Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes (Daedalic GmbH, 14th Aug 2019, £17.99) - Life at the convent school isn't easy for Lilli. Only her vivid imagination lets the shy girl escape everyday-drudgery under the stern, watchful eye of the Mother Superior. She diligently works through her chores, no matter how unfair they may be. Her innocent, imperturbable way of carrying out the orders of others has something both tragic and eerie about it. Any resentment, any childlike disobedience is buried deep beneath a seemingly impenetrable shell of sweetness.

VASARA Collection (QUByte Interactive, 15th Aug 2019, £8.99) - For the very first time, highly acclaimed Japanese Arcade Shoot’em Ups, Vasara and Vasara 2, are made available to the whole world via this package: VASARA Collection! Science Fiction meets History in these arcade classics which take place in an alternate timelime Feudal Japan where technologically advanced weaponry and equipment are a reality, and heroes use flying motorcycles with amazing firepower and fierce melee weapons to destroy their enemies.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (The Astronauts, 15th Aug 2019) - You play the game as Paul Prospero, an occult-minded detective who receives a disturbing letter from Ethan Carter. Realizing the boy is in grave danger, Paul arrives at Ethan’s home of Red Creek Valley, where things turn out to be even worse than he imagined. Ethan has vanished in the wake of a brutal murder, which Paul quickly discerns might not be the only local murder worth looking into. Inspired by the weird fiction and other tales of the macabre from the early twentieth century, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter aims to significantly evolve immersive storytelling in games.

GRANDIA HD Collection (GungHo America, 16th Aug 2019, ~$39.99) - Two quintessential RPGs have finally gone portable on one of gaming's most popular console/handheld hybrid platforms. The highly anticipated GRANDIA HD Collection for the Nintendo Switch is here.

Ittle Dew (Ludosity, 15th Aug 2019, £8.99) - Adventuress Ittle Dew and her sidekick Tippsie crash onto a strange island, filled with loot and mysterious inhabitants. It quickly dawns on the duo that this might become their biggest adventure yet. Ittle Dew boils down the classic adventure formula until there is only fun left.

Arcade Archives VS. GRADIUS (HAMSTER, 15th Aug 2019) - "VS. GRADIUS" is a KONAMI’s shooting game released in 1986. Control VIC VIPER to destroy the invading cosmic force BACTERIAN and save the planet GRADIUS. Enhance your machine with power capsules such as lasers and other options, and fight your way through all seven unique and exciting stages!
