More like RPG Coming This Week, am I right? I mean, there is one big release that we probably would cover if it didn’t support a certain prominent transphobe. Alas, let’s get on with the show!

Yggdra Union: We’ll Never Fight Alone (Entering Early Access) – February 5th (Windows)

If someone asked me to grant a rerelease to a single forgotten RPGs from the Game Boy Advance days, I don’t think I would’ve chosen Yggdra Union: We’ll Never Fight Alone, and that’s because I’d never heard of it until recently. I’ve picked up some random information about developer Sting’s Dept. Heaven series over the years (through our Retro Encounter episodes on Knights in the Nightmare, basically). and I understand they’re basically a string of standalone games with increasingly experimental mechanics.

Yggdra Union is a strategy RPG that some would say is one of Sting’s less unconventional titles, and it seems to be quite decent, going by our reviews. This remaster is coming out in Steam Early Access, and it comes with a ton of new quality-of-life options.

One of my favorite forms of entertainment is YouTuber reactions to video game music, and one of my favorite channels in this subgenre is Music Theory for Gamers. The host Dan is a music teacher, and he offers a fresh perspective as an outsider to video games. He just put out the first in a four-part series listening to the Final Fantasy VIII soundtrack, and it’s one of his best videos so far. Check it out if it piques your interest. Until next time, readers!
