It does have a Steam Store Page, so feel free to wishlist it for now if you are on PC and don’t have a PlayStation 4.

Spelunky 2 tries to take the same experience from the original unique rogue-lite and tries to improve upon them. It will feature a huge adventure that is designed to satisfy both new and old players. In Spelunky 2, you will be able to meet the next generation of explorers as they will find themselves on Moon searching for their own family and treasures.

Spelunky 2 will feature a  way bigger world than Spelunky 1; it will have brand new areas, monsters, traps, and different types of items. It will also feature an extra dimension to make the world feel denser; it allows the players to access a second layer behind their normal playfield in Spelunky 2. Some of these might contain different ways to secrets like treasures, hidden passages, shortcuts, and other special places.

Spelunky 2 also has multiple ways through the ending, so your playthroughs can feel different. It will allow you to personalize your playthrough and add variety to it. You can also ride mounts in Spelunky 2 (like turkeys), which have special abilities. Your enemies can ride mounts as well, and the developers have also added New NPCs that you can either help, hurt, or ignore. You can do different things in each playthrough to make it feel like a unique story.

BPM is an FPS inspired by doom. All of your actions in BPM and the actions of your enemies match with the beat of the music. It’s a rhythmic shooter. Your enemies can perform a dance-like sequence of attacks to an epic rock opera. BPM was inspired by other retro shooters of the 90s too. It has fast, frenetic, and rhythmical gameplay. The devs have added double jump, dash, rocket jump, and bunny hop in BPM so you can evade your opponents in BPM your main target is to reach the end of randomly generated dungeons, collecting different weapons, abilities, and items every time you play these weapons and abilities can radically change the way you play which will make your playthroughs unique.

In BPM, you have to defeat seven bosses to reach the final boss. Every boss will move and attack in a different type of way.

In Dog Duty, you can control a squad of three characters and cause chaos you destroy installations and fight exotic and evil Octo-Army in an Open-World setting.

Dog Duty has taken inspiration from many classic games and TV series like Commandos and GI. Joe, they created characters based on the nostalgic memories from Developer Zanardi & Liza, Classic Villains like Mojo Jojo from the Power Puff Girls, and Dr. Eggman from Sega’s Sonic The Hedgehog played a massive part in the development of the evil octopus army in Dog Duty. Octo-bosses that players have to fight in Dog Duty have the same characteristics the octopuses lend themselves well to powerful and unique creatures which bring a healthy dose of humor and a lot of chaos just like the villains from 80s and 90s series the retro graphics, upbeat music, and fast-paced Real-Time Tactics style provide it an old school feeling to the players.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars

Super Mario 3D All-Stars | Nintendo Switch | Games | Nintendo

Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection is gonna release on September 18 as well.

It will feature an upgraded version of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy on Nintendo Switch. All of these games are considered classic, and some of the best platformers ever made. Hopefully, there are some big changes in this port.

It’s already short on supply, so we would recommend you to get it digitally. “We have just been notified of our allocation of Super Mario 3D All-stars (Nintendo Switch), and it is woefully short. This is very disappointing, and it is with great regret that we have to inform you that we will be unable to fulfill your order on the day of release. Further, as Nintendo and their UK distributors are unable to give us any reassurance that more stock will become available after release, we have taken the regrettable decision to cancel all orders.” -UK Retail Store
