[Replay] GK Live Tokyo Xanadu

La section Import reprend du service pour vous présenter l’une des sorties les plus importantes du mois de septembre au Japon, nul autre que Tokyo Xanadu. Le dernier jeu en date de Falcom (Ys, Trails in the Sky) a d’ailleurs connu un joli succès sur son sol, dépassant même le dernier PES en popularité la semaine de sa sortie. Lointaine héritière d’une lignée de jeux vieille de trente ans, cette exclusivité Vita emprunte de nombreux codes des jeux actuels, qu’ils viennent de Falcom ou d’ailleurs. Impossible par exemple de ne pas évoquer Persona avec l’alternance entre vie estudiantine le jour et exploration de donjons la nuit. Un concept que vous résument Greg et Puyo, penchés sur leur Vita TV.Remerciements habituels…

Your PS4 Can Now Use Any USB Controller, Thanks To Cyber Gadget’s New Adapter

Still salty Sony and Microsoft didn’t add compatibility with your Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 arcade joysticks and racing wheels to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? There may finally be a solution within your grasp.

Japanese peripherals company Cyber Gadget has revealed a new universal controller adapter for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

For 8,500 yen, or $ 70, you can connect a Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, USB PlayStation 2, or any USB controller, to connect to the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. The adapter is a wee little device at 22 grams and 13.6 cm long, with a 7 cm cable.

It won’t connect via Bluetooth, so this is the reason the Wii U Pro Controller isn’t included, but of course if you have it, you can try connecting a Pro Controller using its own USB adapter.

In any case, this is more likely most useful to folks who had 7th generation peripherals like racing wheels and arcade sticks. Fighting games in particular enjoyed a resurgence in the last generation thanks to Street Fighter 4, and many core fighting game fans were left saddled with incompatible PS3 and Xbox 360 sticks.

If you’re one of those folks, you can import yours from Cyber Gadget here. They will start shipping October 12.

Shovel Knight Retail Update: Xbox One Version Cancelled, Price And Release Date Changes, And More

Yacht Club has announced a litany of changes to the pending retail release of Shovel Knight.  The biggest surprise of it all: the Xbox One version has been cancelled.

Yacht Club seems to mirror Activision’s statement on Call of Duty Black Ops 3 being pulled from preorder digitally. They explain this stems from Microsoft’s policies, and they cannot change anything about it. This time, Yacht Club can’t honor preorders for this version. While they say they will still try to make it happen, they are now pointing Xbox One owners to buy it digitally.

Also having to wait a little longer is the Vita version. If Yacht Club manages to make it happen, it won’t be in time for this holiday, but they are working it out with Sony.

Now, for all remaining platforms, namely, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, Wii U, and 3DS, they have moved the release date to November 3 in North America and October 30 in Europe, and raised the price to $ 24.99.

The price change unfortunately stems from real life issues with retail shelving, but the good side is they are raising the value of the physical version. Yacht Club managed to squeeze in all of Plague of Shadows into the disc, and will also bundle it with a digital download copy of the soundtrack.

Finally, there is a non-announcement for the Shovel Knight amiibo, as they still haven’t finalized release details. Yacht Club can’t even confirm if they will allow for preorders, but they are considering it. Give the high potential demand, and the possibility this will run out quickly, it may be for the best.


Giant NES Controller Made of LEGOs

Julius von Brunk, an electrical artist and engineer, has created a new version of his giant, functional, LEGO-made NES controller, which he has called the “Mk.II Edition.” Check it out in action in the video below with commentary and an explanation of how he built it in the video below.

The “Mk.II Edition” builds on the “Mk.I Edition” von Brunk made in 2013. Citing “flak form the gaming community for using sticker labels as opposed to LEGO pieces for the exterior,” von Brunk has rebuilt that exterior, including the Nintendo logo and the select and start button labels, to be completely made of LEGOs.

Von Brunk has also installed a new Arduino circuit inside the controller, which he says is “much sturdier,” that the previous setup. The downside to the Arduino circuit is that it cannot interface with “authentic Nintendo Entertainment Systems.” Instead, the controller will only work with computers and can play NES games via emulators installed on said computer.

The controller was displayed at last month’s A Video Game Con.

If a giant, functional NES controller made out of LEGOs doesn’t tickle your fancy, maybe this Street Fighter-inspired Hadoken plushie will. It’s 14 inches of pure fireball cuteness. Or how about these geeky video game sweaters? Both are available just in time for the holidays!

Marvel Heroes 2015 begins adding ‘All-New, All-Different Marvel’ content tomorrow

The Marvel Universe is about to change forever. (Alright, it’s about to change forever again.) This time, the big change sees the comic book universe changing over to the ‘All-New, All-Different Marvel,’ with the comics fast-forwarding eight months after the events of the recent Secret Wars event, an event that isn’t set to finish until December. Nevertheless, Gazillion is looking to keep up with these changes and is offering up new content based on the All-New, All-Different Marvel for Marvel Heroes 2015 starting tomorrow.

One of the biggest additions will be the arrival of Spider-Gwen as a Team-Up partner. For those unfamiliar, this is an alternate universe version of Gwen Stacy, in which she actually became that universe’s Spider-Man, while Peter Parker became the Lizard and was killed, putting a huge twist on the traditional Peter/Gwen dynamic that has been in place for decades. Spider-Gwen immediately resonated with readers and has become one of Marvel’s hottest new titles.

Marvel Heroes 2015 will also add a new Captain Marvel costume, based on Carol Danvers’ new look that’s set to debut soon in Captain Marvel #1. The changes actually won’t stop there. Carol Danvers will no longer be “Ms. Marvel” in the game, but will now go by the Captain Marvel moniker on a permanent basis. The new costume will now be her default.

Still looking for more? How about the new Thor? Comic book readers found out recently that the new Thor floating around the Marvel Universe is actually long-time supporting character Jane Foster. Now she’ll become playable with tomorrow’s update, with a new costume. The new Thor will be voiced by veteran voice actress Jennifer Hale.

Other additions include costume changes for Wolverine and the Scarlet Witch, which will reflect the big changes in their books. The former will change Wolverine to the former X-23, who has taken up the mantle in the comics in the wake of Logan’s death. The Scarlet Witch costume will reflect the one that appears in her upcoming solo series.

More All-New, All-Different Marvel changes will hopefully be in the pipeline, given that Marvel Heroes 2015 has been great about staying faithful to the books. Look for more changes to come soon as the game formally transitions to Marvel Heroes 2016.
