Switch eShop

Another NeoGeo game has received a release date on the Switch eShop. Next Thursday, Galaxy Fight: Universal Warriors will be available. The Japanese eShop lists it for May 18. NeoGeo games tend to arrive during the same week worldwide, so we expect this to continue with Galaxy Fight.

Hamster still has a number of NeoGeo games in the pipeline for Switch. These include Shock Troopers 2nd Squad, Last Resort, and the first Sengoku.

Galaxy Fight: Universal Warriors will be priced at $7.99 / €6.99 / £6.29.

Inside System has announced a pair of new titles for Switch. Later this year, the company will publish Dark Witch’s Story: Combat and Brave Dungeon on the eShop as a bundle.

Saber Interactive has spoken about supporting NBA Playgrounds going forward with multiple updates. On Switch, one of the big things we’re waiting on the ability to play online – which should be coming very soon.

In an interview with Just Pause, Saber Interactive CEO Matt Karch also said that loading times are being improved. This is an issue for some on Switch, and loading takes the most time on Nintendo’s console than any other version. It should be addressed soon, as the team apparently improved the situation with the first upcoming update. Matt Karch

NBA Playgrounds is now available to download on the Switch’s eShop. Check out the launch trailer below.

MixedBag Games, known for developing forma.8, have recently revealed on Twitter that they are working on Switch. It’s not really a surprise, since they already mentioned in the past that they hope to port forma.8 to Switch someday.

For now, MixedBag Games don’t have any game to announce, so we’ll have to stay tuned to what they have to offer in the future.


Yesterday we reported that Dark Witch Music: Rudymical, a rhythm mini-game that’s already out on 3DS, was coming to Switch and it was listed for May 11 on the official Nintendo UK’s website.

Now CIRCLE Ent.’s official Twitter account has confirmed that Dark Witch Music Episode: Rudymical will be coming to the North American Switch eShop on the same date, May 11, for a price of $7.99.

Here’s an English trailer:


The Switch eShop added in the ability to save credit card information last night. As it turns out, this wasn’t the only change.

The “Recent Releases” now features a “View All” button at the end of the page. Clicking on it presents all games sorted from new to old. You can also set the price range, view the best sellers, and arrange things from old to new.

What’s interesting about this is that it’s not entirely new. You could actually do it before, but the issue was that not many Switch owners knew about it. Basically, by going to the search area and then clicking “Search Filters”, the same page as the “View All” page pops up. So it may be somewhat of a minor addition, but something that will definitely go a long way.

Thanks to Jes T for the tip.
