Street Fighter® V: Arcade Edition, an updated version of the latest game in the hit fighting series exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC is available physically and digitally in North America today and Europe from January 19th. SFV: Arcade Edition provides the core content from the initial Street Fighter® V release and access to the downloadable content updates such as the previously released Cinematic Story Mode and Versus CPU Mode. SFV: Arcade Edition purchasers also get the Season 1 and 2 DLC characters** and a host of new features, all for MSRP $39.99. For European pricing, please check with local retailers.

SFV: Arcade Edition includes a wide variety of new modes and balance updates listed below, which will also be available for owners of the original Street Fighter V via a free update today. Current players of Street Fighter V and new owners of SFV: Arcade Edition will be placed into the same player pool, with PS4 and PC cross-platform play continuing to unite fans into a unified player base.

The new content available alongside SFV: Arcade Edition includes:

  • Arcade Mode – Journey through six different story paths, each representing a main Street Fighter title: Street Fighter, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter III, Street Fighter IV, and Street Fighter V. Each path includes characters faithful to the respective title or appropriately representative of the character. There is online leaderboard support and by reaching the end of each path, players will be treated to one of over 200 all-new custom illustrations.
  • Second V-Triggers for all characters – Characters in the game and upcoming roster additions will each receive a second V-Trigger option that opens up different ways to fight, paving the way for new strategies, combos, and options for veteran and new players.
  • Team Battle Mode – A new mode for two local teams of up to five characters battling it out for victory. There are two options: Elimination and Best of Series with various preference settings such as recovering Vitality between matches or allowing the winning player to keep their EX Gauge, and more.
  • Extra Battle Mode – A new mode that allows players to complete special limited-time challenges to obtain various rewards, including Fight Money, Experience Points and unique costumes.
  • Special Challenges – Not to be confused with the current weekly missions which are still present and yield Fight Money, Special Challenges are scattered throughout the year and will offer unique titles for players upon completion.
  • And more – The game will also include an all new Gallery to view the unlockable Arcade Mode illustrations, Sound option (to listen to stage background music, character themes, and more tunes), redesigned UI, and 3D Costume Previews.

Also available from today, Sakura kicks off the Season 3 DLC character line-up and will later be joined by Sagat, Cody, Blanka, and newcomers Falke and G throughout the year. As before, all of the DLC characters in Street Fighter V are earnable completely free of charge through completing various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency, called Fight Money. For those that can’t wait, in-game content can be obtained instantly using real money.

 

 

This is a great update to Street Fighter V and brings some much needed improvements and features. Will you be playing this?

KISS Publishing Ltd. and Scarecrow Arts are thrilled to reveal that their novel adventure ‘The Story Goes On’ is coming to Xbox One and out of Steam Early Access to full release on PC on February 14th. This fast paced action adventure game offers an innovative new take on the hack ‘n’ slash genre, combining elements of permadeath, random world generation, puzzles and a rich overarching story.

 

Find yourself in the unfinished storybook of a crazed author, on the brink of being discarded forever. The Story Goes On is a beautifully designed tale set in an endless maze known as ‘The Odyssey’ where each player can experience their own unique journey. The Story Goes On allows players to progress at their own pace; almost every event, puzzle and fight can be a frenzied whirlwind or a methodical trial, depending on your own personal playstyle.

 

A stunning adaptive soundtrack that reacts in real-time to the environment gives players a truly personal playthrough, and every item is designed to add to your experience and shift the way you play. From epic combat enhancements to new ways of traversing puzzles, items in The Story Goes On are laid out to work with each other and grant the player epic combinations every time they play.

 

The Story Goes On launched onto Steam Early Access in 2015 and has seen a dazzling array of updates and new features, including new environments, bosses and puzzles, as well completely revamped textures and an updated HUD. Players can now experience the Spooky Mansion, Spider Infested Dungeons and a perilous Mine Shaft as they hack ‘n slash their way through an intimidating lineup of new and powerful bosses.

 

The Story Goes On comes to Xbox with an exclusive local co-op mode. Xbox players can traverse the The Odyssey with an equally powerful partner in a truly high-stakes adventure. Both players begin with own standard health pool with three hearts and when depleted, they die. The living player can then split his health in half and share it with his previously dead partner. Is one healthy player more likely to finish the run, or are two almost dead players your best shot? Reviving in The Story Goes On co-op mode is a perilous gamble.

 

“The Story Goes On has always been a hugely ambitious project, and the Early Access community have been incredibly helpful in refining our vision. What makes this game so special is the ability for each player to experience something truly unique, from the soundtrack, to the environments to the combat and puzzles, everyone’s story will be theirs alone.” Said Malcolm Smith, CEO at Scarecrows Arts.

 

“We’re so thrilled with the evolution of the Story Goes On. It’s unlike anything we’ve published before and is our first title to come to console,” said Darryl Still, Co-Founder and CEO of KISS Publishing Ltd. “We know Xbox and PC players are going to love their individual adventure.”

