de NG:DEV.TEAM announces Kraut Buster

NG:DEV.TEAM announces Kraut BusterNG:DEV.TEAM announces the opening of pre-orders for its next game for Neo-Geo MVS: Kraut Buster. It's a run'n'gun game in the style of Metal Slug. The story takes place in Europe in 1936, John "Küken" Mallone and Jack "Handsome" Rowdy are part of the Kraut Buster corps, their mission: defeat the evil dictator Dolph Edelwolf and save all girls in the process. Kraut Buster is the first game from NG:DEV.TEAM which supports 2-player simultaneous gameplay. The 2-player mode is integrated within the game engine and will be re-used in the future for appropriate titles, nothing could make us more happy! This is what was missing the most in the productions of the German developer. The game will feature 3 routes of different difficulty, finishing the game using the normal difficulty course will take an average of 35 minutes during which the players fight 5 or 6 boss and sub-boss. Technically, the game will run at 60fps and will occupy approximately 784MBits of ROM space. The different levels will be quite long and will offer panoramic backdrops with parallax scrolling. Like most games of this manufacturer, the scoring system is chain based. The project occupies 2 full-time and one freelance pixel artists, one programmer/designer and one musician; the excellent Rafael Dyll. A video of the alpha version has been published on Youtube, the least we can say is that it bears a strong resemblance with Metal Slug (including the bloody aspect). But the game coming out this Winter, plenty of time remains to refine the product. The Kraut Buster cartridge is currently available for pre-order in two editions: the standard gamecenter edition in its cardboard box for €399 and a limited edition of 99 copies hosted in a shockbox with a CD of the soundtrack, 2 posters, a postcard and a set of bonus stickers. This deluxe edition costs €449. A spin-off of Kraut Buster using the same characters but played in a top down view will be released later.

jp Tekken 7 official release

Tekken 7 official releaseIn many Japanese game centers, yesterday was the last day of existence of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Unlimited because it was replaced today by... Tekken 7! Finally, here is the seventh episode in a saga which began 20 years ago, this one uses the Unreal Engine 4. Darker than the previous games, this opus closes the Mishima clan saga with answers to many questions about the rivalry between Heihachi, Kazuya and Jin Kazama as well as the origin of the Devil Gene. There are currently 20 characters that you can choose including 4 new ones: Katarina Alves (a Brazilian girl using French kickboxing), Claudio Serafino (an Italian man with mysterious powers), Lucky Chloe (an otaku girl in a cat costume) and Shaheen (Saudi Arabian fighter). Small spoiler; the boss of the fourth stage is Heihachi Mishima and the final boss is his deceased wife Kazumi (which is a non-playable character). Regarding the mechanics of the game, there are two main innovations: the Rage Art, which allows the player to execute several unblockable moves if his life bar is almost empty, which allows him to inflict up to 80% of damage to the opponent. Attention, this disables the power gain usually granted for normal hits. The other big feature is the Power Crush, which leaves the player continue his attacks even if he is hit by the enemy. Beware that he however receive damage from these attacks. Also new is the Screw Attack system which allows a player to keep hitting an enemy who has just fallen on the ground. A first in fighting games is the possibility for each player to choose on which side he fights (both players may start on the left side of the screen, which is traditionally reserved to player 1), there is also a practice mode to train the performance of the different movements. Local and online matches are possible. Winning a certain number of matches unlocks a Treasure Box containing objects to customize the character and save it thanks to Banapassport. A limited edition of 88 special Noir cabinets (88 of Mishima) with golden details equipped with Tekken 7 was available on February 18 (with limited game modes), but now is the day the game is available in all game centers. As usual with the Tekken games, additional characters will appear in the game over time. [Trailer][Opening]

be Warzone

WarzoneA new bar opened in Liège on March 6. Its name? The Warzone! Why are we talking about it? Because it features arcade games of course! You can indeed play Guitar Hero Arcade, The House of the Dead III, Space Invaders, Terminator 2, Sega Rally and Virtua Striker 2. There is also a Star Trek pinball there. But that's not all; the bar has an impressive decor with walls covered with graphs made by GrafoDeco and surprising decor elements such as a Han Solo in carbonite (yes, he was there all this time). Anyway, you understand that the place is super nice! Take a look at this Youtube video to get an idea. Located at number 36 of the rue de la Casquette, the Warzone is open from Monday to Friday from 10am until late and on Saturday from noon. Check the dedicated page on this website occasionally to monitor the arcade area and their official Facebook page to stay informed of the latest events. We wish them much success!

jp Time Crisis 5

Time Crisis 5Time Crisis 5 is out in Japan today and the international release will follow shortly. Time Crisis 5 features a very impressive cabinet with two 55" screens displaying 60 fps continuously! The main new feature is the new double pedal system that makes the game more strategic. Indeed, the two pedals (marked "Left" and "Right") are used to move between cover points to the left and to the right of the scene. This allows the player to kill enemies he is not able to shoot from the front. The reload system has not changed, the player just releases the pedal to take cover and reload. Pressing the same pedal allows him to recover and shoot in front of him, pressing the other moves him in that direction. At certain times of the game, the player must press the right pedal at the right time to successfully pass events (which vary between games). The gun is equipped with a side button to change weapons at certain times of the game. The player must then decide which of the machine gun or the rocket launcher is the most suitable for the situation. The current game is composed of three stages; a classic level in a holiday resort, a sequence aboard a heavily armed gunship and a motorcycle chase. A free update currently in production called "Time Crisis 5 True Mastermind Edition" will add 3 whole new levels. Time Crisis 5 introduces new VSSE agents (Luke O'Neil and Marc Godart) but the players come across old acquaintances like Robert Baxter (their mentor and VSSE leader), Catherine Ricci (VSSE support agent) and Wild Dog (who's always so nasty and has become partly cyborg due the many confrontations with the VSSE). The Japanese version of Time Crisis 5 is compatible with the Bana Passport. Players can obtain medals by completing certain conditions: make 100 headshots, finish the game without continues, make 15 continuous hits,...
