It has sure been a while, hasn’t it? I haven’t written anything on here since April and haven’t done an update since last year, so it has definitely been some time. I had to take a break from games writing in general for a spell to tackle semester two of university and honestly, I missed it. So, I wanted to take a moment to update you all on all the changes that have occurred since our last update (there’s a lot).
After several teases the past few days, Super Rare Games have announced today that their latest partnership will be with WeirdBeard to release Tricky Towers: Collector’s Edition physically on the Nintendo Switch.
There will only be 4,000 copies available worldwide and pre-orders will open for the game on Thursday May 28th for a paltry £32.40 (approx $33 USD/36.27€) exclusively through superraregames.com, which I think we can all agree is a bargain, especially because all 6 DLC packs for the game will be included on the cartridge.
I’ve barely spoken about the incredible news about Numskull Games’ upcoming games, ad now the company have dropped another piece of huge news – they’re making an official range of merchandise for Borderlands 3. Oh, and surprise surprise, it’s all awesome.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve been keeping an eye on Numskull Games since they revealed themselves to the world a short time ago. With their focus on high quality merchandise, I’ve been looking forward to seeing how their game publishing ventures turn out, and I’m definitely not disappointed.
Numskull designs have really been knocking it out the park in the last year or so, with one flawless range after another. From Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot, to Devil May Cry and Resident Evil, they’ve nailed the feel to each franchise and given each one the care and attention most official merch wouldn’t even come close to.

In an announcement today that has me salivating more than that first zombie in the Spencer Mansion, Capcom and the amazingly inventive merch company Numskull Designs revealed the official Resident Evil 2™ merchandise range, that they are releasing to coincide with the upcoming launch of Resident Evil 2 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC next year.
I’d like to start with saying that this is not a paid article of any kind, I’m not receiving any monetary compensation, nor am I receiving products from Numskull Designs. I’m covering this because I personally love what Numskull Designs have done in the past and continue to do and to help out, in any way I can, one of the most pleasant guys in the industry. Got it? Right, onwards then.
As I’ve been covering fairly extensively in recent times, PQube is bringing the upcoming cross-over anime fighting game, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle to Europe. As previously discussed the game will release with a base roster of twenty fighters, with a further twenty releasing as DLC packs of three (excluding the second two RWBY characters, whom will release separately). This past Thursday, on the Arc System Works “ArcNama” stream, they revealed DLC character pack #3 for the game.

PQube are bringing the upcoming multi-franchise crossover, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle to Europe in the summer for Nintendo Switch, as well as for the Sony PlayStation 4. As the summer is fast approaching, both PQube and the developer of the game, Arc System Works, are going into overdrive with their steady reveals of information about the game. Yesterday, Arc System Works uploaded a new overview trailer for the game to their YouTube channel. I have posted it directly below, and will discuss what information I have gleaned from the (entirely Japanese) trailer.
This is not a paid advert. I’m covering this because I think it might be of interest to my readers, and I want to help out the newly employed social guy for the company (as he is awesome, follow him on Twitter here).
For those that don’t know, Numskull Designs have been making gaming-focused, officially licensed merchandise for a while, and it’s very likely that you have seen their products in your local game (they make those incredible PSOne retro game case coasters), on Amazon, and various other places.
