Doom Eternal wraps up epic Doom Slayer saga in Ancient Gods Part Two DLC tomorrow
Doom Eternal is bringing its increasingly ludicrous saga to a close tomorrow, 18th March, with the launch of its second and final campaign DLC, Ancient Gods Part Two. Tomorrow's DLC doesn't just put a cap on Doom Eternal, however; it also brings an end to the story of the Doom Slayer first seen in 2016's Doom reboot, concluding with an instalment that, in among the usual hellfire and decimated cityscapes, leans hard on the high fantasy. As seen in the trailer below, Doom Slayer's journey to the Dark Lord's stronghold - for one final, epic showdown - takes him to cities nestled among sprawling forests and ice-capped mountain, impossible waterfalls at the end of the world, and there's even time for a dragon or two.

Inner World dev's beautiful narrative puzzler Minute of Islands has been delayed
Studio Fizbin, the developer behind acclaimed point-and-click adventure series The Inner World, has delayed the release of its beautiful narrative puzzle platformer Minute of Islands, meaning it'll no longer launch on 18th March as originally planned. Minute of Islands charts the adventures of a young engineer named Mo as she journeys across a procession of beautifully distinct islands, meeting new characters and uncovering forgotten secrets in an attempt to save her archipelago home from a disaster of ancient origins. Eurogamer's Christian Donlan was thoroughly charmed by Minute of Islands' early moments when he took the Steam Game Festival demo for a spin last month, calling it a "neat blend of exploration, traversal and puzzle solving", both fascinating and disquieting.

Axiom Verge 2 launching on Switch and as an Epic exclusive on PC this "spring"
Axiom Verge 2, the eagerly anticipated follow-up to developer Thomas Happ's acclaimed retro-styled Metroid-a-like, will be making its debut on Switch and PC - in the latter case as an Epic Games Store exclusive - some time this spring. Axiom Verge 2 - which was already four years in the making when it was announced last year - builds upon the original's elegant blend of familiar nostalgia-tweaking Metroid staples and clever twists with the likes of new characters, enemies, powers, and an entirely new world. Somewhere in Antarctica lies "what appears to be an ancient, alternate Earth, complete with mountains, lakes, deserts, and the ruins of a civilisation," according to Happ, "but you get the feeling that something else is lurking just past the fringes of reality, waiting to pull you in."

Cute Zelda-Style 2D Adventure Ocean's Heart Looks Like It's Switch-Bound
"Battle fearsome monsters and wield various weapons and ancient magic". We love a good Zelda-style adventure, so it's easy to see why Ocean's Heart caught our eye – the game's visuals call to mind the likes of Link to the Past and Minish Cap, and the lead character has another connection with the series thanks to her clothing, which looks a lot like Link's outfit in Breath of the Wild. Currently confirmed for release on Steam, Ocean's Heart is described as "an action RPG featuring detailed pixel art with a heavy focus on exploration" which takes place "in a lively world teeming with secrets and mysteries." You assume the role of Tilia, who is determined to find her missing father. Read the full article on nintendolife.com

There's a Serious Sam Collection heading to Switch next week
How much Serious Sam is too much Sam? Well, certainly not threemuch Sam, according to developer Croteam and publisher Devolver Digital; as of next Tuesday, 17th November, a triple whammy of Serious Sam first-person shooters will be heading to Nintendo Switch. The Serious Sam Collection, as the bundle will be known, includes Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter and The Second Encounter - Croteam's two spruce-ups of Sam's original adventures - as well as Serious Sam 3: BFE and its Legend of the Beast and Jewel of the Nile expansions. Serious Sam's typically frenzied old-school shooting action - which variously catapults players from ancient Egypt to medieval Europe and all the way into the future across the course of Croteam's first three games - will support local co-op for up four players on Switch, in both the main campaign and standalone survival mode.

Developer Rebellion has released first gameplay footage of WW2 shooter sequel Sniper Elite 4 running on Switch, ahead of the port's release on 17th November. Sniper Elite 4 picks up immediately after the events of its predecessor, this time taking the series' well-regarded third-person tactical shooting to Italy, 1943, where players can enjoy "sun-drenched Mediterranean coastal towns, ancient forests, mountain valleys, and colossal Nazi megastructures" - in-between bouts of Nazi busting, of course. The end result is an experience Eurogamer's Martin Robinson enjoyed rather a lot when he reviewed it back in 2017.

Review: HyperBrawl Tournament - A Fun And Frantic Arcade Handbrawler
The Beautiful Maim. Milky Tea's HyperBrawl Tournament sees teams of futuristic handbrawlers compete in chaotic 2v2 matches where they duke it out — literally kicking, punching, stabbing and hammering each other into submission — in order to stick a great big metal ball into each other's neon nets for a GOOOOOOOAL! It's Speedball blitzed with Rocket League, a cartoonish arcade sports effort whose quick, action-packed matches feel like a perfect fit for Switch and, while it may not quite reach the dizzy heights of its most obvious influences due to a couple of niggles here and there, it's a fun and frantic good time nonetheless. The story here, such as it is, sees future heroes from across the galaxy sought out by ancient protectors of the universe in order to prove themselves in the ultimate tournament, outscoring, outwitting and out-brawling each other in order to become masters of the Hyperforce.
