Switch eShop

In a new video, members of the Playtomic team talk about their favorite parts of Yooka-Laylee and tell their story of modernizing the 3D platformer genre for a new era. Check it out below.

Ubisoft has just released a free demo for Just Dance 2017 on the Switch eShop in Europe. The demo will allow you to play the song “Watch me (Whip / Nae Nae)” by Silentó.

A brief Switch eShop update: this week’s NeoGeo game will be ACA NeoGeo: Alpha Mission II. The game will be available to download on the European eShop this Thursday. Although it hasn’t been confirmed yet, it’s more or less guaranteed that the game will be available in other regions’ eShops as well on the same day. Expect the usual pricing of $7.99 / €6.99 / £6.29.

Following tonight’s maintenance, a new section has been added to the Switch eShop. The digital store now has a “Best Sellers” category (“Charts” in Europe) showing the best-selling games. The information is based on software with the most downloads over the past two weeks.

Initial charts are available for North America, Europe, and Japan. We’ve posted all of the information below (in our case we’re specifically posted the UK charts since Europe’s ranking is set per country), and we’ll be adding these charts to our usual lineup just like Wii U and 3DS.

V7 Entertainment readied a new trailer for Old Time Hockey. The game isn’t out on Switch yet, but it’s expected sometime in the near future. Check out the video below.

The Fall Part 2: Unbound was one of a few titles pictured in Nintendo’s big Nindies infographic from its February showcase. Today, developer Over The Moon followed up on that with an official announcement.

The Fall Part 2: Unbound will be on Nintendo’s new console, but plans for Wii U have been scrapped. Over The Moon said the following regarding the decision:

“We’re coming to the Nintendo Switch! This is great news obviously, but it also appears that Nintendo is switching (hah) focus to promoting that platform over the Wii U. For that reason we’ve decided to focus on resources on supporting the Switch instead of the Wii U. As indies, we simply don’t have the luxury of supporting a platform that’s clearly being sunsetted. I was confident that we’d make it in time, but everyone’s moving on to greener pastures and we’d be fools to stay behind.”

We’ve posted today’s lengthy announcement about the game after the break. A new story trailer for The Fall Part 2: Unbound can also be viewed below.

Streets of Rogue developer Matt Dabrowski has expressed interest in a Switch release. When asked about the chances of it happening, Dabrowski said porting it over is “a major possibility” and he’d “like to do it”.

Dabrowski told the fan:

“It’s a major possibility, I’d like to do it (Xbox and Ps4 as well) — need to look further into it, but since SOR is Unity-based, I’m not anticipating major problems on the technical end. Knock wood.”

Interestingly, Streets of Rogue is apparently published by tinyBuild. tinyBuild is already bringing Mr. Shifty to Switch, so perhaps the company would work with Dabrowski on a Switch version of this game as well.


At EGX Rezzed this weekend, Playtonic stopped by for a developer session. The studio played through the title’s opening stages and also talked about making the project in-depth. We’ve posted the full recording below.

We’re not yet sure what this week’s NeoGeo game on Switch will be, but we do already have news about next week’s release. According to a listing on the European eShop, Samurai Shodown IV is scheduled for April 13. It will cost $7.99 / €6.99 / £6.29.

Here’s a closer look at the listing:

AeternoBlade II was announced in late 2015. Corecell Technology originally intended to bring the game to 3DS, but those plans have since been scrapped. It’s now targeted for Switch due to the team incorporating Unreal Engine 4.

In other news, the art team behind AeternoBlade II has resigned. Corecell Technology will be looking for support from the community when it opens an Indiegogo campaign “soon”.
