Posted on January 8, 2018 by Jason Nason

Evgeniy Kolpakov and Sometimes You’s Energy Invasion comes to digital game stores this week. The game will be released in the PlayStation Store on PS4 and PS Vita tomorrow and will be released in the Nintendo eShop on Thursday.

Energy Invasion is an arcade game inspired by the classic Breakout. Unlike the original game, your ball does not break blocks on its own, but can launch missiles in a chosen direction.

The game features a lot of bonuses (both useful and harmful), bright graphic effects, levels with dangerous enemies, and a soundtrack from Nick R 61. There are 25 levels in “Invasion” mode, 25 levels in “Linear” mode, ∞ levels in “Endless” mode.

The game will retail in the Nintendo eShop for $3.87 CAD.

The latest fighter to join the upcoming brawler Dragon Ball Fighter Z is none other than a permutation of Goku, the rose form of Dragon Ball Super’s Goku Black. 

Namco released a brief trailer showing Goku Black using various Ki energy blade techniques including an energy scythe and an energy sword. Also included is a team-up attack with Shin that unleashes a devastating charged Ki ball. 

Dragon Ball Fighter Z will be released on January 28th – just three weeks away – for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
