Tales from the crypt
Cult action platformer La-Mulana’s sequel is coming to the PlayStation 4, and it’ll launch in the spring of next year. The whip-based Metroidvania was playable at a pre-PAX West event organised by [email protected] overnight, and promises the same “sprawling ancient ruins mind-boggling mysteries” as its predecessor. Here’s an...
Ace of bass
What in the name of Nemo is this? Nussoft has announced open world, aquatic action game Ace of Seafood for the PlayStation 4, which... Well, we don’t even know where to start with this one. The game essentially takes place in a fantasy world where sea urchins possess the ability “to shoot powerful rays of light”. You’ll be...
It's a supernatural fright
Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight is a 2D side-scrolling platformer that firmly plants its feet in the Metroidvania genre. Stop us if you've heard that one before. But what is a debut on consoles is actually a fourth entry in a series that dates back to 2010 on the PC, with the game in question debuting back in 2016...
Live by the sword
Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae is a bit like Devil May Cry on a budget – a really tight budget. It's a Japanese indie that's all about killer combos, fast reactions, and the process of mastering the game's combat system. Those looking for a story to get stuck into or characters to grow fond of had best move along. In a way, Mitsurugi...

It launches on the North American...
If you're up for an accessible, hectic action game starring strange little girls, then you could do much worse than Croixleur Sigma – a Japanese indie title that's arrived on the PlayStation 4 after a reasonably successful stint on PC. This enhanced console edition comes with two new playable characters, expanded story episodes, and...
It looks just as crazy, too
A no doubt niche Japanese title that's just happened to catch our eye, the awkwardly named Croixleur Sigma is coming to the PlayStation 4. It's a boisterous beat-'em-up that's incredibly reminiscent of Phantom Breaker in that it features little girls that boast ridiculous powers, but there's one key difference: this one...
Torque to the hand
The term 'indie' has been abused over the past 18 months or so. Originally intended for the exclusive use of moustache twiddling hipsters, this was a word used to describe the most independent of endeavours – preferably those programmed by a middle-aged man clad in a Reebok tracksuit, working from the corner of his Mum's...
