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.

Earthlock SHB Edition

We are very happy to announce that we will be relaunching Earthlock in Q1 next year. In many ways this version feels like a new game!

In fact, the changes are so big that there was no way we could keep it compatible with existing save games. In order to avoid problems where a patch would void all save games, we have set up a new game in the e-stores: EARTHLOCK

After we completed the PS4 version in January 2017 we began pre-production of Earthlock 2. However, after a few weeks of getting super excited about our next game, we realised that we were not comfortable leaving Earthlock: Festival of Magic behind as it was. A lot of the criticism we had gotten on the game by then were things we agreed with. For the initial launch we had to make quite a few cuts during the development and some of those cuts really hurt the story.

Long story short; We decided to make what we ended up internally calling the Should have been edition. That way we could leave Earthlock 1 behind us with pride and begin work on Earthlock 2.

The subtitle, Festival of Magic was an old remainder from our first kickstarter campaign and felt obsolete, so we decided to cut that, leaving us with: EARTHLOCK.

So what have we done in the last year?

  • Story: It’s massively changed. Almost from the start. We have added more depth, humor and character to the story and things that did not make sense before now do
  • Crafting: At Plumpet Island, we are happy to report that all buildings on Plumpet now have some kind of functionality
  • Side Quests: Yes, there are now side quests – as initially intended
  • Mini Games: Like treasure hunting
  • New scenes and characters
  • New and better animation
  • Improved cut scenes
  • Highly performance optimised
  • And much, much more

Important to note: Anyone who owns Earthlock: Festival of Magic will get the new game for free (Steam/GOG/PS4/XboxOne). The game is now in final QA and localization and will be published in Q1 2018.

(This is also the version that we will be launching on Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately we won’t be able to publish this version on Wii U.)

This is a great announcement to kick off the year. Are you excited, because we sure are?

HAMSTER has been on a roll lately. Their arcade archives series has seen a release on all major platforms, and they have been bringing some amazing games to modern systems such as PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, including bringing Nintendo’s classic arcade games to the Switch.

A recent interview with Famitsu has revealed much more is in store. According to HAMSTER CEO Satoshi Hamada, the company has the goal of releasing 800 Arcade Archive games. For some perspective, there are currently around 50 Arcade Archive games on the Nintendo Switch. Hopefully this goal becomes a reality and more classics come. We particularly would love to see Sega’s arcade classics made available again.

 

What would you want to see?

CD Projekt Red sent out the following

 

CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, announce the release of the Xbox One X upgrade patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. In addition, the studio announces that an upgrade patch introducing HDR support will soon be released for the PlayStation 4 Pro computer entertainment system.

The Xbox One X upgrade patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt introduces a number of graphical features and tweaks to the game across two visual fidelity options — 4K Mode and Performance Mode.

In 4K Mode, the game and all its additional content will run in 4K resolution (or supersampled on a non-4K display), featuring enhanced shadows, ambient occlusion and texture filtering, as well as higher resolution textures and gameplay at 30 fps. Switching to Performance Mode will enable dynamic resolution scaling, rendering the game at a resolution of minimum 1080p and up to 4K, while targeting 60 fps during gameplay. Both modes will additionally feature support for HDR, making the game look more vivid when played on an HDR-capable display.

The PlayStation 4 version of the game received a similar upgrade patch for the PlayStation 4 Pro system earlier in October, which introduced 4K resolution and enhancements such as improved ambient occlusion, texture filtering, as well as an all-around performance boost. Users of the PlayStation 4 Pro system can expect an additional upgrade patch, featuring support for HDR and a number of technical tweaks improving the overall experience, to be released in the near future.

This is a pretty neat update, and shows CD Projekt Red truly treats their games with respect to get the best result possible. It is also great to hear that the PS4 pro will be getting another update as well.

Are you happy with this news? Let us know!

Just in time for the holidays, iam8bit will be releasing a physical version of the critically acclaimed What Remains of Edith Finch, developed by Giant Sparrow and published by Annapurna Interactive – available exclusively for PlayStation 4 in early January. An essential addition to any PlayStation 4 physical library, What Remains of Edith Finch received rave reviews when it first launched in April, and now the beautiful yet haunting game is a contender for multiple Game of the Year awards, including best independent game at the 2017 The Game Awards.

 

In other exciting news, Annapurna Interactive and iam8bit will be releasing a vinyl soundtrack for What Remains of Edith Finch next year featuring the music of Jeff Russo, the Emmy Award winning composer behind hit TV shows Fargo, Legion and The Night Of. The music leaves players with a hummable, yet eerie melody that bonds with their very being.

What Remains of Edith Finch is a collection of strange tales about a family in Washington state. As Edith, you’ll explore the colossal Finch house, searching for stories as she explores her family history and tries to figure out why she’s the last one in her family left alive.

  • Exclusive Physical Version

  • Premium Reversible Cover Insert

  • Region Free – Worldwide Compatibility

The musical cadence of What Remains of Edith Finch is deliberately slow, immensely methodical and eventually, cathartic. Once you reach its bittersweet and triumphant conclusion, the score, at first so somber, achieves something few soundtracks do – taking the listener on a robust emotional journey.

  • Single LP

  • Brown Smoke Vinyl

  • Composed by Jeff Russo (Fargo, Legion, The Night Of)

  • Album Art by Holly Rothrock (Giant Sparrow 2D Artist)

What Remains of Edith Finch is a truly unique game, and the reception it has received has been amazing. The upcoming physical version and vinyl soundtrack are excellent additions for this wonderful game.
