Welcome to the SwitchArcade Roundup for April 20th, covering the latest Switch news, releases, and games on sale! Hope you're enjoying this glorious day by partaking...in Switch games, of course. Also, Sleep released their first album in a couple decades, so go listen to that! Normally, Friday's a busy day for releases, but with Nintendo Labo and then God of War on PS4, it's probably smart for developers to stay out of the way. Also, there are so many games out there that we could all use like, a month, to catch up. Oh, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze comes out in a couple weeks? The ride never ends!..

Hey folks, welcome back to the SwitchArcade Roundup. Sorry the Roundup has been away for a couple of days - technical issues and some personal stuff got in the way! I'm back, and ready to deliver the SwitchArcade Roundup for you. We've got a few days of new releases to cover, a couple new game announcements, a notable delay, and a couple of horror game sales worth checking out. Let's get into it, shall we?..




Welcome to the latest SwitchArcade Roundup, where we're covering the Sega Ages announcement and what it means for the Virtual Console on Switch, along with some interesting new sales on the Switch. This might be a slow week based on the few games listed in the coming soon section on the eShop, but for whatever reason, some games actually don't show up! Is it because some release dates don't get finalized until the last minute? Or is there just some weird system going on where only some developers can announce release dates and others can't? And why are some developers not taking preorders? I guess there's an issue if the game gets delayed, like Galaxy on Fire had, but still, seems like you'd want to take as much money as possible from potential customers before the game releases. Who knows! Video game marketing is weird. ..

Welcome to the SwitchArcade Roundup for April 13th, where we're covering the latest Switch news, new releases, and games that are currently on sale! Sega dropped a surprise Football Manager Touch release for the Switch today, so the European segment of TouchArcade is quite excited in particular.

Welcome to the SwitchArcade Roundup for April 12th, where we're covering all the new Nintendo Switch releases, and a couple pieces of news! It's the busiest release day in weeks, with a ton of new indies out now on the eShop, with a few gems in particular like Breakforcist Battle, Don't Starve, and Burly Men at Sea. But seriously, today's jam-packed with new titles, so let's get the news stuff out of the way first before we dive into all the new goodies:..

Welcome to the SwitchArcade Roundup for April 11th, where we're covering the latest news, releases, and sales for Nintendo Switch! Two new games today, with a bunch hitting this week. And then, Shovel Knight's on sale, y'know, if you needed an excuse to spend more money. We also talk about Bleed 2 and why you should consider picking it up before it goes off of sale. And there's always more announcements. Make it stop! Actually, don't make it stop, what am I saying, literally drown me in cool Switch games, please...

Welcome to the SwitchArcade Roundup for April 10th, where we're covering the latest releases, sales, and news for Nintendo Switch games. Capcom's got Mega Man X games on the way, we know when the Death Road will arrive, and different games about haunted high schoolers are here in the Roundup!

Welcome to the SwitchArcade Roundup for April 9th, where we're covering the latest news, and the Nicalis mega-sale! There is one new release today, but the real highlight of the day is the solid collection of Nicalis titles that are on sale right now. There's some cool ports and originals to blow your money on, and then there are more games that will cause you to spend your money! Frankly, this column is just one giant excuse to spend money on more games than you could possibly need in your life. We are here for each other's financial ruin...

Welcome to the latest SwitchArcade Roundup, covering the latest news, sales, and releases for Nintendo Switch! A slow Friday for releases with only two new titles, but a few interesting news pieces have surfaced. Also, with a ton of sales ending on April 5th, the "Games on Sale" section finally looks somewhat reasonable again, as opposed to the crowded mess that it was for a while there. Will Nintendo be more selective with the games that can go on sale and when in the future? We can only hope, because things were getting quite nutter there for a while. Anyway, the time for dawdling has ceased. Let us now get into the Switch goodness, shall we?..

Welcome to the latest SwitchArcade Roundup, where we're covering some interesting tidbits of news on the Nintendo Switch, and running down all the new releases from the past couple of days! PAX East is going on right now, so expect some news on titles on the show floor to pop out, but actual news might be slow, as PR tries to survive four days in Boston. Still, the flow of new releases continues unabated, and there's some interesting stuff still happening around the world of the Switch. Let's dive in, shall we?..

