SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Fairy Tail’ Review, ‘Moon’ Coming West Next Month, Today’s New Releases, the Latest Sales, and More

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for July 31st, 2020. In today’s article, we’ve got a full review of Fairy Tail courtesy of Mikhail, summaries of all of the new releases that hit the eShop today, a little bit of news, and a bunch of new sales to check out. It’s a big fella today, of that there is no question. Let’s get into it!


The Amazing Anti-RPG ‘Moon’ Comes West on August 27th

I don’t normally do news on Fridays, but I’ll make an exception this time. Regular readers know I love the works of Onion Games and Yoshiro Kimura. They just have a ridiculous amount of heart, for lack of a more scientific term. The latest game from Onion actually reaches back into the past, when Mr. Kimura worked with a number of other people on a game at the now-defunct Love-de-Lic. Moon was a very unique PlayStation game that questioned a lot of the things we just accept in RPGs, and in doing so served as an inspiration for titles no less famous than Undertale. But the game never officially came out in English. That’s about to change as the game will make its extremely long-awaited debut next month on August 27th.


Fairy Tail ($59.99)

Ever since Koei Tecmo acquired Gust a few years ago, it has been interesting to see how the studio’s output has both increased and changed. Gust went from releasing one game in about a year on one or two systems to multiple games in a year across consoles and PC under Koei Tecmo. While the Atelier games had some quality issues around the time Atelier Firis hit PlayStation systems and PC, Gust knocked it out of the park with Atelier Ryza. The studio’s first game after Atelier Ryza is a licensed game based on Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail.

While most anime games are low quality arena brawlers (with games like Kill la Kill IF being the exception and being good), I always appreciate when developers try interesting things with source material. Dragon Ball FighterZ is easily one of the best anime games out there alongside Sega’s Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise. Gust has taken its own strengths with the Atelier series and brought the world and characters of Fairy Tail together through it. Fairy Tail in a lot of ways feels like an Atelier game with additions and changes. This is a double edged sword because it results in a lot of fetch quests but is definitely a step above a generic arena fighter.

Fairy Tail assumes you are familiar with the source material as it starts out with a grand battle tutorial that showcases the “Tenrou Island" arc of Fairy Tail. The remainder of the game covers the “Grand Magic Games" and “Tartaros" arcs with a bit of original storytelling thrown in. There is an in-game encyclopedia for lore and characters but it isn’t really a replacement for knowing things if you care about the characters.

The characters all have their original anime voice actors which is always welcome for fans of the anime but it is disappointing that there is no English dub option available. It definitely looks like Gust games will never have an English dub again sadly.

I mentioned that Fairy Tail feels like an Atelier game but with a Fairy Tail flavor. This is because the combat draws from Fairy Tail but the gathering, crafting (basic stuff), and progression feels a lot like an Atelier game. You control Natsu Dragneel initially and aim to grow your guild after it has been brought to the bottom of the ranks after the “Tenrou Island" story. This involves you doing all sorts of basic quests like taking on enemies, helping people, and more. A lot of this gets repetitive in the few dozens of hours you will put into Fairy Tail so keep that in mind as you work towards leveling up parts of the guild and improving the rank.

You get to control more characters and the game revolves mostly around the characters in the Fairy Tail guild. These characters are all hilarious and perfectly reflect how things are in the anime including the fan-service which there is a lot of in the game through costumes and animations.

Combat is turn-based with various combat options mapped to the face buttons. Each skill has a grid based area of effect as well. This adds another layer of strategy to the combat which varies in its difficulty curve as the game progresses. The skills look great in motion. The larger scale battles later on definitely amplify the spectacle on display with loads of enemies to deal with.

You can also initiate a magic chain once your Fairy Gauge is filled. This fills up after you and your party members attack. In a magic chain, you press specific buttons to execute more actions to continue a chain before finishing things off with a final skill called the Finisher. The number of attacks you can chain depend on character ranks. Some of the skills that involve other characters though feel cheap with 2D portraits used instead of 3D character animations for the most part.

