reviews, and features all the way down the page. Scroll down and check it out.

Editor’s Note: This article is about Kotaku U.S. 

We hope some of you will love this, but I know that many of our most loyal readers like to visit Kotaku several times a day and want to know what’s new, by the minute. For those readers, I want to direct you to two things: 1) The “Latest” column a little ways down the page, which will always show our newest posts. 2) A new URL: kotaku.com/latest that will give you the reverse-chronological Kotaku feed that readers have been familiar with for years.

Our new layout is highly customisable, and we’ll be tweaking it in the days and weeks to come as we learn what works best. For now, you’ll see blocks that showcase major news events, blocks that highlight our posts of the best games, blocks featuring our newest cosplay and anime posts, and so much more. We saved a particularly fun block for the bottom. Want to see a block of posts that isn’t there? Let us know.


  • Looking forward to it, I’m really sick of all the ads. I just gave feed back on the gizmondo survey asking for this.

    • Yeah as someone who reads individual articles (I come here from my RSS feed) this is one of the worst designs. The way comments sit, unrelated videos autoplay…all designed to make you accidentally click ads. It makes me not want to click through Kotaku articles.

  • Why was this even posted to KotakuAU. It has no relevance to anything. Surely, if you could take the time to add an “Editor’s note” that it applies to the US site, that same editor could’ve just nixed this whole article.

  • I shall take this opportunity to once again say that I really liked comment upvotes and downvotes, and want them back!
