It's shouldn't be too surprising that Japanese gamers are anticipating Square's long awaited Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3. Both games were shown at E3 2013, but not much has been shown since. Despite that, these games still sit high on Famitsu's top five most wanted games, with Final Fantasy XV sitting at number three and Kingdom Hearts 3 placing number five. That's incredible considering that these games are even beating out titles like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Bloodborne.

Konami recently promised that there would be some "major advances" for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on display at Gamescom, and today they gave us a little more insight into what we can expect. Series creator Hideo Kojima will be showing off brand new gameplay for The Phantom Pain at Gamescom, and it's said that his goal is to showcase the power of the Fox Engine. This new gameplay footage will be live streamed as part of the Gamescom preview show hosted by Geoff Keighley. Are you excited for The Phantom Pain?

The weekly sales numbers are in for video game hardware and software in Japan, and Yokai Watch 2 continues to dominate at number one with no real threats to its position. Now in its third week, Yokai Watch 2 sold another 180,000 units this week, bringing its lifetime total to just shy of 2 million. Yoshi's New Island launched in Japan this week (months after the rest of the world) and came in second place with a respectable 58,285 units sold. 3DS and Wii U each saw slight improvements over last week's numbers, while all other consoles took a slight dip in sales. Hit the jump for the full breakdown.

According to a Swiss retailer, another Assassin's Creed title could be launching on the same day as Unity.

A World of Games listing has surfaced on the internet for a game called Assassin's Creed: Rogue; while the page has already been removed, it listed Rogue as releasing on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 28th. A last-gen Assassin's Creed game has long been rumored, and Ubisoft recently confirmed that we would be hearing more details for the title soon.

What do you guys think? Could this listing have been a leak? Sound off in the comments!

Far Cry 4 ditches the island setting of the first and third entries in the series and sends the protagonist up into the Himalayas instead. There is warfare, warlords, and, to sum it up, war. Also, a fabulously dressed Troy Baker with an anger management issue.

Ubisoft has revealed just how the world of Far Cry 4 was dreamed up by developers. Seeking inspiration from real villages and people in the Himalayas, Ubisoft has done its homework on the subject matter.

Activision has announced that a ton of players were attracted to the sneak peek of Destiny; 4.6 million people on current-generation and last-generation systems turned on the beta and explored the world(s) of Bungie's sci-fi shooter. That makes it the most successful beta for a new IP of all time.

"We were totally blown away by the number of people who played the beta. We surpassed even our own goals and the feedback was invaluable. We cannot thank the community enough, the response was humbling and in the weeks ahead we'll be working hard to ensure that Destiny lives up to the expectations at launch." — Pete Parsons, Chief Operating Officer at Bungie

Kevin Spacey is featured once again; the Academy Award nominated actor plays the leader of private corporation Atlas, a company called upon by the government to stop terrorists.
