: Here's a look at Mighty No. 9's multiplayer
Yesterday I posted a full hands-on with Mighty No. 9, detailing its ins and outs, as well as showing off the Military Base stage that was included in the beta version of the game in video form.
I bet you didn't know that the game is also going to include a multiplayer element called Online Race Battle though. Here's a video of Keiji Inafune and Inti Creates developer Takuya Aizu squaring off in the mode.
: Persona 5 director apologizes for showing so little, thanks fans
Persona Team head Katsura Hashino is always quick to thank the fans patiently waiting for Persona 5. We got our first trailer this weekend, though it's all anime scenes, nothing in-game. Hashino posted a message on the Persona blog, translated by Siliconera.
"I apologize for only being able to show so little, but it would make me happy to know that you all have been able to get a glimpse of the game’s atmosphere," which includes a new setting, "reversed from the previous title, as the title will depict the lives of youths living in a setting of a big city."
Hashino confirmed the PS4 and PS3 releases would be simultaneous in 2015. The rest of the message is a mix of thanks to fans, amazement over how big Persona has gotten (including side projects like the anime). and talk about working again with character designer Shigenori Soejima and composer Shoji Meguro.

: Pre-order Destiny at the Microsoft store, get a $10 gift card
Destiny is nearly upon us. Whether the hype was warranted is completely up in the air (no one has a copy yet as servers are not live), but if you're taking the plunge now regardless, you have another option -- the Microsoft Store.
If you pre-order at said outlet, you'll net a $10 Xbox gift card digital code, as well as release-day delivery by 2PM PST. The gift card is good until December 31st 2015, and can be used at Microsoft and Xbox online stores.

: Mortal Kombat X gameplay with classic Sub-Zero vs. Scorpion
Here's some footage from the build of Mortal Kombat X that we previewed at PAX. Not so curated and fatality heavy, hopefully it offers a look at how it is differentiating itself from Mortal Kombat 9 and NetherRealm's more recent Injustice: Gods Among Us.
: Rockman Xover gets another big bad, the female Oro S
If you have't been following Rockman Xover, the game might not be that great as a Mega Man release, but it has some pretty awesome boss designs. The newest character is no exception -- the "Maiden of Lightning," Oro S.
She looks to clearly control the powers of electricity, complete with an electro-whip. You can check out her theme music below. Again, these creations look perfect for a new Mega Man X game.
: Capcom teams with Dimps on new fighter, probably Street Fighter V
Capcom studio producer Yoshinori Ono took to Twitter, as he is wont to do, informing us that Capcom is working with Dimps on a new fighting game.
"We are recruiting colleagues to work together with us at Dimps studio for new FG," the tweet reads.
Dimps was formed by Street Fighter co-creators Takashi Nishiyama and Hiroshi Matsumoto and the company co-developed Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter IV, and Street Fighter x Tekken. Could be the two are working on a new, new fighter, but Street Fighter V makes the most sense.

Square Enix has just sent over word that Europe is getting a demo for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call. It'll drop on September 4th, and will feature two songs -- "Edgar and Sabin's Theme," and "Those Who Fight."
To be honest gameplay is very similar to the original game, so only go through the effort of downloading if you haven't played the series before. The full game will arrive on September 16th, but we'll have our full review available shortly before release.
