Crystal Dynamics has put together a new gameplay video for Rise of the Tomb Raider. The latest footage highlights Lara’s less-lethal side, as she makes her way around an armed gang by sticking to the shadows and utilizing distractions.

Sega has released three new videos for their upcoming rhythm title Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX.

3D Gunstar Heroes now available on eShop for 3DS

3DS Gunstar Heroes (3DS) Launch Announcement - Screenshot 1

Treasure’s legendary action side-scroller Gunstar Heroes has been added to Sega’s 3D Classics line. 3D Gunstar Heroes, now available on eShop, features two versions (Japanese and International), local co-op, emulation options, stereoscopic 3D support, and new gameplay modes. The added modes include Mega Life (more health), Mega Shot (double damage), and Gunslinger (allows for players to discover new weapon combinations, a la Alien Soldier). The game’s extensive scrolling and high-intensity action made it particularly difficult to port to 3DS, and it was actually passed over previously. The technically minded curious about how it was accomplished can find some answers in a new interview with producer Yosuke Okunari and M2 president Naoki Horii at Sega’s blog.
