Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Exile's End ends up on the Vita today

Exile’s End is a dark and futuristic 2D side-scroller that immediately brings back memories of Robocop and Shadow of the Beast to 16-bit era gamers. It offers a mix of adventure-style puzzles, tightly-controlled platforming, and dangerous aliens to take down. Through a combination of Marvelous, Xseed, Magnetic Realms and original PC developer Matt Fielding and his Japanese team, it is quite the all-star effort.

The game was developed as an homage to early ’90s action-adventure PC games, drawing heavy gameplay inspiration from classics of the genre as well as thematic influence from ’80s sci-fi films and anime. Boasting uniquely stylised cutscenes, multiple endings, and an atmospheric soundtrack by Keiji Yamagishi of Ninja Gaiden and Tecmo Super Bowl fame, Exile’s End will have players investigate a massive, interconnected alien world and experience a story filled with ancient riddles and modern-day hubris.
