It looks like musou spin-off Persona 5 Strikers will be heading west in February
Persona 5 Strikers - Warriors series developer Omega Force's musou spin on Atlus' acclaimed JRPG - will seemingly be making its way west on 23rd February next year, according to an official trailer that's since been pulled. Persona 5 Strikers has been out in Japan (where it's known as Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers) since February, delivering a sequel set six months after the events of the main game. It's the latest in an ever-lengthening list of big-name franchises to be given the Warriors treatment - following on from the likes of One Piece, Berserk, Fire Emblem, Dragon Quest, and The Legend of Zelda - but it's notable for the way it builds on the frantic, many-enemied hack-and-slash slaughter musou games are generally known for.

Torchlight 2 is currently free on the Epic Games Store
Thursday means another free game on the Epic Store, and this week's offering is an oldie-but-goodie, arriving in the form of Runic Games' much-loved action-RPG Torchlight 2. Runic Games, which sadly shut its doors in 2017, was formed by a number of industry veterans including brothers Max and Erich Schaefer, creators of the Diablo series, and the original Torchlight had plenty in common with Blizzard's popular action-RPG. Torchlight 2, which launched in 2012, fleshed the winning formula out further, delivering a critically acclaimed chunk of captivating dungeon-crawling and class-based hack-and-slash action, all set in a vibrant, lovingly crafted world.
