City Connection prepared a new batch of screenshots for its Penguin Wars remake on Switch, which we have below.

Just like in the original, the game still has players throwing ten balls at each other’s sides of the field as they attempt to take down their opponent’s HP. One-on-one and two-on-two modes are in along with special rules, new music, and more.

Penguin Wars is due out this fall in Japan for 1,800 yen.

Blaster Master Zero has been downloaded over 100,000 times, Inti Creates has announced. That number should be across Switch and 3DS.

In only five short months, you wonderful people have propelled Blaster Master Zero over the 100,000 download milestone! Thank you so very much for your support! With the upcoming release of Shovel Knight on August 3rd, and with our other plans in the pipeline, we are still working very hard on making Blaster Master Zero as awesome as it can be.
