Idea Factory International will release the Switch version of Azur Lane: Crosswave in North America and Europe in 2021, the publisher announced.

The 3D shooting game, based on the popular mobile game, first launched for PlayStation 4 in August 2019 in Japan, followed by PlayStation 4 in the west and PC via Steam worldwide in February 2020, and Switch on September 17 in Japan.

The Switch version also adds the following content:

  • Taihou and Formidable as playable characters (previously downloadable content for PS4 and PC versions)
  • Each character comes with three support characters and additional story content.
  • An updated Photo Mode where players can now choose up to six characters instead of three, with extended camera angles.

Here is an overview of the game, via Idea Factory International:

About Azur Lane: Crosswave

Taking place in a world where personified battleships from across the globe duke it out, Azur Lane: Crosswave takes the spirit of the mobile game and uses the Unreal Engine to bring its characters to life in a massive 3D world, so fans can see them like they’ve never seen them before. The in-game character designs will also feature cel-shaded anime style 3D graphics that stay true to the original art.

About Azur Lane

Azur Lane is a side-scrolling shooter created by Shanghai Manjuu and Xiamen Yongshi, originally released in 2017 for iOS and Android platforms. The Shanghai-based publisher, Yostar, published the Japanese and English version of the mobile game, popularizing the game to more mobile users across the world. The game takes place in a world where personified battleships from around the globe engage in side-scrolling shooter gameplay.

Story

Enter the four nations: Eagle Union, Royal Navy, Iron Blood, and Sakura Empire. The military of each nation marched towards yet another season of diligent training. Suddenly, in the middle of their normal routines, a Joint Military Exercise was enacted. In this monumental event, a select few from each nation were chosen, causing all of them to train even harder in anticipation of rigourous battles ahead. But how did this event come to exactly? Are there ulterior motives at play?

Key Features

  • Retrofitted in 3DAzur Lane mobile, the beloved side-scrolling shooter, is now retrofitted for the Steam as a cel-shaded, 3D action shooter with the help of Unreal Engine! Choose from 25-plus characters and 30-plus support characters to help lead your fleet to victory. Azur Lane: Crosswave also introduces two brand-new playable characters, Shimakaze and Suruga!
  • Four Modes to Choose From – Choose from four different modes: Story, Extreme Battle, Photo, or Episode Mode. Story Mode goes through 7 riveting chapters in the footsteps of newcomers, Shimakaze and Suruga. In Extreme Battle Mode, choose from 100-plus challenging fleets to battle for rare items and special materials. In Photo Mode, you can pose characters, change facial expressions, alter backgrounds, and camera angles to create a picturesque moment. Episode Mode includes 50-plus sub-stories that deliver bonus character backgrounds!
  • Arm Your Armada – Before setting sail, beef up your characters by equipping them with rare items found after a successful battle or by crafting items at Akashi’s Laboratory. Here, Commanders can exchange blueprints to create new gear, convert materials into rare items, and earn rewards. Experiment with different fleet arrangements to gain special Fleet Effects that can provide in-game stat bonuses.
  • Ready, Aim, Fire – In Azur Lane: Crosswave, you can now control, aim, and fire at incoming battleships, aircraft carriers, and other enemies. Depending on the character’s subtype, players can dash to evade attacks or activate defensive shields, unleash torpedoes or aircrafts, and switch-on character-specific special attacks to defeat unruly enemies!

Destiny 2: Beyond Light

Bungie has released a new trailer for the Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion highlighting the Jupiter moon Europa.

Here is an overview of the Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion, via Bungie:

About

A new power is born out of the ancient Pyramid ship above Europa, and a dark empire has risen beneath. In the Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion, Guardians will explore a changed universe, with a new destination, new adventures, and even new powers to explore.

