PixelJunk Monsters 2’s demo was originally supposed to come to Switch this week. Unfortunately, that will no longer be happening. We’ll still be seeing the demo at some point, but “publishing setbacks” prompted a delay.

In the meantime, below you can get a close look at the demo with some footage. Dylan Cuthbert, one of the primary developers, played through it in full.

Crypt of the NecroDancer: Nintendo Switch Edition launches in Japan next Thursday. Ahead of the release, Spike Chunsoft has revealed some new information about the game.

Reaper is a playable character who makes its first appearance in the Switch version of Crypt of the NecroDancer. Defeated enemies will turn into souls and float around Reaper, and they can also attack enemies. Souls will disappear if they take damage. The more enemies you defeat, the more souls you’ll have. In addition to giving a powerful attack method, they can also become a thick shield that protects the player.

Reaper does not have any unlock requirements; you can use it right after purchasing the game.

Crypt of the NecroDancer: Nintendo Switch Edition will arrive on the Japanese Switch eShop on February 1, Spike Chunsoft has announced. Pricing is set at 2,160 yen.

Crypt of the NecroDancer is a roguelike dungeon exploration game with rhythm elements. On Switch, the DLC prequel “Amplified” will be included. Additionally, local multiplayer using the Joy-Con. Different skins will be available as well, including ones from the Danganronpa, Shiren the Wanderer, and Kenka Bancho franchises.

We have a few screenshots from Crypt of the NecroDancer: Nintendo Switch Edition below.

Crypt of the NecroDancer: Nintendo Switch Edition hasn’t been dated for North America or Europe as of yet. However, the western release is likely not too far off.
