King’s Bounty II
Koch Media have announced that they have signed a co-publishing deal with 1C Entertainment regarding King’s Bounty II. Thanks to that deal, the game will not only be released on the Nintendo eShop, but will also be available at retail.
Here’s the latest trailer for the game, along with some more details and some screenshots:
Offering a fresh take on the acclaimed fantasy series, King’s Bounty 2 expands upon its tactical turn-based battles to offer players a truly immersive RPG experience that adds weight to their every decision, whether leading an army into battle against unliving horrors, or building relations with local townsfolk. Experience a rich world that blends realism and fantasy, filled with compelling stories, memorable characters and moral choices aplenty!
Players take on the role of one of three heroes – each a personality with their own background – and experience a non-linear adventure in an open and vibrant fantasy world. Split into two distinct phases, players traverse the realm from a third-person perspective, picking up quests, exploring the wilderness, and getting to know the people they meet. When conflict arises, however, the perspective shifts to tactical, turn-based combat. Players must then make smart use of their units as they fight to win.
King’s Bounty II (Switch) does not have a release date yet.

The Sinking City
Due to a legal battle with Nacon / Big Ben Interactive, The Sinking City has been taken down off multiple storefront. Frogwares, the developers have shared some details on this rather unfortunate situation on this page.
If you’re thinking of getting the game on Nintendo Switch, you don’t have anything to worry about, as it’s self-published by Frogwares themselves. In other words, there’s no risk of it being delisted from the Nintendo eShop.
Soedesco have announced that Monstrum will be released at retail on September 25th in Europe and North America.
