The next Nintendo Direct starts in about 10 minutes from the time of this posting. For the first time in a while, we’ve had more than 24-hour notice of this event, which has allowed for rumor and speculation to take place among the citizens of the Internet. I won’t go over those rumors now, since the show will start before I’m done typing. Click the link below to view our live blogging of the event while you watch the above video.

Code of Princess is one of those unique that offers players an exciting yet unconventional experience. One that deftly blends fighting mechanics with components from classic arcade side-scrolling beat’em ups, while also providing character development and customization seen in that of an RPG. A 3DS game that is meant for up to four players to take on the challenge to battle both cooperatively or against one. It provides tons of depth that can be had either locally or online via Nintendo Network.
While the story of Code of Princess is nothing more than the generic kingdom under siege, that legendary fallen monarchy, protecting a sacred blade, and a princess on the run hell bent on surviving and restoring her kingdom while in nothing more than some skimpy clothing. It looks to be that we have another solid title on the Nintendo 3DS so be sure check out the trailer which can be found after the jump. Also be sure to let us know your thoughts on Code of Princess.
After all the challenges that Yu Narukami and his friends faced during the events of Persona 4, you would think that they would have it easy after solving the mystery of the midnight channel. Fate is against them as a new threat has emerged to challenge them and everyone who is tied to a Persona.
During Golden Week, which is an awesome set of holidays in Japan, a new rumor begins to spread through the town about another mysterious TV Program called the P-1 Grand Prix. Just like the midnight channel, it is visible if you look at TV that is turned off on a rainy night. The P-1 Grand Prix is a fighting tournament which shows high school friends fighting each other to the bitter end. When Yu Narukami and the others test this rumor, they see their friend Teddie announcing the beginning of the show, and are shocked when they see their own faces introduced with twisted nicknames.
The members of the Investigation Team decide to dive into the TV once again to solve the case! What is behind the mysterious TV show?
With the subtle hint earlier in the year, it is not surprising that Atlus has announced that they are working with Ace Teams to release the sequel to the award-winning first-person melee brawler, Zeno Clash. With the climatic ending to the first game, they left it very open with tons of possibilities for a sequel.
Building upon the daring visual design and gratifying first-person fisticuffs of the acclaimed original, Zeno Clash II is bigger, bolder, and better in every way. Zenozoik comes alive like never before, an open world waiting to be explored, one rendered with breathtaking splendor. As Ghat, players can fully and freely explore every natural and architectural wonder his world has to offer. In addition to most of the characters, enemies, and items from the first game–all of which return with dramatic visual enhancement–Ghat can also expect to encounter awe-inspiring new sights, jaw-dropping new creature designs, and wildly creative new weapons and items.
Beyond the visual update to the title, they have also been working to update the brawling mechanics and the “lock-on” feature to enhance the fluidity of the games controls. As well as including a new RPG element that allow players to gain more strength, master defense, or improve in other areas in order to give Ghat and his companion Rimat a better chance of survival. Lastly they have announced the game will feature an expansive multiplayer element that will allow players to easily drop in and out of the game. Players can now be joined by his sister Rimat in battling past the angry denizens bent on stopping them from accomplishing their goal.
The game is planned to be available in early 2013 on Xbox LIVE Arcade, Sony Entertainment Network, and even Steam.
