Attack on Titan is Finally Getting a Console Game

For a long time now, fans have wanted a console version of Attack on Titan. There have been a couple of valiant efforts for the handheld market from Spike Chunsoft for the 3DS, but they weren’t exactly stellar. Now, years later, Attack on Titan is finally coming to consoles on the PS3, PS4, and Vita. The developer? Koei Tecmo, apparently! Not much is known at the moment, other than the fact that it will be developed by Omega Force and published by Koei Tecmo in partnership with Kodansha, who is responsible for publishing the manga both here in North America and overseas in Japan. Of course, it seems like there will be plenty of...


North America Release Date for Persona 5 Announced

With little to no presence of Atlus at E3 this year, I was left with the idea that we would have to wait for the latest iteration of Persona until some time in 2015. However, according to the official North American website for Persona 5, Altus USA will be bringing the newest entry in the Persona series stateside later this year. This was a nice little surprise for fans of Persona, as until this point we only knew that the Japanese release date for Persona 5 was slated for later 2015. For those of you unfamiliar with Persona or interested in learning more, here’s a trailer for Persona 5 that has some gameplay and...


Announcement of Hyrule Warriors 3DS Leaked

Earlier today a trailer showcasing Hyrule Warriors on the Nintendo 3DS was leaked, confirming the games release for the handheld system. I say leaked because Koei Tecmo was quick to bring the trailer for the game down. But with the internet being the internet, the damage was done. The trailer has since been uploaded to Youtube and you can check it out here (if it doesn’t get shut down): Since the announcement wasn’t an official one very few details about the ported Wii U title are known, though a few things made it through the cracks. The game is currently titled “Zelda Musou – Hyrule All-Stars” and will be adding...


Akiba’s Trip – Undead and Undressed – Nudity Kills

Every once in a while, I encounter a video game that just outright fascinates me. Whether because of interesting mechanics, nutty concepts, or some intangible X-Factor, these games consume my time and leave me in a state of awe. In the summer of 2002, at the ripe old age of nine years old, it was Mr. Mosquito. During one of my first forays into the Let’s Play community in 2010, it was Octodad. And now, smackdab in the middle of my first few months here at BentoByte, it’s Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed. I should clarify at the outset that finding a game fascinating does not necessarily translate to a...


Resident Evil Zero Remaster Trailer and Details Revealed

The Resident Evil series isn’t a stranger to remakes and remasters. Hell, Capcom even came out with a remastered version of the Resident Evil Remake earlier this year. So when I heard that the series was getting another remaster, I wasn’t all too surprised. Until the producers of Resident Evil revealed that the new remaster would be for Resident Evil Zero, one of the few titles in the franchise that I haven’t played. Resident Evil Zero is one the less talked about installments in the Resident Evil series. But I’ve never been sure of why that is. Perhaps it was because it was only available on Gamecube, Wii and PC? Though the REmake was...


Not A Hero: Devolver Digital’s Side-Scrolling Murder Machine

As I slid through a doorway, after slaying an entire building full of mobsters for the anthropomorphic rabbit BunnyLord, I began to realize a lot of things that make the game Not A Hero incredibly entertaining. Not A Hero, a game developed by Roll 7 and published by Devolver Digital (the publisher behind Hotline Miami, which happens to be a favorite of mine), is two dimensional, pixelated, side-scrolling, with cover based elements. On the whole, Not A Hero is exactly what you would expect coming from Devolver Digital. It has it’s flaws here and there, but overall the game is rather entertaining, challenging, and humorous. If you haven’t checked out the game itself, the trailer, or...


Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains Gets Release Date, New Trailer

Last month Atlus dropped a bombshell by announcing that they would be localizing Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains. Everyone was thrilled but we were left with no release date other than sometime in May. Today, however, Atlus has finally confirmed the release date and they also dropped a new trailer. The new trailer showcases the playable characters from Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, which includes several of the characters you know and love from the manga and the anime. Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Levi, and Sasha will all be playable in the upcoming game. As for the release date, it’s probably closer than you were expecting. The game will...


