This week’s Switch eShop charts are as follows:


Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope playable Rosalina

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope features Rabbid Rosalina as a playable character, but not Rosalina herself. Creative director Davide Soliani explained the decision in a recent interview with Nintendo Everything.

Soliani revealed to us that the team did consider having her be playable. However, the decision ultimately came down to two key factors. The first aspect is that Rosalina is quite tall, and that could have been an issue with gameplay. Also, as we’ve seen in Nintendo’s own games, she’s simply “too powerful.”

Gothic Classic gameplay

Gothic Classic came to Switch this week courtesy of THQ Nordic, and gameplay is now in. More than twenty years after its initial debut, players on Nintendo’s console can experience the title.

Here’s an official overview with a bunch of details about the title:

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 Gerald

Another Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 character reveal is taking place to close out the week, and we now officially know that Gerald is a part of the roster as a playable character. This is the second new participant from Hey Arnold following Grandma Gertie.

If you kept up with the original leaks for the game, you may have already been aware that Gerald was almost certainly going to be included. However, this is the first time the news is being announced officially – and we actually have a look at the character in action now.

Annapurna Interactive and Geometric Interactive prepared a launch trailer for COCOON. The game, a sci-fi adventure experience, just released on Switch.

Another Code Recollection graphics comparison

A new graphics comparison from GameXplain shows how the new Switch version of Another Code: Recollection stacks up to the DS original.

The comparison specifically focuses on the first entry in the series here. Everything is now fully 3D, and exploration segments are now fully third-person. Also, as we saw in the Nintendo Direct presentation, voice acting will be included. And while it’s not covered in this specific comparison, the Wii sequel will also be a part of the package – the first time it’s getting an official release in North America.
