This is a game that slipped under the radar of most. While early trailers for Majin gained some interest, the game was quickly forgotten under the wealth of bigger budget releases at the time and was lost amidst obscurity. So why don't I take a look at the game & see if it'll spark some interest in you? A quick glance at the screenshots will probably leave you asking if this is somewhat similar to a certain other game, and while it does share some similar concepts to a game like The Last Guardian, It doesn't seem to aim for the same heights. So how does it fare?

Welcome to entry #1 of my Otaku Gamers UK Kenzan! Diary.

Seen as we're looking to increase our original content output a little here at Otaku Gamers UK, I though it might be a good idea to run something a little different. There may be a time when you need to take a break from a game for a while and the thought of putting on an anime just doesn't seem to cut it, so I'm gonna take a look at some Japanese movies you could try to break up the long hauls a little. First I'm going with my favourite director, Noboru Iguchi (Pictured above on the right, with Rina Takeda at Fantastic Fest) His films tend to be low budget & are pure Exploitation/Grindhouse fun, absurd storylines with all the usual tropes of the grindhouse scene we used to have in the west that offer up some imaginative films (in an extreme sense) Lets take a look at a few...
Screenshots & a teaser website are now live for Super Hero Generation.
