Atlus Shows Off Trailer for "Devil Survivor 2: Break Record"

  
During the Tokyo Game Show, Atlus showed off a trailer for the long-awaited "Devil Survivor 2: Break Record." The game is coming out in Japan on January 29th, 2015. They did not say if the game would come out in America, but since we got the first one, I would assume we will see some kind of release of this game here. Even if it turns out just to be an eShop release.
                  

"Devil's Third" For the Wii U Gets Improvements in Playability, Animations and Graphics


At this year's E3 one exclusive Wii U game that was shown off was "Devil's Third." However, some criticized the game for the way it looked. Since then, the producer of the game, Tomonobu Itagaki, said that the game has undergone a lot of changes. This included making changes to not only the playability of the game but also the look. During a interview with Japaneses gaming publication Famitsu, Itagaki had this to say:

"We love games more than anyone else. We love to play and have fun. That’s exactly why we went independent in the first place. We wanted to develop in an environment where the question, “what is a game?” could be our central focus when making a decision. And it was absolute luck that allowed us to create this game with Nintendo. I think it’s our mission to take advantage of this encounter and meet the expectations of both gamers and everyone working in the industry."

"But remember that what was shown in the trailer is only just one small part – we’ve poured our identity into every part of this game. Since E3, we’ve made major improvements in every area, from graphics to animations to playability. I know there will be some reactions like “what the hell is this?” But for now, we’ll just keep charging straight ahead!"

New "Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate" Trailer From the Tokyo Game Show

  
It's the start of the Tokyo Game Show today in Japan, and Capcom kicked things off with a new trailer for the upcoming 3DS game "Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate." You can watch the new trailer above.

We will be updating you with new Tokyo Game Show information over the next week. Although this is a gaming event for Japan, they usually provide us with new trailers for games that will be releasing in the west as well. Like this "Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate" trailer, which will be hitting stateside next year. Companies will also be showing off trailers for new games that have not been confirmed for the west yet, but chances of them getting translated are better than they used to be during the early years of the Tokyo Game Show.

Walmart Lists Super Smash Bros Wii U Amiibo Starter Pack


Walmart has just recently announced a special Super Smash Bros bundle for the Wii U. This is being called the Super Smash Bros Wii U Amiibo Starter Pack. The new bundle includes Super Smash Bros for Wii U and Mario, Pikachu and Link Amiibo figures.The bundle has been listed as $99, which isn't really much of a deal, when you consider that this is about how much it would cost if you purchased the game and three Amiibo figures separately. You have the option to add an additional Amiibo, but at the standard price of $13.

UPDATE: Rumor: "Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate" Coming to Wii U


UPDATE: Nintendo of Europe was able to confirm that "Monster Hunter 4" will not be coming to the Wii U. The banner in the picture above was nothing more than a misprint. Oh well, maybe another time ...

Some pictures from a gaming event in Germany have some people asking if "Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate" is coming to the Wii U. This rumor got started thanks to the picture you can see above. It clearly shows the "Monster Hunter 4" logo on it, but it also has the Wii U logo in the top right corner.

This rumor would not shock me if it was true. Capcom has release a Monster Hunter for both the Wii and the Wii U. As such, bringing these games to home consoles is something that Capcom is at least interested in. Also, "Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate" sold fairly well on the Wii U considering the install base at the time and the fact that it was a remake to a game that also came out on the Wii.
