    Famitsu always teases and never delivers. :c And yet I always get hyped every week.

      Don’t read too much into them. IIRC for this week they teased a sequel to a popular series. Only thing I’m seeing is Phantom Breaker Extra for PS3/360 (which I don’t think is very popular?).

      • surakian

        Yeah I never do. They tease something weekly, and I guess it is their job to get people excited even if it is a niche-y game.

  • Eclipse

    The Nyaruko-san game is one of my most anticipated titles for this month, so I’m a bit saddened to see it get such an average score.

  • bloodiOS

    Famitsu really does know how to tease.

    • DrForbidden

      Unfortunately, their teases all turn out to be disappointments…

    What does Famitsu know about “the world”?

    “‘That news’ the world has long-awaited announced at last!” = Final Fantasy Versus XIII? Hopefully it is.

  • smashbrolink

    Mystwalker’s new game, perhaps?
    I’d love to see The Last Story 2 on the Wii U!

    • Budgiecat

      no! PS3/ PS4!

      • smashbrolink

        Nope. It should be on the Wii U. The Wii is where the first one got its sales from, and if a player didn’t support a series because they hated the consoles it was on, there’s no reason why they should get to play a sequel to the game, IMO.
        I got a PS3 for Bayonetta, amongst other great titles.
        I supported the series despite not being impressed with the system itself, so I’ve earned my admittance to its sequel on the Wii U.
        I feel no guilt in expecting similar standards from other multiplatform gamers, because it’s really not asking much.

    Whats that pic about

    • eim

      It’s norn 9

  • new_tradition

    Curious about the second point. Are they talking about Japanese games the West want, or games Japan wants from the West?

  • PrinceHeir

    DoDonPachi Saidaioujou !

    Mistwalker’s next game please or Itagaki’s Devil’s Third!

  • smashbrolink

    I just realized……
    What if it’s something horrible like the latest Rare IP that Microsoft intends to defile?
    They’ve already announced that they’re bringing another one back from the dead to add some fresh marks to the horse’s poor scarred hide.
    I’ll be really, really sad if that’s their announcement……
