Grimms Notes is a Square Enix RPG with fairytale characters, and it’s coming to the West

thumbnail

Squeenix loves a mashup. Following the success of its Kingdom Hearts series, in which it dropped various Disney characters into an action role-playing universe, it released Grimms Notes in Japan in 2016. This time it was fairytale characters receiving the transplant treatment, with timeless protagonists like Little Red Riding Hood, Aladdin, Cinderella, and others wielding magical powers and hitting goons with swords. Apparently, its main selling points are its pretty graphics (all the better to see you with) and its simple controls (all the better to ...

New trailer and release date for PikPok’s Into the Dead 2

thumbnail

Pikpok’s Into the Dead 2 will hit Google Play on October 13th, in plenty of time for Halloween. The first Into the Dead saw you automatically running headlong into a creepy swarm of zombies, tilting your handset left and right to weave between them for as long as possible. It was pretty good. Into the Dead 2 looks like a much more elaborate affair, with a stronger narrative, crafted levels, and deeper gameplay. That’s what the press release says, anyway. And going by the trailer it’s not wrong. There’s ...

thumbnail

Dragon Project, by Sega subsidiary goGame, has been making a splash on the other side of the world, hitting the coveted #1 spot on the Japanese App Store and Google Play in June according to the press release we’ve just received. We’re not entirely sure how it managed this, since it’s only available in Southeast Asia, but the game is #1 in the RPG section of the App Store in Laos right now so we’ll just say that’s good enough and move on. Point is, we think Dragon Project looks ...

Sonic Forces: Speed Battle is an upcoming endless runner

thumbnail

Sonic Forces: Speed Battle is an upcoming endless runner tie-in to the console version. It just appeared on the App Store in the Philippines, but it will likely launch on Android at a later date! It appears to be a reskin of Sonic Dash but with Forces style visuals. It’s darker, a little edgier, and a little racier. No, I don’t mean in the hot under the collar sense either. Sonic Forces: Speed Battle is an endless runner tie-in coming to Android I mean it’s actually a racing game. In the gameplay video we’ve seen ...
