‘Fantasy Strike’ Takes 2D Brawler Action To The Nintendo Switch

setsuki1Now in Steam Early Access, the visually arresting 2D brawler Fantasy Strike will be released this summer (exact date tbd). This debut will coincide with its debut on the PlayStation 4 console and PC.

Fantasy Strike is the perfect fighting game for Switch,” said David Sirlin, lead designer of the title. “The Switch is a take-anywhere console, so fighting games would be great on it if not for how notoriously difficult they are to control Usually, playing a fighting game on a JoyCon would be tough, but Fantasy Strike is designed specifically for that. Detach the JoyCons, give one to a friend, and you can play a deep, strategic fighting game anywhere.”

During the latest patch, professional voice acting and facial animation for all 10 characters, along with a new Team Battle mode, have been added. Sirlin Games has also combined its own network tech with GGPO networking to give players a more seamless gaming experience. We’ll be reviewing the game in the coming months (possibly on the PlayStation 4) so stay tuned for our coverage!

Space Age Puzzler ‘Q.U.B.E. 2’ Trailer Launches With An Air Of Mystery

qube22

First person puzzle adventures, at its best, will challenge gamers to the nth degree, and what makes Q.U.B.E. 2 an interesting adventure lies in the mystery behind archeologist Amelia Cross’ journey. Awakening to an alien world with no memory how she landed in the area, Cross, must navigate herself in a new environment and find her way home. As she overcomes the challenges that cross her path, Cross gets closer to discovering the truth, and with 80 puzzles to spare, our heroine has a ton of work to do.

“With Q.U.B.E. 2 we have pushed the boundaries of what a small independent team can create in a first person puzzle game,” said Toxic Games Managing Director Dan Da Rocha. “In addition to creating incredible new puzzles, we also focused on narrative from this game’s inception. Amelia’s emotional journey throughout the adventure has given the puzzles a greater thematic depth and spurred us on to design some truly unique challenges. We think this has truly elevated the gameplay experience of Q.U.B.E. 2 to another level.”

Check out the launch trailer and tell us what you think!

Q.U.B.E. 2 comes out March 13 on PC and the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles.

We hope you have as much fun playing it as we did making it.”

‘Batman: The Enemy Within’ Launches Episode Two With ‘The Pact’

batmantheenemy“The Pact,” episode two of Telltale Games’ Batman: The Enemy Within, comes out October 3 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and Android.

The just released trailer for “The Pact” shows that The Joker’s (Anthony Ingruber) right hand woman Harley Quinn continues her bat-wielding (no pun intended) villainy throughout Gotham’s crime ridden streets, and it’s up to the Dark Knight (Troy Baker) to take her down. An unidentified antagonist shows up on the tail end of the clip, and although most fans don’t need a teaser to whet their appetites, it’s still a welcome sight.

Although players’ choices from the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series spills over to the latest installment, Batman: The Enemy Within also functions as a standalone title. Fans of physical media can also purchases a season pass disc starting October 3.

Action Platformer ‘Hidden Dragon Legend’ Hits PlayStation 4 In September

hiddendragon1

Hidden Dragon Legend, an action platforming game that is set in ancient China, hits PlayStation 4 September 19 and Steam later this year. The title is part of the Oasis Games lineup that will be shown at Gamescon along with Light Tracer and Fringe Wars.

In Hidden Dragon Legend gamers will hack and slash their way to battle intimidating foes and bosses as they attempt to take a powerful object called the Dragon Cauldron. Though this item grants inhuman powers, it renders the respective warrior a slave to an evil faction, and gamers go on a journey of revenge to settle the score and defeat their supposed masters.

The trailer to Hidden Dragon Legend features top notch graphics and what looks to be an epic boss fight. Watching a warrior run through a tree lined forest is also eye catching. Oasis Games is also claiming its title has “Metroidvnia-style” puzzles (channeling an instant classic is refreshingly heady in my opinion) and an immersive skill tree for customization. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think of Hidden Dragon Legend!
