As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Button City is an adorably colorful narrative-driven adventure about friendship and community.

Welcome to Button City, a charming pastel town filled with lovable anthropomorphic animals who always put their community's well-being first. Fennel, the new fox kit in town, has discovered the local arcade and its hot 4v4 action game, Gobabots. After joining the second place Gobabots team to help them climb to the top and win the coveted Golden Gobabot prize, Fennel finally feels at homeā€¦ only to learn greedy businesscat Peppermint Pepperbottom wants to rob the local kids of their hangout.

Band together with friends and rivals alike. Sell lemonade to raise money, fill the arcade with Halloween decorations to spook the corporate fatcat, put together a robot to chase him out of town, and other ridiculous plans in the pursuit of saving the cherished arcade. Take on side-quests for cute animal friends, solve puzzles to unlock new ways of standing up to Pepperbottom, or take a break to play Gobabots as well as other arcade dance and racing minigames.

"The heart of an arcade is the community," said Ryan Woodward, lead programmer at Subliminal Gaming. "We wanted to capture all those aspects to complement what is ultimately a story of belonging and friendship. We're grateful to WINGS for helping us expand to consoles so friends can share the Button City experience together no matter what platforms they own."

Button City will be available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC in Q3 2021. It will support English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release dates will be announced at a later date.
