Captain Blood Arrives On Nintendo Switch Later This Year!

London, United Kingdom – June 18th, 2024 – Avast, ye scurvy dogs! Captain Blood, the pirate-themed action game last showcased in 2010, will launch in 2024! SNEG Ltd, a publishing studio that aims to preserve forgotten titles, reveals today that Captain Blood will be released on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch later this year.

Loosely based on the adventure novels written by author Rafael Sabatini, Captain Blood is a pirate-themed action game set in the golden age of piracy during the 17th century, where you step into the boots of the most feared pirate captain to ever sail across the seven seas on his quest for gold and glory. Undergoing several iterations throughout its development in the 2000s, Captain Blood was last showcased in 2010 before vanishing for years due to publishing disputes. Now, SNEG Ltd. is excited to bring the game back for fans of classic pirate adventure, combining its original glory with modern improvements for today’s gamers and consoles.

You play as Captain Blood, the manliest pirate captain ever to drink grog while romancing maidens across the Spanish main. When the local magistrate’s beautiful buxom daughter is kidnapped, he swallows his pride and hires you and your crew to rescue her. Expect wild adventures with cannon firing, pistol shooting, swashbuckling sword fights, and plenty of pirate shenanigans. This action-packed hack’n’slash features fierce hand-to-hand combat, hordes of enemies, and a classic fighting system with flashy combos and epic finishers.

Key Features:

  • Epic Pirate Shenanigans: As Captain Blood, live the life of the bravest and most fearsome pirate on the Spanish Main (or at least fake it convincingly).
  • Intense Action: Dive into fiery hand-to-hand combat and show enemy pirates and landlubbers alike who’s the boss with various slick combat techniques.
  • Ship Deck Brawls: Fight off enemy pirates trying to board your ship with unique moves, combos, and executions while blasting enemy ships to pieces with your cannons!
  • Arsenal of Awesomeness: Arm yourself with cutlasses, pistols, muskets, throwing knives, and hand bombs. Don’t forget those sneaky pirate tricks!
  •  Graphic Novel Vibes: Enjoy a unique art style that feels like reading through a pirate comic book.

The game will launch simultaneously on all platforms later this year.

Rider’s Spirits Zoom into Digital Stores June 7th!

June 3rd, 2024 – Today Ratalaika Games and Shinyuden announce that Masaya’s legendary ‘Bike Daisuki! Hashiriya Kon‘ – or, Rider’s Spirits as it’s known in the west, is set to release on June 7th on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One & Series S|X and Nintendo Switch!

For the uninitiated, this evergreen cult classic at first seems heavily inspired by Mario Kart but looks can be deceiving! The game has features like being able to check on the actions of their competition, drop into the pit stop to fuel up and change items – more of a simulator style play but equally as fun!

The game has 20 different tracks which include asphalt and dirt, with each including their own unique design and obstacles to avoid like traffic cones, water ponds and even stone pillars. With each character in-game having their own skillset, players need to master various techniques to ensure they stay at the top of their game, as some stages are actually more difficult for certain characters.

Playing is Easy, Mastering is Not!

Each of the bikes and riders have their own unique attributes and qualities. Some bikes, for example, are faster in a straight line, whilst others have incredible grip. Find the bike and rider combination that suits you and aim for the elusive #1 spot!

Play head to head against the computer, or locally with a friend, and compete in a wide variety of racing tracks and game modes. Choose from an array of wacky racers and show off your riding skills. If things get ugly, use all kinds of crazy items in order to get advantage and be the first one to cross the finishing line!

The Game Includes Five Different Game Modes:

  • Rider’s GP: You race in several tracks and earn points based on your finishing place. The racer with more points at the end wins the tournament.
  • Time Trial: Try to obtain the fastest time
  • Endurance: Make a team of two racers and try to stay first during 1, 3 or 5 minutes, just remember if you run out of fuel you are out, so make sure to enter the pit stop to exchange racers
  • Battle Race (2 players): Compete with another player to see who is the first to cross the goal
  • Chicken Run (2 players): Run down a road and stop as close to the edge without going over
