Microids, in collaboration with Oddworld Inhabitants, today unveiled the limited edition for Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee. Switch fans will be able to secure the special release, which includes a copy of the game, keychain imprint of Munch’s foot, a set of stickers, and an exclusive lenticular box.

Microids and Playmagic have shared an official trailer for XIII, a remake of Ubisoft’s shooter from the GameCube era. Watch it below.

XIII launches physically and digitally for Switch on November 10.

XIII originally launched back in November of 2013. With its detailed art style, fantastic story, and cel-shaded graphics, it fast became a hit. Now, due to a listing from Amazon Spain, we know that there are only a handful of months to go before players can enjoy the title on modern hardware. It does look like there will be a special edition in at least some regions, with a metal case, 3 art cards, and in-game DLC included.

French publisher Microids and IMPS announced today that a new publishing deal has been reached for a video game based on The Smurfs.

The upcoming project will be a 3D action-adventure title, which is being developed by OSome Studio. It’ll offer “a brand new story” with “tons of humor, thrills, friendship, suspense and of course, a lot of action.”

Oddworld Inhabitants have announced that another installment of the Oddworld franchise will be coming to the Switch on May 14th, 2001’s Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee. The game will also be receiving a limited physical release later in 2020.

The game’s description reads:

Microids today announced that it will release a new game based on the book and media franchise The Adventures of Tintin in partnership with Moulinsart. Platforms haven’t been confirmed, but given that every single one of the company’s titles have found their way to Switch since the system’s release, we should be seeing this one on Nintendo’s console.

Not much is known about the new game based on The Adventures of Tintin currently. However, Microids has shared a small bit of information:

Retailers have started to open pre-orders for Kingdom Majestic, including Amazon and GameStop. We also have a look at the boxart above.

Kingdom Majestic features Kingdom New Lands and Kingdom Two Crowns. Additionally, both will come with all content released for both titles since their original launches.

Kingdom Majestic launches June 18.
