Two Point Hospital: Jumbo Edition delivers a healthy dose of absurdity

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

The PS4 launch of the Two Point Hospital: Jumbo Edition is here, and we can’t wait for you to experience the huge amount of new content coming your way. This is by far the biggest release we’ve ever done, including four huge expansions, two massive item packs, and a free update with some of the most popular community requested features. There’s never been a better time to grab a stethoscope and start building your very own healthcare empire!

Head to the Pointy Mountains with local celebrity, Bartholomew F Yeti, in the Bigfoot expansion, blaze a sterilised trail through the tropical islands with Wiggy Silverbottom in Pebberley Island, or take on the latest and greatest challenges in the two newest expansions to hit consoles: Close Encounters and Off the Grid.

We know, we know… “Aliens in a hospital game?!”, “eco-warrior politicians in a hospital game!?” It’s probably fair to say you might have some questions before you jump in to solve mysterious alien conspiracies, or help the Mayor make the county green again… for the very first time. So why not grab a packet of the cheesiest gubbins you can find and put your feet up while some of our lovely designers, Harry Puttock and Sam Webley talk you through the new adventures that await you in our beloved little Two Point County.

Close encounters

Harry Puttock: Alien conspiracies might sound a little “out there” for a hospital sim game, but we really wanted to go for something a little more fantastical and push the boat out, which is exactly what we did for Close Encounters. The basis of the idea came from our Creative Director, Gary Carr after watching far too many conspiracy TV shows on Roswell, Area 51 and the like. 

Sam Webley: Close Encounters has three brand new areas: there’s Goldpan, a small town where rumours of a UFO crash landing began, Camouflage Falls, a town that doesn’t really exist, housing a massive military base, and Chasm 24, a secret government facility. The levels really do go from strange happenings to full-blown government cover-ups as you get deeper and deeper into this crazy conspiracy.

Harry:Throughout the DLC you’ll be encountering lots of different space-themed illnesses. My personal favourite being Lack of Humanity, where you’re actually turning these aliens into people so they can integrate with society in Two Point County. It’s quite a nice twist, because the DLC starts by exposing these aliens that are trying to infiltrate your hospitals, and by the end of it you’re helping them stay here rather than sending them home. 

Sam: You can’t talk about illnesses in Close Encounters without mentioning Bowhine though. Patients with this illness ha

Bloodstained’s Miriam joins 3D arena battler Mighty Fight Federation

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Today I’m excited to announce – and take a first look – at a new guest character joining our 3D arena battler Mighty Fight Federation: Miriam from action platformer Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night! Miriam will be a free addition to the main game and available to everyone later this spring. As a reminder, Mighty Fight Federation is available now on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

Like our other licensed character guest stars such as Yooka-Laylee and ToeJam & Earl, Miriam comes with her own level and remixed music track. She will have one the largest movesets in Mighty Fight Federation, focusing on weapon and shard synergy, with many moves inspired by the entirety of the Bloodstained franchise. See her in action in the below trailer:

We worked with Bloodstained’s famed creator, Koji Igarashi, and his team to ensure we did Miriam justice, from her unique design to her wide breadth of weapons and Shard abilities. Both myself and the game’s creative director, Jullian Spillane, are incredibly excited to see what fans of technical-style combatants are able to achieve come her debut later this year. You can take a closer look at the in-game model below, and Igarashi-san himself found the time to share his excitement as well.

“Hello, this is Iga. I am pleased to announce that Miriam has been included in Mighty Fight Federation! Miriam is the protagonist of my exploration-heavy side-scrolling action game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. I am very excited to see what kind of fighting style she’ll bring to the table. Oh, and if you haven’t heard of Bloodstained, please check it out as well~ I wish you all have tons of fun playing both works.”

  • Koji Igarashi

Mighty Fight Federation is playable with up to four players, and console crossplay ensures that epic, chaotic clashes can take place locally or online. Comprehensive tutorials and training modes mean players of all abilities and fighting game backgrounds can hit the ground running, while veteran fighters can be sure they are landing every punch in this balanced and highly-competitive brawler thanks to its rollback netcode. 

Whether it’s one-on-one, a triple threat, or a fatal four-way, competitors can jump into the action and join the foray 24/7. The game boasts 13 outlandish characters (and more to come), each with their unique play-styles, combos, and special moves. It also has a killer soundtrack featuring music by Tee Lopes (Sonic Mania), James Landino (RWBY, No Straight Roads), Vince DiCola (Rocky IV, Transformers), and Manami Matsumae (Mega Man, Shovel Knight).

Mighty Fight Federation is available now on PS5 and PS4, so you can join the action while waiting for Miriam’s debut later this year.
