Saboten Con Results

Saboten Con has come and gone, and this year I”d have to say that it was phenomenal. The panels and events were great and even all of our panels had amazing turnouts. Got to see Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and Troy Baker live and had a lot of fun running King of the Otaku and Otaku Jeopardy. Of course we can’t forget all of the Super Nailbat Party Blowout and how much fun that was.  Big thanks to the guys at Saboten Con who let us do the panels, to the contestants that we had participate in our fun and games and to everyone else who joined us for our Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts discussion panels! We really appreciate you all for coming out and we hope to see you next time we’re at a convention.

Saboten Con 2012

Project Nailbat is making a return to Saboten Con in just 14 daysthis year. Take a look at our list of events that we’re gonna be running at the convention and make sure if you’re in the area you come on down and see us!

Project Nailbat Plays…Persona 4 Arena

New video is up. We finally sit down and play the much anticipated Persona 4: Arena! Watch Nailbat go against Matt-suda while he complains about the game is fixed just like all of the others!

Dead or Alive 5 Watch: Opening Declaration Trailer

Perhaps is was due to poor planning on the part of Team Ninja for revealing a new trailer for Dead or Alive 5 the day after Persona 4: Arena gets released, but this completely slipped past me. This trailer looks great, and reveals several characters we’ve been waiting to see announced for the game like Brad Wong and Helena.

And if that wasn’t enough to get you going, the official site finally opened the story page and offers details about all of the past Dead or Alive games and even this sweet relationship chart to see where everyone stands with each other. In just a little over a month from now, the game will be out, so watch the trailer and get hyped!

Tekken Tag Tournament: Xtreme Swimsuit Edition

Looks like Namco is trying to prove to Tecmo that the characters in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 can look good in bikinis and swimsuits just like Tecmo’s characters in Dead or Alive. Only to take it a step further, it looks like the male cast of Tekken is participating as well. If you pre-order Tekken Tag Tournament 2, then you’ll get a bikini pack that comes with over 100 swimsuits you can use to customize your characters with.

Of course…Tecmo recently released this video showcasing a few of the things available to you if you pre-order Dead or Alive 5…

Swapnote Me Maybe

If you like Nintendo, have a 3DS and feel some type of way about Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” (So many people love it, but I’m sure that for every one person who loves it, some one out there is sick of hearing the song 9 times in a row every time they turn on a radio…) Then check out Streetpass Arizona‘s rendition of the song, “Swapnote Me Maybe”

New Video: Tekken 6

The latest video is now up on Project Nailbat’s Youtube channel. This week’s game is Tekken 6…Nailbat vs Mikeymania rematch. The video will be added to the Videos page as well, or you can just watch the new video below.

Rumor: Final Fantasy Versus XIII Is No More(?)

Rumor has it that Square Enix has officially canceled Final Fantasy Versus XIII. According to Kotaku and their sources, the game has been shut down, the team is reassigned to other projects and Square Enix plans to not come right out and say that the game has been canned out of fear for their stock prices falling. Probably so that they can just let the game eventually fall into the back of people’s minds until it’s been forgotten completely.

The newest issue of Game Informer magazine actually has an interesting article about Final Fantasy Versus XIII and one of the bits in the article talked about what went on in the world during the development of Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Some of the things that they had mentioned:

  • Four other Final Fantasy games (Final Fantasy XII, XIII, XIII-2 and XIV) were released
  • Mass Effect 1, 2, 3 AND the extended ending DLC were all released
  • The entirety of Bioshock AND Assassin’s Creed series
  • The entire lifetime of the Playstation 3

The article goes on to show a time table starting from May of 2006 when the game was first announced all the way to June of this year and explains what little we saw from FFvXIII at each month/public gaming event (if we saw anything from the game at all).

To some this might not be news, but there are some who, if this rumor turns out to become true, will be horribly dissapointed at this news. But Square Enix DOES plan to have an announcement ready for September 1st involving Final Fantasy XIII. Now it is possible that the game could just make a name change just like Final Fantasy Agito XIII Final Fantasy Type-0 because unless they go into more detail about the story relation between XIII’s universe and Versus XIII’s universe, there’s really no reason as to why it should be called ‘Versus XIII’ in the first place. Although it’s more than likely that the announcement will be the official announcement for Final Fantasy XIII-3.
