Yooka-Laylee developer Playtonic today confirmed its next publishing partnership, as the company announced today that it’s teaming up with MegaWobble on the 3D adventure title Lil Gator Game. It will be brought to Switch under the Playtonic Friends line.

Today’s announcement notes that Lil Gator Game “is built around the idea of uninterrupted exploration and child-like whimsy with a story not about noble heroes who changed the world or of wicked anti-heroes who learn the error of their ways but of heroes who learn to be better friends without ever losing their heart of gold.” The project “focuses on a wholesome, enjoyable experience built around the very concepts of friendship and helping each other.”

It’s been well over a year since we last heard about Slice of Life, Smallrave Entertainment’s story-driven tennis game for Switch. The good news is that work has continued since our initial report back in March 2020, and the project is almost wrapped up.

Antonball Deluxe, which was first announced for Switch last September, has secured a final release date. Publisher Proponent Games and developer Summitsphere confirmed release timing for September 28.

Antonball Deluxe first had a vague 2021 launch window on Switch. It was then thought that the game would be releasing in March, but that didn’t come to be. Now that we have an actual release date, there shouldn’t be any changes when it comes to the game’s launch.

Antonball Deluxe is described as “a high-octane smorgasbord of brickbreaking, molemashing, ballbusting action.” Three games are included: Antonball Arcade, Punch Ball Antonball, and VS. Antonball. Antonball Deluxe comes with 69 levels, 21 characters to unlock, and local co-op support for up to four players.
