System: Switch (eShop)
Release date: February 16, 2018
Developer: Zoink
Publisher: EA Originals


It’s is a little bit of a platformer, a little bit of a puzzle game, and a little bit of an art piece. At its heart Fe is a game about communication. It’s easy to locate among the lineage of games that are notable for pushing stories that only an interactive medium can tell: Another World, Ico, and Journey, as three pivotal entries in that genealogy. With its stylized low-poly aesthetic, soothing cello carried soundscape, and wimpy little fox character Fe feels like a game that is content being placed under the larger context of games that have been bolder and newer than it. For what it is, Fe is good. Scattered throughout its eight hour run time are a few really effective and awe-inspiring moments but even these glimpses of inspiration feel complacent in the shadows of earlier prospects.

Fe from Zoink and EA debuted on various platforms this week, including Switch. Get a look at how the Switch version stacks up to the Xbox One edition in the video below.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

The latest UK sales were reported earlier today. Following up on the initial news, we have some extra tidbits about FIFA 18 and Bayonetta 2 on Switch.

Regarding FIFA 18, sales saw a massive spike of 494% with physical sales. The reason? A heavy price cut. FIFA 18 was reduced to under £30 in the UK.

As for Bayonetta 2, we’re hearing that the game sold fewer physical copies at launch compared to Wii U. While it did place higher at #5 this week, it did so with a lower amount of units sold. However, one thing to note is that digital sales from the eShop are not included.

Although it was pretty much expected, Fe will be digital-only when it’s ready, according to developer Zoink Games. Some had been hoping for a physical release, but there are no current plans for that as of now.

Zoink has left the door open to the possibility in the future. At launch though, expect Fe to be available only on the eShop.
