Mini reviews for Gal Guardians: Demon Purge, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe, and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake.
A roguelike twist doesn’t always hit the right mark, but The Dragoness is still a decent introduction to Might and Magic-style strategy.
A Wizardry-like dungeon crawler with a yōkai theme and sumi-e art style? Labyrinth of Zangetsu is definitely going to be one to watch.
Super Bullet Break is full of charm and fun ideas, though it struggles to reconcile the fundamental conflict in its roguelike/gacha mashup.
An intriguing, if uneven, post-apocalyptic tank JRPG finds new life and stronger atmosphere in Metal Max Xeno Reborn.
The New Challengers puts an esports twist the heart, humour, and charming characters that made the first Arcade Spirits great.
Tormented Souls is true homage to the survival horror classics, filled with that fixed-camera atmosphere and the tension of scarce resources.
A playful sense of humour and charming cast make Maglam Lord a ride worth taking, even if its action RPG core leaves a little to be desired.
Gal*Gun Returns is far more clever and subversive than its infamy would suggest, though it doesn’t quite hit the heights of its sequels.
PQube is bringing acclaimed otome game BUSTAFELLOWS and its ‘romance, mystery, and dangerous relationships’ to the west next year.
