Today’s Nintendo eShop news: latest update and trailer for Shakedown Hawaii, but also…
- Bonds of the Skies
- Summer in Mara
Yesterday, Vblank Entertainment has announced that Shakedown Hawaii has now entered its final beta, which will be used exclusively to get feedback (missions, difficulty spikes, etc.). Unfortunately, that means it’s definitely going to miss its Q1 release window, though at the very least, it doesn’t look like this final delay will push back the release date that much further.
Click here to learn more about the beta, as well as the various changes that were recently made to the game!
Here’s the latest trailer and screenshots:
Shakedown Hawaii (Switch, 3DS – eShop) comes out later this year in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
Crazy Monkey Studios have announced Warparty for the Nintendo Switch: it’s a prehistoric real-time strategy game, releasing on March 28th in Europe and North America.
Here’s some details and some screenshots:
Taking its cues from classic RTS games, Warparty shakes things up by loading the battle maps with fierce dinosaurs alongside mythical creatures in need of some tough discipline. Play as one of three factions – the Wildlanders, Necromas, or Vithara – each with their own units, buildings, playstyles and unique talents for total battlefield supremacy. The finely tuned game modes in Warparty include Survival, AI Skirmish and Custom Online Multiplayer, offering unforgettable RTS paleo-parties for up to six friends.
Available on March 28th, the fresh new Story Campaign will come loaded with tempting single-player treats. The mode’s unique maps, factions, and missions, are set against a backdrop of cinematic cutscenes that tell a gripping primordial tale of ancient alliances and bloodshed.
Ranked matches are played on the dedicated Warparty servers to guarantee a fair fight, and online leaderboards let everyone share in the trouncings and triumphs. So pull your loincloth tight, sharpen your axe, and mount your trusty dino-steed for the fight of your life.
