February 3 has arrived and Bandai Namco has finally unleashed the PC/Steam version of Road to Boruto, which is an expansion for the 3D cel-shaded anime fighter Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 or a standalone purchase if you don’t have the base game yet, similar to how they did things with Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst.

Ben 10: Up to Speed Review

I love Ben 10. And I don’t use the word “love” lightly – not in the same way you would use it to describe your feelings for delicious food or a particularly beautiful sunset. We’re talking about love in the truest sense of the word – the type of love that convinces a man to bring a Ben 10 DVD to City Hall and ask every one, within earshot, what needs to be done in order to get ...

Square Enix and Marvel: What Kind of Games Will It Lead To?

Master Jiang and the Six Kingdoms Release Date Moved to 2018?

Sometime in 2014, Toonbarn contributor Novid posted a trailer for an up-and-coming animated film titled Master Jiang and the Six Kingdoms.

Underappreciated Toons: Firebreather

With the sheer amount of cartoons out there, it’s no surprise that quality will be all over the place. As with most things, once you increase the volume you’re bound to get a lot of the bad alongside a lot of the good. It’s also normal for some of the good to get swept by the wayside, probably not good enough to float to the top but definitely not enough of a stinker to be noticed by people ...

Mobius Final Fantasy Coming to PC in the West This February

The PC version of the mobile game Mobius Final Fantasy was already released in Japan back in November, but obviously those of us in non-Japanese speaking countries will have trouble experiencing the game even if we know how to import, on account of the game (and the franchise itself) being reliant on one’s ability to read and understand the language it uses.
