Switch eShop

We’ve known for a while now that Soldam: Bloom Declaration was going to be released outside Japan, and it seems like we’re now pretty close to that point. Today, the Japanese version was updated to version 1.1, and among some other changes, the game is now fully playable in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. Although it isn’t confirmed yet, this likely means that the game will be released on the European and North American Switch eShop pretty soon. If you don’t want to wait, simply download the game from the Japanese eShop and make sure to update the game to its latest version.

Nintendo UK has a new interview up with Ghost Town Games about Overcooked: Special Edition on Switch. The studio’s Phil Duncan and Oli De-Vine spoke about bringing their popular game to Nintendo’s new platform.

Duncan started out by discussing Overcooked origins on Switch. The team was actually thinking about a Wii U port, but that changed when Switch surfaced.

According to Duncan:

This week’s issue of Famitsu features an interview with Senran Kagura series producer Kenichiro Takaki. In it, Takai talks a bit about Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura, which was announced for Switch last week.

Here’s a recap of what Takai shared with Famitsu, courtesy of Gematsu:

– HD Rumble is a particularly fascinating feature of Nintendo Switch
– I expect that we’ll be able to do various things that we couldn’t do with the rumble function before
– As for what kind of things we’ll be able to do in Shinobi Refle using HD rumble, right now I’ll leave that to your imagination
– We’re basically aiming for a pure and wholesome Senran Kagura, and our main objective is to convey the feelings of the characters through HD rumble
– The story will be charmingly stupid
– You’ll be able to enjoy a different story than before
– As an affordably priced, download-only game, this is a concept title based on HD Rumble
– Asuka will be the only character to appear
– Asuka’s graphics are being rebuilt from the ground up
– I want to beautifully express the portrayal of light despite its anime style
– We’re considering making use of Switch features other than HD rumble
– Switch is considerably easy to develop for
– Other titles being considered that use Switch’s features

On Thursday, Booty Diver is heading to the North American Wii U eShop. Have a look at the launch trailer below.

Ancient posted a couple of tweets today showing some interest in a Switch version of Gotta Protectors. The game last released on 3DS as a hybrid of action and real-time strategy gameplay.

If Gotta Protectors were to come to Switch, the company wondered how the screen design would look like, so the team tried making a very rough design. Ancient thought what four-player split-screen would look like, but the individual screen for each player would be too small. The pixels are currently twice the usual size. If it was changed to about 1.3 times, it should be able to fit quite well, but the pixels would look off.

Note that Ancient doesn’t have Gotta Protectors running on Switch or anything along those lines. They are just testing things to fit on a 16:9 screen.

Mouldy Toof Studios and Team17 pulled back the curtain on a new prison in The Escapists 2. The two sides are introducing Rattlesnake Springs, located in the Old West.

“Sneak around the sheriffs, make friends with the compound’s horses and explore the dark mine below the prison in the wildest lockup yet,” Team17 says about the prison. Players can team up with three friends to break out of Rattlesnake Springs with online or local play later this year.

Here’s a new trailer for The Escapists 2:
