Good day mild readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Spherical-Up for June tenth, 2021. Right this moment is Thursday, and meaning it’s time for an enormous drop of recent releases. Probably the most high-profile title of the day is Ninja Gaiden: Grasp Assortment, which brings Koei Tecmo’s collection of 3D ninja motion video games to the Swap for the primary time. There are many different attention-grabbing video games on the listing right now, together with a few stinkers. We’ve received summaries for every thing, naturally. We even have the lists of incoming and outgoing gross sales so that you can take a look at. Let’s get to enterprise!

New Releases

Ninja Gaiden: Grasp Assortment ($39.99)

SwitchArcade Spotlight!

Koei Tecmo brings the Ninja Gaiden trilogy of 3D motion video games to the Swap on this assortment. To be exact, you get Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. Whereas there are many criticisms that might be made in regards to the alternative of variations and the way effectively the ports have been executed, you actually can’t argue with the worth in your greenback right here. I’ll have a full evaluate of this one quickly, however what I can say for now’s that the primary sport has been ported fairly effectively whereas the opposite two have some technical flaws that could be irritating to some gamers. Even with these issues, there’s nonetheless loads of good occasions available right here.

Piczle Cells ($4.99)

SwitchArcade Spotlight!

Rating Studios goes in a unique course with the newest sport within the Piczle collection of puzzle video games. Every of the sport’s 100 phases has an assortment of slimes positioned across the board. It’s important to slide them into one another to merge them till there’s just one slime remaining. There are guidelines about how they’ll mix, and numerous slimes have gimmicks you’ll must study. There are additionally gimmicks within the phases themselves, which permits the sport to ramp up the problem fairly properly because it goes. A nifty little puzzle sport for an inexpensive value.

Age of Sokoban ($2.99)

It is a Sokoban-style sport with 54 ranges of stuff-pushing motion. You already know the enterprise by now. Push the objects to the designated areas with out getting them caught anyplace. An added twist on this sport is the presence of enemies, so it’s a must to work round them as greatest as you’ll be able to. There are three totally different themes to the degrees, so there’s a minimum of a little bit of visible selection. It doesn’t appear to be essentially the most high-class of video games, but it surely’s a three-dollar Sokoban sport so I’m unsure what we might fairly count on right here.

Arcade Archives Pirate Pete ($7.99)

A few of our older readers could keep in mind a Taito sport known as Jungle Hunt from the arcades or certainly one of its quite a few house ports. Enjoyable factor about that sport: its unique model, Jungle King, ran afoul of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ property resulting from its liberal, er, borrowing from Tarzan. It ended up being reconfigured a couple of alternative ways to get round that, and 1982’s Pirate Pete is among the outcomes. When it comes to gameplay, that is an identical to Jungle Hunt. It’s simply been given a unique coat of paint, having you management a pirate as he tries to rescue a girl pirate from some dangerous pirates. It’s fulfilling sufficient given its age, and as we could not ever see the unique sport on Arcade Archives for authorized causes, this does serve to protect and show the gameplay of that troublesome traditional.

Sable’s Grimoire ($14.99)

Sable needs to grow to be a world-famous magic researcher, and after being accepted to the distinguished Amadronia Magic Academy he takes an enormous step in direction of that aim. Sadly, it doesn’t take him lengthy to appreciate that this academy isn’t precisely what it appears. On this visible novel, you’ll work together with six totally different monster lady heroines, making decisions that may ultimately lead you to certainly one of sixteen totally different endings. Some good options like a route map visualizing your decisions and checkpoints that allow you to hop round as you want even in case you didn’t save make this a bit friendlier than the common sport of this type.

Kirakira Stars Idol Undertaking Ai ($10.00)

It is a visible novel about childhood buddies who meet once more after a few years. Nobuyuki is a producer for an leisure firm, however he’s had a foul run of luck within the intensely aggressive enterprise. Compelled to go away his worker dorm, he occurs to satisfy his previous pal Ai. She lets him transfer in along with her, and upon listening to of his woes she decides to strive her hand at turning into a pop idol. Can these two save Nobuyuki’s firm and status? Having performed loads of visible novels in my time, I can say: it’s extremely doubtless.

