Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax Ignition location test gameplay hits online

While we are getting closer to the American release of Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax, there is already a ‘expanded’ version of the game being tested for release in Japan. While some people are calling it a ‘sequel’, to me it seems like a update to the game, sort of how Street Fighter II was updated to Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting a year after release.

The video clip above shows off new characters Quenser Barbotage (from Heavy Object) and Emi Yusa (from The Devil is a Part-Timer). Fighting Climax Ignition is set for arcades this summer in Japan, while the first game is coming to Playstation 3 and Vita in America on August 25th.

What do you guys think of this game? Will this updated release effect your purchase in August?

New Persona 4: Dancing All Night Trailer shows off the cast’s dancing moves

Here’s a new trailer for Persona 4: Dancing All Night, Atlus’ dancing rhythm game for the PS Vita. P4: Dancing All Night features characters from the popular Persona series- you guessed it, dancing all night. But this trailer boasts more than just a jig with a boy in a bear suit. Dancing All Night features a pretty meaty story mode, told through animated cut scenes and Persona style talking heads. Plus an impressive selection of songs and outfits to dress your favourite Persona 4 characters in.

Persona 4: Dancing All Night will release on June 25th, 2015 for the PS Vita in Japan. Western dates still to be announced sometime within the year.

Atlus has updated their Japanese site with box art for the standard edition of Persona 4: Dancing All Night, which you can see above. As far as what the box art for the Crazy Value and Premium Crazy Box limited editions will look remains a mystery.

For those that don’t know Persona 4 Dancing All Night is a spin-off title that takes place half a year after the events of Persona 4 and this one (like the title suggests) is a Rhythm game instead of a JRPG.

The game is set to hit Japan on June 25th, only on Playstation Vita and everywhere else sometime within this year. So, what do you think of the box art?

Atlus bringing Lost Dimension to Playstation 3 and Vita this Summer

Good news for Playstation 3 and especially Playstation Vita owners, you guys will get a new RPG to play and honestly it sounds pretty interesting. The game takes everything you like from RPG and adds a twist. In this game the twist is that someone in your party is a traitor, so while you and your comrades go out on missions you will have the ability to try and figure out who the traitor is. Here is the kicker, if you guess the traitor wrong, that person can turn around and betray you due to false accusations.The idea is to find out the traitor and kill them before they can cause damage to your team and in turn your mission.

Lost Dimension will be a tactical RPG that will be released this summer in both North America and Europe. Atlus has also revealed that the game will cost a mere $39.99 at launch and will be released in both digital and retail. Sadly it has also been confirmed that the game will only have English dub voices and no Japanese audio in the Western release.

The developer for the game is Lancarse who worked on the Etrian Odyssey, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey and Unchained Blades.

Seems that SEGA is trying to bring the Valkyria Chronicles series back to life, first with the PC port of the first game (that came out today, by the way) and now this crossover with Phantasy Star Nova.

Phantasy Star Nova gives you the option of using a Valkyria form costume of the character Riela Marcellis. We have covered other collaborations like Resonance of Fate, Star Ocean  and Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth. Phantasy Star Nova will be getting a second demo on November 13th on the Japanese PSN.

What do you guys think of all these Phantasy Star collaborations? Should this continue to be a staple of the series or is it getting out of hand?
