Weekend Announcements November 24-26th: Let Them Come, Romancing SaGa 2 and More

By Rebecca Smith,
Carrying on at the same pace as we did last week, this weekend brought along seven new announcements for you to watch out for in the future.

At Sundown

The first of two Versus Evil games this week, Mild Beast Games' upcoming title is described as a "top-down multiplayer shooter in the dark". Most players would likely regard the lack of ability to see as a hindrance, but in this game the light is your enemy. Sneak through the darkness to get the jump on your enemies. Each of the game's maps have their own hazards and light mechanics. More maps and weapons will be unlocked as players progress, and power ups and rewards will offer temporary boosts, such as a spotlight on your enemy. Up to four players can duke it out online or in local multiplayer when the game arrives on Playstation 4 next year.


Bigmoon Entertainment has teamed up with Deep Silver to tackle the DAKAR licence as their next AAA title. The game will be open world with an area of over 15,000 km2, which is split into 14 stages to reflect the biggest and toughest rally in the world. Racing is split across five vehicle categories — cars, bikes, trucks, quads and SSVs — and official teams and drivers will be reflected in the game. If you beat up your vehicle too much, you'll have to fix it, and you'll have to deal with all kinds of weathers too. The game isn't just about the rally, though; players will even be able to leave their vehicles and explore the world if they wish to do so. The title will be arriving on Playstation 4 in the future.

Let Them Come

The second Versus Evil title to be revealed is Tuatara Games' "fast-paced pixel art shoot ‘em up". Players assume the role of Rock Gunar, a mercenary for hire who has a big gun and knows what to do with it. Aliens are breeding in the galaxy and they're coming in waves to destroy humanity. You know what you have to do. The gameplay is promised to be easy to pick up but hard to master as you'll get a variety of weapons to do your job. The game will be appearing on Playstation 4 on December 5th for US$7.99 or regional equivalent.

No Heroes Here

Mad Mimic Interactive's 2D castle defense game blends tower defence with crafting and platforming. In the Kingdom of Noobland, the last hero has been killed while the country is at war. This means that the non-heroes will have to save the day instead. Up to four players can team up locally or online to craft ammo, load the cannons and defeat the hordes of enemies that are trying to seize the castles across the kingdom. While the title has just been released on PC, it won't be arriving on Playstation 4 until early next year.

Romancing SaGa 2

Square Enix is cutting it fine on this one if series creator Akitoshi Kawazu is to be believed. Currently scheduled for next month on Vita and "some other game consoles", this RPG will be making its way west. Players assume the role of a number of rulers that span generations of the Varennes Empire as they battle the Seven Heroes. Other details are scarce right now although we're being encouraged to wait for the official announcement from the publisher. In the meantime, take a look at the game's Japanese trailer to see what you can expect.

Publisher Headup Games describes btf's upcoming adventure title as "Twin Peaks meeting The X-Files, but in rural cold-war Germany". It's 1967 and American scientist Hans Tannhauser is on holiday in the remote village of Trüberbrook, in the middle of the mountainous forests of Cold War Germany. As you may have expected, not everything is as it seems. Arriving at his hostel, strange things start to happen. Meanwhile, the villagers and his fellow spa guests are peculiar, to say the least. It soon occurs to him that his arrival in the village may not have been accidental and that his purpose for being here might just be to save the world. The 7-10 hour story will be arriving on Playstation 4 late next year.

Tyr: Chains of Valhalla

Ennui Studio's upcoming title isn't a run and gun game, it's a "Jump & Shoot" title inspired by Norse mythology but adds a cyberpunk perspective. Focusing on the Ragnarök, their technological world is run by mega-corporations such as Yggdrasil and features many different Mechas. Professor Oswald Din has created Tyr, whose sole mission is to stop Lemuz Oki and his troop of Vikings and Mechas from seizing the biggest technology company and then the world. After successfully funding their title on Kickstarter, the game is due to be released on Playstation 4 in August 2018.

Will you be purchasing any of these titles?
