All you role players and Japanophiles out there have something to get excited about this week, besides the vernal equinox. Publisher XSEED announced that they are bringing three new RPGs, released in Japan last year, to the North American market later this year. Here's the scoop on these transpacific titles:
Dungeon Maker: Hunting Ground (PSP)
Imagine a bizarre cross-breeding of Diablo and Viva Pinata, and you've got a good idea of what to expect from Dungeon Maker. As the Architect, you
It's been almost thirty years since it premiered in theaters, and nearly two since The Warriors bopped onto consoles, but the upcoming PSP release has us enthusiastic enough to continue speaking in the films' dialogue, so bear with us, or you hasty lot can click the Movies tab
If you go all misty eyed when someone mentions Streets of Rage or Double Dragon, then you've either a) got cataracts or b) got a squishy place in your heart for retro side-scrolling beat-'em-ups.
If it's the latter (and we hope it is), then you're going to be over the rose-tinted moon when you see that Rockstar has included Armies of the Night - a playable homage to those classic games of yore - in its upcoming PSP gang banger, The
Let the haters and the old ladies complain about how those newfangled video computer games teach us to be killers; we've always taken the view that violent games are a pressure valve for blowing off steam in a harmless way. Don't believe it? Play something fierce and bloody the next time you're in a really bad mood, and then try telling us you didn't feel better afterward.
But why stop there? If games can keep you from climbing a clock tower and expressing your inner pain in the form of

Those discarded PS2 Buzz controllers have another outlet with Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Party Edition, which offers some virtual money making madness alongside three buddies. Hit the images tab above to see more shots from this Chris Tarrant-less quiz
A trio of trademark applications have appeared in Japan rekindling hope that the Katamari series may make a return. For last month developer Namco Bandai registered three new names: Beautiful Katamari Damacy, Katamari Damacy Tres Bien and Katamari Damacy-kun.
And while our hopes have been raised again, the names can't be taken as proof of the existence of new games because applications can also cover potential TV shows, movies, fluffy dolls, sweets and just about anything
If Rockstar didn't exist, would you even know where your PSP is? The publisher's generous offerings of extra GTA content in Liberty and Vice City Stories are, for some gamers, the only thing keeping the non-Nintendo portable system out of the space between their couch cushions.
With the just announced release of The Warriors on PSP for this holiday season, Rockstar might have come to the rescue again. And if you're at all familiar with the 1979 cult film, you should expect that rescue to
We at GamesRadar value you, our dear readers, and we know how much you folks freak out about the WWE. So, we decided to give you a special treat by capturing all the intro videos for all of the major wrestlers from the upcoming WWE Smackdown! vs RAW 2007 (the dudes that publisher THQ would give us the okay for, anyway) and post them up here for you to download and enjoy on your iPod or PSP (just right click the name and choose "save as"). We'll be updating this list daily until they're all up,

Last year Rockstar gave '70s punchsploitation flick The Warriors a new lease of life as a PS2 and Xbox brawler - and now it's to make a comeback on PSP as well.
Announced by Rockstar president Sam Houser as "setting the definitive bar for the brawler genre on PSP by delivering an extremely stylish and exceptionally deep experience," it won't be a straight port of the console game but a reworking by the studio responsible for Liberty City Stories and Vice City

The first batch of screenshots for the PSP version of WWE SmackDown! vs Raw 2007 has recently emerged, showing an impressive-looking scaled down version of the next wrestling ruckus.
While we've had a pretty good look at SmackDown! 2007 on Xbox 360, publisher THQ has been more cagey about showing us the other, less pretty versions of the wrestlefest. A trickle of PS2 screens started in July but, for a long time, there has been no sign of a PSP screenshot - odd,
