DariusBurst: Another Chronicle EX+ Set For June 11th 2021 Release!

Stuttgart, 12th May 2021 – TAITO and ININ Games are proud to announce DariusBurst Another Chronicle EX+ will be released both physically and digitally on Nintendo Switch and Sony PlayStation 4 for Europe and North America this summer. DariusBurst Another Chronicle EX+ is a new revision of DariusBurst AC and comes with gorgeous 3D graphics.

It’s now 10 years since the original version and the original team, which is highly motivated, is still proudly working together on this version. The DariusBurst series started in 2009 on PSP, and was then greatly expanded upon with additional features and improved graphics for the 2010 arcade release. The game is developed by Pyramid Inc. and will not only include features of the arcade version of “Another Chronicle EX”, but there will also be new features like a replay mode and new missions.

Prepare to burst with power

The Burst Beam brings a new, strategic dynamic into the game and changes the battles dramatically. The screen-filling laser shoots powerful blasts or can be locked into a certain position and be used as a shield against enemy fire. Asteroids and enemy fire are replenishing the shield, which gives the player the opportunity to hide behind it for quite some time. A big advantage in boss battles!

Deep sea Sci-Fi setting

One of the series’ most iconic features is the unique oceanic-themed design of enemy bosses. Inspired by a mix of Sci-Fi and deep-sea creatures, embodied as large mechanical battleships, they can be admired in all the graphical glory of DariusBurst: Another Chronicle EX+!

The screen is ultra-broad, modelled after the dual-display of the arcade version creating a fantastic sight into the marine-themed setting. The magnificent sea-life panorama is enhanced by an equally great soundtrack.TAITO’s in-house sound team Zuntata amplifies the adrenaline-filled atmosphere with powerful beats and emotional tunes.

Features:

  • Local co-op for up to 4 players
  • 4 game modes and all new and exclusive scenarios
  • High replayability with branching stages
  • Modern HD graphics and a great atmospheric soundtrack
  • Face off against more than 40 gigantic battleships
  • Make strategic use of the versatile Burst Beam to destroy the evil Belsar Forces
  • For the first time, take flight in the Silver-Hawk Murakumo in all modes

Inca mythology action-RPG Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards comes to Nintendo Switch on May 26th!

New York City, USA – May 11th, 2021 – Digitart Interactive and N-Fusion Interactive are proud to announce that its Inca mythology-based action-RPG Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards is coming to PC (Steam) and Nintendo Switch on May 26th for $19.99. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow. Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards stars comic book creator and actress Paula Garces (Harold & Kumar series, On My Block, Clockstoppers, The Shield) as Incan demigod Aluna as she embarks upon a quest to understand the mysterious fate bestowed upon her.

Developed by Digiart Interactive and  N-Fusion Interactive, Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards is a rip-roaring romp through Inca lore featuring mythological gods, beasts, and tales that formed the backbone of 16th century Colombian culture. Venture from the Sanctuary seaside cliffs through the massive jungles of the New World, all the way to Nagaric’s Temple in the Volcanic Canyons in this pulpy period adventure.

Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards follows the exploits of Aluna, the warrior daughter of a Spanish conquistador and South American nature goddess Pachamama. Raised in early 16th century Spain, Aluna escaped to the New World only to realize it was her true homeland. Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards sets our heroine on a quest through Inca mythology as she strives to restore the amulet her goddess mother entrusted to her… and fulfill her true destiny.

Created by Paula Garces and Antonio Hernandez in response to the underrepresentation of both Latin and female superheroes in the entertainment industry, Aluna went on to become a cult hit and is currently starring in the ongoing comic book saga, The World of Aluna, written by Assassin’s Creed and Batman: Arkham Origins scribes Ryan Galletta, Dooma Wendschuch, and Corey May. Aluna further made a name for herself in video games after becoming a playable character in S2 Games’ popular MOBA Heroes of Newerth, where she was played by Paula Garces herself.

