Black Future ’88 - Announcement trailer

Black Future '88 is coming soon to the Nintendo Switch as a console exclusive! Players can grab a friend and fight to conquer a constantly evolving tower in the game's local Co-Op mode which supports individual JoyCon play for two players in both handheld and docked modes.

OAKLAND, Calif., and AMSTERDAM – Feb. 19, 2019 – Good Shepherd Entertainment and independent developer SuperScarySnakes have announced that Black Future ‘88, the 2D synth-punk roguelike action shooter, will launch on Nintendo Switch™ in 2019. Set in a grim alternate history where it’s always 1988, Black Future ‘88 puts players on a non-stop dungeon-crawling ascent against homicidal robots, cutthroats, bosses and more to exact revenge on the man who destroyed the world.

Black Future ‘88 is constantly evolving to try to kill you. As one of the last remaining survivors of nuclear cataclysm, you’ll climb a procedurally generated tower through a merciless onslaught of fire, lasers and steel. The only way to kill your mark before your heart explodes is strategically choosing and combining dozens of unique buffs and curses. Choose from several characters with a huge arsenal of weapons and powers as you shoot, slash and dash through anything standing between you and the top of the world.

Survive this nightmarish neon-lit retro dystopia alone or with a friend in two-player local co-op, then measure your mettle against other players by taking on special daily challenges to scale the global leaderboard.

Black Future ‘88 will also arrive on Windows PC later this year. For more information, visit www.BlackFuture88.com, and follow Good Shepherd Entertainment and SuperScarySnakes on Twitter @GoodShepherdEnt and @SuperScarySnake.

LEGO DC Super-Villains - DC Movie Character Pack announced

Playable Characters from the Justice League Movie Add to the Fun!
Burbank, Calif. – Feb. 12, 2019 – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released the
DC Movie Character Pack for LEGO® DC Super-Villains on PlayStation®4, Xbox One®, Nintendo Switch™, and Windows® PC. The new pack features iconic DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains including Wonder Woman, Batman, The Flash, Superman, Cyborg, and Deathstroke each with a fresh look matching their appearance in the Justice League movie produced by Warner Bros. Pictures. Players can also play as the original, comic book version of these characters in the main game.

As one of the most beloved and iconic DC Super Heroes of all time, Wonder Woman has stood for nearly eighty years as a symbol of truth, justice and equality to people everywhere. With super strength and legendary combat skills, she constantly walks the line of promoting peace and her need to fight back against evil doers on Earth.

Batman dedicated his life to an endless crusade, a war on all criminals in the name of his parents, who were taken from him when he was just a child. A self-made Super Hero, he trained his body and mind to near physical perfection while using an arsenal of technology to keep a watchful, protective eye over Gotham City, especially against criminals like The Joker.

Both a master of speed and time, The Flash often uses his powers to travel though different eras and even into other dimensions. As a Super Hero, The Flash always does his best to outrun tragedies and to keep them from happening to those around him.

Superman is the world’s first Super Hero and a guiding light to all known by his uniform, “S” shield on his chest, and unmatchable super strength and the ability to fly. The Man of Steel is the ultimate symbol of truth, justice, and hope and he strives to represent the inherent goodness of the human spirit, and the capacity of every living thing to do right by their neighbors.

Part man and part machine, Cyborg is far stronger than the average person. By interfacing with computers with his genius-level intellect, he can emit various types of energy making him a formidable fighter. One of the planet’s greatest Super Heroes, Cyborg uses his ability to communicate and command technology to save innocent lives.

Deathstroke is the only Super-Villain to make an appearance from the Justice League movie as part of the character pack. He depends on his heightened speed, strength, senses, and most importantly, his incredibly high intelligence, which makes him a master strategist and tactician. He is one of the world’s greatest and most feared Super Villains.

The DC Movie Character Pack is part of the Season Pass included in the LEGO DC Super-Villains Deluxe Edition or can be purchased separately for $1.99.

In LEGO® DC Super-Villains, the Justice League has disappeared, leaving Earth’s protection to a newcomer group of heroes from a parallel universe, proclaiming themselves as the ‘Justice Syndicate’. Renowned DC Super-Villains from the ‘Legion Of Doom’ discover Earth’s newest heroes may not be the heroes they claim to be. With each player’s completely customizable Super-Villain character in command, this team of misfits must join forces to discover and foil the evil plans the incognito newcomers have in store. Players will create their own supervillain character and set out on a journey to determine their character’s purpose within the story. Along the way, players will unlock new powers and customizations for their character, travel off the beaten path for additional story quests, puzzles, and mini-games to unlock rewards and recruit other DC Super-Villains, and cause mischief throughout well-known DC locations including Gotham, Metropolis, Smallville, and more.

Vivox updates their software development kit, allows text and voice chat on Nintendo Switch

Vivox announced today that they would be updating their software development kit to allow text and voice chat on the Nintendo Switch. As such, third-party developers can now incorporate these features in their games, as Nintendo's default tools do not grant access to these features. These tech also allows for cross-platform compatibility, as demonstrated by Fortnite, which also utilizes the Vivox engine. Other Nintendo Switch games, such as Paladins and Smite also want to make use of these new features, and it is highly probable that they will be incorporated in a future update. You can check out full details on Vivox via the press release below.

Vivox is pleased to announce that all authorized Nintendo Switch developers can now utilize the Vivox SDK on the Nintendo Switch system. This allows developers the choice to provide in-game voice chat capabilities over a headset plugged directly into the console. Vivox is eager to see game developers bring more communication options to Nintendo Switch. Having many communication options available, including crossplay voice chat across consoles and PCs, enhances the social angle of gameplay.

Developers interested in utilizing the Vivox SDK in their Nintendo Switch titles can reach out to Vivox through the developer’s existing account on the Nintendo developer portal, and from there can download and begin integration of the SDKs.

Development teams have already brought Vivox into their Nintendo Switch ports with outstanding results, including Epic Games’ Fortnite. Hi-Rez Studio will also be leveraging the Vivox SDK for SMITE and Paladins in forthcoming game updates. That same functionality is now available to all publishers. Developers also have access to Vivox’s highly experienced support staff, who are on-call and ready to make sure every customer has a successful experience. Vivox is excited to see more customers joining the growing list.

“We’ve already seen a great deal of success with Nintendo and the use of our voice services in Fortnite,” said Dave Verratti, president of Vivox. “We are extremely proud to be a part of the Nintendo ecosystem. We’re happy to help Nintendo continue to push the envelope in their products by bringing gamers together through enhanced communications. Multiplayer games can and should excel on Nintendo Switch, and we’re excited to see the results of the Vivox SDK on Nintendo Switch.”

With the addition of Nintendo’s latest console, Vivox now officially powers crossplay-ready voice and text communication across every major gaming platform, allowing game developers to engage their audiences in the games they love through quick and easy communication. For more information about the Vivox SDK and how to download the software for Nintendo Switch, please visit www.vivox.com
