ESRB rates SOE-published 2D brawler 'Revenge of the Wounded Dragons' [update]

Update: An SOE rep has confirmed to Joystiq that more details on the game will be released next Monday. Hold tight! If it weren't strange enough that Sony Online Entertainment is listed as the publisher for recently ESRB rated PlayStation 3 side-scrolling brawler Revenge of the Wounded Dragons, we...

Last Flight resurfaces as an episodic game

Remember Last Flight, the WiiWare vampires-on-a-plane game from Nibris expats Bloober Team? Sebastian from Any Given Gamer did, noticing a Tweet from executive producer Marcin Kawa that sort of indirectly referred to the game. He guessed that it meant news about Last Flight would be on the way, and...

Get ready to Pokemon Rumble at PAX

In June, Nintendo released a Pokemon game in Japan that even those of us well over catchin' em all might look at with interest: Melee! Pokemon Scramble; a four-player brawler starring robotic Pokemon. Nintendo just announced that it's coming to North America -- we know, shocking that a game in...

New Spyborgs trailer goes up

We find it funny that Capcom is celebrating the existence of an elevator level in Spyborgs with this trailer -- elevator levels are basically the laziest way to design a brawler level, requiring only a persistent floor, a looping background and frequent enemy drops from the top of the screen. That...

The sights, sounds, and spiderbots of Spyborgs

Instead, we got something that makes us want to turn the video on, get up and just dance. After the break, see a...

Capcom has finally announced a date for its new Wii brawler, Spyborgs. The cooperative action game from Bionic Games will be out in North America on September 29. Originally announced at Capcom's Captivate '08 event, Spyborgs underwent major retooling, becoming a bit less "kiddie"-looking in the...

Name Atlus's new PSP brawler

Atlus has announced plans to publish Kenka Bancho 3, Spike's PSP brawler about Japanese high school gangs. Since this will be the first Western release for the over-the-top fighting series, it doesn't have an English name yet. And "Kenka Bancho" is slightly difficult to translate in a snappy manner:...

Tokyo Beat Down attacks with combo of videos

Atlus sent out not just one, but three short trailers for Tokyo Beat Down, Success Corp.'s new DS brawler. We hate to say it, but the animation looks pretty choppy in these videos. But the concept of the game -- cops beat up tons of dudes -- and the hilarious writing ensure that we will be giving...

MadWorld's controls designed by sane people

IGN posted this control diagram as part of their week of MadWorld coverage, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief at the non-gimmick controls. We particularly enjoy the fact that, rather than "light" and "heavy" attacks, the buttons correspond to regular attacks and the chainsaw -- which can only...
