DARK SOULS II: SCHOLAR OF THE FIRST SIN

PlayStation®4 XBox ONE[Action]

For those who have not #PREPARETODIE yet, gather round the bonfire, and get ready for a tale like no other.

FINAL FANTASY EXPLORERS

Nintendo 3DS™ [Action RPG]

Final Fantasy Explorers is a quest-driven action RPG with many elements similar to Final Fantasy Chronicles (GameCube) and the Monster Hunter franchise. The premise of the game is that the titular Explorers are hunting the world for crystals, the source of life and civilization, which are guarded by fearsome beasts and summons from the Final Fantasy franchise.

The title makes use of the classic Job system, familiar to nearly any RPG player, with these jobs currently confirmed: Beastmaster, Machinist, Dragoon, Dark Knight, Ninja, Paladin, Hunter, White Mage, and Time Mage.

Players don't choose their job immediately, in the beginning your character will be a 'Freelancer' who will be able to collect materials and create gear, but won't be specialized in any one thing. 

Final Fantasy Explorers will have both singleplayer and multiplayer modes, where the multiplayer will be up to 4 player co-op with both online and local capabilities. Communication between players will be possible through the use of preset text phrases.

As one of the first games to utilize the extra buttons on the New Nintendo 3DS players will be able to control the camera using the C-stick while the ZL button is for monster lock-on and the ZR button is for summon monster lock-on.

THEATRHYTHM: DRAGON QUEST

Nintendo 3DS™ [Rhythm]

Dragon Quest gets the Theatrhythm treatment and features more than 60 songs selected from Dragon Quest I to X, all composed by Koichi Sugiyama! There are three game modes that players can dive into: challenge mode, music-play and Casino. While songs can be unlocked in challenge mode, playable characters are unlocked via the Casino.

There are many similarities between Theatrythm Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest but also quite a few differences (outside of the obvious). An example of this is that battle songs in Theatrhythm Dragon Quest have notes coming from top to bottom, rather than from left to right like they did in Theatrhythm Final Fantasy.

Theatrhythm DQ opens itself to more RPG elements as well, increasing the fun for those who want to strategize and focus on their party and skill selection a bit more. Clearing a song and a boss can rely on two different things, e.g. execution of the song and your character specs. 

Overall Theatrythm checks all the nostalgia boxes while doing justice to the the bright and vibrant world of DQ!

BORDERLANDS 2

PlayStation®3 [FPS/RPG]

Borderlands 2 is a hugely popular action-RPG-first person shooter - awarded such VGA's as Best Shooter and Best Multiplayer in 2012. Borderlands is so hugely popular because it successfully combines the intuitive reward systems of action role playing games and the frantic-paced shooting combat of first person shooters to create the ultimate adventure, which is only helped by the whacky characters and gorgeous cel-shading art style.

Complete the main campaign along with numerous side-quests as one of the vault hunters on the planet Pandora. Online collaborative play (up to 4 players) and character progression molds this game into an ageless RPG, meanwhile keeping traditional first person shooter elements alive.

Gain experience through missions and killing enemies, level up, and spend skill points to customize your character's skillsets - as well as collect a nearly endless variety of guns and weapons.
