Tale of the Sword coming soon, new releases and more – SwitchArcade Round-Up – TouchArcade

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to SwitchArcade Round-Up for January 4, 2019. Today we have some scuttlebutt on a possible DLC sign for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate announced release dates for games coming in January, a bunch of new releases, and a gigantic sale that will make your cash flow cry for mercy. Let's save … using!


Datamining provides some tips for future Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC

Okay, first and foremost, it can be SPOILERS here, so if you don't want to know about possible upcoming characters, mosey on down to the next item. Serious.

Anyway, some fuel is added to the fire about the next DLC sign in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate . Nintendo made waves at The Game Awards by announcing Persona 5 s Joker would join in the battle and speculation has been running wild about possible candidates to fill the other tracks. A strong rumor that has passed rounds is that the hero of Dragon Quest 3 Loto / Erdrick, would be the next announced. Well, computer ministers have found some info that can support that rumor. Buried in the latest files are parameters that may be future characters. They are the code name, so some due diligence has been done.

Code names are as follows: & # 39; jack & # 39 ;, & # 39; brave & # 39; and & # 39; pack & # 39; The latter is definitely the Piranha Plant, known as the "Pakkun Flower" in Japan. The first one is probably Joker, either pointing to Atlus mascot Jack Frost or following the game card theme of his name. The middle? Well, there are many translations of the word "brave" in Japanese, but used in the sense of a person, as in "a brave", it is & # 39; yuusha & # 39 ;. The word also means "totally" and, for virtually any Japanese person who has any interest in games, it will most likely call the image of the main character to Dragon Quest . This does not necessarily point to Loto / Erdrick, but they are the most famous Dragon Quest heroes design, so … yes. Of course, all this can be completely wrong. That's how rumors are.

JackQuest: Tale of the Sword & # 39; Hits Turn on January 24

Hey, looking for another Metroidvania game for Switch? Okay, I understand if you're good to go, but if you feel like you're hungry for another round, say, January 24, I've got good news for you. JackQuest: The Sword's Sword will get to various platforms this month, and that includes the switch. It's reasonably priced at $ 9.99, so that's fine. You are welcome to check out the trailer that Blowfish Studios has released to see if it looks interesting to you.

You can have everything at your prey next week

It is art game, and then it is Mountain . I remember the first summer I worked for TouchArcade, this weird app from a filmmaker came out and made everyone very angry for a moment or two. Is Mountain a game? Is it a rip-off? Social comment? Friends, I do not know, but it seemed that everyone had a strong opinion on much of it. Everything which is more or less a follow-up of Mountain by David OReilly, seems to have drawn much smaller comments and ire. For what it is worth, it seems to have some more interactive elements, while retaining the beauty of its predecessor. Everything came out last year on other platforms, but if you want it on Switch, you can just check out the next week, plunk down $ 14.99, and your wish will come true.

New Releases

Tetraminos ($ 9.99)

You know, I can't put my finger on it, but this game reminds me of another game. Lumines maybe? Puyo Puyo ? Dr. Mario Well, anyway. Given how tight The Tetris Company weights their property and Nintendo's close relationship with them, I'm a bit surprised to see this game make its way to eShop at all. But here it is! If you do not want to pay for the correct Tetris on your Switch that I admit, currently only available in Frankenstein's Monster form via Puyo Puyo Tetris you can get this.

Pang Adventures Pang Adventures Pang Adventures ] is a new installment in Pang / Buster Bros. series, originally created by Mitchell Corporation. Stand at the bottom of the screen alone or with a friend and use the spear gun for pop bubbles in slightly smaller bubbles. Avoid dying. It's harder than it seems. There are some power ups that will help you, but there are also some weird scenic gimmicks you need to be careful about. I like these games well enough to play by myself, but take a friend or family member to a local player and you have some cheese, friends.

Gnomes Garden 2 ($ 4.99)

] It's like a free-game game that you see on your mobile, except that it's not free and it won't cut You buy extra boxes of gemstones or anything. It is also level-based and there are more than 40 of them. I don't know, this series has been around for a while, and it has obviously found an audience, so even if it's not for me, I'm not going to beat it. Collect resources, get the gnome to build things, use the things they produce to create more things, and so on.

