Port Royale 4

Kalypso Media have announced yet another game for the Nintendo Switch: Port Royale 4, the latest game in the Port Royal series. It’s developed by Gaming Minds Studios, and it will be released in Q4 2020.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots for the game:

In Port Royale 4, take control of a colony as a young and ambitious governor, eager to grow their small settlement into a bustling trader city. Players will develop production chains connecting multiple islands to create complex trade routes across the Caribbean and fulfil tasks for their nation’s viceroy to earn more fame and unlock town buildings, ships and more.

Along the way, you’ll also conquer the cities of rival nations and hunt down their fleets while keeping a keen eye out for pirates and other privateers. For the first time in the series, naval battles will be turn-based, with up to 10 ships battling at a time and special tactical captain manoeuvres that can turn the tide of battle, even in the most hopeless of situations.

Port Royale 4 (Switch) comes out in Q4 2020 in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!

Little Nightmares II

Bandai-Namco have announced that a second Little Nightmares game, logically called Little Nightmares II. It will be released sometimes in 2020.

Here’s the debut trailer and some details:

Produced in partnership with Tarsier Studios, Little Nightmares II is the story of Mono, a young boy trapped in a world distorted by the humming transmission of a distant Signal Tower. With Six, the girl in a yellow raincoat, together they set out to discover the grim secrets of the world whilst fleeing from the monstrous residents out to capture them.

In Little Nightmares II, players will control Mono, with Six – the protagonist from the first game – acting as their computer-controlled companion. The relationship between the two children will play a huge role within the game’s story and unveil new gameplay mechanics as the children must work together to traverse through the world.

At certain points in the game, Mono will also be able to wield a range of items picked up in the environment – a new mechanic added to Little Nightmares II that brings an extra layer of complexity to the game’s puzzles and encounters with enemies. There will be times when stealth remains the best option, sneaking past towering enemies, and times when players must think quickly to save themselves, as well as their companion Six.

In addition to new gameplay mechanics, players will also venture outside of The Maw (the setting of the first Little Nightmares game), exploring new environments including a dark wilderness and facing new enemies, such as the sadistic Teacher.
