Bookbound Brigade

Intragames have announced a new game for the Nintendo Switch: Bookbound Brigade, a Metroidvania developed by Digital Tales. It will be released later this year worldwide.

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

Bookbound Brigade is about beating the hell out of historical and literary characters you studied in school by leading a dream team of real and fictional heroes through a 2D side-scrolling platform-adventure. It will take the likes of Dracula, King Arthur, Queen Victoria, Nikola Tesla, Cassandra, Dorothy Gale, Sun Wukong the Monkey King and Robin Hood to assemble and avenge a world plunged into chaos following the theft of the ‘Book of Books’, a volume encompassing every single work of fiction and non-fiction ever written.

  • Explore, fight, backtrack, grow your skills and tackle challenging quests and puzzles, as in any Metroidvania game worthy of its name, but get ready for a twist…
  • There is no single hero in Bookbound Brigade: you play as a party of unique characters, each with their own traits and skills, who move in formation and fight as one.
  • All the characters, both playing and non-playing, are drawn from the pages of history and literature, so expect to meet some familiar and less familiar faces!
  • The distinctive hand-drawn visuals, inspired by book illustration from all time, stray far from the pixel art dominating the Metroidvania genre.

YouTube (Nintendo 3DS)

Nintendo have announced that the YouTube app on Nintendo 3DS will be discontinued on September 3rd. It will no longer be useable, and naturally, it will no longer be available for download from the Nintendo eShop. Moving forward, if you want to watch YouTube videos on a Nintendo console, you will have to use either the Nintendo Switch or the Wii U.
