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.

Microids has made one of the more random game announcements for Switch that we’ve seen in recent times: My Baby. The new title will launch on July 9, and will even have a physical release. We have the boxart above.

Microids said that My Baby will let you “create your dream baby, pick up their perfect outfit and customize their room as you like it”. It also sounds like you’ll be taking care of them based on screenshots shared today.

Speaking of screenshots, here are a couple of images:

Publisher Microids announced today that they are bringing Kingdom Majestic to Nintendo Switch. This is collection that includes both Kingdom: New Lands and Kingdom: Two Crowns, as well as the additional content released for both games post-launch.

Last year, Microids announced that they would be releasing a physical collection of the two classic platformers Another World and Flash in November of 2019. However, November came and went without a release of the collection. Today, Microids send out a new press release, announcing that the collection is now set to arrive on April 16, 2020. The physical release will contain both games, digital OSTs for both games, two postcards of each game and a reversible cover.
