Gorgeous gothic action platformer Blasphemous gets September release date

Developer The Game Kitchen's beautifully grotesque "non-linear" action-platformer, Blasphemous, will be arriving on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Switch on 10th September, publisher Team 17 has revealed.

Blasphemous charts the hellish adventures of The Penitent One, an impressively pointy hatted fellow caught in an "endless cycle of death and rebirth". It's your job, as the dangerously bonced hero, to traverse the desolate, accursed kingdom of Cvstodia, smacking about some truly unsettling things with your barbed-wire sword, known as the Mea Culpa.

According to The Game Kitchen (which was previously responsible for wonderfully atmospheric Lovecraft-inspired point-and-click adventure series The Last Door), Blasphemous' "punishing" action combines exploration with the "fast-paced, skilled combat of a hack-n-slash game".

PES 2020 has officially-licensed Serie A

Konami's certainly putting its money where its mouth is: PES 2020 has an official licence for Serie A.

The deal means PES 2020 has all the official logos, trophies and badges from Italy's top league. Konami already holds licenses for Inter Milan and AC Milan, and exclusive rights for Serie A champions Juventus (which has forced FIFA 20 to rename Juve to Piemonte Calcio).

Konami's going hard on Serie A and Juventus this year, it seems. Juve midfielder Miralem Pjanić is on the cover of PES 2020 alongside Barcelona's Lionel Messi, for example.

Hotline Miami 1 and 2 bundled up for Switch

Hotline Miami 1 and 2 bundled up for Switch

Hotline Miami, developer Dennaton Games' critically acclaimed top-down shooter series, is making its way to Switch today in the form of a two-game bundle, the Hotline Miami Collection.

Hotline Miami's breathless blend of stealth and ultra-violent shooting action immediately won fans when the first series entry release back 2012, with plenty more praise being piled on the game's smart, surreal narrative and stylish fever-dream aesthetic, full of woozy neon visual and pulsing synths.

Dennaton did it all over again a second time in 2015, with Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number going bigger, stranger, and tougher, in almost every way - although inevitably, it didn't have quite the same impact second time around.

These discounted micro SD cards are perfect for Switch

MyMemory has discounted its entire range of micro SD cards, so you can find yourself a healthy saving if you're looking to upgrade your Switch storage space.

Sitting right in that sweet spot of high capacity and value for money is the MyMemory 256 GB micro SD card for £22.99. Considering a Switch has only 32 GB of internal memory, you can give yourself a considerable boost to your storage space for very little money. That'll leave you free to install, update and download games for some time, worry-free. Perhaps something that's just been revealed in today's Indie World showcase?

Of course, you can future proof yourself even further by plumping for the MyMemory 512 GB micro SD card for £59.99. It's quite a steep price jump compared to the previous card, but it would just about guarantee you never needing to think about space management on your Switch ever again. For some, that's reason alone to pay the higher price.
