It saddens us to say that none of us are wealthy people. If we were, we'd fund the purchase of a ludicrously expensive high-end color printer, which we would then use to print this fantastic promotional poster for Professor Layton and the Curious Village. We'd laminate it, pin it proudly to our wall...

Level-5's Inazuma Eleven gets us interested in soccer the only way anything could: by adding RPG elements and extreeeeeeme anime-ness. Seriously, we'd totally watch soccer if there were more screaming and speed lines. We haven't seen a sports RPG this fun-looking since Acclaim's cancelled Hit the I...

Yesterday, we wrote up a story on some new White Knight Story screenshots. Today, after our readers cleverly deduced our assumption regarding character customization was correct, Level 5 has issued a statement regarding that very device as well as hinting at what to expect, gameplay-wise. Shall we l...
