Persona 5 R Officially Announced By Atlus

Atlus officially announced Persona 5 R, the latest version of its critically acclaimed RPG. So far, only a teaser video and website have been released, but neither of them reveal what the new title will contain.

Persona 5 R, What Is It?

Both the website and the teaser trailer indicate that Atlus will have more to reveal on Persona 5 R in March 2019. The video shows off a PlayStation Logo in the beginning, which means whatever the developer has planned will be on the PS4. "New Projects" can also be heard throughout the teaser, leading many to believe Atlus will have a lot more to reveal in the next couple of months.

Much like Capcom, Atlus has been known to release enhanced secondary editions of their popular titles. Both Persona 3 FES and Persona 4 Golden are examples of Atlus remastering and expanding an already lengthy game and Persona 5 R could potentially follow the same path.

Bring It To The Switch!

Many fans are hopeful that this means a version of Persona 5 will finally appear on the Nintendo Switch. Speculation has also been increased by the recent reveal that Joker (Persona 5's protagonist) will appear in Super Smash Ultimate's first Character DLC. This wouldn't be Atlus' first portable Persona as both Persona 3 and 4 got handheld adaptations.

Persona 5 initially launched in March of 2017 and was well received by critics and fans alike. We'll be sure to keep a close eye on Persona 5 R so be sure to keep checking back here at GigamaxGames.com for all the latest information.

Bloodstained No Longer Coming To Mac Or Linux

The upcoming side scroller Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, from the producer of Castlevania, Koji Igarashi, removed their support for Mac and Linux based operating systems. This news follows the developers' cancellation of the PlayStation Vita version, a delay into 2019, and adding resources from the developer behind the Shantae series, WayFoward.

Igarashi Breaks the Bloodstained News

This news was revealed by Igarashi himself on a post made through Kickstarter.

“Bloodstained will no longer be supported on Mac and Linux,” he wrote. “We have made this tough decision due to challenges of supporting middleware and online feature support and making sure we deliver on the rest of the scope for the game. We will be offering backers who planned to play the game on Mac and Linux the option to change the platform of their order.”

The post also included instructions on how backers can switch the platform they selected. Currently, the development team is set to produce versions of Bloodstained for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.

Kickstarter and Fans Made Bloodstained Possible

Bloodstained's journey began with a Kickstarter request that was able to secure over $5 million from 65,000 backers. The game was ranked 16 on the all-time top earners of the donation platform, grossing even more money the Dark Souls board game. Initially the game was supposed to release in March 2017, but delays have set it back to sometime 2019.

Unfortunately, the failure of Kickstarter video game projects to meet their own deadlines has led to a sharp decline in people donating money to projects. Funding fell from $42.5 million in 2015 to $17 million in 2018.

Subnautica Co-Op Mod Is Now a Reality

Gamers searching for a sea-fearing adventure will want to pick up Subnautica. This survival-sandbox developed by, Unknown Worlds Entertainment , was just enhanced by a talented modder with a co-op mod. The mod, Nitrox, allows friends on PC to play together. Subnautica is a spectacular single-player experience but the massive ocean planet is absolutely big enough for two.

Subnautica Co-Op [Nitrox] Gameplay



Going by Sunrunner, the developer leading the project was given the blessing by Unknown Worlds Entertainment to pursue the project. Sunrunner did say that the mod is still in the very early stages of development but it is available now. Sunrunner ensures gamers can now play co-op Subnautica, but it will still be some time before the mod is complete. The foundation for co-op play has been created. Synced player movement, basic animations, base building, and item drops have all been squared away. Currently, the game is prepared for casual play. Those that are looking for a polished, uninterrupted experience might want to wait.

Co-Op Subnautica So Far…

  • Client / Server Communication
  • Player movement, picking up, and dropping item syncing
  • “Most” furniture interactions (medkit fabricators, chargers, misc. containers)
  • Power Management
  • Long-range world syncing
  • Base building
  • New HUD for remote players
  • Basic player animations
  • Seamoth & Exosuit Syncing
  • Rudimentary chat

The co-op mod for Subnautica is available now on the developers' Nexus page. Nitrox is open-source and Sunrunner is actively inviting interested individuals to get involved with the project. Those that want to help bring a stable, complete, co-op Subnautica experience to the world can learn more on Sunrunners Nexus Page and join the Discord server.

Subnautica is a world filled with terror, adventure, and challenges. Beautiful on its own, any experience is enhanced when friends join the party. Subnautica in its original form is now available on PS4, Xbox One, Windows, and MAC. Nitrox is only available on PC.  The Gigamax Games crew are huge fans of this indie masterpiece. Be sure to check back on GigamaxGames.com for the latest video game news, reviews, and updates. Expect some Subnautica gameplay videos coming, soon!

Jump Force Reveals My Hero Academia Character

The developer behind the upcoming anime fighting game, Jump Force, has revealed that Izuku Midoriya, the protagonist of My Hero Academia, will be joining the roster. A recent trailer has shown the hero fighting alongside Asta from the popular series, Black Clover, which you can watch below.

Although My Hero Academia may be a relatively new series, Midoriya has seen a few costume changes as he grows into his role of "best hero." The one Bandai Namco has chosen to show off in the images and videos is called Costume Gamma and was initially worn by Midoriya when he developed his Shoot Style which switched the character's punch centric fighting style to one that leans more on kicking. It's safe to assume that Jump Force will include some of the new moves Midoriya developed at that point in the anime.

As of now, Midoriya is the only character from My Hero Academia to be featured in Jump Force. Other series are included in this anime cornucopia as well. Dragon Ball and One Piece bring upwards of 6 characters from their respective worlds, so there is potential that more My Hero characters could make their debut.

