Bases still loaded: Jaleco isn't dead

Jaleco hasn't left the game industry following its buyout by Game Yarou. In fact, it's going to be business as usual at the Jaleco offices, with the only difference being that hopefully there will be some business. Gamasutra reports that under Game Yarou's ownership, Jaleco Limited will continue...

VC Tuesday: Shooting cars and Shootanto

It's an extremely low-key week on the Japanese Virtual Console, with only two obscure-ish 8-bit titles available for download. Ninja-kun, the precursor to Ninja Jajamaru-kun, is kind of unique, in that it's a vertically-oriented action platformer. But a vertically-oriented action platformer without...

Ougon no Kizuna's smaller quests

Most of what we've seen of Jaleco's Ougon no Kizuna has involved big, big bosses. But while fighting huge hulks is an important part of the game, it's also characterized by much smaller tasks involving (generally) smaller characters, who then form "bonds" with Lian, the protagonist. The formation...

XSEED placates forum, will 'look into' Ougon no Kizuna

XSEED seems to have replaced companies like Atlus and Mastiff as the go-to publisher for random imports, after releasing a couple of Wild ARMs games, Victorious Boxers Revolution, and other Japanese games, and announcing a localization of Namco Bandai's Game Center CX DS game. NeoGAFer "Hero of...

More giant bosses in Ougon no Kizuna

The latest Famitsu scan of Jaleco's ARPG Ougon no Kizuna introduces some of the protagonists' traveling companions and other NPCs, who are basically a bunch of unremarkable fantasy-anime character designs, all decked out in some intricate robes. These are presumably the people with whom Lian...

Get up close to Ougon no Kizuna

How much are we freaking out over Jaleco's Shadow of the Colossus-esque Ougon no Kizuna (Bonds of Gold)? Long answer: obviously a heck of a lot, considering we're already comparing it to the majesty of Shadow of the Colossus. Short answer: UIVJM(*RIWV%WOV&IUPO/WF. While we previously only had...

Ougon no Kizuna: Jaleco's new action RPG

The latest Famitsu reveals a new game from Jaleco with a bit of a Shadow of the Colossus vibe. Ougon no Kizuna (Bonds of Gold) features big, climbable bosses like Team ICO's game, though not quite as big. These bosses also have specific weak points, though in this game you use the Wiimote pointer to...

Virtually Overlooked: Irritating Stick

This is pretty out-there for a Virtual Console request, for plenty of reasons. Okay, so Irritating Stick is a PlayStation game, which is more likely to show up on the PS3 than the Wii. And okay, there'd be no point in doing it without Wiimote integration -- more on that later -- meaning it should be...

VC Friday: City Turf Karate

Ask people to name the first Commodore 64 game that comes to mind, and we're willing to bet that more than half would mention International Karate +. Despite coming out on loads of different platforms back in the late-1980s, System 3's chop-'em-up is still most widely recognized as one of the C64's...
