Today, Level-5 has revealed a new trailer and gameplay footage for their recently delayed action RPG, Yo-Kai Watch 4. The footage was previously shown at Tokyo Game Show 2018. 

Both feature the game's different human protagonists, improved graphics from the previous entries, and an entirely new battle system where human characters fight alongside their Yo-Kai team. It seems similar to the gameplay seen in Level-5's Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.

In the gameplay footage, the protagonist Touma and his Yo-Kai team are seen fighting against the Jingeki boss. A new summon ability which allows Touma to transform was also shown.

Yo-Kai Watch 4 is expected to launch in Spring 2019 on Nintendo Switch in Japan. It will be the first entry in the main series to launch on Nintendo Switch instead of Nintendo 3DS. The last Yo-Kai Watch title for the Nintendo 3DS, Yo-Kai Watch 3, will launch in North America on February 8, 2019, and in Europe this winter.

TGS 2018: PS Vita Production Set To End By 2019 Fri, 21 Sep 2018 09:44:26 -0400 Zack Palm

Although TGS 2018 has started with a bang and a handful of great trailers from games like Devil May Cry 5, the Resident Evil 2 remake, and Just Cause 4, not all of the news has been happy. 

If you're a PS Vita owner, the much-maligned handheld just got dealt another blow. According to Sony, the company plans to end production on the Vita in early 2019. 

Via Engadget, the announcement came from Sony Interactive Entertainment Senior Vice President Hiroyuki Oda.

Oda confirmed the end of the Vita's production was imminent. He did not detail any additional plans for future handhelds to replace the Vita.

However, he did note the exact date when the Vita will stop production: March 31, 2019.

With no future handhelds planned, there's no word if Sony may step away from the handheld market to focus on future core PlayStation products, such as the PS5.

Although the PlayStation Vita has still been receiving releases, the handheld never took off as Sony had planned, selling only 10-15 million units since its release in 2011.

TGS 2018: Watch 20 Minutes Of Just Cause 4 Open World Gameplay Thu, 20 Sep 2018 16:50:59 -0400 QuintLyn

As this year's Tokyo Game Show carries on, gamers everywhere can expect trailers and gameplay from highly anticipated games such as Devil May Cry 5, Kingdom Hearts III, and more.

Last night, TGS attendees got a 20-minute look at the gameplay from Just Cause 4, the latest installment in the open-world franchise from Avalanche Studios. During the demo, JC4 Game Director Francesco Antolini walked panel attendees through some of the things the game has to offer.

The demo introduces Solis, a South American-inspired world that (according to Antolini) is the biggest world in the Just Cause franchise to date, as well as the most diverse.

From the start, Antolini spends time discussing the expansiveness of Solis, not only in the wide variety of terrain found there, but also some of its more dynamic content -- like sandstorms.

From there he goes on to discuss the methods players will use to traverse the map, ranging from glidesuits to fighter jets.

The gameplay demo also offers a look at the arsenal players will have access to -- as well as some of the activities available.

Now, it should be noted that this is beta demo gameplay. So some of what was shown during the TGS demo may change before the game launches in December.

TGS 2018: Resident Evil 2 Remake Trailer Shows Off Ada Wong Thu, 20 Sep 2018 16:44:46 -0400 Zack Palm

A new trailer for the Resident Evil 2 remake was released at this year's Tokyo Game Show, showcasing about two and a half minutes of the intense story and some of the nastier zombies players will likely encounter.

The trailer also shows off Ada Wong, a spy for one of Umbrella Corporation's market competitors.

The first part of this trailer dives into Claire Redfield's side of the story and what she's going to deal with as she begins to learn about the zombie outbreak infecting Raccoon City. Both her and rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy will embark on different journeys, though they will inevitably reconnect by the end of the game. 

While Ada Wong was a major highlight in the trailer, other characters were also revealed, such as Annette Birkin and Chief Officer Brian Irons. These characters will co-star alongside Claire and Leon as they meet the zombie threat head-on.

