    55 STEPS Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Dark Phoenix CREED II
  5. Currently 8 games, but only 6 of those are officially in English. The two that aren't have fan translations though, with a redone translation about to finally release for Zero from the group known as Geofront. I've personally only played the first two Cold Steel games and barely started the first Sky. So I've got a long way to go. At least the Sky games are apparently much shorter than the Cold Steel games, because I spent around 100 hours on each of them.
  6. Nihon Falcom's JRPG series The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel has found a passionate audience in both Japan and western markets. Focusing on a band of military school cadets, the squad faces off against ever-growing threats across a wartorn land, while slowly building up their skills in combat and forming greater bonds of friendship. While Trails of Cold Steel 3 dropped for PlayStation 4 in the west last October, NIS America has revealed that the series will be making its debut on the Nintendo Switch next year. Coming sometime in Spring 2020, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 will launch on the Nintendo Switch in the U.S. and Europe ahead of the Japan release--which is something of a first for the franchise. Earlier this year, Nihon Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo stated that he hoped to get more games on the Nintendo's portable console following the Switch release of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana. Published by NIS America, a Switch demo for Trails of Cold Steel 3 will also be available shortly around the time of the game's launch. In comparison to its PlayStation 4 counterpart; The Switch version runs at a locked 720p resolution and 30 frames-per-second in both docked and undocked modes. Just like the PS4 release, the Switch version of Trails of Cold Steel 3 will also launch with special editions of the game. With the Extracurricular Edition, you'll get the base game, a 20-page art book, and a reversible cover. Whereas with the Thors Academy Edition, it comes with everything in the previous collection, along with a box set including a steelbook, game soundtrack, postcards, and a Mishy plushie. All versions of the game, including the standard release, will also have all Trails of Cold Steel 3 DLC items packed in as well. Though the west just got the third entry in the series, the final entry--Trails of Cold Steel 4--has been out in Japan for over a year. As of this time, the developers at Falcom are already looking ahead with the Legends of Heroes franchise, teasing a new storyline focusing on another group of characters. Just before the western PS4 release of Trails of Cold Steel 3, Kondo spoke about the JRPG series, and why it takes so long to release the games in the west. "As creators, we would love for everybody to be able to play the game as soon as possible but the reality is, because these [games] are so story focused, we're actually still fiddling with the text up until the very end, and we won't let localization partners work on it until it's complete," said Kondo. "These games are known for their very luminous stories, and it takes a long time to translate. This one, for example, has 2.4 million Japanese characters, and it just takes time."

    Free Games Megathread

    This thread is to alert everyone of games listed for free (legally, no pirated downloads here mate) on services like Steam, HumbleBundle, Origin, GOG, etc. So if you notice one is up for grabs, spread the word here while it's still available. Also feel free to share any steam codes / etc. that you don't want / don't have a use for. That being said, Crusader Kings II is currently free on Steam so get it while you can!
  8. I'd definitely buy it if ever happened. Legend of Dragoon, the Shadow Hearts series, and the XenoSaga series are some of my favorite games but we've heard very little about them since their original release.
  9. Near the end of the lifecycle of the original PlayStation, Sony Japan Studio released JRPG The Legend of Dragoon. While it received mixed reviews from critics and currently sits with a 74 Metacritic score, the game has garnered somewhat of a cult following through the years. While there has never been a sequel or another entry in the series, it appears that there could be a remake or remaster currently in the works. While a remaster of The Legend of Dragoon is far from confirmed, recent tweets from a developer at Bluepoint Games, a company known for its remakes and remasters of classic games, appears to open the door to the possibility that the game could see a remake. Technical director Peter Dalton shared a video on Twitter about the Shadow of the Colossus remake developed by Bluepoint Games, to which someone replied and asked Dalton if he liked The Legend of Dragoon. Dalton replied: Dalton's response may very well be an innocent question to garner interest about the 20-year-old JRPG rather than a hint that Bluepoint Games is working on a remaster of The Legend of Dragoon. But that is not stopping fans from speculating and piling on their own praise for the PS1 classic. After his original tweet got all the attention, Dalton acknowledged the passion fans shared for The Legend of Dragoon, tweeting that it is motivating to see: It is not at all unreasonable to think that Bluepoint Games could partner with Sony to remaster The Legend of Dragoon considering that the developer has worked on remaking or remastering some of Sony's biggest games and franchises including Shadow of the Colossus, Ico, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Gravity Rush, Flower, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and The God of War Collection. Bluepoint Games' last release was Shadow of the Colossus for PS4 in 2018 and the developer has yet to reveal what it may be working on currently. Outside of the original game, The Legend of Dragoon has never seen any kind of sequel; however, Dart Feld, the main protagonist from The Legend of Dragoon was originally on the list to become a DLC character for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale but was scrapped early in development for unknown reasons. The thought of a remake or remaster of the game is exciting for its fans, they will have to wait for a more official announcement to see if the JRPG may return three console cycles after its original release.

