RPGamer got to look at Dark Deity from Sword & Axe ahead of its stealth release. It’s a welcome and somewhat familiar sight to turn-based tactical fans, with plenty of customization to keep the player coming back for more.

Dreamscaper is a roguelite action RPG combining the realms of dreams with an intimate modern-day setting. RPGamer was able to check out how developer Afterburner Studios has been improving the game since its initial Early Access launch last year.

Chashu Entertainment’s Sands of Aura takes players to a world covered in a sea of sand. RPGamer was able to try out a short demo and talk to some of its developers.

It’s easy to pick out the biggest inspiration for monster-collecting RPG Coromon. However, time spent with a demo and two of its developers shows that its full set of influences run a bit wider than that.

RPGamer takes a look at Ruin Raiders with a short demo. With adorable animal player characters and the occasional puzzle there’s more than meets the eye with this punishing tactical roguelike.

RPGamer takes a look at a demo for stylized mech combat game Wolfstride. Developer OTA IMON Studios definitely hits every note of a graphically compelling game with its unique comic-book noir visuals.

Anuchard is a cozy kinetic puzzle action-adventure game developed by stellarNull. RPGamer takes a look at a preview of how it has been shaping up as it gets closer to release.

Major News

Nintendo held a new Direct presentation for E3, which provided plenty of Switch RPG news. Shin Megami Tensei V gets a November release date and its first gameplay footage, DBZ: Kakarot comes to the console, and there are multiple Zelda-related reveals.

The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase provided a few surprises. Sci-fi RPG Starfield gets a release date, though still no gameplay footage, while The Outer Worlds 2 gets even less than that but we at least know it’s coming.

Though Square Enix made sure to keep expectations of its E3 presentation light, it still had some interesting RPG reveals. Most notable of them is Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin, an action RPG being created alongside Koei Tecmo’s Team Ninja.

Publisher Freedom Games held a showcase of some of its upcoming titles for E3. The presentation included RPGs Dreamscaper, Coromon, Dark Deity, Sands of Aura, and Anuchard, with Dark Deity getting a surprise release just a day later.
