Switch eShop

Tiny Troopers Joint Ops XL lands on the Switch eShop today. Get a look at the game’s official launch trailer below.

A bunch of new digital games are releasing on Switch today, including Tiny Metal. Take a look at the game running on Nintendo’s console below.

Layers of Fear: Legacy first surfaced for Switch in September. Today, Bloober Team shared new details about the game.

Layers of Fear: Legacy is based on the original title from 2016 that released on a number of platforms. It has been “remastered and redesigned exclusively” for Nintendo’s console.

After it was first made known in August, the Switch version of Brawlout released on Switch this week. It was confirmed a few days ago that a patch is due out very soon. The update is arriving “shortly after launch which addresses any minor frame stutters or crashes”.

Interestingly, it seems there’s a bit more to the patch. Angry Mob Games shared a few more details with fans over on Reddit.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

It’s been a busy year for Nintendo and Switch, with many titles launching on the platform since its debut in March. With 2017 coming to a close, Nintendo has decided to share a listing of the system’s best-selling games this year. Sort of. There are a couple of caveats to consider.

But first, on with the list:

A listing on the eShop shows a new title from QubicGames and Drageus Games. Assuming what’s shown on the store is accurate, Tactical Mind will be out starting this week.

Tactical Mind is a strategy game in which you gather energy, spawn and upgrade Pawns while also attacking and disabling your opponent’s Pawns. It features a single-player campaign as well as local multiplayer.

Set in a far-future interpretation of one of the oldest pieces of western literature, The Next Penelope has an engaging aesthetic wrapper for its gameplay mixture of top-down shooter and Micro Machines style racing. As novel as space Poseidon might be, these narrative elements are also its flimsiest facet. The snippets of dialogue that are peppered throughout the game’s five main major challenges fumble with some inelegant wording, odd grammar, and a few comma splices. The premise isn’t given the space to develop into much beyond passing references to the Odyssey. Fortunately, this is all just window dressing – the game’s hectic arcade-style shooting fares much better in blending somewhat dissonant gameplay concepts. It comes together as an impressively well constructed genre hybrid.

ConcernedApe began to tease new content for Stardew Valley last month. It was said at the time that it will be released alongside the free multiplayer update. Today, ConcernedApe provided brand new information that will be included.

Here’s the official word from the developer:

Stardew Valley’s new content and multiplayer update will go live on Switch sometime in 2018.


Max: The Curse of Brotherhood joins the Switch eShop tomorrow. Check out 21 minutes of footage in the video below.

Dragon Marked For Death

Inti Creates, the developer of the Azure Striker Gunvolt series, has been hard at work on its new game Dragon Marked for Death. Originally, it was slated for Winter 2017. With the lack of news since the original announcement, Inti Creates shared the expected news today that the game is now coming sometime in 2018 instead.

The official Twitter account posted the following earlier today:

2017 is almost up, so it would have been very surprising for Dragon Marked for Death to be released within the next couple of weeks. You can at least rest easy knowing that Inti Creates is doing everything possible to make the game as great as it can be.
