Kingdom Hearts 3

Kingdom Hearts 3

Kingdom Hearts three

After 14 years of endless spin-offs, the sport that Kingdom Hearts followers have lengthy been ready for is lastly simply over the horizon.

First proven off (in one thing resembling an actual type) all the best way again at E3 2013, one of many nice holy grails of video games that may by no means, ever come out is lastly proving us all mistaken. That includes a stellar new engine, a pile of latest gameplay mechanics, and a jolly host of latest Disney worlds (together with Massive Hero 6, Frozen, Toy Story, and Tangled), Kingdom Hearts III is shaping as much as be the most important, most formidable recreation on this entire wacky collection.

Additionally touted as the ultimate act of the Kingdom Hearts central storyline, which has spanned a minimum of 11 titles, Kingdom Hearts III is about to unravel, wrap-up, and reply each lingering plot level and query that followers have been puzzling over these final 16 years.

With just some scant weeks to bridge to the discharge of the sport on January 29th, can Kingdom Hearts III reside as much as the staggering hype that has lengthy preceded it? That’s a query we’ll little question be capable of reply very shortly. For extra, learn our hands-on preview from E3. (Mike Worby)

Luigis Mansion 3

Luigi’s Mansion three

On September 13, 2018, Nintendo launched an announcement trailer for Luigi’s Mansion three. Many didn’t know when to anticipate one other collection sequel title on a console. Frankly, it was unclear if we’d get a sequel title in any respect. Nevertheless, after a five-year hiatus, the busting of ghosts seems to be in full-throttle!

Scorching on the coattails of the controversial Luigi’s Mansion for Nintendo 3DS, the trilogy-capping Luigi’s Mansion three is being hotly-anticipated for its continued thrills and frights. Because the trailer depicts, Luigi will nonetheless be cautiously getting into buildings, rooms, and different places together with his trusty Poltergust system. Doubtless, he nonetheless gained’t be fairly as ready for scares to ensue throughout his ghostbusting shenanigans.

Whereas the trailer exhibits a little bit of gameplay and motion, we nonetheless are in the dead of night, or locked rooms, relating to the mechanics of the sport. Nevertheless, we could also be right in assuming there can be a much-desired evolution. Luigi’s Mansion laid the groundwork for the collection. The unique IP, scoring a 78 on Metacritic took Luigi’s keyed-up nature and would drive him into conditions the place he needed to overcome it to save lots of his overshadowing brother. Though disappointing to some for its brief size and lack of innovation, it was applauded for distinctive qualities and spectacular graphics

The sequel, Luigi’s Mansion: Darkish Moon, getting an 86 on Metacritic, took issues to the hand-held degree. Again on the job, the ghostbusting gameplay was nonetheless simply as tight, and even improved in some areas. Furthermore, the sport felt extra structured, with simple missions, and compelling puzzle parts.

Undoubtedly, Luigi’s Mansion three, based mostly on the prior improve to the collection, will construct on the already-solid basis. Furthermore, given it’s on console, I’d say it has much more room for progress. To all this, I need to say: Convey on the scares! (Brandon McIntyre)

Man of Medan

Man of Medan

With Man of Medan, the Till Daybreak staff returns to inform one other horror story in what’s the first entry in Supermassive Games’ Darkish Footage Anthology. As a cinematic, narrative-driven horror title, Till Daybreak took the gameplay and presentation seen in video games like like Heavy Rain and twisted it to inform a narrative that pays tribute to mainstream slasher movies whereas additionally absolutely embracing the silliness of the style. Man of Medan seems to do the identical, solely as an alternative of getting a cabin-in-the-woods setting, it travels far out into the ocean.

Man of Medan definitely seems to be like a worthy successor to Till Daybreak – solely this time, the story will probably be introduced in an anthology format with the primary episode following a gaggle of 4 younger People and their skipper who stumbles on board a ghost ship someplace within the South Pacific after a raging storm overturns their boat. Now, the crew should band collectively and work out a option to escape the haunted ship earlier than they succumb to its terrifying historical past.