With Atelier Ryza, Gust finally delivered a new release that actually looked and ran great on Nintendo Switch. Fairy Tail sadly isn’t great on Nintendo Switch. I’ve been playing it on PS4 and Nintendo Switch across both docked and handheld modes. The performance is erratic in both modes on Nintendo Switch while it is mostly smooth on PS4. Visually, the game isn’t a looker anyway with low resolution textures all over certain areas, but it is nice to see how the game scales on Nintendo Switch without many issues for visuals. While recent Gust releases have been good on Switch, Fairy Tail is a few steps back technically.

Overall, Fairy Tail is a competent JRPG and one of the better licensed anime games in recent years. While it doesn’t hold a candle to Gust’s better games like Atelier Ryza, Atelier Sophie, and even Blue Reflection, it is well worth your time if you’re a fan of the anime or Gust games. The original soundtrack also feels like a good fit compared to the anime music that sadly is absent here. Hopefully patches can improve the performance on Nintendo Switch because it isn’t great in its current state. -Mikhail Madnani

SwitchArcade Score: 3.5/5

New Releases

Fairy Tail ($59.99)

SwitchArcade Highlight!

Well, you’ve probably read Mikhail’s thoughts on this game since they’re, you know, right above this paragraph. But for those who may have skipped down here for whatever reason, this is a JRPG developed by Gust of Atelier Ryza fame based on the popular anime and manga series Fairy Tail. It’s a good game with some performance issues on the Switch that may bother some. If you’ll allow me to add my perspective, as someone who has very little familiarity with Fairy Tail but a great interest in JRPGs: the story is kind of hard to follow and it feels like it’s assuming the player will already be familiar with a lot of the details of the series. The mechanics are solid, though, and I think if you’re willing to forgive the technical problems and don’t mind looking up some plot stuff on the Internet to fill in gaps, it’s a solid enough RPG to hold you over for a bit.

Dodo Peak ($9.99)

The latest game to make its way from Apple Arcade to the Switch is Dodo Peak. It reminds me a little bit of the SEGA classic Flicky in that the goal is to gather up all your babies and take them to the exit. This one is played from an isometric viewpoint instead of a side-view, though. Compared to some games that make the transition from Apple Arcade, Dodo Peak is charging a very reasonable price, and the physical controls make a meaningful difference to the gameplay. Nothing to go running down the street shouting about, but if you enjoy pick-up-and-play arcade-style games, this is a solid choice at a fair price.

Paint Your Pet ($4.99)

It’s a coloring book. With animals. Not all of them would make good pets, mind you. I don’t think you should keep a lion as a pet. Simply not safe. But you could color one and pretend it’s your pet. You don’t even have to color it in normal lion colors. You can color it green and call it a Martian lion. The sky is the limit here, as long as you consider the sky to be just a bunch of pre-drawn art and a small set of colors to fill them in with. Perhaps amusing enough for young ones, but wouldn’t you rather just give them a normal coloring book? Probably not that far apart in price, and they can go wild in ways this title won’t allow.

Naught ($19.99)

Limbo, is that you? Longtime readers with sharp memories may remember Naught, which first debuted on iOS and Android several years ago and even had a re-release on iOS five years ago as Naught Reawakening. Well, this is more or less that game, except it costs five times as much and it won’t disappear from your purchase history anytime soon. It’s a platformer built around the idea of manipulating the environment around your character, and it is decent. It was definitely worth a few bucks back in the day for fans of platformers. In 2020, for twenty dollars, on a platform packed with outstanding platformers at the same price or lower? Ehhh.

Nicole ($18.99)

A lot of games that call themselves dating sims are really just simple choice-based narrative games with a few forks in the road, but Nicole seems like the real deal. Which is to say, you have to choose how to use your time in order to effectively improve your stats, gain favor with the boy of your choice, and make enough money to make it all happen. But if all of that sim stuff isn’t doing it for you, you can always switch to visual novel mode where you’re just reading. There are a bunch of familiar elements here, including four different boys who fit into the usual archetypes, a main plot that really ends up being more of a side plot, and multiple endings. It’s okay, but not much more than that. Still, it’s novel enough to have something like this on consoles in English that you may want to bite anyway.

