New Pokemon Snap

New Pokemon Snap isn’t Bandai Namco’s first crack at the Pokemon series. The company was also responsible for Pokken Tournament for Wii U and arcades – as well as the Switch port that released later on.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it was Pokken Tournament that ultimately led Bandai Namco being able to work on New Pokemon Snap. Director Haruki Suzaki mentioned that to IGN and also confirmed that the team was able to speak with some of the original Pokemon Snap developers while tackling the Switch project.

Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection

Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection is making its way to Switch this summer. Three games are bundled together in a single package – specifically Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. They’re largely the same titles as they were before, but some features will be missing.

First up, Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja have confirmed that online multiplayer won’t be available for the “Tag Missions” in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. These missions had players switching between team members in real time as they try to complete challenges.

Nintendo typically puts out an Indie World Showcase around this time of year, and the latest presentation was finally delivered this week. The newest and greatest indie games were shown off for Switch as part of a 20-minute presentation.

Well over a dozen projects were shown. There were brand new announcements, shadowdrops, and updates on previously-known titles. Oxenfree II, OlliOlli World, Fez, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon, and The House of the Dead: Remake were among the featured games. You can find a full recap of everything shown here.
