Lumo

Yesterday, the developer of Lumo (an isometric platformer) tweeted a picture of his game running on a Nintendo Switch. It looks like we’re getting an announcement pretty soon, but we certainly didn’t wait for it before adding Lumo to our Upcoming Releases page!

Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Here’s a Nintendo Switch trailer for Battle Chasers: Nightwar, which comes out on October 3rd in Europe and North America:

Chicken Wiggle

Here’s the latest gameplay video for Chicken Wiggle on Nintendo 3DS, this time showcasing Level 2-5!

The Escapists 2

Today, a brand new trailer for The Escapists 2 was revealed. It shows the U.S.S. Anomaly: a prison for interstellar criminals. It was designed to solve the problem of Earth’s overcrowed prisons, and it’s a petty high-tech prison. And instead of high-tech, we should have written “futuristic”, as this special prison has robot guards (and dogs), jetpacks, space shuttles, and the warden is an AI.

The U.S.S. Anomaly is meant to be the ultimate test of your escaping prowess… not that it really matters anyway, because in space, on one can hear you escape…

Here’s the latest trailer for The Escapists 2:

The Escapists 2 (Switch – eShop) still doesn’t have a release date.

Phantom Trigger

Today, tinyBuild announced that Phantom Trigger has finally passed lotcheck at Nintendo, and that the release date would be announced pretty soon!

Wargroove

Earlier this week, the developers of Wargroove posted the latest devblog post for the game. This one introduces the Biomes, but doesn’t explain what they are exactly. All we know is that they’re meant to have “gameplay implications”, but that’s something the developers will only talk about at a later date!

In the mean time, here’s a few screenshots showcasing some of those biomes. They actually show the exact same map:

Wargroove (Switch – eShop) doesn’t have a release date yet.

Kid Tripp (Nintendo Switch)

Mighty Gunvolt Burst

Yesterday, Inti Creates released an update for Mighty Gunvolt Burst (click here for more details). Unfortunately, it looks like not everything went as planned. Don’t worry if you cannot download the update: Inti Creates is aware of the issue, and working on a fix as we speak.

Also, if you’re from Europe and had trouble downloading Ekoro, getting Error Code 005-6710, try again now: the issue has seemingly been fixed!