As large followers of Till Daybreak, we right here at Goomba Stomp can’t watch for this recreation and we’ve got excessive hopes that it is going to be simply nearly as good, if not higher than Till Daybreak. (Ricky D)

Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus

Regardless of the business transfer to largely on-line experiences, we’re considerably spoiled for nice single-player shooters. The current Doom and Wolfenstein video games from Machine Games, the Far Cry and Shadow Warrior collection, and indie titles like Nightfall or Immortal Redneck have all stored the torch lit within the early days of gaming alight. One collection that’s completed extraordinarily nicely is the Metro collection, based mostly on the post-apocalyptic novels by Dmitry Glukhovsky, and after an prolonged hole, we’re lastly returning to the gorgeous hell of the Moscow underground.

Or fairly, partially returning, as from the 2 explosive trailers reveal that a lot of this recreation goes to happen topside, and the identify itself alludes to leaving Moscow looking for one thing higher. As soon as once more gamers might be filling the radiated footwear of Artyom, a younger however expert ranger who appears adept at surviving every thing the Metro can throw at him. There are monsters of each the beast and man selection, cobbled collectively weapons, and new to Exodus is the inclusion of huge, non-linear ranges that you simply’ll discover together with your punk-as-hell Russian steam engine. General it seems like what followers beloved from the collection continues to be going to be there, however this time it’s bringing much more to the desk, and that’s greater than sufficient to get enthusiastic about. (Andrew Vandersteen)

Metroid Prime 4 2019

Particular Point out: Metroid Prime Four

In what has been a harrowing watch for followers of Nintendo and Metroid alike, it’s been almost a yr and a half with none phrase about Metroid Prime Four. Now that Tremendous Smash Bros. Final has lastly launched and that Sony is lacking E3 for the primary time, 2019 appears an opportune time for Nintendo to disclose extra details about one among their most anticipated titles.

Given the divided legacy that Metroid Prime three and Metroid Different M left with followers, it’s probably that Bandai Namco will return to a staple of the primary two Prime video games: isolation on a singular planet. Each Prime three and Different M, in their very own distinctive–wildly different–methods, tried to diversify the collection, increase its lore, and reply questions that followers had posed for years. Absolutely anticipate for Metroid Prime Four to return the collection to its roots and give attention to guiding the participant via spot-on recreation design and subtext relatively than an expansive narrative or monotonic narration. Within the spirit of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Tremendous Mario Odyssey, one may anticipate Prime Four to embrace a big, extra interconnected world that feels much less geometrically synthetic than the rooms within the first three Prime video games did.

Regardless of the design behind Prime Four, the sport stays considered one of Nintendo’s most anticipated recreation in an in any other case wide-open 2019. Powered by a veteran developer in Bandai Namco and carrying with it the hopes and needs of Metroid followers in all places, Prime Four looms giant on Nintendo’s timeline for 2019. (Iszak Barnette)

Ooblets

Ooblets

Ooblets is the mishmash of Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon, and Pokemon that you simply by no means knew you needed. Developed by two-person workforce Glumberland (with the assistance of varied freelancers for some character fashions, music, and so on.) and revealed by Double-Nice, Ooblets’ biggest asset is its overly plentiful cuteness and allure. The sport is aesthetically just like each Slime Rancher and Journey Time—not essentially in artwork fashion, however in general tone and environment. It’s evident even in its early levels that Glumberland has carried out a splendid job of making a world that feels supremely inviting, foolish and comforting.

Except for simply feeling all heat and fuzzy inside, there looks like there’ll be a ton to do on the planet of Oob. Gamers begin out in a small city the place they will beautify and furnish their very own little houses and absolutely customise their characters. Everybody will get somewhat farm to each develop ooblets and meals for stated ooblets, although the ultimate variety of attainable ooblets has but to be revealed. After you have an honest get together you’ll have the ability to exit, discover, and problem different ooblets to bop battles! Many questions stay concerning the finer particulars of the sport (i.e. can you will have a house in each location? What’s the sport’s finish aim? Are there gyms or competitions like in Pokémon?), however the groundwork is already laid for what could possibly be a magical expertise later this yr. (Brent Middleton)

The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds

Fallout 76? Get out of right here with that shit. Starfield? By no means heard of it, mate. Bethesda appears to be unseated because the (decrepit) king of sci-fi RPGs in 2019 with Obsidian Leisure’s The Outer Worlds. Obsidian’s newest foray into first-person RPG-shooter might be the religious successor to Fallout: New Vegas many players have been craving for nearly a decade now, and a response to Bethesda’s (mis-)dealing with of the Fallout IP from that collection’ unique creators.

