Bloodborne, a collaboration between From Software and Sony Japan Studio, finally has a release date. Announced as part of Sony’s Tokyo Game Show lineup, the PS4 exclusive will be available on February 6, 2015. But wait, there’s more.
Sony also released a brand new gameplay trailer for Bloodborne, “The Hunt Begins,” which is embedded above. And the publisher confirmed that a Collector’s Edition of the “gothic horror” game is now available for pre-order. Priced at $79.99, the Collector’s Edition includes a Premium Art Book packed with concept art and a code for a Digital Soundtrack. Both items, along with the game, will be packaged in a SteelBook Case.
You can also find a few new screenshots over at the PlayStation Blog.
Surprise! Swery65, the demented genius behind the equally demented Deadly Premonition has unleashed the first two episodes (and a prologue) of D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die on the Xbox Games Store. The Xbox One murder mystery uses a striking cel-shaded art style and features another dose of the developer’s trademark sense of humor. Also available on the Xbox One Store today is Flockers, a Lemmings-like puzzler from Team17 (the creators of Worms).
Xbox 360 owners can finally download the Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition beginning today. The $39.99 package includes both the original game and the Reaper of Souls expansion pack.
More details on all three games can be found after the break. (more…)
Square Enix showed a trailer for Final Fantasy XV yesterday at the Tokyo Game Show and… what is happening, are they driving a car? The prince is sleeping? What am I even watching? I don’t even know what’s going on, and I’m still excited anyway. The game will be released for PS4 and Xbox One, and while there’s no release date, there will be a playable demo packaged with Final Fantasy Type-0 when it comes out on March 17, 2015.
Square Enix also announced that director Tetsuya Nomura will be replaced by Hajime Tabata, allowing Nomura to “focus his full efforts as the director of other highly anticipated titles, including Kingdom Hearts III.” That’s a lot of serious announcements for one day. Thanks, Square Enix!
D3 Publisher unveiled a new trailer for Earth Defense Force 2025: The Shadow of New Despair at the Tokyo Game Show today. Best of all, this trailer gives us our first glimpse at “The New Despair,” a massive Godzilla-like creature with glowing blue plates all over his body. Thankfully, the EDF has a counter weapon in the form of a towering mecha that looks like something out of The Transformers. If you’re a fan of the franchise, I strongly suggest you make time to check out this new trailer.
The PS4 upgrade of the bug-hunting favorite is currently on track for a 2015 release in Japan. Hopefully, an American release will be announced soon.
It’s a 3DS bonanza this week in the Nintendo Download.
Square Enix has released Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call, the sequel to their fan favorite Final Fantasy rhythm game. Bigger in every way, Curtain Call includes “221 songs and more than 60 characters” to tap away the hours. Another big sequel available this week is Majesco’s Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit. The fifth helping of Cooking Mama includes more than 60 recipes. And finally, EA Sports has confirmed that FIFA 15 will be available to download through the 3DS eShop on Tuesday, September 23.
Of course, the real big news this week is that the Super Smash Bros. For 3DS demo will be available to all beginning tomorrow. Just in case you were on the fence, Nintendo’s got you covered.
More information on all of these titles (including a few more and a trio of new downloadable games for the Wii U) can be found after the break. (more…)

The story in Capcom’s Deep Down will bounce back and forth between the glossy future of 2094 and the demonic catacombs of 1494. But how these two time periods relate to each other is still a big mystery.
The PS4 game’s later trailer, released to coincide with the Tokyo Game Show, doesn’t give us any new hints, but it does give us another look at one of 2015’s most intriguing games.
Square Enix has announced they will release Final Fantasy Type-0 HD in the US on March 17, 2015. Are you still a little shaky on what Type-0 HD entails? Square Enix has helpfully provided this description for the PS4/Xbox One title:
Step into the fray as Class Zero, a group of fourteen students from an elite military academy whose country is attacked by an aggressive neighboring Empire. Using the powerful abilities and magic of all fourteen characters in fast-paced action RPG combat, players must face the brutality and injustices of war to uncover the secrets of its genesis.
As a further incentive to entice fans to take a chance on their latest Final Fantasy spinoff, Square Enix will include a Final Fantasy XV demo download code inside each copy of Type-0 HD.
Type-0 HD has undergone quite a few changes in its odyssey towards America. Originally announced as Final Fantasy Agito XIII, it began life as a PSP entry in Square Enix’s “Fabula Nova Crystallis” franchise. After a name change, it was released in Japan in 2011. Owing to its handheld roots, Type-0 was initially rumored to move to the Vita before Square Enix announced the PS4/Xbox One port at this year’s E3 Expo.
So four years later (and nine since its initial announcement), we’ll get a chance to see what the fuss is about.
