Hamster has announced that the next title coming to the Arcade Archives series is Phelios, a vertical scrolling shooter arcade game originally released by Namco back in 1989. The game will be released on Nintendo Switch on February 2nd, 2023, priced at $7.99.

About the game (via Wikipedia):

The player takes control of Apollo, who is mounted upon the back of his winged horse Pegasus; pressing the firing button makes his sword fire a tiny shot, while holding it down charges the sword up, and upon releasing the button the sword shoots a bigger fireball. Even the smallest enemies take multiple hits, so the standard shot is of little use - and each of the game’s seven stages is divided into between two and four sections (the transition from one to another is indicated by a block of Japanese text appearing at the bottom of the screen and a change in music). At the end of every stage, Apollo must also defeat a boss character from Greek myth: Medusa, the Graeae, the Siren, Antaeus, Scylla (who has taken on the form of the “Crystal Brain” from the aforementioned Bakutotsu Kijūtei), Cerberus, and Typhon himself; once he has done so, he will proceed to the enchanted mirror at the back of the boss character temple, before the game segues into the next stage. Apollo can take up to four hits before dying (indicated by the “playing-cards” hearts at the bottom of the screen, and determined by how the cabinet is set), but will die instantly if he flies into a wall or touches a boss’s head - and this game also features voice samples (in Japanese for the original arcade and Japanese Mega Drive versions, but in English for the North American Genesis and European Mega Drive versions). And if the “rank select” option in the arcade version’s option menu has been set to “on”, players will also be able to select an “easy” or “hard” game mode, once they have inserted their coin; however, the “easy” mode only features the first four stages and does not feature the game’s complete ending sequence as a result of it.

You can take a look at a gameplay video for the arcade version of the game below.

Grim Guardians: Demon Purge is the latest game by Inti Creates, which is coming on February 23rd of this year. While the game was announced in August of last year, Inti Creates has been sharing quite a few updates and overviews on many aspects and characters of the game. This time, we learned about Rion Harusame and Saki Takeda, who are voiced by Kurea Fujie and Momo Higuchi in the Japanese version, respectively. Check out the full details of each character below (via Perfectly-Nintendo)

Rion Harusame is a member of the Theatre Club who made a name for herself as a delinquent in middle school. But this is a thing of the past (supposedly): she has fallen in love with acting, and she claims to be the gentlest person in her club. However, her using Anita Bellman, her classmate, as a gofer makes it hard to believe she’s really turned a new leaf.

Saki Takada is the super positive mood maker of the basketball club. She often adds “right?” at the end of her sentences, which is why underclassmen call her “Right-senpai”. It’s such a common occurence that even second and third year students have taken to call her that.

Along with that, another round of gameplay has been shared by the team at Inti Creates. You can watch their live-stream presentation below.
