‘Bullet-hell fusion’ shoot-em up Grand Brix Shooter Arrives on Nintendo Switch!

SEOUL, South Korea  August 29, 2019 – Grand Brix Shooter, a hyper arcade shootem up from developer and publisher Intragames, is out now for Nintendo Switch and PC Steam global.

Grand Brix Shooter, is a side-scroll bullet-hell fusion shooter that adds various elements for beginners to hard core players. Here is the introduction of the key system for the players of Grand Brix Shooter.

The Key of Fusion Technology, The Brix Core

The Brix Core, said to be controlled only by Prince Brix, is the nucleus of all the aircraft. This is the rhombus-shaped object that shines in the center of the device, and if it is hit, its durability is reduced. All the aircraft have a maximum health gauge of three spaces, and they will be destroyed when the gauge runs out. The only way to recover is by fusing with a new airframe.

The Fusion with Fuselage, The Fusion System

In most shooting games, the aircraft is either fixed or to be chosen to play at start. There is a basic type of brix core in Grand Brix Shooter, and the player will encounter with random aircraft airframe processing the game. The player can use the fusion system to get on a new aircraft. There are various types of fuselage that comes in random after shooting down a specific enemy.

The player can decide to replace the aircraft but once it gets changed, the aircraft level is reset so a careful judgement is required. Since each aircraft has different characteristics and comes in random, it is also important to determine the timing of replacement. In particular, when there is only one health gauge left with a high-performance three-level aircraft, you will have to choose either to replace it with a new one to get maximum health gauge or to just believe in your control and continue playing.

Nucleus Enhancement with a crystal and its Awakening

By shooting down the red enemy fighters, they will drop the crystals and by collecting certain amount of them, the level of the aircraft get upgraded by enhancing its performance. The maximum level of each aircraft is limited to three. The crystals fill the experience gauge and helps the player to be in awakening state where the aircrafts performance will be greatly enhanced over time. If the player grasp the time of the appearance of a strong enemy, using the awakening skill is recommended in a timely manner to play it more easily.

Aim for ranking the first place of leader board

After when the game is over, the scores are recorded on the leaderboard. There are separate leaderboards for Arcade and Challenge Mode. The records on the leaderboard will give the feelings of the greatest accomplishment for players.

The core systems described above are pretty important to play the game, so it would be helpful for the players to be acknowledged in advance before getting into the game.

It is NOT THE END until IT IS OVER

Challenge Mode is a unique mode of Grand Brix Shooter that infinitely push the player until their aircraft is destroyed. Be aware of the score ratio system and achieve top rankings on the leaderboard.

Share HP on the local co-op on the Challenge Mode

Grand Brix Shooter supports co-op mode up to 2 players. Co-op play of shootem up can be good a benefit but also be poison. The 2 players on the local co-op on the Challenge Mode share their HP. This means that if one of the player is damaged, the shared HP will be reduced. On the other hand, the HP will be restored once the player fuses with a new airframe, and this could create an opportunity to escape the crisis momentarily.

The game features English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese language options. On Steam, the game also supports Chinese (both Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, and Korean language support.

Grand Brix Shooter is released digitally on August 29 2019, for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation PC (Steam) for $9.99 NA / 9.99 EU / £8.99 UK.

Created in collaboration with the Italian comic book artist and animator Simone “Sio” Albrigi, Super Cane Magic ZERO features an array of characters from Sio’s popular YouTube cartoon channel Scottecs. A special coloring book created in conjunction with Sio is available from the official Super Cane Magic ZERO website.

Things look bad for the planetoid of WOTF, after Cake the Wizard died and his magic dog AAAH! freaked out.

Bring back the natural disorder of things across the 20+ hours campaign, featuring handcrafted and randomly generated dungeons. Find gear, eat bombs, crawl ridiculous dungeons and kill all the vegetables!

During your adventure, you will stumble upon tons of different and strange items: watermelons, sausages, lightbulbs, lava cakes, rocks, explosives, and other delicacies. Every time you pick up an object you’ll have to decide if you are in need of a weapon or a meal. Experiment by throwing or eating everything that is not nailed to the ground, and you will learn what each item can do for you.

Super Cane Magic ZERO’s strange journey can be enjoyed solo or up to 4 players in local co-op with dynamic difficulty that adapts to the party’s size. Eight competitive arenas also await to host local PvP battles among friends.

“Since I was a kid I dreamed of writing stories, drawing stuff, creating music and video games,” said Simone “Sio” Albrigi, YouTube cartoonist. “With Super Cane Magic ZERO I was able to do all these things together!”

Super Cane Magic ZERO is currently discounted 10% during its launch week via the North American PlayStation Store and Steam, where it graduates today from Early Access to full release. Nintendo Switch players who purchase the game in the first month will receive a free Secret Bonus Content DLC pack, which includes the Bouncy Bombers PvP arena as well as platform-exclusive chests and loot in the Underground Archives. A patch for Nintendo Switch is currently en route.

Console versions feature English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese language options. On Steam, the game also supports Chinese (both Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, and Korean language support.

Rogue-lite Action “Survive! Mr. Cube“ Launches June 21st On Nintendo Switch!

UPDATE

I am extremely sorry to announce that Survive! Mr. Cube, which was supposed to be released on June 21st for Nintendo Switch, has been delayed.

Once the issue is resolved, it will be launched successfully.

We are expecting it to launch June 28th.

Intragames (CEO Bae Sang-chan) announced that Survive! Mr. Cube will be officially released on 21st June, 2018 for Nintendo Switch which was self-developed by a three-man team.

Survive! Mr. Cube is a quarterview Rogue-lite RPG. Mr. Cube got into an unknown world after swallowing a pill and he is trying to go back to where he belong. Almost most of features and items in the game are randomly created once the game starts from the beginning and if the character dies when his HP gets 0, the player loses everything except the gold that was earned from the previous game. All the rest will be gone and starts all from the first chapter. In order to play it more easily, it can be a good strategy to kill the character until you get a good one with great skills and a weapon.

In order to survive to the end, the character must be strengthened, and there are treasure chests hidden in each stage that consist of items to increase HP, SP, speed up of an auto self-recovery, speed up of movement on Mr. Cube in the game. This will give higher chance for the players to survive. Other than that, if the competitor cube is killed, it leaves a heart, an item for life with a weapon. This will help the players to recover HP right before it gets 0. The most interesting part is that the location of the boss for each chapter changes randomly and no one knows where it will be. It is all based on luck how fast the players can find it and as it is mentioned previously in the article, it is important to survive by using the strategy.

If the character is dead, make sure you investigate the tomb at the base camp with a new cube character. The player will be able to find a decent item. Also, trading with a merchant for items with gold the player gained from the game is another way to get items. The items offered by the merchant are not only randomly determined, but also increase in price every time you make a trade. As most of features are random in this game, this game is highly related to “luck” and the players may feel challenged but with steady and persistent effort, it will lead them to the ending.