Key Features

  • Explore Europa: In Beyond Light, Guardians will be called to a new destination: Jupiter’s frozen moon of Europa. Brave the unrelenting glacial frontier, infiltrate the Golden Age Braytech facility, and uncover the secrets that lie deep under the ancient ice.
  • Wield the Darkness: As a new threat emerges, so too does a mysterious new power–Stasis. Rooted in Darkness, Guardians will wield this new elemental power alongside Arc, Solar, and Void to summon epic supers and control the battlefield. Titans, Warlocks and Hunters will each use Stasis in a different way.
  • A New Raid: Below the frozen tundra of Europa lies the Deep Stone Crypt. For decades it has remained dormant. Guardians will test their skill and teamwork in this brand new six-person raid, where glorious rewards await.
  • The Rise of Eramis: The splintered houses of the Fallen have rallied and built their new empire on Europa, united under the banner of the Fallen Kell of Darkness, Eramis. Abandoned by the Traveler and left by the Light, Eramis is on her own journey into the Darkness, and towards a collision course with Guardians.

The Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion will launch on November 10. Destiny 2 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam, and Stadia. It is also coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series platforms.

Meet the symbol of hope.

GigaBash

Passion Republic Games has released a new trailer for multiplayer monster brawler GigaBash introducing new playable character Gigaman.

Here is an overview of the game and character, via Passion Republic Games:

About the Game

GigaBash is a four-player arena brawler, set in a world filled with giant monsters and heroes. Choose from a colorful cast of characters inspired by classic monster tropes, each possessing their own unique skillset and abilities. Pit against your friends in a destructible arena in a battle for dominance. The game emphasizes accessibility and pure fun, seeking to unite players on the couch for a casual bash or a competitive brawl. These design choices have led them to win the Indie Prize Award from Dengeki and several other Indie Prize nominations such as 4Gamer and Famitsu. Their success in LevelUp KL 2019, the biggest game festival in Malaysia, has also secured them the Grand Jury Award, Audience Choice Award, Best Game Design Award, and Best Technology Award. While the game is still in development, their efforts have garnered the hearts and support of the local gaming community.

About Gigaman

Gigaman, the former symbol of hope for humanity’s stand against the growing cases of Kaiju invasions. After a long hiatus, the world calls for this steadfast hero to return once again, bringing along a bit of… extra weight from his early retirement.

Gigaman’s flashy abilities derived from his extravagant personality. Even though he gained some weight since his last appearance, he still retains most of his agility, allowing him to pull off the many acrobatic skills he developed in his prime. These include cartwheels, flying kicks, dive kicks, somersaults, and tornado kicks. As a veteran in kaiju fighting, he has learned to control his powers to avoid collateral damage, making him deal reduced damage to the buildings around him. Although this may be seen as his weakness, his heroic nature allows him to tap into the power of the ‘Titan Spirit’ living within him. This unlocks his ability to use Giga Energy-based attacks such as his iconic Giga Beam and many more. Return him to his prime by transforming to his S-class form and watch the monsters turn to fear as the forgotten hero makes his comeback.

Gigaman is ideal for players looking for a high mobility type, fast-paced, combo-oriented character. His core mechanics require mastery in spacing and precise timing in each attack. In the right hands, Gigaman can overwhelm his foes in an unending string of air juggles and combos, perfect for players who prefer to beat their opponents with style points.

GigaBash is in development for PlayStation 4 and PC.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

About

The Sealed Ampoule is a “dungeon agriculturalization roguelike” game. As the genre shows, the game offers both the roguelike and the farming.

The game is developed by Cavyhouse, the developer of Forget Me Not: My Organic Garden and The Midnight Sanctuary.

Bonanza Crop of Items! Mass Generation of Magic Circles!

By leveling up the dungeon, it will produce useful items more effectively.

Items will make the character strong, then the strong character can dive deep into the dungeon.

The goal is to master the agriculturalization of the dungeon.

The game system itself is mainly leveling up the character and the dungeon in very steadily way.

Contrary to that rather humble system, the art style of the game is gorgeous in mineral glaze.

This glorious and mysterious world is embroidered with the alchemy and Wunderkammer motif.

The player controls the protagonist Irene Morgan, the novice alchemist and explores her own newly bought used dungeon.

While she maintains her own dungeon, she encounters the strangest murder case ever which she ends up investigating it.

Look for the Truth Behind the Stigmatized Dungeon Murder Case

The base system is the repetition of: Explore the dungeon > harvest the items > Go back home and prepare > Explore the dungeon.

During the preparation phase, you can grow the dungeon or acquire new skills for Irene.

With this, you can dive deeper into the dungeon, and fight against tough bosses.

Dungeon Agriculturalization

There are two types of levels for each dungeon floor; Farm level and Magic level.

