LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is happening, with Warner Bros. releasing a teaser trailer today. That’ll be followed up with a proper trailer next week.


Technically, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 has not been announced for a Nintendo platform just yet. We’d be shocked if this weren’t on Switch at the very least though.

At Unite 2017 Tokyo, a special panel was held about how the Unity-based I Am Setsuna was brought to Switch. The talk was highlighted by the appearance of Usuke Kumagai from Tokyo RPG Factory. Yuichiro Kitao and Tomoyuki Kurino from Gem Drops were present as well. Gem Drops was involved with programming, graphics and planning support, and the localized version for the Switch version of I Am Setsuna.

To begin, the team heard that Nintendo’s new hardware – known as NX at the time – supported Unity. In order to accumulate know-how on methods of the hardware, the process began of porting I Am Setsuna to Switch.

We’re a tad late, but a new month is here! So that means we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Highlights from last week’s topic: Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials DLC

Fabraz’s recently-released Slime-san is on the way to Switch, the studio has revealed to Nintendo Everything. It’s currently targeted for Q3 of this year.

A build of Slime-san is up and running right now on Nintendo’s console. Fabraz approached Nintendo at GDC, and dev kits were sent out soon after.

This isn’t the first time we’re reporting on Slime-san. Originally, the game was planned for Wii U. Fabraz told us that this version “is currently on ice,” however.

Get a look at Slime-san with the trailer below.

Inti Creates made it known last month that the company would be announcing two new games at BitSummit. We now have confirmation that both projects will be on Nintendo platforms, and more specifically, on Switch. Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu confirmed the news during a lecture at Tokyo Sandbox 2017.

BitSummit will take place on May 20 and May 21 at the Miyako Messe in Kyoto. Along with Inti Creates’ games, other indie titles will be showcased as well.

Snake Pass is a significant game on Switch having been the first Unreal Engine 4 title on the platform. On the whole, it stacks up quite well against other versions. Technical director Pete Harrap posted a blog this week that not only offers insight into getting Snake Pass up and running on Switch, but also looks back on overall cross-platform development.

The image attached above is a “super early” look at Snake Pass during an internal game jam. Ultimately, the company decided to move forward with the project after selecting it out of a number of different pitches.

Harrap’s post later goes into Switch development specifically. Here’s what Snake Pass looked like on the system after just two days:

Disgaea 5 Complete hasn’t launched yet in the west, but it’s already on track to outpace sales in Japan by a large margin.

NIS America president Takuro Yamashita told MCV that pre-orders for the game are sitting at 110,000 copies in the west. Pre-orders are at 78,000 units in the US and and 36,000 copies in Europe.

Nintendo is back with the continuation of the Squid Sisters Stories for Splatoon 2. This new initiative intends to tell the tale of Callie and Marie following the final Splatfest.

Update 2: More on HD Rumble implementation:



Update: And just like that, a retail version is confirmed:



Original: After originally launching on Wii U, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is now coming to Switch. WayForward announced the news today and stated that this new version is slated for the summer. HD Rumble will be supported.

WayForward tweeted:


It’s not yet known if Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will be receiving a physical release. The news comes directly from WayForward rather than XSEED though, so it could be digital-only.
