Plus or minus?
April 2023's PS Plus Essential games have been announced, and as per usual, we're looking at three new titles as part of the subscription service's monthly update. This time around, Meet Your Maker is the headline act, which launches straight onto PS Plus. It's an online game where you're either trying to build an impenetrable base or...
Toadally worth checking out
One of April's PS Plus Essential offerings, Tails of Iron is a tough-as-nails 2D RPG that you might have missed. Fret not, we're here to tell you why you should check it out outside of the fact that, you know, you'll have access to it with an active PS Plus membership from 4th April. Tails of Iron tells the tale of...
Lots of post-game content
We've only heard good things about 2D indie game Tails of Iron, so news it has today been treated to a free expansion only makes us want to check it out even more. This is a new slice of content that adds lots of things designed for when you've actually finished it. The Bloody Whiskers expansion includes "a new post-game...
Slow and steady wins the rat race
Upcoming action RPG Tails of Iron (yes, the title is a pun), has a new gameplay trailer. The brief video shows what you can expect from combat encounters, as our brave rat hero goes up against lumbering, totally evil frogs.

Promising action RPG Tails of Iron — which sees rats war with frogs in a medieval setting — now has a release date on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. It's bringing "brutal combat" and "savage boss fights" to Sony's systems on the 17th September. And yes, as noted in previous coverage, that's Geralt's voice actor you can hear in the...
Due to release at some point later this year, hand-drawn action RPG Tails of Iron has been announced for both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. You play as Redgi, a rat prince who's out to reclaim the throne of his furry people from an evil frog empire. We've already been snagged by the premise alone. The press release promises "brutal"...
Set in a grim land plagued by war, Tails of Iron is a hand-drawn RPG Adventure with punishingly brutal combat. As Redgi, heir to the Rat Throne, you must restore your broken Kingdom by banishing the merciless Frog Clan and their ferocious leader, Greenwart. As you explore the deceivingly charming world, you’ll encounter a cast of unique companions, ready to aid you in your adventure. And you’ll need all the help you can get, whether that’s new meal recipes, blueprints to forge deadly weapons and armour, or even a land-chugging, armour-plated mole mobile! Overcome your fears. Rescue your brothers. Restore Your Kingdom. Your tail has begun…
Master Brutal Combat
From frog zombies to gargantuan grubs - and everything in-between - the Kingdom is awash with danger. To overcome each perilous encounter, you’ll need to study your opponent’s attacks and react accordingly! Thankfully, there’s a range of deadly abilities at your disposal, including parry bashes and fatal executions, not to mention ranged attacks with your nifty bow and arrow.
Explore a Treacherous Kingdom
Fully accompanied by the deep, raspy narrations of Doug Cockle, prepare to embark on an epic adventure across the mediaeval-fantasy Rat Kingdom. Complete side quests and faction hunts for some additional gold-on-the-side, or join forces with a sharp-eyed companion to help even the playing field.
Customise your Attack
Adapt Redgi’s combat style to the task at hand. Heavy armour may provide better protection but can you really afford to slow down your dodge-roll? And then there’s the question of weapon; axes pack a punch, while spears are quick and nimble. Perhaps you’d prefer the all-round performance of a trusty broadsword?
Overcome Savage Boss Fights
While danger lurks around every toadstool, you’ll need to keep your wits sharp and your blade sharper when it comes to the devastating boss fights. Cold-blooded in every sense of the word, these oversized amphibians each present their own unique combat challenge, and you’ll need more than a good set of armour to come out on top.
Brew Recipes, Craft Weapons, Forge Armour
Redgi’s keep is also home to his brothers, Rem-Rem, Bam-Bam and Dug. Rem can cook up a health-boosting feast with ingredients found throughout the world, while Bam can craft new weapons and armors from special blueprints you’ll uncover… if you look hard enough. And then there’s Dug, who’ll update you about new quests available throughout the Kingdom.
