Old Time Hockey’s initial release took place at the end of last month. Unfortunately, the Switch version is quite a ways off.

On the latest Fragments of Silicon podcast, V7 Entertainment’s Mike Torillo indicated that Old Time Hockey will be coming to Switch this fall. The team has only done “super preliminary work” thus far, but updates will be posted on social media.

V7 currently intends to carry out an initial port. The studio will then follow up by looking into potential Switch-specific features. Nintendo has apparently shown interest in seeing what the team could do differently on their system.

You can listen to the full podcast and interview with Torillo after the break.

Update (4/5): Reaffirming why we have April Fools’ Day, the video description has been updated with a notice stating that this isn’t real. Guess they pulled a fast one here!


Original (4/4): Ankama has a new game lined up for the Switch eShop. Sometime in May, the studio will be releasing Abraca: Imagic Games.

Abraca is a local multiplayer party game. One player takes on the role of a hero (price / princess) while another three act as the bad guys. The hero needs to navigate through different levels as quickly as possible. Obstacles such as traps and enemies – including bosses – will be in the way. Naturally, the enemy group will be attempting to stop the hero.

Switch has another party game coming its way. According to developer Blue Sunset Games, Animal Rivals should be on the platform.

The studio wrote in a tweet:


We’ve included an overview and trailer for Animal Rivals below so that you can see what the title has to offer.

“Animal Rivals is a classic Party Game, but prepared to meet current standards and offer unique gameplay. The players will have a chance to play as different funny animals, that fight for the Animalonia’s throne. Each animal has his own desires and reasons to fight and uses their own way of fighting. But the tournament itself is not easy – contenders need to use their speed, cleverness and intelligence. Animal Rivals is perfect game for 4 players, that love to compete locally, just like in classic party games. It exists to provide players just what they need. Game presents a uniqe art style mixing the cartoonish looks and satire approach. So both the old and young gamers will find something for themselves. Great and healthy competition, challenges and fun are what Animal Rivals is!”

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.

Party Golf coming to Switch

Posted on 1 month ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 0 comments | 0 Likes

Party Golf, originally released towards the end of last year, is now heading to Switch. Developer Giant Margarita shared the news on Twitter yesterday.


Despite it being April 1 when the message was posted, Giant Margarita assures fans that it was not an April Fools’ Day joke.

For those who haven’t heard about Party Golf previously, here’s an overview:

It was back in 2014 when we first heard about Animal Gods. Still Games funded its project on Kickstarter, and promised a version for Wii U.

Animal Gods ended up releasing towards the end of 2015. About a year and a half later, it’s finally launching on Wii U. A listing on the eShop shows a date of April 6.

We have the following overview:

The Animal Gods have fallen. Once sacred, they are now husks—haunted beasts lost to toxic fumes from a great bronze industry. Play as Thistle, a small & agile warrior hellbent on destroying the curse that plagues these creatures. Wield a 17th century BC Bronze Sword… and set the Gods free.

Key Features

Cloak of Flame
Dash / warp through toxic-maze like rivers. Dashing moves Thistle a fixed distance over a fixed amount of time and upgrades to The Long Dash.

Map of The Unholy
Lets you choose dungeons in any order. Journey to the Gardens of Gwyn, the Halls of Eynd, and the Coast of Syn. Find the weapon and weapon upgrade in each dungeon to defeat the Animal Gods.

Light Puzzling
Puzzles rely on approximately 75% skill and 25% strategy. Each dungeon asks players to assess the obstacle ahead and approach cautiously. Puzzles are largely skill-based requiring a hint of strategy and luck.

Character Driven Story
Find notes left by occult-leader Rodrik, starry-eyed Juliette and Scientist Sven. Animal Gods’ story balances the relationship between three key characters and their ties to the dark underbelly of the City of Sky Mirror.

Lives-09-Mode
09-Lives mode unlocks after successfully completing Animal Gods on “normal” and challenges you to complete dungeons with 09-lives or less.

And some screenshots:

Graceful Explosion Machine is making its way to the Switch eShop next Thursday. For an early look at the game, view the video below containing 31 minutes of footage.
