MythForce review

System: Switch
Release date: September 12, 2023
Developer: Beamdog
Publisher: Aspyr

Booting up MythForce on Switch, and the first thing you’re met with is an uncomfortably long loading screen. After that, you’re treated to an animated intro that aims to mimic Saturday morning cartoons of the 80s – think “Thundercats” and “He-Man, Masters of the Universe”. It’s cute enough to induce a smile the first time around, but if you look past the nearly 40-year old stylistic veneer and the cheesy theme tune, you’re left with a game that sadly doesn’t know what to do with itself. It’s as though developer Beamdog started with the concept of a cartoon co-op rogue-lite, and then carried it through to its most saccharine, predictable conclusion.

SaGa Emerald Beyond

Original (9/14): Square Enix is developing SaGa Emerald Beyond for Switch, the company revealed during today’s Nintendo Direct. A release is planned for 2024.

SaGa Emerald Beyond is an all-new original adventure in the RPG franchise with music from series composer Kenji Ito and artwork from illustrator Satoshi Kuramochi, The game “brings together the core combat and free-form scenario elements of the beloved RPG franchise to deliver the ultimate SaGa experience to fans and newcomers alike.”

Mortal Kombat 1 Switch

While Mortal Kombat 1 has been seeing an overall positive impression on most consoles, the same can’t be said of the Switch version. Fans aren’t pleased with some of the game’s visuals and performance on Nintendo’s platform. However, it sounds like there are at least plans to improve the experience on Switch. 

In an interview with BBC Newsbeat, series creator Ed Boon said the Switch version of Mortal Kombat 1 “absolutely be getting an update”. He went on to say:

System: Switch
Release date: August 24, 2023
Developer: Colorgrave
Publisher: Colorgrave

It would be fair to say that while Capcom hasn’t entirely abandoned the Mega Man franchise, it has been somewhat lax with support for it within recent times, favoring collective releases of past series rather than making entirely new games. It has fallen to smaller studios to carry the torch and deliver new experiences, and Battery Staple Games has risen to the occasion magnificently with 30XX, a follow-up to their previous take on the formula.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 Grandma Gertie

Original (9/18): GameMill, Ludosity, and Fair Play Labs today confirmed that Grandma Gertie will be a playable character in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2. She’s known from the animated show Hey Arnold.

Based on a previous leak, Gertie won’t be the only new playable character from Hey Arnold. We don’t get into it here for those looking to avoid spoilers, but you can check out our previous post here.

If you’ve never heard of the classic fairytale “The History of Little Goody Two Shoes,” don’t worry, you’re not alone. This over 250-year-old story may have been one of the first children’s books to reach a widespread English audience, but its tale of a poor orphan’s journey journey to a life of riches hasn’t prevailed in the cultural zeitgeist in the way other classics from that era have. That hasn’t stopped Square Enix Collective – the indie publishing division of the JRPG giant – from greenlighting an experimental new release called Little Goody Two Shoes, which they bill as a “mysterious new fairytale anime adventure with a dark twist.” I had the chance to demo this off-the-wall title at PAX West recently, and while I had no idea what to expect going in, what I played was unsettling, beautiful, and immediately absorbing. 

F-Zero 99 will be adding more tracks soon, Nintendo has confirmed – plus dataminers have found unreleased modes.

First up will primarily be Queen League courses within the next week. After that, mid-October will bring along King League tracks.
