It’s another strong week for the Xbox Games Store, and nearly a dozen new Xbox One games are now available to download through the digital storefront as part of its midweek update.
Leading the pack is Microsoft and Turn 10’s Forza Motorsport 7, the latest addition to their massively popular racing simulation series. It’s joined by a pair of minimalist indies (Inversus Deluxe and N++), as well as Joe Madureira’s Battle Chasers: Nightwar, and Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen.
Telltale Games is also back this week with another adventure for the Dark Knight… Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode 2: The Pact.

It’s another big week for the Nintendo Switch… because dozens of new titles (and a few new 3DS games) are now available to download through the Nintendo eShop.
Later this week, EA Sports will bring their soccer simulation FIFA 18 to the Switch on September 29. But beginning today, Sidebar’s “Golf RPG,” Golf Story, will tee off on the Switch eShop. It’ll be joined by monochromatic shooter Inversus Deluxe, picture puzzler Picross S, and co-op spaceship manager Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (on October 3).
Over on the 3DS, Nintendo fans will be able Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters on September 29 and Culdcept Revolt on October 3.

N++ is coming to Xbox One on October 4… Inversus is coming to Switch on September 28 and Xbox One on October 4
Two beloved indie games will have new platforms to call home in the next few weeks. N++ will soon make the leap to the Xbox One, while Inversus will shoot up the Xbox One and the Switch in the very near future.
You can find out exactly when both games will launch (and watch two new trailers) after the break. (more…)
Earlier this year, Hypersect announced that Inversus would make its way to the Xbox One sometime this year. That’s still the plan, but today, the developer confirmed the black-and-white shooter will also make its way to the Nintendo Switch.
The Xbox One and Switch launch will be retitled Inversus Deluxe, and Hypersect plans to add a wide variety of new features to the game alongside its new name:
New Features Planned For Inversus Deluxe
- 12 New Versus Maps and 4 New Arcade Maps create a total of 50 unique maps for players to enjoy.
- Test your skills in the new Single-Player Versus Mode by facing off against AI Bots that scale in difficulty from beginner to world-class player.
- The addition of Ranked Online Multiplayer rewards skill in both 1v1 and 2v2 games.
- New Real-Time Soft Shadows and High Definition Materials add a depth and richness to the screen.
- With the new Split-Shot Ammo, players can fork bullets and shoot around corners.
- Equipping new unlockable Motion Trails allow players to show off personality in the arena.
“When I first saw Nintendo Switch, I knew it was the perfect home for Inversus!” said Hypersect’s Ryan Juckett. “The controls map directly onto a single Joy-Con for playing with friends, while the quick game sessions are great for playing on the go.”
If you’re an owner of Inversus for the PC or PS4, don’t worry, the “Deluxe” update will be available as a free download.
PAX East 2017 will open its doors in exactly 336 hours, and the Indie Megabooth has finally announced which games it’ll have on display at the Boston-based convention this year.
Dozens upon dozens of indie titles will get a chance to shine in a couple of weeks, including some of our favorites from years past. We selected Vertex Pop’s Graceful Explosion Machine, Hypersect’s Inversus, and Pocketwatch’s Tooth & Tail for our Best of PAX East 2016 roundup and all of them will be on display in the Indie Megabooth this year. Refactor, an alumnus of our Best of PAX East 2014 roundup (when it was known as Tetropolis) has also earned a spot in the PAX East 2017 edition of the Indie Megabooth.
The Indie Megabooth continues to grow and change, and this year, in addition to the Minibooth area and the Tabletop area, it’ll also have a “Visual Novel Reading Room” within its carpeted confines for PAX East attendees.
You can find the full list of games set to be included in the Indie Megabooth at PAX East 2017 after the break. (more…)
Hypersect has announced plans to bring their monochromatic shooter, Inversus, to the Xbox One later this year.
In addition to launching the game on a new platform, the developer also announced that an updated version of Inversus with new Maps, Levels, and AI Bots will soon be available for the PC and PS4:
New Features Planned For Inversus 1.5
- Compete on 12 New Maps in Versus Mode.
- Master 3 New Levels in Arcade Mode.
- Collect New Split-Shot Ammo that can fork into multiple bullets.
- Sharpen your skills against the community’s most requested feature against AI Controlled Bots in Versus Mode.
“Supporting Inversus with regular updates has been a great experience and I really wanted to do something special for the 1.5 Edition.” said Hypersect’s Ryan Juckett. “I think the new Versus Mode Bots are where the value really shines. They are great for training against and add yet another local game mode for solo players to enjoy while in queue for matchmaking.”
A new trailer for Inversus’s upcoming update has been embedded above.
A lot of games are described as “minimalist,” but Hypersect took it to new heights when they limited Inversus to just three colors… black, white, and red. But thanks to the latest update, the game is about to get much more colorful.
Now available through Steam (and coming to the PS4 soon), the 1.2 update adds 45 new color palettes to the game (including one inspired by the Game Boy’s pea green screen), along with a few other changes:
- Inversus isn’t just black and white anymore. 45 unlockable color palettes are now in game! Choose the ones you like and the game will randomly shuffle between them every match.
- Online gameplay gets more social with over 250 unlockable emotes! Equip up to four at a time and express your joy or disappointment between rounds.
- Experience levels are tracked for arcade and versus mode. Level up by completing matches, winning games online and earning high scores. Your level is advertised in online lobbies and each level gained guarantees an unlocked emote or color after that match (unlocks are otherwise randomly awarded per match).
- New leaderboards for versus levels, arcade level, and number of games won online.
- Improved public matchmaking allows solo players to search across all game modes at the same time!
You can get an eyeful of the Inversus’s colorful new look in the trailer embedded above.
There’s a nice mix of new games available to download from the PlayStation Store this week. So let’s get right too it…
Inversus is a minimalist overhead shooter for the PS4 that ties your path of movement and attack to a black-and-white grid. Single-player and multiplayer options (both local and online) will give players plenty of opportunities for competition.
Also available this week is Grow Up, a PS4 platformer from Ubisoft that stars BUD, “an adorable yet clumsy, stumbling, tumbling robot.” And speaking of Ubisoft, the publisher will also bring a new version of Uno, everyone’s favorite card game, to the PS4 this week.
Finally this week, Codemasters is giving the green light to their latest open wheel racing simulator, F1 2016. It’ll be available for the PS4 on Friday, August 19.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
