As a way of tiding fans over until the release of Shakedown: Hawaii, Vblank Entertainment is putting out its previous game Retro City Rampage DX on Switch. It could end up on the eShop either this week or next week.

On Switch, Vblank noted that Retro City Rampage DX will feature even more improvements:

Like each port before it, it contains little tweaks that polish the game even further (I just can’t help myself!). From little things like the slightly more stylish score display, to improved enemy stomp and swimming controls, to improved lock-on targeting, and mission difficulty tweaks. If you couldn’t beat Death Cam VHS before, you’ll have a leg up on Switch!

As for Shakedown’s release, don’t worry! This surprise port hasn’t lead to any sort of delays with that. If anything, this’ll ensure that once ready, Shakedown gets through Nintendo Switch certification quickly, since our road’s been paved by RCR:DX.

We also have this teaser for the Switch release:


Boost Beast from Hey! Pikmin developer Arzest and Arc System Works is out now on the Japanese Switch eShop, and tomorrow in North America and Europe. View some footage below.

Trine developer Frozenbyte shared a new video for its upcoming Switch game Nine Parchments. Below, you can get a closer look at one of the characters: Nim the Cleaner.


The Japanese Switch eShop has updated with a new upcoming game. The horror visual novel Rei-Jin-G-Lu-P will be available on August 3, according to a listing on the store. It will cost 3,000 yen.

Rei-Jin-G-Lu-P previously came out on mobile before coming to the PlayStation Vita. That version featured revamped visuals and new scenarios with full voices for CG events. On Switch, Rei-Jin-G-Lu-P should be based on the Vita release.

We’ve included the Switch trailer for Rei-Jin-G-Lu-P below.
