Quad Fighter K coming to Switch on May 31st, 2018

In the far distant future, a mysterious alien race set its sights on nothing less than the conquest of the Earth and the total annihilation of the human race. To counteract this threat the nations of Earth formed the EDC (Earth Defense Corps) and launched an all-out counter attack. Despite humanity’s best efforts, the alien invaders superior technology proved too much to overcome and they took over most of the planet.

However, before all hope was lost the remnants of mankind came into possession of alien artifacts that would allow it to launch one last desperate assault.

At this point, the enemy forces were already at the doorstep of EDC headquarters, and Earth was bound to fall… With limited recourse left, they came up with the final plan; attack the enemy headquarters with all they have. With help from “Dr. AKEMI” the plan was to destroy the central core of the alien base.

With enemy forces at the gates of the last fortress of the EDC and the fate of the planet hanging in the balance, the leaders of Earth’s forces decide on a desperate course of action: throw everything they had left at the enemy’s headquarters. With the help of the erratically brilliant “Dr. AKEMI,” the goal is no less than the destruction of the very heart of the alien stronghold.

Key Features

It’s Dangerous to Go Alone – The alien forces are an overwhelming force, but one you don’t have to face alone. Bring along three friends and face the alien hordes with local co-op play!
It’s not Retro, it’s Timeless – With 8-bit graphics and a focus on pure arcade shooting action, Quad Fighter K harkens back to the times when it was all about you (and perhaps a couple of friends), a quarter, and lightning-fast reflexes.
Quad Fighter Powers, ACTIVATE! – Do your best work solo, or unleash real damage by linking your ship with a teammate to crush your foes and save the planet. Unlock different attacks by connecting your ship with your allies.
Should I Stay or Should I Go? – Whether you’re gaming at home or on the run, thanks to the mighty morphing powers of the Nintendo Switch, you can take out the alien hordes threatening our alternate Earth whenever, wherever.

PUMA & SEGA Announce Sonic Sneaker Collaboration Arrives In Stores June 5

Global players PUMA and SEGA® today officially announce the worldwide release date of the PUMA x SEGA RS-0 Sonic and Dr. Eggman sneakers. Keeping the gaming and sneaker fans in suspense for quite some time since the partnership announcement in March, the milestone sneaker pack is dropping on June 5th worldwide.

The RS-0 Sonic takes cues from Sonic the Hedgehog and the areas he protects, including the iconic Green Hill Zone. The upper is made from a textured suede reminiscent of Sonic’s trademark blue fur while the striking red outsole stands for his shoes. Take a closer look and you’ll see more familiar color hints from the beloved game – from classic gold rings, to the lush green grass that he speeds on. The upper also features micro ventilation perforations, embroidered PUMA Formstrip, deboss of Sonic’s head and gold rings. Metallic gold rings once again appear on lace ends relating to the classic gold rings collected in the video game. The story continues on the mid and insole with checkered print nostalgic to the retro video game. 16-bit grass print on heel is a nod to the Green Hill Zone. Outsole features translucent red rubber and a Sonic logo under print. Finally, the tongue label features the collaboration logo and RS-0 binary number branding.

The PUMA x SEGA RS-0 Dr. Eggman take cues from Sonic the Hedgehog’s archnemesis, from his flashy outfit to the black and yellow caution stripes from his Eggmobile represented by the sneaker’s all-over red upper and footbed. The upper is decked in a pebbled patent leather with micro ventilation perforations, a debossed PUMA Formstrip, and a debossed Dr. Eggman head that shoots fireballs from his Eggmobile. His conniving face and fireballs are debossed on the medial heel, while gold rings, have been inserted on the lace. The footbed features black and yellow caution stripes - nod to the graphics on Eggman’s Eggmobile. Metallic outsole and caution stripes take design cues from his scientific machinery. Outsole features translucent blue rubber and Sonic logo under print, the exact color referenced from Dr. Eggman’s glasses. Tongue label features the collaboration logo and RS-0 binary number branding. Both sneakers are packaged a special box that inspired by the iconic Green Hill Zone.

This year marked PUMA’s reboot of their 80’s Running System range with the all-new RS-0 model.

Enigmatis 2: The Mists of Ravenwood hitting Switch in Europe on May 24th, 2018

A year has passed since the events of Maple Creek. But for the past few months, our detective has been hot on the trail of the demonic preacher she fought one year ago. Yet he has managed to always stay one step ahead.

She hoped to bring an end to the chase in the redwood forests of Northern California. But like so many times before, the trail went cold…

And all clues led into nearby Ravenwood Park…

Walking through the park gates, the detective feels the weight of invisible eyes watching. Sinister shadows lurk behind the park’s enchanting scenery and the wary glances of its overly-polite employees. Is this place connected to Maple Creek, and the preacher?

Who is the mysterious prisoner she meets on the forest path – someone stalking her every move, or a possible ally? Is she merely a puppet being used in forces from outside our world, or will she finally resolve the evil events that began one year before?
