Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption Releases Oct 18th on Nintendo Switch!

HONG KONG – Sept. 27, 2018 – Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption, the boss battler from publisher Another Indie and the senior AAA veterans at developer Dark Star Game Studios, will come to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Oct. 18. Discord users will also brave its dangers when Sinner debuts on Windows and Mac as a First on Discord launch title later this year, with a Steam release to follow.

Created by a team including a former Ubisoft art director, Konami senior programmer and a Blizzard technical artist, Sinner follows Adam, a soldier with a dark past. Adam embarks on a journey for absolution, facing off against monstrous beasts to reconcile his heinous crimes. Based on the seven deadly sins, these savage specters will reveal their personal connections with Adam as he advances his quest for atonement to a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack.

Battles will become increasingly difficult with each sacrifice as Adam’s vitality is reduced, his arsenal breaks down and his armor withers away. Alternate gear can be unlocked in New Game+ mode, lending replayability to Adam’s journey for redemption.

“Sinner provides the intense action players crave in hardcore games through intimate battles that are accessible in any order,” says Iain Garner, director of developer relations, Another Indie. “By giving players the freedom to choose their path through its devilish challenges, Sinner offers player agency without sacrificing a compelling story.”

Oh My Godheads: Party Edition Hits Nintendo Switch Today!

London, UK – 25th September 2018: Square Enix Collective is excited to announce Oh My Godheads will today launch on Nintendo Switch, marking the debut of the game’s brand new Party Edition.

Marking the first time the game has gone portable, Barcelona-based studio Titutitech’s celebrated couch-based multiplayer can now be taken on indoors, outdoors – pretty much absolutely anywhere. That all means that, if you fancy taking on your friends on the bus, on a plane, or even in the Doctor’s waiting room so you can check out that dodgy rash, Oh My Godheads’ brand new Party Edition on Nintendo Switch has you sorted.

“The new Party Edition of Oh My Godheads is something we’ve been looking to do ever since launch, and this new upgraded version feels perfectly at home on Nintendo Switch,” says Federico Sauret, co-CEO of Titutitech. “We created a game designed to recapture the sense of fun so many couch-based multiplayer games pulled off in the 1990s, and this is something Nintendo itself has long been a master at. It all meant Nintendo Switch was the logical home for this new Party Edition.”

Oh My Godheads manic multiplayer charges players with carrying a variety of magical Godheads back to their base, closely mirroring traditional capture-the-flag style gameplay but adding a whole heap of extra delirium thrown in for good measure. Aside from defending against each other’s attacks, gamers also have to take on the Godhead itself – a typically disobliging and hostile memento rather cool on your advances.

In addition to all the content from the original Oh My Godheads, the Party Edition includes:

●        New content including a new tower level, new godhead, and a gallery with game art.

●        New Tournament mode modality, allowing players to compete in a set number of matches with a brand new points system.

●        Refined visuals, improved core player movement (allowing you to tackle your rivals and send them flying), re-balanced levels and godheads, improved UI, and AI.

●        Trials mode can now either be played solo or in co-op mode.

●        In addition, most trials have been redesigned adding 10 new trials.

●        A brand new Platinum Medal tier for the most skilled players!

●        Optimisation to take advantage of Nintendo Switch hardware.

“This latest version takes the best elements of Oh My Godheads and builds on them brilliantly,” says Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix West. “It’s the ultimate party game. On top of optimising play for the new format, taking the game portable means watching just where players indulge in some retro-style couch multiplayer in the coming months is going to be my own personal hobby in the weeks ahead.”

Oh My Godheads: Party Edition is available today on Nintendo Switch on with a 10% discount for the first two weeks (normal price £11.99/$14.99/€14.99). Original Oh My Godheads is already available on PS4, Xbox One and Steam for £11.99/$14.99/€14.99).

What is Oh My Godheads?

●        Hilarious couch multiplayer for 1-4 players

●        Battle computer-controlled characters in single player mode

●        ‘Capture-the-head’ gameplay supercharges capture-the-flag with uniquely powered godheads

●        Multiple magical godheads – explosions, control-switching and more

●        Bright, colourful 3D environments in world-spanning locales

●        Ridiculous cast of characters to play

●        Swords, hats, monocles and airborne pastries

Emotional Adventure My Brother Rabbit Available on Nintendo Switch!

KATOWICE, POLAND – Sept. 21, 2018 – My Brother Rabbit, the heartwarming adventure game from Artifex Mundi, explores children’s incredible power to cope with gloom through imagination on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac today.

Sudden illness overcomes a family’s cherished daughter. While the parents work hard to seek out the best treatment to help their child, their son takes it upon himself to help his sister cope with the cold and unfamiliar hospital. A combination of love for his sister, earnest imagination, and a beloved stuffed toy rabbit enables him to create a wondrous landscape and story to comfort her.

Through the lens of make-believe, the rabbit is a living denizen in a brilliant, surreal world. His friend flower is similarly ill, so he sets out on a voyage to help her. No obstacle can stop him on his quest to find the cure to her ailments. Clues and items necessary to progress hide behind every leaf and in every corner. Once found, these objects unlock over 30 entertaining puzzles including building fantastical vehicles to continue the rabbit’s trek.

As the rabbit edges ever closer toward his destination, the imaginary world increasingly incorporates details from the children’s true surroundings. Though the circumstances are grim and the unfamiliar hospital can feel sterile, they pull from what they see and twist it into a positive light. An aquarium becomes an aquatic adventure, and the doctor becomes a sweet bear eager to heal the flower. Perspective is everything, and their youthful eyes perpetuate hope even when the world is scary.

A melancholy score dreamt up by Arkadiusz Reikowski (Layers of Fear, Seven: The Days Long Gone) and Emi Evans (NieR: Automata, Dark Souls) accompanies My Brother Rabbit’s awe-inspiring, hand-painted vistas. Lush sights and sounds drive home how creative children can be when creating entire worlds in their noggins. With no spoken dialogue or written words throughout, the ethereal soundtrack and the universal of languages of love and commitment guide players on this magical quest.

“As strange as the pretend world is in My Brother Rabbit, children’s innate ability to perceive the world in amazing ways is very real,” said Łukasz Sałata, lead artist at Artifex Mundi. “Our own children helped us create the game, and we are ecstatic to finally share their creativity with players.”

My Brother Rabbit is available for $14.99 in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Turkish on Nintendo Switch, Steam, Windows Store, Mac App Store, GOG, Humble Store, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One now.
