Ninja squirrels! Yes, ninja squirrels, star in today’s Xbox Live Game Store update. My dog will be so mad…
Those ninja squirrels are the stars of Nutjitsu, Ninjabee’s overhead nut-stealing game that was originally released for the PC last year. The game, which is the second ID@Xbox release on the Xbox One, will outfit the squirrels with “smoke bombs, ninja speed, shadow clones, freeze bombs, and flame cloaks” in their quest to steal nuts from foxes. Oh yeah, my dog will be very mad to hear that.
Over on the Xbox 360, Spiders has brought their action RPG, Bound By Flame, to the Games on Demand service. Who doesn’t love wizards that can control fire?
In case you’re unfamiliar with Nutjitsu or Bound By Flame, more information on both games is available after the break. (more…)
Gather all your friends, because its Sportsfriends time. The retro-inspired multiplayer game offers four unconventional twists on the standard sports game (including competitive pole vaulting, a Smash Bros./dodgeball mashup, and four-goal soccer) and pulls them all together in one awesome package for the PS3 and PS4. Speaking of sports, MLB 14: The Show has also been released for the PS4 and the acclaimed soccer management sim, Football Manager Classic 2014, is now available for the Vita.
The ancient sport of “killing lots of dudes” represents itself well in this week’s PlayStation Store update as God of War Collection (a compilation of God of War and God of War II) is now available for the Vita (as a PS3/Vita Cross-Buy game) and action RPG Bound By Flame has been released for the PS3 and PS4. Are you not entertained?
Finally this week, the beloved PS2 RPG Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne has been added to the PS2 Classics storefront.
More information on all of these titles (and a few additional new releases) can be found after the break. A complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
This week’s new release report once again focuses on games that have found new homes. Games like…
- Borderlands 2. Gearbox’s insane shooter is now available on the Vita thanks to the Borderlands 2 Vita Bundle. A standalone version of the Vita port will be available next week.
- God of War Collection. The God of War and God of War II compilation has also been shrunk down to Vita size.
- MLB 14: The Show. Sony’s baseball simulation has made the next-generation leap to the PS4.
But there’s still a trio of NEW new releases this week as well. Bound By Flame, a medieval action RPG from Spiders Studio will be released this week for the PC, PS3, PS4, and Xbox 360. It will be joined by Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure, the first new Tex Murphy game in over 15 years, and Hakuoki: Stories of the Shinsengumi, a visual novel-style RPG for the PS3.
Naturally, a bunch of new games will be added to the PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop, Xbox Live Store, and Steam throughout the week. We’ll talk more about those games soon.
The new Bound by Flame trailer is absolutely gorgeous. Spider Studios goes into more detail about the game, including the main character’s demon side, as well as the mechanics of the game, the combat system, the bestiary, and the crafting system.
But that’s not all. We also get a glimpse at some of the other characters the hero will come into contact with – some of them sexy ladies with whom he can make out – as well as some fantastic creatures.
Bound by Flame is due to come out in Q2 2014 for the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Xbox 360.
