SMG Studio spoke about wanting to port over Death Squared to Switch earlier this year. That’s been made official, as the team officially announced that its game is coming to Nintendo’s console.

Death Squared is a puzzle co-op title that tasks players with reaching the goal in various levels. On Switch, SMG Studio will be packing in brand new stages.

Here’s an overview:

The listing comes with the following overview of Garou: Mark of the Wolves:

“Garou: Mark of the Wolves is a fighting game released by SNK in 1999. The son of Geese Howard, Rock Howard, who has been raised by Terry Bogard is the main character in this first episode of a new generation in the Fatal Fury series. Numerous new game mechanics such as the ‘Breaking’ feature have been introduced in this acclaimed fighting masterpiece resulting in a game with a variety of deep strategies available to players.”

The first thing that hit me upon playing TumbleSeed is how tactile it feels. Even as I was hopelessly fumbling and rolling my seed, making inconsequential progress up the game’s procedurally generated mountain, its textured soundtrack, satisfyingly percussive sound effects, and bright bubbly visuals kept me going – at least until I had a better grasp on the game. As it turns out, TumbleSeed is an excellent roguelike.

Blazing Star is out now on the Switch eShop as a new NeoGeo title from the Arcade Archives series. Take a look at some footage below.

Listings on the official BitSummit site indicated that Earth Atlantis and Dusty Raging Fist will be heading to Switch. Another potential game for the system has appeared as well. Going off of the same BitSummit site, Springloaded will be bringing GORSD to Switch.

Here’s a brief overview:

“A frantic local PVP title intended for 2-4 players huddled together around a screen. The core of the game revolves around painting tiles and shooting. Featuring different game modes, a variety of characters and unique maps to choose from, the gameplay is frenetic, tactical and tense!…Whether playing with friends or exploring the single player campaign, get ready to enter the Grid of Ridiculous Sudden Death.”
