Three upcoming, high-profile Switch games have now received demos – specifically Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince, Star Ocean: The Second Story R, and Silent Hope.

Square Enix says that for Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince, players will be able to transfer the monsters in their main party and reserves into the full game. The same holds true for the Star Ocean demo, which lets players start their adventure and experience the opening hours of the game. Finally, for Silent Hope, the entire first level of the Abyss is included.

Touhou New World update 1.1.0

A new update has landed in Touhou: New World, and version 1.1.0 brings along a brand new Bullet Hell difficulty option.

This mode naturally makes things much more difficult. Enemy barrage is increased, enemies have more HP, and more.

Outside of that, the game has implemented an improved dash plus the store features a Mystery Capsule dispenser. Some bugs have been taken care of as well.

Here’s the full rundown:

Fashion Dreamer preview
