Set to release tomorrow for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch, Sumo Digital’s Snake Pass explores the concept of navigating a world typically built for a platformer, but without the ability to jump. Instead, players control a colorful snake named Noodle, who slithers and wraps themselves around blocks and branches using a rather unique control scheme. Continue reading
I never got around to playing the original Toukiden on the PlayStation Vita, but Toukiden: Kiwami was my obsession on PS4. Essentially acting as PlayStation’s answer to Monster Hunter’s newfound Nintendo exclusivity, Toukiden is a multi-player “hunting” game where you and your friends slay demons, craft gear, and fuse the souls of legendary figures to your vast array of weapons for a variety of spells and bonuses.
Toukiden’s sequel, aptly titled Toukiden 2, is set to release in North America on March 21st (24th in Europe) for both PS4 and Vita.
