Being able to turn back the tide of battle when you're busy getting your teeth kicked in is a vital ability in any fighting game, and that's exactly what Tekken 7 is doing with the new Rage Attack mechanic introduced in the latest trailer for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, the newest expansion headed to Japanese arcades. While no console port has been released just yet, the new mechanic lets characters enter a rage state, boosting their attacks with a number of new properties and applications, sure to help take off the pressure when the round is hitting its final moments, allowing for well timed upsets and breaks that just might make a winner into a loser if they aren't careful and vice versa.
Final Fantasy Tactics is the forgotten gem of the series, originally released in 1997 for the PlayStation, the isometric turn based strategy RPG combined the lore and legacy of the Final Fantasy series, but with a story rivaling that of the original six games. At the front of that conflict, the Lion War, stands Ramza Beoulve, a noble turned mercenary for hire. The series hasn't seen a proper installation since 2007's Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, which was released for the Nintendo DS, but with the upcoming arcade fighter Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Ramza is set to take the field in his biggest battle yet.
No, you didn't read that headline wrong. Mario Party, the notorious Nintendo franchise known for its swear generating, rage inducing, friendship ruining random events and minigames, is coming to an arcade near you in the form of Mario Party Mysterious Challenge World. Assuming of course, you live in Japan.
At the heart of every conflict is a mastermind who has been pulling the strings from the very beginning, and for the world of Arc System Works' BlazBlue, that mastermind is the immortal death incarnate, Hades Izanami. For the first time, the true main antagonist of BlazBlue will be playable in the upcoming newest installation, BlazBlue: Centralfiction.
Last month we learned that Final Fantasy Tactics' own Ramza Beoulve was headed to the current-arcade final fantasy fighting game, Dissidia Final Fantasy. In a recent issue of the Japanese gaming magazing Famitsu, it was revealed that Japanese arcade goers will be seeing the Order of the Northern Sky squire turned heretic available for combat in the near future, Siliconera reports.
Two new trailers have surfaced for the arcade only Dissidia Final Fantasy, this time surrounding Final Fantasy IV's Cecil Harvey and Final Fantasy V's Bartz Klauser (misspelled as Butz, hilariously enough). Starting out as a Dark Knight, Cecil would go on to become a shining paladin by the end of his game, wielding a powerful sword and spear with intense magical and weapon attacks, devastating enemies with vicious swipes and slashes as he dances through the air. On the other hand, we also have the simple wanderer Bartz Klauser, a man dedicated to traveling and exploring the world following the death of his father. A young and responsible man, Bartz also wields a sword, but is not a paladin like Cecil, instead he can dart around the battlefield, using offensive magicks, a bow and arrow, and enchanting his weapons with powerful elemental magicks.
