Today’s Nintendo eShop news: latest Content Update for Dauntless (Call of the Void), but also…
- The Last Faith
- Pew Paw
- House Flipper
Phoenix Labs have announced that the latest Content Update for Dauntless, Call of the Void, will be released on June 11th worldwide, and across all platforms.
Here’s a trailer, tons of details about the update, but also some pictures:
“Call of the Void” offers players a new Escalation, Dauntless’ gauntlet-style challenge. Umbral Escalation brings players deep into the heart of a mysterious new island chain where Behemoths have become imbued with the dark umbral element and strengthened with all-new special attacks and combat patterns. Umbral Escalation culminates in a face-off against the new Behemoth Thrax, a serpentine creature that uses umbral portals to disorient Slayers and attack from unexpected angles. Defeating a Thrax grants Slayers schematics for powerful legendary weapons. Each legendary Thrax weapon includes two prismatic cell slots, the ability to “bond” the weapon to another umbral weapon, and a legendary ability that allows Slayers to use Thrax’s portal ability to devastating effect. Umbral Escalation can be accessed from the Hunt screen, alongside the preceding Blaze and Shock Escalations.
For the first time, Dauntless will feature an evolving narrative over the course of the “Call of the Void” season that will have lasting repercussions on the game world. Players will notice changes over the coming weeks and choices they make will directly impact the narrative arc, culminating in a big surprise when Dauntless’ next content update arrives in July.
“Call of the Void” also introduces the Training Grounds, a new way for players to test out every weapon class in a safe place free of live combat. Not only can players join up with their party and easily grab a weapon to test out, the Training Grounds offer a UI that showcases how damage and DPS manifests in-game for the first time. This UI also breaks down damage into stagger, part, wound, and base damage, so players can analyze how each weapon and cell combination performs. New players can pick up a weapon and view a checklist that runs through basic attacks and combos, and as players become more familiar with a weapon type, they can dive deeper with detailed combat tips and view weapon combat animations in the Moves List menu.
The Relics & Ruin Hunt Pass launches as part of the “Call of the Void” update today, allowing Slayers to earn up to 50 levels of rewards, including cosmetics, bounty tokens, consumables, and more, themed around the Void Runners faction of Slayers. The pass culminates in a set of “Umbral Knight” ultra armour skins that embrace the umbral void. As with previous Hunt Passes, players who finish Relics & Ruin can earn Vault coins to use on cosmetic items from Hunt Passes past.
“Call of the Void” introduces a number of quality of life improvements and other features, including a journal that collects info on Behemoths, NPCs and more, full Russian localization, UI improvements and more intuitive dodging.

The Last Faith (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet.
Drageus Games have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Pew Paw, a twin-stick shooter developed by Gnelf. It will be released on June 12th in Europe and North America.
Here’s some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots:
You and your dog are the lone survivors of a zombie apocalypse. Keep it that way! Luckily, you have a third teammate: an old machine gun that you can upgrade for more twin-stick shooting frenzy! You’ll need to search the infested city for items required to craft new parts for your weapon and improve its damage, precision, firing speed, ammo capacity…
The map is randomly generated each time you play, but always full of zombies with different abilities and equipment. Some shoot rockets, some try to intoxicate you, some place nasty mines on the ground…and then there are the final bosses as well, but we’d rather not spoil you that. Accuracy and speed are necessary to be victorious over these damned creatures. But you may be overwhelmed, and that’s why you should also look for new armor suits and upgrade them.
Last but not least, your loyal dog will show you the direction to new ammo and HP boxes ready to pick-up. Friendly tip: do not mess with the gravestones in the cemetery if you don’t want to meet Death (literally).
- Twin-stick top-down shooting action
- 100+ items to craft new weapon parts
- Several zombie types to defeat
- Final bosses, get a reward for their heads!
- Armored suits to find and upgrade
- Randomly generated levels with secrets and bonuses
