Nintendo has just announced another Nintendo Direct video presentation, and like the Hyrule Warriors Direct two months ago, Thursday's Direct will focus on a specific game. Bayonetta 2 is the star of the upcoming video. Bayonetta 2 launches in North America on October 24, and buying the latest title from Platinum Games will net you the original Bayonetta for no extra charge. We're likely to see plenty of new action-packed footage and find out more gameplay and story details in the Direct, so tune in on September 4 at 3:00 pm Pacific. That's 6:00 pm Eastern, and 11:00 pm for our friends in the UK.

It's no secret that Sony has been kind of ignoring their handheld lately, and even worse seem to see it as more of a peripheral to the PlayStation 4, but not anymore! The multimedia giant has just announced a new IP to be developed by Spike Chunsoft, developers of other niche but loved series' such as Danganronpa and the Zero Escape series.

Head inside to watch the teaser!

During Sony's press conference yesterday, Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida shared some good news for Sony's first-party development studios. Since the PlayStation 4's launch, on top of the system itself exceeding ten million units sold worldwide, several of Sony's first party titles have broken the one million units mark in the last ten months. Knack, Killzone: Shadow Fall, The Last of Us Remastered, and Infamous: Second Son have all sold rather impressively. This will likely mean more first-party Sony titles in the future. Whether that is good or bad news to you is up to personal preference, but more potentially high-quality games can hardly be a bad thing.

The new versions of the Nintendo 3DS have us all very excited. With features including a new built-in camera, internet browser, better CPU, and enhanced wireless settings, these new installments to the 3DS line seem to have evolved quite a bit from their predecessors. However, while Nintendo has us hyped with the promise of new hardware, they may not give their new customers the means to play with their new handheld systems for very long.

A gameplay demo of Level-5's upcoming action RPG and life-sim, Fantasy Life, was released recently  PAX Prime. The video shows off the game's "Life Class" system, which is essentially about non-combat oriented skills that you can do, including blacksmithing, mining, alchemy, and cooking. The pet system is also touched on, showing off the nameable companions that the player can get by doing certain quests but no information has been given if they are purchasable in-game or not. To read a bit more and see the gameplay video, click down below!

Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV, two of Square Enix's biggest and most hotly-anticipated titles, were revealed at E3 2013 but have been kept largely under wraps since. Both games were a no-show at this year's E3, and Square Enix stated that E3 2014 was "not the best time" to reveal more information. 

Tokyo Game Show is right around the corner, so many assumed Square Enix was saving their next look at these games for the more Japan-centric event. Unfortunately, this does not appear to be the case. Square Enix has revealed the list of titles they'll be displaying at Tokyo Game Show, and neither game is on the list. Hit the jump to catch the list!

PAX Prime 2014 is turning out to be a treasure trove of Mighty No. 9 goodness! In addition to the Mighty No. 9 beta announcement and the Military Base footage, Keiji Inafune and his team at Comcept have released a new trailer for the Mega Man spiritual successor. Much like its predecessors, Mighty No. 9 will feature eight main enemy robots, each with their own unique stage. This new trailer gives us a good look at some of the level diversity, with stages ranging from an under-construction skyscraper to a moving, rain-pelted train top. Check it all out after the jump!

Dead or Alive is finally returning to our screens, according to an announcement made by Koei Tecmo producer Yosuke Hayashi at the Japan Gamers Live award ceremony last weekend. He has revealed that Dead or Alive 5: Last Round will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One early next year.

Listen up Adventure Time fans: this winter you will be able to design your very own Adventure Time game! According to Pixel Press, they will be partnering "with Cartoon Network to deliver the first branded version of Pixel Press." This announcement was just made yesterday on Re/code as well as the St. Louis Business Journal.

Head past the jump to see what Pixel Press has to say about their newest partnership.

The recently revealed protagonist of Persona 5 has yet to be given an official name, but in the meantime, the internet has given him one of their own. Japanese fans have already taken to calling the bespectacled student ポッター, or "Potter" to non-Japanese speakers, as in "Harry Potter." The comparison has been made on Western sites, too, the GameFAQs and Giant Bomb forums have also seen reports of people saying the new Atlus protagonist looks like the boy who lived, but we are less prone to nicknames in the English-speaking world, I suppose.

The trend has also already spawned a slew of fan art and silly photoshops. More after the jump.
