Switch eShop

Bloober Team confirmed last August that Brawl would be released on Switch. That looks to be happening very soon.

Over on Nintendo’s North American website, Brawl is listed for January 12. QubicGames will be handling publishing duties.

Here’s an overview:

Hamster has brought a ton of NeoGeo titles to Switch over the past year, including Magician Lord. For some time though, it had gone missing on the North American eShop.

The good news is that Magician Lord is available once more. We’re not sure why it was taken down in the first place, but we assume that it won’t be removed again.


Zordix has prepared a new update for both Aqua Moto Racing Utopia and Snow Moto Racing Freedom on Switch. The latest patch adds online play, improves performance, and more.

The full patch notes are as follows:

Enter the Gungeon has received its first patch on Switch. The game has been updated to version 1.0.1.

According to Dodge Roll, the patch is very minor. The developer has only addressed “some minor text issues”.

Dodge Roll is also working on a more significant 1.0.2 update for Enter the Gungeon on Switch, which will fix some more notable issues. The team is currently working on getting it through certification.
