It’s been announced that The House of the Dead: Remake is coming to Switch. The game will launch later in 2021.

Below are the first details and trailer:

Following yesterday’s announcement, Nintendo will host a new Indie World Showcase in an hour from now. The broadcast begins at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM in the UK / 6 PM in Europe.

We have an embed for today’s live stream. Further coverage will follow on the site during and after the presentation.

The original Pokemon Snap had just 63 creatures to catch. For the series’ first new entry in more than twenty years, that number has increased substantially. New Pokemon Snap on Switch will feature over 200 Pokemon.

It’s worth noting that when the N64 title originally debuted, there weren’t nearly as many Pokemon back then. There have been several generations over the years and we’re not very far away from 1,000 designs in total. So how did the New Pokemon Snap team go about choosing Pokemon for the new title?

Update (4/13): Play-Asia has opened pre-orders for the No More Heroes 3 Killion Dollar Trilogy here. It should ship to most countries.


Original (4/8): During today’s No More Heroes 3 stream, a lengthy trailer for the game debuted. It shows off the upcoming Switch title while also looking back on the series’ previous entries.

Here’s the full video:

Blizzard Arcade Collection has received a major update on Switch. Version 1.0.2 is live, which adds two new games for free. Players can now access Lost Vikings 2 and RPM Racing.

That’s not all. Blizzard has added a Design Documents gallery to the Museum, while Rock N Roll Racing has a new Streamer Mode in the Definitive Edition as well as four-player local multiplayer that lets you stream your gameplay with MIDI versions of the songs while still preserving the game’s sound.

Here’s the full announcement from Blizzard: 

nWay is teaming up with Capcom on a special piece of DLC for Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. The Switch fighter is getting the Street Fighter Pack next month.

As part of the DLC, Crimson Hawk Ranger and Blue Phoenix Ranger can become Ryu and Chun-Li respectively. The pack contains both fighters as well as “exclusive skins to be revealed at a later date.”

We’re always used to being adventurers – going out into the world to slay monsters, learn new spells, collect newer and better equipment, and keeping our party’s health up with items. After all, who doesn’t love a new adventure and fulfilling quests for rewards? But I have to stop and think sometimes: what is life like for all those supporting NPCs that you meet in every town? What’s it really like to be a blacksmith, an armorer, a magic instructor, or dare we ask – an alchemist? Well, luckily, Potion Party is here to answer that last question in the form of an alchemy simulator with cute pixel graphics with bright colors and fast-paced tasks.

FMVs, much like visual novels, have always had that sort of stigma where those that weren’t open-minded enough wouldn’t really consider them to be true games, yet I guarantee every genre, regardless of what one’s feeling towards them are, has at least something for everyone that may surprise you – it’s just a matter of finding that right piece of media that’ll open the doors to help further spark an interest. While I haven’t played many FMVs, I can count quite a few that have all been fairly different from each other. Even if its live-action foundation may make it seem like a movie more than anything else, games like Erica, the controversial Phantasmagoria, and more set revolutionary ideas into place that made them much more than an interactive film. When it comes to the new Switch release I Saw Black Clouds, it finds itself in an odd in-between that goes from being mostly pure film to one with quite a few neat ideas that make it much more than a simple “choose an option” experience, and while I wouldn’t necessarily consider it fun in the traditional sense, as a film it can be immensely enjoyable.
