It wasn’t long ago that Atelier Ryza was announced, and now we have a Western release set in stone for you all to get excited about. This will mark the third Atelier title to release in this year alone, and sounds to be a completely new series of titles.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & The Secret Hideout is coming out 29th October for North America and 1st November for Europe. It will be launching on PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
You can read the official description of the game below:
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout begins an all-new storyline arc in GUST Studios’ fan-favourite Atelier series. The beautiful role-playing game follows the exploits of teenage tomboy Ryza, who dreams of escaping her mundane village lifestyle alongside her band of mischievous friends. One day, as they explore a forbidden island in search of adventure, they meet an elderly magician who will change their lives forever. After some convincing, the old man begins teaching Ryza the enchanting ways of alchemy, launching her on an adventure that will ultimately lead her on a quest to save her hometown from the mysterious and deadly darkness lurking beneath the surface.
In order to showcase the vibrant environments surrounding Ryza, GUST Studios instituted more realistic shadows, giving birth to a world that feels more expansive and filled with life. In addition, the fantastical depictions of the game’s colourful characters continue, pushing the series forward with a mix of both new and familiar visual sparkle.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout also introduces RPG fans to an all-new evolved synthesis program that enables alchemists to better understand the effects of synthesis visually. Additionally, the system allows everyone to not only enjoy the experience of developing recipes, but the ability to use the innovative creation system to gather items in the field using various tools — different tools uncover different items at the same location — before crafting unique items never before seen in the series.

During Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct yesterday, they showed off some new features to upcoming collaboration with Team Ninja Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Along with showing some cool gameplay segments, some story cutscenes and other flashy stuff you come to expect from Team Ninja, at the end an Expansion Pass was announced for the title.
The Expansion Pass though looks to be in a very similar vein to how Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors treated theirs. A modest fee for three big content packs, in this case focusing on Marvel Knights, X-Men and Fantastic Four.
Below you can read what the Expansion Pass contents will include:
Expand your adventure and roster of playable characters in the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order game with the paid Expansion Pass, which grants access to three exclusive DLC packs that will become available as they release one at a time after the game’s launch and will not be available for individual purchase.
DLC packs will contain new content such as playable characters, modes, and additional story.
Includes content from popular franchises, like the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and the Marvel Knights.
First DLC pack will be available in Fall 2019.
Purchasers of the Expansion Pass to receive an in-game alternative-color chef outfit for Deadpool at game launch..
The DLC itself will start to roll out this Fall with it’s first pack; Marvel Knights. You can check out the full trailer from the Nintendo Direct below:
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order releases July 19th exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.

KOEI Tecmo and HAMSTER have been cooperating for a while now in bringing their old Arcade titles to the Nintendo Switch, and now we have yet another new title added to the ever growing library. The title in question is Solomon’s Key, which is a puzzle based escape room type game. It is one of Tecmo’s early Arcade hits that also got ports to several home consoles during it’s hay day.
Unless you have been living under a rock the past few decades, you’d know that it is E3 next week (June 11-13), the biggest gaming expo around the world. With an event of this size it is no wonder that KOEI Tecmo will be showing off titles. However with Sony dropping out from this years event what would KOEI Tecmo be able to show?
This year is going to be all Nintendo from the looks of things, as they are a big player on the E3 playing field. The three major titles that KOEI Tecmo are involved in will be Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, Dragon Quest Builders 2 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses. If Dragon Quest Builders 2 doesn’t get featured on Nintendo’s Treehouse livestreams, it will more than likely appear during Square-Enix’s conference – showing both the PS4 and Nintendo Switch versions.
We hope to see some decent play time with Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 as well as any more information we can scrape from Fire Emblem Three Houses, which looks to bring great strategical action to the table.
With Sony not turning up, we can safely say there will be no information regarding the upcoming Ni-Oh 2, which recently got a closed alpha test. There is a slight chance A.O.T 2: Final Battle will show up, but that will simply depend if the Nintendo Treehouse team decide to play it.
As for new titles or reveals? We do hope to hear something new from KOEI Tecmo, and the most likely reveal would be a new collaboration with Nintendo, perhaps even a sequel to Hyrule Warriors or another Warriors mix with a Nintendo IP.
Either way, there will be three titles definitely shown for us all to look forward to seeing, with new details and full gameplay. The three games in question release throughout July 2019.
What are you hoping to see at E3 2019 from KOEI Tecmo? Would you like to see a new collaboration effort? Let us know in those comments!
Arriving last week on the Japanese eShop, you can now download the “Basic Edition” of the game, which gives you full reign of the 14 day holiday, but only with Kasumi. You can purchase more characters through the eShop much like the Dead or Alive Core Fighters free to play series allows.
Don’t have a Japanese Switch? Then fret not because you can access it in English on whatever region your Nintendo Switch is from. All you have to do is make sure you have a separate Nintendo profile set up and attach a My Nintendo account with the location of Japan. Then when you boot the eShop up with this profile you’ll be brought into the Japanese eShop. When there you can download the DOAX3 Scarlet Basic Edition. Once it is all downloaded you can boot the game up with your regular profile and it will auto launch with English translation (still voiced in Japanese).
So if you have been curious by the still blocked Western release of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, you can now jump in and give it a go!
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet is out now on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan. Only the Nintendo Switch has the Basic Edition, and is also uncensored compared to the PS4 version. The title will take up 4.4GB of your SD card.
What are your thoughts on Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet getting a free-to-play edition on Switch? Have you given it a go? Let us know in those comments!
