eShop news (June 15, Round 5): Space Crew / Blue Fire
Today’s Nintendo eShop news: details and screenshots for Space Crew, but also…
- Blue Fire
- Remothered: Broken Porcelain
- Skater XL
Curve Digital have shared some details and some screenshots for Space Crew:
In this brand new entry, players are tasked with defending Earth against a mysterious new alien menace by carefully recruiting crew members, designing their own spaceship and venturing across the cosmos.
Space Crew will feature the same compelling gameplay loop as its beloved predecessor with players controlling the actions of their crew moment-to-moment in the minutiae of navigation, scanning and combat. The new space setting allows much more player freedom and campaign unpredictability with much greater mission variety and deeper strategic gameplay.
Players will have to be more alert than ever when venturing through space and are challenged to protect their vulnerable crew from alien boardings, getting sucked out into space, running out of oxygen, system failures, ship fires and whatever else the campaign AI can throw at them from mission to mission. It is these moments of seeing your crew triumph over adversity time and time again, albeit with a few casualties along the way, which made the original Bomber Crew such a runaway hit and Runner Duck is aiming for similarly thrilling emergent storytelling in the sequel.
Space Crew (Switch – eShop) comes out in September in Europe and North America.

Deep Silver have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: ProtoCorgi, a “bark ’em up” developed by Kemono Games. It will be released this November in Europe and North America.
Here’s a trailer and some details:
Meet Bullet, the C3 class (Cute Cyber Corgi) cybernetic pup who may be adorable on the outside, but being fluffy is far from being his only purpose. He is a military experiment and armed to the teeth. He will need all his barking power to save his creator, the brilliant scientist Nixie, from the grasp of evil alien forces.
ProtoCorgi is a retro style pixel art, horizontal shoot-em-up with arcade gameplay that gives the player control over Bullet, a C3 class (Cute Cyber Corgi) cybernetic pup. (Cosmic Combat Corgi is also acceptable.) When Bullet discovers that Nixie was kidnapped by evil alien forces seeking galactic domination, the cute yet deadly Corgi goes on a quest to save her. The adventure ahead fills your screen with fully animated retro pixel art and lets you experience Bullet’s fights with precise controls, solid gameplay and engaging story. Shoot, dodge and BARK your way through in this adorable bark-em-up launching later this year.
