Titan Quest confirmed for Switch

Titan Quest, the Diablo-esque action RPG from developer Iron Lore Entertainment, has been announced for Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

Originally released in 2006 and published by the now defunct THQ, Titan Quest sees players fight and collect loot across Ancient Greece, Egypt and China on a quest to defeat the Titans after they escape from their ancient prison. The gameplay itself will be very familiar to fans of Blizzard’s Diablo series.

Two versions of the game will be released on consoles — a Standard Edition, which includes the Immortal Throne expansion, and a Collector’s Edition, which ships with a helmet replica, a notepad and a premium box.

Switch has Sold 10 Million Worldwide

While gamers can’t stop talking about Switch and its plethora of critically and commercially acclaimed games, none of that would mean too much if the system itself wasn’t selling; fortunately, that’s not something Nintendo has to worry about. Since its launch, we’ve received several updates about sales numbers, and Nintendo released another in the form of the following Tweet:

SteamWorld Heist is Getting a Switch Port this Month

Image & Form’s SteamWorld series has been a steady supplier of great indie experiences on Nintendo systems for a while with their latest game, SteamWorld Dig 2, being highly-acclaimed when it launched on Switch earlier this year. Their previous game, SteamWorld Heist, was also very well received despite turning away from its platforming roots and embracing an interesting take on 2D, turn-based strategy. While one can enjoy Heist on a number of systems, including Wii U and 3DS, gamers will soon to be able to play it on Switch as well.

For Switch, SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition will offer the same great game alongside its expansion, The Outsider, in one convenient package for the price of $19.99. However, this is more than just a straightforward port as gamers will now be able to use touch controls when playing the game in portable mode. This new feature should prove especially useful given the importance of precise aiming in the games strategically rich gameplay.

What’s even better is that gamers won’t have to wait too long as it will be available in North America and Europe on December 28. Japan will have to wait a little longer as it isn’t planned for release over there until sometime early next year.

Gorogoa Brings Beautiful Hand-Drawn Visuals to Switch

Gorogoa Brings Beautiful Hand-Drawn Visuals to Switch

If there are two things small, independent developers seem to love, it’s creating unique, new experiences and making games for Nintendo Switch. For developer and artist Jason Roberts, this sentiment seems to ring true as his game, Gorogoa, will be launching on Switch very soon!

Gorogoa is an interesting looking puzzle game featuring thousands of hand drawn panels that do more than just sit around and look pretty. Gameplay revolves around moving, examining, and manipulating the images in order to solve puzzles spread across them. The concept is somewhat hard to explain in words, but this newly released trailer seems to do a pretty good job of showing it off.

Gorogoa is being published by Annapurina Interactive and will release on Switch on December 14.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection Coming to Switch

Earlier this year, Switch received Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, an enhanced version of the arcade classic with HD visuals and a pair of new fighters. Sales of the title exceeded Capcom’s expectations, and the company quickly began to make Nintendo’s hybrid platform a bigger priority. Now the system will play host to a dozen other titles in the franchise when Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection releases in 2018!

The compilation spans much of the Street Fighter franchise’s history, excluding the Marvel crossover games and a handful of more recent series entries. The game will include:

After a sparse early investment in Switch, Capcom has been showing a lot more interest in the platform, of late. In a recent interview, the company stated a desire to bring more titles to the platform that have never released on a Nintendo system. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 certainly fits that description, though it’s nice to see multiplatform titles like Mega Man 11 and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, as well!

Romancing SaGa 2 is releasing worldwide on December 15 for Nintendo Switch, Square Enix has announced. The PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, and PC versions also launch on the same day.

The Next Splatfest Has a Christmas Theme

The Next Splatfest Has a Christmas Theme

Ugly sweaters have long been associated with Christmas. The two are so synonymous that ugly sweater Christmas parties quickly became a holiday tradition, over the last few years. Of course, socks have also been stereotyped as a terrible Christmas gift as well, though they still haven’t found the same redemptive holiday party. Next weekend, Splatoon 2 players can finally decide which is truly the worst gift!

Players should remember they are not voting on which is preferable, but rather which gift is worse to find under the tree on Christmas morning. A vote for one is, essentially, an endorsement for the other!

The Splatfest will begin December 15 at 9 PM PT. Which side are you on? Let us know in the comments below!
