Mercenary Kings coming to PS Vita ⊟
As are Ninja Senki DX (another game with a Tiny cameo!) and Tribute Games’ next project Curses n’ Chaos, according to a report from Destructoid. Mercenary Kings is expected to have Cross-Buy with the PlayStation 4 version. The console and PC versions are great, but obviously we feel like the game will work even better on a handheld.
Kero Blaster out May 11 ⊟
Drop what you’re doing and watch this. It’s the first trailer in a year for Kero Blaster, the new game from one-man Cave Story studio Pixel, and it’s looking hot.
There’s so much going on! It seems so much denser than Cave Story, but the music, graphics, and character movement all seem reminiscent. And, of course, the weapons.
This is being published in North America by Playism, on PC and iOS. It’ll be out May 11! So soon! Last year, Nicalis was teasing a 3DS version as well, but there’s no announcement of that today. Via Siliconera.

Mercenary Kings out today, put this trailer in your face ⊟
Watch this Mercenary Kings launch trailer once and pay attention to the animation. Then close your eyes and run it again, and pay attention to the music. Like, everything about this is top tier.
If you have a PC or Mac that can run games, lucky you! You can get it today for 25% off! You might want to hang onto the Mac version for a bit before getting too emotionally invested, though: “We’ve found a game-breaking bug in the MAC version and we’re working on fixing it ASAP, hopefully later today.”
Mercenary Kings out March 25 on PC, Mac, April 1 on PS4 ⊟
Mercenary Kings, Tribute Games’ awesome run-and-gun-and-craft will bring the Tiny Computer to life starting March 25 on PC and Mac (where it’s been available in Early Access for a bit) and April 1 on PS4.
If you’ve got one of those things, you should probably look into this game, as it looks bonkers. And the team at Tribute has a hell of a track record (Scott Pilgrim, Wizorb)!
Holy moly, Tiny is a boss in Mercenary Kings! ⊟
Whatttt? This is amazing! Tiny Cartridge is a boss in this PlayStation 4/PC game (though he’s more of a Tiny Computer here), and he has his own theme song, and you can shoot him with a cat-gun that meows.
This is becoming a tradition with releases from Tribute Games and its members, seeing as Tiny also appeared in Wizorb, Ninja Senki, and secretly — but not really because it’s just a coincidence — Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
Your new Samurai Gunn shirts ⊟
I can’t even play Samurai Gunn right now (so, so mad) and I still want one of these shirts from Attract Mode! Man, what a killer design by Jesse Tise, for one of this year’s best swordfighting games.

La-Mulana 2 could come to handhelds ⊟
Exciting! Nigoro and Playism just launched a Kickstarter for a sequel to La-Mulana. It’ll be made for PC if they hit $200,000, which they totally will, but the total we’re looking for is $1,150,000 – the stretch goal at which a handheld version, for PS Vita and/or 3DS, will be made.
In any case, I’d love to play this, and I’d love to get my hands on some of those rewards. Also I’d love to attend the streamed curry party Nigoro will have if they get $200,256.

Samurai Gunn out for PC right now ⊟
It won’t release for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita until some time next year, but Teknopants/Beau Blyth’s “lightning-fast Bushido brawler” is out RIGHT NOW for Windows computer machines.
Why you should pick Samurai Gunn up posthaste:
- It’s like a bloodier Smash Bros. with samurai (who also pack heat), with support for 2-4 players!
- How awesome is this new trailer?
- Duels by the sunset! Dudes getting beheaded!
- Music by Doseone!
- Logo by Maré Odomo and Cory Schmitz!
- Other Tiny friends (Adam Robezzoli, Lamar Abrams, and more) lending their voices as dying samurai!
New Mercenary Kings trailer ⊟
If I end up buying a PlayStation 4 this winter, it will be because of Tribute Games’ run’n gun here. It’s more likely, though, that I’ll grab the final version (there’s an Early Access build you can buy/try now) that releases for Steam/PC. Whatever, the point is that Mercenary Kings will be mine.
Hyper Light Drifter is coming to Wii U ⊟
It’s also coming to PS Vita! So at least it will be on one handheld. Heart Machine will also release this to other platforms like PlayStation 4, Mac/Linux/Windows, and Ouya, if you prefer playing on those things. It looks like a great game — you can get a copy for just $15 if you throw a pledge at its Kickstarter, which ends in a day.

This puzzle popped up in Scribblenauts Unmasked ⊟
It’s pretty great to see more games paying tribute to the Year of Luigi. Speaking of Scribblenauts Unmasked, I reviewed the Wii U version of the game at Joystiq!
