Trailer: Official Patapon trailer [Updated]

The official Patapon website had a huge update recently, and includes a new video of the game. Unfortunately, it took me a few attempts to finally watch it all from the site (thank goodness for VideoLAN). From what I could see though, there was a lot to do and a lot to think about. The game is released in Japan on 20th December 2007. A February release is rumoured for Europe.

To get to the trailer, go to the website, click "Enter", then click the special menu (hover over the bottom part of the pop-up to see the menu) and click Movie. Good luck loading it!

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings release date fully set

More news from the RPG giants, Square-Enix as they fully confirmed the release date for FFXII: Revenant Wings. The game was already set for a 2008 release in Europe but now it looks to be coming on February 15th 2008. Start planning some time off!

It's a Wonderful World when Square-Enix like Europe

You heard that right everyone. It's A Wonderful World is approaching Europe in Spring 2008. Except it's not going to be called that. Nope, it's instead going to be called "The World Ends With You".

Ugh. Oh well, at least it's coming. I was a little worried when things went quiet...

Last week (26th November to 2nd December)

Well, in comparison to last week's "last week", this won't take very long.

The week started with a 30 second teaser of Fragile, a new post apocolyptic RPG for the Wii. Then came news of Coded Soul coming to the PSP, with hints of a link-up to PS3's Folklore. Then we had a slew of releases from the UK.

Arguably the biggest news of the week was the announcement that Square-Enix were bringing over Odin Sphere for the Europeans in early 2008. This 2D-ish RPG, while criticised for its slowdown during major battles, has been receiving a lot of praise for the graphical style and gameplay. Finally, there was the introduction video from Yggdra Union for the PSP. Although, you shouldn't be seduced by the graphics exhibited in the trailer, I don't mind if you get seduced by the music which is the best I've heard from a trailer for a while.
