Today, 10tons revealed their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Dysmantle, an open world action RPG releasing later this year in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer and some details:

DYSMANTLE is set on an extraordinary dystopian island where time seems to have stopped somewhere between 70s and 90s after a grim calamity has taken place. The story starts as the protagonist ascends from his underground shelter and finds himself all alone and left behind on the island. He needs to unravel the mysteries and find the means to escape the wretched place.

Over 99% of the objects in the game can be dismantled for materials. Materials can be used to craft permanent tools, weapons, headgear, outfits, and trinkets. The player will also explore, fight, survive, level up, gather, craft, hunt, solve puzzles, build outposts, farm, fish, cook, and enjoy living in the bittersweet post-apocalyptic world.

Finally, here’s a couple of video clips:

Dead End Job

Headup Games has revealed another game for the Nintendo Switch: Dead End Job (developed by Ant Workshop), releasing in Q2 2019.

Here’s a trailer, plenty of details, and some screenshots:

After an unfortunate accident (WORK-UNRELATED!), Ghoul-B-Gone Ltd. is looking for a temporary assistant to help out our Chief Exterminator Officer Hector Plasm in his ghost-extermination duties. Promotion prospects come regularly, making this anything but a Dead End Job!

Applicant requirements:

– Nothing to lose
– Fearless in regards to potential ghost encounters
– Expect very flexible working hours
– Reckless in terms of toxic and sticky surroundings
– Fire-resistance is optional, but not a must
– Weapons and house cleaning expertise recommended
– Opportunity to earn big money! (For your boss.)
Be the best at putting pests to rest!

Dead End Job sends you into a madcap, Ren & Stimpy-esque world to bust up ghosts. It’s a procedurally generated, couch co-op, twin-stick shooter that straps a vacuum pack to your back, and puts a plasma blaster in your hand. For you, it’s just another day in the office.

Familiar Haunts
You take on the role of Hector Plasm, a worker at Ghoul-B-Gone – ‘the Number One experts in paranormal pest control’ – as you’re tasked with heading to haunted offices, restaurants, and other everyday buildings before freeing them of unwanted guests. One minute you’re sucking up specters, the next you’re sucking up to your bosses, chasing that promotion. 
Have you got what it takes to be the best at putting pests to rest?

Don’t Suck… Well, Actually Do
Exercise that fighting spirit, since every specter you snag and every resident you rescue is added to your client’s bill at the end of the job. Haunted by the ghost of your mentor, quite literally, you must learn the ropes and to save her soul before she’s forced to spend eternity as a spook (voted “Least Preferred Fate” in Ghost Hunter Monthly).

Kindred Spirits
Play alone or bust ghosts with a buddy in drop in / drop out co-op that works seamlessly within the main adventure. Plus you can play to an audience with Twitch and Mixer interactivity that allows viewers to help or hinder your assault on the afterlife.

Ghost Writer
Do you love 90’s cartoons? Yeah, so do we, and we grew up on their stretchy squishy gross-out laughs. Our love for them spills over into the game like so much ectoplasm. See every nose hair in wacky, vibrant art that brings everyday items to life as screwball spooks to suck up. To top it off, the entire adventure is backed by music from the award-winning Will Morton (Grand Theft Auto series).

Defense Grid 2

Hidden Path Entertainment has announced the upcoming release of Defense Grid 2 on Nintendo Switch. It will be available from February 7th in North America, with pre-orders going live on January 25th on the Nintendo eShop (with a 10% off discount).

The Nintendo Sitch version will feature “comprehensive leaderboards” created just for this version, and the developers worked hard to make sure the game ran well on the platform. It will also include all the contents from the base game, alongside the DG2: Aftermath expansion (previously avaiable exclusively in the VR editions). The game will be playable in Single Player, as well as in co-op (using Joy-Cons or the Pro Controller). Unfortunately, it will be local only!

Here’s a trailer, some details, and a couple of screenshots:

– 15 hours of story play (including the new storyline previously only available in VR)
– 100+ hours of challenge play
– Dozens of maps (including the five new levels from Aftermath)
– Your favorite voice actors: Jennifer Hale, Alan Tudyk, Jim Ward, Dave B. Mitchell, Ellen Dubin, and Kari Wahlgren
– Localized fully for German, French, and Spanish
