Bandai Namco has just announced JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle R, a fighting game based on the popular franchise. It will release on Switch in early fall.

Technically what we have here isn’t brand new. The nearly decade-old game first debuted on PlayStation 3 back in 2013 in Japan, followed by the west a year later. CyberConnect 2 developed the project.

It took a bit longer than expected, but Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot + A New Power Awakens Set has finally gained Card Warriors on Switch.

Bandai Namco originally put the game on Nintendo’s console last September. Card Warriors was originally planned for Switch last fall, but the extra mode was pushed back. Bandai Namco cited “an adjustment of the development schedule” for the delay.

The Switch version of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles, which was first announced last week, has now been confirmed for the west. North America and Europe will be getting the game on June 10, 2022.

According to SEGA, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles on Switch contains everything found on other platforms, including all the post-launch content added such as the six new playable characters – Rui, Akaza, Susamaru, Yahaba, Enmu, and Yushiro & Tamayo, new online missions that reward Kimetsu Points to unlock additional rewards, and all the balance changes made to the combat.

We’ve included more information about the game below. 

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles has been announced for Switch with a release date of June 9, 2022. This release is for the Japanese version of the game being published by Aniplex and developed by CyberConnect2. The game was originally released on October 14, 2021 for current and last-gen consoles.

The Switch version will be priced at 7,480 yen and will receive a physical and limited edition. The limited edition will cost 11,800 yen and features additional costumes such as the Butterfly Mansion Patient and Kimetsu Academy costumes, as well as 16,000 Kimetsu Points.

All of this was announced in the Weekly Shonen Jump, no information on the western release has been given at this time.

CyberConnect2 announced today that it will release three paid costume DLC packs for Fuga: Melodies of Steel.

The first round of DLC, known as the School Costume Pack, drops on January 20. As the name implies, the 12 Taranis tykes are all suited up for school – specifically Malt, Mei, Hanna, Kyle, Boron, Socks, Chick, Hack, Sheena, Jin, Wappa, and Britz. DLC can be used during Intermission and Expedition.

Here’s a trailer introducing the first DLC:

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot + A New Power Awakens Set made it to Switch a few months ago, but it was missing a notable feature in the form of Card Warriors. This had previously landed on other platforms in 2020 and was intended to be made available on Nintendo’s console as part of a free update this fall. Unfortunately, that’s no longer happening.

Bandai Namco confirmed not too long ago that Card Warriors has been delayed on Switch “due to an adjustment of the development schedule.” A new release window was not provided.
