Weekend Announcements September 15-17th: Ben 10, Eternal Edge, Vesta and More

By Rebecca Smith, 3 months ago
We managed to bring you the announcements of Mystik Belle, RemiLore, Octahedron and MX vs ATV All Out over the weekend, but there were still a few titles that you won't have seen. Of the next five games, four will be coming to the Xbox One via ID@Xbox. We'll look at the non-ID title first:

Ben 10

We'd already revealed the existence of this game in July, but we knew little else about it. Developed by Torus Games, the title that is based on the new Cartoon Network TV series will be appearing on the Xbox One on November 14th. Ben, Gwen and Grandpa Max were on a cross-country road trip in the Rust Bucket. However, they've had to end their trip prematurely because of some inconsiderate super villains, such as Zombozo, Queen Bee, and the Weatherheads, and "their evil, world-threatening plans". Across three new playable epsiodes, players will be able to use all ten of Ben's alien forms to defeat his enemies with brutal combos. Their abilities can also be used to solve puzzles.


Cruz Brothers

DCF Studios side-scrolling fighting game tells the story of Coach Marcus Luz, whose reputation is destroyed when his best fighter is murdered by Tray Sorrow, the leader of a gang known as the Sons of Subversion. However, upon meeting brothers Felipe and Igor, he sees an opportunity to rebuild his life and his career. Whether it's fighting in the streets, illegal boxing clubs or the best academies that you can find, it's up to you to become world champion. The title will be coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 through ID@Xbox later this year.


Eternal Edge

Righteous Weasel Games action adventure role-playing game is supposed to be releasing on Xbox One through ID@Xbox next Sunday — we don't quite believe that so we've pencilled it in for sometime this month. When it does arrive, players will be treated to a game with modern graphics and gameplay but with a story reminiscent of the 16-bit era. Your quest to defeat evil while becoming a true hero. You can do this by customising your ability combos, discovering hidden classes and exploring the world to find level-ups.


Purple Chicken Spaceman

Little is known about Holmade Games upcoming "tough-as-nails cartoon 2D space shooter" except that it features a spaceman who may or may not be a purple chicken. At some point, you'll also face cats that fire lasers from their eyes and whose arms are detachable rockets. It might just be best to take a look at the trailer below for yourself. The game features a soundtrack by Parry Gripp from American rock band Nerf Herder and you'll be able to sample it for yourself when the game releases on Xbox One and Windows 10 through ID@Xbox later this month.


Vesta

Finalboss Games' upcoming title mixes elements of arcade games with puzzle solving. Players assume the role of Vesta, who finds herself in a post-apocalyptic world, more specifically in a complex that's managed by robots. Not only does she need to find a way out, she needs to find out what has happened to the world around her. She may be smart, agile and capable of handling energy, but she's not going to be able to do this on her own. Enter Droid, a strong and powerful robot who can do the things that she can't. You'll join the duo when the game is released on Xbox One through ID@Xbox later this year.


Will you be investing in any of these titles?
