Update (8/16): Ruud van de Moosdijk, Engine Software’s owner & VP of development, has said that “the unannounced project I am working on with a prolific Japanese developer, is not Killer7 for Switch”. He adds that the LinkedIn banner “should have been changed, as in the end we only did a PC version of Killer7.”


Original (8/14): Towards the end of 2018, Suda51’s classic GameCube title Killer7 was released on PC. Although NIS America published the game, it was ported by Engine Software – a studio that has worked on several projects for Switch. Now thanks to the company’s expertise, the game could be heading to Nintendo’s console.

A top developer at Engine Software shows a Killer7 remaster on his LinkedIn page for PC and Switch where he’s listed as executive producer. There’s also a note on his resume mentioning that he’s a producer “on an unannounced title in collaboration with a prolific Japanese game designer”.

Here’s a look:

NIS America will be releasing Prinny 1-2: Exploded and Reloaded on Switch in a couple of months. As the name implies, it comes with a couple of games: Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? and Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood! While NIS America is planning a physical version, things will be a bit different on the eShop.

Those who plan on picking up the Prinny games digitally will be interested to know that the two titles will be sold individually, which is helpful if you’re only interested in one of them specifically. They’re priced at $19.99 each, so you won’t necessarily be forced to spend $40.

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? takes up 826MB of space. Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood! comes in at 1.2GB.

void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium can feel as overwhelming as its full name. It is a touching narrative of hope and perseverance, about the power of human connections amid uncertainty. Yet at the same time, it is a blisteringly difficult and infuriatingly random roguelike, one that revels in placing insurmountable roadblocks in front of you at every step throughout its procedurally generated labyrinths. It is an inherently divisive game that is bound to hit home for some players, while alienating many others. Void Terrarium offers a beautiful and emotional experience for those who see its journey through to its conclusion, but getting there is a question of how much you’re willing to endure.
