Switch eShop

A few new games out came out this week on the Wii U and 3DS eShops. If you’re interested in checking out what’s new in screenshot form, take a look at the gallery below.

Flyhigh Works and Circle Entertainment want to let us know how difficult their new rhythm game for Switch can be. That’s why we’ve got a new video about Dark Witch Music Episode: Rudymical that shows how the difficulty modes will vary from easy to lunatic. It’d be better not to underestimate the more advanced stages.

Check out the video below:


Aces of the Luftwaffe has made it to several platforms over the past few years. It’s now been revealed that a Switch version is in the works as well.

YouTuber PietSmiet stopped by HandyGames’ offices in Germany and was given an early look at Aces of the Luftwaffe running on Switch. Below, at the 3:06 mark, you can watch some work in progress gameplay.

Aces of the Luftwaffe puts you in the role of a fighter pilot as you take on waves of Axis planes and panzers leading up to the boss enemies, the Aces of the Luftwaffe. Various missions, power-ups, and upgrades are included. We’re not yet sure if the Switch version will feature any new content, but we’ll keep an eye out on future news going forward.


In cooperation with DigiPen Game Studios and the IMDA (Infocomm Media Development Authority), eight Singapore-based indie studios have announced plans to develop for Switch. Daylight Studios, Gattai Games, The Gentlebros, PD Design Studios, Rotten Mage, Springloaded, Tyler Projects, and Zengami are the developers in question.

These teams are pursuing Switch after meeting with Nintendo at the second annual DigiPen Game Conference held in Singapore this past February. Half of the studios intend to publish their forthcoming games through DGS.

Read up on some quotes from the various developers below.

Battle Sports Mekuru will launch on May 18 via the Japanese Switch eShop, Over Fence announced today. It’ll cost 980 yen. A new trailer for the game can be found below.

At a recent event in Tokyo, Inti Creates shared some info on the sales and development process on Blaster Master Zero. The Switch version of the game was in development for six months (alongside the 3DS version) and the development team consisted of 35 people. To date, the Switch version has been downloaded 80,000 times.

While this may not sound all that impressive, given that Inti Creates were willing to publicly share this number, they must be satisfied with the game’s sales so far.

1. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
2. NBA Playgrounds
3. Kamiko

Update: And just like that, a retail version is confirmed:

Original: After originally launching on Wii U, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is now coming to Switch. WayForward announced the news today and stated that this new version is slated for the summer. HD Rumble will be supported.

WayForward tweeted:

It’s not yet known if Shantae: Half-Genie Hero will be receiving a physical release. The news comes directly from WayForward rather than XSEED though, so it could be digital-only.
