Explore a beautiful, vast and ruined world riddled with dangers and lost technologies.

Echoes of a dark and violent past resonate throughout a savage land, steeped in treasure and blood. Hyper Light Drifter is an action adventure RPG in the vein of the best 16¬bit classics, with modernized mechanics and designs on a much grander scale.

Drifters of this world are the collectors of forgotten knowledge, lost technologies and broken histories. Our Drifter is haunted by an insatiable illness, traveling further into the lands of Buried Time, hoping to discover a way to quiet the vicious disease.

• From each character to subtle background elements, everything is lovingly hand-animated.
• Easy to pick up, difficult to master; enemies are vicious and numerous, hazards will easily crush your frail body, and friendly faces remain rare.
• Upgrade weapons, learn new skills, discover equipment and traverse a dark, detailed world with branching paths and secrets abound.

New Nintendo NX Details Emerge?

nx-is-a-portable-console-with-detachable-controllers-146954516457

As we patiently wait for news regarding the Nintendo NX, the good people over at Eurogamer seem to have uncovered more details regarding the highly anticipated system. Keep in mind, this news should be taken with a grain of salt as we have yet to hear anything official from the big N themselves…. Anyway, here is what the internet outlet is reporting:

Nintendo’s upcoming NX will be a portable, handheld console with detachable controllers, a number of sources have confirmed to Eurogamer.

On the move, NX will function as a high-powered handheld console with its own display. So far so normal – but here’s the twist: we’ve heard the screen is bookended by two controller sections on either side, which can be attached or detached as required.

The website goes on to report that the system will also feature Nvidia’s powerful Tegra mobile processor and that the NX will use game cartridges as its choice of physical media.

Only time will tell if this rumor pans out to be true. I was under the impression that the NX was more of a “platform” concept and will feature a handheld component AND a home console. The two would work in tandem however would NOT be a hybrid system. What do you guys think?

I AM SETSUNA – LAUNCH TRAILER

I had no idea what I am Setsuna was until I watched this launch trailer… Let me say, this game has immediately caught my attention. I am Setsuna is obviously taking a nod at JRPG’s of old and reminds me of the classic Chrono Trigger title for SNES. I Am Setsuna, the first game from Tokyo RPG Studio is apparently AVAILABLE NOW on Playstation 4!

I Am Setsuna is an adventure which evokes feeling of nostalgia; traverse a world map, enter towns and speak to inhabitants to discover more about the world and your quest, battle enemies in turn-based combat all set to a powerful piano-based score and relive the authentic old-school JRPG experience.

Nifty stuff Square….
