Welcome to another edition of News GaiDen, where you can get all of this week’s game news in one place here on Gaijin Densetsu!  This week we’ve got PS4 news, prinnies, Mode 7 and more!

Sony Announces PS4

Source: PS4 Official Site

Christian:  Sony announced their new console at their New York City meeting this past Wednesday, ditching the ‘Orbis’ code-name and settling on the predictable PS4.  They detailed a surprising number of console features, including remote play via the PS Vita, the new Dual Shock 4 controller’s share button and social features, video streaming, downloadable game streaming via Gaikai, and my favorite new feature: a suspend/resume function.  I know, I know, I’m easy to please, but honestly if none of these other things wind up working properly out of the box we can at least be certain that Sony will get the suspend/resume function right.  They didn’t show the actual hardware, but rest assured it’ll probably be a black rectangle.  Sony also revealed a few games, but nothing really jumped out at me.  The new games included a Killzone title, Jonathan Blow’s game The Wintness, Drive Club, Watch Dogs, a new IP from Marble Madness designer Mark Cerny called Knack, and a Dark Souls-esque game from Capcom code-named Deep Down.  The software looked pretty bland to me, but obviously they needed to tailor this event to a wide audeince.  Square Enix did show something at the meeting, but it was an old concept movie they showed months ago, and they could only say they would announce a game at E3.  Oh, Blizzard was also there, and they announced Diablo III for PS3 and PS4.  So yeah, look for an old game nobody cares about anymore from Blizzard on the PS4.   Check out the full 2-hour video to catch up on all the announcements in detail.

Playstation Plus Membership Updates

Source: Official US Playstation Blog

Christian:  In somewhat less exciting Sony news, there are new free games for US Playstation Plus members available this week on PSN.  The highlight is definitely Platinum Games’ Vanquish, which is a solid title especially at this price (i.e. FREE).  I’ve been playing Platinum’s new release, Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance, and there are definite parallels between the way Raiden handles in this game and the way the protagonist’s robot suit in Vanquish felt.  New games get added to PS Plus all the time, and you retain access to them for as long as you maintain the membership, so it’s definitely a good value at $50 a year.  As a bonus, you can get 3 free months of service if you sign up before March 4th.

F-Zero Comes to Wii U Virtual Console, $0.30 For 30 Days

Source: Nintendo

Christian:  The second game in the 30th Famicom Anniversary promotion for the Wii U virtual console is now available through the eShop.  It’s the futuristic racing classic F-Zero.   If you have an appetite for $0.30 games, crazy bumper-car handling, or gratuitous use of Mode 7 scaling and rotation, this is the game for you!  Local multiplayer is oddly absent in this virtual console release, but nonetheless, there’s no reason to skip on this deal.  What else are you going to play on your Wii U, anyway? (hint: see the next story)

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Demo Live On Wii U And 3DS eShops

Source: Capcom

Peter: Both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U versions of the Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate demo were released this week. I’ve never played any MonHun game before, but after playing this demo, I can say I’m definitely hooked. The demo offers two monsters to hunt, the overgrown koala-like Lagombi and the dragon/fish hybrid Plesioth. The full game comes out for both 3DS and Wii U March 14th.

NIS America Announces 3 New Titles For US Localization

Source: Joystiq

Christian:  NIS America is bringing 3 titles to the west this summer and fall.  They are strategy RPG Disgaea D2, roguelike The Guided Fate Paradox, and a JRPG called Time and Eternity.  I’ve dabbled a bit in the long-running Disgaea franchise, and while I mostly enjoyed the series unique aesthetics, I found the games to be a bit too wacky for me compared to others in the genre like Fire Emblem, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Tactics Ogre. Depending on what else is going on when this game comes out, I might dip my toes back in that pool to see how the water is.  The Guided Fate Paradox is being billed as the spiritual sequel to another oddly titled game, Zettai Hero Project: Unlosing Ranger Vs Darkdeath Evilman.  I played a bit of ZHP on the PSP, and while I enjoyed my time with it, I found it a bit too grindy and impenetrable.  Time and Eternity seems the most straight-laced of the bunch, and looks more like what you’d expect out of a traditional JRPG.  Check out NIS America’s Prinny Bomb for more info on these titles.

Animal Crossing New Leaf DLC: Kokuya Stationary

Source: Nintendo

Peter:Starting this week and going until mid-April, Tobidase Doubutsu no Mori (Animal Crossing:New Leaf in the west) and Japanese stationary company, Kokuya, have teamed up to offer free DLC based off their “Campus” line of stationary goods. In all, there will be 8 pieces of DLC free for download. The first item is a drawer shaped like a notebook.

Shin Megami Tensei IV Release Date And Limited Edition 3DS LL

Source: Ruliweb

Peter: The next game in the Shin Megami Tensei series has been given a release date of May 23rd. Along with the release date, a special Limited Edition white 3DSLL console featuring silhouettes of demons was also announced. With the way Nintendo has been releasing, or lack of releasing, their limited edition 3DSLL consoles outside of Japan, I highly doubt this one will be released anywhere else other than Japan.
