The Fall Part 2: Unbound is out this February


Over the Moon has announced that The Fall Part 2: Unbound, will be hitting all platforms next month, specifically on February 13th, included platforms are PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, Linux and Nintendo Switch.



The Fall Part 2: Unbound is a hybrid of haunting metroidvania exploration merged with brain teasing point-and-click adventure puzzles and a healthy dose of chilling hard sci-fi. This sequel picks up right where its predecessor left off as we follow the exploits of A.R.I.D., a rogue AI who’s rewritten its protocol to follow one rule: “save myself”. The new parameters of A.R.I.D.’s programming have allowed her the ability to possess new hosts including a posh, reality-divorced Butler, a sexy service Companion and a mysterious combat drone, known as "One".

“With The Fall Part 2: Unbound, our goal is to give players a deeper level of gameplay and story integration than they have ever seen,” said John Warner, CEO of Over The Moon. “Our newest trailer highlights a strange and unsettling section of the game, during which players possess a robot designed to pleasure humans, only twist and manipulate her into hurting others to obtain their goal. We want this game to shock you, excite you, make you laugh, thematically challenge you and put you in situations you have never been in before. It’s our highest goal that video games can change people for the better, and The Fall part 2: Unbound is as rich with interesting ideas as it is fun to play.” 

The first part of the game originally released back in 2014, so it has been a while for the second chapter, are you on board?

Meet Nintendo Labo

Overnight, Nintendo announced that they will be announcing a fun new way to play with Switch, for kids and kids at heart and now we know what they are talking about, meet Nintendo Labo. 


Players will get to assemble a variety of cardboard creations, which take the Nintendo Switch and Joy-Con and use them in a range of ways. For example, you can build a functioning 13-key piano that brings your musical creations to life once the Nintendo Switch console and Right Joy-Con controller are inserted. As you play, the IR Motion Camera in the Right Joy-Con detects which keys are pressed and translates them into unique notes that are heard through the console. You can even take control of your very own motorbike by constructing a functioning set of handlebars, with a Joy-Con inserted in each side and the Nintendo Switch console cradled in the middle. Simply hit the ignition button, turn the right handle to engage the accelerator and watch your adventure unfold on the Nintendo Switch screen, as you race to new destinations.

“Nintendo Labo continues our longstanding mission of making people smile by surprising them with new experiences,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO. “It is an exciting evolution of the Nintendo Switch platform – one designed to inspire curiosity, creativity and imagination in people of all ages.”

Nintendo Labo is set to release on April 20th, with two kits, the Variety Kit and the Robot Kit, those looking for the Variety Kit will be able to pick it up for $99.95 and the Robot Kit for $119.95.

“We are excited to introduce Nintendo Labo, our new invitation for everyone to make, play and discover with Nintendo Switch,” said Kamon Yoshimura, Managing Director of Nintendo Australia. “We are looking forward to seeing how families and all creative minds craft new ways to play together.”


However for now, you can see what you get in each kit, the Robot Kit contains a large cardboard backpack and accessories, which turn you into a giant robot in the game.



The Variety set offers up lots of options, you can make an RC Car, House, Fishing Rod, Motorbike and Piano, check out them below.





Perhaps the most appealing thing is that the entire Nintendo Labo range requires no other skills, only some patience to put it all together. No scissors or glue is required, just fold and insert, but as its cardboard, you can decorate any piece anyway you want, with a special customising kit being released as well.
