Screens: Like fighters? You're probably looking forward to Street Fighter X Tekken

Bringing two of the most popular fighting game franchises together is always a marketer's dream. Street Fighter X Tekken should have the gameplay to back that up, and looks just divine.

Buy Ninja Gaiden 3; get download code for Dead or Alive 5

Love them or hate them, it's hard to deny that Tecmo Koei doesn't try to look after its fans.

Square Enix and Final Fantasy XIII-2; stuck between a rock and a crazy place

So the first reviews of Final Fantasy XIII-2 is in, with Famitsu giving it a perfect score of 40/40.

More important than the score, though, Famitsu’s critics unanimously agreed that everything that people complained about in FFXIII was resolved. This one is not a linear game that pulls you down one path to another, it’s a full-fledged Final Fantasy game with towns, minigames, and all the other trappings we know and love from the series of old.

Screens: One Piece: Kaizoku Musou

Bandai Namco's upcoming collaboration with the Warriors franchise for a all-action One Piece game is perhaps the best chance this series has had to date to have an awesome video game tie-in, and the screenshots are looking grand.

Review: Pokemon Rumble Blast (3DS)

You have to hand it to Nintendo. For some six months 3DS owners have had to get by with very limited support for the console. From Nintendo itself we’ve had a few (very good) ports of classic games we’ve already finished a hundred times, and from third parties we’ve had virtually nothing since the initial launch.

Screens: Samurai & Dragons (PS Vita)

Hm, I sniff a bit of a play on the old Dungeons & Dragons name here by SEGA. But that's ok, because this upcoming PSVita release looks just dandy.

Import Review: Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD (PS3)

Like many who live outside of Japan, my first experience with Capcom’s Monster Hunter series was with Monster Hunter Tri on the Nintendo Wii. The remastering of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd on the PlayStation 3 appealed to me - as I have only played one game in the series before - even though the game is entirely in Japanese.

Screens: Samurai Warriors 3 Z Special looking like a fitting farewell to PSP Warriors games

PS Vita owners have a new Dynasty Warriors game to look forward to, but that doesn't mean Tecmo Koei has forgotten the PSP faithful. It has a port of the Wii/ PS3 game, Samurai Warriors 3 headed its way, and it looks like more good fun.

Screens: Be the ninja with Vita launch title, Shinobito 2: Recenge of Zen

Sneaking around on rooftops, sticking a sword through enemies and watching fountains of blood spurt out are all good fun, and exactly what Acquire's PS Vita launch title, Shinobito, is promising.

Screens: Yakuza is looking fine on PSP

Every time I play a Yakuza game, I miss Japan. SEGA has managed to get the look and feel of urban Japan just perfect for this series of games, to the point where I can shut my eyes and pretend I'm there.
