Compulsion Games has revealed more of their upcoming platform-puzzler Contrast. Set to launch later this year for 360, PC, and PS3, Contrast has players take control of Dawn, an imaginary friend of Didi, a rambunctious and heartbroken nine-year-old, in a world inspired by vaudeville and noire. The title was recently shown at SCEA’s and Focus Home Interactive’s booths at E3, and a few shots from the demo have been released.
Contra: Evolution, a reimagined take on the 1988 NES original, is now available on the App Store for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. As before, players must battle their way through the jungles of South America against suspiciously familiar aliens and their henchman in a bid to save the planet. Now, however, there are two more characters to choose from, bringing the roster up to four, and each has their own skill set. The announcement also noted that the North American version of Evolution was optimized and polished by original developer CocoaChina along with assistance from Konami.

Gamers look forward to the jet-packed-dragon-powered strategy-RPG hybrid Divinity: Dragon Commander, Larian has something for you. A lot of something. The studio has not only released 14 new screens, but a new 27-minute-long gameplay guide video as well. For nearly half an hour, the developers will walk through the various stages that await budding commanders, with footage of combat, interacting with non-playable characters, unit leveling, and navigating the world map.
Muramasa Rebirth, an enhanced re-release of Vanillaware’s 2009 Wii action-RPG, has shipped to retail for PS Vita. In Muramasa, players must scour Japan for the 108 demon blades, searching in the east as the ninja Kisuke and in the west as the possessed princess Momohime. The PS Vita version features updated visuals, two modes of play (hack-and-slash and traditional), and access to upcoming character and scenario downloadable content.
CastleStorm, a physics-based tower defense and brawler hybrid, will launch next month on Steam, according to developer Zen Studios. The game, set to go live for PC on July 29, will allow players to build their own castle using an in-game editor and then manage its garrison to stave off invading hordes. A video has been released to offer additional details about what players can expect from the castle editor.
Namco Bandai has released Project X Zone, a cross-over strategy-RPG exploding with fan service.

Characters from Street Fighter, Tekken, Resonance of Fate, Dead Rising, Mega Man, Resident Evil, Virtua Fighter, and more will pair off and assist each other with such fighter-styled moves as Cross Hits, Support Attacks, and Special Attacks.
