Here is some rather interesting news,

 

Nintendo has filed for a trademark for “Pocket Camp” in English. The trademark is being registered for use with ‘home video game machines’. Could this be a new IP Nintendo is producing? Could it be a spinoff of another series?

We will have to wait and see for now, but it is always intriguing when Nintendo does something like this.

No GravatarSplatoon 2, released later this month is the sequel to 2015’s mega hit on the Wii U. The first released received critical acclaim and praise from gamers all over the world. 2 years later we are remunerated for our patience by the release of Splatoon 2. 

The first game was an online multiplayer experience only with couch co-op available.  Now, Nintendo has listened to the masses on every iteration of social media and forums. The new single player modes in Splatoon 2 are a sight to behold. These levels are extremely well constructed and are a blast to play. 

The story of the single player campaign is Callie from the Squid Sisters in missing and you follow Marie to help defeat the Octarians. In the mode, you can try out different weapons and truly get a sense of the game mechanics. There is a ton of platforming this game mode as well. It is a mashup of traditional Splatoon and a Mario game per se’. This is a very fun mode and a refreshing change of pace for the franchise. 

The gameplay in the single player mode is some of the best yet. The variety of the levels and the way you progress through the levels are such a joy and also a challenge. The developers went all out with capabilities of Nintendo Switch hardware. This is fast paced, well designed with new gameplay elements at every corner. It is an absolute blast to play.

Get ready for Splatoon 2, check out our full review of the game coming soon.

KEMCO proudly announces the release of Revenant Saga for Wii U set to hit the Nintendo eShop today. Standard prices are USD 9.99 / EUR 9.99 / GBP 8.99 / AUD 13.00.

Story

After his childhood friend’s parents are stricken with the plague, Albert meets one Dr. Moreau, and agrees to participate in a trial experiment for the promise of a potential cure. However, when the experiment itself proves to be a facade for turning humans into revenants and the Rystorian Order suddenly intervenes, Albert is left with the soul of a demon inside him vying for control of his body. Realizing the same mad scientist who tricked him is also responsible for his childhood friend’s death and many others close to him, he sets out on a journey alone to exact revenge on the man who ruined his life…
However, after crossing paths with revenant hunter slash potential valkyrie, Esther, and being pushed into joining her cause, Albert begins to seriously wonder if or how long he will be able to keep his secret from his new companion. To make matters worse, she has been endowed with the very powers capable of vanquishing those like him!

Stunning 3D Battles

Smooth controls and a fluid camera make 3D battles in Revenant Saga stress free and perfect for PlayStation! In addition, powerful skills with brilliant effects enhance the RPG experience like never before! And with auto and semi-auto functions, battles are as simple as the touch of a button!

Features

What you should know: Revenant Saga will incorporate over 30+ hours of gameplay woven around Albert’s elaborate journey. This includes a variety of unique subquests, in-battle transformation systems, as well as a weapon forging system allowing players to make entirely unique weapons!

Kemco has released some great RPGs on the Wii U, 3DS, mobile devices and more platforms. They are great throwback RPGs and offer a great amount of content. This may be worth looking into for fans of the genre who own a Wii U.

Two classic Turbo Grafx 16 games are coming to the Wii U eShop tomorrow.

 

Neutopia II

An RPG that everyone can enjoy.

Experience improved graphics and controls in this exciting sequel to the action RPG Neutopia. Take on the role of the main hero’s son and watch as the story begins with the apparent revival of Dirth, the evil demon. Once again you’ll need to rely on your magic compass and the information you’ve gathered to find entrances to labyrinths and defeat the bosses in them. Make your way through the field, which can be tricky at times, to search for and find hidden information and items, or move blocks and destroy walls to uncover secret rooms.

 

As well as Alien Crush

Enjoy intense pinball action!

Alien Crush is a pinball game that features realistic pinball action and superb “biomechanical” graphics. Complete with a function to nudge the machine, this game feels like you’re playing on a real pinball machine! Extra balls and bonus points are your keys to getting high scores.

 

These are amazing games, and hopefully will come to the Switch when that system gets its virtual console. Alien Crush is an amazing pinball game that all should try.
