Daily news (September 9, Round 3): Woodsalt / When the Past was Around

Today’s Daily news: Woodsalt announced for the Nintendo Switch, but also…

  • When the Past was Around
  • Chronos: Before the Ashes
  • Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Feat. The Legend of Zelda
  • Genshin Impact
  • Just Dance 2020


Team Woodsalt have announced that their very first game, Woodsalt (a narrative-led JRPG) will be released on the Nintendo eShop, on October 13th. It will cost £19.99.

Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots for the game:

Control Emcy, whose penchant for sleep has steered him clear of an evacuated Earth to wake 1000 years later on Nu-Terra, a sprawling city contained within a bubble. What, where, why and how? You’ll find out as you explore the world around you, develop relationships, and uncover a mystery that spans the entire universe and your very existence.

Stirred awake from his first night on Nu-Terra by a strange spectre, Emcy finds that is only the beginning of his troubles…

Inspired by the golden age of 90s JRPGS, Woodsalt is an adventure that speaks to the chilled-out at heart. Shape Emcy’s path with various dialogue options, meet and befriend the colourful cast of Woodsalt, and most importantly, take your time and go along for the ride – without the heartrate of an FPS streamer suspended in a vat of Four-Loko!

  • A curated Shounen odyssey free from fetch quests or filler, every chapter a full piece of the overarching puzzle and wanderlust of the city.
  • Multiple Endings across main and side quests including secret versions that may involve cat collecting…
  • Come across a dog with a space helmet: what’s not to love!

Woodsalt (Switch – eShop) comes out on October 13th in Europe and North America.
