Kingdom Two Crowns coming to Switch on Dec. 11th, 2018, will include Shogun kingdom, online 'being explored' for Switch

Over 3 million monarchs have experienced the enigmatic and evocative world of Kingdom since its original release in 2015, and now the next installment of our bestselling franchise is nearly upon us! Kingdom Two Crowns will release worldwide on December 11th for PC, Xbox One, Switch, and PlayStation 4.

And while launch dates are a big deal, there is something even more wondrous about Kingdom Two Crowns that we can finally talk about…

Kingdom Two Crowns will introduce new incredibly vibrant and unique campaign settings for fans to explore.

wiAt launch, Kingdom Two Crowns will feature an additional stunningly gorgeous Japan-inspired setting we’re calling Kingdom Two Crowns: Shogun which will be filled with its own unique set of NPCs, strategies, and mystery. This is on top of the already revamped and reimagined medieval backdrop Kingdom is known for, which will also don its own NPCs and more. Furthermore, additional settings will be coming to Kingdom Two Crowns post launch, each with completely new environments offering their own different items and characters. These aren’t reskins, they are settings that offer different strategies to ruling in Kingdom.

This is the most extensive undertaking of Kingdom we have ever attempted but one look at that teaser trailer and you can see it’ll totally be worth the wait. Both the current setting and the new Kingdom Two Crowns: Shogun setting overhaul Kingdom’s permadeath mechanic and introduce a new campaign style where death will still be your best teacher but you won’t be punished as severely as before.

For veteran rulers, there are plenty of new mysteries to solve in our beloved horse riding simulator. For monarchs who have yet to traverse these lands, Kingdom Two Crowns will make you swoon with its remarkable aesthetic and keep you engrossed with its simple yet brilliant strategic depth.

Kingdom Two Crowns will feature couch co-op on all platforms and online co-op for most platforms at launch (we’re exploring online for Switch at the moment). For Xbox specifically, Kingdom Two Crowns will be a part of Game Pass in December.

Kingdom Two Crowns is shaping up to be the best entry in our beloved series. We’ll be sharing more over the next month so join our Kingdom obsessed community on Discord, follow us on Twitter, sign up for our newsletter, or check out our brand new Kingdom site! Safe travels, future rulers.

PR - Release date and more announced in new Nippon Marathon trailer featuring a familiar voice

Hilarious multiplayer racer will be out just in time for crazy Christmas parties on December 17



PQube (London, UK) - November 12th, 2018 -  PQube and developers Onion Soup Interactive are already stretching their legs as they reveal the release date of Nippon Marathon with a brand new trailer featuring a song from no other than Diana Garnet, singer of the Naruto: Shippuden outro! The party racer that gets closer to a crazy Japanese game show than anything else will be out for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam on December 17th!

Additionally, the developers have released new screenshots and details that offer a sneak peek of the game's seventh level "JINKO EKI STATION", where runners have to jump from bullet train to bull train, as well as Snuguru Maestro's story mode: the half-human, half-dog with the voice of an angel.


Level 7: JINKO EKI STATION

What could be more chaotic than having to run through a busy Japanese train station during rush hour with hundreds of salarymen and barriers? How about just missing the departing bullet train so you have to run on top of it and jump on a bull train mid race! Add some watermelons, classic banana peels and hurdles to that and - voila - we have ourselves a brand new Nippon Marathon track!

Story Mode: Snuguru Maestro

Story Mode allows you to choose and follow the journey of the four main characters from pre-Nippon Marathon to post-Nippon Marathon in a mix of races and visual novel with numerous chapters - one of them is Snuguru Maestro! Find out about his ancestry, where his love for watermelons comes from and most importantly: how in the world is he half-human, half-dog?!


Currently in Steam Early Access, Nippon Marathon is billed as Micro Machines meets Takeshi’s Castle – a hell for leather physics-heavy race across Japan. Slip into your Narwhal Onesie, Lobster Suit, School Uniform or… er… Dog Head and charge through locations across Japan!

Stay at the front of the pack to make your competitors disappear at the end of the screen and gain stars - then the race resets to the last checkpoint until the finish line where the racer with the most stars wins! Easy, right? Absolutely, if it weren't for throwable fruits, shopping carts, inflatable pineapples, collapsing tracks, clingy Shiba Inus, water melon rains and many more hilarious hazards!

Fresh from the oven, Toast Time: Smash Up! brings the unique toast-based recoil & reload action from the appetising, breakfast-defence, cult smash hit Toast Time to the multiplayer brawler/eSports genre.

It's mutually assured destruction.
