Here’s a trailer and some details:
Beast Quest will take players on an epic journey to save the mythical land of Avantia from ruin. Dark magic has corrupted the towering, noble creatures of the realm, which players must overcome in action-packed boss battles – dodging, blocking and countering attacks while chaining combos and unleashing allies to turn the tide of combat. Meanwhile, spectacular environments with rich, open-level design offer daring heroes opportunities to discover challenging quests, powerful upgrades, and ancient secrets hiding just beyond the horizon.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout was released last week in Japan, and it’s off to a great start. According to Koei-Tecmo, the game has already “sold” over 150 000 units (total of shipped units + digital sales), making it the fastest-selling game for the series.
In fact, the game is selling so well that many stores are running out of copies. The situation is so bad that Koei-Tecmo / Gust have had to apologise on Twitter, and invite players who really want the game but can’t find it in stores to get the digital version.
But it’s not just in Japan: according to Koei-Tecmo, the game is also enjoying strong pre-orders outside Japan.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout (Switch) comes out on October 29th in North America, and November 1st in Europe.
