Yoku’s Island Express

Here’s the latest trailer for Yoku’s Island Express:

Yoku’s Island Express (Switch – eShop) comes out next year in Europe and North America.


This month, the developers of Wargroove are introducing the various types of units found in the game. After the Soldier, last week, it’s time for the Archer unit to get some juicy details. As mentioned previously, they’re the only ground units that can move and attack at a distance in the same turn, while still being able to capture structures.

They can also counter-attack, which is something neither Ballistae and Trebuchets can do. They don’t deal much damage, but thanks to their passive boost, they can deal more damage if they don’t move in the same turn.

Wargroove (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood will be released on Nintendo Switch on December 21st in Europe and North America. If you’re interested in trying out this game (either because you played it on other platforms and would like to see what’s different on Nintendo Switch, or because you’re just curious about it), you will be able to download a demo for it later this week. Keep an eye out on this page to find out when it’s live!


Speaking of demos, there’s another game getting one soon… forma.8! If everything goes well, it should be released before Christmas, but nothing is confirmed just yet. Just like the one for Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, this page will be updated when the demo is live.

Inversus Deluxe

Another success story for the Nintendo Switch! Yesterday, the developers announced via Twitter than in just 10 weeks, the Nintendo Switch version of Inversus has already outsold the one on Steam (which was released more than a year a go). It’s not yet the most popular platform for the game (that’s still the PlayStation 4), but it’s “on trajectory” to be.
