Believe it or not, I have never played a Fire Emblem game. Nor have I ever played a game in the Dynasty Warriors series. Jumping into this blend of those two giants was a daunting prospect; games with such a rich history can be hugely overwhelming when you throw yourself headfirst into a newer series entry and this time I was tackling twice the normal amount. Thanks to this, though, this review should give anyone in a similar position all the advice that they need.
I’ve got 98 problems, but choosing a Switch game ain’t one!

The Nintendo Switch hasn’t had too many early gory-type games. The Binding of Isaac could be one, for sure. But new eShop exclusive release Butcher makes no bones about its grotesque love-in for violence.
Developer Vblank Entertainment has announced a physical edition of Retro City Rampage DX for Nintendo Switch.
One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe is a mixture of ideas and game mechanics, attempting to elevate what would normally be a bland brawler into something more.

Sometimes games take themselves too seriously; other times they are utterly bizarre. Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition is most definitely the latter; even the game’s opening screen specifically says that “nothing you are about to see will make any sense”, yet that is probably one of the strongest things it has going for it. Set in a visually attractive, ancient Germanic future (because an ‘ancient future’ is a thing, of course), Lichtspeer is a game full of weird and wonderful enemies and an easy-to-understand gameplay concept. I’m sure there is one thing I’m forgetting, though… Oh yeah, it’s absolutely ruthless.
The recent Nintendo Direct showed off some rather exciting new announcements, but also put aside a lot of time to give us more information about Super Mario Odyssey.
