If you pay attention to industry layoffs, you'll know the news media - media in general, really - is in a bad spot right now. I can't remember the last time it wasn't in a bad spot. Perhaps in the 1930's, which is the setting for News Tower, a newspaper management sim in which you attempt to construct your empire in New York from 1929 onwards.

I'm Fascinated by All the Tom and Jerry Merchandise in Japan

If you follow Japanese merchandise sites, you might have already realized that Tom and Jerry is surprisingly popular in Japan. So much so that Cartoon Network Japan even aired short, incredibly cute episodes of an original anime based on the duo. I mean, look at this.


But what I love about this is both the range and execution of such things. The array of items are really embracing the nostalgia of the series. Yes, we have that incredibly cute spin-off Warner Bros. did based on the characters. However the majority of the actual Tom and Jerry merchandise we're seeing on a regular basis embrace the original designs and characters, as well as the absurdity that goes along with them. 

For example, there were two Banpresto Ichiban Kuji featuring the characters, with one that appeared in February 2023 and another in February 2024. The former was a more peaceful one with the "always together morning till night" one with a blanket, figures, keychains, and towels of the cat and mouse generally relaxing together. The more recent "one peaceful day" one featured a plush of Tom hugging Jerry, another figure, and more keychains and accessories. They're these really wholesome ones that show both of the characters at their best. 

Even the Japanese Warner Bros store direct is just packed with things I didn't expect. Like sure, there are the sorts of keychains and novelties like chocolates that you'd probably expect. I didn't expect things like ¥6,600 (~$44) wallets and ¥4,620 (~$31) grocery bags, but there they are. Even more shocking was the fact there's a themed hot plate (complete with takoyaki insert) that not only came in at ¥12,900 (~$87), but sold out

Speaking of the more expensive items, did you know that costly accessories involving Tom and Jerry characters are incredibly common? I had no idea. But a quick peek even showed Q-pot is releasing jewelry that, once again, is selling out and involving the cat and mouse. Some are pretty normal, like Jerry perched on a wedge of cheese as a charm or necklace. But the companies making them are embracing the more absurd nature of the duo too. For example, there's an $82.80 Tom double finger ring. It makes it look like the cat is trapped between two of a person's fingers. It calls to mind some of the more slapstick scenes. 

It's that absurdity that perhaps makes Takara Tomy's various merchandise and toys based on Tom and Jerry the best pieces of all. Like as I'm search for ideas for topics to cover for news and such, happening upon these gachapon keychains and figures makes my day. There's the Yummy Food line, which puts Tom, Jerry, and Tuffy/Nibbles in various food items like sandwiches. The cube and squashed Toms in the Funny Art Collection 4 are great. (Though maybe the Funny Art Collection 3 with paper doll tail Tom is better?) I almost imported a 3D rubber mascot keychain of "Waffle Jerry." 

I guess it's just really amusing to see these different takes and ways another country is appreciating characters I didn't expect them to enjoy so much. Which means getting to see Tom and Jerry merchandise that makes me realize that oh, right, I used to love that show as a kid too. (Though I still 100% believe Jerry could be a jerk.) Plus, exploring the items means getting to see some silly things brought back to life.

It's the Perfect Time for Hotel Dusk and Last Window to Return

There is no better time than the present to be a visual novel and adventure game fan. The genre has experienced a sort of renaissance within the last decade, with plenty of new and creative titles like the AI: The Somnium Files series or Paranormasight keeping things fresh, and timeless classics like Famicom Detective Club or Type-Moon's legendary Fate/stay night receiving their first ever English release. However, among the genre's vast catalog, I am sorely missing Kyle Hyde's Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and Last Window: The Secret of Cape West.

Image via Nintendo and Cing

For those unfamiliar, the Kyle Hyde series of games are two investigation titles developed by the now defunct King and released in 2007 and 2010, respectively, for the Nintendo DS. The series focuses on jack of all trades and former NYPD detective Kyle Hyde, a man whose job is to snoop around buildings, bother the inhabitants of apartments, and fulfill the mysterious and hyper-specific contracts that his employer sends him. Nothing shady and mysterious, surely.

The main attraction of the series was its paperback novel aesthetic and gameplay style. To play the games you needed to hold the DS console sideways like a book. You would control Kyle and explore environments with the touchscreen. Characters would occupy a different screen each during dialogue, lending an air of tension and confrontation to the delicate verbal clashes and questionings. The Last Window sequel even included an in-game novel retelling the game's story.

