Trailer 2: Time Hollow

This trailer shows a lot more gameplay than the previous trailer. We can see that you need to draw on the scene to reveal clues of some kind.

We're still not sure what to make of it but we'll keep an eye on it...

Echochrome demo released

A Japanese demo of the upcoming headache making puzzle game Echochrome was released today which consists of 3 full levels and 5 tutorial sessions. The demo can be picked up on the PSP Demo Center or the official Japanese Echochrome website. The game sees you manipulating the level to try and get your character to retrieve all of the shadows. The level can be rotated to block out obstacles, or use them to your advantage, for example, blocking a gap with a pillar.

Disgaea heads to the DS

The Playstation exclusive JSRPG giant is no longer exclusive to the Playstation family. This week's Famitsu magazine in Japan has shown that Disgaea will be released on the DS, confirming a lot of rumours that have been hitting the gaming news sites for a while. The only thing that has been revealed though is that the translated title is Disgaea DS: Prince of the Demon World and the Red Moon. More news as it comes through, but for now, DS owners can rejoice!
