Teleporting Platformer Aaru’s Awakening Coming To PlayStation 4

Aaru's Awakening began its life as a school project at the University of Reykjavík and went on to win the Icelandic Gaming Industry Game Creator competition. The prize gave developer Lumenox the funds it needed to create a full-fledged platformer, and now it is making its way to to PlayStation 4 and 3.

In the game, the protagonist can fling his soul from his body to relocate elsewhere. You will also be able to charge through certain obstacles and double jump. All of the game's art is hand-drawn, and as you can see in the trailer and screens in the gallery, it looks very sharp.

Aaru’s Awakening is coming to PlayStation 3 and 4 this summer, and maybe Vita in the future, though nothing has been decided yet. Marketing director Johann Ingi Gudjonsson wrote on the PlayStation blog about a possible Vita version, "Nothing official yet. But the Vita has really good hardware, a crisp screen and controls that would fit Aaru’s Awakening really well. So although it’s not official we don’t see a reason not to port it over."

Meet The Newest Hero Inga

Lionhead has revealed a new hero for Fable Legends – the defender of the downtrodden, Inga.

Inga, seen above and in the gallery below, was a great defender of the bullied in her small town of Pitflea as a child. After an incident where she accidentally broke a young peer's arm ruining his dreams of becoming a blacksmith, however, she decided violence shouldn't be a solution. Violence found her unfortunately, when she found herself defending a nearby tomb of a Hero from a group of outlaws. In the tomb she found the magical shield Bulwark, which took a liking to her, and she has been a Hero ever since. You can read her full story by heading here.

Fable Legends' gameplay and mechanics are not yet totally clear, but we do know it is an online game where teams of four work together to leave their mark on Albion. You can read more about the game here. You can also head here to learn about Rook, another of Fable Legends' heroes.

Re-Enter The Metro With Three Redux Screenshots

Last week, Deep Silver revealed the extensive remake of 4A Games' Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. The titles, which will be available separately via digital delivery or in a retail bundle, are more than a visual touch-up.

As we mentioned last week, the Redux titles form a more cohesive experience. Both now feature game modes that allow players to take a more survival oriented path or one that is more action-focused. Mechanics, like the mask wipe from Last Light have been implemented in 2033.

You can see the announcement trailer here. Metro Redux (and the titles individually) will be out this summer for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

You Can Use The Stylus To Target Yourself Or Foes

The 3DS’ dual-screen setup and touch-sensitive screen introduce some interesting possibilities for Super Smash Bros. Thanks to game director Masahiro Sakurai, we have a better idea of how they’ll be implemented.

Posting on Nintendo’s Miiverse, Sakurai shows off a highlighting feature that can allow you call out your own character (for easier tracking) or someone on which you’d like to exact revenge. The bottom screen of the 3DS will feature the status for each of the characters. 

When you want to target the most vulnerable player, a quick look at the bottom screen and a tap of the stylus or finger will put you on the right track. Super Smash Bros. for 3DS will be out this summer. The Wii U version is slated for late 2014.

Comcept Releases First True Mighty No. 9 Gameplay Footage

Mighty No. 9, the Mega Man spiritual successor from original creator Keiji Inafune, is coming together. Developer Comcept has released the game's first gameply footage. Previously, Comcept released this footage, but it was very early footage, and was missing most of the game's art assets.

If you're familiar with Mega Man at all, this footage will look familiar – which is not a complaint. This is exactly what Kickstarter backers offered their dollars for.

Along with the gameplay video below, Comcept has also unveiled designs for two of the game's bosses. Mighty No. 2 and Mighty No. 5, which you can see above. The latter even makes a brief appearance in the gameplay footage.
