The Taiwanese ratings board has done it again. Days after revealing that the superb Crimzon Clover is coming to Switch, we've got three new ratings for the previously-unannounced Liege Dragon, Redout: Space Assault and World of Tanks Blitz.
Liege Dragon is another JRPG from Kemco which aims to replicate the glory days of the 16 and 32-bit eras, while Redout: Space Assault is a sequel to the futuristic racing title. World of Tanks Blitz is perhaps the most exciting and is a free-to-play adaptation of the mainline World of Tanks title, which has been incredibly popular on other systems.
You can find trailers and info on each game below.
With Abigore, the Evil Dragon, coming back to life, the kingdom of Blaze was thrown into confusion. Yuran who has lost his memory witnesses a village being destroyed, and heads for the capital hoping to find something he could do in this time of destruction. Here begins an adventure to find the Dragon Tools of the Three Heroes, to confront the revived dragon and bring peace to the world!
Engage with hordes of monsters in turn-based battles, and make use of Sorcery Stones to learn skills! Attack enemies as a team using Unison triggered by the bonds between the allies. There are even more to enjoy in this magical adventure, such as various quests, weapons to upgrade, and a monster guide to complete!
Redout: Space Assault
AD 2395. Humanity is facing the most perilous, daunting and desperate task in its existence: fleeing Earth. Hundreds of satellites, drones and terraforming robots have been sent to the outskirts of the Solar System. Frantic research has been conducted in the last 150 years. Brave scientists and colonists have taken off towards inhospitable new worlds, often on one-way journeys, to build a new home for humanity. Now, tales of lush green landscapes, rivers and abundant resources run through the void on radio messages, from the Moon to Mars. In an unprecedented conflict with humanity on the brink of chaos, will you side with the brutally disciplined Colonization Fleet, or will you join the cutthroat rebel bands fending off for themselves, looking for freedom among the stars?
Redout: Space Assault puts you in control of a Super Orbital Recon Fighter during the Colonization: outsmart, outmanoeuvre, overpower, outclass your opponents in lightning-fast, adrenaline-inducing singleplayer and multiplayer space combat.
World of Tanks Blitz
Jump into a free-to-play MMO action shooter featuring a huge roster of over 300 massive tanks, stunning graphics, and intuitive touch-screen controls. Take on short, action-packed 7-vs-7 tank battles where real and alternate histories collide-no matter where you are!
World of Tanks is something that I might have been interested had it not been free-to-play. Don't care about Redout and doubly don't care about any Kemco shovelware.
I dig Space Assault. Pew Pew.
Redout looked good!
Blits and redout.
Played blitZ on PC well done game.
And serious interested in redout, reminds me of rogue squadron.
@BenAV agreed. I would so much rather just pay $10 or even $20 with enough content. As for the tank game, this is definitely a game of interest for me as long as it’s playable, not too difficult and fun.
@BenAV I thought these were the types of games you enjoyed to fill out your library between Nintendo's 2/3 first party games a year. Add to that backlog
@sixrings Shoo troll.
@BenAV Have you played World of Tanks Blitz before judging? There are a small amount of F2P games that are good enough to rival (and sometimes even surpass) paid ones. An easy example of that is Warframe.
I've played World of Tanks Blitz and the PC version on/off for the last 7 years or so and it's a pretty decent game. The main selling point for me in World of Tanks blitz is the short matches (2-5 minutes), the huge tank variety, and the semi-realistic take on tank battles complete with tank models with per polygon armor millimeter differences and basic penetration and shell type math formulas which make shooting enemies a little more complicated than just taking aim and firing. This does mean there's a considerable learning curve if you don't want all your shots to bounce off enemy tanks, which is not a fun experience.
It can definitely feel slightly P2W in the upper tiers, but its nowhere near excessive. You can easily take down terrible players in OP tanks if you are moderately skilled. (it's quite a common sight TBH, noobs playing OP "P2W" tanks) Its a pretty fun game overall, and the grindy aspect has gotten a lot better in recent months for new players. Though a lot of veterans dislike making that the F2P grind was made easier since it gets "noobs" faster playing top tier tanks, and veterans consider top tier tanks should only be played by great, experienced players.
Overall, I'd say this is as good a time as any to join World of Tanks blitz, offering an decent experience for quick bursts of fun. A great game for those who like slow, calculated fights.
@sgarcia-dev I don't doubt that the general gameplay would be pretty fun, which is why I said I would have been interested if it wasn't free-to-play. But unfortunately any sort of free-to-play model ends up completely ruining the experience for me personally no matter how good the game may be otherwise, even when it's just cosmetic stuff and even more when there's any sort of competitive advantage to be gained by paying money. Just not for me.
if redout has similar quality to everspace its a 100% for me
@BenAV I thought we were going for consistency around here.
@sixrings I love indie games. That doesn't mean I love every single indie game. I shouldn't need to spell that out for you. You're clearly just trying to be antagonistic.
@BenAV i thought these didnt look like generic third party same-y games... sorry.
Does Kemco actually make these low-effort RPG games themselves, or are they just releasing stuff that people build with some rpg-maker successor?
If it's the latter: cool of them to do that!
If it's the first: ow.
Tbh, at least this should mean that World of Tanks should be running well enough to be a pleasent experience
unlike Fortnite, i still think they should have used the Mobile version, switch would have handle that ez pz with better graphics and resolution
I would really like a good tank game. However the free-to-play and the MMO puts me off LOL I just don't like to play with others unless I actually know them.
I'd definitely pick up WoT Blitz if it comes to Switch. Then I hope they do the Girls Und Panzer collab again so I can buy the GuP tanks...again. Panzer vor!
Liege Dragon sounds interesting, but also a bit low on budget. Probably not, I don't know... I hope I become interested one day.
That Redout sequel is an Apple Arcade game, so I hope it shines on Switch.
World of Tanks... Blitz? I will probably appreciate it but why don't they instead make an effort with Nintendo to release a bespoke version closer to World of Tanks Valor, the console versions?
