Fractured Soul is a game I haven’t heard a lot about, but after reading this press release, seeing these screenshots and watching this trailer, I’m intrigued. The game is coming to the 3DS eShop on September 13th courtesy of Endgame Studios. It’s a sidescrolling action platformer that will actually take place on both screens at once.
According to the developer, there are more than 30 levels across five different zones that will encompass both side scrolling and shooter styles of gameplay. Online leaderboards will allow speedrunners around the world to compete against each other. If you really want to test your skills, there will be hardcore challenges available to unlock as you play.
The game reminds me a lot of another game that was available on DSiWare and WiiWare called Chronos Twins, which had a similar style of play. I’m going to start The World Ends With You soon, so I’ll be primed for some dual screen games. Fractured Soul hits the eShop on September 13th and will run you $11.99. Screencaps after the jump.
I’m going to be completely honest with you here. I have absolutely no idea what Adventure Time is. I’ve never seen it. I know Micah is crazy about it and it’s been used in countless parodies on the internet. D3 Publisher is bringing a game to the market later this year for the DS and the 3DS entitled Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage. The one bit of information I know (which means I have to play the game) is the game is being developed by WayForward. Here’s a blurb from the press release.
In the first licensed Adventure Time video game, Finn and Jake wake up one morning to find their trash stolen by the Ice King. Jake couldn’t care less about half-eaten bananas, crumpled up burrito wrappers, and old chicken diapers – but when they find out the Ice King is using their stolen goods to construct a Garbage Princess, the heroes embark on a fantastical adventure to teach him a lesson! Journey through the Land of Ooo in an offbeat adventure and discover perilous dungeons and unimaginable treasures, while playing as Finn and Jake in a unique action-adventure experience.
Past the break are some screenshots and a trailer. Enlighten me as to exactly what this is and why I should pay attention to it. Apparently people like Adventure Time. Who knew?
This rather unique racing game is heading to the 3DS eShop on August 30th. I think it looks interesting. I’m very interested to see how it looks in 3D.
The more I see of this game, the more I want to play it. Capcom might have something with this third-person shooter set in the Lost Planet universe. There hasn’t been an announcement for a North American release date, but with the previous games in the franchise coming out here, it would make sense that Capcom would eventually release the game here as well.
I’m afraid to say that Toki Tori is one of those games that’s gone completely under my radar. I didn’t realize until recently that the game has been around since the days of the Game Boy Advance. I know there is WiiWare game as well, but I’ve never played it. Two Tribes has announced they are working on a sequel to the game — cleverly titled Toki Tori 2 – and it’s going to be hitting the Wii U eShop later this year. The developers are hoping to have the game ready for the system’s launch, but haven’t promised anything as of yet.
One of the more interesting features of the Wii U game is the inclusion of something called the Tokidex. Yes, it is very similar to a Pokedex and will allow you to use the Wii U Game Pad to scan the area around you. You can actually move the controller around and take pictures of any of the creatures you encounter, adding them to your Tokidex. The PC version of the game will be available to play at Gamescom and PAX Prime. Until then, here’s a trailer.
I’ve never played any of the Lost Planet games, but this looks like a lot of fun. E.X. Troopers is a spin-off from that series being developed for the 3DS and is scheduled to come out later this year in Japan. There is no word yet on whether or not it will be coming to North America, but I hope it does. Capcom released this animated promo for the game and I thought I’d share it with you.
In the game you play as Bren Turner, a new recruit that’s been transfered to EDN III. Most of the story is told through cel-shaded, comic-book-style visuals with onamonapia on the screen when guns fire or characters get hit.
I have no real idea what this game is actually about, but I know I want to play it. It’s called Little Inferno and it’s being developed by Tomorrow Corporation. The same company also happens to be the team that brought you World of Goo. The premise of the game has something to do with the world being frozen and you need to sit in front of your “Little Inferno Entertainment Fireplace” and burn all of your toys to warm up the world. At least that’s what I think it’s about.
The game is set to come to Wii U, PC and iOS this winter. You can head on over to the game’s official page and sign up for the paid beta program, which also gets you a copy of the full release. The Windows beta will be coming first with the Mac and Linux versions coming later.
Zen Studios second pinball outing for the 3DS, Marvel Pinball 3D, is hitting the eShop this Thursday, June 28th. That is according to a press release the developer sent out today. The new game will sell for $7.99 and will feature four tables.
- Live a day in the life of the Marvel Universe’s favorite genius billionaire playboy philanthropist on the Iron Man table! Tony Stark literally suits up in his Iron Man armor to combat infamous foes like the Mandarin, Whiplash and Ultimo.
- Join Blade and Hannibal King in New York to fight off the vampiric forces led by Deacon Frost. Special lighting effects switch between day and night, so be sure to regenerate during the day in order to prepare for the battles after dark.
- Rally the troops and prepare to help Captain America and the Howling Commandos defeat Baron Zemo and the Red Skull, as you fight to control the power of the Cosmic Cube.
- Take on Doctor Doom alongside the Fantastic Four. Mister Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Thing and the Human Torch are extra fantastic in beautiful 3D!
If you’ve played the tables on the XBLA version of Pinball FX2 then you know what to expect. They’re pretty good tables. I am particularly fond on the Captain America table, but as with most of the tables done by the studio they’re all lots of fun. It sells as a stand alone title and not as an expansion to Zen Pinball 3D, but if you like virtual pinball you’ll probably want to check them out.
I’ll have a review of the game later this week. Head past the break for some screenshots and a trailer.
Fans of the Zen Studio’s pinball platform, Pinball FX2, have been wondering when they are going to see new tables available to play. Today, Zen Studios announced the wait won’t last much longer as Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles is set to hit XBLA next week, June 20th. PS3 owners will have a slightly shorter wait as the expansion to Marvel Pinball hits the PSN on June 19th. The full expansion will run you 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99 depending on the platform you choose.
To get you ready for the release of those tables, Zen Studios has released another trailer for The Infinity Gauntlet table. According to the developer it is their biggest step towards telling a story through pinball and features 139 lines of dialogue.
