There was a bit of a furore when The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ was released in the US for Switch but the European release was pushed back. There is now a confirmed release date, and while it's not exactly imminent it does come with some bonus news.

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ will get a physical and digital European release on the Nintendo Switch September 7th

The physical release of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ matches the US release, with a retro game manual, the game, and 2 sticker sheets. It also promises some bonus trinkets, but doesn't go into detail as to what they are

Yep, Dragon Quest Heroes 2 has been dated for Europe, with the bonus news of an official Steam confirmation

Due to arrive on Playstation 4 on 28th April, Dragon Quest Heroes 2 will hit Steam a few days earlier (the US release date if I had to guess) on 25th April.

The first game was... alright, it started well enough, and maybe if I'd carried on playing it at that point I'd have a more positive feeling towards it, but returning to it the game felt a bit of a trudge. It's generally considered that Dragon Quest Heroes 2 is the better game, so it might be one to keep an eye out for

Yeah sure, it's been out in Japan for ages, I've even got a copy on the 3DS myself, but I'm still looking forward to the western release of Puyo Puyo Tetris

Coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch, Puyo Puyo Tetris is a mashup puzzle-battle game of the two famous franchises. It works better than you might think.

There's a few issues with the release, and I'd like to take a moment to recognise it's this release or nothing, but the Playstation 4 isn't getting a digital version, and the Switch physical version is a slightly higher price, although it does come with some Puyo keyrings

Puyo Puyo Tetris release in Europe on April 28th (and in the Americas on the 25th), and will be priced at $40 for Nintendo Switch retail, $30 for Nintendo Switch digital, and $30 for PS4 physical

For the past few months we've been working on the assumption that the new Berserk game (now called Berserk and the Band of the Hawk) was coming right at the end of the year, well, not Koei Tecmo have given a firm date and it's 24th February for the EU (21st of Feb for America)

I'll admit to being slightly disappointed, I know it's only a Berserk Musu game but it was one of the few games this year I'm looking forward to. Still, better to be done right than rushed out.

I'll also admit to one of those people that hate the name. He's not Geoff Berserk, it's Guts, it should be called Berserk: The Band of the Hawk or something. Anyway, trailer below, and I hope the fairy story makes it in to the game

I love Berserk, have done for years. I remember joking with a friend that by the time Miura was done writing the Berserk manga I'd be hitting 30. Ha ha, how stupidly optimistic I was back in my pre-30 days.

Anyway, there's been activity in the Berserk world recently, new anime, manga chapters, and now a new Berserk game from Omega Force, the developers behind Dynasty Warriors

I was going to post about this when Koei Tecmo first announced Berserk, but the initial trailers were maybe not the sort of thing I wanted to post on the site. Removed from the context of the manga, or even the old anime, they depicted something that looked exploitative rather than harrowing. There is a marginally better one out now, at least it's got some gameplay, but hopefully Omega Force and Koei Tecmo do a good enough job that I don't have to continue being an apologist for Berserk when it release here later in the year on PS4, Vita and PC

Deep Silver is publishing King of Fighters 14 here in Europe, and have announced that the game will be released on the 26th August

After what can only be described as a dreadful reveal, King of Fighters 14 has won people around. As jarring as its visuals initially were, it does look like it plays like a KoF game

There's a trailer below, I'm a little fighting game'd out, but god damn I love some King of Fighters

Saga have announced that we in Europe will be getting a physical and digital release of Yakuza 0 at the same time as the US; early 2017

Obviously it's way too early to get an actual firm release date, and experience has taught us that Yakuza games get delayed, and 2017 is still most of a year away, BUT it's good news that Yakuza 0 is confirmed to be coming, and it shouldn't have a huge delay

I'm going to stress that I don't actually know what Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault is. I know that's a name, no one can accuse it of not being that, but the descriptor 'dynamic tower defence' doesn't really answer the question

However, I really liked Deathtrap and Anomaly Warzone Earth, so I'm interested in a game that does something a bit different with the tower defence formula

There's no exact release date for Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault yet, other than Q1, but it's coming to the PS4, PS3 and Vita, and it might just be worth a look

Ah, Q2, my favourite month. Reminds me of capitalism

It's also the 'date' when Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir is getting its European release, or at least so it would seem

The Americas are getting Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir on July 7th, and according to some quotes from a Playstation Blog post, reposted on Gematsu, Atlus are trying to ensure a reduced gap between releases from now on. Hopefully meaning no 18 month wait for their rpgs anymore

We knew Disgaea 5 was coming out, and we knew it was coming for the PS4, but it's nice to have a date.

Disgaea 5 will be escaping the Netherworld on October 9th, both at retail and as a PSN download

The biggest shocker of this story for me is that according to the Playstation Blog the Disgaea games have a 25-30 hour campaign, for me it was more like 100 hours+. Actually it's several years and counting as I've never actually managed to finish the first game despite starting 2 versions. Ah well maybe one day.
