Following a ratings board leak, WayForward has officially announced Mighty Switch Force! Collection. The digital package launches for Switch on July 25.

Mighty Switch Force! Collection includes four games: Mighty Switch Force!, Mighty Switch Force! 2, Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition, and Mighty Switch Force! Academy. More information about what’s included can be found below.

Just a couple of weeks ago, WayForward and Arc System Works announced a new partnership on the creation of River City Girls. Details are mostly nonexistent at this time, including platforms. However, it now appears that a Switch version is almost confirmed, as it’s now been rated for the console in Korea.

Here’s the full announcement for River City Girls:

Shantae developer WayForward created Mighty Switch Force! for 3DS back in 2011, with a sequel that followed roughly two years later. Both eventually found their way to Wii U. All of these years later, WayForward looks to be revisiting the Mighty Switch Force! titles once again.

Mighty Switch Force! Collection was rated in Europe for Switch and other platforms today. The classification mentions four titles. This suggests that along with Mighty Switch Force! and Mighty Switch Force! 2, it’ll also include the Steam games Mighty Switch Force! Hose It Down and Mighty Switch Force! Academy.

WayForward is developing Shantae 5, the studio just announced. The game will be released on Switch later this year.

Unfortunately, not much is known at present. WayForward only mentions that Shantae 5 will offer “a brand-new adventure.”
