PM Studios and acttil have set a final release date for Cytus Alpha in North America. Rayark’s Rhythm game will be available for Nintendo’s console on May 14, the two companies have revealed.

For the initial release, Cytus Alpha will include a special CD featuring music from [Chapter Ω]. The CD and game will be finely packaged using exclusive boxart with some of the game’s visuals.

PM Studios and acttil announced today that the rhythm music game MUSYNX is arriving in Europe tomorrow via the eShop. Pricing is set at €29.99.

To celebrate the European release, a new update will be going live worldwide. Version 1.1.3 adds 28 new songs, which are as follows:

OPUS: The Day We Found Earth
Mr. Rabbit
Gaokao. Love. 100Days.
You Are Right
final dash
Stardust Debris
Bloody Mary
One Way Street
8bit Adventurer
Travel like dust
When I wake up
Nobody Knows
When You’re away

Finally, to celebrate Opus Collection’s physical release in the Americas next month, the title song of the game will be playable in MUSYNX for free.

Though there hasn’t been an official announcement as of yet, it’s looking like Mantis Burn Racing could be receiving a physical release in the west. The game received a new rating from the ESRB not too long ago, with PM Studios listed as publisher. PM Studios has brought out physical versions of Switch eShop titles, including Voez and Mercenaries Saga Chronicles.

Mantis Burn Racing does actually have a physical copy, but only in Asia. Flyhigh Works handled the release in that territory.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

A few days ago, a fresh listing for Horizon Chase Turbo appeared on the ESRB even though the game has been available on the eShop for several months. It was a sign that a physical release could be in the works.

As has been speculated, Horizon Chase Turbo is indeed heading to retail. PM Studios and acttil, along with developer Aquiris, have confirmed that the title is going physical. We’ll be seeing it on North American store shelves this spring.

Horizon Chase Turbo is only available as a digital download at the moment. Back in November, Aquiris released its racer on the eShop. But could a physical version be in the cards as well?

A new rating for Horizon Chase Turbo recently appeared on the ESRB website. It’s noteworthy due to the company that’s listed as publisher: PM Studios. PM Studios has brought several eShop-only games to retail, including Voez, Musynx, Mercenaries Saga Chronicles, and more. It certainly looks like Horizon Chase Turbo could be one of its future physical releases.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.


It was announced last month that Cytus Alpha is hitting Japan on April 25. Today, PM Studios and acttil followed up with some news for the west.

Cytus Alpha, a rhythm game from Rayark, will also be launching this April in the west. A specific date will be shared in the future. That’s not all though, as a physical version is confirmed for North America, and the initial release will come with a special CD that has music from [Chapter Ω].

PM Studios and acttil today officially announced the physical versions of OPUS Collection, WILL: A Wonderful World. We’ve actually known about both for quite some time due to leaks from the ESRB and retailer listings.

We don’t have a specific date just yet, OPUS Collection is planned for April (with a voucher code for a downloadable bonus soundtrack included). WILL: A Wonderful World will follow sometime in May. Pricing is set at $39.99 each.

Thanks to a listing on Amazon, we now have the boxart for OPUS Collection: The Day We Found Earth + Rocket of Whispers. View it above.

OPUS Collection: The Day We Found Earth + Rocket of Whispers is coming to retail in early 2019.


WILL: A Wonderful World was given a new rating by the ESRB last month. It was a sign that PM Studios will be bringing the game to retail, though we didn’t have an official announcement. Although that’s still the case, we essentially have confirmation at this point.

Amazon and GameStop have both put up listings for a physical version of WILL: A Wonderful World. Given their track records, it’s safe to say that it’s happening. We just need the news from PM Studios officially – which shouldn’t be too far away.

If Amazon and GameStop are to be believed, we’ll be seeing WILL: A Wonderful World on store shelves in Q1 2019. Both list a tentative March 26 release date.
