Fancy A Date?

With its ship date less than a month away, NIS America has released new screens from their upcoming their investigative mystery title Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. The new shots reveal more of the questioning process that players will have to undertake in order to find out the masked culprit behind the latest killing at Hope’s Peak Academy. If they don’t discover who the creepy-looking bear is in time, no one will escape the school alive (dun dun duuunnn!).
Following their announcement yesterday that Monster Monpiece will be coming to North America later this year with a few alterations, Idea Factory has released a statement to address concerns regarding the changes. The full statement is available below, plus a few new screens.
Of Orcs and Men’s goblin trickster Styx will be starring in his own adventure for PC, Styx: Master of Shadows. As the 200-year-old thief, players must sneak into the Tower of Akenash to steal its precious Amber. The tower is miles high and heavily guarded, so Styx will need to undertake missions to reach the top, including stealing precious artifacts and assassinating its human and elven inhabitants. Cyanide plans for the action to be open and fluid, with levels designed so that players have numerous ways to accomplish their tasks, while a six-skill-tree system allows players to customize Styx’s talents. A dynamic AI will require that Styx stick to the shadows, but from there, he can lay traps to make a guard’s death look like an accident—or toss caution to the wind and just stab them (he is a dirty, dirty goblin after all).
Blackguards, adventure-gaming maven Daedalic’s foray into the role-playing world, is now available on GOG and Steam for Mac and Windows PC. A new entry in The Dark Eye universe, Blackguards has players take on the role of a convicted murderer and lead a group of criminals and outcasts against a new sinister power that threatens the land. Players must not only fight against these forces of evil but also wild beasts and monsters as well as the law—they are criminals, after all. The action-heavy title features over 180 battle maps and a turn-based combat system.
