Placards footage

Placards is now available on the North American Wii U eShop. You can view some footage from the new game below.

V7 Entertainment is bringing Old Time Hockey to Switch, the studio announced today. The game “channels classic arcade style action”, complete with an “old-school aesthetic from the 70’s era.”

Here’s a brief overview of Old Time Hockey:

“Control schemes range from arcade 2-button controls, beer mode (one-handed) control scheme to more modern style. Play competitively or cooperatively on the couch with your friends in arcade mode, or take to the ice as the worst team in the Bush Hockey League in the hijinks-filled story mode!”

Old Time Hockey is heading to consoles starting in late March, but the Switch version is releasing “at a later date.” Find a trailer below as well as all ten teams in the game.

Axiom Verge landed on Wii U last year as an eShop download. Later this year, the game will be getting the physical treatment.

Thomas Happ Games is partnering with BadLand Indie on Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition. Buyers will receive a copy of the game, a deluxe booklet with developer commentary and art, double-sided poster, and an exclusive making-of documentary on DVD.

Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition is slated for Q2. It will be priced at $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99.

Matt Thorson has announced that his new game Celeste is heading to Switch sometime this year. Thorson was also behind the critically acclaimed indie game TowerFall.

The news was just shared on his personal Twitter page:


As for Celeste, it’s a new platformer about climbing a mountain. The game packs in over 250 stages featuring a wide variety of environments, including an abandoned city, ancient ruins, cliff sides, and a haunted resort. Some “quirky” characters will be encountered along the way.

It’s been a long road for Heart Forth, Alicia. Originally funded on Kickstarter in April 2014, development still continues today.

The team has plenty of months remaining before work on Heart Forth, Alicia wraps up. Despite that, the Wii U version hasn’t been cancelled. A Switch version also appears to be under consideration based on the game’s latest Kickstarter update.

The update states:

“The game now runs at a 16:9 aspect ratio instead of 15:9. When we went widescreen, we initially chose 15:9 to accommodate the 3DS’ resolution, but seeing that we didn’t reach the stretch goal and that the Nintendo Switch is coming out next month, we feel more inclined to set our sights on the Switch for an eventual port. The Wii U port is coming out as promised, so no changes there.”

Casual Bit Games has been working on Battle Princess Madelyn for quite some time. The action-adventure platformer still has a few months of development to go, but the upcoming title – inspired by the likes of Ghouls N’ Ghosts and Wonder Boy 3: The Dragon’s Trap – is now confirmed for Switch and Wii U.

Battle Princess Madelyn has ten levels, comprised of five stages each (and “some that are cunningly hidden). It includes replayable areas, “with many to unlock as each surprise heralds new challenges – as well as weapons and enemies.” All types of players can enjoy the game thanks to self-adjusting difficulty.

Regarding presentation, a professional children’s author is on board with hand drawn artwork bringing the game to life. John McCarthy of Nintendo Quest fame will be providing orchestrated audio while a retro style FM/PCM arcade style soundtrack will be present thanks to Gryzor87.

See what Battle Princess Madelyn is all about in the video below. The game should be finished by late 2017.

More Vaccine footage

More footage of Vaccine is in, now specifically showing the game’s Wii U version. Take a look at a batch of footage below.

As was recently announced, Ultimate Chicken Horse is heading to consoles. That thankfully includes Switch. We have Nintendo to thank for it happening (at least partially), since the game’s developer says the big N “pushed pretty hard” for it to happen.

In an interview with Just Pause, Clever Endeavour Games CEO Richard Atlas said:

“The Switch has been an obvious choice for UCH (Ultimate Chicken Horse) since we started hearing rumors of it as the NX. Nintendo is traditionally quite closed about information and working with indies, but they’re doing a better job now and have pushed pretty hard for us to come out on Switch. Now that the information about the console is public, it’s easy to tell why the game is perfect for a party system like theirs.”

Ultimate Chicken Horse should be on Switch this summer if all goes well.
