A trailer is released from Nintendo featuring the new character named Joy and the video gives a brief peak into her life.




Joy is described as a “Japanese computer whiz" in the promos, who is the newest addition to the gang and she is a hacker, which makes her a unique asset to the team in a heist. Just because she is a hacker doesn't mean that she will be busy with the computers to help her infamous teammates of the gang. Joy got her own hacker perks and weapons to carry around; she will come in handy in times of need. Her face is yet to be revealed as it is always seen covered with her very own changing LED mask.

All we know for now is that, Joy will be arriving in the Switch version of Payday 2 as a limited time exclusive character and that makes her the star of the release. Although not much of the personality of her character is unveiled yet, we have a feeling that we will get to know Joy a little better when she will be introduced on other ports as well after a certain period of time. It's now only a matter of time and the duration of that depends on how long she remains an exclusive to Switch.

Their most recent project includes an action-adventure beat 'em up game OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes, adapted from a popular Cartoon Network show called OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes.

OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes Release Date

Below is the brand-new official trailer for OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes, showcasing brief details of the gameplay and the plot of the adventure K.O. gets into.




K.O. is an aspiring superhero to be and he takes inspiration from his icons he mostly hangs around with. Lord Boxman is a madman who despises K.O. and takes away all the levels from the heroes' pow cards. The trailer shows that. K.O. and his friends will be wandering around inside Lakewood Plaza strip mall as he learns to be a superhero. Scratched from some old concept ideas and character designs, they finally managed to complete the show as they wanted to.


OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes nicely retains its comical tone just like the animated show and Capybara Games did a fine job at that. Though the original series had a 2D styled animation, the gameplay adaptation may seem like a 2.5D experience because of the side-scrolling nature of it. Plus, the game promises to have much more fun in stock and cut-scenes in between K.O.'s adventure quest.


OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes is set to launch on January 23, 2018 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. So, prepare yourself for one of the finest game made from cartoon show that will let you brawl and collect cards with your favorite fictional characters from the show.

Mercenaries Saga Chronicles Comes to Nintendo Switch

CIRCLE Ent. is a Japan-based game publisher who brings new games to market and in 2017, they have introduced 30 new games to various platforms. They mostly work with small-time indie titles and they operate under the name Fly High Works in Asia. Some their great release includes SteamWorld Dig 2, The Day We Found Earth and The Legend of the Dark Witch 3. A few days ago, they teased the announcement of a new Nintendo Switch title on Twitter.

mercenaries saga chronicles nintendo switch
Mercenaries Saga Chronicles Comes to Nintendo Switch

As soon as the clock hit midnight and it was already 2018 in Japan, CIRCLE Ent. have twitted that they are bringing strategy role-playing series Mercenaries Saga for Nintendo Switch.



Tactical RPG Mercenaries Saga by Japanese developer studio Rideon was primarily out as mobile game which used to rock on Nintendo 3DS console later and there were three installments of the game released so far. Many have considered the Mercenaries Saga series as a worthy descendant of Final Fantasy Tactics. The first game of the series was never released in the Western regions and then came Mercenaries Saga 2, which came out in 2015 on Nintendo 3DS, then eventually on Android and iOS.

The third and final title Mercenaries Saga 3 was released on 2016 exclusively for Nintendo 3DS. So, as CIRCLE Ent. is bringing Mercenaries Saga Chronicles, we are getting all three games together much like an anthology. You can also consider the tiles as remaster edition because originally the Mercenaries Saga game series used to run on 240p resolution which is going to be enhanced to a 1080p resolution for Nintendo Switch. So, that definitely bridges the graphical gap between the new take on the game and the predecessor versions.

However, at the moment we cannot say anything about how much the game will cost or there are no official release date announced by CIRCLE Ent. yet. Plus, this time the series is going to see a Western release after all, which will be a great move by the developer and the publishers.

Regalia: Royal Edition Release Date Announced

A Kickstarter funded project by developer Pixelated Milk, Regalia is a JRPG video game which mainly took inspiration from the Final Fantasy days of the creators or the modern day classic Persona series. Even though the game is from a European studio, it is loosely based on JRPG theme while they also mixed up the storytelling adventure in it at the same time. Regalia in its core is a tactical RPG that has a great plot to follow you up on your journey.

regalia of men and monarchs
Regalia: Royal Edition Release Date Announced

The game is about a young man named Kay who is out to restore his kingdom of Ascalia, interacting with other in-game characters who will come across as he advances in his quest. As he journeys to get back his throne again, Kay will lead us to some of the most cherished JRPG moments in recent times. The combats you will get into will be well rewarding if you are tactical enough because that is the main objective of the game.




At times, you can tone down the difficulty level a bit or heck, you can even skip battles if you do not wait to see what plot point is laid ahead of you. However, avoiding fights will not simply make the trouble go away because there is always something up in Ascalia and you've got to deal with them at some point. Just as you are already troubled with a lot that is happening around your kingdom, you also have to face the drama of your teammates’ as well.

Many may think that JRPG has to do something with being Japanese but the developers at Pixelated Milk believe that it is more to do with a certain gameplaying style. They pointed out that a game made in the West will certainly have unique design differences than the one made in the East but that is not essentially a bad thing. Games like Baldur’s Gate or Final Fantasy series has taken a very different approach to the genre despite being considered as consider role-playing games.

Indie studios often face a few common problems like shortage of crews on board and thus, it becomes very difficult for them to get the project up and running on time. The entire process of "just make a game together" turns out to be whole lot of painful than anyone ever thinks of initially. No matter how determined you are to get out of cliche stories and sometimes bothersome trends, you always have limitations slowing you down.

The game was never meant to be a hero's journey or how he bravely saves the world, it was planned as a single plot that could produce many spin-off stories if needed. Upon its entry on the other consoles in the market, Regalia surely will make a name for it and a unique identity of its own.

Regalia is a Japan-themed tactical RPG was released back in May 2017 for PC and according to the announcement of Pixelated Milk, the game is about to make its debut on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One as Regalia: Royal Edition in 2018. There will be no Early Access on Steam for the game and nor it will allow any in-game micro-transactions either. The Royal Edition contains a 30 hours long adventure to experience and many vivid characters to interact with.
