Super Saurio Fly Soars on Switch Next Week

Next week, the Switch eShop will play host to Super Saurio Fly, a 2D platformer with a prehistoric twist: players take on the role of Saurio, a pterodactyl in search of its eggs. Developed by FraxelGames, the title features screen-filling bosses and some very attractive visuals. We’ve embedded the game’s trailer below!

Using the titular hero’s ability to fly, players will traverse 16 levels in an attempt to rescue all of Saurio’s eggs and defeat the kidnappers. While 2D platformers seem to be fairly common on the eShop, Super Saurio Fly certainly looks like it has the production values to compete with the system’s best.

Unfortunately, while Super Saurio Fly has been out on Steam for a couple of weeks now, no reviews for the game are currently available to give us a hint at how the game will shape up on Switch. There won’t be much of a wait to find out, however, as the title arrives on the eShop April 26!

New Musynx Trailer and Box Art Revealed

Nintendo has revealed on its website the box art for Musynx, the upcoming rhythm game developed by I-Inferno.

As the box art strongly suggests, Musync is a music game featuring classic hardcore rhythm gameplay mechanics.

The game, which is available on mobile devices right now, also got a brand new trailer recently showing off some gameplay footage, which you can see below:

Yuppie Psycho is Switch Bound

Yuppie Psycho is Switch Bound

Having previously worked on The Count Lucanor, indie developer Baroque Decay has some experience in creating unique adventures tinged with horror. Now, the team has announced their next game, and it looks like they are once again experimenting with a lot of ideas in terms of gameplay, setting, and story.

Yuppie Psycho is another horror/adventure game, but it moves the action to a ’90s office building. Players assume the role of a young new hire at Sintracorp, the world’s biggest corporation; however, in addition to his work, the new hire has also been tasked by mysterious forces to investigate the evil witchcraft allegedly at the core of the company’s success. The trailer shows off the game’s visual design which features retro-styled gameplay and anime influenced cutscenes. The developers have also cited film makers like David Cronenberg and David Lynch as inspirations as well as games like the Silent Hill franchise and Deadly Premonition.

Unfortunately, a release date has yet to be announced, but the concept and trailer will probably be enough to make at least a few gamers interested.

NBA Playgrounds 2 Announced

NBA Playgrounds 2 Announced

NBA Playgrounds was a welcome addition to many a gamer’s library. Sports games infused with over-the-top, arcade action used to be common, but over the years they seemed to fall out of favor; until NBA Playground came out, that is. Now, thanks to the developers at Sabre Interactive, fans will get to take to the courts again for some less than realistic basketball.

Naturally, NBA Playgrounds 2 is expanding on its predecessor. A season mode is being added for some much needed single-player depth while more competitive players will be happy to see ranked leagues in the form of the Playgrounds Championship. General online play has also been improved thanks to four player matches and dedicated servers.

Playgrounds 2 currently has a moderately vague 2018 release window, so stay on the lookout for more information as to when exactly it will be bouncing to Switch.

Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story is Coming to Switch This Month

Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story is Coming to Switch This Month

One of the greatest things about indie gaming is that, with smaller expenses, developers have more freedom to deliver truly unique experiences. Accidental Queens’ A Normal Lost Phone did just that, with a compelling narrative and setup that we really enjoyed when the title debuted on Switch earlier this year. Fans of the game will be happy to know that a sequel, entitled Another Lost Phone, will appear on Switch in just a few short weeks!

The title will apparently closely follow the same formula as A Normal Lost Phone, guiding players through the phone and using the various messages, apps and photographs to tell a story about the phone’s owner. It will be interesting to see how the game’s narrative differs from the original game, and whether or not Accidental Queens can still find new ways of crafting gameplay around the setup. Hopefully the experience will remain just as intriguing the second time around.

Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story will release on Switch April 26. Stay tuned to Nintendojo for a review in the near future!

Dark Souls: Remastered Pushed Back to Summer

Dark Souls: Remastered Pushed Back to Summer

For millions of masochistic Switch owners, May couldn’t come fast enough, because that’s when Dark Souls: Remastered was supposed to launch, thus making it that much easier to repeatedly die horrible deaths at the hands of horrendous monsters while on the go. Unfortunately, those gamers will have to wait a little longer to suffer their humiliating defeats.

Publisher Bandai Namco has announced the Switch version of the game has been pushed back to a somewhat nebulous “summer” release window. Nothing was said regarding a specific reason for the delay, however they did state it would result in an improved game.

In addition to the game being delayed, the release of the associated Solaire of Astora Amiibo has also been pushed back to summer. Hopefully we’ll have more specific information soon.

Nintendo Could Be Working on a New Wave Race

Nintendo Could Be Working on a New Wave Race

No game publisher in the industry has a pantheon of franchises quite like Nintendo. On one hand, this is a very good thing: it means that, even on consoles where the company struggled to find third party support, they still had a lot of diversity to fall back on. Unfortunately, it also means that some of the company’s smaller franchises can easily fall be the wayside. Fans of Wave Race, a series that began life on Game Boy before exploding in popularity on N64, certainly know how long the wait between titles can be.

Fortunately, there appears to be a glimmer of hope for Jet Ski fans! In a recent interview, Nintendo’s Shinya Takahashi teased a possible return for the franchise.

“We have been trying to make many games and that may be one of them … I personally love Wave Race!”

Lanota Coming to Nintendo Switch

Lanota Coming to Nintendo Switch

Noxy Games’ and Flyhigh Works’ rhythm game, Lanota, has been announced for the Switch and will be available in June 2018.

The iOS and Android game is set in a fantasy world with a storybook presentation, which you can see more of in the below announcement trailer:

The game launched for mobile back in 2016 to generally positive praise, in particular for its beautifully immersive world and innovative circular field that required tapping, swiping, and sliding depending on what was indicated on the screen. That should translate well to the Switch’s touchscreen and mobility, but it remains to be seen how the game will control when the console is docked.

Minecraft Players on Switch Will Soon Earn Xbox Live Achievements

Minecraft Players on Switch Will Soon Earn Xbox Live Achievements

It was recently confirmed that Minecraft is finally being united across multiple platforms, including the Nintendo Switch.

Microsoft and Mojang have announced that once the Bedrock update goes live for the Switch version of the game, players will be able to earn achievements tied to Xbox Live. Other features, including cross-platform play, will be part of all supported versions.

Sony remains the only holdout on allowing cross-platform play between all console versions of Minecraft, though it’s unclear why they alone continue to remain against it.
