Nostalgia-Inducing Roguelite Adventure ‘Sparklite’ Reveals New Teaser Trailer!

Manchester, UK, March 19, 2019 — Quietly revealed in the latter half of 2018, Sparklite is back in a big way with a brand new teaser trailer, new screenshots, and a feature showing at GDC 2019 with Microsoft! Developed by Red Blue Games and published by Merge Games, Sparklite is an undeniable nostalgia bomb that will be making its way to Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in Fall 2019.

A delightful mix of roguelite and adventure, Sparklite lovingly leans into the games that inspired it such as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Rogue Legacy while still creating an identity all its own. Take a look at the all-new teaser trailer showcasing new enemies, environments, gadgets and more!

Sparklite is a roguelite brawler-adventure. Battle foes in top-down action using an arsenal of gadgets, guns, and gear. Explore dangerous corners of the world, take down titans of the mining industry, and save the Sparklite!

Everything in the world is tied together by Sparklite… it’s the life force of the planet, and the inhabitants have learned how to channel it for their own gain. It can be harnessed, or it can be consumed for a surge of power with grave consequences.

The “Baron” has devised a plot to mine the world’s Sparklite core. He mines Sparklite and burns/consumes it to fuel his powerful war machines, but the pollution from the consumed Sparklite is corrupting the world. Animals have turned to violent monsters, and the environment is rotting away. But the world has a natural defense in its Sparklite core. Periodically, the core causes a Disruption which rearranges the world, setting back the Baron’s efforts. If the Baron can obtain the core, he will gain the power to create a new world where he has ultimate power.

Our hero, Ada, must travel to each zone of the world to shut down its Digsite, lowering the Baron’s defenses so that she can stop him before it’s too late…

Action Strategy Card-Battler Golem Gates Coming to Switch This April!

March 14th, 2019 – Indie publisher Digerati is pleased to confirm the acclaimed action-strategy card-game hybrid, Golem Gates, is coming to Xbox One (and as a full 4K gaming experience on Xbox One X), PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch in April – exact release date is still TBC.

Developed by Laser Guided Games, Golem Gates is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi blend of action-strategy and card battler, pitting your conjured armies against otherworldly forces.

An ancient threat surges from the Golem Gates, and only the Harbinger stands guard. Wielding the nanite-infused power of The Ash, you must protect a world ravaged by ancient wars. Choose from 100 cards (known as Glyphs) and unleash diverse units, buildings, buffs, and more in tactical combat across single player, co-op, and online multiplayer.

Randomized drawing and quick unit placement means you’ll have to adapt on the fly as you formulate your strategy. Add more forces to a battle to turn the tide, transform a scouting party into an army, place emergency defenses to respond to the enemy, or hide an outpost in a direction the enemy doesn’t expect. The choices are yours, but beware: the enemy will do the same and with the right Glyph your forces can be destroyed as fast as they were created.

Key Features

  • Choose your Glyphs: Customize your deck from dozens of units, buildings, traps, buffs, debuffs, and techs
  • Streamlined tactics: Play cards/Glyphs directly into active combat and adapt at a moment’s notice to defend, flank, and fortify
  • Hours of unique content: Single player campaign, challenge scenarios, solo/co-op survival, local and online multiplayer, and more
  • Full 4K gaming on Xbox One X: Enjoy the gorgeous spectacle of science-fantasy warfare and screen-filling magical mayhem

“We know strategy games have historically been thought of as more of a PC thing, but we think console players will be delighted by the changes Golem Gates has made to the formula that make it feel right at home played on a couch with a gamepad, or on the go on Switch.” said Digerati Director Nick Alfieri.

“Having worked on it for the past four years, Golem Gates has been a labor of love,” said the game’s creator, Matt Oelfke. “Golem Gates has been a blast on Steam and we’re thrilled console players will also have the chance to experience this unique strategy game.”

Umihara Kawase Fresh! Will Be Served Up To Nintendo Switch Players On July 9th!

SANTA ANA, California, March 13, 2019 — Nicalis, Inc. today announced a new partnership with Japanese developer Studio Saizensen to bring Umihara Kawase Fresh! to Nintendo SwitchTM in North America and Europe on July 9, 2019. A fresh new chapter in the storied series, Umihara Kawase Fresh! features open-world platforming gameplay starring a young girl who uses her fishing lure as a grappling hook, allowing her to progress through the quaint frontier town of Kingness.

Kawase is a traveling chef who has embarked on many magical adventures in the past. In Umihara Kawase Fresh!, she will put her navigating, grappling and cooking skills to the ultimate test as she completes various quests and discovers the secrets of Kingness, a town that is new to her yet somehow familiar.

Players will need to jump, climb, swing and slingshot their way across platforms all over town in order to clear goals and reach a specific destination to advance to the next quest. Each completed quest can be replayed in Time Attack mode, where a timer is added to let players compete for the best times in online leaderboard rankings.

Along the way, Kawase can use the lure to collect enemies and various food ingredients to store in her magical backpack. Combining ingredients with special recipes creates dishes that can be consumed to earn temporary special abilities, like jumping higher or being able to survive underwater for a longer time. The game also includes two additional playable characters: Cotton from the scrolling shooter Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams and another storied character yet to be announced.

Nicalis and Studio Saizensen continue their close working relationship, as the two companies previously collaborated on the crossover fighting game Blade Strangers and the hack-and-slash RPG Code of Princess EX.

Umihara Kawase Fresh! for Nintendo Switch will be available digitally and physically (NA only) on July 9 for $39.99 MSRP.
