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.

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.

The official PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection lineup was just shown on the PlayStation Blog, and now we're waiting for them to show up on PlayStation Network.

Two of the games are under Sony's Cross-Buy initiative, which are PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, and Velocity 2X on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. This free-for-all of the PlayStation universe plays a lot like Smash Bros., and is sure to be a good time, whereas Velocity 2X is going to please the fans who got the original game through PlayStation Plus on their PS Vitas just a few months ago, myself included.

The news that we've gotten of what may possibly be the most hyped game this year, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, has been scarce since E3. After getting a video on the various new uses of the famous cardboard box, presented by Hideo Kojima himself at Gamescom 2014, any info of the new game has been virtually non-existent. Thankfully, Kojima will be talking more about The Phantom Pain at this upcoming Tokyo Game Show. To read more about how much of a tease Kojima is, click below!

As were reported yesterday, the Mighty No. 9 beta kicks off this month, and we've already got some footage of the game in action. This new beta footage shows off the Military Base level from start to finish, including a battle against Mighty No. 5, AKA Battalion. This war-loving military bot has guns, missiles, and even a giant explosive that takes up half the screen. It looks like bosses will keep you on your toes in Mighty No. 9! You can check out all the new footage by clicking below!

Guillermo Del Toro, the famous film maker that brought us Pan's Labyrinth and Pacific Rim, among others, recently spoke about the controversial new Silent Hill game and its "playable teaser." In a conference prior to Sony’s Tokyo Game Show, Del Toro promised that he and Hideo Kojima, who is the game's second creative powerhouse, will deliver something "better than anything we’ve done before."

Whether or not this is to be believed depends on whom you ask. People from both the movie camp and the gaming camp have extremely polarized and extremely mixed reactions to literally every single ingredient of this—Del Toro, Kojima and Silent Hill. While Del Toro sports almost universal praise in his horror department, his recent mega hit Pacific Rim has had a lot of mixed reactions. Kojima is everyone's favorite gaming lunatic whose controversies and design styles need little introduction.

Hot off the company's pre-TGS press conference, Sony has announced it isn't quite finished with news for the Asian market. 

SCEJA President Atsushi Morita announced plans for another press conference for the company coming later this month. The Asia-focused briefing will take place on September 17th. It's likely that this will also be livestreamed, although we've yet to hear any details.

This is when we get to hear about The Last Guardian. I swear on Uncle Ben's grave.

Stay tuned for details!

The Japanese gaming industry has been uncharacteristically slow as of late, but new Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia president Atsushi Morita has a plan to bring some life back into it. Yesterday, his first day on the job, he will be "trying to really bring the momentum on to the gaming industry here in Japan." He said Sony Computer Entertainment Japan will be listening to fans and challenging ideas to strengthen the market, and presumably sell a few PlayStation 4s while they're at it.

In Koei Techmo's eternal quest for making everything into a Warriors game, they have teamed up with Square Enix for a Dragon Quest flavored hack-and-slash. Like Hyrule Warriors, Dragon Quest Heroes is keeping to its title-franchise's art style, keeping closely to the aesthetic of Akira Toriyama that Dragon Quest is so famous for. In the trailer Square released, four of the playable characters were shown off, but knowing these games there will be more to come. It will be released sometime next year in Japan. There's no hint of an international release just yet, but this is only the first announcement.

Since GTA V was released back in September 2013, it has become the fastest-selling entertainment product in history. It was no surprise, then, that there would be a remake for the new slew of next-generation consoles. However, there was a rumor circulating around the internet that developer Rockstar Games would not be able to deliver on a 2014 release.
