AO Tennis 2
Bigben Interactive have announced another game for the Nintendo Switch: AO Tennis 2, releasing on January 9th in Europe and North America.
Here’s the debut trailer, some details, and some screenshots for the game:
In AO Tennis 2, tennis fans can take themselves from the outside courts to centre-stage glory in the all-new narrative-driven career mode. For the first time in AO Tennis, success for a young talented player depends as much on external events as great play on the court, which provides deeper immersion into the world of professional tennis.
Players can once again use Big Ant’s celebrated content editor, which was loved by the community in AO Tennis, to customize every element of their game. Furthermore, all content created and shared by users since the first game from 2018 will be available in AO Tennis 2. That’s over 20,000 players and hundreds of courts that can be enjoyed by fans of the sport.
For fans that want to relive the glories of their favorite players, AO Tennis 2 includes a roster of some of the brightest talents across both the ATP and WTA, including Rafael Nadal, Ash Barty, Angélique Kerber and many others. All venues that will be used in the 2020 Australian Open will also be available in the game, so fans can enjoy maximum authenticity as they play along with the Australian summer of tennis.
Big Ant also listened to the community and has implemented many other improvements and new features requested by players. More details about content and the career mode will be shared soon. Developed in close collaboration with the tournament’s organizers, AO Tennis 2 will give fans a more intense experience of the Australia Open, the first of the year’s four Grand Slam events, which begins on 20 January.

Final Form Games have announced that Jamestown+ will be released on December 12th in Europe and North America. It will cost $17.99 at launch, with a 17% off pre-purchase discount in North America. Pre-orders going live on November 28th in that region, and are already live in Europe.
Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots:
Jamestown+ adds to the original classic with new content including two levels on Mars’ moons, starring dangerous alien insectoids and pirate cyber-crabs led by a Human Queen, and four new ships allowing for 36 unique weapon configurations. Countless improvements including new background and enemy artwork, level layout and bullet pattern tweaks, and remastered 5.1 surround sound music and effects make this the definitive version of everyone’s favorite futuristic Alt-History shmup.
Strap in for a rocket-fueled, bewilderingly imaginative adventure across 17th-Century Mars and her moons. Escaping a death sentence on Earth, Sir Walter Raleigh sets a course for Mars, home to his only refuge: Jamestown. Absolve Sir Walter by uncovering the truth behind the disappearance of Roanoke and defending the good peoples of the New World from a Conquistador hellbent on conquering the colonies using an ancient, terrible power.
Soar through the skies aboard one of twelve Conveyances, rocket-sleds with mighty weapons. Tear through oncoming enemies with the simple but reliable Beam ship. Experiment with the Ghost ship, capable of summoning a duplicate ship to maintain support fire while daring pilots get up close and personal with the legendary sword Excalibur. Roll the dice with the Fortune ship, which mimics other ships after death and requires a high degree of adaptability.
Rise up and rebel against the malevolent Conquistador and his army of robots and Martian Warriors by weaving through streams of bullets. Dodge, dip and dive out of the way while fighting to end tyranny on Mars. Every aspect of Jamestown+ — from lush pixel landscapes to enemy design to gameplay mechanics— was hand-designed with an emphasis on presenting something fresh every 10-15 seconds. An emotionally-stirring orchestral score raises the stakes and makes victory all the sweeter.
This adventure need not be faced alone. Join forces with up to three other players of any skill level – Jamestown+ is always better with a friend. Final Form Games specifically focused on making co-op harmonious, so Jamestown+ can be as beginner-friendly or tough-as-nails as a group prefers, but always requires only three buttons. Fire, Special Attack, and Vaunt, a shield capable of emergency protection and score amplification. Ascend the leaderboards and try Judgement difficulty for the pinnacle challenge.
