A teaser trailer for Evangelion 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo was released…confirming a release date exactly one month from now on November 17th in theaters in Japan.
Two weeks from today is Dead or Alive 5! While there’s very little else to announce about the game before the release that hasn’t already been announced yet officially by Team Ninja, there is in fact one more character that hasn’t been officially revealed.
A few screens have surfaced before now, but there was recently a video featuring the new character, Mila in a scene in story mode as well as some gameplay featuring her. Her background seems to be that she’s a waitress with an MMA fighting style.
Granted the video’s subtitles and menus are in French, all of the dialogue is in English, so at least we can understand at least half of what’s going on. The game’s story mode is filled with bonus objectives that you can complete during the story which can be seen like a featured tutorial that helps the player learn the game kind of how Dead or Alive Dimensions had for the Nintendo 3DS, allowing players to learn the game while wasting little time delving into the game’s story mode. Completing these objectives gives you titles like Street Fighter IV or more notably Persona 4 Arena that you can call yourself for other players to see. The more challenges you complete, the more titles and hidden challenges you can unlock which in turn can give you even more titles to name yourself.
The game drops in two weeks on September 25th. Get ready to fight!
EDIT: Litterally the MINUTE I finished writing this, this video was launched!
Perhaps is was due to poor planning on the part of Team Ninja for revealing a new trailer for Dead or Alive 5 the day after Persona 4: Arena gets released, but this completely slipped past me. This trailer looks great, and reveals several characters we’ve been waiting to see announced for the game like Brad Wong and Helena.
And if that wasn’t enough to get you going, the official site finally opened the story page and offers details about all of the past Dead or Alive games and even this sweet relationship chart to see where everyone stands with each other. In just a little over a month from now, the game will be out, so watch the trailer and get hyped!
Looks like Namco is trying to prove to Tecmo that the characters in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 can look good in bikinis and swimsuits just like Tecmo’s characters in Dead or Alive. Only to take it a step further, it looks like the male cast of Tekken is participating as well. If you pre-order Tekken Tag Tournament 2, then you’ll get a bikini pack that comes with over 100 swimsuits you can use to customize your characters with.
To help promote the North American release of the show, Funimation has put up the first two episodes of Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt on Youtube. The episodes are available in English and as long as you sign into Youtube and prove you’re old enough to view mature content (or just have an account that says you’re old enough) then you can watch the entire episodes for free.
The DVD and Blu-Ray of the show is now available, so if you liked the episodes and wanted to watch more, then you can go online and buy the complete series of Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt for around $50.
Make sure you watch till the end…
Not too sure if I’d agree with this statement though…
I’m actually a bit behind on my DOA 5 Watch, but there is in fact some more news since I last updated. The E3 trailer for the game shows off more of the game as well, as new characters, Kokoro and Sarah Bryant from Virtua Fighter. On top of that, second build of the game was made available to the attendants at E3 and a tournament was held with the newer build which has seen several changes since the alpha demo was released for the people who pre-ordered Ninja Gaiden 3 (most notably the power moves and Hitomi’s face).
When interviewed about the game by video game news crews like IGN or Gamespot, the man representing Team Ninja and Tecmo Koei didn’t do a very good job at selling the game. At times he seemed to not fully understand what was even in the game, but the videos you can fine online of the tournaments could do all of the work for him anyway. The game looks amazing for an incomplete fighter. Every character has brand new moves in his or her repertoire which makes every fight look like something out of a well-choreographed martial arts movie. IGN Pro League was in charge of the tournament, which hosted several pro DOA tournament players.
But all of that was back at E3. Earlier today Tecmo Koei revealed the Dead or Alive 5 Collector’s Edition. The collector’s edition comes with a hardcover book, soundtrack of the game and a special steel case for the game, all for $79.99. Anyone who pre-orders the game will also get a handful of costumes for free, regardless if it’s for the collector’s edition or the standard edition. Downside to that is that it’s one of those, “based on where you pre-order the game from” deals. Pre-order the game from Gamestop and you’ll get bunny swimsuits for Hitomi, Kasumi and Leifang whereas pre-ordering it from Amazon and you’ll get “DOA Devils”(whatever that is?) swimsuits for Ayane, Tina and Christie.
Later this weekend, some more new characters and possibly a new trailer will be on the DOA 5 main site (according to the DOA 5 Facebook page) So hopefully I’ll be able to continue the Dead or Alive 5 watch from there.
In case anyone was wondering, this is the reason why the site hasn’t really been updating as often as it should be…
With this launch video, Project Nailbat’s Youtube channel is now live! Stay tuned for more videos in the upcoming weeks!
Most of this conference revolved around either Halo 4, new games for the Kinect, or new games that involved the Kinect in some way or form. But the overall conference was filled with the usual ups and downs. (though some would say that it had more downs than ups)
New Splinter Cell game: Splinter Cell: Blacklist – Now with Kinect. The new Splinter Cell game has you as Sam Ficher looking to prevent a terrorist group from assassinating key U.S. influences on what’s known as the Black List. Looks pretty hi-tech and even has Kinect playability
Another Gears of war Project: Judgement
Forza Horizon: Another Forza game that looks amazing and a cross between Need for Speed and Midnight Club with a touch of Burnout! Coming out at October this year
Other games included:
LocoCycle: A cool looking motorcycle that apparently goes really fast
Wreckatere – Angry Birds Kinect
Matter: a Kinect Game with spherical looking companion cubes from Portal
Stay tuned for more E3 goodness…or follow us on Facebook for live, on the spot blogging as we watch the conferences unfold.
Earlier today, the Dead or Alive 5 site updated it’s site completely as well as added a new video of yet another stage and two more returning characters. The site is now outfitted with New pages, including an updated character roster, an up to date list of stages featured and more.
The new video shows Leifang vs Zack, this time fighting in the middle of a live circus as if they were the main attraction. The stage has at least two forms, the first surrounded by flaming rings of fire with random tigers leaping through them and across the stage (which you can knock your opponent into for extra damage) while the second has a cannon where you can throw and shoot your opponent out of for even more damage.