“Creating Aluna has been a joy, as Latin characters and women have historically been woefully underrepresented in pop culture,” said Aluna creator and actress Paula Garces. “It was a thrill bringing her to life on the page and in Heroes of Newerth, but giving her a starring role in an action-RPG is an all new opportunity to let everyone – not just me – embody Aluna and understand the power that comes with her unique heritage. She’s the badass Latina heroine I never had growing up!”

Aluna has been a passion project for Paula and I for years, as we’ve long struggled with the poor representation of Latin American people in our culture,” said Digiart Interactive founder Antonio Hernandez. “Video games are among the most widely shared forms of entertainment available today, and being able to share our heritage with a wider audience is exciting beyond words. We can’t wait for people to get their hands on Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards on May 26th.”

Nongunz: Doppelganger Edition Out This Week on Nintendo Switch!

5 MAY, 2021 – Nongunz: Doppelganger Edition, the nihilistic action-platformer from indie developer Brainwash Gang and published by Digerati, launches this week on PC and console. It will be available from today, 5 May, on PS4, 6 May for Nintendo Switch, and 7 May on Xbox One, and PC (Steam, GOG, Humble, Green Man Gaming, Fanatical, and Nuveem). There will be a 20% launch discount for consoles, and 10% on PC.

Nongunz first launched on PC in 2017, with PS4 and Switch versions planned to follow. However, when Sindiecate – the game’s publisher at the time – vanished without a trace, the future for Nongunz and the planned console versions looked uncertain.

Following a chance encounter with Brainwash Gang at 35,000 feet (they were on the same flight), Digerati jumped at the opportunity to sign Nongunz and is thrilled to be able to give a remastered version of the game the full release it deserves across PC and, for the very first time, console.

Digerati is happy to confirm that anyone who owns the original Nongunz on Steam will receive a copy of Doppelganger Edition into their Steam Library absolutely free.

A roguelite wrapped inside a riddle, each run in Nongunz sees you parting from a black and white graveyard into an ever-changing gothic dungeon full of nightmares fleshed out of human viscera. Surviving not only requires skill but style, since Nongunz rewards you for long-lasting combos and challenges… moreover, score plays a key role in the progress of the idle game: the formation of your very own band of lost souls and death cultists.

Apsulov: End of Gods To Launch Summer 2021 on Nintendo Switch!

4 MAY, 2021 – Indie publisher Digerati is delighted to announce it’s bringing Apsulov: End of Gods to consoles, with the game launching digitally for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5. Apsulov: End of Gods is currently scheduled to launch summer 2021.

Created by Sweden-based developer Angry Demon Studio, Apsulov: End of Gods brings together technology and Norse myth in an atmospheric first-person horror adventure. First launched on PC in 2019, Apsulov was the recipient of an Epic Mega Grant, and won DreamHack’s ‘Best Horror’ award.

“We worked incredibly hard to create a rich, atmospheric world for Apsulov, and the response we’ve had from PC players is a great source of pride for us,” says Angry Demon Studio CEO, John Kalderon. “It’s always been our aim to bring the game to consoles, so we’re thrilled that it’s finally happening and console owners will soon get a chance to discover the secrets of Yggdrasil for themselves.” 

In addition to the digital versions, Digerati has partnered with publisher Perp Games to bring Apsulov: End of Gods physical editions to console formats, including PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The physical versions will include the game, and downloadable soundtrack and artbook.

“Anyone who has played Apsulov on PC will know its atmospheric blend of horror and sci-fi wrapped in the lore of Norse mythology makes for a potent combination,” says Digerati director, Nick Alfieri. “It’s a game that absolutely deserves to exist in the physical realm as well as the digital, so we’re happy to be working with Perp Games to make that happen.” 

“This is no ‘typical’ haunted house game. Angry Demon Studio has created a real horror game steeped in Norse mythology,” said Rob Edwards, Managing Director at Perp Games. “It is a pleasure to work with Angry Demon Studio and Digerati to publish the physical versions of this incredibly atmospheric horror game.”

The Apsulov: End of Gods physical editions will be available to purchase from Perp Games starting summer 2021.
