‘The game takes place a week after the event of Persona 4 Arena, in fictional rural Japanese town of Inaba. Unlike in the prequel that focused on the TV World, the event occurs in the real world. However, due to the enemies’ interference, Inaba is shrouded by red fog and turns into a labyrinth that mixes with the places of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 such as Moonlight Bridge, Club Escapade, and Tartarus.’
Chariot – Xbox One
‘Chariot is a couch co-op platformer that can be played alone or with a friend. Players take the role of the brave Princess or her faithful Fiancé as they maneuver the departed king’s coffin-on-wheels through 25 levels set in 5 vibrant underground environments, with his majesty’s ghost giving them a piece of his mind every step of the way.’
Chariot is available to download for free during October as a part of Xbox’s Games with Gold.
Super Smash Bros. 3DS – 3DS
‘Like in previous games in the series, Super Smash Bros. is a fighting game in which up to four players use various attacks, techniques, and items to deal damage to their opponents. The aim of the game is for players to increase their opponents’ damage percentage, causing them to fly back further when attacked, and knock them out of the playing field. Returning items first introduced in Super Smash Bros. Brawl include the Smash Ball, which allows characters to perform powerful Final Smash attacks, and Assist Trophies, which summon various other video game characters onto the field to attack opponents or help in other ways.‘
