Fate/Samurai Remnant interview

In an interview with Famitsu, developers from Koei Tecmo and illustrators Takashi Takeuchi and Rei Wataru discussed the early development and character designs of Fate/Samurai Remnant. In the discussion, Takeuchi revealed that Tamamo Aria's inclusion was because they wanted to debut the Tamamo Nine characters one at a time in various games. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

Kou Shibusawa, a producer and creator at Koei Tecmo Games, wanted to make a Fate game with Type-Moon due to his love for Fate/Grand Order. He is a big fan of the Shimosa chapter. Takeuchi stated that a Shimosa-like setting would be ideal if Type-Moon and Koei Teco would make a game together, so they created Fate/Samurai Remnant with Shimosa as the foundation.

Since the game takes place during the Edo era, Wataru had to design the Masters to fit into that worldview. For reference, Wataru was the artist in charge of the manga adaptation of Shimosa. He stated that designing Iori was very difficult and that he initially looked like a Warriors character with a fancy outfit. But the development team wanted him to look like someone who'd fit in with the scenery of Edo, Japan. Saber, too, was a challenge for Wataru. Her concept was a black-haired Artoria, but he included elements from other Saberfaces. In the end, Saber has much sharper features than the original Artoria.

Yet another character that Takeuchi and Wataru remember having difficulties designing was Archer. He reveals his True Name quite early in the game, but he's a character that fans of Dynasty Warriors should be familiar with.

The inclusion of his character was to make fans feel like, "Ah, yes, I'm playing a Koei Tecmo game." When Shidzuki Morii (Archer's artist) gave Takeuchi the design, Takeuchi was surprised. This is because the version of Archer that appears in Dynasty Warriors isn't this young. But he thought that this sort of juxtaposition was very Fate-like and approved the design.

Fate/Samurai Remnant is available on the PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC.

A collaboration with A Certain Scientific Railgun T will start in Blue Archive on October 24, 2023, and run until November 8, 2023. During the event, Mikoto, Misaki, and Ruiko will appear as limited characters. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

Mikoto and Misaki will be in the gacha, while Ruiko will be a free reward. In Blue Archive, Mikoto is an attacker character who can also apply shock damage over time with her normal skill. As for Misaki, she is a supporter who can increase her own defense and evasion every time she inflicts Confusion onto an enemy.

Finally, Ruiko is an attacker who can also support her allies by raising their ATK. The more she uses this Skill, the more characters she'll be able to buff, capping at three. Check out promotional images for the collaboration below:

A Certain Scientific Railgun T is the third season of A Certain Scientific Railgun. Railgun is a spin-off of A Certain Magical Index. Because the series is more focused on Mikoto, who has nothing to do with the magic side of the story, Railgun is very specifically about the science side. The season ran from January to September 2020. It follows Mikoto, who has to team up with Misaki Shokuho to stop the Academy's dark side.

Blue Archive is readily available on mobile devices. An anime adaptation of the game is currently in production. The A Certain Scientific Railgun T collaboration in Blue Archive will run from October 24, 2023, to November 8, 2023.

One of the goodies that you'll be able to get with the limited editions is a commemorative present that came out when the movie was airing in theaters. This is for people who might not have been able to watch the movie at the time or could not get it because their movie theater ran out.

News of this first came out during the The First Slam Dunk staff live-stream, which aired on October 20, 2023. Other news that the staff announced during this stream included goods for the movie, such as miniature figures and shirts. You can start pre-ordering some of the merchandise from October 25, 2023.

PinocchioP Pokemon Hatsune Miku Song

The Vocaloid producer PinocchioP has released a new Hatsune Miku song in collaboration with the Pokemon Company for Project Voltage. The single, titled "The Pokemon Inside My Heart," is a sentimental recalling of his time with the Pokemon he cherished from his time playing the games.

