Next PostTormented Souls Is A Classic-Inspired Survival Horror Game
Zac CockenAug 06, 2020Retro Gaming News
PQube have revealed an upcoming survival horror game called Tormented Souls, which is heavily inspired by classics like Resident Evil and Silent Hill!
There’s no confirmed release date yet but we know the game is due to come out in 2021, and it’s coming to Steam, Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. It’s great to see that the classic survival horror games are still impacting games today, and this one has a few elements that you’ll be familiar with including a fixed-perspective camera, optional tank controls, and items to combine together in interesting ways!
Check out the Tormented Souls trailer:

Next PostLego NES Revealed
Lego and Nintendo have teamed up to create quite the lego set.
After announcing the Super Mario themed sets earlier this year, it looks like the partnership between Lego and Nintendo will continue, as we now have the Lego version of the NES. The NES set contains 2,646 pieces, and comes with more than the just the console.
Within the set, you’ll get the console, a NES controller, a cartridge and a retro TV that shows off Mario. The TV set also has a crank on the side which moves Mario between platforms on the TV, to really bring it to life.
You’ll be able to pick up the new NES set for $230 on August 1, the same time you can get the Super Mario sets, that is if you can get your hands on them before they sell out!
One of the best ever SNES titles, Donkey Kong Country, will soon be available on Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo Switch Online app!
Donkey Kong Country will join the already strong roster of classic games on the Switch Online app on July 15, along with Natsume Championship Wrestling and The Immortal for NES.
Three more titles will be added to the #NES & #SNES – #NintendoSwitchOnline collection on 7/15, including #DonkeyKong Country!

Remember you’ll need to be signed up to Nintendo’s online service to access the game and the rest of the library, but it’s quite worth it in my opinion!
Evercade fans, there will be a limited allocation per retailer – so we strongly recommend pre-ordering if you want to avoid disappointment!
We had initially planned to go live with the pre-orders at 10AM – but unfortunately some other retailers have gone live early, so we had to release early too! Anyway, onward with the Evercade carts!
#11 – Xeno Crisis and Tanglewood Dual Game Cartridge
The ‘Xeno Crisis & Tanglewood’ Dual Game Cartridge for Evercade includes 2 award nominated games. The cartridge will be supplied in a stunning collectable retro style physical case and full colour manual.
#12 – The Oliver Twins Collection
‘The Oliver Twins Collection’, featuring 11 games including: Treasure Island Dizzy, Fantastic Dizzy, Go! Dizzy Go!, Dizzy The Adventurer, Panic Dizzy, Wonderland Dizzy, Mystery World Dizzy, BMX Simulator, FireHawk, Dream World Pogie and Super Robin Hood. The cartridge will be supplied in a stunning collectable retro style physical case with full colour manual!
Once again, we apologise for the early launch of these pre-orders, ideally they would’ve gone live at 10AM – but either way, now’s the time to get your new cartridges locked in!