The Outer Worlds appears to be a bleakly-comical planet-hopping journey set on the outskirts of a colonized galaxy, with a concentrate on choice-driven storytelling to form how your journey pans out. The environments are harmful and delightful, emboldened by a radiant, alien color palette, and the settlements have one thing of a space-western theme.

My hope for The Outer Worlds is for a direct response to Fallout Four and its newer online-multiplayer successor, with significant storyline decisions, a number of methods to finish quests, and powerful writing and recreation path from cult-classic recreation builders Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky. If the sport may be polished, balanced and comparatively bug-free on launch, all the higher. See you quickly, area cowboys. (George Cheese)

Pikmin Switch

Pikmin

Anticipating Pikmin Four is a harmful proposal. Initially rumored as “very close to completion” by collection creator Shigeru Miyamoto in 2015, he once more confirmed improvement of the sport in 2016 earlier than two full years of radio silence. Now followers of the collection are left in a bewildering purgatory. Does Pikmin Four truly exist? Might Miyamoto have been referring to the middling Hey! Pikmin 3DS platformer? Was it initially meant for the Wii U however postponed after Nintendo deserted ship? Or maybe it was a standard sequel that Nintendo scrapped after deciding the collection wanted a Breath of the Wild-like reinvention? Solely time will inform whether or not or not it even exists.

But when it does…what may we would like? Properly, if it stays true to the Pikmin components, we’d like a for much longer marketing campaign than that of Pikmin three. Whereas Pikmin three was in some regards a near-perfect refinement of its predecessors, its 5 maps have been markedly comparable to one another and its enemies have been taken from previous video games and reused in a number of ranges. A wider array of settings, with setting-specific gameplay mechanics and situations, can be a welcome addition to the collection, and a broader array of enemy varieties might diversify the moment-to-moment expertise. I’d additionally wish to see higher elaboration on Pikmin three’s stellar mission and multiplayer modes, maybe with seasonal DLC trickled out after its launch.

And whereas we’re at it, some extra of the Pikmin 2’s outside-of-the-box degree and boss design can be superb. However the collection might additionally make extra elementary modifications, like turning into open-world-ish, completely integrating a co-op mode, or combining each of these concepts right into a kind of MMO. The sky’s the restrict for these peewee do-gooders. C’mon Nintendo, this can be a sequel value throwing 100/100 of your staff at! (Kyle Rentschler)

Pokemon 2019

Pokemon 2019

There’s not a lot that’s extra thrilling than a brand new Pokémon era. Recent with new pokémon species and an unexplored area to journey by way of, each new Pokémon recreation has the power to seize the kid in everyone.

What creates additional pleasure across the eighth era is the potential for some unimaginable options that Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee each showcased. Notably, wild pokémon freely roaming within the outdoors world with out an annoying random encounter, permitting the participant to select and select their battles. With this being the primary new era on the Nintendo Change, we will anticipate a stark improve from its 3DS predecessors, notably with upgraded animation and maybe even a bigger world to discover.

Curiously, there may even be an ideal tactical change for aggressive players. In X and Y, we had Mega Evolution, and in Solar and Moon, Z-Strikes turned the long-lasting addition. How Pokémon might shake up their video games additional continues to be a well-kept secret, nevertheless, we will anticipate some gimmick that may outline era eight, and very similar to the generations earlier than, it can turn out to be fairly the divisive mechanic amongst Pokémon followers. What could be predicted although, is it’s going to take even longer to finish our Pokédex! (James Baker)

Psychonauts

Psychonauts 2

The cult basic from Double High quality is again because of a crowdfunded effort by means of Fig, a platform that rewards backers with unique rewards and shares from a recreation’s gross sales. Tim Schafer and co. raised greater than $three.eight million to deliver the sequel to 2005’s Psychonauts to console and PC later this yr.

