A few months ago, V7 Entertainment announced that Old Time Hockey would be released for Switch. Something happened along the way, as those plans have since been scrapped.

Here’s an interesting exchange with one fan on Twitter:


We don’t know what happened here unfortunately. Other than the tweet above, we don’t have much in the way of an explanation.

This information comes from a Rebellion spokesperson…

“We’re aiming for complete feature parity with those versions. As of now, we don’t know what extra features [the Switch version] will have, if any. We’re still experimenting with the Switch platform. It’s still pretty recent that we got our kits. So we don’t quite know what that will be.”

– Rogue Trooper Redux will have online multiplayer for the Switch version, just like on other platforms
– Rebellion is aiming to launch all versions of the game at the same time
– This is Rebellion’s hope at the moment, though things can always change
– The new version of the game has been “remade from the ground up with current-gen-quality materials and higher resolution geometry”
– Rogue’s new look in Redux takes him back to the classic style of the comics
– Release date coming “soon”

Switch managed to sell 105,000 units in France at launch. Since then, the console has gone on to sell over 250,000 units.

Comparing that to Wii U, the older system sold 289,000 units by December 2013 (14 months). Switch did that in just four months.

Reggie on Metroid: Samus Returns…

“We wanted to make it clear that Metroid is an important franchise for us. As we think about how to satisfy the needs to the Metroid fans, we needed to make sure they understood there was a great console experience coming, in addition to Metroid: Samus Returns coming on Nintendo 3DS. That’s what we wanted to make sure it was clear that it wasn’t one or the other, that we were going to support both of our platforms with a great new Metroid experience.”

– Metroid: Samus Returns wasn’t included in the pre-recorded presentation for two reasons
– One of those being the the company has learned people seem more interested in learning about Switch (and other console experiences) first, at least at E3

– 2.5D style is meant to evoke the very first Harvest Moon game
– 16-bit Super Nintendo sprites have been replaced with 3D-rendered models
– The flat perspective and grid-based, limited range of motion are all straight from Harvest Moon on SNES
– Natsume is emphatic that the studio is doing its own thing with Light of Hope, not borrowing anything back from Stardew Valley
– There still aren’t same-sex relationships available
– Natsume will introduce these “when the time is right”

On how Nintendo has more developers now than ever before…

Fils-Aime … we have many more developers today working on our content than we did five years ago or even 10 years ago. Internal, right. Exactly. We’ve got that new development building in Kyoto that’s full of hardware and software developers. So we have a lot more development staff than we did at the beginning of the Wii U generation and certainly throughout the Wii generation.

On why Switch requires a phone for voice chat…

Fils-Aime: We actually think that the phone is going to deliver a better, more robust execution. In terms of the APIs that we can build into an app, the fact that phones are ubiquitous, the fact that it allows us to do much more rapid improvements and updates to the service, that’s why we think a phone execution—and specifically a mobile app execution—is going to be better for the consumer.

So let’s be clear. What you’ve seen is the execution by one particular supplier. That is not going to be the only solution.

It’s going to require a phone. It’s going to require a mobile device and be delivered by an app.

Nintendo introduced a new character for ARMS during its Treehouse Live stream today. We have a first look at Max Brass, who is described as the greatest champion in the history of the Grand Prix.

Max Brass will be out this month following an update. ARMS will be getting another update in July which adds a Spectator Mode.
