This week we are expecting six new titles for Nintendo Switch. There is pretty good variety this week, so there should be something for just about everyone. Be sure to let us know which you are most excited about in the comments section below.
This one is a fun port that has added 10 new playable characters aka “heroes” for the Switch release. The overall concept is simple: Clear 88 levels within 88 seconds with one of 98 playable characters to save the world. This is an action-platformer that requires you to dodge, dip, duck, dive, and dodge your way through each level. This one comes with a $30 price tag on the eshop and was released today, 10/10/17.
TIny Barbarian DX is another fun action-platformer with retro-pixilated graphics. The game is episode based, with each episode having it’s own story-line and objective. The game was originally released in 2013 to very positive reviews overall and comes with a fan base excited to play it on this Switch. Tiny Barbarian DX comes with a $30 price tag on the eShop and was released today, 10/10/17.
This one is interesting as it takes traditional 1v1 fighting style and combines it with bullets and magic. You can battle with nine total playable characters. This is another one with a solid following who are excited to play on the Switch. Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle also carries a $30 price tag and was released today, 10/10/17.
Flame in the Flood was originally released for Xbox and Windows in early 2016 and received strong reviews. It is a wilderness survival game that requires you to farm for resources, craft what you need, and find a way to stay alive. You spend most of your time on foot interacting with the environment or people you come across. You spend resources crafting useful items to help you stay alive while exploring. Flame in the Flood will be released on the Switch for $15 on 10/12/17.
Wulverblade will see it’s initial release on the Switch for $20 on 10/12/17. This one has an adventure-filled campaign which was inspired by historical events. A co-op mode does exist locally as an added bonus. This is a scrolling arcade 2D style game and has a graphic novel feel to it, similar to 300. The campaign has a total of 8 levels and outside of the campaign there is a challenge mode which is arena-based.
Yono and the Celestial Elephants is a unique game which combines RPG, adventure, exploration, and puzzles. You play a baby elephant who is trying to save the world in a way only an elephant can. In this alternate universe, zombies, robots, and humans reign supreme. Exploration and completion of side quests are a must for this single player adventure. Yono will be available on the eShop for $15 on 10/12/17.
