Q.U.B.E: DIRECTOR'S CUT LANDS ON CONSOLES
The physics puzzle favourite special edition hits Xbox One, PS3 and PS4 this July
Prague, Czech Republic 15TH July 2015 Grip Games, publisher of shooter smash hit Tower of Guns, have finalised the console release dates for the much-anticipated ultimate edition of the physics puzzler connoisseur's favourite: Q.U.B.E: Director's Cut.
Q.U.B.E. launches on both PlayStation 3 and 4 in the US on 21 July, with the rest of the world following on 22 July, and will be available globally on Xbox One on 24 July. The WiiU version will follow in August. The price will be €$9.99 on all formats. On the PSN, the game supports cross-buy – purchasing Q.U.B.E on PS3 or PS4 gives you an instant free download on both consoles.
In Q.U.B.E ('Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion'), you awake in a mystery-packed spaceship, your only hope being the clever manipulation of a collection of physics-bending blocks, to discover all the secrets of the ship, and find your way home. In addition to the existing first-person platforming challenges, 3D jigsaws, bonus pick-ups and myriad of hurdles combining precision, logic and quick reactions, this new edition adds exclusive new levels including Against The Qlock, with time trials to win you a place on the scoreboard for friends all around the universe to applaud – or challenge!
A cross-platform hit on its original release, Q.U.B.E has been expanded and enriched in this all-new edition published by Grip Games and masterminded by original developers Toxic Games, who brought in award-winning industry legend Rob Yescombe, writer for Crysis 2 and Alien: Isolation, and actors Rupert Evans and Rachel Robinson, to bring a whole new level of immersion to Q.U.B.E’s mystery-filled narrative.
Grip Games' Jakub Mikyska said, “Everyone who became immersed in Q.U.B.E on its first release will be glad to return to face the all-new challenges, while gamers who have yet to experience the mysteries of Q.U.B.E have a treat in store.”

...doesn't seem to correspond to 'essential, you need it'. Maybe they should have gone with another word. (0 minute ago)
@Sdarts: Exactly. Essential should transcend the genre. Essential means that you need it. But writing in the prologue 'if you don't like JRPG, I can't help you'... (1 minute ago)
There's also The Last Guardian and Final Fantasy 15, if one counts the last 6 months. (2 minutes ago)
Someone should hit Inafune and ask what he's working on... ROFLOL Hideki Kamiya was so on point with his comment. (3 minutes ago)
From left to right: Gravity Rush 2, NieR: Automata, Yakuza 0, Tales of Berseria (told the combat was the best!), Nioh, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Persona 5. (5 minutes ago)
And then just in 2017 we have: [url] From Japanese developers. (8 minutes ago)
On the subject, anyone here remembers Keiji Inafune's quote about Japanese developers? Then he went to do Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z (sorry for mentioning it) and Mighty No. 9, real "gems". (9 minutes ago)
