The PS2's library is about to get a bit more toxic, as Atlus announced that it will localize Japan's Poison Pink in North America, calling the strategy RPG by the less interesting title, Eternal Poison. In typical Atlus fashion, the game looks decidedly niche, though if its promise of "a uniquely d...

RPGs, by definition, are immersive – hence the name "role-playing game." Yet, the existence of the fourth wall in video games is an obstacle when it comes to such follies, so the software must rely on a number of charms to keep the player engrossed. The story is often the driving force behind...

No one told us it was licensed game week. Amidst all the movie property-influenced titles, try not to miss Summon Night: Twin Age if you're interested in it -- it'll be the one with fewer copies at your local gaming store, most likely. Gotta have space for Kung Fu Panda, after all. The Incredi...

We realized today that we don't know Japan as well as we thought we did. With our reasoning, a new Gundam game + the popularity of the DS = cha-ching. While the debuting Emblem of Gundam had decent sales for its first week, though, taking the twelfth spot isn't all that impressive -- especially sinc...

Not only did the PSP gain momentum with the hideous brown, er, we mean shiny bronze model that released in Japan last week, but the Wii also beat out its portable cousin, sending the DS to third place in hardware sales: PSP: 92,411 Wii: 48,796 Nintendo DS: 42,435 PlayStation 3: 9,10...

Summon Night: Twin Age may be coming out two weeks later than expected, but at least you can look at the new screenshots in our gallery. Looking at the brightly-colored action RPG will allow you to imagine what it will be like to play using the stylus-based controls. You can stare dreamily at the sc...

Summoning Summon Night: Twin Age into North American stores is proving to take longer than expected for publisher Atlus. When the localization of the stylus-controlled ARPG spinoff was first announced, it was given a release date of May 20th. Atlus just sent a press release out stating that they've...

They hooked us up with a bunch of new screens on the game to accompany the others in our gallery, as well as the title's boxart. It's pretty much the usual business here...

Ball lightning is 1) a mysterious meteorological phenomenon, and 2) a pretty neat ability you'll be able to unlock via skill tree in Summon Night: Twin Age! We believe this to be one of Reiha's magical Summoning techniques; more importantly, we believe this to look like something fun to do to bust u...
