Today’s Nintendo eShop news: Snakeybus announced for the Nintendo Switch, but also…
Digerati have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Snakeybus, a vehicular-based arcade game developed by Stovetop Studios. It will be released on April 2nd in Europe and North America.
Here’s a trailer, some details, and the list of key features:
Developed by Seattle-based Stovetop Studios, Snakeybus offers a unique twist on the classic ‘thing getting longer’ genre popularised by Nokia phones at the end of the last millenium. By rethinking the concept in smart and clever ways, and asking ‘what if Snake, but with bus?’, Stovetop has devised Snakeybus. Snakeybus is an absurd arcade-driving game and frantic score-chasing experience where the biggest danger is yourself! Wind through city streets, pick up as many passengers as you can and deliver them to their destination to increase your score AND the length of your bus! Boost, jump, and steer around an obstacle course of your own making! Test your serpentine skills with various maps, modes, and bus types! All aboard the Snakeybus!
- Weave around, over, and under your ever-lengthening bus for high scores
- Collect passengers across 11 maps, including Paris, Miami, non-Euclidean space, and a dorm room
- Unlock exciting new buses to drive, such as School, Party, and Double Decker
- Play Classic mode, or test your skills in Time Race, Endless, and Aerial modes
- Be the best Snakeybus driver – challenge friends on leaderboards
Snakeybus (Switch – eShop) comes out on April 2nd in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!

Here’s the trailer and some details for the latest Content Update for Dauntless, Scorched Earth, now available:
The “Scorched Earth” content update marks the debut of Blaze Escalation, a fiery new challenge that pits Slayers against a series of Behemoth encounters with unique gameplay modifiers and randomized Behemoth combinations. Slayers will face enhanced Flameborne Behemoths imbued with blaze aether on their way towards a battle against the Escalation’s “boss” Behemoth. Slayers who find success on their way to the end of an Escalation hunt will face off against the Torgadoro, Dauntless’ biggest Behemoth yet. The Torgadoro is the first Behemoth to use the environment to its full advantage, scaling the walls of a volcanic arena to unleash devastating attacks from above, and rain down fiery projectiles on its foes. Defeating a Torgadoro grants Slayers schematics for powerful legendary weapons. Each legendary Torgadoro weapon includes two prismatic cell slots, the ability to “bond” the weapon to another blaze weapon, and a special ability that calls forth Torgadoro’s rage. Blaze Escalation can be accessed in the Map menu. For Slayers who wish to finish their Malkarion armour and legendary weapons, Shock Escalation remains available as well.
The Searing Talons Hunt Pass launches as part of the “Scorched Earth” update today, allowing Slayers to earn up to 50 levels of rewards, including cosmetics, bounty tokens, consumables, and more, themed around the Blaze Hawk faction of Slayers. The set culminates in a dazzling set of Blaze Hawk armour skins. In addition to adding the ability to earn Hunt Pass experience through both bounties and normal hunt activities, Searing Talons also debuts the new Hunt Pass Prestige system. For the first time, Slayers who complete all 50 levels will earn Vault coins—a new currency created especially for Prestige players. Vault coins can be used to purchase rare items from previous Hunt Passes, including cosmetic armour sets, emotes, weapon skins, and more.
“Scorched Earth” introduces a number of quality of life improvements and other features, including a new and improved move list that provides detailed information about combos, and improved daily login bonuses that expand the list of potential items Slayers can earn.
