Retro City Rampage DX will be further improved on Switch, teaser
Posted 2 days ago by Brian in News, Switch eShop | 5 Comments
As a way of tiding fans over until the release of Shakedown: Hawaii, Vblank Entertainment is putting out its previous game Retro City Rampage DX on Switch. It could end up on the eShop either this week or next week.
On Switch, Vblank noted that Retro City Rampage DX will feature even more improvements:
Like each port before it, it contains little tweaks that polish the game even further (I just can’t help myself!). From little things like the slightly more stylish score display, to improved enemy stomp and swimming controls, to improved lock-on targeting, and mission difficulty tweaks. If you couldn’t beat Death Cam VHS before, you’ll have a leg up on Switch!
As for Shakedown’s release, don’t worry! This surprise port hasn’t lead to any sort of delays with that. If anything, this’ll ensure that once ready, Shakedown gets through Nintendo Switch certification quickly, since our road’s been paved by RCR:DX.
We also have this teaser for the Switch release:

Tiny Barbarian DX boxart designed by Susumu Matsushita, retail copies to include full-color instruction manual
Posted 2 days ago by Brian in Images, Switch | 7 Comments
Nicalis unveiled the boxart for Tiny Barbarian DX today. It’s made by artist and character designer Susumu Matsushita, who created cover art for hundreds of Famitsu issues. He’s also the creator of the Japanese magazine’s mascot Necky the Fox, who appeared as a playable character in Super Mario Maker as a downloadable costume. Matsushita previously worked on the packaging for games such as Motor Toon Grand Prix, Maximo, and Adventure Island.
Nicalis also announced today that at retail, Tiny Barbarian DX will come with a full-color instruction manual that includes a featurette on the making of the boxart. It covers “Matsushita’s creative process, details his preferred art supplies, shows photos of him working at his drawing table and even identifies the 1960s rock instrumental that he listened to while he created the cover”.
Tiny Barbarian DX is due out in Q4 2017. Pricing will be set at $29.99.
