Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe
A couple of weeks ago, Secret Base announced Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe, a permadeath multiplayer horror beat’em up for the Nintendo Switch. It will be released on February 27th, and will cost $9.99 (with a launch discount). Here’s all you need to know about it:
In Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe, the only thing scarier than being eaten alive is running out of quarters! A permadeath multiplayer horror beat’em up that bestows players with the skills of retro gaming heroes in a fight against a legion of undead monstrosities.
Streets of Red : DDD was designed to be played over and over again, with each run offering up the potential for new content. Six unique playable characters and an ever-growing level selection work to keep the gameplay from getting old and rotten, while the easy to learn but hard to master combat system allows for plenty of depth.
With every kill, you earn cash that can be spent on upgrades, or to revive yourself when you die. You better learn how to make cash fast and spend it smart in Streets of Red : DDD because when you’re dead, your save data dies with you. The chills, thrills, bills, and opportunity to learn new skills here won’t stop until every street runs red with blood! Are you up for the challenge of an anti-lifetime?
Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe (Switch – eShop) comes out on February 27th. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
Death Road to Canada
A couple of weeks ago, UKIYO Publishing, Rocketcat Games and Madgarden announced Death Road to Canada for the Nintendo Switch. Here’s what the game is all about:
UKIYO Publishing, the London-based independent video game publisher in partnership with Rocketcat Games and Madgarden, are proud to announce that their randomly generated, zombie-filled road-trip, Death Road To Canada, is making its way to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Spring. The release includes all major updates from the original PC version. Players will now be able to take the highly esteemed cadaverous journey from Florida to Ontario, soaking up its immaculately gruesome pixel-art take on the undead apocalypse. Facing off against near insurmountable odds, Death Road To Canada tasks players with surviving its brutal, hyper-violent combat with over-the-top, looted weaponry. Scavenging the derelict environment, tough, sometimes hilarious decisions will have to be made along the way, either alone or in its two-player co-op mode.
Tipped off that Canada might just be free from the threat of zombies, the long, winding Death Road is all that stands between the player and their goal. Players will explore iconic sites such as Y’all-Mart and the Muscle! Bomb!! Gym!!!, meeting and recruiting a host of strange and bizarre companions along the way. Unusually for randomly generated roguelikes, Death Road To Canada features a heavy emphasis on narrative, its Interactive Fiction events making or breaking friendships, all the while adding character-driven drama to the blood and guts chaos of combat. A far cry from sunshine state at the end Route 66, Death Road To Canada is a desperate scramble to the promised land of Ontario.
Death Road to Canada (Switch – eShop) will be released this Spring in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!

Claws of Furry
A couple of weeks ago, Terahard announced Claws of Furry for the Nintendo Switch. It’s a rogue-like, co-op action game, releasing this Spring via the Nintendo eShop.
Here’s all you need to know about it:
With fifty levels of catastrophic mayhem, players will punch and scratch their way through enemies to rescue their Master from the evil claws of an unknown boss.

Made up of four distinct environments with unique enemies, the challenge is always evolving. Multiple modes such as Rogue-like and Arena, and unlockable outfits with unique bonuses, will require unstoppable ninja-cat reflexes.
Fear not the rogue-like though; with the Pussycat mode, the game can be played with checkpoints in every level in a classic linear adventure. Players, of course, will still require a keen eye and bags of feline ninja skills in order to survive the journey and free their Master. But they don’t have to take on this challenge alone; a group of up to four people can unleash their collective fury with the ultimate local couch co-op mode!
- Arcade beat’em up action
