Devolver Digital just wrapped up their E3 Press Conference and it was…everything you’d expect from them. They opted for a Nintendo Direct-style video stream, unabashedly calling it the “Devolver Direct.” It just involved a lot more swearing and gore. Here’s everything that was revealed:

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

They opened up with a new take on the Battle Royale genre. In Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, 100 players are trying to reach a crown at the end of an obstacle-filled level. Everyone takes control of a Fall Guy—a cute, colorful little blob who will stop at nothing to emerge victorious. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout launches on PS4 and PC in Early 2020. Check out the launch trailer below.

Devolver Bootleg

What initially appeared to be a bit ended up being a real product. Devolver Bootleg is a collection of games that Devolver Digital has ripped off from…themselves? Play all of your favorite games like Enter The Gun Dungeon, Hotline Milwaukee, Ape Out Jr., Shootyboots, Super Absolver Mini: Turbo Fighting Championship, Catsylvania, PikuBiku Ball Stars, and Luftrousers. Head over to Steam right now to purchase Devolver Bootleg for 1% off.

Carrion

The premise is simple, instead of trying to stop a giant tentacle monster from destroying everything, you are the giant tentacle monster! Carrion is described as a “reverse horror game” where you’ll control an amoeba-like monster that tracks down scientists and kills them, growing larger in the process. The game features a gorgeous pixel art style and looks like an absolute blast. Carrion hits console and PC in 2020.

Enter The Gungeon: House of the Gundead

Devolver Digital isn’t stopping at just one Enter The Gungeon spinoff, announcing another version of the game, this one exclusive to arcades. In Enter The Gungeon: House of the Gundead, you and a friend can team up to take down an army of the Gundead floor-by-floor. The arcade cabinet features beautiful art on the side panels and two guns, one for you and a fellow Gungeoneer. The $5,000 cabinet hits arcades (or homes if you want to purchase one) in 2020.

The Messenger: Picnic Panic

The upcoming free expansion to 2018’s hit game, The Messenger, finally has a release date along with a shiny, new release date trailer. The Picnic Panic expansion will launch July 11th on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC. Check out the new trailer below.

My Friend Pedro

The “Devolver Direct” ended the recent trailer that was released for My Friend Pedro, the upcoming game described as “a violent ballet about friendship, imagination, and one man’s struggle to obliterate anyone in his path at the behest of a sentient banana.” The game will be releasing June 20th on Nintendo Switch and PC, and is available to pre-order now with a 15% discount on both platforms.
