Naps Teams has released brand new gameplay of its action adventure RPG Baldo: The Guardian Owls. Get a look at 13 minutes of footage below.

A release window for Baldo: The Guardian Owls has not yet been announced.

When we last heard about Baldo, it was on track to launch sometime this summer. However, Nintendo’s website listing for the game has been updated, and now shows a release date of “TBD”. It also doesn’t help that fall will be starting in a couple of weeks, so Naps Team wouldn’t have much time to hit that summer window in any case.

Baldo received a great deal of attention after it was shown during an Indie World Showcase earlier this year. For those that haven’t heard about the project previously, check out the following overview and trailer:

Naps Team is currently developing Baldo, a Zelda-inspired action-action game with a cel-shaded art style. It’s in development for Switch and other platforms.

Aside from the trailer below, information is hard to come by. We do know that the action is top-down, but the backgrounds are fully 3D.

Baldo is currently without a release date. We’ll bring you more information when we have it.

Red Art Games will offer a physical version of Gekido Kintaro’s Revenge, the company has announced. Copies will include Game Boy Advance packaging, an art book, exclusive stickers, and a copy of the game on a cartridge.

Naps Team has set a release date for Gekido Kintaro’s Revenge on Switch. The game is slated for March 8, with eShop pre-orders opening on March 22.

Gekido Kintaro’s Revenge originally released for the Game Boy Advance. The beat ’em up features features two-player co-op, a new “Relic Hunter” mode, and more on Switch.


We don’t have a release date for Gekido Kintaro’s Revenge on Switch just yet, but we do have a release month. Originally announced for Q1 2018, we now have a more specific window of March. Naps Team confirmed the news on Facebook earlier today.

Gekido Kintaro’s Revenge was originally released for the Game Boy Advance. The beat ’em up will have a story mode, survival mode, and relic hunting. Each one of these can be played alone or with another player.
