Dustoff Z

Zordix have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Dustoff Z, the third entry in the series. It’s developed by Invictus Games, and it will be released later this year in Europe and North America.

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

The world as we know it is in ruins. Relentless hordes of the undead have reduced civilization to tiny pockets of survivors that are disappearing by the day. The world has one hope left – a brave and daring police helicopter pilot with a knack for machinery. Pilot helicopters salvaged together from small vehicles to retrofitted school buses and equip them with an arsenal of different zombie-destroying weapons including machine guns, rocket launchers, buzz saws, tesla coils and more. 

But, saving the day can’t be done alone. Hire shooters to put those weapons to use, each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses, as you decimate the zombie population, rescue survivors, protect aid-providing convoys, and destroy high-value enemy targets. Use your chopper’s winch hook to haul in and collect supplies, place base defenses, haul the corpses of zombies back to your base for analysis and even use objects in the environment as weapons like battering rams. Play solo or enlist a friend to step behind the guns as you deftly maneuver your helicopter through the decimated cityscapes overrun by the zombie hordes. 

Dustoff Z (Switch – eShop) comes out later this year in Europe and North America.

King of Seas

3DClouds have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: King of Seas, a pirates-themed Action RPG. It will be released this Fall in Europe and North America.

Here’s the debut trailer, some details, and some screenshots:

King of Seas immerses you in a time of pirates, ferocious sea battles, hidden treasure and lost islands, all set in a stunning procedurally generated game world. Embark on an epic journey to avenge the death of your father, navigating through unknown waters and waging battle with other ships as you stake your claim to become the king of all pirates.  

King of Seas’ dynamic game world will react to your every action forcing you to evaluate your strategy at every turn and adapt to the new challenges facing you. Naval routes might change meaning you will need to look for new ways to conquer settlements or adverse weather conditions might require new, more dangerous routes to be navigated when heading to islands to trade goods or upgrade your ships. Engage with an intriguing cast of characters who may steer you towards hidden treasures or lead you into deadly traps as other pirates look to plunder your gold. One thing is for certain, there are adventures to be had and battles to fight as you shape your empire on the high seas. 

King of Seas (Switch – eShop) comes out this Fall in Europe and North America.

Skater XL

Easy Day Studios have shared the list of artists that will contribute to the soundtrack of Skater XL:

  • Modest Mouse: Exploring a jagged, lo-fi post-rock after forming in the mid-’90s, Modest Mouse became unlikely chart-toppers with a volatile mix of punk-inspired rawness and simmering atmosphere in the following decade. The band first broke through to the mainstream audience with the platinum-selling ‘Good News for People Who Love Bad News,’ their fourth full-length, in 2005.
  • Band of Horses: Emerging in 2004 with a blend of woodsy midtempo rock and reverb-laden vocals, Band of Horses gained an audience in their native Northwest before ‘Everything All the Time’ made them indie rock darlings.
  • Getter: Entrepreneur, Creative Director, Label Owner – just a few titles American music producer Tanner Petulla, professionally known as Getter, can claim. With the launch of his own clothing line Trippy Burger, the creation of his own creative hub “Shred Collective” – Getter has become a household name.
  • Interpol: Since their emergence in the early 2000s, Interpol have occupied a unique space within indie rock. They helped kick-start the post-punk revival that has endured.
  • Future Islands: Led by crooning frontman Samuel T. Herring, the members of Future Islands started out making electropop music together in 2003 while attending East Carolina University’s art program. Along with Herring, the initial members of the group were Adam Beeby, William Cashion, Gerrit Welmers, and Kymia Nawabi, and they played shows around campus as Art Lord & the Self-Portraits.
  • Animal Collective: Animal Collective is a group of four best friends who grew up playing and recording music together in Baltimore County Maryland. AC continues to make music after 15 years, 10 studio records and three live records, that combines a love of sonic free form electronic horror gospel hip hop soul pop madness.
  • Silversun Pickups: With their organic but richly atmospheric sound, Los Angeles alternative rock band Silversun Pickups helped put the über-hip Silver Lake scene on the map with their critical and commercial success in the 21st century. Debuting in 2005, they were indie radio favorites until their mainstream breakthrough, Swoon, arrived in 2009.
  • STARHEADBODY:  An open-ended musical collective, established and led by professional skateboarder, and Skater XL playable character, Evan Smith. Living by the motto “Everybody In,” each STARHEADBODY release features new collaborative artists, allowing Evan to capture audio snapshots of the many adventures that he finds himself in through experimental compositions and recording environments.
  • Built To Spill: Built to Spill were one of the most popular indie rock acts of the ’90s, finding the middle ground between postmodern, Pavement -style pop and the loose, spacious jamming of Neil Young. From the outset, the band was a vehicle for singer/songwriter/guitarist Doug Martsch, who — heavily inspired by Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis — helped keep alive the concept of the indie guitar hero.
  • Cende: Indie rock group Cende delivered a stirring brand of power pop. The trio began playing together in 2013 after discovering a shared appreciation for garage punk outfit the Marked Men.
  • Kratos Himself: Honoring the rituals of his home, and reflecting the tones, moods, and life cycles dependent on circadian procession, Kratos Himself binds his melancholic meditations to the patient, ancestral soundscapes of the forest and countryside.
  • The Shivas: The Shivas are a rock and roll band from Portland, Oregon formed in 2006. For The Shivas, the show has always been the thing. That thing being a bombastic, explosive and thoroughly communal live rock and roll experience where barriers between the performers and their audience seem to dissolve into the sweat and sound.
  • Westkust: The Swedish shoegaze/noise pop band Westkust build their songs out of wall-of-sound guitars, mix in strong, swirling melodies, and top it off with yearning vocals straight from the indie pop playbook.

The full tracklist will be revealed on July 28th.