After lastly getting a sneak peek of the sport in motion at this yr’s Recreation Awards with a brand new story trailer, Psychonauts 2 seems to be every part you’d need from a sequel. Raz is again, and as ever he’s going to have to make use of his acrobatic expertise and psychic powers to navigate the damaging Motherlobe. It’s all very cryptic and unusual, and really a lot within the tone of the unique. (Ricky D)

Rage 2

Rage 2

Launched again in 2011, Rage was hailed by many as a supposed return to type for id Software program. Sadly, past the pre-release anticipation and launch hype, the sport did not stay as much as each crucial and shopper expectations. Though the sport featured a reasonably well-realized and expansive post-apocalyptic setting ala Mad Max, the lackluster gameplay, tedious quest design, and vacuous narrative by no means matched the standard of the environments. The sport was very a lot fashion over substance, and consequently, it was shortly forgotten. Within the wake of such poor efficiency, it got here as a shock to virtually everybody that a sequel was within the works and scheduled for a launch this yr. Nobody requested for it. Nobody needed it. But that’s precisely what we’re getting.

Using the identical considerably out-dated, dubstep/neo-rave aesthetics as Far Cry New Daybreak the sport appears to be priming itself to be an train in consciously “krazy” hijinx. Admittedly, it’s a refreshing change from the quite drab, arguably extra reasonable stylings of the unique Rage however there’s one thing about it that comes off as a closely focus-grouped concept of what’s cool with out the self-awareness to understand that it’s already handed.

That being stated, the sport does look promising. Set 30 years after the occasions of the primary recreation, the huge open world is packed filled with zany settlements lorded over by wildly distinct gangs and options gameplay thrills measured in explosions per second which must be greater than sufficient to maintain players occupied by means of the normal summer time launch lull. On no account is Rage 2 tipped to be my recreation of the yr for 2019, however regardless of that it’s undoubtedly a recreation that’s in all probability going to soak up a big quantity of my time in the course of the early a part of Q2 2019. ( Chris Underwood)

Resident Evil 2

Resident Evil 2

Launched in 1998, and receiving a number of re-releases, Resident Evil 2, like its predecessor, was one other basic amongst followers and critics. It winningly expanded on survival horror parts that made the unique recreation beloved, together with paranoia-inducing digital camera angles and terrifying bounce scares, in addition to its progressive narrative construction. Sequels got one other normal.

2019’s Resident Evil 2, in hypothesis for some time but revealed formally at E3 2018, seeks to protect the 1998 expertise whereas updating it for the sake trendy presentation and improved gameplay attraction. As producer Tsuyoshi Kanda stated in an interview with Polygon:

“. . . we’re respecting it as much as we can. There’s a legacy of the series following the same key beats. Not radically, completely changing it. But when we bring it to this kind of level of photorealism using the RE Engine, you’d have to bring some groundedness to certain aspects.”

Kanda additionally addressed the gameplay immediately. In trade for the tank gameplay and Resident Evil 7’s first-person gameplay, Capcom is choosing a third-person fashion, akin to Resident Evil Four. Kanda says the gameplay is “up close and personal” however that “it doesn’t lose that sense of claustrophobic horror that fans expect from the original game.”

That is all very thrilling to listen to for us RE followers. The unique RE video games nonetheless are a number of the scariest titles up to now. Whereas RE’s Four-6 did their greatest to offer some scares, they have been nice for his or her tense and exact third-person gunplay. Resident Evil 7 managed to recapture the claustrophobia in a first-person view, and all the higher for it. Now, we’re getting the most effective of all worlds. We’ll be gifted with nostalgia whereas additionally reveling within the gunplay that revolutionized the collection and up to date presentation. I really feel nothing however optimism for this upcoming launch!

For extra on Resident Evil 2, we extremely advocate testing our hands-on preview from Gamescom.  (Brandon McIntyre)

Sea of Solitude

If there’s one factor I’ll by no means get uninterested in, its narrative-driven video games. Whereas I take pleasure in visible novels and point-and-click adventures, typically you don’t want phrases to inform an excellent story. Sea of Solitude, one of many first video games to open up final yr’s E3, captures its viewers on visuals alone.

Putting colours, a moody aesthetic, and buttery-smooth animations completely seize the sport’s world. Like Sable, Sea of Solitude‘s hook is straightforward, but efficient. “When humans get too lonely,” says the sport’s web site, “they turn into monsters. That’s what happened to Kay. Now only monsters can change her back.”

Cryptic and engaging. Simply the best way I prefer it. (Kyle Rogacion)

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Having created a brand new sub-genre with the Souls video games, Hidetaka Miyazaki isn’t content material with simply rehashing his success. Now that the corporately-mandated Darkish Souls sequels are out of the best way, we’ve seen the famed director take the core of Souls and switch it into one thing fairly totally different. Bloodborne was the primary departure, although its design nonetheless stayed comparatively near Souls. However, it’s the second departure, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, that goals to really distinguish its gameplay from its predecessors.

