“Battle routine, set! Execute!!”

Hello PlayStation players, pleased to meet you. I’m Mr. Famous! I’m glad to announce that Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection will be released on April 14, 2023. I’m also excited to bring you a new trailer and tell you that you can pre-order Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection starting today!

Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection releases April 14, 2023

In this blog post, I’ll walk you through the latest information regarding the recently announced online gameplay features and additional bonuses included in Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection. Before that, allow me to introduce the Mega Man Battle Network series.

The Mega Man Battle Network series takes place in Network Society, where advanced network technology connects and powers everything from household devices to the infrastructure of cities. This system is typically referred to as “the Cyberworld” and has become a part of everyday life for the citizens of Network Society. 

People carry Personal Terminals, or PETs – mobile devices equipped with sentient programs called NetNavis. PETs and NetNavis allow people to enjoy the many benefits the network provides by “jacking in,” a process of connecting their PET to various devices.

Although advanced network technology has improved everyday life for many people around the world, it has also brought with it new opportunities for cybercrime. The protagonist, Lan Hikari, and his NetNavi, MegaMan.EXE, must work together to solve a recent wave of cybercrime incidents.

Battles ensue when you encounter sentient viruses in the Cyberworld. The player can move MegaMan.EXE freely within the red 3×3 grid while enemies move around in and attack from the blue area. MegaMan.EXE can use Battle Chips to his advantage when facing enemy programs as well! Battle Chips have several uses, including recovering HP, inflicting damage on enemies in unique ways, and much more. Jack in to the action of Battle Network and strategize when and how to use the diverse Battle Chips that are available to you.

The Battle Network Legacy Collection contains 10 classic games, including the different versions of the mainline games in the series, from Mega Man Battle Network to Mega Man Battle Network 6. 

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt PS5 features detailed

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

At CD Projekt Red, we’ve long said that the next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will harness the full capabilities of next-gen hardware. But what does that mean for the PlayStation 5? Let’s break down some of the features gamers can expect to see when the update comes out on December 14th.

There’s nowhere better to start than with the unique haptics available on the PlayStation 5! Engineering Director for Management and Audio Colin Walder wanted to ensure that the DualSense Controller’s capabilities were used to their full potential. According to Walder, “One way we were able to do that is by transforming specific elements of our audio into detailed shapes and textures of vibration that are perfectly synchronized with action in the game.” In practice, this meant combing through the game for relevant actions — not only those of Geralt, but the wider world as well to make sure players receive tactile feedback during their next journey through the Continent. Now, going underwater, picking herbs, winning (or losing!) a game of cards, and mounting a horse (to name a few) will all feel more realistic than ever.

“The developers approached this task in a way that would give the player a visceral connection to not only Geralt, but also throughout the wider Witcher world using the fantastic DualSense 5 technology,” Walder said. “Feeling every swing and strike, every casted Sign, and the earth under your boots is a real joy and coupling this with new immersive 3D Audio creates those added layers of immersion in ways we were never able to integrate before.”

For those encountering the game for the first time, we’ve got something for you! Or, well — if it’s been a while since you last booted up The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, you might find this handy, too. Players can now make use of PlayStation 5’s Game Help to view quest hints! Release Manager Artur Kepen, who worked closely with Sony to create the system, promised, “PlayStation Game Help will provide useful tips and tricks to both new and existing players! Should you get lost on your adventure, you’ll often find a video showcasing what has to be done to complete a quest or a screenshot of the area to properly mark your quest objective.” The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt features a sprawling open world, and this is one additional way of keeping track of where to go next.

Don’t forget about Activity Cards! Tracking your game’s progress has never been easier with the help of this handy PlayStation 5 feature. Jump straight back into the game with minimal loading times, and keep track of your journey as you and Geralt make your way through the Continent in search of Ciri.

Of course, bringing the game up to the standards of contemporary gamers also means introducing two new modes: Performance and Ray Tracing. Performance Mode prioritizes frame rate at 60FPS, while Ray Tracing aims for 30FPS and includes Ray Traced Global Illumination, enabling more realistic lighting, as well as Ray Traced Ambient Occlusion, enabling more accurate and effective surface lighting. To further bolster these graphic improvements, you can expect a host of fully-integrated community-made mods including 4K textures and models, immersion enhancements, and visual bug fixes. On top of that, we’ve added our own gameplay and graphical improvements. And of course, Photo Mode is now available to show off the beauty of the Continent. (Pro tip: Ray Tracing Mode is perfect for some truly breathtaking shots!)

Tactical roguelite The Last Spell is coming to PlayStation

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Hello everyone, I am Matthieu Richez, CEO and Creative Director of Ishtar Games. I am extremely pleased to announce The Last Spell, our tactical roguelite game, will be available on PS5 and PS4 in early 2023!

