Switch eShop

Blossom Tales, a new 2D Zelda-inspired game from FDG Entertainment and Castle Pixel, launched on Switch yesterday. An early report indicates that the game is doing extremely well.

FDG sent out a tweet earlier today stating that Blossom Tales managed to sell double the amount of copies on Switch launch day than the Steam version did in its lifetime. The company wrote:

Blossom Tales is out now on the eShop, and is currently a console exclusive.


Following its announcement in Famitsu this week, the official website for the new Switch version of WorldNeverland: Elnea Kingdom has opened. You can access it here.

WorldNeverland: Elnea Kingdom, a simulation title, was first released for smartphones where it has a user rating of 4.3 out of 5. On Switch, the vertical format will be swapped out for a horizontal interface and will not require an internet connection to play after the initial download. However, the Switch and mobile versions will not be compatible. Pricing is also “not yet fixed.”

WorldNeverland: Elnea Kingdom launches for Switch in Spring 2018 in Japan. It has yet to be announced for the west, but the game’s website shows an “English (US)” language option, though it’s currently disabled. This could be a sign of an overseas release in the future.


Disc Jam is coming to Switch, a new listing in the system’s news channels reveals. It currently lacks information, but confirms that the game is on the way.

Disc Jam originally debuted earlier this year. The game is described as a “fast-paced action-sports game that pits 2-4 players against each other in a frantic combination of air hockey and tennis.”

More information about Disc Jam can be found below, along with a trailer.

Flying Tiger Entertainment has announced plans to bring Data East arcade classics to Switch under a new “Johnny Turbo’s Arcade” line. The company intends to release “over 20 titles”. Releases will begin to appear this winter.

For now at least, Flying Tiger Entertainment is keeping the specifics titles under wraps. The company also hasn’t clarified if games will be sold individually or in groups.


The Game Bakers announced Furi for Switch a few weeks ago. According to a listing on the European eShop, the title will be launching on January 11. This is backed up by a similar listing on Nintendo’s North American website.

Furi is a “fast-paced sword fighting and dual-stick shooting game” that has earned a great amount of praise. The Switch version will include all content and improvements released so far.

Here’s some additional information and a trailer:
