Bromio has revealed that Pato Box, an adventure / fighting game inspired by Punch-Out!!, is on the way to Switch. It’s due out on the system sometime this year.

You’ll play as Patobox, who strangely has a duck’s head on a man’s body. After he’s betrayed by his sponsor Deathflock, you’ll be tracking down his henchmen and discovering the company’s secrets. It’s all wrapped up in visual style that takes after graphic novels.

You can find more information and a trailer for Pato Box below.

Atooi released the 2D platformer Chicken Wiggle, complete with a level editor, for 3DS last year. Since the system was late in its lifecycle and Switch had been soaking up the limelight, it was a bit overlooked.

Atooi is now gauging interest in a potential version of Chicken Wiggle for Switch that would be supported on Kickstarter. Founder Jools Watsham said on Twitter that new HD artwork would be included.

As for the Kickstarter campaign, it would be “as low and reasonable as possible.” The funding goal would be in the range of five figures.


Games disappear from the eShop from time to time. The latest example of this is Tiny Metal, which is no longer available in Europe.

Tiny Metal’s developer hasn’t offered up an explanation for the removal. We assume that it’s only temporary, as has been the case in the past. It could be a ratings issue.

Tiny Metal still remains on other regional eShops. If you’re interested in purchasing the title, you can grab it off of the North American store.


Stingbot Games has confirmed that The Forbidden Arts Bursts, its new action-adventure platformer, is planned for Switch. The game will be hitting Nintendo’s console in early 2019 following the exit from Steam Early Access.

Here’s more on The Forbidden Arts:

Listings on the Switch eShop reveal two new games from Gambitious and Vile Monarch. The two sides will soon be releasing a pair of titles on Switch: Oh…Sir!! The Insult Simulator and Oh…Sir! The Hollywood Roast.

Oh…Sir!! The Insult Simulator and Oh…Sir! The Hollywood Roast are both on track for January 18 in Europe. Presumably, they’ll be out in North America around the same time.

We have more information about both games and trailers below.

QubicGames and Bloober Team are soon bringing Brawl to Switch. Take a look at some footage in the video below.
