Yesterday, Drastic Games announced that their debut games, Soundfall (a music-driven action adventure game) is coming to the Nintendo Switch, next year. Here’s a trailer and some details about it:

A lively mix of twin-stick shooting and rhythm-based gameplay, Soundfall follows the journey of Melody, a young audiophile who finds herself transported to the world of Symphonia. In search of a way home from this mysterious land where music comes to life, she becomes entangled in a conflict to save the realm from Discord, an unfathomable darkness that threatens everything.


From Symphonia’s lush environments to its outlandish creatures, music drives every aspect of this rhythmic dungeon crawler. Become immersed in a world shaped by sound while delving into forbidden dungeons, exploring fantastic landscapes, and uncovering the hidden power of song.


Soundfall’s levels, enemies, loot, and more are procedurally-generated by and dynamically react to a range of musical elements, changing not only from song to song but measure to measure as tunes build and die away. Battles synchronize to the beat, rewarding players who dash and slash in time to the beat with impressive dance-like combos.


While harmonizing with Soundfall’s refrains, players search for gear and upgrades, like one-of-a-kind weapons and legendary artifacts with audio-driven powers. A diverse roster of playable characters, each with their own distinct playstyle and musical palettes, makes for compelling team-play in online and couch co-op for up to four friends. No matter how players choose to play, there are a wealth of ways to enjoy this action-packed musical experience.

Soundfall (Switch – eShop) comes out next year in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots

Earlier today, Pocket Trap and Modus Games announced that Ninjin: Clash of Carrots (a frenetic, non-stop action game, that can be played in single player or 2 player co-op online) will be released on September 4th on Nintendo Switch. It will cost £11.99.

Here’s a trailer and plenty of details:

Set on a fantasy continent inspired by the Japanese Feudal era, Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is a hilariously fun beat-’em-up with a heaping dose of customization options to make each stage fresh and exciting. Battle through side-scrolling worlds as Ninjin, a charismatic bunny, or as Akai, a ninja fox, to recover your village’s stolen carrots from the claws of the evil Shogun Moe.  


Take down numerous enemies and bosses, collecting carrots along the way which can be spent in the Corgi Store to purchase new equipment, or the Shady Shop for special weapons, tons of masks and other customization items. Choose from a wide variety of equipment, outfitting your character to better defeat your opponents. Then get back out there and kick some tail!


Ninjin: Clash of Carrots also features a special survival mode called “Oni TV Show” – also playable in both single and multiplayer – where you’ll have to fight endless waves of enemies to rack up rare rewards. Challenge a friend to see who can progress the furthest. Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is easy to pick up and play, but only the most skillful ninjas will master the game!

  • Be a Ninja. Play as either Ninjin, the charismatic rabbit, or Akai, the ninja fox, and fight across a feudal Japan to defeat the evil Shogun Moe and retrieve the carrots he’s stolen!
  • Engaging Storyline. Follow a robust Story Mode, meet a diverse cast of characters, and play through multiple stages in a crazy universe.
  • Fast and Furious Combat. Dodge rockets, blast through throngs of incoming enemies and battle bosses in frenzied, fast-paced action!
  • Stylish Visuals. Play through unique environments with anime-inspired HD pixel art graphics.
  • Deep Customisation. Choose from a huge variety of equipment with more than 150 weapons and items, including masks, swords, projectiles, and more.  Equip your character to better defeat rivals.
  • Slash, Smash and Bash with Friends! Join your friends in 2-player local or online co-op as you progress through the game’s story.
  • Oni TV Show. Compete in a “Live TV Show” survival mode, solo or with a friend, to see who can get the furthest without dying, as wave after wave of enemies attack from all angles. Rack up special rewards when you successfully finish each challenging stage!
