Capcom sent out the following

 

The sequel to one of the most popular puzzle games of all time comes to mobile in the all new Puzzle Fighter. Developed by Capcom Vancouver from the ground up, the classic arcade puzzle game gets modernized with a new look and new features for free download on iPhone, iPad and Android devices. The game will be coming soon for soft-launch in select countries and a global release is planned for late 2017.

Puzzle Fighter features an outstanding roster of legendary characters and stages from popular Capcom franchises. Fan-favorites such as Ryu, Ken or Chun-Li (Street Fighter), X (Mega Man), Morrigan (Darkstalkers), Frank West (Dead Rising) and more come to life with VO and cinematic special moves. Players pick one main character each with their own strengths and benefits, to face-off in explosive gem-crushing action. In addition, two assist characters can be chosen to further enhance the abilities of the main character. Simple to learn but deep in strategy, this highly addictive puzzle game has players strategically building up gems and destroying them to unleash epic combos that can knock out their opponent. Thrilling real-time versus battles, rewarding single player options and an array of content to unlock await in this ultimate puzzle fight!

This is a certainly unique looking game. Super Puzzle Fighter II was an all time classic, and the return of the series is welcome, although some may find this to be very different than the Puzzle Fighter of the past.

Disclaimer: Game came from my own collection

Miitopia is a game that I had been unsure of when I first learned of its existence. It made sense that it would exist but I had no idea how it would function. After seeing footage though, I was hooked as this game really did have a chance to be great. After playing through the main story line, I have found that this is really a great game.

Miitopia is a solid RPG title that brings in Nintendo’s beloved Mii characters into their own Fantasy set game. This game thrusts your main character, who can even be you, onto a grand adventure. With many different jobs to choose from, it is up to you to pick the right job for you. Joining you are 9 other characters who you can make anyone you wish. Make them friends, family, celebrities, anyone you choose, and you get to pick jobs for them and eventually change jobs. Another big part of this game is the relationships that form. Pairing up characters can be done in the inn or out in the field and even in battle. Your characters relationships can really turn the tide of battle in your favor or your enemies. If all your characters hate each other of course you won’t get all of the extra damage.

The story itself is a solid one, involving an evil lord played by whoever you choose, stealing the faces of people everywhere. You can choose a character for this demon or have it auto picked. My villain ended up being Team Flare’s Boss Lysander of Pokemon X and Y fame. This villain is powerful and you will need to gather and train your friends. An interesting thing that happens is when he comes and spirits your friends away multiple times. This forces you to choose a new job and start journeying with three new characters.

Along the way, you will meet a variety of other characters who help you, while journeying through dungeons to find keys and other lost items you eventually defeat your foe. But like in most JRPGS the story is far from over as a new boss appears. Since I don’t plan on spoiling it though, I will just say as soon as this boss is defeated, you will be granted more character slots. With new characters to raise this game becomes infinite in a lot of ways. You can always start the game over, or you can grind levels of new characters in the same file.

There is always new quests to take once the boss is defeated. There really is so much to do as there are even extra jobs to find. This game really is something to be played. You not only get to cast the characters but the randomness of it all is just fantastic. Miitopia is out now on the Nintendo 3DS Family of Systems. So gather your miis and head out on a quest to take down the Dark Lord!

Ratalaika Games sent out the following

 

Developed by Stately Snail, One More Dungeon was the cave exploration action RPG that made its debut on Steam back in 2015 and now thanks to a partnership with Ratalaika Games, it will now be making its way to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita later this year.

 

One More Dungeon is a first person shooter roguelike, with procedurally generated levels and pixel-art graphics.

A roguelike that places you in the shoes of a nameless adventure seeker, whose job is to reach the final level deep within the dungeon and destroy the obelisks that are used by the forces of Evil to invade the world.

Getting there won’t be easy though as lots of enemies stand between you and your goal, but the good news is you can use all kinds of a melee weapons, magic staffs, and antique artefacts to burst your way through them.

 

Features:

 

  • Fusion of old school FPS and Roguelike games.

  • Procedurally generated levels.

  • 30+ types of enemies and 80+ items.

  • Parallel universe with manually created locations.