Jump Force is Shonen Jump's love letter to some of their most popular series. Some of the anime/mangas included in the 3D fighting game are Black Clover, Fist of the North Star, Dragon Ball, Naruto, Hunter x Hunter, My Hero Academia, Ruroni Kenshin, Saint Seiya, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Death Note. The game also features a brand new story that unites the Shonen Jump multiverse against a greater universe ending threat.

Jump Force officially launches on February 15th, 2019 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We here at Gigamax are interested to see if this game can live up to fan expectations so be sure to check back with us here at GigamaxGames.com for all the latest details!

Fallout 76 – Crash Before NUKE Run

Fallout 76 is receiving more than its share of negative press. Bethesda took a beloved franchise and dramatically changed its foundation. Any move like this is expected to generate a decent amount of controversy, however, Fallout 76 is also undeniably sub-par.

Fallout 76 - Crash Right Before NUKE [Clipped Stream]



The Gigamax Games crew are fans of the game as a whole. They’ve spent hours and hours exploring the larger-than-life in-game world, and when it works, it's incredible. Both Gigs and Mack constantly find themselves pointing out every aspect that makes them love it. Yet, sadly, it is deeply flawed. The clip above is from a recent Gigamax PowerHour stream. After an hour-long run to launch a Nuke, the game crashes.

Even more from Gigamax Games!

Rage follows this unfortunate display of Bethesda’s inability to keep gamers play experiences uninterrupted. There is so much Fallout 76 has to offer but the server instability, plentiful gameplay bugs, and constant hard crashes keep people from investing their time in the beautiful world. Find the full stream, below.

Fallout 76 - NUKE Run CRASH [Full Stream]



Even with all its issues, Gigs and Mack are hopeful that Bethesda will continue to support and improve Fallout 76. Right now, the game might not be what gamers expected, but there’s still a chance. Games like No Man’s Sky prove that a games initial release doesn’t always determine how a title will ultimately turn out.

Gigamax Games will be keeping a close eye on the evolution of Fallout 76. It will be interesting to see how Bethesda bounces back from the embarrassing release. This developer/publisher has an impressive reputation to protect. There’s no telling to what lengths they will go to ensure Fallout 76 turns out the way they intended.

Halo Infinite Brings Back Couch Co-Op

The developers behind the Halo series, 343 Studios recently announced a few more details for Halo Infinite. This will be the sixth entry in the long-running series and based on what was said over the course of the stream, the title is still quite a ways off. 

Halo Infinite Brings New Game Engine

Halo Infinite is utilizing a new engine 343 created specifically for the game and it could push back the release date into 2020. Fans can expect a return to four-player split-screen co-op as the developer announced that it was working on the system for the new engine right now. 343 also mentioned that the armor customization feature in Infinite will resemble the one used in Halo Reach. Additionally, players that have reached level 152 in Halo 5: Guardians will receive an additional reward in Halo Infinite when the game is released. 

Halo 5 - New Details

Some details about Halo 5 were also revealed during the stream. It was said that 343 did not have many things left to add to the shooter when it comes to armor and emblem customization. It was also implied that post launch development of the title has slowed down as members of the Halo 5 team are moved to the Halo Infinite team.

343 previously mentioned that Infinite will feature Master Chief's coolest design yet. Although, not much else has been revealed as the studio remains tight-lipped on details regarding the game's development. The studio hasn't even decided whether they're reaching for a Mature rating like the previous generation's Halo titles or Teen like Halo 5. 

Halo Infinite is currently being developed for the Xbox One and PC and we here at Gigamax can't wait to see what 343 has in store. Be sure to check back with us here at GigamaxGames.com for all the latest details on the title!

Kingdom Hearts 3 – Final Trailer Until Launch

Kingdom Hearts 3 get another tease before its January 29th, 2019 launch. Square Enix released what is most likely their final trailer until the game becomes available. It’s been nearly 12 years since Kingdom Hearts 2 and the wait is finally coming to an end. This Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer marks an important milestone for both the developer and fans. Gamers excited to dive into the world of Disney and Square Enix don’t have to wait long.

The trailer below is filled with gameplay and story details that will make any Kingdom Hearts fanatic start shaking with excitement. Its spectacular visuals don’t outshine the direction the developer took when creating one of the most highly anticipated games of the decade.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Final Trailer


Overall the trailer indicates Kingdom Hearts 3 will be the darkest, grittiest Kingdom Hearts to date. It looks as though the series grew up as their original audience became adults.

The excitement doesn’t end with the english version of the Kingdom Hearts 3 Trailer, there is also a Japanese version. It includes the Japanese soundtrack and voice acting. Anyone that wants as much Kingdom Hearts 3 as possible before 2019, the Japanese Kingdom Hearts 3 Trailer is below.



Being the last part of the Kingdom Hearts Trilogy, it will be the end of Sora’s adventure. All the characters that play a vital role in the main story show up in the trailer. Just from the short, three minute and forty-one second trailer is extraordinary and there’s no telling to what lengths the game creators went in order to send Sora off. With over 10 years since the second installment, anything less than an unforgettable, larger-than-life conclusion would be a massive disappointment.

Kingdom Hearts 3 will take place after the latest Kingdom Hearts title, Birth by Sleep. To catch up on the story and get ready for January 29th, the entire playthrough of Birth by Sleep is available below.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Playthrough


Monsters Inc, Frozen, Toy Story, Winnie the Pooh, Pirates of the Caribbean, the list goes on. Disney had years to create new stories and the partnership between this world-renowned multinational media and entertainment conglomerate and prominent developer, Square Enix is ready to bring those tales to life once again. Disney already takes imagination and puts it on the big screen, however, melding these narratives together elevates the entire experience. All the new characters, environments, and adventures are sure to resonate with audiences all over the globe.
