As you might have assume from the name Tokyo Game Show, the show is in Japan and focuses mostly on Japanese games. Many of the games shown aren't not guaranteed to come to North America. Our TGS Localization Wishlist breaks down the ones we hope will be localized for the United States.

Ace Attorney Prequel gets new trailer at Tokyo Game Show

Capcom have revealed a brand new trailer for the upcoming Ace Attorney prequel, The Great Ace Attorney at the Tokyo Game Show.

Set during the Meiji era of Japan, attorney-in-training Ryunosuke Naurhodou, ancestor of Phoenix Wright, travels to England along with his assistant, Susato Mikotoba, where he meets Sherlock Holmes and his partner, the young genius, Iris Watson.

The trailer shows off one of the new features of the game: deductive reasoning, which sees Holmes use his infamous detective skills to analyse Susato, with Ryunosuke butting in to bring in his own deductions.

The game will be out in Japan in early 2015. Still no word on a Western release but given the series’ popularity over here and the game prominently taking place in England, we should hopefully hear something about it next year.

The Evil Within Tokyo Game Show 2014 trailer

Bethesda released a new trailer for their upcoming horror IP The Evil Wtihin at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. The trailer should manage to get you terrified for the late nights you will be up not being able to sleep because you decided it was a better idea to play the game in the dark with the sound turned up. In fact, I am sure the game’s director, the horror man himself, Shinji Mikami, already has that in mind.

The Evil Within is due for release on October 23rd for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

New Comparison Screens Show Improved Graphics In Resident Evil Remake


Capcom is working on a remastered version of Resident Evil Remake, a new version of the classic survival horror game that released on GameCube in 2002.

That GameCube title was eventually ported to Wii, but since the system couldn't output true HD, it wasn't markedly better looking. Now, a fully HD remaster of Resident Evil is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Today, Capcom released some new images of the game, including three new shots that had been released in Japan. If you go to Capcom Unity, there are some great interactive screenshots that allow you to compare the Wii version with the 360/PS3 version by moving a slider across the screen to transition between the two. It's pretty impressive. These are shots of the Xbox 360/PS3 version, so it's conceivable that the Xbox One/PS4 version could look better still. Check out some comparison shots below, and look for the three new screens in the image gallery.

GI Show 212: The Last Of Us Remastered, Oddworld, EA Access

This week, two classics from gaming's recent and not-so-recent past return in improved form, and we discuss a bold new Electronic Arts gaming service.

In our first segment, host Matt Helgeson is joined by Tim Turi, who recently reviewed The Last of Us: Remastered. Naughty Dog's masterpiece is better than ever on PS4, and this is the definitive way to play the game. We discuss what's been done to improve its visuals, the DLC that it comes packed with, and the lasting impact of the experience.

Next up, Joe Juba and Ben Hanson stop by to discuss Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, a meticulous next-gen recreation of the PS1-era classic. Oddworld Inhabitant's strange platform/puzzle game remains beguiling, and has been completely rebuilt from the ground up by Just Add Water.

GI Show 210: What We’re Playing During The Summer Slump

This is one of the best times in the history to be a video game fan. The years are packed with games of increasingly greater quality, so many that most gamers bemoan their intimidating backlog of unfinished business. Mercifully, there is always a time in the year, usually around mid-summer, that the torrent of new releases lets up and gives us an opportunity to revisit our pile of shame.

Join Ben Reeves, Ben Hanson, and I (your host Tim Turi) as we discuss the myriad games we've been playing to fill the gap in hot new releases. The discussion packs variety in spades, from legendary 16-bit RPGs to MMOs that would be unfathomable time sinks during any other time in the year.
