Numskull Games Offers Sneak Peek At Upcoming Titles, Reveals RICO London

During today’s Numskull Presents virtual event, the studio offered a look at many of its upcoming titles – including the newly announced RICO London.

The second installment of Numskull Presents included several of the studio’s highly anticipated games, including Battle Axe, Bladed Fury, Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia, and Iris Fall. A few lucky viewers were also treated to exclusive merch, such as copies of Deadly Premonitions Origins signed by the multifaceted SWERY. Better yet, Numskull is still giving away free swag – to learn more, check out its official YouTube channel.

RICO London was the big reveal of the event and is planned to launch on all last-gen platforms and Steam this June. The game is a “fast-paced first-person shooter which sees you tackling the notorious and violent gangs of London.” You’ll be able to play through the procedurally generated levels solo or with a friend in co-op, splattering the gangs of London along the way.

The beautiful pixel art of Battle Axe was also on full display, with a lengthy gameplay trailer showing off the wonderfully retro title. Its soundtrack doesn’t play second fiddle to the graphics either, as it’s composed by the legendary Manami Matsumae who worked on the original Mega Man score. Battle Axe is scheduled to launch on last-gen consoles and Steam this April.

Numskull Presents also brought us new footage for the 2D action game Bladed Fury, tactical RPG Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia, and Iris Fall – a mind-bending puzzle game. A replay of the full event can be found here.
