Jeremy Parish's Game Boy Works #118: In Your Face / Koro Dice retrospective

A portable gaming first—the first-ever handheld basketball game cartridge. Sadly, In Your Face is not precisely the game to lead the charge; it's more of a technical foul than anything else. Happily, the backup entry for this episode, Japan-only puzzler Koro Dice, is a pleasant diversion that makes up for it. Was I complaining about Game Boy puzzlers recently? Sorry, I don't know what I was thinking.

Milestone’s MotoGP20 Adds Junior Team Feature To Career Mode

A new, free feature added

For all our fans that love to play the Career Mode, we have added a brand-new feature, Junior Team.

To create a Junior Team players must be running in the Moto2™ or MotoGP™ class. During the season, new tabs in the Career Hub will introduce the team creation. The rule is simple: you can open teams in classes lower than yours to let them race in the next season. You won’t be just a rider, but also a mentor and a Team Principal for a new generation of young talents!

A team needs a Team Manager, whose skills will influence the ability to attract sponsors and to hire good riders. While the Technical Director, will influence bike development and on track performances during the weekend.

Sponsorship offers will include bikes, sponsor financing and result goals be careful to find the correct balance.

You can hire one or two riders, with their own skill set, and see them grow inside your team.

Speaking about development, you can improve your results investing money to get travel discounts or training your riders or your engineers. This will have different outcomes, but an efficient team must seek perfection in all details.

And after all the planning, all the hopes and the expectations, it comes the race day. The red lights go out and the track will tell its verdict! You can simulate your Junior Team race but it's more fun to follow it live, cheering for your riders, fearing every curve, and finally getting the rewards for your efforts!

MotoGP™20 is globally available on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Windows PC®/STEAM, Google Stadia and Nintendo Switch™.

Bring Pieces of a Broken Earth Back to Peace in Upcoming EDF Game, "EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS”

The world must be defended!

D3PUBLISHER Inc., a leading Japanese games publisher, along with development team YUKE’s, is excited to announce a new third-person shooter “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE” game, “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS.” For the first time ever in the EDF series, “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS” will release on Nintendo Switch™ in addition to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS” will take on a completely different look from the rest of the EDF series with its new voxel art style when it launches in North America and Europe in early 2021 on the Nintendo eShop and the PlayStation®Store, respectively. D3PUBLISHER aims to deliver the ultimate EDF game packed with a ton of content for new and returning EDF fans. The popular third-person shooter series’ exciting debut in a brand-new market creates a fun, new appearance and gameplay experience for both EDF fans and new players alike.

In a parallel universe where everything is in 3D voxel art, a new battlefield has taken stage in the EDF series. Voxel Earth is falling apart into square pieces, breaking its blocky peace, as alien invaders in large motherships have caused a catastrophic rift in their massive attack. With the world in turmoil from an alien attack by enemies from the EDF series, the player and the “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE” must rise to the occasion and save the day to restore a shattered Voxel Earth to one peace in “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS."

Within this new universe of EDF where everything is displayed in voxel art, an art form with 3D models constructed together from 3D cubes, players will be taking the fight to various voxel-formed landmark battlefields with inspirations from America, United Kingdom, Japan, Egypt, and more in the span of the war for survival. Players can expect access to a massive selection of memorable EDF legendary soldier classes and weapons, ranging from the original numbered “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE” series all the way up to “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 5” along with the additional spin-off EDF series of “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: INSECT ARMAGEDDON” and “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: IRON RAIN.” On top of recruiting and utilizing all of the iconic EDF soldier classes and weapons in the EDF series, players can look forward to recruiting dozens of new characters to discover all over Voxel Earth as local EDF members known as “Brothers” and “Sisters,” like the Cowboy Brother or Maid Sister, as some of the new recruits to enlist! There are over 100 new members for players to find in “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: WORLD BROTHERS” for endless combinations of skillsets, personalities, and abilities to best tackle the mission at hand.


Voxel World’s EDF: Expect the world of EDF in a whole new voxel art look with a family-friendly appeal, all filled with the same swarms of aliens and invaders for players to exterminate within the EDF series

Create your very own EDF: Each mission is tackled by a 4-member team that players can mix and match between EDF members to maximize each of their abilities to lay waste on their enemies

Historic EDF members return: From the very first EDF release in the numbered series all the way to the most recent “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 5” launch on top of the spin-off titles including “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: INSECT ARMAGEDDON” and “EARTH DEFENSE FORCE: IRON RAIN,” players can recruit legendary EDF members and access the wide array of weaponry from a massive selection of the previous games to their teams in the new voxel form

Historic enemies of the EDF series make a comeback too: Familiar Giant Land and Air Creatures alongside Alien War Machines that have invaded Earth and caused mass destruction countless times in all of the past EDF series games are returning to invade in full, voxel form and force