The animated music video walks us through the speaker's experiences playing Pokemon games on the Game Boy. Many of the original 151 Pokemon are featured in the song as his experiences are recounted. The lyrics reflect on the joyful impact the Pokemon has had on his life and how he won't take that for granted, regardless of whether they are popular or not.

The song also features classic Pokemon sound effects and background music as samples. Miku can be heard singing along to the Pokemon Center theme near the end of the track.

Watch the animated music video and listen to the new Pokemon X Hatsune Miku song below:


The Pokemon Inside My Heart was also uploaded to the Project Voltage official social media account and website, where you can check out the other Pokemon X Hatsune Miku singles. Producers like DECO*27, Mitchie M, and Inabakumori have made songs for the collaboration. The site also features 18 different Pokemon trainer Hatsune Miku designs recently released for the project.

Like many of the other producers chosen for the project, Pinocchio-P has been making Vocaloid music for over a decade. Some of his most popular songs include "God-ish" and "Reincarnation Apple."

The Pokemon Inside My Heart is the fourth song released for Project Voltage. In total, 18 different producers will make songs for the Hatsune Miku and Pokemon collaboration project. It was also announced today that 18 more Pokemon X Hatsune Miku designs drawn by Vocaloid artists would be released over the next few months. The following four producers to participate in the project will be announced in late November 2023.

Resident Evil 4 Separate Ways

I remember sitting in my room as a pre-teen, running through Resident Evil 4 for a friend once the game released on PlayStation 2. They mostly just wanted access to the cosmetics, and neither of us were entirely aware an entirely new scenario had been bundled with the game. I had already beaten Assignment Ada, the GameCube release's small slice of side-content. So naturally the both of us assumed that it would be more of the same. But we were both very, very wrong, and got our first taste of Resident Evil 4's Separate Ways. It proved to be a more fleshed out scenario that filled in some gaps as to what Ada had been up to during the events of the game. The version of this side scenario that appears in the Resident Evil 4 remake functions in a very similar way.

In Separate Ways, you assume the role of Ada Wong, the Resident Evil series' super spy who is always dressed in some shade of red. Her scenario comprises of more or less coming to Leon's rescue in some fairly significant or other times subtle ways. However, her role is a lot clearer this time around, and she's joined by a small cast of characters. This includes Luis Sera, who is a stand-out not only in the main game but also this side scenario, and Albert Wesker. While neither are playable, they are integral parts to Resident Evil 4 remake's Separate Ways campaign. Luis steals the show as his background as an Umbrella Corporation scientist is further extrapolated on, and his performance remains stand-out. His voice actor has an incredible charisma that works well with his mo-cap, making him fun to have around and it utterly gut wrenching when he meets his inevitable end.

Seeing Wesker as well helps fill in some gaps as to what he was up to during the events of Resident Evil 4, though his goal is clear and Ada's role in that as well. He's there to retrieve the Las Plagas sample that will eventually create Uroboros — the virus in Resident Evil 5. These new cutscenes, though a lot more overt in their nature to really set up the events of any future remakes, make playing this new version of Separate Ways totally worth it. Especially if you're in it for the lore.

However, playing Ada in the campaign was especially rewarding. Her load-out is relatively the same, with the player able to unlock better guns as you progress. She starts with a TMP and pistol, and you can eventually get a shotgun and other arms to get you through the worst of it. But Ada feels cool to play. You use her grappling hook to launch yourself in the air and kick enemies in the face, drawing yourself to them to grind your heel against their jaws. Or you propel yourself into the air to scale building and avoid attacks, with each movement dynamic, fast, and exciting. Ada was already pretty neat in the original game, but she's exceptional now. However, much like the base game the performance from her voice actress remains extremely hit-or-miss. The direction at times seems confused, even if her dialogue feels very much in-character, with the delivery rarely landing.