  • A Sanity level that can reduced by using artefacts acquired in-game.

  • Customisable gameplay in the form of modifiers that can be tweaked prior to playing, to tailor make the gameplay to one of your choosing.

This is an extremely interesting looking game. A combination of pixel art rougelikes and FPS action, this game sounds exactly like what many have been asking for. Will you be checking it out?

Get ready to flex those cartography muscles again because Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth will be launching in the Americas on Oct. 17! All of the mysteries, dangers, and FOEs that inhabit the Yggdrasil tree will be revealed very soon, so make sure your calendar is clear of any distractions. The release date in Europe will be announced at a later time.
They say that whoever reaches the top of the colossal Yggdrasil will have their greatest wish fulfilled. So what’s so hard about hiking up a tree? Well, besides being a gigantic labyrinth, the Yggrasil tree is home to many nightmarish creepy crawlies and terrifying FOEs just waiting for a tasty treat to come waltzing by. But don’t let that dampen your adventurous spirit because the Etrian Odyssey V launch edition contains many treasures that will strengthen your resolve! Here’s what you’ll get when you pre-order or otherwise grab the limited launch edition of the game:

24-Page Art Book – Beautiful character art and concept sketches by the illustrious Yuji Himukai cover the pages of this magnificent art book. The unique explorers that will fill up your party are a wonder to behold.

  • 6-Track Music CD – A grand journey is utterly droll without music, so get into the adventuring mindset with an enchanting soundtrack crafted by long-time series composer Yuzo Koshiro!
  • Outer Box – The Yggdrasil tree and eager adventurers adorn this colorful outer box which protects the precious treasures it holds within.
Fencer Class
It just wouldn’t be smart to traverse the Yggdrasil tree without someone who is pretty handy with a blade, so why not have an Earthlain Fencer watch your back when exploring? The Fencer is master of both rapier and shield, and let’s just say that during fights they really like to get straight to the point. Quick on their feet, Fencers excel at evasion, stabbing, initiating defensive buffs, stabbing, chaining together attacks with other party members, and stabbing. They can further specialize in their agility by sacrificing unnecessary equipment for speed or go all in with their swordsmanship to become a whirlwind of pain.
This is an awesome looking game. Will you be getting it when it launches?

UK-based indie development duo Bae Team haverevealed they will bring Purrfect Date to Windows PC, Mac and iOS this winter with the publishing support of the award-winning Bossa Studios (Surgeon Simulator, I am Bread). Purrfect Date is a cross between a visual novel, dating sim and dark British comedy. You, a human, will get to date cats and uncover the secrets of the mysterious Cat Island.

Throughout the game’s seven chapters, you’ll adopt the roles of multiple freshly employed research assistants on an island almost entirely populated by cats. Choose your own adventure as you romance talking cats, balance your stats and carry out your research into the dark and questionable history of the island. Drawing inspiration from trailblazing games such as Undertale, Dream Daddy, Hatoful Boyfriend, and Pony Island, there’ll be lots of twists, turns and alternate playthroughs to keep you replaying.

Purrfect Date is the personal project of Bossa Studios’ content producer, Oliver Hindle, and his girlfriend, Ruby-Mae Roberts.

“Oliver and I were lazing around one day, itching to play a game, but nothing really grabbed our interest, so we started talking about what we’d do if we could make the ideal game for us. Cats, intrigue, dating sims, the TV show Lost… all of these things became the ingredients that went into making Purrfect Date. It’s an amalgamation of everything we love, and in essence, a love letter to each other (and cats),” said Ruby-Mae Roberts, Co-founder of Bae Team.

After finding success on Steam Greenlight, a true mark of quality and excellence, they entered into a publishing and co-development deal with Bossa Studios.

“We love to create games in ways that other developers, studios and publishers would shy away from. At Bossa, we embrace crazy ideas from the team, and when Oliver said he was working on a dating simulator about cats, we knew it was something we would support,” said Imre Jele, Co-founder of Bossa Studios.

The game can now be added to players’ wishlists on Steam here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/520600/Purrfect_Date.

For more information, follow the game on YouTube, Twitter,  Facebook and Instagram.

This is an interesting game. There is no doubt that many will be interested in this.
