Axolotls were already some of nature's deadliest predators, but when armed with the most popular gun in the world, they become paedomorphic salamanders truly worth fearing. Such is the pitch for the excellent-looking AK-xolotl, a top-down roguelike shooter starring a cold-blooded, preemptively overprotective parent. Get ready to rock on PS5 and PS4 on 14th September.

Channelling Enter the Gungeon, and perhaps even a little Cult of the Lamb, don't be deceived by the cute and cuddly exterior; you can raise an adorable army of gun-toting Axolittles to help you "blast your way through the animal kingdom with an arsenal of kick-ass guns and mighty powerups".