  11. Dragon Quest Heroes II was probably one of the most overlooked games of 2017. The hack and slash sequel had a solid combat system, an enjoyable story, and plenty of cool characters, but it just didn't seem to get the attention that it deserved. It was also a real improvement over the original, boasting a much better gameplay structure overall. Given the second game's quality, another sequel should be on the cards, but it sounds like the potential project has never been given the green light. According to director Tomohoki Sho -- who works under Koei Tecmo -- Dragon Quest Heroes 3 has been discussed, but putting it together would be quite a challenge. Speaking to Nintendo Everything, Sho says, "Obviously this is a Square Enix property so we can’t really say anything, but I have kind of mentioned to them before, ‘Shouldn’t we consider a third entry?" She continues: "So we’ve been talking a little about maybe putting out a third entry, but really the big thing is between I and II there were so many improvements made. If we were going to go from II to III, what else can we put in to really impress the players who played both games that will get them really excited and really emotionally moved by it? So there are a lot of hurdles. What would it be that we can put into the game? That’s still something we’re not sure how to do yet.” Indeed, a third game would have to be quite a step up, so Sho's comments on the situation make sense. Hopefully we'll see Dragon Quest Heroes 3 at some point.
  12. Cover art for a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis has appeared on Sony’s PlayStation Store. News of the leaked cover art comes via gamstat, which culls publicly available information from Sony’s API. In western markets the game will be titled Resident Evil 3. Alternate art includes a listing for Biohazard RE:3, likely intended for the Japanese market. A third piece of art refers to Biohazard RE:3 Z Version, likely an uncensored (or Z-rated in Japan by the Computer Entertainment Rating Organization) version of the game. Last year’s Resident Evil 2 remake also received a “Z Version” in Japan. The leaks come in advance of The Game Awards, which will stream live on Dec. 12, and could be home to an official reveal from Capcom. The third entry in the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil 3 was originally released in 1999. The survival horror game tells the story of Jill Valentine and her escape from an urban center affected by a biological weapon. That game’s boss, known as the Nemesis, features prominently in this new cover art. Today’s leak coincides with a report from YouTuber SpawnWave, who claimed to have credible reports that a remake was in development and on track for a 2020 launch. Eurogamer later reported similar details. In a financial report from October, Capcom called last year’s Resident Evil 2 remake an “indisputable success” for the company. The publisher said it would utilize dormant game properties and remakes to promote growth in the future. This isn’t the only Resident Evil game that developer Capcom has on the drawing board. Project Resistance — now apparently known as Resident Evil: Resistance — is a four-against-one online multiplayer game.

  14. I'm currently working on Final Fantasy XII and Radiata Stories whenever I feel like playing them.

    Anti rambles about...

    Well I check out the videos you post, but just don't always leave a comment. I guess I should try to do so more. Sure, but even with an entire paragraph for the title, it's not always an accurate portrayal of the plot. Like DanMachi. How often does Bell actually attempt to pick up girls in the dungeons? Shoot in season 2, I don't recall them ever even visiting the dungeon.
  16. I went to the movies and watched Live Free or Die Hard.. Wait erm, I went to the movies since then and watched Rush Hour 3.
  17. The Promised Neverland Yakusoku no Neverland AniDB | MAL Synopsis: Emma, Norman and Ray are the brightest kids at the Grace Field House orphanage. And under the care of the woman they refer to as "Mom," all the kids have enjoyed a comfortable life. Good food, clean clothes and the perfect environment to learn - what more could an orphan ask for? One day, though, Emma and Norman uncover the dark truth of the outside world they are forbidden from seeing.

    Anti rambles about...

    I agree about these long ass light novel titles and I think it would be much better if they just used the shortname they come up with anyways for the official sites domain name, etc. KonoSuba, DanMachi, Noukin, Choyoyu, etc... rather than an entire paragraph just for the series name.
  19. Disney announced in June 2019 that its Pixar film for next summer is Soul. The studio already had June 19 RSVP’ed on the 2020 calendar for an untitled Pixar movie, and this is it. Soul will be the second original Pixar film next year after Onward, which bows March 6. The tagline for Soul: Ever wonder where your passion, your dreams and your interests come from? What is it that makes you … you?” Directed by two-time Oscar winner Pete Docter (Up, Inside Out), the film takes place between New York City and the cosmic realms. Dana Murray, an Oscar nominee for her animated short film Lou, is producing. Before Disney’s D23 expo, we had only a ghost of a notion of just what was going on with their new animated feature, Soul. The brand new, original feature arriving in theaters on June 19, 2020 was described as tackling “life’s most important questions” on a journey that travels from New York City to the “cosmic realms.” Things have solidified a bit since then. We now know that the movie will follow Joe Gardner, a middle school band teacher and jazz aficionado who gets a big break to play at a high-class jazz club. The problem is, Joe apparently dies before he can get there and finds himself newly arrived in the “You Seminar.” And while that may sound decidedly dark, the core of the story is that Joe’s soul will get an opportunity to commune with a multitude of other souls that are awaiting a chance at consciousness. Thankfully, we have some concept art (and some casting details) to help wrap our heads around that. Joe will be played by Jamie Foxx (Ray) while Tina Fey (30 Rock) voices a spritely soul-in-training named 22 who has an unexpected encounter with Joe when he accidentally finds his way to the “You Seminar.” Together, the two are going to find a way to get Joe back to Earth, making him think again about what it truly means to have soul. But that’s not all! Ahmir Questlove Thompson (Detroit), Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show), and Daveed Diggs (Blindspotting) also star as a drummer, Joe’s mother, and Joe’s neighbor, respectively. And the musical hits keep on coming because Trent Reznor (The Social Network) and Atticus Ross (The Social Network) are composing the score while Jon Batiste (Red Hook Summer) is writing new music for the movie. Two-time Oscar-winner Pete Docter (Up, Inside Out) directs with co-director/writer Kemp Powers (Star Trek: Discovery), writer Mike Jones, and Oscar-nominee Dana Murray (Lou) producing. This is really shaping up to be something special.

