Weekend Announcements September 8-10th: Reverie, Robonauts, The Lost Child

By Rebecca Smith, 7 days ago
Now that there is a lull in between game shows, the number of announcements drops. The result is that there are just four new titles that you may have missed. Here is the list:

Pinstripe

Thomas Brush, the man otherwise known as developer Atmos Games, is releasing his debut creation on Playstation 4 this January. The game takes inspiration from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline, and Alice in Wonderland. Players assume the role of Teddy, an estranged ex-minister who is trying to find his 3-year-old daughter Bo. She's been kidnapped by the perverse Mr. Pinstripe and if he's to stand any chance of getting her back, he needs to travel through the frozen afterlife and confront the secrets of his past.


Reverie

Rainbite's upcoming action adventure title is set on a fictional New Zealand island known as Toromi Island. Players assume the role of Tai who has chosen the location for his summer holiday. Unfortunately, angry spirits are threatening the safety of the island and its inhabitants. It is up to Tai to travel through dangerous dungeons and other environments to put the spirits at ease. While the game's appearance and gameplay have been inspired by "various 16-bit action adventure classics of the 90s", the story takes after the legend of Maui and the Giant Fish in which the demigod manages to catch North Island on his fishing rod thanks to a powerful fishhook. You'll be able to appease the spirits when the game is released on Playstation Vita early next year.


Robonauts

One day, a small robot was sent to clean the mech hangar. Overawed by the size of the mechs in front of him, he decided to try one out and accidentally launched himself onto another planet to complete a mission. The problem is that this planet has a lot of weird creatures and they may or may not be friendly. Our robot must save the galaxy by hopping between planets, fighting these creatures and possibly recruiting a friend to help. The game "combines familiar arcade shooting gameplay with a unique possibility to switch gravity" and will launch on Playstation 4 on September 19th.


The Lost Child

NIS America will be bringing Kadokawa Games' RPG to western markets next year. Players assume the role of occult journalist Hayato Ibuki, who is investigating a series of suicides in Tokyo. He encounters a mysterious girl who gives him a device that allows him to capture celestial and arcane creatures, which sends him into another world. If he's to solve the mystery of the device, he must investigate dungeons called Layers, learn more than 250 skills and allocate them amongst the many Astrals that he manages to capture. The title will arrive on Playstation 4 and Vita.
