Join an Epic Family of Heroes as Children of Morta Reveals its Release Date!

Warsaw, Poland – August 7th, 2019 — Publisher 11 bit studios and developer Dead Mage are thrilled to announce the highly-anticipated roguelike RPG, Children of Morta will be arriving on PC this September 3, 2019. The Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 versions of the game will launch on October 15, 2019.

Corruption has spread, morphing the once peaceful Mount Morta into a violent and monster-infested nightmare. Will you be able to sacrifice everything to save the ones you care for? Children of Morta is a story-driven action RPG about a valiant family standing together while the world around them is devoured in darkness. Lead the Bergsons, with all their flaws and virtues, and experience what it means to be in a family of heroes.

Children of Morta copes with themes closer to our daily lives than one would expect.

Children of Morta will be available digitally on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC at 21.99 USD/EUR. The boxed editions from Merge Games will be released on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC (in Europe and Australia) alongside the digital releases.

Release Date for The Ninja Saviors – Return of the Warriors Confirmed for Nintendo Switch!

Stuttgart, Germany; August 22, 2019 – ININ Games, publishing label of United Games GmbH, today released a new extra-large trailer for THE NINJA SAVIORS – Return of the Warriors and confirmed the launch dates for Europe and North America.

The highly anticipated sequel to the arcade hit will be released in Europe on August 30, and in North America on October 15 on Nintendo Switch and Sony PlayStation 4. The game was originally planned to be released simultaneously in both markets. The reason for the short-term postponement in North America are unforeseen logistical challenges, which could not be solved in time despite intensive efforts. ININ would like to apologize formally to the many fans who are already eagerly waiting to play this masterpiece. As small compensation for a longer wait time, the physical release will contain some extra items that will be revealed later.

There is more good news: The game will be released as a completely uncut experience in Europe and the US, including the option to change the color of the hit effects to red. It will also include enemies which were not included in the Western Super Nintendo version at that time. An extensive insight into the features and characters is provided by the six-minute XXL trailer which was released today.

The fully revised side-scrolling arcade brawler THE NINJA SAVIORS – Return of the Warriors features a strong cast of five playable characters and a plethora of individual moves, with two completely new faces joining the team: The small woman-shaped android Yaksha, with telescopic arms performing unpredictable moves and Raiden, a colossal android weighing a whopping 32000 kilograms / 70548 lbs.

Armed with diamond sharp steel, the Ninjas turn their bodies into raging cyclones – leaping, kicking, and slashing through wave after wave of enemies. Over a total of eight levels, you’ll take on the tyrant Banglar and his henchmen either alone or with a friend. So settle in for a night on the couch with your friends, and reminisce about the golden era of 90s co-op game evenings you know and love.

The original developers, TENGO PROJECT, have improved the audio-visuals in every respect, making an already outstanding game even better! Along with 2-player co-op play, TAITO’s latest arcade action masterpiece also offers fans new 16-bit pixel art graphics and animations, the revamped sound of TAITO’s legendary house band ZUNTATA, as well as an online ranking system so that you can compare your skills to fighters from all over the world.

PRE-ORDER ITEMS:

Pre-orders of the physical edition of THE NINJA SAVIORS – Return of the Warriors will receive a limited NINJA SAVIORS keychain with a throwing knife look.

In addition to the poster and sticker set, a manual will also be included, just like back in the 1990s. More information on pre-orders can be found here.

Get Lit with Gameplay Trailer of The Alliance Alive HD Remastered!

To unite the realms and return the sky from eternal darkness, you’ve got to harness everything you’ve got! In The Alliance Alive HD Remastered, skills and bonds are challenged when overthrowing the Daemons.

Our latest Gameplay Trailer highlights components for success in battle and the greater journey that lies ahead. Below are three critical features in battle:

Awakening – Learn skills at random, though the chances to do so are increased by engaging stronger enemies or using stronger weapons. Additionally, unlocking specific Talents allows one to “awaken” with greater odds.

Ignition – When a character enters this state (from dealing or taking damage), they can utilize their weapon’s Final Strike. Entering further states of Ignition opens up more advantages in battle.

Final Strike – A gambit that gives access to a powerful attack in exchange for breaking the currently equipped weapon.

EarthNight Takes the Dragon Apocalypse to Nintendo Switch in 2019!

PHILADELPHIA – Aug. 19, 2019 – EarthNight, the hand-drawn action platformer set during the dragon apocalypse, leaps and dashes its way to Nintendo Switch in 2019, Nintendo revealed today as part of its Indie World presentation. Developer Cleaversoft also plans to release the title later this year for PlayStation 4 and Windows PC & Mac on Steam.

Dragons have taken over the Earth. Mankind now lives in exile, clinging to life in space colonies orbiting around the planet. Two heroes, the demon-possessed teen Sydney and sword-wielding Stanley, represent humanity’s last hope. Fighting to return to the place they once called home, the duo skydives through the monster-infested atmosphere to eliminate as many of the beasts as possible on the way back down to the planet below.

Racing along the serpentine dragons’ backs, Sydney and Stanley can harness their momentum to elude or dispatch the colorful swarms of enemies looking to trip them up along the way. Each character comes with distinct playstyles, offering sharp double jumps or lone gliding leaps and attacks, that can be manipulated precisely with minimalist but nuanced controls.

