Switch eShop

Use Your Words was just added to the Wii U eShop last month. Today, Smiling Buddha Games announced that a Switch version is on the way as well.

Use Your Words will be on Switch “soon”. View a trailer below, along with a lengthy overview.

A few weeks back we reported on Dusty Raging Fist as a game for Switch thanks to a listing on the official BitSummit website. However, the information was not accurate enough for us to take it as fact.

Today, the official Twitter account for Dusty Raging Fist has stated that the game is coming for Switch, so this time it is a definitive confirmation. They will be showing it first at BitSummit, but we don’t have a release date yet.

You can read the overview of the game meanwhile:

“When the occurence of the dark moons began, Dusty, Darg and Kitsune knew that something is amiss. An ancient evil from a faraway land threatens the peace of Double Bill Town. Prompted by a visit from the helpless Elijah, the trio set off to seek the Iron Knight’s help. Along the way, they have to battle rogue villains, encounter ancient powers and face the battle of their lives.

– Co-op Play of up to 3 Players
– Dynamic Combat System
– 3 playable beat’em up characters, and 2 combat support characters.
– Utilize your combat support characters (Artillery & Sniper) to aid you in combat.
– Collect, utilize and summon powerful Guardians and Elemental Powers.
– Stylistic 2D artwork and animation.
– Crazy boss fights to make your day.”

Snake Pass was the first Unreal Engine 4-developed game for Switch. Now the system appears to have another.

NBA Playgrounds is one of the newest eShop titles, following its release a few days ago. Interestingly enough, it was developed with Unreal Engine 4. Saber Interactive stated this explicitly in a post made on the Xbox blog.

NBA Playgrounds debuted on Switch this past Tuesday. Saber Interactive will be keeping the game fresh with consistent updates that will add new modes and players.

Fabraz’s recently-released Slime-san is on the way to Switch, the studio has revealed to Nintendo Everything. It’s currently targeted for Q3 of this year.

A build of Slime-san is up and running right now on Nintendo’s console. Fabraz approached Nintendo at GDC, and dev kits were sent out soon after.

This isn’t the first time we’re reporting on Slime-san. Originally, the game was planned for Wii U. Fabraz told us that this version “is currently on ice,” however.

Get a look at Slime-san with the trailer below.

Inti Creates made it known last month that the company would be announcing two new games at BitSummit. We now have confirmation that both projects will be on Nintendo platforms, and more specifically, on Switch. Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu confirmed the news during a lecture at Tokyo Sandbox 2017.

BitSummit will take place on May 20 and May 21 at the Miyako Messe in Kyoto. Along with Inti Creates’ games, other indie titles will be showcased as well.

The string of strong eShop releases continues on Switch next week. This coming Thursday, Drool will be putting out its unique rhythm game Thumper. To download the title, you’ll need 697MB of free space on internal memory or a microSD card.

ACA NeoGeo Garou: Mark of the Wolves came out on Switch earlier this week, so the official Hamster YouTube account has decided to put up a new trailer to show of some gameplay. Have a look at it below.

Snake Pass is a significant game on Switch having been the first Unreal Engine 4 title on the platform. On the whole, it stacks up quite well against other versions. Technical director Pete Harrap posted a blog this week that not only offers insight into getting Snake Pass up and running on Switch, but also looks back on overall cross-platform development.

The image attached above is a “super early” look at Snake Pass during an internal game jam. Ultimately, the company decided to move forward with the project after selecting it out of a number of different pitches.

Harrap’s post later goes into Switch development specifically. Here’s what Snake Pass looked like on the system after just two days:

Blaster Master Zero introduced a new update last week. With the addition of the EX Character Mode stemming from version 1.2, Inti Creates is letting players experience the game with brand new characters. Each one will have new abilities and weapons.

Gunvolt from the Azure Striker Gunvolt series is the first character to be made available. He’ll be free until May 17. After that, you’ll need to fork over $2 for the character.

If you’ve yet to purchase Blaster Master Zero on Switch, you can obtain the DLC regardless. Simply visit the game’s eShop listing and scroll down to the “Downloadable Content” area. Select “EX Character Gunvolt”, and then the “Free Download” button. That’s it! Then if you decide to pick up Blaster Master Zero later on, Gunvolt will be available.

Back in January, Team Cherry announced that the Wii U version of Hollow Knight had been scrapped. In its place is a new release on Switch, which the team aimed to have ready “not too long after the platform’s launch.”

Unfortunately, it may take significantly longer than expected for Hollow Knight to reach Switch. Matt Griffin, who is handling PR, marketing, testing and translation for the game, said last month that the Switch port “will take time.” Griffin estimated that the process will require six to twelve months.