This novel approach (pun intended) wasn't just a fun gimmick, as it made for two very charming and unique titles in the Nintendo DS catalog. And I don't think that the gimmick would necessarily translate poorly into modern platforms. Undeniably, the games would require a lot of work to update them to modern standards, but we have a perfect example of how to revise a series like Hotel Dusk and Last Window. Also developed by Cing, the Another Code games just received a remake in the form of Another Code: Recollection for the Nintendo Switch, and I never thought the games would ever see the light of day again.

Image via Nintendo and Cing

The new remake offers a jump in graphical fidelity accompanied by an unavoidable change in style, as well as the gameplay being adapted to suit the Switch. However, developer Arc System Works was able to accurately retain the tone and feel of the series thanks to the company housing many former Cing staff members, including designer, artist, and Kyle Hyde series director Taisuke Kanasaki.

The remake even includes a small nod to the detective that wasn't present in the original, and that I won't spoil for those looking to jump into the remakes (and you definitely should.) Seeing folks at Arc System Works still remember the detective fills me with nostalgia, and makes me want to play as Kyle Hyde once again, maybe even see his story continued.

Among dedicated fans of Cing's catalog, Kyle Hyde also received some renewed attention back in the summer of 2023, thanks to data miners discovering some of the original actors that served as models for the rotoscoped character animations in Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and Last Window: The Secret of Cape West.

Over a decade after its last detective adventure, it is clear that Kyle Hyde persists in the minds of its original creators and the minds of fans. And with Arc System Works and Nintendo willing to give another chance to the Another Code series, there is no better time than the present for Kyle Hyde to return.

Another Code: Recollection is now available for the Nintendo Switch.

     Why haven't Palworld creators been sued by Nintendo?If you've had the joy of playing Palworld or even seen any media surrounding it, you may have noticed that the similarities to Pokémon are uncanny. Nintendo is notoriously protective of its intellectual property, so it begs the question, how have Pocket Pair not been sued into oblivion? Not the first of its kind I think the main fortress Palworld can stand behind is the freedom of the genre. Palworld isn't the first game to use the pocket monsters idea and develop it into an RPG. Other titles like Monster Sanctuary and Nexomon have both taken the concept and turned it into a role-playing game. Nintendo has left both of these games well alone. Screenshot: PC Invasion Along with these pocket monster RPG-style games are a huge selection of other similar manga/anime. Yu-Gi-Oh and Digimon have had huge followings and all the related media that goes along with it.

     One year later, this roguelike RPG sees a 567% spike in player count

When Hellcard was first released in February 2023, it had a pretty promising start to life in the ether with a player count in the thousands. Since then, however, the card battler game has seen a rapid decline, with only a couple of hundred players still devoting their time to the deck builder. But, in the last 30 days, Hellcard's popularity has grown, and the last 48 hours have been particularly fruitful for the fantasy roguelike game.

JP Games has announced development on its new RPG project, Shallah. It will be about a love story between a human and a goddess, and take inspiration from One Thousand and One Nights. [Thanks, PR Times!]

According to JP Games, it will be a cutting-edge "adult" RPG about themes of life and death. Aside from the love story, it will also feature battles that use magic and sorcery. Shallah will have a worldwide release, though there is no information yet in regards to the consoles. The first key visual from the game shows a city lit up under the moon, with many clouds. The city itself has a Middle Eastern look to it.

This is a collaborative work between JP Games and Quantum Solutions, which is a company that focuses on developing AI and selling hardware. Quantum Solutions offered to help JP Games with Shallah, which, according to CEO Hajime Tabata, was in development for a long time. JP Games is in charge of planning the game and developing it. It will use Pegasus World Kit, which is a middleware it produced in 2021, to create Metaverses to develop Shallah. Quantum Solutions will help to support JP Games in the game's design, such as in its worldview. It will also own the IP.

Shallah is currently in development.

pokemon happy meal mcdonald's japan

McDonald's Japan has revealed the Happy Meal toys for its upcoming Pokemon collaboration. You'll be able to start getting them in McDonald's from February 9, 2024.

There will be two types of toys. The first type will be tags that you'll be able to use when playing Pokemon Mezastar. Pokemon Mezastar is limited to Japan, and it is an arcade game that you can play using physical tags.

