New Releases: Week of 5/21/17

/ May 21st, 2017 No Comments


The last full week of May brings some heat. It is a big week for Switch owners as some serious gameage comes out for the system giving it a much needed boost of variety.

This week’s new releases include Disgaea 5 Complete, Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception, Guilty Gears Xrd Revelator 2, Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, and Rime.

Disgaea 5 Complete – Switch – May 23

In a galaxy of countless Netherworlds, Overlords are only kept in check by other Overlords. This balance is essential to keeping anyone Overlord from becoming too powerful. That changes with the appearance of Demon Emperor Void Dark and his army, the Lost, which has ravaged many other Netherworlds throwing this delicate balance off.

One lone demon stands against Void Dark and the Lost to oppose their unchecked avarice. Killia has sworn revenge against the Lost and promises to crush them. By happenstance he helps save Princess Overlord Seraphina from Void Dark forming an alliance that will help him oppose the unimaginably powerful Void Dark.

Haku wakes up in an unfamiliar place with no memory of who he is or how he got there. The wilderness is hostile and the danger palpable, but luckily he is rescued by Kuon, a beautiful girl with animal ears and a beastlike tail, yeah that’s what this kind of game is. Eventually, the two team up and encounter a bunch of plucky characters, form deep bonds, battle powerful enemies, and Haku will find himself caught up in the political stuggles of the nation of Yamato.

The game will be playable in its classic pixel art style and an updated HD version similar to Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. You can switch between the two at will.
