If you're an Overwatch player capable of pulling off pro strats such as switching characters when the moment calls for it, you're probably perplexed by Hanzo mains, who stick by their limited hero of choice at all costs.

This weekend held many different events in some of the biggest esports, from League of Legends and Street Fighter to Call of Duty. In a small arcade tucked away in Akihabara, Japan, however, players were duking it out in some of the best bouts I've seen all weekend, in a language I don't understand and a game I hadn't heard of until this morning.
You can love a good old-fashioned video game manual for any number of reasons. It might be enormous, like Falcon 3.0s, or slightly crazy, like Star Wars'. Rarely, though, are they genuinely beautiful.
When it comes to Japanese developers, creating crazy, nice games isn't the only thing they're good at; they also design characters with pumped-to-the-max muscles, half of which don't even exist in real life and have the size of a truck.

Jump Festa is a yearly event hosted by Shueisha, the publishers of Jump line of comics, where Jump-related paraphernalia and games are put on display as well as stage events and announcements.

Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 was announced at E3 with little more than a trailer and fan speculation. Now, Tecmo Koei has released new information on the sequel to Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage.
Fist of the North Star's Kenshiro got a life-size statue last year. It was covered in 500,000 Swarovski crystals, apparently worth ¥10,000,000 or $130,000.
When Tecmo Koei brings Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage (née Hokuto Musou) to North America this spring, it will be more gore-soaked than ever before. But it will keep one important aspect of its Japanese release.
