This is the first I personally have heard of this title and that makes me kind of sad. I enjoy a good game of chess here and there and the Hustle King devs (VooFoo Studios). Pure Chess will be available on the PS3 and the Vita and will support online cross play between both versions. Hopefully they will offer some very nice set pieces and some advanced strategies.
There have been some rumors about Dragon’s Crown, Vanillaware’s popular title that was due for release on the PS3 and Vita in “Spring”. There should be an official update on the title any day but it looks like that it will at the very least, miss its Spring launch window.
Dokura is developed by GungHo and Published by Gamearts. It is a side scrolling strategy game where you play as Dokura (means skull in Japanese) who is the guardian of the demon world and whose job is the watch the Princess. Seeing the Princess cry evokes a strange sensation in him. He wants to see the Princess returned home so he attempts to lead the Princess to the tower exit.
Playing as Dokuro, you will lead the Princess through the tower attempting to disarm and by pass traps and other problems along the way. Dokuro can transform into a couple of different classes if you will, to allow him to carry out different duties. In Dokuro’s ghoulish form, you have the ability to double jump. If he changes to Hero form, he is capable of carrying the princess.
Originally released as UnchainBlades ReXX in Japan last summer and developed by FuRyu, Unchained Blades is a role-playing game set in a monster-filled world, and was directed by Toshio Akashi of the Lunar series, while the game’s story was penned by Grandia series veteran Takashi Hino.
“We at XSEED Games are delighted with the opportunity to bring a title like Unchained Blades to North American gamers,” said Ken Berry, Director of Publishing at XSEED Games. “Unchained Blades represents a collaboration between some of Japan’s most high-profile developers and artists, offering a unique blend of classic RPG gameplay paired with an eclectic mix of art styles.”
We’ll be able to get the game later in the year, as a digital-only release (as was the case with their last PSP release, Corpse Party) to enjoy either on PSP, PSP GO or Vita. I’ll be sure to let you know about the release date and price as soon as they tell me about it!
Rockstar Games just released the first video in a special two-part series unveiling Max Payne 3 Multiplayer. I must say, it looks pretty good. What do you think?
“In the video above, see how Max Payne 3 Multiplayer brings the franchise’s combination of highly responsive and cinematic shooting action to the realm of online multiplayer across a range of game modes, the implementation of Max’s signature Bullet Time special ability and how we utilized the third-person perspective – allowing players to connect with a character they can see while still retaining full fluid control during gunplay.”
Stay tuned, as Rockstar has promised to release more goodies in the next couple days.