Welcome to the latest edition of the SwitchArcade Roundup! We're covering a few new releases today, some news and upcoming Switch titles, and running down some more sales. I apologize in advance for all the terrible puns you're about to see in one sale post. Or do I? Regardless, there's a lot of puns. And a lot of sales, so I must respond in kind...

Welcome to the SwitchArcade Roundup for April 2nd, where we're covering the latest happenings in the world of Nintendo Switch!

Welcome to the SwitchArcade Roundup for March 30th, where we're covering the latest Nintendo Switch news, releases, and sales! A happy Easter to everyone, and if you're spending the time with (or away from) family, then you've got plenty of games on the Switch to pass the time. ARMS' Testpunch begins tonight, the arcade Punch-Out is now available on Switch, and I reminisce about Toki Tori with its Switch version now available. Let's dive right into the news, today's jam-packed:..

Welcome to the latest SwitchArcade roundup, covering the latest in Nintendo Switch news, releases, and sales! If you're still playing Super Mario Odyssey, two new outfits are available: an outfit inspired by the Satellaview, an SNES add-on, and a baseball helmet and uniform. Those pinstripes sure look like the Seattle Mariners' shade of Northwest Green that they use, hmm.....

Welcome to the latest SwitchArcade Roundup, where we're covering today's latest Switch news, sales, and providing some impressions of twin-stick shooter/clicker Vostok Inc. No new releases today, so it's a good time to catch up on that backlog and check out some of the sales. Also, try not to let your system explode, of course. Nintendo has some advice on that topic, as users are reporting that the Nyko Switch dock is bricking Switch systems on 5.0. Also, Nintendo provided a rare on-record response about third-party Switch docks:..

Welcome to the latest SwitchArcade Roundup, where we are covering the latest in Nintendo Switch game announcements, releases, and sales!

We've got some news about the intriguing multiplayer shooter Aftercharge, a new ARMS trial, and a horror experience in Outlast 2 among other games. Let's jump in and see what's new in the world of the Nintendo Switch:..

GDC 2018: 'Valthirian Arc' is a RPG Character Trainer Coming to Nintendo Switch

Valthirian Arc is a tricky game to describe succinctly as there's a lot going on in this game. At its core, you build an academy to train up loads of students in some sort of fantasy medieval Hogwarts equivalent, then of course things go pear shaped and then you need to use your best and brightest students to do all sorts of battling. Check out the trailer:..

Welcome to the latest SwitchArcade Roundup, where we're discussing a bunch of Nintendo Switch eShop sales! Surprisingly, this is a slow release day for the Switch, with only one new Friday title, the 2D Dark Souls-inspired Castle of Heart, out today. And there isn't a whole lot of news fit to print. So let's run down a ton of the sales that are on the eShop now, because you need more Switch games...

GDC 2018: 'Shift Quantum' is an Extremely Stylish Puzzle Platformer Coming to Nintendo Switch

During GDC 2018 this week we got something of a blast from the past as we checked out Shift Quantum from Fishing Cactus, which is set to be published by Red Panda on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. The origins of the game date back to over a decade ago with the original Shift Flash game, which you can still play today. The main hook is that each level is made up of black areas and white areas, and pressing the shift key would switch which area would be the "active" one. So say the ground was black and the sky was white, hitting the shift key would flip things so the white would become the ground and the black become the sky. This is used to solve various puzzle platforming levels, and that original Shift even made its way to iPhone way back in 2009 and was a perfect fit for the touchscreen. Shift Quantum takes that defining shifting mechanic and builds it out with new levels, a fantastic new art style, a compelling narrative, and even a fully featured level editor. While sadly a mobile version of Shift Quantum isn't in the cards, it's at least coming to the Nintendo Switch as well as the other major consoles and PC, so check out our hands-on time with the Switch version below and look for a launch in the next coming months...

Our latest SwitchArcade Roundup is jam-packed with new Nintendo Switch releases, sales, and news. While North America isn't seeing the kinds of sales that Europe has right now, there's still a whole lot of discounts going on with the US/Canada eShop. And there's some...eclectic new releases, that's for sure. It's a busy day and we can barely even get through the best sales today, stay tuned tomorrow for the noteworthy other sales you should pick up on, but for now, let's dive into what's hot:..
