Atomicom Unveils The Art of Switch Galaxy Ultra on PS4, PS Vita

10w ago - Atomicom Managing Director Gary Nichols unveils the art of Switch Galaxy Ultra on PS4 and PS Vita with details below.

To quote: Greetings - Gary from Atomicom here with an update on Switch Galaxy Ultra, our insanely-fast, reaction-based arcade game that's been developed as an update to our critically acclaimed PlayStation Mobile title Switch Galaxy.

We've been off the radar a bit as we had our heads down squeezing every last drop of art, code, and blood into the game and it's shaped up to be something we're very proud of. Both the PS4 and PS Vita versions are running in super smooth 60 FPS with the PS4 version at 1080p.

Both feature online multiplayer with two modes of play for up to four players, and we've incorporated cross play so you can compete against your buddies across PS4 and PS Vita. We also have cross buy and cloud save so everyone with a PS4 and Vita combo is getting a real treat.

Finally, there are also seven player ships, all fully upgradable and a ton of fiendishly fast levels - plus an endless survival mode. If that wasn't enough, we also have an awesome twenty two-page comic that unlocks as you play through the game. More on that shortly.

We've been working with WipeOut Co-Creator and Psygnosis art legend Jim Bowers, who has taken time out from...

13w ago - Namco Bandai Community Manager J Kartje shared a PS Vita video today announcing that Tales of Hearts R is coming to PlayStation Vita this Winter.

To quote: It's impossible not to hear the shouts of JRPG fans worldwide asking for the chance to play a Tales game on PS Vita. Your hearts resonated across Facebook, Twitter, and gaming forums everywhere. So without further ado, we're happy to announce that Tales of Hearts R will be making its way to North America in Winter, 2014.

For this special occasion, Hideo Baba, Producer on the Tales series, has prepared a video message straight from Japan. Keep an eye out for all the Tales goodies.

We've done our best to keep this announcement a surprise, and we're excited to see the fans welcome this new addition to the growing heritage of Tales games.

The adventure starts with Kor, a young man living in a small village by the sea. While watching the house in his grandfather's absence, Kor meets a young woman named Kohaku who has come searching for his grandfather.





However, a mysterious witch soon appears and casts a spell on Kohaku's Spiria, the embodiment of her heart and soul. Kor attempts to lift the spell, but while doing so he accidentally shatters...
 

Rain Games on The Art of Teslagrad for PS3 and PS Vita Platforms

50°
14w ago - Rain Games Developer Eduardo Garabito shared details today on the art of Teslagrad for PS3 and PS Vita platforms below.

To quote: Hi there! It's Teslagrad Minister of Propaganda, reporting again. We're going all out here, working on both the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game, and making progress.

And although it's too soon to talk about a release date (Soon enough!), it's a perfect occasion to discuss Teslagrad's art and influences - questions we've been asked repeatedly both in interviews and on our social networks.

Of course, having three different artists on the team for a "small" game ensures that there are different influences along the way. And no less important, the game's art is a core element of Teslagrad, as we rely on visuals to build a silent story.

Character animation is one of the features that jumps out at you when playing Teslagrad. In that regard, and as [Register or Login to view links] notes, we shied away from a clean, modern look for the animations for several reasons.





We knew we wanted to do the game in HD, with hand-animated characters, which is a huge task for a tiny team such as ours. We opted to do most character animations in 12 FPS...
