Atlus Co., Ltd. (Setagayaku Tokyo, Chief Executive Officer: Akira Nomoto) announced that following the launch of the critically acclaimed Persona 5 in North America and Europe, the game has shipped more than 1.5 million copies worldwide.

To celebrate the launch of the game, there will be a Persona live concert event on Aug. 2 at the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan. Please stay tuned for upcoming news on Persona 5 and the Persona series in the future!
Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high-schooler – attending class, after school activities and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self;” the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears.
Persona 5 is now available in the Americas and Europe, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. The game is rated M by the ESRB.
It is great to hear that Persona 5 has done so well. The game is amazing and deserves a large audience. Hopefully it will continue to sell well. Let us hope that the upcoming mainline Shin Megami Tensei game also sell well.

NetherRealm Studios and WB Games have released the fourth story trailer for Injustice 2. This one gives us a lot more context on what will happen and the overall plot, while also showing off some characters and the new divisions. I just hope they aren’t showing too much, and leave some surprises because the story mode does look interesting. Injustice 2 looks like a much bigger version of the first game, and it is exciting to see it come together. We will have a review around launch time.

No GravatarWB Games and NetherRealm Studios have released a new Injustice 2 trailer, this time to show off Captain Cold. The character seems to take a lot of influence from the Mortal Kombat series and Sub-Zero in particular, while also bringing some new mechanics to fighting games by NetherRealm Studios. Captain Cold shows just how much the game is shaking things up, and it is likely he will be a fan favourite, especially if the rumors are true that Mr. Freeze will be an alt. outfit for him.

 

Sworn to ending all crime, the Regime hunted down and brutally executed every member of the Rogues, including Captain Cold’s sister. Using his skills as a thief and his iconic Cold Gun, Cold now seeks his vengeance. He’ll gladly use the Society to achieve it.

See the trailer below.

Over The Moon’s The Fall Part 2: Unbound aims to bring the tradition of the mind-bending sci-fi classics to the Nintendo Switch

Releasing in 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac and Linux, indie developer Over the Moon Games, today announced that The Fall Part 2: Unbound will also be coming to Nintendo Switch.

Is Artificial Intelligence a Threat to Humanity?

Can it be Bound? What Binds You?

We’ve all heard the adage: the best science fiction stories are the ones that, while being great entertainment, also point to something more philosophical, inviting players (or readers, traditionally) to think. Over The Moon aims to join that fine tradition with their highly anticipated upcoming sequel, The Fall Part 2: Unbound, in which players take on the role of A.R.I.D, an abandoned and broken AI who struggles to survive a collapse in her operating parameters. ARID must re-establish her boundaries by attempting to build her own rules before a dark, mysterious, and invasive process snuffs her out for good.

 

How then, does ARID do this? Over The Moon draws inspiration from contemporary issues, says John Warner, The Fall’s director: “There’s a growing debate about the looming threat of artificial intelligence. Can we build an AI that serves us?  One that we can control?  Or at the very least, one that is psychologically healthy and isn’t a threat to us?  For that matter, what is ‘health’? Can it be defined for the sake of building an AI, and do humans even have a good definition for that? How do you know that you’re healthy?”  

The key, of course, is to keep the game exciting and fun, allowing gameplay to carry much of the story-telling. ARID will invade other robots in a desperate attempt to get their help, and will be forced to work within their personal quirks and operating parameters, creating an opportunity for a truly unique set of challenges. Furthermore, as ARID begins understanding her hosts on a deeper level, she will be able to take perceptual mechanics from one robot into another. Players will solve puzzles by perceiving the environment from different perspectives and comparing the information they find in creative ways… served up with a helping of The Fall’s signature dark humour.

 

“Having a robust way of perceiving the world is a pretty good starting point to talk about psychological health” says Warner, “And by making gameplay around these mechanics, we can explore a lot of fun ideas without being overly cerebral or choking the game with philosophical dialogue.”

 

But that’s just the start, according to the team at Over The Moon. The Fall Part 2: Unbound aims to put players in perspectives that they’ve never experienced in a video game before. With a host of unusual characters, it explores themes of artificial intelligence, the value of personal boundaries and respecting others. Its gameplay and its story are specifically designed to make players reflect on these ideas, through the lens of a familiar Metroidvania meets Point and Click Adventure framework. The Fall Part 2: Unbound is made for players who have been waiting for the conceptual underpinning of games to catch up with their technological artistry.

 

Releasing in 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac and Linux, The Fall Part 2: Unbound is a bold leap forward for video game storytelling

The fall was an amazing indie game that brought a lot of innovation to the table. Its next chapter will no doubt increase the scope of the story and make things more intriguing.

In Prey, you’re mankind’s last – and only – hope. With the Typhon threatening to destroy humanity, you’ll need every edge you can get in order to fight the invasion. Check out the newly released video from the archives of the TranStar Research Team’s Neuromod Division for a look at some of the astonishing new powers you can “install” as part of your arsenal – along with how the entire system works.

 

 

Never mind the improvements to the Neural Modifier (or “Neuromod” for short) – including “smaller insertion points” on the rapid release needles that you literally jab into your eye. The real innovation is what this device can actually do: alter your neural circuitry in very potent ways. This isn’t just about enhancing your human abilities – like boosting you strength, speed, hacking skills and more – but also acquiring unique abilities that have been learned from the hostile Typhon aliens aboard Talos I. Armed with your wits, weapons and a host of incredible powers, it’s up to you to stop the alien invasion and save all of humanity.

 

For even more insight on the powers you can wield in Prey, be sure to check out the recently released ‘Weapon and Power Combos’ and ‘Playing with Powers’ videos.

 

Set to launch worldwide on Friday, May 5, 2017 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, Prey is the highly-anticipated first-person sci-fi action game from Arkane Studios – creators of the award-winning Dishonored series which includes the 2012 ‘Game of the Year’ and the critically-acclaimed follow-up, Dishonored 2.

 

Prey has been rated M for mature by the ESRB. For more information about the game please visit prey.bethesda.net.

Prey looks to be one of the most innovative games Bethesda has released yet. This game just keep looking better and better. We hope to have a review up around launch.

WB Games and NetherRealm Studios have released a new Injustice 2 trailer. This one shows off villains Gorilla Grodd, Captain Cold, Bane and Scarecrow. Bane has gotten a redesign and Scarecrow legitimately looks like one of the best designed NetherRealm studios has ever come up with, and will no doubt be a popular pick for the game.

Injustice 2 is looking amazing and should be a blast to play. We will have a review up as soon as we can,

In Prey you’ll need more than just your wits to take on the Typhon aliens that are threatening to destroy mankind. But why stop with the weapons and gadgets you’ll find aboard Talos I? Mankind’s last – and only – hope, Morgan Yu, also has the option of “installing” a wide range of human and alien abilities. Get a look at some of the powers you can use against the deadly Typhon – along with exclusive insights from the team at Arkane Studios in our latest video titled ‘Playing with Powers’

 

Whether you focus on just human powers – allowing you to run faster, jump higher, use firearms better and more – or if you instead branch off into the myriad Typhon abilities, one thing’s certain: Prey offers players a wide range of ways to annihilate aliens. From Superthermal to Psychoshock and beyond, these powers will make all the difference in your mission to fight the aliens and save the world.

 

Be on the lookout tomorrow for a new video featuring fresh insight into Prey’s mind-altering Neruomod Division, and for more examples of how you can combine weapons and powers, be sure to check out yesterday’s ‘Power Combos’ video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Aro7eB53q8.
