from mid-air. With the introduction of devastating new attack skills and power-ups known as Hunter Arts, the action looks
more visually striking than ever before on Nintendo 3DS.

ability to now play as a Felyne themselves in the new Prowler Mode. In this mode, there are even more adventures to be had
in unique quests playing either as a Felyne alone or with up to three other companions in group quests. With hundreds of quests
in store for hunters and Felynes, there are tons of challenges to tackle in the solo adventure, and also multiplayer quests
via local or online play, opening up the epic world of Monster Hunter to players of all levels.

GUNFIGHT DUNGEON CRAWLER
‘ENTER THE GUNGEON’ SET TO RELEASE APRIL 5

The Gungeon – The noted pun artists of Dodge Roll Games and the firearm enthusiasts of Devolver Digital
have announced that Enter the Gungeon will launch on April 5 for PlayStation 4 and PC/Mac/Linux.
Enter the Gungeon is a gunfighting dungeon crawler following a band of misfits seeking to shoot, loot, dodge roll and table-flip
their way to personal absolution by reaching the legendary Gungeon’s ultimate treasure: the gun that can kill the past.
Select a hero to battle alone or with a fellow Gungeoneer in co-op mode as you blast your way to the bottom of the Gungeon
through a challenging and evolving series of floors filled with the dangerously adorable members of the Cult of the Gundead.
Gather precious loot, discover hidden secrets, and chat with opportunistic merchants and shopkeepers to purchase powerful
items to gain an edge.
“Enter the Gungeon dares to dream about what would happen if you shot bullets at bullets that were shooting bullets
back at you,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “Gun on gun crime is a real issue and I’m going to
exploit it for money.”
Brave Gungeoneers will be armed to the teeth with hundreds of unique weapons and items for dangerous encounters with legions
of gun-toting bullets. Handcrafted rooms combine to form procedurally generated dungeons and create a seamless new adventure
as players unlock new weapons, uncover new secrets, and meet new allies sympathetic to their struggle. There’s also
something called the Shotgun of Hate so get ready for that little gem.

the online cooperative battle mode, one of the key feature of the game. During Early Access, the studio will also invite the
community to take part into the game craziness and invent and propose the most unexpected weapons and hats. The best suggestions
will be added to the game.
Lubiterum announces that this Early Access is meant to be a short “polishing”

will have to survive huge waves of security agents using devastating weapons like watermelon bazooka or Coke & Mentos
Grenades. They will get to fight epic bosses and even ride a magical rainbow pig!
Joan Godoy, founder of Lubiterum,
says: “After months of development we are ready to spread craziness and chaos in the world. Our goal with Crazy Pixel
Streaker is to offer anything but fun. Just instant fun whether playing solo or with your friends. We inspired from old arcade
games to build the game with the idea to get players just to focus on kicking, shooting, laughing and, of course, running
naked into the fields. We want everyone to say “WTF is that game?” and then get stuck into our funny madness.”
Crazy Pixel Streaker will be available on Steam on march 2. The Early Access will be proposed at the
special price of 9.99€ / 9.99$.
