PRE-ORDER HIGHLIGHTS: The Last of Us Remastered, Under Night In-Birth: Exe Late, Akiba's Trip 2 (PS4), and Lost Dimension!

Welcome to our Weekly Pre-Order News! While there have been a lot of exciting announcements at the recent E3, one must not forget the great games that are coming out in the next few months!


PlayStation®3 [Fighting]

Developer French-Bread is teaming with Arc System Works to bring its latest arcade title, Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late (UNIEL), to PS3 with tons of new upgrades and updates!

Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late will be sporting stylish and smoothly-animated special attacks along with a variety of easy-to-perform combos. If you hit the right ability execution you can even pull off the very aesthetically-impressive Infinite Worth Exist move!

UNIEL also includes a unique cast of characters, each possessing special abilities and weapons of their own! The biggest news coming out of the latest Famitsu is that we will be able to play the high school warrior Nanase! Rocking the stylistic oversized sword, her special attack is a spinning 'Windmill', staying out of her reach could get pretty difficult!

If variation is what you're after, you're in luck! UNIEL is packed with different game modes, ranging from offline battles like VSMode and Survival to online Ranked matches and training! For players who want to appreciate the artwork and the characters a bit more there is both a Customization Mode and a Gallery you can browse to your heart's content!

PlayStation®4 [Adventure]

Exclusively for the PS4 edition, aside from the obvious graphical upgrade, players will find that this version will have faster  load times as well as a lot more characters on the streets of Akihabara. As well, first print copies will include a code that gives the heroines different costumes!

Akihabara, famous for otaku culture, maid cafes and, uh, blood sucking demons? Blood sucking demons who can be killed by stripping them? Sounds just like Akihabara!

That's right - return to the streets of this famous district as an otaku caught up in a bizarre conspiracy wherein the logical course of action is to beat up demons, strip them naked, expose them to the sun and nervously laugh as their naked demon corpse melts away.

Sequel to the original Akiba's TripAkiba's Trip 2 features over 130 real world shops and faithfully recreates Akihabara as the stage for stripping. There are also a multitude of weapons and items to choose from to aid Akiba in his quest (seriously, if you've seen the gameplay videos, then you know there are a lot)! Introducing an AI controlled partner and the new UNISON STRIP SYSTEM! If Akiba's Trip 2 sounds awesome, it's because it is!

PlayStation®3 PlayStation®Vita [RPG]

From the development team alone, FuRyu's new title is looking to be a great RPG to look forward to!

Lost Dimension's team consists of the Japanese game studio Lancrese, who previously helped in the making of the first Etrian Odyssey and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, Yoshiaki Yamaguchi, the artist of Gravity Rush, and Jun Kumagai, writer of the successful Persona 3 movies. What's more, previews from Japanese game publications have made note that gameplay is highly reminiscent of Valkyria Chronicles and Sakura Wars! 

Taking place in a post dystopian future not too far from the present, the game revolves around Sho Kasugai and his special ability called "Vision" - his powers of premonition are essential in saving people from mass destruction against a mysterious enemy known as "The End." Recognizing Sho's power, the UN forms a team named S.E.A.L.E.D. to track him down. 

Without giving away too much, from what's been said about the story, player can expect an exciting tale of tension, betrayal,  and redemption. This coupled with the expectations from the dev team as well as some great 3rd person tactical strategy is something all fans of JRPGS can be excited about!

PlayStation®4 [Action-Adventure, Survival Horror]

A title like The Last Of Us needs no introduction; as one of the most celebrated games of 2013 with over 200 Game of the Year awards, this exclusive PlayStation 4 rebuild takes this impressive title a few steps further.

Now featuring higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting in an already beautiful game, all this is displayed in 1080p at 60 frames per second! In addition to all this, several other gameplay improvements have been made making this the perfect version of a perfect game.

The Last of Us Remastered will also include over 30$ of extras, most notable being the multiplayer add-ons: the Abandoned Territories Map Pack, Reclaimed Territories Map Pack and the critically acclaimed single player story DLC: Left Behind. 

And finally, if the above isn't enough, for those who have played the PS3 version, there is an in-game cinematic commentary from the cast and creative director!
