Hertfordshire, 29th June 2017 – KOEI TECMO Europe today proudly revealed that the standalone sequel to the gothic fairy tale action RPG from developer GUST Studios, Nights of Azure, is headed to western shores as Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon on the 27th October 2017. Nights of Azure 2 marks the publisher’s western debut on Nintendo Switch™, with simultaneous releases planned for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC via Steam®.
Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon takes place in a fictional, demon-ridden Western European city towards the end of the 19th century. The story focuses on a knight protector named Alushe and her two childhood friends – Liliana, a kind-hearted priestess, and Ruhenheid, a holy knight of the Lourdes Order. While guarding Liliana, Alushe is ambushed and killed only to later awaken as an artificial half-demon at the hands of the New Curia, a religious organisation with dark ties. In the company of a variety of unlikely allies with their own pasts and agendas, Alushe’s strong desire to save Liliana gives her the strength to scatter the shadows shrouding the world and motivation to uncover the shocking truth behind the mysterious Queen of the Moon.
To introduce some of the colourful characters who comprise the game’s new cast, KOEI TECMO Europe has released a selection of assets featuring Alushe Anatoria, Liliana Selphin and Ruhenheid Ariarod alongside a trailer with a first look at the demon-ridden setting where their narrative unfolds.

Hertfordshire, 22nd June 2017 – KOEI TECMO Europe today revealed exciting new combat mechanics and exploration features slated to debut with the upcoming instalment in developer Omega Force’s long-running action franchise, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9. An impressive new trailer released alongside today’s announcement provides a closer look at the beautifully rendered environments and dynamic combat systems that players can look forward to.
DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 introduces exhilarating new combat mechanics to the series’ signature “one versus thousands” style gameplay with the State Combo System. This new system allows players to perform 3 different attack styles – Trigger Attacks, Flow Attacks and Finish Attacks – each dealing progressively more damage. Trigger Attacks allow players to create the start of an explosive combo, leading to Flow Attacks, which adapt to the enemy’s current state. Successful combos allow for a Finish Attack to be performed, delivering a final blow that eradicates any foes caught in its path. These new enhancements aim to create a thrilling and fluid experience unlike any previous entry in the franchise.
Augmenting the series’ first true open world is another immersive innovation introduced in DYNASTY WARRIORS 9: the Interactive Action system. Players will be able to fully utilise their surroundings for the first time in the Warriors franchise with the ability to climb buildings and mountains, wield grappling hooks to traverse walls, and make use of objects like oil barrels in battle. These new actions offer a breadth of new possibilities for players to take advantage of while travelling around third-century China, or when caught in the heat of battle!
Unifying the classic, time-tested action iconic to the Warriors series with a variety of new features, characters, and content in an expansive open world environment, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 aims to deliver the most immersive and ambitious DYNASTY WARRIORS experience to date. Platforms, release timing, and more information on the game’s new features, characters, and narrative will be unveiled in the coming months.
As most of you should know, this week is E3 week, and Nintendo has definitely not been shy with showing what cards they have concealed. During their annual Treehouse Live segments, they showed off a new Trailer and did a Live presentation for Fire Emblem Warriors on the Nintendo Switch. They have yet to show any footage for the New 3DS version of the game, but there are still some days left for them to do so!
The game itself is looking great, showing the brisk art style known from the Fire Emblem series, with hectic hack ‘n’ slash at it’s core. With new key features shown such as being able to give commands to fellow officers, switching between officers mid-battle, the weapon triangle system (sword-axe-lance) famous in the Fire Emblem series are just some of many awesome mechanics to the game.
Alongside a beefy story mode, there will also be a side-mode, Colosseum mode, which is more like a boss rush style mode where you face off against certain enemy officers and their peons. Progressing through each officer to the next to reach your goal. You will see this in the Live Presentation attached below.
There are also a ton of new characters shown off, including those from recent Fire Emblem games as well! Be sure to check out both the trailer and the live presentation below to fully get in the know! Any Fire Emblem fan or Warriors fan won’t regret it!
The release date is still scheduled for Fall 2017, but hopefully as we are getting closer we will get a release date and much more information soon! Let us know in the comments what you think!
Last week during the “Atelier Series 20th Anniversary Presentation” there was a couple of big announcements! First of all, the next (and probably final) instalment of the Mysterious arc has been unveiled, called Riddii & Suuru no Atelier ~Fushigi no Kaiga no Renkinjutsushi~ (English title: Atelier Liddy & Sule ~The Alchemist of the Mysterious Painting~). This will also mark the return of the dual protagonists to the series. Not much else is known aside from the teaser pic (shown in the announcement picture), which shows silhouettes of the titular characters.
Secondly, and what could be quite interesting (though a whole lot more unlikely to come west) is Atelier Online ~Bureseiru no Renkinjutsushi~, which will be an online MMO game for Android and iOS devices. Developed by both Gust and NHN Play Art. You can check out the reveal trailer below to find out more for the game!
We will be adding pages to both games in the coming weeks with further information as and when revealed. Are you interested in these games? Let us know in the comments!
