Toy Soldiers HD has been hit with another delay, though this time it’s specifically for the Switch version.

We last heard that the game would be ready to go on October 21. However, the Switch version is still being tested. Once it’s through the certification process, a new date will be shared.

Toy Soldiers HD was originally planned for Spring 2020 on Switch before being moved to 2021. It was then on track for this August, but was delayed to September 9. After that, Accelerate Games was hoping it would launch on September 30.

Accelerate Games shared the following statement regarding Toy Soldiers HD’s latest Switch delay:

A notable Autumn update will be made available in Garden Story next week, publisher Rose City Games and developer Picogram have announced.

It’s been over a year since we last heard about Cassette Beasts, a monster-fusing open-world RPG where players collect creatures to use in turn-based battles. The project has now resurfaced with the news that Raw Fury will be in charge of publishing. A new trailer has come in as well.

Publisher Modus Games and developer Pixile Studios have announced a new, limited time Howloween event for Super Animal Royale. It’ll go live later today on Switch.

As part of the new event, “The Bwoking Dead” will be added as a new mode which supports 40 players in squads of four. Each match begins with four random players that have been infected with “The Cluckles,” an incurable condition that will shortly transform them into ravenous rotting chickens. On the bright side, Zombie Chickens have supernatural speed, hearing, and infectious chicken scratchers. Survivors can loot, shoot, hide, or group up with other squads to avoid being infected and catch the Giant Eagle for a ride out of the chaos.

HypeTrain Digital and LEAP Game Studios have set a release date for Tunche, their action game with beat ’em up and roguelike mechanics. Switch owners can pick up the title starting on November 2.

Tunch was first announced for Switch in 2018. It was last planned for this past March, but that launch target wasn’t met.
