PlayStation News: Fairy Tail Release Date Announced!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We're Getting Fired Up Now!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



The release date of the upcoming PS4 and Switch JRPG Fairy Tail has been announced by PlayStation's European YouTube channel! The game will be releasing in the already packed month of March which seems like very bad timing with the likes of Final Fantasy VII Remake releasing less than three weeks before Fairy Tail's March 19th release date, but we're thoroughly looking forward to playing the game next year!

For those of you who don't know, this RPG is being developed by Gust, the masterminds behind the Atelier series and is based off the anime series of the same name! Are you looking forward to this upcoming JRPG? Let us know in our comments section below!

Review: Jump Force (PS4 Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

J-Force Assemble!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under anime on  Jumpfo11

Developed by Spike Chunsoft and published by Bandai Namco, Jump Force is likely the biggest, most ambitious anime game the gaming community will see this year. So will it satisfy player’s anime fighting needs?

Game Modes:

Tutorial Missions: Tutorial mode is an extension of the mandatory tutorial and teaches the player more of the basics of combat in the game.

Story: Jump Force’s story starts off slow which makes it seem lackluster and impersonal at first. It starts with way too many story missions, the majority of which feel more like side missions. After completing the first few chapters, the story does start to improve and increase interest. There aren’t as many missions that don’t feel related to the story, and it picks up its pace which makes it more engaging than before. Finishing the story feels like completing an anime, it is very satisfying, but it feels like there should be more. One thing to note is that it occasionally a character might seem out of character in story mode which can make that part of the story feel off. Another important thing to note is that to play and progress in the story; the player must either go to the mission counters and chose Key Missions or talk to the correct character to progress. It can get a little confusing trying to figure out where to go at times but remembering the minimap is key.

Free Missions: This mode is definitely a good one to grind. In this mode, the player can obtain experience, money, upgrade materials, cosmetic items, abilities, and J-Skills. These missions are not that hard to complete and range in difficulty from Easy to Expert. To get the most out of this mode, the player would want to get S-rank on each mission which does take some time.

Extra Missions: In this mode, the player completes missions which increase their level cap and obtain elements to apply to some abilities allowing the player to fine-tune their play style even more.

Online: In online mode, the player can fight other players online. There is the option to play quick matches, ranked matches, or friend matches. These modes are well implemented, but it would have been nice to have a rematch option in the friend matches, so friends don’t have to go through a ridiculous number of loading screens each time they do a match.

Offline: In offline mode, the player can choose to fight a couch-side friend, a CPU, have two CPUs fight each-other, or train. This mode probably doesn’t get as much credit as it deserves, but it certainly isn’t as prominent as the other modes.

Customization:
In the game, there are multiple options for customization which are mostly broken down into avatar creation, customization items, and abilities.

Avatar Creation: In avatar creation, the player can create their avatar. They chose which type of fighting style (Martial Arts, Pirate, or Ninja) and customize their avatar’s appearance. The avatar creation is very good and allows players to create incredibly unique avatars or recreate a character from the animes in the game. Some of the options such as hair and the two features can be changed in-game, but everything else is not, so create wisely.

Customization Items: Customization Items are the clothing and accessories the avatars wear. They can be obtained via the in-game shop or through Free Missions. The options for this seem a little limited currently in terms of styles and colors, but the developers are releasing more options in future patches.

Abilities: Abilities are the moves the player’s avatar uses from the pool of in-game playable characters’ moves. Choosing moves allows for some whacky combinations or utter destruction. Abilities can be swapped out at any time, and the player can obtain new moves either through the in-game store or playing Free Missions. Some abilities are also eligible for element changes which were mentioned a little earlier. Abilities are a very important part of avatar customization as it decides the players play style.

Technical Bits:

Controls: The controls are very different from other Bandai fighting games, but are very easy to get used to and help create a very smooth fighting experience.

Visuals: The visuals in Jump Force are one of the things that had the biggest interest factor for the game. Luckily the visuals live up to what was seen in the trailers and continue to be amazing with few flaws. The main flaw left by having such great graphics is that the faces of some of the anime characters wind up looking like their face was pasted onto their model, but luckily that flaw does not apply to most of the characters. Apart from that, the graphics for the game are amazing compared to other Bandai fighting games. The special effects, maps, and avatar details are awesome.

Audio: Chunsoft chose to go with an epic style for their music which sounds good and helps round out the theme of the game, and the sound effects are good. The voice acting is very good, but it only comes in Japanese audio with English subtitles which could cause an issue for some players.

Completion: Full completion of Jump Force will likely take at least 70 hours likely more to do all the missions and experience multiplayer. It is also the kind of game where the multiplayer is something to come back to for an extended length of time.

DLC: There are confirmed DLC characters as of right now and a Character Pass which grants players nine DLC characters and access to those characters four days before they are available for purchase. There are only nine DLC character spots confirmed at this point, but there is the possibility that they could increase the number later on.

Conclusion: Jump Force will satisfy a player’s anime fighting needs at least until their next game comes out if not beyond that. It has a few rough spots but all in all, it is a solid game.

Review: Song of Memories (PS4 Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Melodic Love Story Making A Splash!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under anime on  75257010

Developed by Pure Wish and published by PQube, Song of memories is an Romantic apocalyptic visual novel with light RPG elements that left a lasting impression, but is that enough to make it stand out amongst the dozens of other visual novels that are available on the PS4? We think so and here's why:

Topics tagged under anime on  Maxres10

Song of Memories starts out as a typical and somewhat pervy visual novel for the first few chapters with some awkward adopted sister moments, and the stereotypical harem storyline, however you'll suddenly find a tablet with AI girls with super powers and will face-off against monsters in a rhythm/RPG hybrid battle system which all comes together excellently!

