E3 was a big week for most publishers out there, but maybe none more so than Devolver Digital, who came out the gate swinging with news of four big releases in the near future. There's lots of ground to cover with everything the Hotline Miami publisher announced, so here we go.
First up, Ronin seems like it has potential to be a revolutionary new stealth title. Picking up and expanding on threads laid out by titles such as Mark Of The Ninja, Ronin is a turn-based stealth game. This adds an element of forethought and planning not previously seen in the stealth genre.
Next, Crossing Souls seems to be a deep action RPG that explores the theme of life, death, and childhood. It may seem heavy in nature, but there is a fair amount of combat and exploration to balance everything out and drive you through the narrative, which plays off of a nostalgic 1986 setting.
Third in the list of announced titles, Mother Russia Bleeds harkens back to classic arcade beat-em-ups while adding a layer of hyper-violence rarely seen in the genre. Up to four players will be able to participate in the epic beatdown.
Last, but not least, is Eiter, a top-down pixel-based dungeon crawler steeped in Norse mythology. The art design and world building seems absolutely beautiful, and we can't wait to get our hands on it to see if the gameplay holds up.
So there you go – lots to look forward to from Devolver over the next several months.
