In the past year, City Connection has revitalized the Soldam and Penguin Wars series. The company now appears to be bringing back another classic IP: Psyvariar.

In an announcement covering this week’s news from the Nintendo Direct, Nintendo Hong Kong also includes a release schedule. “Psyvariar Restoration” is one of the titles listed. It’s on track for a July launch, though it should be released in other territories as well.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any details about Psyvariar Restoration just yet. The game originally debuted on arcades way back in 2000 (with other enhanced versions following later, including a new mobile version called Psyvariar Reassemble a couple of years ago) and featured vertical shooter gameplay. We’ll keep you updated on any news regarding Psyvariar Restoration in the future.

Dispatch Games posted a trailer today for Penguin Wars, which has just been announced for the west for “early 2018.”

The developer stated that the game is planned to become available for the US and Europe at the same time. You can check out the new trailer below.

City Connection brought a new Penguin Wars game to Switch this week in Japan. It’s a remake of the original title of the 1985 NES game, with overhauled visuals, online play, and more.

Although no announcements have been made regarding an English release, that could be changing at some point. Messages from Dispatch Games on Twitter suggest that something could be on the horizon.

This could just be Dispatch Games having a bit of fun and showing enthusiasm for Penguin Wars. Then again, Dispatch Games does have a connection with City Connection. The two sides worked together to localize Soldam: Drop, Connect, Erase for the west, including a physical version. If something is planned, perhaps an announcement will be made in the near future.

Thanks to James McKee for the tip.

The new Switch remake of Penguin Wars dropped on the Japanese eShop today. Get a look at a bunch of footage in the video below.

Thanks to Dispatch Games, Soldam: Drop, Connect, Erase is releasing in the west soon. Get a look at the localized version below.

Soldam: Drop, Connect, Erase won’t be launching later this month as expected. However, its release isn’t too far off.

Publisher Dispatch Games has announced that Soldam: Drop, Connect, Erase will be out physically and digitally in North America on October 10. News should also be shared for Europe “soon”.

Below is an overview of the different modes in Soldam: Drop, Connect, Erase:

Soldam: Drop, Connect, Erase is currently on track to launch in North America in September. While Dispatch Games hasn’t made it known officially, we’d be stunned if that window wasn’t met.

First, Soldam: Drop, Connect, Erase is listed for September 20 on the eShop. Other retailers like Best Buy and GameStop list it for September 26. The same goes for GameFly, which is often spot on with its listings.

City Connection hosted a live stream today and offered a first look at gameplay from the Switch remake of Penguin Wars.

Penguin Wars will be out in Japan later this year, and hopefully in the west later on. It’ll cost 1,800 yen.

City Connection prepared a new batch of screenshots for its Penguin Wars remake on Switch, which we have below.

Just like in the original, the game still has players throwing ten balls at each other’s sides of the field as they attempt to take down their opponent’s HP. One-on-one and two-on-two modes are in along with special rules, new music, and more.

Penguin Wars is due out this fall in Japan for 1,800 yen.

Famitsu published the first screenshots of the new Penguin Wars remake for Switch. We’ve got them in the gallery below.
