Behold the Odin Sphere Lifthrasir “Storybook” Edition! Atlus touts it as their largest Limited Edition to date! Heres what it includes:

  • 64-page Hardcover Art Book – Filled with the original drawings from the legendary George Kamitani and Vanillaware.

  • Potion Recipe T-shirt – This large-size t-shirt is emblazoned with a helpful reminder of one of the more common uses of Alchemy in Odin Sphere Leifthrasir: turning the living Mandragora plant creatures (Habaneristos, in this case) into potions vital for survival.

  • Collector’s Metal Slipcase – The PS4 game will come nestled in a special metal slipcase with the game’s key art on the front, and a not-yet-revealed image on the reverse.

  • Art Print – Also included with the game will be a high-quality art print with another not-yet-revealed (but different) design.

  • Premium Outer Box – All the contents in the premium edition will be packaged in a large, sturdy outer box.

This version of the game is exclusive to PS4 and will retail for $79.99! This does indeed seem like Atlus’s biggest Limited Edition to date! It will be amazing to see how they top this one in the future!

However what of the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game? Or the people who don’t want to spend the extra money on the Limited Edition? Well never fear our friends at Atlus have you covered!

Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax – Review

Platform: Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita

Developer: Kadokawa ASCII Media Works

Publisher: SEGA USA

Rated: T

Release Date: October 6th, 2015

A review copy of the Vita version was provided by SEGA USA

Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is a solid yet very simple 2D fighting game. This game is similar to that of J-Stars in the sense that they use characters from alternate forms of media. Where J-Stars uses characters from their Weekly Shounen JUMP franchises (Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, etc); Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax uses characters from Dengeki Bunko‘s popular light novel. Seeing characters like Shizou from Durarara!! and Kirino Kousaka from My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute fight each other seems funny and a little jarring, but seeing characters like Kuroyukihime from Accel World and Kirito from Sword Art Online feels like eye-candy considering they’re from the same author.

Review:Lost Dimension-A True Hidden Gem

Lost Dimension Review

PlayStation Vita

Lost Dimension is the latest game brought to us from Atlus by the developer FuRyu for the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 3. This game flaunts that it is a new spin on the visual novel and TRPG genre, but does it live up to said claims? Well that is what I am here to talk to you about today; I should mention before we get started that I spent the bulk of my time playing the PlayStation Vita version of the game, so anything regarded to in this game is based off my experience from playing it on the Vita.

Preview:Lost Dimension First Impressions

Disclaimer: I am about 1/3 of the way through the game at the time of writing this preview.

What happens when you put Danganronpa, Fire Emblem, and Shin Megami Tensei Soul Hackers into a blender and sprinkle Lego City Undercover’s load times? You get Lost Dimension.

Lost Dimension is for PS Vita/PS3