Shieldwall Chronicles: Swords of the North ($7.99)

Oh hey, I do know this one. Wave Gentle brings one other of its strategy-RPG video games to the Swap, this time calling on Shieldwall Chronicles to hitch the line-up. As is commonly the case with this developer’s video games, you’ll be able to select from a staggering variety of uncommon characters to construct your staff. There’s a barely better emphasis on constructing a story right here in comparison with the Demon’s Rise video games, which is one thing that I do know a few of you may be completely happy to listen to. As for the battles, they’re not terribly totally different from what you’ll have seen within the developer’s different video games. However hey, if it isn’t damaged, there’s no want to exchange it. I’ll have a evaluate of this one quickly in case you’re on the fence about it.

Alchemist Journey ($19.99)

An alchemist who has misplaced her reminiscences wanders the land looking for her lacking daughter and husband on this action-RPG. As she explores, she’ll get better extra of her reminiscences, however will she be pleased with what she learns? There’s loads of hack-and-slash enjoyable available right here, however there are additionally loads of attention-grabbing puzzles to unravel utilizing your alchemy. On account of its considerably difficult mechanics, that is going to take a bit extra endurance to play than your common Diablo-style journey. However with a deep story, first rate visuals, and difficult environments to make your method by means of, it’s definitely worth the little little bit of teething ache to start with. Oh, and one cool function is {that a} second participant can take part for native co-op play, taking management of your flying homonculus. Critiques are pretty good for the pc model. I’m to see the way it has fared within the transition to Swap.

Lifetime of Fly 2 ($9.99)

Lifetime of Fly 2, or as we name it within the Carterverse 2 Fly 2 Life, doesn’t break the mould set by the primary sport. It’s simply one other 13 brief tales in regards to the life and ideas of flies in numerous areas. Whereas there may be some pleasure available in flying across the environments, most the attraction of this collection comes from its bizarre, oddly philosophical writing. I really feel like that sort of enjoyment has diminishing returns, however there’s nonetheless sufficient to it to justify this sequel’s existence. If you happen to like the primary, seize this. If you happen to haven’t performed the unique, it’s most likely higher to do this earlier than you hit this one up.

ANIMUS: Revenant ($23.99)

The third sport within the Animus collection of Darkish Souls-ish action-adventures is now out there for the Swap. Certainly, this marks an attention-grabbing level within the historical past of the collection, as I imagine this title is debuting on Swap somewhat than being ported from cell. It actually seems a bit spiffier, although that will simply be my eyes enjoying tips on me. What I’m positive hasn’t modified an excessive amount of is the deliberate, skill-based fight that has scratched the Souls itch for gamers left hanging by nothing additional after one-and-done Swap port of the unique Darkish Souls. Look, this most likely isn’t nearly as good as an genuine Souls sport, but it surely’s doubtless one of the best we’re going to get at this level on the Swap except Bandai Namco does one thing shocking. Definitely value a glance in case you loved both of the earlier titles.

Puzzle Field 3 in 1 ($4.99)

Oh no, I acknowledge that screenshot type. Benjamin Kistler, come on down. On this handheld-only sport, you get three knock-offs of in style puzzlers. There’s a Threes! rip-off, a Slitherlink/PathPix rip-off, and one different sport whose, ahem, supply of inspiration I can’t fairly pinpoint. All of them share belongings, they usually’re not spectacular belongings both. Effectively, a minimum of it’s low cost.

Pix Jungle Adventures ($4.99)

Kistler’s stuff all the time is available in pairs, and right here’s the second of his releases right now. I don’t wish to accuse anybody of something flippantly, however I really feel like he could have copied that sprite from a Woblyware sport. Possibly Random Heroes? Anyway, it is a generic platformer that gives up 55 ranges of shoddy platforming with out even the smallest trace of a contemporary thought in any of them. Cash? Test. Query blocks? You guess. Mushrooms? A giant ol’ shameless affirmative. Frankly, if Ben ripped off his character sprite from one other sport, that may simply be the cherry on prime of this “give-no-figs” trash sundae.

That is the listing on the time I’m penning this, however there’s an absolute avalanche coming within the subsequent a number of hours. We’ll make amends for all of that tomorrow, however I needed to provide you a heads-up so that you just don’t blow your entire money. For now, there are some Bandai Namco video games value contemplating, in addition to the No Extra Heroes titles. The outbox is a bit on the massive facet, however there’s nothing in there that received’t be again round quickly. Do take a look by means of as all the time, although.
