This unreleased arcade platformer by the legendary team behind the Monster World/Wonder Boy series is FINALLY coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch on the 14th!
Check out what I thought of the equally excellent and affordable arcade shmup, Crisis Wing!
Known as 'Wings of Wor' here in the States, Gynoug is a Sega Genesis classic brought to modern platforms, along with plenty of quality of life toggles.
Fans of Limbo, Inside, and Little Nightmares will want to check this one out.

Therein lies the rarity of The Legend of Heroes universe -- which contains three unique series under … Continue reading [REVIEW] The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III (PS4)