But first, allow me to introduce you to the world of this dark, painful and gritty game we created…

A few years back, The Last Spell was just an idea I had in my head, which I gave to Jacques Dedeken, the Art Director: an asymmetrical tactical game with a few heroes fighting off hundreds of monsters. This resulted in this first ever concept art of the game:

Now in 2022 the game has been polished a lot, especially during our Early Access which started in 2021. With this amount of time, care and help of our players, we have been able to bring the best game to every user, with more maps, more ideas and more possibilities.

Tactical & roguelite

The Last Spell didn’t change much from the original idea given to Jacques: you have to defend your Haven with your Heroes against a lot of monsters. At day, you can patch up your Heroes, buy weapons and create buildings, but at Night, you will have to fight.

Each map has a different number of Nights and your only goal is to stay alive as long as you can. The longer your Heroes live and fight, the more you unlock new weapons, armors, passives and bonuses for your next run.

During the Night, we want you to feel overwhelmed by the monsters, to live on the edge at each moment of your run. This feeling is increased by the work of our Composer, Rémi Gallego (The Algorithm), who made an incredible metal soundtrack for The Last Spell.

The Last Spell being a tactical, each Hero has their own action points, movement and mana, which means you need to be careful with each move you aim to do. One mistake, and your Hero may be in immediate danger of death… And this is speaking from experience.

We took a lot of time to design the control scheme for The Last Spell because we’ve tried to find the best way possible to play the game with a PlayStation controller. For example, we’ve designed a system to help you navigate quickly in the interface by using the Right Stick. We also made sure the combat phase can be played quickly and smoothly. Another important point for us was to have a dedicated button to display tooltips, because it’s our main way to give players information about something.

One Last Spell to save the world

The world of The Last Spell is a hard and painful one. The magical war destroyed everything and only a few Havens are still standing up among the ruins. As if it wasn’t enough, a dangerous Mist arises every Night, bringing dreadful monsters to your walls.

Hopefully, you’ve got a way to save the world. Or well, humanity has one: casting The Last Spell, a powerful incantation to banish all magic

The strength of bonds in One Piece Odyssey

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

In the story of One Piece Odyssey, Luffy and the Straw Hat pirates find themselves in a huge storm at sea and shipwreck on the mysterious island known as Waford.  One Piece Odyssey is a brand-new turn-based RPG featuring new characters and monster designs produced by Eiichiro Oda, the author of One Piece.

At our recent preview event One Piece Odyssey producer Katsuaki Tsuzuki framed the main theme of the game as a “Story of bonds, spun by memories”. It was also important to the developer team to create an “RPG that allows players to explore and adventure in the world of One Piece”.

Today, we’re excited to share ways that players will be able to strengthen bonds in the game and harness each characters’ unique skills as they immerse themselves in the One Piece world Tsuzuki and the rest of the team have created.

(Be warned, pirates, minor story spoilers ahead!)

Battle system

To start, we’ll cover the battle systems in the game and how the unbreakable bonds forged in battle are essential to beat your enemies. 

Tsuzuki: “In action games, it is necessary to focus and understand how to control a single character in each battle, to get that sense of satisfaction. However, One Piece as an IP has plenty of fascinating characters already in the “Straw Hat Crew”, so for our players to enjoy the unique charms of each and every one of them, we adopted a turn-based command battle as the battle system of our choice.”

Generally, RPG turn-based games have players set up all characters and locked in before executing the turn. However, One Piece Odyssey takes a different approach.

Tsuzuki: “We adapted a rock-paper-scissors element as its basic tactics, while also randomly positioning the characters into multiple areas. This is so that players can switch between various registered characters—and challenge them to make full use of each character’s unique abilities and skills to defeat the enemies at hand. This system provides a variety of situations they will face each time, which brings a fresh perspective on the combats they’ll endure along the way.”

In most combat encounters, the Straw Hats will scramble into different combat areas with the enemies, and up to four crew members will engage the enemy while the rest remain in reserve. Straw hats can be called in from reserve and may reposition freely as long as they have an action remaining. At times, the positioning of enemies may be challenging for your line up if more support-oriented crew members are rushed and surrounded by elite marines.  Since you’ll have the ability to switch between characters on your roster, you’ll be empowered to consider combat positioning, effectiveness type, Bond Arts, and potential secondary objectives in any combat encounter.

Effectiveness type

The Straw Hat crew and enemy NPCs are categorized into effectiveness types: Power, Speed, and Technique. Where Power is more effective against Speed type enemies and less effectiv
