The Silver Case

Created by SUDA 51 and localized by NIS America, The Silver Case takes place in the 24 Districts, where a series of bizarre murders occur. With roots in the visual novel side of things, gameplay revolves around text-based situations, point-and-click mechanics, and interactive questioning. We’re looking forward to experiencing this game’s two different scenarios, and diving into its rich tale.

Channeling the spirit of platformers of old, Yooka-Laylee was created by a number of former Rare employees. Starring the chameleon Yooka and the bat Laylee, it’s up to this dynamic duo to stop Capital B and Dr. Quack from absorbing all the world’s literature. We’re looking forward to diving into its colorful world, and also taking part in its local cooperative multiplayer.
