Skully is a 3D platformer that struggles to get the ball rolling on Switch. It might remind Nintendo fans of early N64 platformers that experimented with what the genre could be. Skully keeps things simple but introduces a few new ideas that make it stand out from the platforming crowd. Unfortunately for Switch players, it looks like it belongs on the N64, too. Skully is a perfectly enjoyable little game with appealing art direction and some inventive mechanics, but it’s let down by an extremely lackluster Switch port.

The original Crysis was one of the most technically impressive games on the PC when it debuted back in 2007. At the time, no one would have predicted that it’d be on a Nintendo console, let alone in handheld form. Yet with Crysis Remastered, the series has now come to Switch and you can play the game anywhere you like.

Prior to Crysis Remastered’s launch on Switch, we spoke with project lead Steffen Halbig. We chatted about a number of topics, including how this new release came about and what it’s been like bringing the game to Nintendo’s system. We also have reconfirmation that more patches are planned to add even more to the Switch version and improve it further.

Here’s our full discussion:

Atlus graced fans with some long overdue news this week. Shin Megami Tensei V, which was announced back in January 2017, will finally release next year. We still don’t have an exact date, but fans can rest easy knowing that they’ll finally be able to play the RPG in 2021.

That wasn’t the only news from Atlus. Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster is on the way, which is something entirely new. Japan is getting it first in October, but western fans unfortunately need to wait until Spring 2021.

With a pair of Shin Megami Tensei games on the way to Switch in the future, let’s talk about the series in general. How many of the titles have you played? How do you feel about Shin Megami Tensei overall? Let us know in the comments below.