Brick Breaker ($ 9.99)

From the folks behind the very original it is not that expensive, and it will probably absorb a good deal of free time if you get into it. Tetraminos Brick Breaker will come up with another oddly known title. That said, people have been cloning Breakout since the beginning of time, and although Atari cared, I doubt they will get the horses back in the barn at this time. Heck, I'm pretty sure one of Nintendo's earliest ventures in the home game was a Breakout clone. This one has a four-player mode you can enjoy in local games. It's very shiny and let's be honest, it's very hard to destroy a Breakout clone. Is it worth a teapot? It's up to you to decide.

Animus ($ 7.99)

A well-known name for mobile players, Animus is now available on Switch in improved form. If you do not know Animus it is more or less an indie on Dark Souls . It's not that big and truthful not so good, but I think the price of this one is pretty nice for what you get. I'd say it's worth the extra money to grab Dark Souls first, but if you're done with that game, you can have fun with it. Just be aware that this is a game from a relatively new, small developer and not a full budget release from a luscious veteran developer and one of the industry's largest publishers.

ACA NEOGEO Ragnagard ($ 7.99) [19659033]

I already gave opinion on this game when it was announced, but yes, I am not a fan of Ragnagard . NEOGEO has lots of warriors, and I don't want to say that there are no hidden treasures buried under King of Fighters and Fatal Fury games, but Ragnagard is just a little bad. And unlike other not-so-hot NEOGEO warriors, this is a blunt-ugly one. They tried to do a faux-3D thing with pre-rendered sprites, and it just looks awful. Even worse on today's high-resolution screens. But Hamster has given it his usual care, so if you are a fan of Ragnagard this is all you could hope for, I guess.

Mad Age & This Guy ($ 4.99)

SwitchArcade Recommended!

So what you have here is a mix of a box-pushing Sokoban puzzle and Bomberman all painted up with a cute steampunk art style. And hey, it's pretty good! There is no multiplayer, so it's definitely more for single-player Bomberman fans (all six of you), but it does well. You have 54 levels across 3 worlds, which should give you several hours of scratching. The graphics are cute, the music is nice and it is a very good value for the price. This is the kind of tribute I like.

99Seconds ($ 2.99)

Can you stay alive for 99 seconds? It seems easy enough for most of us, right? Well, the poor hero in this game has things a little quieter. For our non-animated protagonist, 99 seconds can literally be a lifetime. Hang in there as pure chaos unfolds around you, admire as the levels become increasingly difficult, join some friends to see who is the most horrible on this type of game. It does what it needs to do and it makes it cheap. I'm not really looking for 99Seconds but from a game perspective it is clear which parts of the screen you should or should not occupy, which is important.

Fitness Boxing ($ 49.99)

I guess you can call this torch carrier for Wii Fit games, although it is much narrower in scope. Grab the Joycon's and beat, beat, hit a slimmer waist. There are 20 licensed songs, albeit instrumental versions of them, and you will unlock them when you achieve your goals. You can also unlock new trainers and outfits for them, so there is a nice little drip-feed thing going on here. Since it only relies on Joycon's, it is up to you to move your body as the game wants you to. You can play the game just fine to sit on the couch, but you won't get the beach booth you require with that lack of hassle. Does it work ? I don't know, but if you can't have a good time with air punching for an instrumental version of Aqua's Cartoon Heroes I literally don't know how to satisfy you.


] Wowza, just when you thought you were safe, comes here a New Year's sale. And it's a doozy! There are so many great games at a discount here, I don't know what to recommend. Octopath Traveler ? Mario Kart 8 Deluxe ? Valkyria Chronicles 4 ? Splatoon 2 ? I don't know, you can probably see some things here that you already have an eye on, so be wild. Make sure you take Iconoclasts if you don't already have it. I think it's the first time it's been on sale, and that's just fine.
