Welcome back, everyone, to DualShockers’ annual Game of the Year awards selection! We are all one year wiser, and one year more excited than we were in 2017. Thankfully, 2018 has been a rather contentious year with mega-hits like God of War, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Monster Hunter: World having a strong showing — we are in no
Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone has published a new blog post on the Stardew Valley Developer Blog detailing what he is currently working on for Stardew Valley and his next game. This blog post comes just two days after the 1.3 update came to the Nintendo Switch version, which included multiplayer and new single-player content. Barone opens up
The console race of the 1990s has reared its head again in recent years. However, this time it’s presented in a miniaturized format. What started off with the now iconic NES Classic from Nintendo soon gave life to a whole range of tiny machines imitating the heavy hitters of days gone by. Since then, we’ve
As announced earlier in the year, Sony has created their very own PlayStation Classic in response to Nintendo’s NES Classic and SNES Classic releases, bundling 20 PlayStation 1 “classics” onto a smaller version of the original console and with the original DualShock controllers. However, personally (and for a lot of others out there) I find
Who would have thought that 2019 would be such a prospectively amazing year for gaming. However, we have compiled a list of every game coming out and it is time to pick what is your most anticipated game of 2019! You’re given the ability to change your vote at any time before the cutoff time, which will be December
It’s that time of the year again, and you’re now called to decide DualShockers’ annual honor: Game of the Year 2018 – Reader’s Choice Award. Without question, our community is the best part of DualShockers, so we (and the developers and publishers we chat to) know that the Reader’s Choice Award is one of the best
One of the latest Magical Yumina videos, LoveR‘s virtual youtuber, featured new gameplay, illustrating how the game flows, more photo shoots, and a bit of the Lover Days mode which unlocks once you get a girlfriend. LoveR works the same as most dating simulators with a school setting. Every day, the protagonist gets to school, and

London Detective Mysteria, an western release of Eikoku Tantei Mysteria: The Crown published by XSEED, was announced for PC and PS Vita just before Anime Expo earlier this year. The game had a fall 2018 release window at the time of announcement and it looks like the game will just barely be making that, at least for
Yodobashi Camera’s online shop started listing Eve Rebirth Terror with an April 25, 2019, release date. There was no official announcement by El Dia yet, with the game’s official site still being in teaser mode, so keep in mind this date is subject to change. The listing also includes an official product description, revealing more
The Game Awards 2018, hosted by Geoff Keighley, just concluded. Along with numerous awards being given out, several new game announcements were spliced in throughout the show. That being said, the announcements that left the greatest impact were the World Premieres for new games that took place during the event. While some of the PC,
Koei Tecmo published the second Japanese trailer for Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World, the game celebrating the Atelier series’ 20th anniversary.

In 2017, a small video game development team from Canada called Causal Bit Games took their project Battle Princess Madelyn to Kickstarter to raise $60,000 (CAD). In only a few days the project had been successfully funded, and the backing kept on growing and growing. In the end, Battle Princess Madelyn ended up hitting $212,665
Hey everyone, long time no chat! This is Lou Contaldi, Editor-in-Chief of DualShockers and I’m looking for your help. If you’ve been a frequent reader, you may have noticed that DualShockers design looked… dated. Not much has changed since when DualShockers first started in 2009. While it may be a streamlined way to get to
Stardew Valley, a simple yet deep farming simulator/RPG that evokes early Harvest Moon titles, took the world be storm when it was released by developer ConcernedApe and publisher Chucklefish for PC in February of 2016. Since then, the pair have managed to bring Stardew Valley to several platforms and to great success. That being said,
The Phantom Thieves are back again with Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight for the PS4 and PS Vita. The rhythm genre and Persona isn’t anything new, with Persona 4 having previously received its own dancing title. But Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight brings its own identity and style that keeps me coming back for more. Persona 5 Dancing, or P5D for short,
I couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear as I booted up Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight on my PS Vita. A Persona game on PS Vita… in 2018. “Holy crap,” I thought to myself. This in and of itself is an absolute treat for fans who got their start with the series playing Persona 4 Golden. Thankfully,
Atlus and Studio Zero published episode 6 of the Catherine: Full Body Adult Love Issues Theater, which is also the last video in the series. It’s titled “The Men’s Opinion on Love” and focuses on Vincent and his drink buddies: Tobias “Toby” Nebbins, Jonathan “Jonny” Ariga and Orlando Haddick. Here’s a translation of the video. I
It’s that time of the month again when Sony reveals which games will be available for free through PlayStation Plus. The December 2018 line-up will include Soma and Onrush on the PlayStation 4—perhaps not the biggest blockbuster titles for the holiday season, but games that people are passionate and opinionated about regardless. For those out
The soundtrack for Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment has been announced for digital, CD, and vinyl. Being handled once again by Brave Wave, the soundtrack is available for pre-order in Europe now with pre-orders in America opening up on December 4. The soundtrack will be released in January 2019.

A patent from Sony has surfaced detailing a new kind of gaming cartridge. The patent was granted last month on October 5, 2018, after originally being submitted in November 2017. The cartridge itself was invented by Yujin Morisawa, the Senior Art Director at the Corporate Design Center of Sony Interactive Entertainment. The design of the cartridges looks
Being deaf, I’ve often made jokes about bad subtitles that are too small to read. Just in the past few years we’ve seen a few examples of how games have stumbled when it comes to implementing proper subtitles, such as Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus with its tiny subtitles that blend, or walls of text in Fallout 4.
As most of us already now, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the best days in terms of game deals each year, and 2018 looks to be no different. Personally, I snagged Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Dragon Quest XI, SoulCalibur VI, and Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition at heavily discounted prices this past weekend.
Kadokawa Games revealed new details on God Wars 2 during the “Kadokawa Games Fan Dai Kanshasai 2018” event this Saturday.

Kadokawa Games and Akatsuki Entertainment announced today that adventure game Root Letter will be getting a Hollywood live action movie adaptation. The announcement was made during the “Kadokawa Games Fan Dai Kanshasai 2018” event. The movie’s script isn’t written yet, so it’s currently unclear if it’ll follow the game’s story by the letter or bring in
Experience revealed today they’ll bring NG to PS4 on March 21. The game is the second game part of Experience’s “Spiritual Horror” series, following Death Mark. NG was first released in Japan for PS Vita on September 13, 2018. NG‘s story takes place in 1999, in the as-far-as I-know fictional district of Kissouji in Tokyo.
Atlus and Studio Zero published episode 5 of the Catherine: Full Body Adult Love Issues Theater, this time it focuses on Rin and is titled “Rin’s Secret”. Here’s a line by line translation of the video. I wish I could directly re-upload the video with subtitles but that’d definitely get striked. We’ll be skipping the intro part as
Console exclusives, which are usually first-party nowadays, have always been a hallmark of the gaming industry and are often some of the games hardcore fans look forward too most. This year has seen some standout exclusives including God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and Forza Horizon 4, all of which received critical acclaim and sold well.
