All Articles: Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas

Injustice 2, Chroma Squad, The Surge, more added to PS Store

The heroes and villains of the DC Universe collide once more in Injustice 2, which is now available to download for the PS4. Developed by NetherRealm Studios, the sequel introduces a new antagonist (the planet collector Brainiac) and a customizable Gear System.

Also available to download for the PS4 this week (on Friday) is Chroma Squad, a strategy RPG heavily inspired by the Power Rangers franchise, and The Surge, a new Souls-like action RPG from Focus Home Interactive and Deck 13.

As usual, a smattering of other games were also added to the PlayStation Store including Akiba’s Beat (PS4 and Vita), an action RPG from Acquire; Shadow Warrior 2 (PS4), a goofy FPS sequel from Flying Wild Hog; Farpoint (PS4), a PlayStation VR-powered shooter from Sony; and Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas (Vita), an overhead action RPG that is rather reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda.

You can learn more about all of these games (and a few other new releases) after the break. (more…)

Monster Boy announced for Nintendo Switch; Oceanhorn likely in development as well

Monster Boy, a spiritual successor to the 80s-era platformer Wonder Boy, is currently in development for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One at FDG Entertainment. Today, the developer tweeted that the game will also be available for the Nintendo Switch.

This is likely the second game that FDG has in development for the Switch, as they previously confirmed in a press release that Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas will soon launch for “a Nintendo console.” That’s a curiously vague way to put it if you’re talking about the Wii U, but it’s appropriately secretive if they were referring to Nintendo’s (then unannounced) Switch console.

We’ve learned a lot about the Nintendo Switch’s potential games lineup since its reveal last week, and it’s nice to have two new titles to add to the next update to The Big List of Nintendo Switch Games.

Space… The Final Frontier… These are the Voyages of the Xbox Games Store Update…

Star Trek Online warps onto the Xbox One today, and the free-to-play MMO will include “over 125 episodes through multiple story arcs, featuring content in both space and ground.” And like any good Captain, players will also be able to “explore strange new worlds and seek out new life and new civilizations.”

Also available for the Xbox One today is Awesomenauts Assemble!, a side-scrolling Action Platformer/MOBA from Romino Games. Players can compete in 3v3 battles both online and locally as they “bring together the most elite mercenaries from across the universe to do battle!”

Finally this week, Xbox One owners will get the chance to take a trip back in time to experience the action RPG stylings of Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas. Set within the “ancient kingdom of Arcadia,” players will “fight monsters, learn to use magic, and discover ancient treasures” in order to complete their quest.

More information on all three of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)

Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, Just Sing, Star Trek Online, more added to PS Store

This week’s PlayStation Store update will take players into the unknown with a handful of new titles.

First up is The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, a JRPG from XSEED Games. Developed by Falcom, players will return to the kingdom of Erebonia and attempt to save it from civil war on the PS3 and PS Vita.

Also available this week is a pair of free-to-play games for the PS4 that are out of this world… literally. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the franchise, Star Trek Online will let players sit in the Captain’s Chair and experience more than 125 episodes as they “explore strange new worlds and seek out new life and new civilizations.” Meanwhile, The Tomorrow Children from Q-Games drops players in a world where “mankind is on the verge of extinction, and you must cooperate with other players to build your town and defend it from monstrous invaders.”

Finally this week, Ubisoft will launch Just Sing, their karaoke spinoff of the Just Dance franchise, for the PS4. If you just need to sing, now’s your chance.

More information on all of these games 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…)
