SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Little Witch Nobeta’, ‘Pronty’, Plus the Latest Sales and News

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for March 7th, 2023. I had planned to do a couple of reviews today, but the games in question ended up being a little longer than I expected so I’ll have to punt those a few days down the line. That leaves us with just a little slice of news, a couple of decent new releases to check out, and the usual lists of new and expiring sales. But hey, that’s not so bad. Let’s dig in and see what we’ve got!


Check Out Nintendo’s New Video for Mario Day

I don’t remember exactly when someone first noticed that March 10th looked kind of like Mario’s name if you shortened it, but it was surely a great day for Nintendo’s marketing team. The day is almost upon us again, and this year is a special one because the Super Mario Bros. movie is coming pretty soon. It’s also the 40th anniversary of the Famicom and of Luigi, but the universe is far too cowardly to do another Year of Luigi. Anyway, Nintendo has a new video up reminding us that every day is in fact Mario Day if you wish it to be. Just pull out your ol’ Switch and fire up a little of what our pal Mikhail likes to call the Bing-Bing-Wahoo, and you too can enjoy a Mario Day. Why, even slow news days can be Mario Days!

New Releases

Little Witch Nobeta ($49.99)

What if you mixed a Souls-like with a shooter, but also wanted it to be horny? Well, you’d probably end up with something like Little Witch Nobeta. You play as the titular witch, who is suffering from a bad bout of amnesia. She explores a mysterious castle, looking for answers and mostly finding trouble. There are already some extra skins you can buy as DLC in case you want to cavort around the castle looking like a bunny or a nurse. The game has gotten a fairly sunny reception on other platforms, so as long as the port wasn’t biffed here it may be worth looking into.

Pronty ($14.99)

You don’t see that many Metroidvania-style games set under the sea, but when you do they are usually pretty good. And yes, this one is pretty good. Not one to go running down the street shouting at the top of your voice about, but pretty good. You’re the sea guardian Pronty and need to deal with a sudden invasion of underwater mutants. Naturally, you’ll have to take care of that immediate problem, but you’ll also need to sort out why they are there, where they came from, and maybe a few other things along the way. This is another one with fairly good reviews for its computer version, which is always promising.


(North American eShop, US Prices)

Oh, Xeno Crisis is at a new low price. That’s a great pick if you enjoy games like Smash TV. Beyond that, we’ve got some solid sales on Drinkbox’s line-up, plus a few other odds and ends like JellyCar Worlds and Dead Cells. The outbox is small and has a few good games in it, but nothing I wouldn’t expect to see on sale again rather soon. do what you will with it.
