Flyhigh Express: all the announcements (Fairune Collection, Lanota, Samurai Defender, Deemo update)

Today, during the latest Flyhigh Express (Nintendo Direct-like presentations), Flyhigh Works made several announcements for the Nintendo Switch, with some new games and updates. Do keep in mind all the announcements were made for Japan specifically, but they’re all pretty much guaranteed to come to Europe and North America (though not necessarily on the same day).

Flyhigh Express – Fairune Collection

First, something for fans of the Fairune series… Fairune Collection! It includes four games:

  • Fairune
  • Fairune 2
  • Fairune Origin
  • Fairune Blast: a brand new game (a shooter)

Fairune Collection (Switch – eShop) will be released in May in Japan.

Flyhigh Express – Lanota

The second title announced during the latest Flyhigh Express is Lanota, a rhythm game originally released on smart devices.

>> Innovative and Dynamic Rhythm Game

Not the rhythm game you used to know: we add unique animation to the plate you’ll be playing on. Dozens of fantastic music tracks and amazing boss-stage features, different charts and challenges; gentle or intense, beginners, advanced players and experts can all have their game!

>> Artistic and Refreshing Picture Book

“I trust that you, the one blessed by the gods of melody, can surely revive the former world order.”
“Tune” the chaotic energy back to harmony, and the world will gradually reveal. Explore places on the map, read a beautifully handcrafted picture book, and collect items on the way as souvenir!

Lanota (Switch – eShop) will be released in June in Japan.

Flyhigh Express – Samurai Defender

The third game announced during the presentation is Samurai Defender, a tower defense game originally released on Nintendo 3DS.

Samurai Defender is a simple defence-type action game set in the Warring States period of Japan.


Defend the castle from approaching enemies! Tap on an enemy soldier to aim at them. Your bowmen will take care of the rest. Enemies will move towards your castle gate, so take aim and stop them from getting too close!


Use the coins you acquire to learn new schemes, then use these to defeat lots of enemies! Defend your castle more easily by levelling up your bowmen and schemes, and enjoy the exhilaration of repelling waves of enemy attacks!

Samurai Defenser (Switch – eShop) will be released in May in Japan.

Flyhigh Express – Mantis Burn Racing

During the presentation, it was announced that Mantis Burn Racing would be released in June in Europe and North America. It’s already available in Europe and North America.

Mantis Burn Racing (Switch – eShop) comes out in June in Japan.

Flyhigh Express – Deemo

Finally, it was announced that Deemo would get a second content update later this month. It will bring the game to Ver. 1.2, and will add 3 new songs packs (14 songs in total)… for free!

As usual, you can find more details about the various Software updates for Deemo on this page!
