High Strangeness is an indie game funded from Kickstarter, inspired by retro 8-bit and 16-bit games, where you can switch between the two in a “12-bit” hybrid to solve puzzles to help Boyd save the Multiverse. Although we had thought it was to be released on May 16th, it has in fact been released today in North America in the Nintendo eShop at $9.99. A video game that actually released earlier than its scheduled date! If you fancy a bit of a nostalgia trip but in a fresh, new game then take a look at the eShop and treat yourself to High Strangeness.
After the much loved Attack on Titan manga and anime series, the game was released in Japan and is now coming to North America. You can find Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains in the Nintendo 3DS eShop on May 12th. Also, anyone who buys the game will receive a free Attack on Titan Nintendo 3DS Home theme! Unfortunately, Europe still has a delay and an unknown release date as they bumped into some copyright issues, so the game will be known as the Japanese title of ‘Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains’ there. You can see some characters that will feature in the game in the video above, and check out the first 45 minute of gameplay to see if you fancy it. Will you be saving the date and buying this game?
After months of waiting we have finally got a release date for the promising Mighty No.9. The 2D shooter will be coming to the United States on September 15th and in Europe on September 18th. You will be able to purchase the game either physically or digitally, the choice is yours. If English isn’t your native language then you will be pleased to know that Comcept has announced that there will be Japanese and French voiceovers. The company has also revealed that the DLC for Mighty No.9 will feature a new stage and will also unlock Ray. If you buy the game physically you will get the DLC and Kickstarter backers will get it for free. The Nintendo 3DS version will be released at a later date.
