News about the upcoming Switch game LUNAXXX emerged from this week’s Famitsu a few days ago. Pygmy Studio has since sent out a few images and a small announcement about the project.

You may want to keep an eye on LUNAXXX, as Kenichi Nishi is involved. Nishi was the director of the first Chibi-Robo, not to mention a writer on Nintendo’s Japan-exclusive Wii title Captain Rainbow.

There’s still relatively little information out there about the action game LUNAXXX, though since it’s playable at BitSummit this weekend, hopefully we’ll have more to share soon.

Update: Bumped to the top. The controller and Switch case are now up on Amazon UK. Note that these do not ship to the US, but Amazon Germany is still an option.

Original: Amazon Germany is now taking pre-orders for the Splatoon 2 Switch Pro Controller. Get a reservation here. Worth noting, despite what the page says, we were able to place an order that ships to the US.
