New Release Round-Up (August 25, 2022)
Welcome to RPGamer’s new release round-up. In this column we look to provide our readers with details on all of the RPGs released over the week. Please note we do not currently include Early Access releases where the game is still in development.
Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory
Fallen Legion Revenants
Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory is an upgraded combination of Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion (originally released on PlayStation Vita) and Fallen Legion: Sins of an Empire (originally released on PlayStation Vita). Both games follow the same overall story, but from two different viewpoints. The game features a side-scrolling view with a real-time combat system based on combos and counter-attacks.
Fallen Legion Revenants features a brand-new story as well as additional adventure-puzzle sections. The game is set in a world covered in miasma, with the remaining human population retreating to a floating castle. It follows two different characters: the rebel Lucien, who aims to influence proceedings in Welkin Castle, and Rowena, a fighter in the lands below and the recipient of Lucien’s aid.
I Was a Teenage Exocolonist
Narrative life sim RPG I Was a Teenage Exocolonist puts players in the role of a youngster living out their teenage years on an alien planet. It takes place over ten in-game years, with player decisions affecting the course of their life and the fate of the colony as a whole. The game features a card-based combat system that is loosely based on the rules of poker, with players able to use card effects to adjust their hand. It includes thirty endings, with twenty-five available jobs and ten dateable characters.
Queen’s Wish 2: The Tormentor
Queen’s Wish 2: The Tormentor is a follow-up to 2019’s Queen’s Wish: The Conqueror. Players control a child of the queen of the empire of Haven. After previously being tasked with reconquering rebel vassals as a rite of passage, players are forced to travel to the region of Rokaj while the queen is severely ill. The region is known for its brutal warriors and propensity to rebel, and players must prove themselves able to lead its populace and stave off a power struggle.
SD Gundam Battle Alliance
Mecha action RPG SD Gundam Battle Alliance covers a wide array of Gundam timelines through phenomena called Breaks, which allow for many different characters and scenarios throughout the series’ history to come together. Up to three players can tackle missions at a time using Super Deformed versions of famous Mobile Suits.
