Atlus has released its newest character-focused Japanese trailer for Persona 5 Royal. The latest video in the series focuses on Makoto Niijima, the student council president of Shujin Academy and younger sister of public prosecutor Sae Niijima. Like the previous videos, the new trailer shows a few of the new events involving her, as well as a new combination attack with Ryuji.

Persona 5 Royal will continue the game into the third semester of the school year in Japan, which runs from January to April. It will also add new locations, new events, new combat strategies, and other features. The game will be released in Japan for PlayStation 4 on October 31, 2019, before coming to North America and Europe in 2020.

Focus Home Interactive has released a new video for GreedFall, the upcoming action RPG from developer Spiders. In the nearly-four-minute video, lead writer and Spiders CEO Jehanne Rousseau and art director Cyril Tahmassebi talk about the game’s premise and the creation of its 17th century-inspired fantasy setting.

Set in a world ravaged by an incurable disease, GreedFall puts players in control of an explorer of Teer Fradee, a recently discovered island that may hold the key to curing the illness. Players will have to navigate the factions in this new world all while discovering the secrets of the island. GreedFall is set to be released on September 10, 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Digital Sun Games and 11 bit studios have announced that the Between Dimensions DLC for Moonlighter will be released for PC via Steam on July 23, 2019. The DLC will be available for $6.99/€6.99, with a console release to come at a later date. Between Dimensions will add new monsters that appear in the game’s current dungeons, while a new Interdimenional Dungeon will challenge players with numerous powerful mini-bosses. The DLC will include new weapons, armor, shop items, and accessories, and will add in new Trick Weapons that grant special powers but may also come with other, less desirable effects.

Moonlighter is one part shopkeeping and one part dungeon-crawling and follows Will, a shopkeeper who at night visits the nearby ruins for adventures and danger. During the day, Will manages a store, interacts with the other townsfolk, and can craft and enchant weapons. The game transforms into an action RPG at night with customisable loot, randomly-generated dungeons, and varied playstyles. The game is available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and those looking to read more can check out Charalampos Papdimitriou’s review of the PlayStation 4 version.

1C Entertainment and 6 Eyes Studio have announced that tactical RPG Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark will be released for Nintendo Switch on August 14, 2019. The game, which was released on PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in April 2019, will be available to pre-order from the Nintendo eShop from August 1, 2019.

Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark takes place in the world of Teora, where a powerful group known as the Council of Immortals, who once saved the land from certain doom, holds sway.

Nintendo, Koei Tecmo, and Team Ninja have officially released Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order for the Nintendo Switch. The release comes off the back of several announcements made for the game at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

The first of these announcements is that Loki is playable for the first time in the series. Following this was the confirmation that there will be free updates for the game following its release. The first of these free updates is set to arrive on August 30, 2019, and will contain two new playable characters: Colossus and Cyclops. Additional outfits will also be added to the game periodically through the first quarter of 2020.

The first DLC pack for the game’s expansion pass was also detailed. Centered around the Marvel Knights, the pack will contain a new story mode and four new characters: Blade, Moon Knight, Morbius, and Punisher. The following two packs will be themed around the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. These packs will not be available separately, only as part of the game’s $19.99 Expansion Pass.

Atlus and Vanillaware have announced that 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is set to be released in Japan on November 28, 2019. The game will be available exclusively on PlayStation 4. In addition to the release date announcment, more details were revealed for the game, including new screenshots, a new trailer, and some gameplay footage shown during a four-hour stream.

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim takes place after a catastrophe hits the planet following the arrival of large meteorite-like objects. The game follows thirteen protagonists, a group of teenage boys and girls who pilot large robots called “Sentinels”, with the game split into adventure, archive, and battle sections.

During adventure sections, players will look to solve mysteries using keywords picked up on convseration. These keywords can potentially change into different ones, which can then be used to pick up more keywords from other characters. Meanwhile, the archive section will let players revisit previous event scenes and reexamine the story so far. Finally, combat are strategic encounters where players use and organise four types of Sentinels in battles against large enemy creatures.
