Comically Vicious Vertical Platformer Jump King makes the jump to Switch on June 9th!

London, United Kingdom, May 27th, 2020 – UKIYO Publishing and independent game developer Nexile are thrilled to announce that their critically acclaimed and comically punishing platformer Jump King is heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on June 9th.

Jump King is a tough as nails “tactical leaping adventure” that challenges players to ascend a colossal tower to rescue a smoking hot babe at the top, where all they can do is jump. Players must set themselves in the desired position, charge their jump just right, then let gravity do its thing as they make each nerve-wracking leap. Should they be the right and true king of jumping, they shall land on a ledge. Otherwise… well, it could be a long drop down.

Every point of progress is saved along the way… but so is every setback. Jumps that cause you little grief one time may become the bane of your existence upon encountering them again. It’s worth experimenting with different routes and tactics though, as Jump King features multiple paths to success. All this is wrapped up in a nostalgic pixel art aesthetic, full of colorful characters and evocative locales.

Make no mistake, Jump King is an extraordinarily difficult game, yet it can be relished by anyone looking for a tough but fair challenge. It’s sadistic enough to drive a seasoned gamer to tears, yet accessible enough due to its simple controls and mechanics, that anyone can overcome its challenges – perseverance is key! Do you have what it takes to be the one true Jump King?

“It’s great to finally be able to share Jump King with players on console,” said Felix Wahlström of Nexile. “Building the entire game around just jumping was very amusing. I’m happy we stuck with the purity of our vision. We managed to distill the mechanic to one of its truest forms, creating an unforgettable challenge for players! Jump King has a modern structure and a mechanic taken for granted with a twist, all in a captivating and classic package. We think console gamers will both love and hate it, just like we do”.

“Jump King continues to offer the team at UKIYO Publishing some of the most hair-pulling, infuriatingly fun moments of our gaming lives,” said Paul Hann of UKIYO Publishing. “I’ve still not managed to reach the top of this devilish castle, but at least now I can try to do so from the comfort of my sofa.”

Keen – One Girl Army Slays Evil Hordes June 25th on Nintendo Switch!

TOKYO – May 26, 2020 – Keen – One Girl Army, the tactical turn-based puzzle adventure from publisher Phoenixx and developer Cat Nigiri, will skate and slash onto Nintendo Switch™ as well as Steam for Windows and Mac on Thursday June 25, 2020.

Strap on a pair of roller skates, hoist a razor-sharp sword and prepare to slice through more than 20 enemy types including zombies, robots and ninjas. Navigate sprawling maze-like dungeons set in mysterious forests, top-secret underwater labs, orbital military outposts and other exotic locations filled with challenging bosses. Help the heroine Kim save her village.

Hailing from a lineage of female warriors, Kim’s island home is in peril. A corporation’s insidious expansion plans threaten to bring 500 years of peace to an end, with only Kim’s lightning-fast reflexes and weapons standing in the way.

Earn gadgets and powerups making her a true one girl army able to teleport past blockades, stun groups of foes, trap enemies and eradicate any obstacle along the way. Skate through ten enigmatic regions depicted in a cute but creepy art style, from the village Kim leaves behind through the Forest of Illusions on the way to the big city.

“Kim comes from a remote island, and her journey to take on the final boss at the enemy’s headquarters will take her through many strange and imaginative areas,” said Caio Lopez, founder of Cat Nigiri. “Keen – One Girl Army layers combat, movement and puzzle design on top of each other to create an experience where you don’t go back and forth between the elements, but instead get to think about all of them at once.”

Keen – One Girl Army will be available on Nintendo Switch and Steam for Windows and Mac on June 25 for $15.99 USD. It will support English, Brazilian Portuguese and Japanese.
