Have you been looking at the Wii U line-up and thinking there aren’t enough titles that let you hack people’s limbs off? Well, you might have a few issues, but at least Tecmo Koei want to indulge you, as Ninja Gaiden Sigma 3: Razor’s Edge brings back the butchery after the PS3/360 versions were criticised for toning down the violence. As well as being a bit rubbish.
Ryu will be getting a host of new weapons in the Wii U version including a heavy staff and a demented new fangled weapon that from what we can tell (it moves very fast) is something sharp and nasty on the end of a chain. Ayane makes an appearance too as an exclusive playable character with her own missions.
Despite the game being a launch title in the states, we won’t be seeing it until January 11th. Looks like we’ll have to settle for Zombi U for our launch day bloodletting. Check out the new trailer for Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge after the break.

By this time next week, you’ll be rubbing your thumbs after the first of many intense nights’ racing with Need for Speed: Most Wanted. EA’s launch trailer is making the wait for Criterion’s open-world racer all the more unbearable.
Matt recently had a chinwag with Matt Webster, the game’s executive producer and you can read that interview here. Jon has an E3 preview for you too. Click through for the launch trailer and check-in again soon for our review.

The Super Monkey Ball series hasn’t really found a home since the days of the GameCube. But from the looks of this new launch trailer, the PS Vita may be a perfect match for the series.
Featuring optional tilt controls, lots of touchscreen elements and a grand selection of minigames and local and online multiplayer modes this looks very promising. You don’t need me to tell you that everything’s better with monkeys. And this has Monkey flippin’ Bingo. Aces.
Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz is out on the PS Vita now and you can see the trailer by clicking the link below.

Attendees of yesterday’s Golden Joystick Awards were privy to an exclusive new Hitman: Absolution trailer. While a little light on gameplay, it ramps up the excitement with a cinematic build-up as we edge closer to the game’s release. OPM and OXM are the only publications with reviews so far and they both score the game 9/10 ahead of the November 20th release.
We’re super excited for Agent 47’s return, check out Jon’s hands-on preview to see why. Enjoy the trailer after the jump.

The latest trailer for LittleBigPlanet Karting gives us a glimpse into the story thanks to a bit of narration from one Stephen Fry. There’s plenty of gameplay on show too, which might get you interested in the new kart racer coming from United Front Games, the studio behind ModNation Racers. Check out Matt’s hands-on preview while you’re here.

Ok folks, it’s early Sunday morning, October 21st, which means one thing, the new Bioshock Infinite trailer is finally here. Entitled The Beast of America, this is the video that was teased with a countdown timer on facebook where fans were able to choose from what they wanted to see more of. Elizabeth or Booker? Handymen or Songbird? What did they go for in the end? Click through to find out. You won’t be disappointed. Prepare to go nuts with questions at the first image too.

This is more like it, a trailer that shows continuous uninterrupted gameplay as opposed to flashily edited footage using multiple angles. This is how the game will look when you’re playing it. Frankly, it’s made us want it even more as this really could fill that Burnout sized hole we’ve had in our hearts since 2008.
There seems to be a lot of information on screen at once, which could prove to be a distraction, especially the options we glimpsed showing how you can adjust impact protection settings and the like. The event we see looks intense enough as it is. While trying to track down an opponent we’re flying through the huge environment trying to lose the cops by beating speed traps and slamming through barricades too. So far, this may be the most appropriately titled game in the series. Continue reading Lose The Cops In Latest Need For Speed: Most Wanted Gameplay Trailer
Two whole months to go until Far Cry 3 is released and each trailer just makes the wait even worse. This new video introduces us to Buck, an Aussie nutcase that we get the feeling may even turn out to be worse than Vaas. The action shows us more tantalising glimpses of the island from land, sea and air. With the environments looking as gorgeous as they are, we’re hoping the game will start a trend for not basing your game in industrial estates and office blocks. More trees, more beaches, more sun and definitely more tigers in everything from now on please. Continue reading New Far Cry 3 Savages Trailer Increases ‘Want’ Factor
Fans of old-school scrolling beat ‘em ups should fix their eyes all over this new Code of Princess trailer. Featuring some terrific-looking action that’s very reminiscent of games like Guardian Heroes, this melee combat-heavy RPG is coming out October 10th in North America. Sadly, no date has been confirmed yet for Europe, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for you. Continue reading Code Of Princess Trailer For The 3DS
Ever wondered how Traveller’s Tales would cope when tasked with making a Lego game that didn’t have a huge film license behind it? Better than ever it would seem. This cheesy cops and robbers caper borrows from classic crime movies and looks set to be packed with nods and references to San Francisco-based flicks and the Dirty Harry bit towards the end of the trailer is just one of numerous funny moments during the two-minute peak at the Wii U exclusive.
Characters are fully voiced, just as we recently saw in Lego Batman 2, which will allow for a proper story and will keep the laughs coming throughout. An early look at how the Game Pad will be used shows the player using the screen to scan the TV to look for heat signatures from hiding crims on a sunny rooftop.
Helicopters, ambulances and boats are shown off around the sun kissed city indicating a few extra Civil Servant duties may be on the cards. This might be the closest we get to a Lego GTA game, albeit on the right side of the law. Mind you, what’s that fella doing with a crow bar? Even Lego misbehaves at times it would seem.

