In the past few weeks we have started learning more about these features and later this week we will learn even more about them.

The Famitsu Official website has confirmed earlier today that more details on Odin Sphere Leifthrasir’s new item synthesis and character specific skills will be included in this week’s issue of the magazine.

With the game releasing in the next few months in Japan, new details on the Odin Sphere Leifthrasir Japanese pre-order bonuses have been coming in the past few weeks. Some of the pre-order bonuses for the PlayStation Vita version look especially interesting. We have no idea if the same extras will be offered as bonuses for the Western release but we should hear more about the matter as soon as a final release date for North America and Europe is confirmed.

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is the remake of Odin Sphere, originally released on PlayStation 2 years ago. The new version of the game will come with several new gameplay features and mechanics that will spice up the experience considerably, alongside enhanced graphics and more. Also included in the game will be a Classic Mode which will allow players to play the game without the new gameplay additions of the enhanced port.

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will be released in Japan this January on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game has been confirmed for the West but a precise release date has yet to be revealed. We will keep you updated on the matter as soon as more comes in on it so stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming Vanillaware developed game.

For individuals who may not recall, the Year 2000 Problem, commonly referred to as the Y2K scare, was a thrilling period of chaos experienced in the late 90s. There was widespread concern about a potential catastrophic computing disaster due to discrepancies in dating systems. Today, we had the opportunity to experience some unexpected events as EA and Square Enix faced technical difficulties due to the leap year, causing their games to be temporarily unplayable.

Players of EA’s Sports WRC encountered a problem on the 29th where they couldn’t start the game because of a timezone glitch. The issue was promptly fixed, but users had to adjust their system settings for the next day to play. Meanwhile, Square Enix is facing challenges, with the problem only impacting Nintendo players and not PlayStation users. The Theatrythm Final Bar Line failing to start up ruined the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

In Helldivers 2, players will find themselves in need of additional firepower to spread freedom across the galaxy. Arrowhead Game Studios announced that armored mechs will be included in the game for free shortly after its release. Leaked gameplay footage on social media suggests that heavy armor support is on its way.

IGN showcased a few clips, with the first one being shared by Redditor fozzye18, featuring a Helldiver piloting a mech equipped with what appears to be twin-linked autocannons. It’s important to note that in another clip shared by Redditor Klyka, we witness a mech equipped with a gatling gun and rockets, hinting at the possibility of various strategy versions for these machines.

A clip from TikTok ponders the possibility of a different outcome at the famous Malevelon Creek, where the Helldivers community faced a significant defeat against the Socialist Automatons.

Mechs… enjoy

To fully experience Nacon’s upcoming social racer Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown, an Internet connection is required. The new trailer reveals the off-road areas of Hong Kong Island, highlighting the diverse experiences offered in the upcoming game. It also emphasizes the MMO features that have been integral to the franchise.

“While driving, there are always other players surrounding you, which brings the city to life,” a press release discloses. “In Test Drive Unlimited, players can immerse themselves in the world of cars through interactions at dealerships and workshops, discussing future purchases, dream cars, and customization options.”

Undoubtedly, there is a trade-off with the need for a constant online connection to support various social features such as leaderboards, races, inventories, moderation, live events, anti-cheat measures, and the overall game experience. You need an Internet connection to play Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown.

As expected for an online-focused game, players will need to rely on Nacon’s servers and PSN.

Nevertheless, it appears that the racing game is making significant progress. In a recent development update, the team highlighted their ongoing efforts to enhance the particle effects for off-road gameplay. They are currently facing challenges in recreating the expansive dust clouds seen in their WRC games within a shared-world sandbox environment. “We are currently in the process of integrating and optimizing these effects,” it concedes. “It is a crucial aspect of off-road immersion, yet it also demands a lot of resources and performance.”

It appears that the game is nearing its final stages. The team is taking their time to guarantee that Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown provides a seamless, stable, and enjoyable experience for players. It has been brought to our attention that we need to ensure the game meets your expectations before release. We are currently focused on improving various aspects, such as enhancing server stability and optimizing the game’s performance.
