Next Up Hero is in development for Switch, Digital Continue and Aspyr have announced. Digital Continue was founded by Joe Tringali, the co-founder of Scribblenauts developer 5th Cell.

In the game, you’ll play as one of nine heroes and battle enemies with an assortment of weapons. The hook here is that when you die, an Echo of your hero is left behind. That Echo can then be used by the next hero as an AI companion.

Next Up Hero is currently slated for early 2018. View additional information and a trailer below.

So you think can slay all the monsters and win eternal glory, is that it? Bad news, hero. In the Spiral Shards, we can only send in one hero at a time to fight the Ceaseless Dirge. At some point, a flaming blue fireball, mech mortar rocket, or giant spike of doom is going to hit you in the face, and you’re going to die. That’s when the fun begins.

When you die, you’ll leave behind an Echo of your hero on the battlefield. The next hero in line will be able to resurrect your Echo as an AI battle companion. Take turns continuing each other’s games, fighting and dying with friends until you have an entire army of Echoes by your side. Everyone dies. Heroes continue.

Levels+: Addictive Puzzle Game is already on track to launch on the Japanese Switch eShop next week. Based on a store listing, Europe is getting it as well. The eShop indicates that the puzzler will release on July 13 in PAL regions.

We have the following overview from the listing:

Levels+ is an addictive puzzle game that you’ll want to challenge over and over again.

The rule is simple. Slide and match panels with the same color and number to level up!

The blue panel is your ally. It will get stronger as you level up. The red panel is your enemy and it will get in your way. Level up your blue panels to defeat your foe.

The yellow panel is your treasure. Level it up to increase its wealth.

There is no time limit, and the auto-save feature allows you to play even with interruptions, so reach for your high score at your own pace.

It looks simple but you need to use your brain. Recommended for both people not so good at games and for those who are looking for a certain challenge, this puzzle game features a new refreshing feeling.
