By now, anyone who's been to YouTube (i.e. everyone) has discovered Japan's flamboyant homosexual comic Hard Gay. Well, the trend doesn't stop there.

First up for PS3 hit-to-be Devil May Cry 4: a new hero. According to Kotaku (via a shoddy translation of top Japanese mag Famitsu) the latest adventure in the series will not star white-haired hemi-demon Dante, but instead a new lead character called Nero Angelo.
Does this really count as news? It's not like we're surprised at all to learn that there's a new Dynasty Warriors game coming out (we're up to about 40 or 50 at this point), but given its undying popularity, chances are you'll be overjoyed to learn Vol. 2's new features.
Most importantly, this army-against-one battle will let four people play together, razing waves of troops to the ground with their super-powered attacks and customized animal rides. You'll be able to care for a stable of eight
Sony has told us it has no plans to bring the LocoRoco soundtrack to our shores anytime soon - sad news for anyone who can't get enough of the cheery little blobs' peppy tunes and nonsensical lyrics.
