Anyone who’s a big fan of tower defence games – this reviewer spent weeks enjoying Starship Patrol on DSiWare before the service was discontinued last year – will be hoping for a great representative of the genre to join the Switch eShop offering line-up. Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime could prove to be the game to fill that gap.
By now, you no doubt already know whether or not a new Lego game is going to be your cup of tea. Lego: The Ninjago Movie Videogame does little to change this – but that’s okay… mostly.
It took Night School Studio’s Oxenfree a matter of minutes to have me hooked. The game, a supernatural, kinda scary story about a group of teenagers who uncover something mysterious and ancient on a remote island, has the tropes of many horror films – but replaces the clichés with a clever tale about relationships and growing up that is certain to leave a lasting impression on those that experience this title.
Developer Vblank Entertainment has announced a physical edition of Retro City Rampage DX for Nintendo Switch.
Thimbleweed Park was born thanks to a (very) successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2014. Designed by Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, the title is actually a spiritual successor to previous games made by the duo – Maniac Mansion, and The Secret of Monkey Island – which were released in 1987 and 1990 respectively. The nods are obvious – the graphics and gameplay are reminiscent of games of this time – and whilst I never had the chance to play those games myself, a quick look online will tell you that players are falling head-over-heels with nostalgia. So far, so good, then.
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.
Ron Gilbert has announced via Twitter that his game, Thimbleweed Park, will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch next week.
Night School Studio has today revealed on Twitter that their critically acclaimed adventure title Oxenfree will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch.
Square Enix have revealed that their remake of Fear Effect will be headed to the Switch next year.
It won’t take long for this game to take its troll on you!