The remake for Resident Evil 2 releases on January 25, 2019, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. 

Check back soon with Gameskinny as we learn more.

TGS 2018: Watch 30 Mintues Of Kingdom Hearts III Gameplay Thu, 20 Sep 2018 16:39:32 -0400 QuintLyn

Just a few short days ago, we all got a peek at the world of Big Hero 6 as it will appear in Kingdom Hearts III. Square Enix dropped the latest trailer for the game and wowed us all.

But we should have known more was coming. During their presentation at this year's Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix rolled out the big guns, offering players a nearly 30-minute look at the game in action. 

Now, I should preface this by saying that the entire panel is in Japanese and that while I've turned on the translation function in the YouTube video... Well, we all know how reliable that is.

In all honesty, it might be better to just ignore the dialog and watch the gameplay the first time around.

According to the video -- if the translation is correct -- Kingdom Hearts III has 82 worlds. Recent reports have said that the game will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 hours long, so 82 worlds might be a stretch. However, Square has not officially released the length of KH3, so we'll just have to wait and see. 

The video starts out in Olympus and demonstrates some of the combat and movement before hopping on a roller coaster for even more fighting. 

Once done in Olympus, the demo moves on to show off the Toy Story world where Sora and company fight the Heartless and meet Woody, Buzz, and the other toys. This second part of the demo is the longest, taking up about two-thirds of the time.

So far, the game looks great and Disney/Pixar fans should be pretty happy that launch is getting closer than ever. 




TGS 2018: Return To Grymoire In The World Of Final Fantasy Maxima Trailer Thu, 20 Sep 2018 15:00:12 -0400 QuintLyn

The Tokyo Game Show is underway, and one thing remains true. It wouldn't be TGS without a showing from Square Enix. The company has a few things they're showing off this year -- including a Kingdom Hearts III gameplay trailer that we'll be posting shortly.  But first, let's return to the land of Grymoire. 

That's right, Square Enix offered World of Final Fantasy fans a look at an updated version of the game -- World of Final Fantasy Maxima. Like the original, Maxima takes place in Grymoire -- a world filled with super cute versions of beloved Final Fantasy characters -- and focuses on the story of Lann and Reynn, siblings who suffer from amnesia.

World of Final Fantasy Maxima tells the same story while adding new characters, monsters and a new avatar change system to the mix. This gives players access to more champions and mirages. 

If this is your first World of Final Fantasy encounter, you can get the lowdown on the original game in this review we did when it first came out. Otherwise, take a peek at Maxima in the video above.

TGS 2018: Devil May Cry 5 Gameplay Trailer Shows Dante in Action Thu, 20 Sep 2018 12:42:54 -0400 QuintLyn

While Devil May Cry 5's release date is still almost six months away, that doesn't mean Capcom isn't more than happy to show us a bit to start the hype train early.

And what better time to do that than at Tokyo Game Show 2018, which just kicked off. To get things rolling, the developer dropped an all-new DMC5 gameplay trailer right off the bat.

Dante and company find themselves in a Red Grave City overrun by demons. But these creatures have taken over more than the city -- they're literally everywhere. The trailer highlights some of the game's story elements and characters, but it doesn't take long for it to get right into the action.

Players will recognize Dante's sword Rebellion, and his guns Ebony and Ivory -- although they might be most impressed with an oddly designed motorcycle that splits at the handlebars to become dual-blade weapons.

If you're interested in watching the Devil May Cry 5 gameplay trailer, it's available on the Capcom YouTube channel. Watch all the way to the end. It's worth it. 

Once you're done watching that, be sure to check out this second trailer highlighting one of the game's weapons. I'd tell you what it is, but you'll find out when you watch the end of the gameplay trailer.

And, if you haven't gotten enough DMC goodness after that, you can also check out our analysis of the E3 2018 announcement trailer, complete with a look back at where the series left off.
