Weekend Headlines Jan 20th-22nd Part 2: Trailers, Artwork and Other Details

By Rebecca Smith,
Part 2 of the weekend headlines brings us the trailers, screenshots and miscellaneous details that were revealed for numerous titles.


Aaero teased another track that players will need to perfect. Have a listen to Flux Pavilion's "I Can't Stop":

Birthdays the Beginning is a sandbox game in which players create cube-shaped worlds that can support diverse and unique life forms. By experimenting with geography and temperature, players can create the perfect conditions that are needed to sustain life. The latest trailer showcases some of that gameplay.

The latest trailer for Persona 5 (JP) showed players how to infiltrate Palaces and deal with Shadows. To enter a Palace, players must pick a target, extract information and use that in their Metaverse Navigator app. Once inside the palace, hordes of Shadows will try to stop them getting to the Palace ruler. Once the ruler is defeated, players can steal Treasure that represents the target's deepest desires. This changes the target's heart so that they understand their previous evil ways.

Playstation VR title Pixel Ripped 1989 was supposed to be released at the end of last year, but missed that target. Developer Pixel Ripped has confirmed that the game will definitely be releasing this year by showing us a new trailer:

Thunder Lotus Games launched a Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming title . At the moment, they're sitting at 320% funded with 22 days still to go. The trailer below is some gameplay that showcases what players can expect when the game finally hits Playstation 4. If you're interested in becoming a backer for the game, you can join the campaign here.

Touhou Genso Wanderer is a roguelike RPG that puts players in the shoes of Reimu, the Hakurei Shrine Maiden. She needs to investigate the latest incident to take place in Gensokyo. To do this, she needs to partner with a Touhou girl if she is to succeed.


Berserk and the Band of the Hawk gives players devastating abilities, but to use them properly, players must "awaken" them. By awakening these abilities, temporary boosts are granted that allow players to destroy hordes of enemies. For example, Guts’ Berserker Armor allows players to unleash deadly blows, Griffith’s demonic Femto form can deal swift bursts of damage, and Zodd’s giant Apostle form effortlessly topples foes. Some of the fearsome foes that players will encounter include Evil Spirits, Ogres, Kelpies, Golems, Trolls and Demonic Knights. By collecting raw materials and upgrading weaponry outside of battle, you'll be able to increase attack damage and unlock new combos to help with your mission. All of these gameplay features can be seen in the images below:

Finally for this week, one of the bosses for Runner 3 was revealed. The Parliament of Owls is the final boss in the Spookyland area of the game. These owls aren't honourable at all. To make things worse, all court actions must take place in the dead of night because of their nocturnal tendencies.