Shedding the European mythology that the Souls collection often shrouds itself in, Sekiro as an alternative takes place in a world of sword-striking Samurais, highly effective Oni-like beasts, and different such perils of Japanese origin. The environments, from what we’ve seen in trailers and gameplay footage up to now are fantastically vibrant, which is odd to see after years of the broodingly darkish terror that FromSoftware has develop into recognized for.

Whereas its very primary foundations will nonetheless be reminiscent to Souls veterans, Sekiro allegedly goals to strip away most every little thing else, with the single-player solely title targeted extra on high-stakes motion, stealth, grappling-hook traversal with an emphasis on verticality. Hell, you’ll be able to leap! That alone modifications every part.

One other fascinating gameplay mechanic confirmed off has been what the clunky “Shadows Die Twice” identify refers to; the power to revive your self upon demise, which could make it sound simpler, however as proven in gameplay footage, the caveats to this mechanic are difficult and the sport is designed in such a method to punish overuse.

As well, Sekiro is to be devoid of most RPG parts, each when it comes to gameplay and story, missing a way to instantly level-up your character and even customise armor, and a extra linear story the place you play as a selected, fastened protagonist, not a customized character.

Whereas some may be nervous about these modifications, I personally consider it’ll be fantastic to lastly expertise what could possibly be thought-about the primary post-Souls “Soulslike” recreation from Miyazaki and his group, and one that’s one thing utterly new and totally different. Perhaps we’ll return to one thing extra “traditional” at some point, however for now, Sekiro’s spun-off enterprise is strictly what we’d like. (Maxwell N)

The Sinking City

The Sinking Metropolis

Once I first noticed the promo gameplay trailer for The Sinking Metropolis it was like witnessing one thing clawing and slithering its method out of a fevered dream into delightfully horrible actuality. I’m not probably the most avid of Lovecraft followers however I respect and admire his work sufficient that I’ve all the time needed to see it translated into an honest recreation. Most video games which have tried prior to now have all the time hit large of the mark, and Cyanide’s current tackle the Cthulhu mythos, Name of Cthulhu, was completely underwhelming in virtually each respect.

Frogware’s interpretation of it appears to be delving deeper into the spirit of Lovecraft’s seductively horrific universe than some other developer has beforehand dared. The Ukrainian firm’s prior document with a collection of usually well-received Sherlock Holmes video games places them in good standing to current an investigative narrative that blends humanity’s pure inclination to hunt understanding in addition to our propensity to dare ourselves to face our personal fears.

As a personal investigator, Charles Reed, gamers will traverse a gorgeously rendered model of a 1920s American metropolis that has succumbed to the devastating results of a catastrophic flood. The supernatural origins of this occasion grow to be all-too-clear because the waters have remained and with all of them method of weird creatures and paranormal happenings. Charles is about the daunting process of not solely uncovering the forces which might be driving the inhabitants of the town past the brink of madness but in addition with piecing collectively the shredded remnants of his personal life and thoughts.

With its emphasis on interrogative quest design meant to encourage gamers to comply with their very own path throughout the ruined conurbation, tense fight that conveys the desperation of a lone mortal towards the wrath of unspeakable gods in addition to surroundings design that demonstrates an encouragingly trustworthy adherence to Lovecraft’s gothic Victorian prose stylings, The Sinking Metropolis is a recreation I might be watching intently. That’s till the insanity units in. (Chris Underwood)

City

City was one of the crucial sudden bulletins of 2018. Recreation Freak has been tethered to the Pokemon franchise for many years, and although they’ve had small aspect tasks right here and there, this appears to be their first main deviation. It’d nonetheless be a fantastic RPG involving coming-of-age youngsters, however that’s about the place the similarities between City and Pokemon cease.

Up to now, all we all know story-wise is that the sport’s namesake loved peace for a few years whereas beneath the safety of a close-by fort. Now that monsters have appeared, gamers have to defend the village and uncover why that is instantly occurring. Recreation Freak have by no means been recognized for nice writing (maybe except for Gen 5), however seeing as your complete narrative takes place in a single location, I’m hopeful that they’ll double down on story and character constructing with City.