Oceanhorn – Monster of Uncharted Seas Review

A young child clad in a blue tunic wakes from his slumber after having a vision of adventure. Something is calling for him from a nearby cave. He stirs briefly and goes to investigate, not before inquiring with the local hermit who seems way too wise to be stranded on an island. He finds an item of great magic and discovers, from the aforementioned hermit, that he is actually destined to be a great hero. This great hero must collect three elemental based emblems to fight off some great evil and save his land. This generally encompasses this game’s plot. What game is it? You’d be forgiven for mistaking that...


Paperbound Review

Paperbound is the latest in a string of party games that focus in on local multiplayer, in an apparent effort to bring people together for nights of fun and laughter. After titles like Samurai Gunn and Towerfall, how can Paperbound make a name for itself? How about diving into some classic literature, gravity shifting, and mad dashes for the exit when its all said and done? Paperbound does all that, to mixed results and proves a worthy competitor for your party game lineup. Paperbound’s meat is in its gameplay, so let’s start with the cosmetics. Paperbound doesn’t have a story, but it does offer an interesting perspective on the arena...


Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains is Headed For the US

Back in October of last year, there were rumors that Atlus would be handling the release of Attack on Titan: Last Wings of Humanity here in North America. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened yet, but now they’ve revealed their plans to bring the sequel stateside. That’s right, Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains is headed our way, courtesy of Atlus. You thought this year was stacked before? It’s only getting better. The game, which is developed by Spike Chunsoft and based on the hit anime series, was originally released in Japan earlier this year. The game features both local and online co-op for up to four players, as well as support...


It Came From Space, and Ate Our Brains Review

There are a lot of games that are stuck on the block aesthetic these days, and it seems like they’re never going to stop coming at this point. But just because something has that aesthetic, doesn’t mean it’s not worth playing. There are a number of games that feature a block-based aesthetic which can still be worthwhile. Unfortunately in the case of It Came From Space, and Ate Our Brains though, it’s only halfway there. It Came From Space, and Ate Our Brains is a twin-stick shooter with an emphasis on survival. You play a character named evidently named Jerry as you try to survive the onslaught of hordes of pink...


The Latest Trailer for One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 Shows off Shanks

Yesterday the Japanese branch of Bandai Namco Games uploaded a video of Shanks gameplay from One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 to their channel, and it is awesome. The trailer which only runs for about half a minute shows off what it’ll be like fighting through hordes of marines as the one and only Red Haired Shanks of the Red Hair Pirates. This is a pretty big deal, since it’s the first time in the series we’ll have had the opportunity to play as him, and while this trailer isn’t very long it does give us a nice taste of what we can expect. Given his reputation in the series as one...


Kickstarter Preview – Slain! by Wolfbrew Games

Slain is a game with a button dedicated to decapitation. What more do you need to know? Okay, probably lots more. I recently got a chance to check out a sliver of the alpha for Wolfbrew Games’ Slain!, a gory hack-n-slash game that is, at the time of publication, closing out its Kickstarter. Slain! follows the story of Bathoryn, a bearded adventurer whose goal is to travel through a gothic land and liberate seven great towers. One of the first things you’ll realize, whether through playing it or just by taking a peek at their Kickstarter page, is how beautiful Slain! is. Featuring a highly detailed pixel art style, the...


God of War 3 is Getting Remastered for the PS4

If you never played God of War 3 when it was originally released for the PS3 back in 2010, you missed out. It’s okay if you did though, because now you’ll be able to rectify that mistake if you’re the proud owner of a PS4. That’s because God of War 3 is on the way to the PS4, and yes, it’s being remastered (of course). According to Sony, the game is targeting 1080p at 60 FPS, and as a PC gamer I can tell you that’s a pretty important target to hit. We’ll have to see whether or not that holds up come release time in July, but since we’re now...