 

The Story Goes On is currently available via Steam Early Access for $4.99

 

From February 14th the The Story Goes On will be available via Steam and Xbox Games Store for $7.99.

 

 

This is an interesting looking game. It looks to be doing something different than most others. Will you be checking this out?

XSEED sent out the following

XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., have announced that Zwei: The Arges Adventure, the original entry in the Zwei series from acclaimed developer Nihon Falcom and stand-alone predecessor to Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection, will launch for Windows PC via Steam, GOG, and The Humble Store by Humble Bundle on Wednesday, January 24. To celebrate this launch, the title will receive a limited-time 10% launch discount from its regular selling price of $19.99/€19.99/£14.99.
Originally released as Zwei!! in Japan, Zwei: The Arges Adventure stands as the most feature-complete version of the game to date, reintegrating a heaping helping of PC-exclusive features that were lost in the Japanese console versions including an Ys-themed typing tutor mini-game, a challenging block puzzler mini-game, and the “Pet Monitor” virtual pet system, along with a wide variety of unlockables plus some all-new content. Come set out on an adventure later this month with a whole continent’s worth of quirky and cute anime-style characters who frequently find themselves in comedically over-the-top situations, exploring every inch of the painterly 2D land of Arges along the way!
About Zwei: The Arges Adventure
Set on the mysterious time-forgotten floating continent of Arges, Zwei: The Arges Adventure follows the exploits of socially awkward teenage step-siblings Pokkle and Pipiro as they find their monotonous, ho-hum village life rudely interrupted by a mysterious figure who steals six holy idols from the local shrine. Pokkle, a master craftsman of terrible puns and wannabe hero, and Pipiro, a sarcastic mage-in-training with an obsession for fashion and a penchant for speaking her mind no matter how bad an idea that may be, jump at the chance to track down the masked thief and return the idols to their village – Pokkle for the fame, glory, and opportunities to make more puns, and Pipiro purely for the hefty reward on offer. Their adventures will take them to every corner of the continent, leading them to encounter a wide array of over-the-top friends and foes as they uncover a far more sinister plot to revive an ancient “Demon Lord” and get a very up close and personal lesson on nearly 500 years’ worth of Arges history.
Originally developed and released in Japan by Nihon Falcom on PC and PlayStation Portable, and ported to the PlayStation 2 in Japan by Taito, Zwei: The Arges Adventure is the direct predecessor to Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection and will be the first time this title has been made officially available in the West. Boasting a gorgeous hand-drawn 2D world populated by a diverse cast of allies and enemies who are constantly on the move, Zwei: The Arges Adventure also represents one of the formative examples of Nihon Falcom’s now-signature multi-character action RPG combat, enhanced here with smoother and more intuitive gamepad support and a bevy of other optimizations for modern PC systems. This title also features the series’ unique food-based leveling system, giving players more direct control over the game’s difficulty by allowing them to choose how quickly their characters grow in power: will they save food for later so they can exchange it for better food and more level-ups, gorge early on for a more metered experience gain, or fast altogether for a truly hardcore challenge?
Zwei: The Arges Adventure is developed by Nihon Falcom and will be published worldwide for Windows PC by XSEED Games via Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle on January 24 with a 10% launch week discount from its regular selling price of $19.99/€19.99/£14.99. More information about Zwei: The Arges Adventure will be revealed soon via the newly launched Zwei series portal site at http://www.worldofzwei.com. The Windows PC version of Zwei: The Arges Adventure is not rated by the ESRB.

Last Encounter, the intergalactic roguelike twin-stick shooter with extensive weapon customization from Exordium Games, will arrive on Windows via Steam in Q2 2018, with Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases later in Q2. Last Encounter will make its North American debut at PAX South 2018 as part of PAX Rising, booth 10657.
Set in the distant future, all hope is lost when our world is invaded by a savage and technologically superior alien race. To end the onslaught, humanity’s last remaining pilots will take the fight to the extraterrestrials’ vibrant, procedurally-generated galaxies.
With a fleet of unlockable and upgradable ships, each with their own abilities and attributes, mankind will have the spacecraft to battle the invaders, but will still need the firepower to eradicate their enemies. Fortunately each ship will have a component-based weapon system, allowing pilots to create their own armaments by customizing bullet type, firing pattern and more using parts discovered throughout their adventure.
Players will be able to bring up to three friends for cooperative annihilation. Together, they’ll take down challenging enemies and bosses in engaging, fast-paced couch co-op.
“Last Encounter offers a cooperative roguelike experience that encourages strategizing and working together, but players who want to tackle the challenge alone are not at a disadvantage,” said Andrej Kovacevic, Game Director, Exordium Games. “The component-based weapon system allows players to adapt their weapons and ships to maximize their chances for success in every situation, be it single or multiplayer.”
For more information, please visit the official website or follow Last Encounter on Twitter and Facebook.

This is a truly unique looking game. We plan to cover it more in the future, but what do you all think?
