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.

This week’s NeoGeo addition on Switch was Sengoku. For a look at the game, take a look at the video below.

Ace of Seafood technically hasn’t been announced for Switch. That being said, it looks like it’s happening. Nussoft posted the image above on its Twitter account showing the game running on Switch and indicated that it will hit the platform once the system becomes more widely available.

Ace of Seafood has already come out on several platforms, including Wii U and PC. You can find more about the game below.

In the seas of the distant future, humans have all but disappeared.
Now fish and crustaceans fight great wars, shooting deadly rays of light at each other.
In your current, newly awakened state, you are no more than a piece of seafood.
But you have also been blessed with talent for leading your allies in battle.
Ransack the reefs. Discover an underwater world. Raise an army. Multiply your victories.

Do whatever it takes to become the Ace of Seafood.

Defeat enemies, increase allies, hone your strengths, secure reefs and voyage the seas from top to bottom!”Ace of Seafood” is a third-person action game in which you build a party of up to 6 fish/crustaceans, exploring the vast ocean and battling with various marine life in order to expand your dominance of the ocean.

– Team is trying to add a lot of replay value
– Wants to give the feeling of a true adventure rather than a series of self-contained stages

A few months ago, V7 Entertainment announced that Old Time Hockey would be released for Switch. Something happened along the way, as those plans have since been scrapped.

Here’s an interesting exchange with one fan on Twitter:


We don’t know what happened here unfortunately. Other than the tweet above, we don’t have much in the way of an explanation.

This information comes from Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki…

“The Switch game was included in the Nintendo Direct in Japan. Since then, we haven’t really said much about it, but it’s going to be a different flavor of a Senran Kagura title. It’s going to use HD Rumble to its full extent and the idea is that it’s going to be an interesting game to allow the player to feel the girl inside the game.

We definitely want to localize it, but we have to see what comes of it and if it’s possible.”

Hamster is still pumping out NeoGeo games for Switch on a weekly basis. On June 22, the eShop will be receiving Fatal Fury 2. It will cost $7.99 / €6.99 / £6.29.

That’s according to a listing on the European store. As we know, the NeoGeo titles tend to come out worldwide during the same week.

Here’s an overview of Fatal Fury 2:

“Fatal Fury 2 is a fighting game released by SNK in 1992. Terry, Andy, and Joe return from the previous installment along with five new fighters in order to decide who is the strongest one.

In addition to Desperation Moves which can change the outcome of battle, the two-lane plane mechanic is back stronger than ever, allowing players to fight each other in stage backgrounds.”
