MazM: Jekyll and Hyde will no longer be mobile exclusive
CFK has planned a worldwide PC/Switch release of MazM: Jekyll and Hyde, a mystery adventure title originally launch for iOS and Android in 2018. The game will be launched for the Nintendo Switch and PC (via Steam) on April 2, and supports English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese (Simplified/Traditional), French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Russian language options.
MazM: Jekyll and Hyde is the second title in the MazM series and is (obviously) based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It follows the novel’s storyline, supplementing it with beautiful illustrations, serious music, and diverse minigames.
The main playable character is Utterson, a lawyer who is Dr. Jekyll’s old friend. He is trying to track down Hyde, Dr. Jekyll’s beneficiary, which brings him to various areas of a gloomy 19th century London. He’ll collect evidence and bring to light Hyde’s secrets. You’ll also see the truth from other character’s viewpoints, including Hyde himself.
A D.M.L.C.: Death Match Love Comedy remake is on the way
First teased at last year’s Tokyo Game Show, Kemco has announced Death Match Love Comedy! It is a remake of D.M.L.C.: Death Match Love Comedy, a popular mobile title. Here’s the announcement trailer:
Described as “a school romantic comedy novel adventure game,” Death Match Love Comedy! follows a protagonist who is cursed to explode is anyone confesses their love to him. As such, he must avoid these confessions of love (he must be quite popular) while also confronting the school’s mysteries. It is set in the same work at Raging Loop, and features some of that title’s characters and settings.
Death Match Love Comedy! will be released in Japan on June 25 for PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4. The digital version will cost 3,000 yen, whereas a physical PS4 edition will cost 3,666 yen and include two Raging Loop collaboration postcards.
Check out this RE3 1999/2020 comparison video
I haven’t been into the Resident Evil franchise since… well, Resident Evil 3 as it turns out. As such, I’ve kept my eyes peeled for any news regarding the iconic title’s remake; I was thrilled when PlayStation and Capcom released this comparison featuring producer Peter Fabiano. The video explains how the remake recreates iconic moments, characters, and weapons. Take a look:
Resident Evil 3 is set in and around Racoon City, and follows S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine as she flees the city being consumed by rather horrifying creatures. A bio organic weapon named Nemesis is out to rid Racoon City of any S.T.A.R.S. members remaining, and Jill is his last target. Jill’s storyline overlaps with events from Resident Evil 2, from the early moments of the outbreak to a post-RE2 timeline.
A purchase of Resident Evil 3’s remake will include Resident Evil Resistance (four vs. one asymmetrical online matches, plus the ability to craft = challenges for others to overcome). The game(s) will be released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 3.
First-person physics-based puzzle title Relicta coming this year
Developed by Mighty Polygon and published by Ravenscourt, Relicta will be released this year for Google Stadia, PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. I bet you’re anxious to see a trailer, so I won’t let you down!
Creatively combine magnetism and gravity in order to unravel Chandra Base’s secrets. As a top physicist stranded alone on the moon, only you can keep your daughter alive.