The story is quite lengthy, clocking in at over 50 hours in length and as odd as this is to say in a "visual novel" it can be rather tough at times during battles, that said it didn't prevent us from finishing the game!

Topics tagged under anime on  75257012

The audio-visual presentation in Song of Memories is absolutely superb with excellent character models, enemy designs, and animated backgrounds. The special effects during battles can be mesmerizing at times, though it can be somewhat distracting. Also the over-the-top boob physics can be quite erm...funny, yet can detract from the otherwise perfect visual presentation at times. The soundtrack and voice acting are also flawless, though as always we do wish there was at least an option for English voice overs.

Topics tagged under anime on  75257010

Bottom-Line: With an excellent story with unique gameplay and an amazing audio-visual presentation, Song of Memories will provide adults with many hours of enjoyment. It is a shame that the Nintendo Switch version of the game was cancelled, but if you are an adult and own a PS4 or Vita, we recommend giving the game a chance! As for our opinions, we give Song of Memories for the PS4 and Vita a good level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★★¼☆ 8.25/10

Review: My Hero One's Justice (PS4 Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Hero's Justice?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under anime on  Wvam1012

Developed by Byking Inc. and published by Bandai Namco, My Hero Academia now has its own fighting game: My Hero One’s Justice. While this fresh anime has wooed fans, is the game up to par?

Topics tagged under anime on  Jxtw3011

Story:

In the Story Mode there are three chapters to the campaign. The first chapter of the three-part campaign is the Hero chapter. This section of the campaign takes you through the events from when the young heroes begin their internships to the fight between All Might and All for One. Which in reference to the anime is around the middle of season two to the middle of season three. Finishing the Hero chapter feels very rewarding and unlocks the villain chapter. Unfortunately, the villain chapter falls a bit flat.

It is practically the same thing as the hero chapter, so it just feels like a repeat with different characters. In addition to the lackluster feeling of repeating the main events they also seemed to throw in some unnecessary side missions which have nothing to do with the plot. After finishing the villain chapter, the last chapter of the campaign unlocks. This chapter covers the U.A Sports Festival, which happened before the events of both the previous chapters. It is nice that it was included, but it feels very out of place and seems like a last-minute decision. Overall the Story mode to My Hero One’s Justice started off strong but fell short towards the end.

Mission Mode:

Mission Mode in My Hero One’s Justice is a great place to fine tune fighting skills and earn more accessories for customization. The missions start off easy, but progressively gets harder towards the later missions.

This mode is good for hone skills since it introduces fighting under extreme circumstances sometimes. Mission mode adds specific stipulations under which matches can be won. Some examples of these stipulations would be: win by ring-out (out of bounds), survive until time expires while health slowly degenerates, beat enemies while their health slowly regenerates, etc. These missions make mission mode challenging and rewarding upon completion.

Customization Modes:

In game there are two modes for customization: Customize Profile and Customize Character. In Customize Profile one can customize a card that will display player information while playing in online mode. This card customization consists of a background, a picture, a title, and a comment. All the customizations for this mode are available by playing, beating, or leveling specific characters. In Customize Character one can customize the outfits, introduction scenes, and voice sets. Most of the character’s outfits and accessories can be obtained by fulfilling conditions in story and mission modes, but a few of them must be purchased using in game currency earned by completing matches.

The customizations to the introductions include a special background, a customizable “mottos” and text color. Most of the mottos can be unlocked by fulfilling conditions or can simply be unlocked through purchase. The backgrounds and text colors are exclusively unlockable through purchase. There is also the option to change the sets of dialogue the characters use in matches.

There are voices for match introductions, attack voices, victory voices, and extended voice packs. All the voice packs besides the default ones must be purchased. There is the ability to create three costume presets in Customize Character mode which allows for the player to save three different outfit, accessory, voice sets, and introduction customizations to be used in Mission, Local, and Online modes. All in all, the game has a very expansive customization system that lets the players express themselves.

The Technical Bits:

Controls: The controls for this game are very easy to learn on PlayStation 4 as they are relatively similar to other fighting games.

Visuals: The visuals for this game are standard for Bandai brand fighting games. They are not anything particularly new or more detailed, but still satisfying to see.

Audio: The audio for the game is satisfying. The music in the menus is very peppy but not in your face. In the matches the music is more intense and helps set the mood while fighting. In the end the music fits the game very well. The dialogue for the game is in Japanese and is very nice to listen to since it is the same voice actors from the anime, but the only problem is that there are no subtitles. Due to this someone who does not know Japanese will likely be unable to know what the characters are saying.

Completion: To 100% this game with fulfilling all the special conditions in story and mission modes could take an average of 50 hours give or take. This does not include all the customization unlocks and trophies (for the PlayStation 4 version) since there are so many customizations unlocks which also feed into the trophies.

A word on Multiplayer: In this game the Online Mode works completely fine most of the time. There are some instances where the matchmaking will time-out and force the player to re-que, but there is also another error that is a bit more frustrating. Less common than the previous error is when loading into a pre-match screen the screen will just stay a dark red with nothing on it to indicate it is loading. The screen can stay that way for an indefinite amount of time. The easiest way to fix this is to restart the game. Waiting the screen out is doable sometimes, but likely not worth the wait.

DLC: There are DLCs for My Hero One’s Justice to unlock extra characters and missions for extra customizations. They are not necessary to enjoy the game and thus are completely optional.

Bottom-Line: My Hero One’s Justice is a decent anime fighting game. For fans the game is enjoyable despite the shortcomings of the story. However, for people who have not watched the anime or read the manga it would likely be lackluster. We give the game a decent level of recommendation.
