Narcos: Rise of the Cartels

Curve Digital have shared not one, but two new trailers for Narcos: Rise of the Cartels:

And here’s some more details about the game:

Narcos: Rise of the Cartels allows players to relive the events of the first season, taking the side of either the Medellin Cartel or the DEA in two distinct campaigns. In 1980’s Colombia El Patrón’s influence is rapidly expanding, with drugs, corruption and crime spreading out from the Colombian town of Medellin. America is now starting to take notice. Do you help the Narcos’ drug empire rise to the top under the watchful eye of El Patrón, or topple the growing criminal enterprise alongside Steve Murphy as the DEA?

Based on the hit Netflix series from production company, Gaumont,, Narcos: Rise of the Cartels features iconic locations and characters from the show, offering players the chance to step into the criminal underworld alongside characters such as El Mexicano, Murphy, Peña, Primo and more – each with their own unique gameplay abilities and perks to help turn the tide of battle. Explore familiar scenery from the show and take a pivotal role in world-altering events that will define and shift the war on drugs.

Fans of turn-based strategy will experience an exhilarating new take on the genre, with units on both sides moving simultaneously and with innovative new mechanics that allow players to take direct third-person command over their units in critical moments. Form your team from a variety of class-specific roles, upgrade your skills and join leading characters on the path to dominance, but beware – your actions will have lasting consequences.

Narcos: Rise of the Cartels (Switch) comes out this Fall in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

Koei-Tecmo have shared some more details about Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, this time focusing on the titular Secret Hideout:

As Ryza, the budding alchemist, and her mischievous group of friends set out in search for adventure, they will be faced with a wealth of challenges to overcome. A series of circumstances leads the group into the depths of the mysterious Sunken Mine, a deep and dark dried-up environment that is home to something potentially evil – a gate leading to another world.

To prepare for their harrowing journey; to save their homeland from whatever is lurking in this far off land, the adventurers create a secret hideout as their new base of operations. As a budding young alchemist, Ryza will have to ensure she diligently practices synthesizing between her travels – the higher her alchemy level the more useful her items will be for future adventures. In addition, players will also able to use the exciting new Gathering Synthesis system from the hideout to create new lands to explore; they can use Forging to create new weaponry perfect for tougher foes; and Item Duplication, to easily craft a variety of consumable items for their journey.

Since Ryza’s Secret Hideout would not be complete without personalization, players will be able to customize their hideout to reflect their own personality through using various items found while exploring the multiple worlds. Ryza and her team will be able to increase their stats depending on how the base is remodeled, and the gathered items can be utilized strategically to grant useful stat boosts on the field during battle. These Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout features will unlock as players experience more of the game’s gripping narrative, quests, and magical lands.
