Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Unveils New Screenies

Famitsu has recently posted a bunch of new screenshots from the upcoming Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth training RPG. The screenshots don’t really show anything new or groundbreaking, but in the absence of any news about the PS Vita-bound game, we’ll take the chance to post it. At the very least, if you haven’t seen any of the previously released screens – these new ones will show you the contemporary setting and the cyberspace world.

You can check out the screenshots below:

iOS and Android Gets New Dragon Ball RPG

iOS and Android Gets New Dragon Ball RPG

Good news for Dragon Ball fans who own a tablet device – Namco Bandai has recently posted a preview video revealing a brand new Dragon Ball game for your precious devices. The game is titled Dragon Ball RPG: Shounen Hen and will be a 4-chapter RPG set in the early days of Goku (when he was a pre-teen fighting Demon King Picollo).

Dragon Ball RPG: Shounen Hen will be in 2D and seems to be using a game engine similar to Attack of the Saiyans on the DS, which means top down exploration and turn based fighting. Unfortunately for North American fans, it’s Japanese only (for now, or maybe forever.)

For more details (provided that you understand Japanese,) you can check out the video below:

It’s Wednesday again, which means time for another free browser-based game here on Toonbarn! This week, we’re going to address one of the problems with browser-based games, namely the fact that majority of them are designed for short bursts of play, which is fine most of the time as that’s exactly what many people want in a game, but what about people want something deeper and something that has more depth, story, and sense of progression? Easy: Champions of Chaos 2.

Champions of Chaos 2 is a turn-based point-and-click fighting game with a workable story. I’m not going to spoil the story here, because the sleek voice over narration in the intro movies (yes, it has intro movies) would be wasted. But for courtesy’s sake – you’re given a chance to play 2 Champions. As for why they are championing chaos and what exactly happened during Champions of Chaos 1, you’ll just have to play the game, below:

One Piece: Romance Dawn RPG to be Released in North America

Despite initial announcements that there are no plans to release the 3DS version of One Piece: Romance Dawn RPG for the US, Namco Bandai has just announced the game’s release for the North American market this holiday season.

In most cases, publishers and developers going back on their word are usually met with criticism from gamers, but in cases like this, nobody will be complaining as the NA market is frequently passed over when it comes to localization of many high profile anime-related videogames (as opposed to the EU market, which sometimes gets their own localized versions).
