We take a look at the upcoming PS Vita new releases in North America and Europe in May 2016.
Azkend 2: The World Beneath is a match-three puzzle game and presents you several different and exciting level styles throughout the adventure. You can also earn almost 20 unique powerups and over a dozen achievements. Choose your powerups wisely for each level to hasten your journey.
In addition, Azkend 2: The World Beneath has two challenge game modes called Time and Medals. The Time-challenge is a quick two minute bite-sized game where you’ll try to gain as many points as possible and gain fame on the leaderboards. In the Medals-challenge you can replay all the levels from the story and try to gain a medal from each one.
The action of Corridor Z takes place in an ordinary high school, where survivors have barricaded themselves in a classroom after the school has been quarantined by the military to prevent an undead outbreak from spreading. Through playing the game across two professionally-voiced parallel story lines, you will uncover the story behind the undead horror.
Stylized gory graphics and detailed animations create an angsty backdrop while the vibrant sound effects enrich the auditory experience. Players need to “control” the pursuit while running toward the camera — wield guns, place obstacles, and destroy zombies as you fend off hordes of ferocious zombies and defeat powerful bosses. Above all else, don’t get bitten!
In Neverending Nightmares, you play as Thomas, a weak young man with asthma who wakes up from a terrible nightmare. As you continue to progress through the game, you discover that he is trapped in a series of nightmares — each more hellish than the last. Your goal is to hide and flee from the terrifying apparitions that Thomas is defenseless against in order to finally “wake up” in the real world.
The game features a unique branching narrative where — depending on the paths you take — you end up in different nightmares with completely different and contradictory endings.
In Ray Gigant, players will be introduced to three heroic characters who share a common goal of saving their world, although they carry different sets of ideals. Each main characters, Ichiya, Kyle, and Nil, will have his or her own allies to help them embark on the battle against mysterious alien life-form invaders, Gigants!
Ray Gigant will reveal each of their stories through their own arcs which will all seamlessly converge by the end of the game. Players will determine the fate of these characters and their world on the PS Vita in just a few weeks.
In this hack ‘n’ slash Neptunia spin-off co-developed by Tamsoft and Compile Heart, you’ll fight through zombie hordes at the prestigious Gamicademi, customize character accessories, and even team up with friends in online Multiplay mode to take on more of the undead. Nothing like a little teamwork to show your school spirit.
The Last Blade 2 is an arcade fighting game originally released in 1998 in Japan and later for the Neo Geo, Dreamcast and the Wii Virtual console. Developed by Code Mystics, the new PS Vita and PS4 versions will feature local and online multiplayer as well as cross play functionality between the PS Vita and PS4, meaning players can duel against each other between both consoles. Furthermore, save data can be shared via cross save.
In addition to 12 returning combatants (including boss character Kagami from the series’ predecessor), four brand new characters and two hidden ones join the gorgeous roster of 18. Choose the character and fighting style that suits you the most, and prepare for an epic battle to seal Hell’s Gate.
Set sail with the Straw Hat Crew and collect your bounty in the most epic anime fighter this side of the Grand Line! Use Devil Fruit abilities, Haki techniques, and punishing combos to turn the tide in the ultimate One Piece battle royale. Step into the New World with over the top head to head combat featuring all the action, drama and comedy of the world’s favorite pirate saga.
Space Overlords is a 3D isometric action shooter where you play as one of four different space overlords with the mission of settling old scores against Kesedihan for her part in your and your brother’s incarceration. Take possession of planets colonised by this evil warlord who has ravaged all resources to feed her dominance. Waking up after years of captivity, your path of annihilation is about to begin.
