Namco Bandai is looking to reignite gamers’ souls today with the release of Soulcalibur V for the 360 and PS3. Set 17 years after the events in SCIV, the latest follows Patroklos and Pyrrha Alexandra as they uncover their family’s history with the Soul swords.

After many, many, many screenshot posts and character updates, we hit the big one: Final Fantasy XIII-2 has hit store shelves for the 360 and PS3. XIII-2, a direct sequel to XIII, features new gameplay systems, multiple progression paths, and enhanced visuals. Although following its predecessor closely, XIII-2 is standalone release and, as noted by Square Enix, unfolds in such a way that it requires no previous experience with XIII. Downloadable content has also been announced as in the works, including additional episodes and modes, with the first release being Coliseum battles.
