Code Of Princess EX Begins Her Journey Today On Nintendo Switch!

SANTA ANA, California, July 31, 2018 — Nicalis, Inc. today announced that Code of Princess EX is ready for battle and releases today in digital and physical form on Nintendo Switch. Developed by Studio Saizensen, Code of Princess EX remains true to the classic action RPG, while introducing new HD graphics, a local co-op option and numerous other gameplay additions and enhancements including smarter AI, updated balancing, a new character leveling-up system and overall better playability.

Code of Princess EX features classic “hack-and-slash” gameplay where players can freely move between three different planes of action and attack enemies using a variety of powerful fighting combos, lock-on and burst systems. There are over 50 different playable characters in the game who can be leveled up throughout multiple game modes, including Campaign, Free Play and Bonus Quests.

The main storyline in Code of Princess EX focuses on Princess Solange of DeLuxia, who is thrust into the role of guardian and protector of the legendary sword DeLuxcalibur after her family’s castle is overtaken by a siege of rampaging monsters. Venturing out beyond the castle walls, she soon discovers that the monster onslaught has blanketed the entire kingdom with terror and oppression. As she fights to restore order, Solange selectively recruits a diverse team of powerful and agile combatants in an attempt to bring peace to the land.

Code of Princess EX is developed in Japan by Studio Saizensen (Blade Strangers) in collaboration with Kinu Nishimura (longtime Street Fighter artist), Tetsuhiko Kikuchi (Guardian Heroes director/character designer) and Masaki Ukyo (Guardian Heroes lead programmer). Former Capcom artist Bengus (a.k.a. Gouda Cheese) also contributed to the in-game artwork.

Published by Nicalis, the digital and physical release of Code of Princess EX is rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB and is available now on Nintendo Switch for $39.99 MSRP. The launch edition of the retail version includes the game card along with a full-color instruction booklet and a 3-inch audio CD soundtrack sampler inside the game package.

2064: Read Only Memories Investigates Nintendo Switch August 14!

SAN FRANCISCO – July 31, 2018 – 2064: Read Only Memories Integral, the cyberpunk narrative adventure from MidBoss with more than 200,000 copies sold across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, will explore Nintendo Switch on August 14, 2018. It is available for pre-orders today with a 10% discount until launch.

Take to the streets with the “Punks” side story, remastered, fully voiced and seamlessly integrated exclusively into 2064: Read Only Memories Integral on Nintendo Switch. Other content in this definitive edition of Read Only Memories includes video clips from the cutting room floor, a jukebox with never-before-heard tracks, as well as all of the voice acting, other polish and content added to the game since its initial launch.

Follow Turing, who claims to be the world’s first fully sapient ROM (Relationship and Organizational Manager) on a mysterious investigation after the disappearance of their creator. Turing is as witty as they are cute and depending on player choices can become a close companion while helping solve point-and-click puzzles and problem-solving minigames.

The city of Neo San-Francisco transposes modern day social issues into a hopeful cyberpunk future by asking questions about identity, individuality and what it is to be human. With a diverse cast of characters, each fully voiced by talents including industry legends Melissa Hutchison (The Walking Dead), Adam Harrington (Middle Earth: Shadow of War, The Wolf Among Us) and more, 2064: Read Only Memories Integral puts the focus on meaningful interactions and choices while exploring topics such as advanced AI, cybernetic enhancements and genetic experimentation.

“The core of Read Only Memories’ beloved story complete with positive representation of marginalized people is unchanged, but it’s been enhanced and expanded over the years.” said Cade Peterson, interim CEO, Midboss. “With the definitive edition for Nintendo Switch, players returning to the futuristic world of Neo San-Francisco can find just as many things to be excited about as people visiting for the first time.”

2064 will be available in the Nintendo Switch eShop for $20.64USD and support English with full audio and Japanese with a text-only localization.

Neon-infused Speed-runner RAZED To Hit Nintendo Switch This October!

London, UK July 31st, 2018 – Having started out putting players through their paces in as a finalist of Edge Magazine’s ‘Get Into Games’ competition, PQube and developer Warpfish Games are excited to announce the upcoming release of lightning-fast speed-runner RAZED on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Steam this September and October.

RAZED is a game focused on speed, with the player charged with making it to the finish line in the quickest time possible, dancing and darting across dynamic levels littered with obstacles designed to take you down. Power boosting skills unlocked along the way can send you soaring – sometimes literally – with every second saved edging you closer to a triumphant run.

In short, RAZED’s rather manic mantra is go fast, or die trying.

“With RAZED, we’ve taken the spirit that fuelled some of the most popular speed-runners and fused it with some stunning, neon-charged visuals that tap into some of the best arcade games from the last few decades,” says John Thompson, Designer at Warpfish Games.

“I think it’s a perfect marriage. Combined with the music it creates a kinetic environment focused on the concept of running as fast as you possibly can. Anyone can get the idea behind RAZED, but only the best will master the game. It really is a case of survival of the quickest.”

RAZED features:

  • Non-stop escalation: Sprint through 60 dynamic levels spread across six unique worlds, each with a distinct visual style, unlockable abilities and pulse-pounding boss battles.

  • Chart your own course: Veer off the beaten path and carve your own way through levels to achieve seemingly impossible times and unlock the S ranks.

  • Online leaderboards and ghost data: Challenge the world via online leaderboards, and race against friends’ ghosts in a game of asynchronous one-upmanship.

  • Fuss-free speedrunning: Nobody wants to wait around while striving for perfection. Falling short of your target time? Simply jab the restart button to return to the start of the level without any loading times.

  • Secret challenge levels: Employ all your different skills and abilities to find RAZED’s toughest maps and tackle them head-on.

“I can truly say, once you see RAZED in full flow, you can’t keep your eyes off it,” adds Amaria Larchet, Product Manager at PQube. “It’s the kind of game we can imagine people watching someone play over their shoulder thinking ‘well, that looks straightforward enough’, before taking it on for themselves and finding out things aren’t quite so easy. It really is a head turner.”

RAZED will be available worldwide digitally on Steam and Xbox One on September 14th and on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on October 15th.
