In Granblue Fantasy: Versus, power, skill, and spirit collide in a quest to find the true champion of the ring, with multiple characters from the Granblue Fantasy universe making an appearance.

Starting with Gran, the protagonist of Granblue Fantasy, who travels the skies with his winged companion Vyrn and a mysterious girl, Lyria, who saved his life. Other characters include Katalina, an ex-imperial knight sworn to protect those she holds dear; Charlotta, the virtuous captain of the Lumiel Order of Holy Knights; Lancelot, a dual-wielding master swordsman; and lastly, Ferry, a ghost with a whip and spectral pets.

Developed by Arc System Works and Cygames and published in Europe by Marvelous Europe Limited, Granblue Fantasy: Versus is in development for PlayStation 4.

Rune Factory 4 Special (Switch)

Experience the world-famous fantasy farming adventure like never before, with gorgeous HD graphics in fully remastered form.

The joys of growing crops, catching fish, and raising monsters await players old and new, while seasoned explorers will be delighted to discover an updated opening movie. Other farm-fresh features include Newlywed mode, which introduces special episodes about living the married life and new in-game cutscenes.

Additionally, an even higher difficulty mode for expert players to take on a challenge that’s truly worthy of their skills.

Developed by Marvelous Inc and published in Europe by Marvelous Europe Limited, Rune Factory 4 Special is in development for release this winter for Switch.

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin (PlayStation 4, Switch, PC)

This enthralling title from Edelweiss, the two-man team behind acclaimed indie darling Astebreed (2014 in North America and Europe), Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin combines side-scrolling action with deep crafting and farming simulation.

Players take on the role of Sakuna, a spoiled harvest goddess banished to a dangerous island with a group of outcast humans. As she explores the beautiful, forbidding environments of the island, she will also find a home in a mountain village, proving herself worthy of her title by harvesting rice and bettering the lives of humans.

In addition to being a fresh take on Japanese mythology and a love letter to action games, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is an ode to rice and an engrossing simulation of the craft behind agriculture.

Created by Edelweiss and published in Europe by Marvelous Europe Limited, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is currently in development for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam.

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Complete Edition (PlayStation 4, PC)

Travis Touchdown wanders into the game world and embarks on a rampage of epic proportions. Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Complete Edition features previously released DLC and improved high-definition visuals for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC (via Steam). Beam Katana in hand, slice and dice through a variety of game worlds, then square up to the boss at the end of each game!

Several years after No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, Travis is living his best life in a trailer in the American south, along with his pet cat Jeane. The open air, absolute freedom and plenty of video games…what more could an otaku assassin want? That is until Badman, the father of Travis’ past opponent Bad Girl, shows up to exact revenge for Travis’ role in her demise!

During the ensuing battle, things go horribly wrong and the two are sucked into the Death Drive Mk II–a legendary gaming console that plays games using mysterious objects known as Death Balls. It’s said that collecting all six Death Balls–and beating the games that they contain – will grant the successful player one wish… Now Travis and Badman must put aside their differences, team up and fight their way through several game worlds in a bid to gain that elusive wish, exterminating every last Bug as they go.

Developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and Marvelous Inc, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Complete Edition will be published in Europe for PlayStation 4 by Marvelous Europe Limited releasing on October 17, 2019. Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Complete Edition will also be published for PC via Steam worldwide by Marvelous Inc. and by XSEED Games / Marvelous USA, Inc. and for PlayStation 4 within North America on October 17, 2019.
