Demon Pit Coming to Nintendo Switch!

15 August 2019 – Indie publisher Digerati is delighted to announce Demon Pit – an intense, arcade-style arena shooter launching later this year (Q3/Q4) on Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Demon Pit is available to wishlist now on Steam.

An intense arcade-style arena shooter with a classic 90s FPS aesthetic, Demon Pit tests your reflexes against endless waves of the demon horde in a constantly changing arena. Your goal is a high score on the leaderboard, the price is your soul. Far from God’s light, there is only Hell.

A collaboration between DoomCube and Psychic Software, two developers based in Galway, Republic of Ireland, and with music by composer Thomas O’Boyle, Demon Pit is a throwback to the FPS classics of the 1990s. It combines retro-authentic low poly 3D graphics, with uncompromisingly hardcore skill-based gameplay.

“Creating Demon Pit has been an exercise in balancing speed, challenge, purity and chaos,” explains DoomCube’s Paul Conway, artist and designer on Demon Pit. “I want players to fight forward, experiencing its unrelenting pace as they progress through waves of enemies and grasp for their place on the leaderboard.”

About the game

Arise Demon Hunter. It is time. The years you spent slaughtering demon-kind in the mortal world did little to cleanse your soul. Your sins have been laid bare and you have been judged. You are damned for eternity. The pit awaits!

Inspired by the fast-paced FPS games of the 1990s, Demon Pit is an intense arcade-style arena shooter. Armed with a series of ranged weapons and a soul grapple, you must fight and out maneuver endless waves of demons in a constantly changing environment. How long can you survive before they rip your flesh and claim your soul?

Key features

  • Battle 10 types of hideous hell spawn
  • Repel the demon horde with 7 varied weapons
  • Use your soul grapple to traverse the arena quickly and avoid the oncoming legion
  • Master movement to survive the changing environment and its hazards
  • Constantly kill to keep your multiplier alive and compete for leaderboard immortality

Sports Fighter KungFu Kickball Scores 2020 Nintendo Switch Release!

SYDNEY – Aug. 14, 2019 – KungFu Kickball, the team-based sports platform fighter from developer WhaleFood Games and publisher Blowfish Studios, strikes Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for Windows PC and Mac in Q1 2020.

Square off against friends in a fantasy sport that infuses the action of soccer with martial arts. Unleash a whirlwind of kicks, punches, and magical abilities to take out the opposing team and boot the ball downfield. Score points by overpowering or outmaneuvering rival defenders and send the ball crashing into one of the gigantic bells at either end of the stadium.

KungFu Kickball makes use of minimalistic controls to create an accessible yet competitive experience. Matches are fast-paced tug-of-war-style showdowns where players switch between offensive strikes and defensive stands at the drop of a hat — or the ring of a bell. And with six stages and three player classes to choose between, every match takes on its own character.

Featuring local and online 1v1 and 2v2 multiplayer, KungFu Kickball allows for rivalries to form on the couch or over the Internet. Challenge friends, foes, and strangers alike to see which side can pull off the best maneuvers and ultimately determine who is the KungFu Kickball master.

“KungFu Kickball is a new kind of sports game that injects the high-flying action of martial arts,” said Ben Lee, co-founder, Blowfish Studios. “As fans of both sport and kung fu action, we’re having a lot of fun with this project and look forward to sharing it with everyone early next year.”

KungFu Kickball will feature support for English, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Simplified Chinese language options. Blowfish Studios will showcase KungFu Kickball at PAX West 2019 in Seattle from Aug. 30 through Sept. 2.

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends Bursts Onto Nintendo Switch This November!

Stuttgart, Germany – August 14, 2019 – After more than 10 years, Nintendo Switch players can look forward to a sequel of the cult 80’s game series Bubble Bobble by TAITO. The new Bubble Bobble 4 Friends was developed by the original studio TAITO Corporation and will include a brand new local 4-player mode. The sequel will be released both digitally and physically exclusively for Nintendo Switch in Europe on November 19, 2019, with the release in the USA to follow in the first quarter of 2020.

As in the previous highly popular series, the thrilling and epic bubble fight starts again!

One night, a child’s room became enfolded by a miraculous light and every object under its rays suddenly came to life – including the child’s most favourite toy, the little dragon called Bub. Full of jealousy, the wicked magician Baron von Blubba challenges the friendly dragon to battle.

In the ’80s and ’90s, the players jumped through the levels either solo or in the two-player mode. In the new part of the popular Bubble Bobble series, a 4-player cooperative mode is integrated, providing even more fun with friends.

“Bubble Bobble is an extremely popular title in Europe, so we decided to implement a pre-sale in Europe in conjunction with ININ Games and Strictly Limited Games. It is also the first internally developed title since Taito has re-entered the consumer market, and the development team is thrilled to be working on this famous IP. I deeply hope that many people will enjoy it” says Hiroshi Uemura, Executive Officer, Division Manager of Development, TAITO CORPORATION.

Collectors can look forward to the Collector’s Edition of Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, distributed exclusively by Strictly Limited Games. The ININ publishing label markets the retail versions and digital releases on the Nintendo eShop.