These tags contain the Pokemon that you'll use, and when you catch a Pokemon, it'll spit out another tag for you to keep. There will be six variations of Pokemon to collect from the McDonald's Happy Meals, including Terastallized versions of Koraidon and Miraidon.

The other type of Pokemon Happy Meals toy is likely what McDonald's teased in late January 2024. The teaser then showed several Pokemon, such as Pikachu and Espurr, standing in a house. From February 9, 2024, you'll be able to get stickers and coloring books of cute Pokemon and common household items. The name of this series is Pokemon Peaceful Place.

Aside from the four Pokemon McDonald's originally teased, there will also be Pichu, Scorbunny, and Rowlet. McDonald's Japan will hand out the Happy Meal exclusive Pokemon Mezastar tags, as well as Pokemon Peaceful Place stickers and coloring books, from February 9, 2024.

ys oath in felghana ps4 ps5

Nihon Falcom has announced a release date for the PS4 and PS5 versions of Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana. The much anticipated JRPG will come out on May 23, 2024.

The game's first release will include a bonus item, which is the soundtrack of Ys III. However, those who get the digital version of Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana will get the digital version of the soundtrack. Meanwhile, those who purchase the game's physical version will get an actual CD. The CD will be the repackaged version of "Music From Ys III."

Ys: The Oath in Felghana originally came out in 2005 and is a remake of Ys III. It first came out on the PC and later appeared on the PSP and the Nintendo Switch. The Switch version had a 2023 release and featured voiceovers, including casting Yuki Kaji (Eren in Attack on Titan, Todoroki in My Hero Academia) for protagonist Adol.

There are some differences in the plot compared to the original Ys III and additional scenes. Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana is an HD remastered version of the Switch version, though you will be able to switch back to the classic PSP and PC versions of the character sprites. 

Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana will come out for the PS4 and PS5 on May 23, 2024.

ffvii rebirth cloud sephiroth synergy ability

Square Enix has posted some information on Sephiroth and Cloud's Synergy Ability in FFVII Rebirth. There is also a short clip of it on its Twitter (X) account.


In Sephiroth and Coud's Synergy Ability, the two of them attack an enemy simultaneously. It ends with Sephiroth and Cloud looking at each other, though with very different emotions on their faces. As for Square Enix's description of the Synergy Ability, it describes Sephiroth's attacks as an elegant dance. Meanwhile, Cloud is doing his best to slice at the enemy with his sword. The name of their Synergy Ability is Cross Spiral.

Synergy Abilities will be a new battle mechanic in FFVII Rebirth, with many different possible combinations within the team. It is a powerful attack that requires both characters and will drain their ATB gauges. Some combinations Square Enix teased thus far include Red XIII and Yuffie, Barret and Cloud, and Aerith and Tifa. Synergizing was also a mechanic in FFVII Intergrade, in which you could drain both Yuffie and Sonon's ATB gauges to launch a combination attack.

FFVII Rebirth is in development and will come out for the PS5 on February 29, 2024. The console exclusivity arrangement will end on May 29, 2024.

     Persona 3 Reload First Old Document GuideElizabeth has dozens of requests in Persona 3 Reload that are a bit cryptic, and one of the stranger ones is the first Old Document. If you're scratching your head with this request then don't worry because here's the answer you need. How to get the first Old Document in Persona 3 Reload The first Old Document is found on the 22nd floor of Tartarus. It doesn't matter which day you head here as it's really hard to miss. As soon as you reach the 22nd floor, you'll likely be stopped from progressing through Tartarus until the next major story beat. But this room is tiny and the chest containing the first Old Document can be found in the center. As soon as you have free reign to explore Tartarus in Persona 3 Reload, you can go get the first Old Document. I wouldn't advise rushing through each floor to get to it though. Again, there's no time constraint for getting to this floor outside of the game's usual pacing. The item will...

     Let's get this out of the way: I'm a huge Stargate fan. My dad raised me on a diet of sci-fi from Star Trek to Farscape, and a staple of that diet was Stargate in its various incarnations. The exception is the original Stargate movie which I simply don't care about. But I've watched Stargate SG-1 and its spinoff Stargate: Atlantis somewhere in the region of half a dozen times each, and read quite a few of the novels that continued the stories from where the shows left off. I've always been a little baffled by the lack of video games based on the Stargate license, so Stargate: Timekeepers was an exciting prospect.