Those who master traversing these obstacle courses can vault higher into the sky, chaining jumps into the air where power-ups and other treasures await. At the end of a run, players will want to bring these collectibles back to the Appraiser, who exchanges them for persistent upgrades that can be used in the battles to come.

Even with new weapons and equipment, Sydney and Stanley need to remain on their toes. Each dragon is different from the last, fusing hand-crafted design with procedural elements to shape intricate encounters with near-infinite possibilities. Every moment is intense and layered with intricacy, inviting dragon slayers to come back for one more run in search of larger combo strings, higher scores, new items, secrets, warp zones, and more until they finally liberate Earth.

“EarthNight was inspired by many of the platformers we grew up with in the ‘80s and early ‘90s, so it’s a dream come true to be putting our game on a Nintendo system,” said Rich Siegel, founder, Cleaversoft. “We can’t to wait show off everything we’ve learned from the classics and how we’re pushing the genre forward when EarthNight launches later this year.”

EarthNight is driven by an original soundtrack composed by chiptune musician Paul “Chipocrite” Weinstein and pairs its tunes with surreal, painterly visuals from artist Paul “Mattahan” Davey, who meticulously illustrated the game’s more than 10,000 frames of animation by hand.

New Sparklite Gameplay Trailer Premiered!

Manchester, UK, Aug. 19, 2019 — During Gamescom 2019, Nintendo shined a bright light on the best indie titles coming to the Switch with the Indie World livestream. Sparklite was one such bright star and the new trailer gave gamers a glimpse of what to expect in this charming adventure. For those hoping to learn more, we’ve got a deep dive into the weapons and gadgets that you’ll use when exploring and a dev diary focused on Ada, the hero of Sparklite.

Across Sparklite’s five diverse procedurally generated biomes, an abundance of mystery and challenges lie in wait and it’s dangerous to explore unprepared. With Sparkmaster Rizzle’s trusty Workshop of Wonders open in town, our hero Ada is always only a stone’s throw away from upgrading her arsenal for the enemies and puzzles that lie ahead.

From either harnessing the power of the Boom Balloon which allows Ada to quickly dispatch enemies with remote control precision, to the quick firing bursts of energy from the Spark Slinger, there’s always a weapon on hand to deal with any given situation. With Sparklite upping the ante with several challenging boss battles such as the Lumbering Titan, Timbert and his treacherous gremlins, Ada’s Rocket Boots provide her with short, concentrated bursts of speed to both avoid foes and jump over large gaps to catch that hard to reach chest of loot! Or take it up another level with the powerful Spark Blitzer which harnesses Sparklite to discharge an intense spike of energy with devastating precision!

As well as Ada’s array of high-powered weaponry, she also has a wealth of gadgets at her disposal. From her companion, Wingnut’s enhancing Flare Bang, to Ada’s own handy Multi-Tool WrenchSparklite has enough tools in its box for any budding explorer come release day! These are but a handful of the weapons and tools Ada will utilize when taking on the perilous foes Professor Corwin touched on in detail in last month’s Bestiary of Brutal Baddies.

Whilst you catch up on how you’ll be filling up your armoury in Sparklite, drop by and add the game to your Steam Wishlist where Merge Games is running a Steam wishlist promotion for exclusive content ahead of launch, including a chance to play the game early! We’re energized by our community’s excitement for the game and want to reward the fans as we get closer to the October release.

Sparklite is an action-adventure set in a whimsical and ever-changing land. Battle foes in top-down action using an arsenal of gadgets, guns, and gear. Explore dangerous corners of the procedurally generated world, take down titans of the mining industry, and harness the power of Sparklite!

Lodz, Poland, 19 August 2019 — As part of a super surprise announcement, SUPERHOT Team is incredibly proud to reveal that the multi-award-winning smash hit SUPERHOT is available right now on the Nintendo Switch!

The team loves Nintendo and wanted to make sure SUPERHOT on Switch was the best it could possibly be. They’ve gone whole hog in making sure the game runs smooth as butter on Nintendo’s console and went the extra mile with a few shiny new features.

Taking full advantage of the Switch has to offer, the biggest change awaiting both new and returning players is the addition of optional gyroscope aiming. These intuitive new mechanics allow an extreme degree of aiming precision not previously possible. Players can also hack, slash, shot and swipe with the Joy-Cons to shatter the Red Dudes with just a flick of their wrist. SUPERHOT on the go has never been so accessible or so fun.

Feature List:

  • All new adjustable gyroscope aiming
  • Optional motion controls
  • Fully optimized for the Switch
  • Silky smooth 60 FPS
  • Full support for docked and handheld play

“We love the Switch. Our team spent months and months and months making sure we did a great job bringing SUPERHOT to the most innovative video gaming system we’ve played in years. Full gyro controls make the game incredibly more immersive – you really feel like an action hero, you use your whole body to dodge hails of slow motion bullets. It’s a feeling we worked hard to evoke on PC and other consoles but SUPERHOT on Switch just takes it to an entirely new level.” – Tom Kaczmarczyk, Cofounder

SUPERHOT can be purchased on the eShop as of today for $24.99 USD and is also available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
