The second week of February is filled with plentiful adventures, be it in a French comic-styled village backdrop or a medieval setting. First up is Gravity Daze for the PlayStation Vita. The adventure game stars a teenage blond girl named Kat, who is in search of her identity in the town of Hexaville. She has the ability to control gravity within her area, thanks to a magical cat she finds at the beginning of the game. The game is under the direction of Silent Hill and Siren's Keiichiro Toyama. Gravity Daze will be out this Friday in its native Japanese language.
Next is EA, Big Huge Games, and Studio 38's foray into the role-playing game realm, with Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. The game's story is written by R.A. Salvatore, and features about 40-plus hours of gameplay in a brand new fantasy universe. The RPG also features a dynamic combat system that combines magic and melee attacks seamlessly, as well as the ability to modify a player's current class using the Destiny system. Kingdoms of Amalur is out on Tuesday this week.
2K Games Asia will be distributing Darkness II all over Asia on February 10. The game puts players in the role of mob leader Jackie Estacato as he takes up arms against his enemies using his Darkness powers. The first-person shooter features the concept of quad-wielding, a six- to eight-hour single-player campaign, and an online-only cooperative mode called Vendetta mode (playable offline only on single-player).
In addition to the regular version of the title, gamers can get a steel-book limited-edition version featuring in-game items, like alternate darkling outfits, custom artwork by Darkness artist Marc Silvestri, and a free digital download of The Darkness Origins comic in two volumes.
Last but not least is the 3DS-exclusive Resident Evil: Revelations. The game's story takes place after Resident Evil 4 and before the events of part five in the wake of a bioterrorist attack on the island city of Terragrigia. The title was recently praised for its atmosphere and action but was panned for its uninteresting new characters. Check out GameSpot's review for more information.
