While the game has yet to even hit Western shores, the lucky people of Japan have been able to experience the sheer enjoyable silliness of Persona 4: Dancing All Night, the most recent (and most likely final) spin-off of Atlus’ popular JRPG. And they still have plenty of DLC on the way, including new songs, new costumes and even a couple of new characters. However, earlier today, we’ve received word of a new and slightly unexpected new DLC character. It’s the hit virtual popstar herself, Hatsune Miku.

A popular idol in Japan, Hatsune Miku has been gradually making an impact over here in the West, having even opened up for Lady Gaga and making a guest appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. Most of you probably recognise her from her own line of rhythm-action games on the PS3 and Vita.

Hatsune Miku appearing alongside the rest of the Persona crew isn’t all that much of a surprise. Aside from having experience in the genre, Miku’s videogames are owned by Sega, of which Atlus is a subsidiary of. Also, Dingo, the developers of the Hatsune Miku games on the PSP, were originally working on Dancing All Night but this changed when the development staff was reshuffled.

Miku is a perfect fit for the game and aside from being playable, she’ll also come with a new track: a remix of Heaven where she will no doubt provide her own vocals. You can check out her fancy new design below and hopefully this will distract you from the knowledge that we still have to wait several more months for it.

Persona 4: Dancing All Night will be released in Europe, America and Australia this fall for the PS Vita.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

The photo mode in Alan Wake 2 on PS5 doesn’t hold many surprises

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
