Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance "The Ultimate Beginning" Trailer

Back with a Shin Megami Tensei V Vengance!

30 May 2024
by the8bitlego 0

Ahead of its quickly-approaching June 14th release date, we’ve gotten a new trailer for Shin Megami Tensei V,. Take a look at the video above for a look into some of the stories and characters you can expect to meet in just a few short weeks! Also, take a look down below for a quick description of the game, if readings more your thing.

SMTV: Vengeance is the definitive version of the critically acclaimed Shin Megami Tensei V, massively expanded with a brand-new storyline featuring new locations, demons, and choices to make that will dictate the fate of all existence.

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance consists of two complete story paths: experience a brand-new route, the “Canon of Vengeance” - a dramatic tale of revenge by the fallen, centered around new characters and an enigmatic cohort of demons, the Qadištu, who plot their own dark designs apart from the war of those who fight to maintain order and those who seek to defy it. Or explore the original story told in Shin Megami Tensei V, the “Canon of Creation” - an eternal conflict between angels and demons, in which the protagonist fights for the world’s fate.

When a grisly murder scene in modern-day Tokyo blocks our protagonist’s walk home, an unplanned detour leaves him buried and unconscious. He awakens in a new Tokyo, a wasteland ravaged by apocalypse now called Da’at… but before bloodthirsty demons can claim his life, a savior emerges, and the two of them unite to become a mighty being, neither human nor demon: a Nahobino.

With newfound power, the protagonist ventures through Da’at, an enigmatic realm filled with mythical deities and demonic tyrants in constant conflict for survival. Searching for answers, the protagonist must forge his own path in a battle between angels and demons to dictate the fate of the world.


Paramount has released a new video featuring Kendall Deacon Davis and Marguerite Bennett, the two lead writers behind ARK: The Animated Series where they talk about their process behind adapting the game to TV.It’s always nice to get a look behind the curtain involving how shows are made, but it’s especially interesting when working with adaptions, especially when the adaptation is on a game like ARK, which is a bit more open-ended than other recent adaptations.

Can’t wait after watching that breakdown? Well, you’re in luck, as the series is streaming now on Paramount +! Be sure to check it out!

Mind if I grab a slice?

25 April 2024

Ive always wanted to climb up trap-filled towers, but sadly they are pretty few and far between. Luckily for me Blade Jumper can recreate that experience, and give me a cool sword! How lucky! Personally, as a fan of Katana Zero, this game has caught my eye, as it seems to have both a similar style and game-play. Its set to come out May 23rd, so not too much longer of a wait!

Check out the game’s description below for more information, or grab a glimpse of the action above!

Blade Jumper is a 2D action platformer where players use a simple jump mechanic in order to climb the obstacle-filled tower.

In 2045’s Yeouido, in the heart of Seoul, the massive structure Kukuru Tower was constructed, overshadowing the rest of the city. In this unfathomably high tower, the selected 1% of Seoul residents live their happy lives, separated from the outside world.

From their headquarters within Kukuru Tower, the authoritarian Unreality conglomerate dominates Seoul with pleasurable feelings, using its highly addictive Kukuru Candies. The vigilante group Ground Z, preparing for the final battle to overthrow Unreality’s hold, comes looking for you, their former infamous agent.

Are you ready to climb the mysterious Kukuru Tower?

Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord Is quite an old, but influential game. Its a shame there’s no way to play it in beautiful, remastered 3D glory… Oh wait, there is now! Or, at the very least, there will be in just a few weeks. Coming May 23rd, a full, 3d Remaster of this classic will be available once more!

A pretty cool detail from this remake is that it is built straight from the original, meaning you can switch between new and old! Neat! Check out the full press release below for all of the details!

In 1981, SirTech released the first game in what would soon become a legendary RPG series – Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord for the Apple II. As the very first party-based dungeon crawler, it was one of the key games that launched the role-playing genre, directly inspiring enduring series like Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Demon’s Souls.

Now Digital Eclipse, a studio dedicated to the historical preservation of video games, is treating RPG fans worldwide to a full 3D remaster of this genre-defining game.

Following last year’s Early Access release on Steam and GOG, Digital Eclipse’s Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord remaster will be released on May 23 in its fully completed form for Nintendo Switch.

A LEGEND REBORN

Digital Eclipse’s Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord revival is built directly on top of the original Apple II game’s code, preserving the appeal of the classic while also incorporating modern graphics and improved party management, navigation, spellcasting, and combat.

While the remake may look, sound, and feel completely new, the original Apple II game is under the hood – you can even view the original interface while you’re playing.

Craft your own party of adventurers and head into the labyrinth at the behest of the mad overlord Trebor, in search of the amulet stolen by the evil wizard Werdna. Battle challenging monsters, avoid hidden traps, and find your way through the dungeon for the ultimate showdown with Werdna himself.

Enthusiastic player feedback of an Early Access build contributed to numerous improvements in the final game, including:

Beautiful new graphics & animations for a game that, by necessity, only offered rudimentary visuals, now with the power of Unreal Engine.

User-selectable options that allow players to tailor the gameplay to their liking, including popular options from the console editions of the game. Players can also choose no new options at all to experience the original, more challenging gameplay.

An in-game Bestiary that records key information on enemies as they’re encountered and offers strategic advice on their strengths and weaknesses.

A lush musical soundtrack from composer Winifred Philips, including some fan-favorite themes from Wizardry history.

A controller-friendly interface, with a one-button shortcut for fast combat choices.

Fully localized into English, Japanese, French, Spanish, Italian, and German.
