War Tech Fighters Invade Nintendo Switch on June 27th!

SYDNEY, NSW — May 7, 2019 — War Tech Fighters, the sci-fi mech action game from publisher Blowfish Studios and developer Drakkar Dev, blasts off for its Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One release on June 27, 2019.

Lead a talented squadron of rogue pilots set adrift in space after the ruthless Zatros empire conquered colonies of Hebos and Ares. Armed with giant fighting robots, called War Techs, Captain Nathan Romanis and company traverse the galaxy across more than 30 missions to liberate their people and exact vengeance on their evil oppressors once and for all.

War Techs come equipped for both close combat and long-range engagements. Utilize a variety of bullet, laser, and magnetic weapons to deal damage to Zatronian forces and their army of War Techs from a distance. Then, when the situation calls for it, get up close and personal to pull off brutal and stylish execution moves with the mechs’ devastating sword weapons.

War Techs are highly-customizable machines that span three distinct core body classes and sport more than 180 upgradeable systems and parts. Use the fast and light Hawk class to fly circles around enemies, get in the enemy’s face with the slow and heavy Rhino-class mecha, or opt for a more balanced approach with flexible Lynx-class War Techs.

The console version of War Tech Fighters exclusively features the powerful Archangel War Tech special set with the Glory Sword, Redemption Halberd, and Faith Shield, all available from the beginning of the game. Style also matters, as pilots can customize their War Tech with thousands of paint and livery options while scavenging parts hidden throughout the galaxy.

“War Tech Fighters is a heart-pounding mech action experience steeped in science fiction,” said Ben Lee, CEO, Blowfish Studios. “We’re proud to have partnered with Drakkar Dev to bring the game to consoles and hope everyone is looking forward to blasting off into outer space and battling armies of massive fighting robots when War Tech Fighters launches on June 27.”

War Tech Fighters releases June 27 for $19.99 USD / €17.99 / £15.99 / $24.99 AUD via the Nintendo Switch eShop, PlayStation Store, and Microsoft Store. The game supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Russian language options.

Blast the forces of Hellion in bone-based arena battler, Skelly Selest, May 24th on Nintendo Switch!

2 May 2019 – Indie publisher Digerati and developer Caiysware are excited to announce that the fast-paced slash ‘n’ dash and run ‘n’ gun action of Skelly Selest is headed to Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and Xbox One later this month.

Skelly Selest places players in the battle-hardened bone shoes of a Heavenly Keeper, in a relentless score-attack challenge against waves of Hellion forces.

“Skelly Selest was only intended as a small game jam but the release reaction really blew me away,” says developer Anthony Case. “On Steam it quickly racked up 100 reviews with a 98% positive rating, so I spent time with the Skelly community adding a whole bunch of new stuff to expand it to it’s current deamonica form. It was a real communal effort and a lot of fun, hope you enjoy the spooks!”

Take on procedurally-generated gauntlets of hellspawn and bosses, and – with precise fighting prowess – defeat the sinful horrors that lurk in the depths of Hell.

Key features

  • Fight furious battles across several modes, including a roguelite dungeon crawler, endless arena, Boss Rush, challenging Penitence Trials, and even a strategic collectable card game
  • Visit the Bone Plains, Flesh Gardens, and other charming locations across a vibrant pixel-art hellscape Make acquaintances with monstrous enemies and bosses
  • Wield blessed items, weapons, and armor to survive
  • Rescue a variety of unlockable character classes and spiffy hats

VA-11 HALL-A Opens for Business on Switch Today!

CARACAS, VENEZUELA – May 2, 2019 – VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action, the booze em’up about waifus, technology, and post-dystopia life which has sold more than 300,000 copies on Steam from Ysbryd Games and developer Sukeban Games, serves players on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 today.

It’s 207X in Glitch City, a city boasting unparalleled technological advancements. However, residents suffer the effects of unethical nanomachine experiments and a corrupt government. To escape this sad reality, residents seek solace through android lovers, supersonic drone racing, or the bottom of a boozy glass.

Enter Jill, resident bartender at VA-11 HALL-A, Glitch City’s preeminent dive bar. She’ll pour drinks for a humanoid robot popstar, the editor-in-chief of a beloved magazine and his interns, law enforcement officials, and even a boy-crazy hacker. Meanwhile, they’ll pour out their souls.

VA-11 HALL-A mixes alcohol with a dash of simple syrup and a hefty pour of point-and-click adventures: characters react to drinks served, with customers’ level of inebriation affecting the flow of the story. Serving drinks that suit patrons’ tastes gets Jill tips to pay her bills, but dissatisfied patrons may leave her to drown in her own sorrows.

Set the tone for the adventure by curating infectious electronic synthpop playlists for the jukebox. A dark, pixelated anime art style frames the laidback experience, adding to VA-11 HALL-A’s immersive atmosphere.

“We wanted the bar itself to be as memorable as the colorful cast of cyberpunk characters, a place where hope exists amid a daily struggle,” said Christopher “Kiririn51” Ortiz, co-founder, Sukeban Games. “VA-11 HALL-A serves a narrative-driven experience about steering intimate conversations with strangers, so it was important to give it the right vibe.”

VA-11 HALL-A is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam for the regular price of $14.99 USD. It supports English and Japanese, with other localizations to be added to these versions later.

Physical editions for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, as well as a special Collector’s Edition boxset for Nintendo Switch, will be available from Limited Run later this year.