Increasing the farm level will increase the number of available items; increasing the magic level will increase the number of useful magic circles.

Ultimately, if you manage to maximize both level for the floor, you can agricultuarize it.

That floor becomes a paradise which gives a big amount of items without any enemies.

Various Skills

There are over one hundred types of skills; Attack, Heal, Enchant, Item management, etc.

Each user can have their own play style based on the variation of skills.

Prepare well, then explore the dungeon, then level up both the character and the dungeon…

Have fun with the new roguelike exploration game!

Story

There once was a novice alchemist whose name is Irene.

She recently lost her beloved mother, and to overcome the sadness, she was trying to start the business and have her own store.

One day, she found the cheap used dungeon in the alchemist’s online shop “Merkuri” and purchased it.

However, there always is a reason being cheap…

The dungeon was full of strange enemies, and Irene had to defeat them before getting any item for her alchemy.

Moreover, when she reached the deeper floor in exhaustion, she met a doll-like twins and a strange dead body of a strange man.

Here, Irene’s Stigmatized Dungeon Murder Case has begun…

This happened 10 years before the story of Forget Me Not: My Organic Garden.

The two stories are separate, so knowing the previous game is not necessary.

However there are some characters appearing in both titles which will give you more insight for this interesting world.

Orangeblood

Orangeblood will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch on October 1 for $19.99 / €19.99, publisher Playism and developer Grayfax Software announced.

Orangeblood first launched for PC via Steam and Playism on January 14.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

199X, New Koza

It’s the end of the 20th century, on a historic timeline different from that which we know. A man-made island off the coast of Okinawa is humming with a dirty, exotic vibe—and it’s awesome!

Rust and faded concrete glisten in the morning sun and the late-night neon, showing off the various faces of the island.

Amazing Soundtrack

Let yourself go to the subtropical sun, the sound of the waves, and the scent of dank weed, and let some real deep cuts and unknown classics of 1990s hiphop take you away. It doesn’t matter whether you’re chilling on a couch on a rooftop, having a drink at the bar, or capping fools in a firefight in some sketchy alleyway—these dope-ass tracks are gonna get you moving!

Four “Kawaii” Soldiers

Hey you! Do you like hardcore adventures where you take on the role of an even harder-core badass tasked with beating the crap out of a bunch of demons? Well, so do I, but sometimes it’s fun to try out something a little different, you know?

These four cute Asian girls couldn’t care less about little photo stickers… They’d rather play with some 7.62x39mm rifles and filthy, filthy cash!

Simple-Yet-Deep Turn-Based Gunfighting

Use simple controls to take down evil gang members and killer robots! In New Koza, you can purchase randomly-generated and extremely powerful guns, 24/7.
Load up a shotgun so powerful you’d burn yourself to toast if the gas leaked and some brand-new fireproof sneakers, find a group of psychotic yakuza thugs, and personally deliver a handwritten invitation to BEATDOWN TOWN!

There’s a Dog, Too!

Ruff!

Bright Memory

The original Bright Memory will release for Xbox Series platforms on November 10, publisher Playism and developer FYQD-Studio announced. This is not to be confused with Bright Memory: Infinite, which was previously announced to be coming to the platform.

Bright Memory is currently available for PC via Steam.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

About

Bright Memory is a lightning-fast fusion of the FPS and action genres, created by one-man development studio FYQD using Unreal Engine. Combine a wide variety of skills and abilities to unleash dazzling combo attacks. SRO (Supernatural Science Research Organization) agent Shelia’s adventure is about to begin.

This game depicts the maiden adventure of a woman named Shelia in the year 2020.

The 1000-year-old relic swords known as “Kanshou and Bakuya”, discovered through SRO research, have been found to comprise a unique multilayered structure, containing a mysterious substance in their cores. This substance, known as the “Soul of Jiu Xuan”, possesses the ability to reanimate the dead. In an attempt to take possession of the substance, the “SAI”—a massive terrorist organization controlling its own army—has used a cutting-edge piece of technology known as a “Quantum Transporter” to infiltrate the SRO research facility and steal top-secret and incredibly dangerous data. To make matters worse, while attempting to calibrate coordinates on the Quantum Transporter, Shelia mistakenly activates the device, immediately transporting everyone in the vicinity to the Floating Island—an airborne continent near the North Pole, undisturbed in its slumber for over 1000 years. It is soon discovered that the various beasts and corpses of those who once populated the island have been reanimated by the “Soul of Jiu Xuan”, and they’re coming for Shelia…

Key Features

  • Rack up points and enhance your various skills to freely create your own original combinations.
  • Employing an FPS-style POV, discover and solve the various puzzles throughout each stage to advance.
  • A mesmerizingly beautiful world combining science fiction and Chinese culture and created using Unreal Engine 4.