The score is fantastic, as it remixes several songs from Resident Evil 4 incredibly effectively. Since Separate Ways has a relatively low price point I assumed it would be fairly short or even just re-use music from the base game. But Capcom's sound team went and made original mixes for this scenario, which adds to the experience and makes Separate Ways entirely new. That can also be said for the boss fights.

U3 appears in Separate Ways, missing from the base game, but is a new spin on the previous boss fight. You no longer have to navigate through suspended shipping containers in what was arguably one of the most tense segments of the original game, but instead just fight the mutated henchman in an arena. It's not the best fight by far, but it's nice to see it show up as a nod to the original. I personally would have liked to see the atmosphere of the original fight preserved, along with how grotesque that design was, but the new fight suits the new design of the Resident Evil 4 remake well. That said, a few fights did get cut, which means fans of the original may be disappointed. At least until they see that final credit scene roll.

Overall, Separate Ways is totally worth diving into if you enjoyed Resident Evil 4 remake, and doubly so if you're a big fan of the original and Ada Wong. It's only a handful of hours, which means you can blast through it, but it's a fantastic reimagining of an already stellar side scenario.

The Resident Evil 4 remake, and Separate Ways DLC, is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC.

Keroppi Fragaria Memories

After almost a month of revealing characters daily, the final Fragaria Memories knight was announced by Sanrio today. His name is Pikero, and he serves the frog mascot Keroppi.

He was introduced to us on the Fragaria Memories official social media account and website. Pikero has signed a contract with Keroppi to take advantage of the opportunity to study him more closely. He is a scientist who considers his work an "adventure."

According to his bio, Pikero tends to be cynical but loves analyzing his research subjects. However, he also gets lazy when researching topics that don't interest him. Pikero is voiced by Narufumi Machimoto. His character art was illustrated by Namakawa, who has worked with Nijisanji and Holostars on VTuber designs in the past.

Pikero is the final member of the Noir Bouquet group. As of now, Sanrio still hasn't announced how they will utilize the Fragaria Memories knights besides stating the concept is a "multimedia project."

Welcome to the Week in Review
After a wild season of product releases, did OnePlus save the best for last? Its new foldable phone, the OnePlus One, sets new benchmarks for thinness, screen quality, and camera capabilities; and our reviewer Phil Berne was certainly impressed, although I do wonder about the lack of wireless charging. Talking of phone cameras, our obsession with smartphone photography might make some of us forget how we all got here, but not me – I appreciated our coverage of the history of full-frame Sony cameras, and, going more retro, our review of the physical-film Polaroid I2.

Apple may have disappointed some by not releasing a new tablet this week (there’s still time, but just don’t make it too big, Apple), but we did get a new Apple Pencil. I know, not that exciting – maybe Apple will surprise us with a November M2 iMac. The world of wearables proved a busier space, with Fitbit cleaning up its own app-related mess, Garmin working behind the scenes on a slew of new products, and the latest Meta/Ray-Ban smart glasses collaboration proving to be more style than substance.
Want to know where the real buzz is this week? The build-up to the Black Friday deals bonanza. Turns out that most retailers can’t wait until next month to slash their prices, and have been doing just that since shortly after Amazon wound up its second Prime Day of the year.

Put simply, if you thought the world of technology would be slowing down for the holidays, you were wrong.

Let’s get to it…

A 14-inch iPad is a bad idea, and my big mistake is proof
The iPad range currently maxes out at 12.9 inches with the iPad Pro (Future)
Rumors suggest that Apple may be toying with the idea of making a massive, by tablet standards, 14-inch iPad Pro, among other iPad innovations, and Lance Ulanoff has some thoughts on why an iPad with a laptop-sized screen isn't a great idea.

    Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses review: stylish but limited
    Meta's smart glasses are available in a wide range of frame and lens combinations (Meta)
    We've been putting Meta and Ray-Ban's new smart glasses through their paces, and while they're fun to use at times and undoubtably stylish, we think they're lacking in key areas – notably the camera experience, but also the audio and their AI features.
