NAPS Team have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Iron Wings (ported by Raylight Games). It will be released on June 25th, and will be available for pre-purchase on the Nintendo eShop from June 18th. It will cost $11.99 during the pre-purchase period, and then $14.99. It will offer the following languages: English (voices and text) and Italian, French, Spanish, German, Russian (text-only).
Here’s a trailer and some details:
Player takes on the role of the two pilots, Jack and Amelia, as they attempt to take down Nazi aerial menace across a rich campaign of missions, each with numerous objectives and enemies as well as side objectives. While fast paced action goes you will also have to consider some strategy, assigning your partner primary objectives to shoot down, in order to succeed.
Iron Wings is mainly an arcade game, a flying shooter, where shooting won’t be enough, where weapons or tools mounted on each of the two planes have its role on completing each mission, and you have to deal with the decision of what to do and how to do it. During flight, you will control both pilots and their plane, switching between them anytime you need, assigning orders to the other one.
Each of the two planes carries different extra tools to be used during the mission. Extra tools as Chaffs and Magnetron as radar countermeasures, Photo Camera to report detailed visuals of some objectives, Search Light to discover and focus targets on night scenarios and more to discover. Wise choice of camouflages also influence your visibility to enemies, and consequentially will help you to avoid some damages.
Iron Wings follows the story of two childhood friends who join the war in a special air force squadron. Under the guidance of Colonel David Ruse, their objective is to locate and stop the general Adler ahead of the ‘Ahnenerbe’, a secret team of Nazi archaeologists and scientists. Game starts during a fund raising in NY and rapidly moving into war operations with the Operation Husky (the invasion of Sicily) following the real events in the search for Adler.
Pilots will face aerial and ground missions from NY, rebuilt in deep detail as in the ‘40s, and other USA locations as Black Canyon, to many of the real battlefields along Europe, from Sicily to Naples passing through Poland and Germany.
Iron Wings (Switch – eShop) comes out on June 25th in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!

Here’s some more details for Cthulhu, the latest God to be added to SMITE, and now available via the latest update for the game:
From time immemorial, a cosmic entity has been lying asleep in a city lost to humans. An unfathomable creature whose mere presence would plunge mortals and divinities alike into madness. It is Cthulhu, the Great Dreamer, and today he awakens to quell those newer, feeble Gods that have been ruling in his stead. Today Cthulhu takes over SMITE.
Many fans have long been wishing for Cthulhu to join SMITE, but few had high hopes. The fan fervor reached new heights with the release of a new cinematic trailer, quickly becoming so resounding that it could wake the dead. It certainly woke the Great Dreamer from his not-so-eternal slumber. Cthulhu now enters the Battleground of the Gods as the newest Guardian, joining the newly created pantheon of the Great Old Ones.
As suggested through his myth, Cthulhu’s gameplay revolves around aggression rather than protection. In-game, his brilliantly ominous character model towers above most SMITE Gods, and visual and audio effects impeccably add to the horror by corrupting the actual interface of enemy players — as if intruding into their very mind.
The unnerving aura of Cthulhu is complemented with fitting gameplay mechanics. His attacks drive opponents to insanity and he passively feeds on their madness. Once his victims reach their tipping point, Cthulhu uses an ability that irreversibly shatters their mind, forcing them to flee in fright and granting him permanent benefits. That sense of impending doom extends to his second ability: Cthulhu can conjure a lingering putrid mire that increasingly slows down enemies trapped inside, ultimately rooting them. With his ultimate, Cthulhu reveals his true form, growing to an inconceivable size and gaining access to devastating new abilities with a large area of effect. As long as Cthulhu is transformed, the skies are blackened and the entire battlefield descends into R’lyeh, the nightmare corpse-city from which he escaped.
There is one place where sunken R’lyeh has acquired permanency: Cthulhu’s arrival has altered the map of the Arena, SMITE’s most intense and accessible mode, for the foreseeable future. Players now battle it out in a vibrant underwater environment where tentacled sculptures keep watch and lidless eyes protrude from walls.
Many are wondering whether creating Cthulhu has scared the Titan Forge Games crew out of their wits in the literal sense, as unreasonable sales have been ongoing in SMITE since June 12. Gems are discounted up to 33% off, dozens of chests are available at 50% off, and all voice packs are half-priced. This themed Summer Sales is combined with a variety of in-game events and will rage on until June 21.
Lastly, in-game event Grim Omens gets its final chapter, adding five new skins to the count and reaching its apex in terms of both content and storyline.
You can find more details and some concept-art for Cthulhu on this page, and the full patch notes for the latest update on this one.
