|DOA producer Hayashi confirms they are making latest entry of DOAX|
During today's Dead or Alive Festival, producer Hayashi has confirmed that they are indeed making the latest entry of the DOAX series.
Rough translation of what Hayashi said:
"There is a game where female DOA characters are having a vacation at south island. Fans having been asking for that game. It is actually the number 1 request from the fans. I have been acting as if I was ignoring these requests. But we have actually begun developing that game, the latest installment. It's still very early in development so we can't give more details, but I want to announce today that we are making the game."

|'Dramatic changes' and Advent Children will help shape the Final Fantasy VII Remake|
Sorry, fans of Square Enix's Active Time Battle system, but it sounds like the Final Fantasy VII Remake is going a different direction for its combat. Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine, game director Tetsuya Nomura said that the team will be making "dramatic changes" to the game's fights. "And of course, that being said we want to clarify: We’re not going to be changing it into a shooter or something like that. We are going to be bringing dramatic changes, but we want to make sure it’s still recognizable."
If the thought of something different-but-kinda-the-same brought to mind the 2005 film Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, you're not too far off from Nomura's own thinking. Nomura stated that the team will be looking to the movie - which Nomura also directed - for visual references and inspiration, but that he and his team "don’t intend on utilising the 3D models of Advent Children as is because, well, it’s a different technology, and it’s actually been almost ten years since Advent Children was first released."
Wait, has it really been 10 years since Advent Children? Quick, someone start a petition for Square Enix to give us an Advent Children Remake!
|Fairy Fencer F hits Steam August 4th!|
Grab a sword and fight for your fate! Fairy Fencer F™ is coming to Steam on August 4! Originally available on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, this RPG is now getting the 1080p treatment so you can Fairize with flair. Two free DLCs will also be made available at launch – “Beginner’s Pack” and “Secrets of Shukesoo's Tower Pack” – to aid you in your quest to save the world.
About the game
Long ago, a war was waged between the Vile God and the Goddess. Both forces were equally matched, and sealed each other into another world using a special weapon imbued with their powers. And so, time passed. The weapons that the Goddess and the Vile God left were called "Furies," and those who used them were called "Fencers.“ Furies were rumored to grant any wish to those who collected them all, and because of those rumors, Fencers were constantly in battle against each other to collect the Furies. By chance, a young man named Fang came to save a girl named Tiara, who turned out to be a
Fencer. From that day forward, Fang found himself an important part of the battle between the Vile God and the Goddess.
• More Flash & Flair! - The world of Fencers and fairies gets updated with a 1080p graphic overhaul! Fairizing never looked so good.
• Really Reluctant Hero - With a hero more interested in his next meal and a fairy partner who will have none of it, this saving-the-world narrative is injected with oodles of madcap humor!
• High Tension! - Increase the Tension gauge in battle by dealing and receiving damage. The higher it is, the more damage you’ll dish. Once it’s high enough, you’ll be able to Fairize – combining with your fairy to create a super-powerful form!
• Fairy’s Fate - Find fairies to join you in your quest – only they can grant you special abilities, and by leveling them up you’ll also increase your effect radius in…
• World-Shaping! - Pull Furies from the Goddess and Vile God and place your fairies in them. You can then stab those Furies into the world map for new effects in nearby dungeons like EXP boosts or enemy changes - be careful though, because not all effects are good!
