Rogue Aces

Earlier this week, Curve Digital and Infinite State Games announced they were bringing Rogue Aces to the Nintendo Switch.

Here’s all you need to know about it:

Regalia

Earlier this week, Crunching Koalas and Pixelated Milk announced that Regalia would be released on April 12th in Europe and North America. Here’s all you need to know about it:

Regalia draws inspiration from jRPG classics, but also delivers a modern mix of good old adventuring and dynamic storytelling. It’s a tactical RPG, but it’s actually a game about the restoration of your kingdom, bonding with vibrant characters met during your journey, embarking on the most peculiar quests possible, and bringing back your best jRPG moments in an up-to-date, accessible style.

It can also be a game about unforgettable, rewarding combats and well-thought tactics, but that’s for the player to decide – there’s always a possibility to tone down the difficulty level or even skip a battle if someone can’t wait to see what other plot-twists lay before him.

Omitting the battles won’t make all the problems go away, though – there’s always something to be done in Ascalia, like dealing with teammates’ quirks. Take Theo for example, a vampire with a blood aversion, whose biggest dream is to become a hairdresser or Esther’s ambition to make a DIY atomic bomb with just a few gears and spare parts. Oh, and there’s always a fishing mini-game!

Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs has already made its mark amongst RPG fans during its PC launch, but we’re not stopping there. The Royal Edition is an enhanced version of the game that also contains a DLC: The Unending Grimoire, including an endless mode and brand-new characters.

 

  • Traverse through lands of robust turn-based battles, diverse quests and distinct bosses.
  • Bond with dozens of colorful characters who will help you along your journey.
  • Tone down the difficulty level or skip battles if you’re not in a mood for a fight.
  • Experience a fair amount of epicness and tons of humor; Samurai dwarves?!
  • Bring back your best jRPG memories with hours of engaging gameplay.
  • Face the newly-added endless mode and prove your tactical skills.

The First Tree

Yesterday, David Wehle announced that he was bringing The First Tree, a narrative game, to the Nintendo Switch (with the help of DO Games). It will be released in late 2018, and more details will be shared at a later date.

The game follows the stories of two interconnected beings: one of a fox looking for her missing cubs, and another of a son reconnecting with his estranged father in Alaska. Players take control of the fox on a poignant and beautiful journey that crescendos at the source of life, and perhaps result in an understanding of death. Along the way, players can uncover artifacts and stories from the son’s life as he becomes intertwined in the fox’s journey towards The First Tree.

Key Features:

 

  • Recently nominated for Best Game and Best Music and the Emotional Games Awards.
  • A poignant, intimate story by a one-man team with an ending you won’t soon forget.
