There are now 30 characters in Mario Tennis Aces on Nintendo Switch, each with their own signature Special Shot.
16 characters were available at launch, and 14 characters were made available later on in the game. Special Shots are activated with the L button once your gauge is fully charged. I particularly enjoyed discovering these new ultra moves.
Tunic’s new gameplay trailer was showcased at Microsoft’s 2018 E3 conference. To sum it up: it’s a visually stunning, cute, isometric action-adventure game – strongly influenced by the early Zelda games. Just in case you hadn’t noticed…
Tunic And The Sword-Wielding Fox
Tunic was originally announced as Secret Legend in 2015 and was created by Andrew Shouldice, a Canadian solo developer.
The title will be an Xbox ‘launch exclusive’ but it’s coming to PC as well. The release date is unknown (as of yet).
Created by SpaceCan, an indie Chinese developer, Juicy Realm is out now on Steam for $9.99, £7.19, or €9.99. The title will also be coming to the PS4 and Switch this August.
Square Off Against Bizarre Fruits
In the world of Juicy Realm, the line between animals and plants is blurred to the extreme. Plants have gained sentience – and limbs – and are now fighting humanity to the top of the food chain:
The game features top-down presentation, randomly-generated maps, different weapons to master, and a “host” of Easter eggs to discover. You can also play it solo, or players can team up with friends in a cooperative local multiplayer mode.
Cool title aside, [amazon_textlink asin=’B07895V82W’ text=’Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’geali01-21′ marketplace=’UK’ link_id=’bd3b463e-4cb5-11e8-9654-b7e76999e5c3′], a new interactive fiction title for the PS Vita, is out this summer.
Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly
Described as “hauntingly beautiful”, it’s a love story from Otomate (Idea Factory) and is the first in a trio of otome (or interactive fiction) titles.
Each of the titles includes an oversized 3” x 4.5” collectable character card set inside the game case:
Here’s the story:
In Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly, a girl wakes up in a mysterious mansion with no memory of how she got there. Adding to her confusion, she can no longer remember her name or past. Before she can come to grips with her predicament, she is attacked by a grotesque monster and is forced to run for her life.
It’s up to you to follow the black butterflies – the choices you make unlock different story paths in the game:
Each of the three ‘Summer of Mystery’ games features “suspenseful” storylines. What’s more, if you buy all three of the titles, you’ll get a set of exclusive collector pins. You don’t need them? Come on, like me, you know you do…
