It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for your midweek Xbox Games Store update.
Four new Xbox One games were added to the digital storefront today, including Capcom’s Mega Man Legacy Collection 2. Packaging together Mega Man 7, 8, 9, and 10 into a single bundle, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 also includes a Challenge Mode with remixed stages, an Armor Mode for easier play, and a Museum Mode with concept art and audio tracks.
Also available to download today is Batman: The Enemy Within, Telltale’s latest adventure starring the Caped Crusader. Players will once again be able to play as Batman and Bruce Wayne, and they’ll go up against the The Riddler and an emergent Joker in Episode 1: The Enigma.
Elsewhere on the Xbox Games Store today is Sine Mora EX, an enhanced re-release of the Grasshopper Manufacture’s bizarre side-scrolling shooter; and Blackhole: Complete Edition, a survival platformer from FiolaSoft Studio.
You can learn more about all of these games after the break. (more…)
PS Store This Week: Hellblade, Telltale’s Batman The Enemy Within, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, more
Big-budget retail releases may have dried up for the Summer, but there’s a ton of new titles to download this week on the PlayStation Store…
First up is Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, an “Indie AAA” from Ninja Theory. The team behind DMC: Devil May Cry and Heavenly Sword is back with a new third-action game for the PS4 about “a warrior’s brutal journey into myth and madness.” The developer worked alongside neuroscientists to accurately portray the mental state of the protagonist and added a unique bit of quasi-permadeath to Hellblade’s save system.
Also available to download this week is the first episode of Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Within. The Riddler is terrorizing Gotham City in the PS4 sequel, and Batman also has to deal with an appearance by Amanda Waller and the emergence of The Joker. And speaking of return appearances, Cliff Bleszinski returns to game development with LawBreakers, a new hero shooter for the PS4.
Finally this week, a trio of side-scrolling shooters will make the PlayStation Store a retro-tastic place to shop. Capcom has compiled Mega Man 7, 8, 9, and 10 on the PS4 in the Mega Man Legacy Collection 2. Vertex Pop will also release their colorful space shooter, Graceful Explosion Machine, on the PS4. And the bizarre Sine Mora EX has been remastered for the PS4 by THQ Nordic.
You can learn more about all of these titles (and a few others) after the break. (more…)
Two new games will be available on store shelves this week…
First up, Capcom will bring Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 to the PS4 and Xbox One. This second compilation of Mega Man’s classic adventure includes the forgotten Mega Man 7, the bizarre Mega Man 8, and the back-to-basics Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10. A Challenge Mode and a new batch of Achievements/Trophies will also be included.
Also available this week is Sine Mora EX, a side-scrolling shooter for the PS4 and Xbox One. Originally released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 in 2012, Sine Mora EX adds two-player cooperative play and three new competitive multiplayer modes.
We’ll be back later this week with a look at all the new additions to the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, and Nintendo eShop.
THQ Nordic has announced plans to bring seven games to this year’s PAX East convention, including a newly-announced re-release of De Blob. The ultra-colorful puzzle platformer originally debuted on the Wii in 2008, and it’ll get a second life on the PC (via Steam) this Spring after its available to download on April 27.
Joining De Blob in THQ Nordic’s booth (#20037) will be Sine Mora EX, an enhanced re-release of the horizontally-scrolling shooter. Set to be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One this Summer, THQ Nordic will bring a special High Score Challenge demo to PAX East for fans to try out. If you’re in Boston for the big show, the publisher will also be demoing a trio of RPGs on the show floor… the post-apocalyptic ELEX, the retro-inspired Battle Chasers: Nightwar, and RTS/RPG hybrid SpellForce 3.
Finally, THQ Nordic will have Weappy Studio’s This is the Police and the RTS Lock’s Quest on display.
PAX East is scheduled to begin on March 10, and you can learn more about the games that THQ Nordic is bringing to the show after the break. (more…)
Sine Mora shoots its way to PSN soon
Sine Mora, the gorgeous dieselpunk shoot ’em up, is making its to the PlayStation Network. Created by Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture, the game was released on Xbox Live Arcade to much fanfare. At E3, they showed off Sine Mora on the Vita, and announced it will be releasing for the new handheld soon.
Balazs Horvath, director of publishing at Digital Reality, said, “After having an extremely successful launch on Xbox Live Arcade and revealing the Vita version at E3 to much appraise, we’re as excited as ever to bring the experience to yet another platform. More important than anything, we created something we love, and we know Sine Mora be loved yet again on PlayStation 3.”
Packed with tons of characters, color, and even the ability to control time, scored by Akira Yamaoka, and with animation set pieces by Mahiro Maeda, this game packs a lot of punch. Check out the official website for more details.
Even though it was published by Microsoft on the Xbox Live Arcade, Sine Mora, the steampunk shooter collaboratively developed by Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture, will be coming to the PS Vita soon.
“When you’ve got a great game on your hands, there’s nothing you want to do more than share it with everyone,” said Balázs Horváth, director of publishing at Digital Reality. “We had a fantastic launch with Microsoft exclusively on Xbox LIVE Arcade, and we’re really excited to continue that on the Vita.”
In addition to the portability factor, the Vita version will receive an exclusive character: Wilhelmine Muller from G.rev’s Under Defeat. This crossover character will bring a unique special weapon and new chronomes to Sine Mora.
The side-scrolling shooter’s Vita debut wasn’t given a release date, Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture are confident that it’ll appear on the handheld “soon.”
Sine Mora is the product of a very unlikely union: Hungarian developer Digital Reality and the Suda 51-led Grasshopper Manufacture. Digital Reality is best known as the developers of several obscure strategy games for the PC while Grasshopper has made a name for itself by fitting more crazy into a game than any developer working today. With all that working against them, their partnership has resulted in an absolutely excellent game. (more…)
Wednesday is here and Microsoft has updated the Xbox Live Arcade with two new titles today.
The first is a side-scrolling, steampunk, shoot ’em up from Suda 51 titled Sine Mora. It’s available to download for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15):
Sine Mora is a horizontal shoot’em up that provides a unique take on challenge, where time is the ultimate factor. Mixing classic shooter sensibilities with contemporary presentation, SINE MORA is a gorgeous shmup that offers a Story Mode that weaves an over-the-top tale and an Arcade Mode that provides deep, satisfying gameplay to challenge fans of the genre. With many ways to manipulate time, Sine Mora features over 60 weapon combinations to complete each beautifully-crafted stage that form fits to the player’s skills with scaling difficulty. Soundtrack composed by Akira Yamaoka and featuring boss designs by Mahiro Maeda.
