Fans of Japanese strategy games rejoice! Koei Tecmo confirmed that the latest installment of their Strategy/Historical Simulation series, Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence, is coming to North America.

A couple weeks ago, folks over at Wololo.net had discovered Brazilian mod chip stores offering pirated retail games for PS4 consoles. Most people cried false, and with some news trickling from Brazilian sources it's becoming more and more likely it's legitimate...and now, a Brazilian news site UOL Jogos, has confirmed the PS4 "hacks" are indeed real!
PLEASE NOTE: AT THIS TIME, THERE IS NO USER-AVAILABLE PS4 HACK. SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS ON HOW THIS "HACK" IS PERFORMED.
Unfortunately, these methods don't break any encryption on the PS4, so at this time all that's allowed is purely pirated content, no homebrew. Definitely a shame, and it's almost a guarantee Sony will end up fixing these "hacks" soon, but at least it's a start.
Originally released in 2004 for the PS2 and ported for smartphones last year, the eighth installment of the Dragon Quest JRPG series is now finally coming to the 3DS, Square Enix announced. Currently only a Japanese release date is set on 27th August 2015. No word yet on a western localisation.
The game won't be a straight port as it will have the following exclusive additions:
- Brand new scenario
- New party characters ( female thief Garuda and Morrie from Dragon Quest: Monster Battle Road)
- Voice-overs of the game's events
- Orchestral soundtrack
- StreetPass support
Developed by Ubisoft Quebec in collaboration with eight other Ubisoft studios*, Assassin's Creed Syndicate is an epic single player experience set in London during the height of the Industrial Revolution, an incredible age of invention that transforms the lives of millions. During this time, the gap between the poor and the rich expands exponentially, making workers' lives little more than legalised slavery. The lower classes fight for survival by forming a new kind of family – gangs – and adapting to life in the criminal underworld. Players will embody both Jacob Frye and Evie Frye, twin Assassins raised to follow the Creed. Jacob, a determined, hot-headed and rebellious leader of an underground gang, is vastly different than his sister Evie, a master of stealth and control. Together, Jacob and Evie team up to challenge rivals, plutocrats and Templars alike to free the masses from poverty and corruption, and, ultimately, wrestle back control of London.
In Assassin's Creed Syndicate, players explore the largest, most modern open-world city ever created in an Assassin's Creed game. The fighting is more brutal than ever, as players combat rival gangs and grow their sphere of influence throughout London using new weapons, including brass knuckles, a kukri knife, a revolver and the Assassin's gauntlet. Assassin's Creed Syndicate also includes innovative navigation and transportation throughout the open world, including a rope launcher for scaling tall Victorian buildings, zip-lining from rooftop to rooftop or performing aerial assassinations, and horse-drawn carriages and high-speed trains for free-running, tracking down enemies or escaping after daring raids.
"The ability to lead an underground gang, commandeer any vehicle on hand and use modern tools to take on an expansive and fast-paced Victorian London sets this game apart," said Marc-Alexis Côté, Creative Director at Ubisoft. "Assassin's Creed Syndicate has been in development for more than two years and this new modern take on the living open world will please Assassin's Creed fans and newcomers alike."
