In right this moment’s article, we’ve acquired summaries of the entire new releases of the day, together with two NEOGEO Pocket Colour fighters and a pleasant bundle of puzzles. We’ve additionally acquired full lists of incoming and outgoing gross sales, with nice video games like Cat Quest, Iconoclasts, and Tremendous Hydorah getting good reductions. No information part right this moment, however the one main information on the time of writing was the announcement that indie darling Braid shall be making its approach to the platform. Let’s get to the brand new stuff!

New Releases

Piczle Strains DX Bundle ($19.99)

SwitchArcade Spotlight!

Hey buddy, do you want Slitherlink/Pathpix-type logic puzzles? Do you want… saving cash? Have you ever one way or the other not purchased Piczle Strains DX and Piczle Strains DX 500 Extra Puzzles but? If the reply to all three of these is “sure”, have I acquired a bundle for you. It packs in each of the aforementioned titles, providing a 5 greenback financial savings over shopping for them individually. You get a stupendous 1,100 puzzles to resolve, providing one thing like a pair hundred hours of enjoyment. The wild factor is that for those who seize this bundle throughout the launch sale, you may get it for a mere ten bucks. For those who’re studying this after the launch sale, you should definitely test on the costs of the person video games simply to verify this bundle’s value remains to be in your favor.

King of Fighters R-2 ($7.99)

SwitchArcade Spotlight!

One of many earlier combating video games for the NEOGEO Pocket Colour, King of Fighters R-2 however stays a really satisfying combating recreation with tons to supply. There are 14 characters out there initially, with an additional 11 variants that you simply’ll unlock by way of play. Because it’s roughly based mostly on King of Fighters ’98, you may count on a wide selection of the extra common characters from that title. The gameplay is enjoyable, and Code Mystics have achieved a stunning job with the interface and choices, even going as far as to will let you play utilizing contact controls on an on-screen NEOGEO Pocket Colour.

Samurai Shodown! 2 ($7.99)

SwitchArcade Spotlight!

The opposite NEOGEO Pocket Colour launch right this moment was really already made out there earlier than on the Change as a pre-order bonus for the brand new Samurai Shodown. What’s neat about this one is that it’s a bite-sized adaptation of Samurai Shodown 64: Warriors Rage, that includes all however one of many characters from that recreation. On prime of that, it provides Charlotte and Yagyu Jubei. Since SNK in all probability isn’t going to launch ports of Hyper NEOGEO 64 video games anytime quickly, that is your finest probability for getting a few of the expertise of taking part in one of many lesser-known Samurai Shodown titles. There are fifteen characters to select from right here, and Code Mystics has achieved a wonderful job of bringing the sport to the Change with a number of choices.

RogueCube ($four.99)

That is principally the poor man’s Enter the Gungeon. You possibly can play by way of the marketing campaign both solo or with associates by way of native multiplayer, or head right into a aggressive battle with those self same associates. The characters are all cubes, and the degrees are procedurally generated, so there’s the title taken care of. You get three completely different dice characters to select from initially, with a number of extra out there when you unlock them. There are 37 weapons starting from swords to bazookas with an entire lot in between, and 11 completely different ranges to rampage by way of. Not unhealthy in any respect for 5 , to be sincere.

Retro Arcade Shooter – Assault from Pluto ($5.99)

This recreation claims to supply three traditional arcade shoot-em-up video games in a single, however there isn’t fairly as a lot selection as you’ll hope given an announcement like that. There are horizontal and vertical shoot-em-up phases in right here, with the latter being a bit higher than the previous. Nonetheless, nothing in right here is de facto all that well-made relative to different shooters across the identical value on the Change. I can’t see any cause why somebody would trouble taking part in this over roughly 73 different shoot-em-ups on the platform, however each recreation is somebody’s favourite. Some video games stretch my perception in that greater than others, although.

Metropolis Bus Driving Simulator ($11.99)

Yeah, it’s one other considered one of these. Just like the a number of video games much like it which have launched on Change during the last couple of months, Metropolis Bus Driving Simulator is a port of a free-to-play cell recreation that largely hangs its hat on letting you drive quite a lot of autos in an city surroundings. There are missions to finish and free-roam mode for whenever you simply need to cruise round in a college bus. There are twelve completely different buses in all that you simply’ll be driving, and the sport claims it makes use of a enjoyable and lifelike driving mannequin, which appears to me to be a cake that you simply can’t have and in addition eat in the case of buses. Effectively, somebody is shopping for these items. If it’s you, right here’s one other one.

Wordify ($2.99)

Effectively, it’s laborious to mess up a phrase recreation. And this one isn’t going to interrupt that rule. You’re given a bunch of letters and want to suit them onto the crossword structure such that the phrases work. You get 250 of those puzzles in your three bucks, and there are ten completely different colour themes so to change issues up visually every now and then. You possibly can play utilizing buttons or contact controls, with the latter being a bit extra comfy to make use of. Not a nasty selection for those who get pleasure from phrase video games and don’t need to spend an excessive amount of cash right this moment.

Hey, there’s the massive checklist of recent gross sales I used to be anticipating after I went house final night time.

That’s all for right this moment and this week, associates. Past a number of shock bulletins, it was a little bit of a quiet week. Subsequent week must be a little higher, however not a lot higher. At the least so far as new releases go, anyway. I do count on a giant summer time sale to kick off sooner or later within the subsequent few weeks, however that’s only a hunch. Effectively, we’ll make the perfect of it anyway. There’s all the time the backlog, in any case. I hope you all have a terrific weekend, and as all the time, thanks for studying!