Such a small space to pour assets into additionally makes me optimistic for the sport’s manufacturing values. I’d be shocked if we weren’t capable of progressively construct the village up over time with numerous outlets and landmarks, or if seasons didn’t change every now and then. The smooth, colourful palette fits City’s anime-inspired artwork fashion fairly properly from the few snippets we’ve seen and, although Recreation Freak additionally isn’t recognized for his or her technical prowess, I’m assured that it’ll look all types of charming when it ships.

That is to say nothing of City’s fight mechanics (which appear to take from Octopath Traveler’s Break system), construction, or how villagers will pitch in that will help you battle off monsters. Right here’s hoping they fill in these and different holes in an upcoming Direct! (Brent Middleton) 

Untitled Goose Game

Untitled Goose Recreation

With each passing yr, video games appear to turn out to be extra complicated and critical. Typically it may be questioned if recreation builders even concentrate on the ‘fun’ facet of video games anymore. Moreover, a contact of humor can rework a recreation from good to nice’ preserving the participant hooked for completely totally different causes. Untitled Goose Recreation takes an previous man again to a time the place video games didn’t take themselves too significantly. An open sandbox that somebody can unwind to slightly than an intense affair of toil and hassle.

Maybe much more so, Untitled Goose Recreation is the sport individuals didn’t even understand they needed. Geese are recognized for his or her brief temperament, and with that in thoughts, indie developer Home Home has produced a recreation that makes use of these traits and given them devilish humor. The best way by which the goose interacts with the world and the people who stay in it’s set to be hilarious enjoyable. A give attention to teasing and creating distress for the native villagers, Untitled Goose Recreation might be the sport that helps an previous man reside his real-life fantasy of winding up the village, with out the real-life penalties. (James Baker)

Yoshi’s Crafted World

He’s lovable, he’s hungry, and he is available in quite a lot of totally different colours. No, I’m not speaking about Kirby. I’m referring to Mario’s favourite dinosaur pal, Yoshi. Yoshi’s Crafted World is coming to the Change this yr, and it appears to be taking plenty of inspiration from Yoshi’s Wooly World when it comes to the sport’s aesthetics. The whole lot within the recreation looks like it’s made out of some type of arts and crafts materials. It appears fairly lovely in movement and actually fits Yoshi’s character.

The gameplay itself provides a brand new mechanic to the standard egg throwing romp that Nintendo followers have come to know and love. Yoshi will have the ability to run on a number of planes within the foreground and background of every stage, creating an entire host of latest prospects for degree design. You’ll be able to even throw eggs onto one other aircraft that you simply aren’t at present on your self.

Yoshi’s Crafted World seems prefer it’s going to be one other cute journey crammed with distinctive concepts and fixed appeal. Co-op play can also be confirmed for this title, which is all the time welcome. It’s protected to imagine that this recreation will definitely not be specializing in a problem, nevertheless, Yoshi’s Wooly World did have some decently troublesome bonus levels, so perhaps these will return right here. Hopefully, Nintendo discovered from its errors with Kirby Star Allies and can concentrate on making Yoshi’s Crafted World a totally featured recreation from the beginning as an alternative of fixing it with updates later. (Zack Rezac)

Wattam

The world has been devoid of the oddly care-free, experimentally entertaining, mind bursts delivered to life by visionary recreation director Keita Takahashi for much too lengthy. His earlier creations like Noby Noby Boy and, extra famously, Katamari Damacy and We Love Katamari have lodged themselves onerous into the artistic consciousness of video video games by this time limit and area.

Formally revealed again in 2014, Wattam looks like yet one more entry in Takahashi’s catalog of constructive destruction. It’s arduous to discern precisely what goes round on this specific digital playground that Wattam takes place in, outdoors of the truth that we (no less than initially) assume the position of a mustached dice man referred to as “The Mayor” on our journey to “create joyful explosions” (as per the writer’s description) and study concerning the residents on the planet of Wattam (together with 3D poop dudes), which appears to function a main puzzle-solving mechanic. Perhaps?

One factor is for positive: You’re higher off anticipating a enjoyable, foolish time and leaving any preconceived notions of a “video game” behind. Takahashi’s worlds don’t precisely share the stage with typical gaming, and are higher off for that. Wattam, it appears, is about to fill out that area of interest simply in addition to its predecessors. And that’s an thrilling prospect. (Maxwell N)
