Project Mekuru

Remember that mysterious game from the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017, the one with Mii? Well, it turns out it’s a game called Project Mekuru, developed by Over Fence. The title is a pun, as “mekuru” means “to flip” in Japanese, and the goal of this game is precisely to flip things (tiles, to be precise).

Made in Unity, Project Mekuru can be played with up to 4 players, and support Mii. One of the game modes involves flipping tiles on the arena floor to your own colour.

Here’s a couple of pictures:

Project Mekuru (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet, but it has been added to the Upcoming Releases page anyway.

“Importing” digital games

Here’s a pretty neat detail about the Nintendo eShop: if you buy a game from another region, it will show up as bought if you check out the Nintendo eShop from another region (therefore preventing you from buying it twice). Naturally, this only applies to games where the executable is the same in all regions, such as simultaneous releases.

We can assume that games launching with only a specific language (such as Japanese for Japanese games) will not benefit from this “feature”.

Thanks Cheesemeister for the heads up!
