- Moving Out
- Light Fingers
Team17 have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Ageless, a puzzle platformer developed by One More Dream Studios.
No release date yet, but here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots for the game:
Ageless sees players wield the power to manipulate the age of flora and fauna in order to navigate puzzles set throughout vibrant levels, driven by a compelling story. You play as Kiara, a young woman who discovers a mystical bow armed with the ancient power to control ageing. Shoot animals and plants to age them backwards and forwards through their young, prime and old stages to progress, survive challenging levels, and master becoming ‘ageless’. Kiara’s new-found power is not without consequence; the narrative follows the journey she must make to confront her inner demons and find herself along the way.
- Multi-stage ageing for plants and animals: Age flora and fauna through various stages of their life cycle to solve the puzzles standing in your way.
- Platforming: Ageless uses the environment to produce intricate platforming challenges. While ‘ageless’ players can use living creatures to dash through the air, consuming the life force and de-ageing the plant or animal in the process
- Unique worlds: Each area has its own unique plants and animals to utilise, realised in a hand-drawn pixel art.
- Collectables. Becoming ‘ageless’ allows players to see and collect optional hidden items that will only be accessible via intricate platforming challenges hidden throughout the levels.
Ageless (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!

Streets of Rage 4
DotEmu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games have announced that Streets of Rage 4 will feature 2 player online co-op, and 4 player local co-op. A new trailer was also shared, revealing a brand new playable (the 4th and final one): Floyd.
Here’s the trailer and some details about Floyd, along with some screenshots:
The new character, Floyd, dishes out serious damage with his incredibly strong cybernetic arms, a cutting-edge upgrade courtesy of Streets of Rage 3’s playable cyborg, Dr. Zan. Although Floyd’s movement and health recovery are slower than most, he boasts the longest reach among the playable roster and tremendous power, ensuring any combo he puts an enemy through will be devastating.
Streets of Rage 4 (Switch – eShop) comes out this Spring in Europe and North America.