Main Characters

  • Shelia: Hannah Grace – The female main character. 21 years old. Her parents were in the military. After losing both parents in a sudden tragic accident at the age of six, she was raised by Professor Richard Carter, founder of the SRO. Having spent years undergoing various types of military training and shining among her peers in virtually every field, her near-superhuman abilities landed her a spot as a member of the ultra-elite “SRO Emergency Inspection Team”.
  • Carter: Jack Merluzzi – Founder of the SAI. Male, 35 years old. Taking advantage of his influential status, he struck it rich by buying and selling vast numbers of ancient artifacts on the black market. After learning of the existence of the “Soul of Jiu Xuan”, he immediately infiltrated the SRO in an attempt to steal top-secret data.

Quantum Error

TeamKill Media will release “cosmic horror” first-person shooter Quantum Error for Xbox Series platforms in addition to its previously announced PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 platforms, the developer announced.

Here is an overview of the game’s story, via its official website:

When the Monad Quantum Research Facility—30 miles off the shore of CA – is attacked by an unknown entity, engulfing the complex in flames and putting it into a full containment lock-down, a distress call is sent for mutual aid to the Garboa Fire Dept in San Francisco, California.

Fire Chief Sturgis answers the call and sends you—Captain Jacob Thomas—your partner Shane Costa and a crew by helicopter to the Monad Facility.

Your mission is simple: save as many lives from the burning complex as possible and get out. However, what starts as a rescue mission quickly plummets into darkness, when you arrive and find that things are not as they appear.

Coming to Epic Games Store later this week.

Freedom Fighters

The PC version of the 2003-released third-person shooter Freedom Fighters is now available Steam and GOG, and will be available via the Epic Games Store later this week, developer IO Interactive announced. It is available at a 33 percent-off launch discount price of $9.99 for the first week of release.

Freedom Fighters first launched for PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, and PC in September 2003. The PC version was previously limited to a physical release.

Here is an overview of the game, via IO Interactive:

Back to 2003

It’s been 17 years since Freedom Fighters was originally released. 17 years…

Today, we’re releasing the game digitally on PC for the first time, and it’s exactly as you remember it from 2003; tactical squad-based gameplay, inter-connected missions across New York and a rebel base to call your own.

We’re excited to finally make the original 2003 game available digitally and have players re-live their favourite moments from the campaign. If you’re completely new to Freedom Fighters, here’s what you need to know:

Freedom Fighters is an intense third-person action game set in an alternate history New York during the invasion of a foreign superpower. You’ll take on the role of Chris Stone, a hard-working plumber, who must rise through the ranks of the resistance to prove himself as a charismatic leader.

Throughout the campaign, you’ll travel to various locations across the city and complete interconnected missions where your actions in one level affect the battles in another. You’ll liberate supplies, scavenge weapons and use the ‘recruit and command’ system to grow the resistance and lead your squad of up to 12 freedom fighters into strategic conflicts. Command a single soldier or your entire squad to scout ahead, defend an area or follow your lead. Be tactical and take the fight to the invaders. They took your freedom. It’s time to take it back.

Bonus Content

We know that Freedom Fighters is a much-loved franchise by many players who enjoyed it all those years ago. We love it too. That’s why we’ve packed in some nostalgic extras for anyone who buys the game.

We’ve teamed up with legendary composer Jesper Kyd, to offer the full Official Freedom Fighters soundtrack. You’ll get 16 tracks from the game in both MP3 and FLAC formats. The soundtrack also includes two bonus tracks that were never included in the game.

We also wanted to honor the experience of buying a game in 2003, so we’ve included the original PC manual as a downloadable PDF. Look out for a few blasts from the past, including tips for closing background applications on Windows 98!