We’re already getting used to seeing Wii U versions of existing games that chuck in the odd new mode or control scheme but this new trailer shows off loads of new environments for the upcoming Trine 2: Director’s Cut. We want it now.
The scenes shown in the trailer show desert sandworms, dragons and underground ruins, none of which were included in the original release. The graphics themselves are some of the best we’ve seen on the Wii U console too.
This is only a teaser trailer really, so we don’t get to see how the Wii U’s Game Pad will be used specifically in the game, but we imagine players controlling the wizard will be able to use it to move objects around with the touch-screen while the thief and knight characters are controlled with regular controllers.

The Wii U announcements are coming thick and fast now as momentum builds for the new console. This new trailer shows off various costume changes for the Tekken gang. So far, we’re seeing suits from the Mario, Zelda, Star Fox and Metroid games, with more to surely follow.
The trailer also shows a new Mushroom Battle mode where fighters grow or shrink depending on which power-up they get.

A new developer diary has emerged for the upcoming Lord of the Rings Online DLC, Riders of Rohan. The video shows off an impressive number of gorgeous looking environments, some familiar from the films and others brand new.
Rather than stick to the plains, the Rohan DLC will also allow you to explore Fangorn Forest and the Anduin River. And what better way to explore this new world than with your new customisable horse? Long-time players of the game will also be grateful for the Level Cap increase, which is now at Lv.85.
Check out the video after the jump.

It’s Metal Gear, so forget any notions of a twenty second teaser video, here’s nearly 11 minutes to shove your face into. You’ll get to see cutscenes and a bit of gameplay too. The FOX Engine is looking pretty damn good as we see snake infiltrate a base in a rainy night. Nobody seems to have told Konami that this generation’s hardware is on its last legs.

Not to be outdone by the return of Lightning, new signs of life emerge from Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn. At today’s 25th Anniversary event for the Final Fantasy series new in-game screenshots were released along with a new trailer.
The original FFXIV was something of a disaster on PC, leading to Square-Enix deciding to pull back and essentially start again, hence the Reborn part of the title. Old assets have been scrapped to ensure everything looks as new as possible as graphical standards have moved on since the original release. That and almost everything attached to the old game was broken.
Have a good nosey at the images after the jump and don’t forget to click them if you want to see enlarged versions. There’s a new trailer too, which almost makes us want to forgive the original’s shoddiness. It’s reassuring to see a PS3 logo at the end of the trailer too as you’d be forgiven for thinking Square-Enix had sacked off those plans. Saying that, is anyone taking bets it will end up being a PS4 game?

Fancy getting to play Marvel Heroes before anyone else? Of course you do. Coming from the creator of Diablo, Marvel Heroes is an upcoming multiplayer action RPG that will also be free-to-play. Featuring a host of Marvel favourites such as Wolverine, Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor and Iron Man, things are heating up for one of the hottest titles money can’t buy.
The news was part of the new announcements at PAX 2012, where the developers took the chance to reveal the latest additions to the roster: Punisher, Daredevil and erm… Squirrel Girl. Check out the new trailer after the break.
We got our hands on the game at Gamescom recently and can’t wait to play more. To find out how to stand a chance of getting into the closed beta just click the link below.

For those of you tired of military shooters, feast your eyes on the gorgeous Far Cry 3. Rather than focus on Vaas telling us All about his ‘insanity’ for a change we get a real good look around the two main islands that will be used for the single player campaign of the game.
Lush jungles -complete with wildlife ranging from birds, komodo dragons and tigers- are amongst the most detailed ever seen on a console. It sort of makes Just Cause 2 look like something spewed out on Blue Peter. An early look at some of the underground ruin areas shows a new side to the game and gives it something of an Uncharted FPS feel. Or imagine Skyrim’s tombs actually looking like something on a current-generation machine (sorry, burned PS3 gamer here).
Jet skis, hang gliders, jeeps and quads are given a brief showing. Nasty nature seems keen to eat your face as we see close encounters with tigers and sharks. Wrapping a bandage around your arm or pulling a dislocated thumb back into place are shown too, not that any of those will be applicable to getting out of a shark’s stomach.
Far Cry 3 is climbing up our most wanted lists at an alarming rate.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance star, Raiden has been added to the upcoming multiplayer brawler, SuperSmash PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. He’s the latest third-party All-Star to be added to the ranks and it looks like he’s not going to make Sackboy’s life any easier thanks to him packing some deadly blade attacks.
I raised some concerns with my Gamescom Hands-On Preview that characters with swords seemed to significantly out-balance everyone else in the game and this video shows Raiden going along with that theory nicely. Hot damn he’s looking pretty badass though. With his Special attacks displaying killer moves like spinning heel blades, a stun attack slice-fest and a merciless charge on competitors trying to hide in cardboard boxes.
Other recent inclusions that you may have missed are Nariko (Heavenly Sword), Evil Cole (inFamous) and Sir. Daniel (MediEvil). But will any of them be able to stand up against the seemingly unbeatable Kratos?
