Xseed Bringing Old-School JRPG Brandish To North America And Corpse Party To PC

Xseed has announced it is bringing Brandish: The Dark Revenant to North America, and Corpse Party to a new platform with a PC release.

Brandish: The Dark Revenant originally released on PSP in Japan. The game was a 3D remake of the Super Nintendo game of the same name, minus the subtitle. The game follows soldier Ares as he battles his way through a multi-level dungeon attempting to outrun a sorceress.

Corpse Party is a horror adventure game that released on PSP here in North America. You can read our review of the game here.

Xseed has no release date or window for either game, but is promising trailers for E3 next week.

Our Take
I'm not familiar with Brandish, but it sounds interesting. I hope it gets a Vita release with trophies, as opposed to a PSP release, which would still be downloadable and playable on Vita.

Goat Simulator Developer Bringing A Story About My Uncle To Steam Later This Month

The next project from Coffee Stain Studios is looking to offer a much different experience than the comedy-focused zaniness of Goat Simulator.

A Story About My Uncle comes from developer Gone North Games. Coffee Stain Studios is serving a publishing role on the title. In the game, which is a non-violent first-person platformer, players use crazy inventions to explore strange environments to seek out their lost uncle. You can check out a trailer for the game below which launches on Steam on May 28.

Our Take
Coffee Stain Studios isn't developing this title, but it is attaching itself to it, perhaps in an attempt to show it is capable of more than just goofy games about goats with sticky tongues. I am a big fan of games where you can jump impressive distances, so this trailer has definitely made me interested.
