Bethesda has been supporting Switch much more than any other prior Nintendo platforms. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Doom made it to the system late last year, with Wolfenstein II following sometime in 2018.

In an interview at PAX East, Bethesda Softworks senior VP of marketing Pete Hines was asked quite a bit about Switch. The discussion started with the possibility of bringing other previously-released titles to the platform, to which Hines stated:

The latest issue of MCV featured a lengthy interview with NIS America president Takuro Yamashita. Yamashita spoke about SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, the opportunities on Switch, and sales of Disgaea 5 Complete on the west.

One part of the interview in particular touched on SNK Heroines, and how Nintendo had requested to work with SNK on an exclusive basis. Yamashita also mentioned that physical copies will only be offered on Switch, with Nintendo buying many units and acting as a distributor.

Recently, Warner Bros. and TT Games released a new update for LEGO Worlds. The latest version is 1.2.4.

After updating the Steam version, the LEGO Worlds team shared some patch notes. Fortunately, the information also included information about what applies to Switch.

Following up on the Japanese news from earlier today, Capcom has shared western release details for Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2. A release is planned for July 24.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 will be sold digitally for $19.99 each and as part of a special retail bundle in North America for $39.99.

In the Nintendo scene, Treasure is known for its work on the Sin & Punishment series. The studio also created the cult-classic shoot ’em up Ikaruga, and it now seems the developer is looking into a possible Switch version.

Treasure said on Twitter today that Switch can be played vertically, so the company has been receiving requests to port Ikaruga. Treasure bought a 108 yen stand at Daiso and tried placing the system vertically, but noted that it should’ve been 3mm broader. Horizontally it’s perfect, but vertically it’s a bit lacking.

In a nutshell, the tweet is about Treasure contemplating how playing Ikaruga vertically would work on Switch. However, it sounds like they feel like the screen is not quite broad enough when placed vertically. We’ll have to wait and see how this plays out.

A new piece of DLC is joining LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 today. Players can get their hands on Marvel’s Runaways Character and Level Pack, containing a level and characters inspired by Brian K Vaughan’s iconic comic series.

Here’s a brief overview of the DLC:

Slime-san is getting the physical treatment, this month’s issue of Switch Player reveals. Limited Run Games will be working with Fabraz on the boxed version.

Unfortunately, that’s about all we know at the moment. A release date for Slime-san’s physical release isn’t mentioned in the magazine.

Awhile back, Nippon Ichi announced a remake of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. Word out of the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation is that it’s coming to Switch as Disgaea Refine.

Disgaea Refine launches in Japan on July 26. Fans will be able to purchase a limited edition with the game, soundtrack, daily desktop calendar, and special box for 9,200 yen.

We should have more information about Disgaea Refine, especially when Dengeki PlayStation releases officially tomorrow.

Back in December, Capcom announced that all Mega Man X games would be released on the Switch, although it wasn’t yet clear in what format. In February, Mega Man X Legacy Collection and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 were rated in Australia, suggesting that the X games would be released as part of these collections. This has now been confirmed in the latest edition of Famitsu magazine as well as in a new Japanese trailer released by Capcom (in Japan, the games are called Rockman X Anniversary Collection).

Mega Man X Legacy Collection will include Mega Man X through X4, while Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 will include Mega Man X5 through X8. In addition to the games themselves, there are also a variety of bonus features such as an optional filter, a music and art gallery, a collection of images depicting various Mega Man X merchandise that has been released over the years, a trailer collection as well as the “Day of Sigma” OVA. There’s also a new mode called “X Challenge”, a boss rush mode with a twist. In it, you will have to fight bosses from different games in the X series together.
