Gamindustri’s CPU Goddesses wake up in a different dimension and find their nations are ruled by an unknown quartet who call themselves, Gold Third. Not only do they need to win back their nations and the hearts of their people, but they also have to protect Gamindustri from giant dark versions of themselves!

Take advantage of the “sharing-field” created by Uzume, to hop platforms, use special attacks, and formation skills to defeat these mysterious Giant Dark CPUs!

And here is an overview of the game:

Story

Gamindustri – a world sitting at the convergence of multiple dimensions. Of these existed the Zero Dimension, a world on the brink of collapse.

Zero Dimension’s last guardian, Uzume Tennouboshi, waged a war against a mysterious evil known as the Dark CPU. Her desperate cries for help crossed dimensions and reached Neptune, the CPU of Planeptune, who would leave her world to join the fight.

Their fateful meeting would open the path to a new adventure.

And once their world is saved, they’ll join you in yours!

  • Console Wars go Next-Gen – Transform into even more powerful beings with their NEXT forms, and take control of a different set of characters who want to run Gamindustri!

Closed Nightmare full-length trailer, screenshots

Live-action horror adventure game launches July 19 in Japan.

Closed Nightmare

Following last week’s teaser trailer, Nippon Ichi Software has released the first full-length trailer and set of screenshots for Closed Nightmare, its upcoming live-action horror adventure game for PlayStation 4 and Switch.

If you missed it last week, read up on the game’s prologue and key features below:

Prologue (via Dengeki PlayStation)

The protagonist wakes up in a dim and dreary room, and has lost all memories about herself. Her left arm is mysteriously paralyzed, as she is unable to move it.

There is a cellphone left in the room and it rings. On the other line is a child’s voice who calls herself Chizuru. “You are Maria Kamishiro. You are a participant in this experiment. I will tell you your role.”

Chizuru tells Maria in a mechanical tone of voice that if she successful in this “experiment,” she will be released, and then suddenly hangs up.

However, there is no indication of when the experiment will begin. Or perhaps it is already beginning?

At any rate, it is clear that you have gotten dragged into an unusual situation. While Chizuru’s goals are unclear, you have to find a way to escape from this place as quickly as possible.

Key Features (via Amazon Japan)

  • Presented Like a Live-Action Horror Movie – The event scenes of Closed Nightmare play out through live-action video. From the first-person perspective of the protagonist Maria, who is played by an actress, you can enjoy highly immersive fear as if you are experiencing it yourself.
  • Exploration Parts: Investigate Items and Clues – During exploration parts, you can investigate areas of interest in a room. Move the cursor onto objects and solve challenges to find clues. By using the items you obtain, such as the instant camera and IC recorder, you can acquire various information.
  • Challenge Parts: Unravel Various Mysteries – Several rooms exist within the building, and in each room are challenges. During challenge parts, solve their gimmicks and puzzles with the goal of escaping from the building. Occasionally maddeningly difficult games exist within “investigation games,” where you find the correct answer based on the clues you obtained.

Closed Nightmare is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch on July 19 in Japan.

The Zamasu and Goku Black fusion.

Dragon Ball FighterZ

Fused Zamasu will be the next character to join Dragon Ball FighterZ as playable via downloadable content, the latest issue of V-Jump reveals.

A fusion of Supreme Kai apprentice Zamasu and Goku Black, Fused Zamasu is the strongest god with the greatest strength and an immortal body, according to the magazine.

Some of Fused Zamasu’s special moves enable him to fly. After activating a special move, Fused Zamasu will shift to a flying state, which supports eight directions of movement on the joystick or d-pad.

His “Holy Wrath” special move fires a huge energy ball generated from his fingertips. And his Meteor special move, “Lightning of Absolution,” sees Fused Zamasu appear as if he is spreading his wings, and rains down thunder across a wide area.

A release date for the character was not announced.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
