What’s this? Wait, let’s go in order. What exactly Short Peace is? It is an anthology anime film by Katsuhiro Otomo, legendary artist and anime director, best known for his masterpiece Akira. By anthology we mean a collection of four short movies directed by different artists. Here’s the trailer for the movie.

Now, Short Peace itself is composed by four short movies, let’s say four pieces, all about “Japan” as a common subject, but there is one more. The fifth bit of the of the project is indeed a video game. And it’s out today (January 16) in Japan.

Sony teases a viral about Hadouken Cabs

8 Nov

hadouken cabs sony ps4 street fighter

VG24/7 reported this morning to has been sent quite a weird viral video from Sony. The short fake ad is called Hadouken Cabs and it’s surely related to something Street Fighter and PS4 (we’re such great detectives). Enjoy!

It could be everything, but given the recent announcement about a Japanese arcade release of Ultra Street Fighter 4, this could probably lead to an upcoming home release on the next-gen. But hey, as we told, could be everything, even a HD remake collection. Stay tuned!

Ah! Don’t forget to visit hadoukencabs.com for more weird stuff!

Murasaki Baby is the new game from Ovosonico

21 Aug

 

murasaki baby ovosonico

Few months ago we report you about Ovosonico, the Italian indie developer founded by former Suda51′s Grasshopper Manifacture director Massimo Guarini, signing an exclusive contract with Sony, to bring (at least) a new IP to one of the PlayStation platforms.

Now, after yesterday’s Sony conference at Gamescom 2013, we’re able to tell you that the new game from Ovosonico is called Murasaki Baby. The title, that seems belonging directly to one of the creepiest Tim Burton’s dreams, is a very unique platformer for PS Vita.

Guarini himself defines the game as “utterly original, deeply emotional adventure taking place in one of the most insanely grotesque and fantastic worlds that human mind has ever conceived”, and we easely agree with that.

The game also seems to make great use of both Vita’s touch screens.

Zone of the Enders HD is finally in proper HD (but just on PS3)

26 Jul

ZOE HD

When Zone of the Enders HD collection came out it was everything but a proper HD. In fact, even Kojima complained about the poor improvements made on his games, promising a new version soon. Well, they didn’t make a bran new version, instead Konami gave the game to japanese developer Hexa Drive, that patched the game in true HD. Below you can find some comparisons between the game before the patch and after.

Sony (kinda) teases the new PlayStation 4 hardware

20 May

ps4 playstation 4

It’s safe to say that the new PlayStation 4 is really good looking. Maybe…if only we could actually see it!

The brand new console from Sony, pictured above, has been teased by the Japanese company in a not-so-clear video uploaded earlier today.

With the promise that the PS4 will be available to admire (and maybe try) at the next E3, here’s the video. Try to spot some shapes, if you can…

Announcement trailer for Gran Turismo 6

15 May

gran turismo 6

Yep, looks like Gran Turismo 6 is really coming, and if it won’t be delayed too much (see: GT5) we will be able to enjoy it on the current PlayStation 3 console (so, no next-gen at all? We’ll see). Now, it’s hard to say what the game will be about, well, it will be about cars, ok, but from a single trailer (below) we don’t want to risk too much by saying that Polyphony Digital guys are doing a great job. You decide.

For now, we just know that the game features 1200 different cars and something like 33 circuits. Not bad at all!

Your move Forza Motorsport.

You can access Miiverse on PS Vita but not on 3DS

You can access Miiverse on PS Vita but not on 3DS

Earlier this week Nintendo released the web browser version of their till-now-WiiU-only Miiverse; and that’s fine. So what’s the problem? Well, you can easily access to the site via your PC’s browser, but if you try to explore the Miiverse with one of the Nintendo handhelds’ built-in browser…no way!

No big deal, you say. We agree…but what if the PS Vita can open it? LoL

First Rain in-game footage shown at GDC

26 Mar

rain ps3 psn

 

Rain is an atmospheric PSN game from Sony Computer Entertainment’s Japan Studio, and it was announced during Sony’s last Gamescom conference. The story centers on a little boy who has become invisible, and the player’s only distinct image of the boy’s position is through interacting with the world’s ever-pouring rain. It sounded like a cool project, but now we got some proofs! SCE finally released the first in-game footage of the game at these day’s GDC 2013.
