Immortal Redneck, the Egyptian-themed first-person shooter with roguelike elements, will rocket onto Xbox One and PlayStation 4 with PlayStation 4 Pro-enhanced graphics and framerate on Feb. 27, 2018. A Nintendo Switch version is also planned for a Q1 2018 release.

 

When our titular Redneck wrecks his dune buggy in the sun-bleached sands of Egypt, he wakes to find himself mummified. Now he’s got a hankerin’ to find out who wrapped him up, and old-school arcade first-person shooting, a healthy arsenal, and the blessings of ancient gods are the only boons on his quest.

 

The Redneck’s answers lie in the Great Pyramids of Giza. These ancient wonders are protected by an army of monsters that can send our hillbilly back to the grave and restructure the pyramids’ labyrinthine halls. Players can attempt to uncover the secrets of the pyramids through the standard mode, or try to best their own personal record in the Infinite Tower mode, where endless floors await.

 

The Redneck will have to frantically blast, circle strafe, and bunny-hop around Egyptian warriors and sarcophagi, and he’s going to have fun doing it. Except for when he dies…again. And again. But a silly little thing like death is not the end in Immortal Redneck. With the power of resurrection, gold earned in one life can be used to unlock permanent upgrades from a persistent skill tree, such as health and damage bonuses, or new favors from the gods.

 

With more than 50 weapons to find, ranging from traditional to futuristic and fantastical, no run plays quite like the next. Each attempt is further shaken up by over 100 Scroll Modifiers that enemies drop that can help or harm in various degrees. Players might find a Metamorphosis Scroll with a chance to turn opponents into chickens, or the Sorry, Not Sorry scroll that swaps out all weapons for random new ones.

 

Each of the nine favors from the gods provides the Redneck with different starting weapons and abilities. Seth, the God of Storms, begins with a Taser Sword, Tesla Coil, and Electric Flamethrower, which allow him to throw electric balls as his active ability. Neith, the Goddess of Hunting, can send a falcon to attack her enemies while also using a Sniper Rifle and Tranquilizer Gun. It doesn’t hurt to have a god on your side when mummies need a beating.

 

“Immortal Redneck has been a wonderful success on Steam and we look forward to bringing the fun to consoles,” said Guillermo Andrades, Co-Founder, Crema. “Look out for our fusion of classic FPS and roguelike when it hits PS4 and Xbox next February, with the Nintendo Switch port following closely behind.”

 

Immortal Redneck will be available on Feb. 27, 2018 in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Polish, and Korean for $19.99 USD, €19.99, £16.24.

 

For more information please explore Immortal Redneck’s official site.

 

This is definitely different. It is great that so many indie games are putting a new spin on things, and hopefully this will in fact be great. Will you be checking this out?

The Nintendo Switch has accomplished things thought impossible. Companies that have traditionally not worked with Nintendo have come on board and brought with them some amazing games. One of these is a port of 2016’s DOOM. But how does a powerhouse game hold up on Nintendo’s hybrid system?

I was excited for the port of DOOM from the beginning but was worried about how it would perform. The Switch is not as powerful as the PS4 and Xbox One, let alone high end PCs, so there was reason to worry. However, I am delighted to say that the game proves what I said at the very beginning: Nintendo Switch accomplishes things thought to be impossible. DOOM is a technical marvel on the Switch, both in docked and handheld mode. While sacrifices have been made to ensure optimal performance, the game is still here and still feels as fast paced and smooth as ever. It may be half the FPS of the other versions, but still retains the feel of intensity.

There are some issues I do have, mainly that Snapmap is not included. This was my favourite part of the original release, and the improvements that were made on it since release made it even better. It is sorely missed in this version, and I hope it can eventually come later. What I do like however, is that the multiplayer was not gimped in any way. This ensured that the Switch would have a great multiplayer shooter and I feel DOOM has performed well in that regard. The Switch seems to allow the multiplayer to stand out more for now, mainly due to the lack of competition in the market, but I was shocked how well fans took to it. It seems the improvements made over the original release were appreciated by making a new first impression.

DOOM is a great game and an amazing port on Switch. It may not have Snapmap but it has everything else and it plays great. Even the arcade mode just works well when you want to play for a few minutes while on the go. Portable DOOM wasn’t thought to be a good idea, but Bethesda and Panic Button proved everyone wrong. I highly recommend this!

This past week saw the announcement of SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy  during the Nintendo Direct Mini. However, there was some controversy over mention of one button moves as well as the fact that that the Japanese trailer showed off more revealing outfits for fanservice. This led some to be concerned  tgarthe game will be censored in the west and that it would be too simple a game to be a good fighter.

In response, NISA has stepped in to assure fans that the situation is not as feared.

 

Hopefully this clears up any worry.

Ys VIII was announced for Switch this past week, and now some new details have emerged. The Switch version will not be handled by Falcom directly, with NISA is publishing the game in North America, and Nippon Ichi Software taking care of the release in Japan.

A discussion was held between Falcom CEO Toshihiro Kondo and Nippon Ichi CEO Sohei Niikawa on the NIS website that revealed some new details. For example, Niikawa  feels that the three ways to play on Switch: portable, TV, and tabletop modes, are extremely attractive for players. He believes this is the key reason for the Switch’s success overseas and in Japan, since he has heard that Japanese players prefer to play games in portable mode, while western players prefer to play them at home.

Nikawa then discussed the close relationship between himself and Kondo and how they have helped each other grow as businessmen and game designers. The close relationship was the reason Nippon Ichi reached out to Falcom about bringing one of their games to Switch after the success of Disgaea 5 on the system. Because Falcom is a small company, it is necessary for them to reach out to partners, and this is where NIS comes in.

It is good to hear that success publishers are seeing on the Switch is leading them to seek out new games to bring to the system.