The Executioner ($9.90)

Nine-ninety, hunh? Well, you’ll be a fun one to include in the sales lists in the future. This game has nothing to do with Mack Bolan and is instead a sort of sim/narrative adventure game that puts you in the shoes of an executioner. You torture and kill people for a living, and somehow try to keep sane while doing it. An interesting idea, but cumbersome writing takes it down a notch. The game is also fairly short, and while that’s not a sin all on its own, the lack of a satisfying close to the story certainly dampens the whole affair. I feel like this game is only a few steps away from being something special and there’s certainly treasure to be found here for the forgiving, but it’s a tough game to recommend wholeheartedly in its current state. It probably goes without saying, but the subject matter here is really dark, so if you don’t like that kind of thing? You were warned.

FootGoal! Tiki Taka ($4.99)

This game’s title sounds like what someone who wanted to mock soccer would call the sport. Enjoying the FOOTGOAL game, everyone? Anyway, you might think this is another soccer game, or perhaps you wouldn’t. The screenshot is right there, after all. So yeah, this is a foosball game. There’s local multiplayer support for two players, and a few different modes to dip into. Though when it says “different modes", it means Quick Play, a World Cup mode, and the aforementioned multiplayer. So… not that many, really. But for five dollars I could see this being amusing enough in the right context. And unlike a real foosball table, you don’t have to figure out where to store it when you get bored with it.

Tiny Racer ($9.99)

There are lots of racing games on the Switch, and this is certainly one of them. The appealing concept of racing small toy cars and other vehicles around full-scale environments is squandered thanks to lousy physics, poor collision detection, and irritating progression. There are 15 different tracks, 8 different vehicles, 3 difficulty levels, 3 game modes, and 2-player support via local multiplayer. But what you won’t find here is a game worth spending a tenspot on. At least in my opinion, anyway. You’re free to make your own choices; Chu-Chu died for your sins after all.

Lost Wing ($7.99)

This high-speed action game is apparently inspired by games like Zaxxon, but in practice its camera view and higher speed make for something quite different. Blast and zoom your way through three different worlds, avoiding obstacles, battling enemies, and taking down the bosses. There are multiple play modes, along with a variety of ships and weapons to enjoy. It’s a very straightforward game in most respects, but it’s also quite challenging. It knows what it wants to do and it does it with style. For the price, I think it’s a fair proposition.

Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises ($14.99)

We’ve seen a fair number of hidden object adventure games on the Switch recently, but it’s been a little bit since the last one from Artifex Mundi. Well, here we go with Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises, an adventure game that adopts a police drama-style setting. You’re a detective who has to help their partner, Duke, solve a particularly vexing murder case. Hint: it involves poison. Just when you think you’ve wrapped up the case, you realize it’s only just begun. Like most games from Artifex Mundi, Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises mixes a somewhat engaging pulpy story with some mild puzzle-solving to create a concoction that many find pleasing.

Dininho Adventures ($1.99)

In contrast to its well-made, highly affordable puzzle and shooter games, QUByte’s platformers haven’t fared very well. Dininho Adventures is the latest, and I’ll at least say that it has a better sense of style to it than the last effort from this publisher. You’ll travel through four different worlds, delivering eggs to their nest. There’s apparently an additional world you can unlock if you explore well. A timer counts how long you to take, a helpful option for those who like to do speedruns. Your best times for each stage can be compared with those of your friends, though I’m not sure what means the game uses to do that. Well, it’s only a couple of dollars.

Time Tenshi ($14.99)

This one is a visual novel about a team of time traveling ladies that you’ll be accompanying on their adventures. The main character is a young man named Kenji who has lost everything in a house fire. Things seem fine at first, but the baddies get their hands on a time travel device and timeline shenanigans begin! Help save the present and future, and perhaps develop a romance along the way. This is a reimagining of the original Time Tenshi‘s story, with an expanded storyline, improved artwork, and more. The series has its fans on PC, and I imagine it will find a following on the Switch as well.


(North American eShop, US Prices)

Well, it’s not the Friday deluge we sometimes see. But there are plenty of new sales to check out anyway, from titles like Slime-San that rarely go on sale to regular faces like Chasm. Perhaps more pressing is the weekend outbox, however. The Square Enix sale ends on Sunday, so it’s time to make some hard choices about how far you can stretch your wallet. The latest Activision sale is also coming to a close, but those will likely be back around before too long.

That’s all for today and this week, friends. We’re heading into the dog days of summer, and that means slightly fewer new games than we usually see.

I hope you all have a great weekend, and as always, thanks for reading!