    Hi! Everybody

    Welcome to Kametsu! Always nice to see a new face.
  22. During their panel at Anime NYC 2019 on Saturday, TMS Entertainment announced that the original boxing series Megalo Box has a second season in development. The story will be set seven years after the first season. Synopsis "To be quiet and do as you're told, that's the cowardly choice." These are the words of Junk Dog, an underground fighter of Megalo Box, an evolution of boxing that utilizes mechanical limbs known as Gear to enhance the speed and power of its users. Despite the young man's brimming potential as a boxer, the illegal nature of his participation forces him to make a living off of throwing matches as dictated by his boss Gansaku Nanbu. However, this all changes when the Megalo Box champion Yuuri enters his shabby ring under the guise of just another challenger. Taken out in a single round, Junk Dog is left with a challenge: "If you're serious about fighting me again, then fight your way up to me and my ring." Filled with overwhelming excitement and backed by the criminal syndicate responsible for his thrown matches, Junk Dog enters Megalonia: a world-spanning tournament that will decide the strongest Megalo Boxer of them all. Having no name of his own, he takes on the moniker of "Joe" as he begins his climb from the very bottom of the ranked list of fighters. With only three months left to qualify, Joe must face off against opponents the likes of which he has never fought in order to meet the challenge of his rival. [Written by MAL Rewrite] Megalo Box is based on an original draft by Ikki Kajiwara and Tetsuya Chiba, and it commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Ashita no Joe franchise. The anime marked You Moriyama's directorial debut. Katsuhiko Manabe and Kensaku Kojima handled the series composition, while Mabanua (Sakamichi no Apollon) worked on the music. The 13-episode TV anime aired in Spring 2018. The Blu-ray volumes included three short episodes, with the first serving as a prologue to episode one. Crunchyroll streamed the anime on its platform while it was airing. Viz released the series as a complete collection in June, which included a standard DVD, Blu-ray, and a limited edition Blu-ray.

    'Megalo Box' Gets Second Season Greenlit

    I never got around to watching season 1 personally, but it was a bit of a stand-out show due to the studio's decision to animate it at 405p to make it look older.

  25. Fast & Furious is all about family, and that has never been more true than with the billion-dollar franchise’s new Netflix animated series. Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation’s Fast & Furious: Spy Racers will feature Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf) as Dominic Toretto’s cousin Tony and Vin Diesel‘s own daughter Similce Diesel. Executive produced by Fast masterminds Diesel, Neal H. Moritz, and Chris Morgan, Spy Racers follows the adventures of teenager Tony, who follows in his cousin’s footsteps when a government agency recruits he and his friends to infiltrate an elite racing league that is a front front for a crime organization bent on world domination. Rounding out the main crew of characters are notable underground racer Layla Gray (American Vandal’s Camille Ramsey), 13-year-old tech genius Frostee Benson (Harry Potter‘s Luke Youngblood), master artist and natural spy Echo (Overwatch‘s Charlet Chung), the group’s muscle and sweetheart Cisco Renaldo (Jane the Virgin’s Jorge Diaz), and leader of the criminal organization SH1FT3R, Shashi Dhar (The Resident‘s Manish Dayal). Headlining the guest voice cast is Diesel’s oldest child, Similce, who plays Frostee’s younger sister Sissy. Also lending their voices are Renée Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton), Jimmy Tatro (American Vandal), Carlos Alazraqui (The Fairly OddParents), Eric Bauza (The Adventures of Puss in Boots), Grey Griffin (DC Super Hero Girls), Kevin Michael Richardson (Trolls: The Beat Goes On!), Fred Tatasciore (Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia), and Tru Valentino (Archibald’s Next Big Thing). With Fast & Furious 9 not scheduled to arrive in theaters until May 22, 2020, Spy Racers will help bridge the gap between films when it premieres Dec. 26 on Netflix. Below, check out the exclusive first look, beginning with Diesel and Posey.
