Nintendo Download: Monster Hunter Stories, Rayman Legends, Double Dragon IV, more

It’s another big week for acclaimed (and not-to-acclaimed) indie games to find a new home on the Switch, but another big 3DS game will also launch this Friday.

Capcom is shrinking the Monster Hunter franchise down once again in Monster Hunter Stories… but this time there’s a twist. The latest entry in the popular monster-hunting series will also feature an RPG-style story and a ton of brand new characters that are ready to ride into danger.

But back to the Switch. On Tuesday, Ubisoft will bring Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition to the console/handheld hybrid, giving fans another chance to take the well-received platformer on the road. But several indie developers will make their Switch debut this week, including retro-styled brawler Double Dragon IV and monochromatic puzzle platformer The Bridge.

Nintendo Download: The Bridge, LBX Little Battlers Experience, 3D Gunstar Heroes, more


It’s a big day for the Nintendo eShop as the publisher’s tiniest new heroes will make their digital debut.

LBX: Little Battlers Experience, a 3DS game developed by Level-5, follows a group of kids who pit “customizable palm-sized robots” against each other in a small-scale war. The 3DS is now also home to 3D Gunstar Heroes, a 3D-enabled version of Treasure’s famed side-scrolling shooter.

If you’d prefer to do your gaming on the Wii U, a number of new titles were released for Nintendo’s living room console today including The Bridge, a puzzle platformer inspired by M.C. Escher; Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, a Virtual Console re-release of the strategy favorite; and Woah Dave!, a crazy platformer from the makers of the Bit.Trip series.

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

Zombi, Volume, The Bridge, Resident Evil Revelations 2 Vita, more added to PS Store


Zombies are overtaking the PlayStation Store! It’s unlikely this is a stealth tie-in with the premiere of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, but three new Zed-themed games are now available through the online storefront:

  • Zombi was one of the Wii U’s most-acclaimed launch titles in 2012 (where it was known as ZombiU) and its now available on the PS4 thanks to Ubisoft. Inventory management with the Wii U GamePad is obviously a thing of the past, but Ubisoft still won’t let players pause the action when they’re rummaging around in their ruck sacks.
  • Curses N Chaos is also available for the PS4 (and the Vita as a Cross-Buy title), but its quite a different type of zombie game. As a side-scrolling arena fighter, players are forced to battle it out with all manner of ghouls (including the walking undead) as an evil Wizard King cackles over his evilness.
  • Finally, Resident Evil Revelations 2 makes the jump to the Vita by giving up its episodic release schedule. The game’s structure still includes distinct chapters, but players will have to pay for the whole thing up front if they want to partake in the further adventures of Claire Redfield.

Also available this week is Volume (PS4), Mike Bithell’s stealthy follow-up to Thomas Was Alone; The Bridge (PS4/PS3/Vita Cross-Buy), a side-scrolling puzzle platformer inspired by M.C. Escher; and Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library & The Monster Seal, a first-person turn-based RPG for the Vita. And if you’re into episodic gaming, Telltale’s Tales From the Borderlands: Escape Plan Bravo brings the series closer to its conclusion on the PS3 and PS4.

More information on all of these games (and a few others) can be found after the break. And a complete list of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

“M.C. Escher meets Isaac Newton” is how developer The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild describes their puzzle platformer The Bridge.

Now, its available for the Xbox One (through the Xbox Games Store) and its sure to please fans of puzzle platformers everywhere.

Also available today is Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings, a comical baseball sim that actually offers “a deep baseball simulation with accurate physics and comprehensive statistics tracking.”

Finally, Commander Cherry’s Puzzled Journey is a Kinect-powered puzzle platformer that asks players to contort their bodies to create platforms for the titular Commander Cherry.

More information about all of these games is available after the break. (more…)
