Mantis Burn Racing is a game I really quite enjoyed, and one that is also a pretty decent way to make use of your Playstation 4 Pro and 4K television, should you have them.

Well, should you need an excuse to dust off your game, Mantis Burn Racing now has 2 new pieces of DLC.

The first DLC to talk about is Snowbound Pack DLC. The Snowbound Pack if free, and while it only includes 1 new location, because of the way the game only uses parts of locations as tracks, you're actually looking at 4 new tracks. Plus VooFoo Studios are also throwing in seasons 2 and 3 of the Veteran career mode (another 34 events) for you to play with, should you have got to the point where you ran out of content in Mantis Burn Racing (seriously, that career mode is pretty long)

There's also some paid dlc, the Elite Class dlc, priced at £1.99, brings lightning fast hover-cars to mantis Burn racing, so 3 new vehicles, plus a 12 event Elite career, so again, not bad if you're looking to get back in to the game.

The trailer for the Snowbound Pack is posted below

PQube have announced that they're bringing Fight of Gods to Steam, and while very little has been shown yet, the reason I'm posting about it is because of what it's not, being instead a Western looking 2D-fighter

Not that I've anything against Japanese, or faux-Japanese style 2D fighters, on the contrary I love them. In fact I'm struggling to think of a Western 2D or 3D fighter that would trouble my top 10 fighting games (or top 20 for that matter), but it is nice to see someone try something different.

Fight of Gods features the likes of Odin and Zeus battling it out, we're probably not going to see Allah v Jesus so don't get your hopes up, but the likes of Shin Megami Tensei have shown that gods do tend to have characteristics that lend themselves to being extrapolated for a game.

There's a trailer below, and Fight of Gods is due in the summer on Steam

I'm a little surprised there hasn't been a Wonder Girl before if I'm honest, it seems like something that would have been added along the way. Anyway, DotEmu have addressed the lack of female character in Wonder Boy by letting you play as Wonder Girl

Wonder Girl will be playable in the new HD Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, plus also the retro inspired version. There's a trailer below that shows her, and Monster Boy, in action

March has been a busy month already, but if you're after some over-the-top action racing, with stunts and, well, nonsense, keep a space for FlatOut 4: Total Insanity, because it's looking pretty good

Set to release on Playstation 4 and Xbone One on March 17th, FlatOut 4: Total Insanity looks like it's going to capture the spirit of the old games and return the franchise to form. Hopefully anyway.

There's a trailer below that shows off a few of the modes

Tokyo Twilight came to the Vita (and I think PS4) last year. It's a visual novel that centres around ghost hunting. We never got around to it but it was fairly well received.

Anyway, Tokyo Twilight is coming to Steam as Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs

Boasting a new 'Daybreak' scenario, and an improved battle system, this isn't just a straight port, which is always good to hear.

There's a trailer below, Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs is due for release on March 17th

2Dark, the new top-down survival horror from Frédérick Raynal, the creator of Alone in the Dark, is out fairly soon and is looking pretty good

Gloomywood have put out a video where they talk about their hopes for the game, why they wanted to make it. Most interesting is the promise of being able to tell adult stories. Survival horror can be a bit schlocky, so something more grounded and horrible certainly has its place

Like I said, 2Dark has started to look pretty promising, in a polygon-heavy retro kind of a way, give the video a look for what I think is a fairly interesting look at the game

Falcom classic Ys Origin is out now for the PS4. It's been out a while on other platforms (Steam, Vita), and perhaps that's why Ys Origin is launching a little cheaper than you might expect, but it's available today on PS4 with a free theme if you buy it off the store until 5th March

Priced at £15.99 Ys Origin is regarded as one of the better Ys games, and it might yet your appetite for the sequel coming later this year (more on that later)
