What: Nintendo




The new Pokémon roll-flaming game takes place in the past, when little monsters and humans lived completely independent of each other.

Experienced Pokmon players should be even more familiar with the battles that take place in Arsius because the combat system is the same as in the main series games. However, Wild Pokemon roam freely in the game world and fights start immediately, i.e. without loading screen in between.

In the new role-playing game, you will continue to visit the small town of Zufeldorf. There you can relax, complete page searches, report your progress and prepare for your next trip.

What: Decland




Dying Light 2: Stay Human, the successor to the survival horror game, released on February 4, 2015 and scheduled in Germany, is in the opening stages. In the open-world adventure, you slip into Aidan Caldwell’s shoes combing the post – apocalyptic period for his sister. After a mutant virus transformed much of humanity into devastated monsters, the world sank into chaos and was pushed back into the Middle Ages.

There are no weapons in this dystopian future, instead you have to fight hand in hand. After all, you are particularly lively and active in the sports world. It is reminiscent of games like Mirrors Edge – only in bloody and brutal games. By the way, players do not need to be afraid to re-schedule, says developer Decland. They have been working closely with German authorities to avoid this problem.
