According to a set of recent comments on Twitter and NeoGAF, publisher Limited Run Games is interested in giving digital-only titles Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies physical releases, as well as a handful of other titles. Limited Run Games is a publisher known for giving physical releases to digital-only titles, such as Oddworld: New N' Tasty and Futuridium EP Deluxe; however, they've previously only released titles for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, so releases of Fatal Frame and Ace Attorney would be their first Wii U and 3DS titles.

Atlus has just revealed that the next iteration of their well-regarded Persona series, Persona 5, is launching on September 15th in Japan for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Accompanying this announcement, they released a new, absolutely gorgeous (Japanese) trailer for the upcoming game. It's an explosion of color, drawing sharp contrast with the Shin Megami Tensei series, of which Persona is a spin-off. Unfortunately we don't have a Western release date yet, but Persona 5 will be present at E3, so the chances are big that that's the moment the date will be revealed.

Back in February, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be getting its own LEGO game. In honor of Star Wars Day, IGN recently interviewed LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens' director, who showed off eight minutes of brand new footage from the game. In the video, you start off on the planet of Jakku as Poe Dameron and BB-8, where the director shows off some of the gameplay. The game features that classic LEGO humor and introduces the players to some brand new features, like BB-8's ability to charge vehicles.

Mighty No. 9, the Kickstarter-funded spiritual successor to Capcom's Mega Man, was originally planned to launch over a year ago, but the game's release was delayed time and time again. The third time developer Comcept delayed the game, they claimed it would be launching in the Spring, but recently-discovered promotional materials suggested that it had been delayed yet again, this time to Summer.

At long last, we have an(other) official release date. Director Keiji Inafune has released a message to fans revealing that the game has officially gone gold (meaning development has been completed), and that it will launch in North America and Asia on June 21st and worldwide on June 24th. However, the 3DS and Vita versions will launch at a later date.

The PlayStation Plus lineup for May 2016 has been revealed, which includes six games across Sony's three platforms. Tropico 5, Table Top Racing: World Tour, and Switch Galaxy Ultra will all be available on PlayStation 4, while PlayStation 3 owners will get Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 and LocoRoco Cocoreccho! Additionally, Switch Galaxy Ultra is free on PlayStation Vita through cross-buy, and the handheld is also getting God of War: Ghost of Sparta. All of these titles will be downloadable for free as of May 3rd, meaning April's games will return to full price at the same time. Make the jump to view a trailer for this month's lineup.

After leaving Capcom, Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune and the development team at Comcept began working on a spiritual successor to Mega Man known as Mighty No. 9. It's been over a year since the Kickstarter-funded action-platformer was originally scheduled to release, and we still don't have a concrete release date. Back in January, Mighty No. 9 was delayed for the third time (despite promises that there would be no more delays after the second), this time to a generic "Spring" release window.

Unfortunately, it's looking like Mighty No. 9 may be delayed yet again. Promotional materials for the long-awaited game were spotted at retailer EB Games, and they list a Summer 2016 release window for the game. Comcept has not yet commented on the supposed delay, and they haven't issued any updates on the game's Kickstarter since January.

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was another slow week in Japan despite a flurry of new releases. Star Fox Zero made its debut in Japan last week, and between the standalone game and the Star Fox Guard bundle, it sold just over 25,000 copies. One Piece: Burning Blood took the top spot for the week on PlayStation 4, and its Vita version took the number two spot. Hardware sales remained relatively unchanged from last week.

An obscure countdown began recently on Persona 5's website, and is due to end on May 5th, at 8:30 AM eastern time. The countdown clock will end with a live broadcast themed around the game, Atlus has announced, that will start as soon as the clock hits zero. There's no further information on what the broadcast will entail, but many fans are eagerly awaiting an official release date. The current release window is Summer 2016 for Japan, and an even more vague 2016 window for western audiences.

This year has been an interesting one for trademarks, including everything from Nintendo "quality of life" products to mysterious game names from Sony like Days Done. But Sony apparently is not stopping there, with their Sony Computer Entertainment Europe branch registering a trademark for "The Sentinel." The listing doesn't give much information, but we do know it was classified as a game, with possible online functions.

Currently, the name is only registered within the European Union, but with E3 coming up it's possible more information is coming.

Fans of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic books and TV shows have been enjoying a more interactive experience for the past four years thanks to Telltale's episodic video game adaptation. Recently, fans have been sinking their teeth into the Michonne miniseries, but they are eagerly anticipating the release of the main series' third season, which Telltale has confirmed for a 2016 release. Now, creator Robert Kirkman has shared some new details on what fans can expect going into Season 3. According to Kirkman, this season will line up more with what's going on in the comics, which means that Clementine will likely be a few years older. Head inside for more.

Atlus announced PlayStation 3/PlayStation 4 exclusive Persona 5 nearly four years ago, and the eagerly-anticipated game will finally be launching later this year, both in Japan and in the West. In the meantime, Atlus is teasing something for the upcoming RPG, but it's hard to say what. A countdown labeled "Take Your Heart" has appeared on the official website, and it's ticking down the time until May 5th. No other clues or details are available at this time, but it's possible that we could finally be getting an exact release date. We'll keep you up to date as more information surfaces!

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was a rather disappointing week for the market. Only three new titles (all on PlayStation 4) managed to crack the top twenty, and none of them came anywhere close to selling even 10,000 copies at launch. Yo-kai Sangokushi retained the top spot with just over 40,000 sales. Hardware sales were equally disappointing, with every console selling worse than last week except for Wii U, which jumped from just under 5,000 units sold to just over 6,000. No consoles managed to sell over 25,000 units this week. You can check out the full breakdown by clicking below.

Ever since Telltale Games announced the miniseries at The Game Awards last year, fans have been clamoring to play The Walking Dead: Michonne in its entirety; now, with the release of the game's final episode coming next week, they will have the opportunity to do just that.

Telltale has announced that the third and final episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne, titled What We Deserve, will launch on April 26th. They also released a recap video of the previous episode, which you can watch after the jump; it is spoiler-heavy, so you won't want to watch it if you haven't played Episode 2 yet!

Sony has let us know that they will be carrying out maintenance on the PlayStation Network today, April 18th. From 9:30 PM PST to 11:30 PM PST you will not be able to access your Account Management, PlayStation Video, or the PlayStation Store. You will, however, still be able to sign into your PSN profile and play games and use most applications during the maintenance time.

Sony said they "apologize for any inconvenience" but they must "perform essential maintenance and implement feature enhancements." The company has been carrying out these maintenance procedures regularly since the PSN was hacked at the beginning of the year. Thankfully they are quick and don't interrupt players too much.
