Here is something interesting. Nintendo filed trademarks for four different controllers in Europe on July 18. Among these were the NES, SNES, and Switch controllers. However, in addition to these, they also filed one for the N64 controller.

What is important to note was that each filing was registered under the same goods and services category. This  is connected to physical products rather than digital, which has led to speculation that an N64 mini is coming. We need to wait and see, but what games would you want on it?

Shakedown Hawaii isn’t finished quite yet but that’s okay because VBlank is bringing their earlier game, Retro City Rampage to the Switch as well.

 

Wednesday July 19th, 2017

SURPRISE! ‘Retro City Rampage DX’ is coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop! This marks the award winning send-up’s 14th(?!) platform to officially launch (I think?!).

Although ‘Shakedown: Hawaii’ is still on the way, it’s not quite finished yet. In the meantime, you can get your Nintendo Switch open world fix, with Retro City Rampage DX!

Like each port before it, it contains little tweaks that polish the game even further (I just can’t help myself!). From little things like the slightly more stylish score display, to improved enemy stomp and swimming controls, to improved lock-on targeting, and mission difficulty tweaks. If you couldn’t beat Death Cam VHS before, you’ll have a leg up on Switch!

As for Shakedown’s release, don’t worry! This surprise port hasn’t lead to any sort of delays with that. If anything, this’ll ensure that once ready, Shakedown gets through Nintendo Switch certification quickly, since our road’s been paved by RCR:DX.

The release date for RCR:DX on Switch is still being locked down. We’re aiming for next week, but if it doesn’t quite make that, hopefully it’ll land the week after.

You can see a trailer for the game here

 

Retro City Rampage is a truly awesome game and if you have not played it yet, you really should. What began as a GTA Demake, ended up becoming a love letter to classic games.

Nicalis sent out the following

 

 

Nicalis, Inc. announced today that physical copies of Tiny Barbarian DX, the company’s upcoming sword-and-sorcery platform game for Nintendo Switch, will feature a dynamic cover illustration by world-renowned artist and character designer Susumu Matsushita. The game is currently scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of 2017 with an MSRP of $29.99.

Mr. Matsushita is best known as the legendary artist who created cover art for hundreds of issues of Famitsu, Japan’s longest-running and most highly respected video game magazine. He is the creator of Necky the Fox, Famitsu’s mascot who appeared as a playable character in Nintendo’s Super Mario Maker via the Mario Costume mechanic.

Tiny Barbarian DX is an action-packed side-scroller that combines platform jumping with sword swinging, expertly blended with retro pixel art and loincloth-stirring chiptunes. After seeing gameplay footage and studying the production art created by StarQuail Games, Mr. Matsushita agreed that his immediately recognizable character rendering style would be perfect for the game’s box art. “Tiny Barbarian DX is a game I’d like to play,” he says, “and it’s been a while since I felt that!”

In addition to magazine covers, Mr. Matsushita’s acclaimed artwork has graced the packaging of many other video games over the past 40 years, including Motor Toon Grand Prix, Maximo and even the original Hudson’s Adventure Island for the NES and TurboGrafx-16. His Tiny Barbarian DX illustration shows the Tiny Barbarian and his counterpart Tiny Barbarina riding on the fearless Wasteland Wildcat while enemies from the game surround them on all sides!

Retail copies of Tiny Barbarian DX will also contain a full-color instruction manual that includes a featurette on the making of the box art. It describes Mr. Matsushita’s creative process, details his preferred art supplies, shows photos of him working at his drawing table and even identifies the 1960s rock instrumental that he listened to while he created the cover!

Developed by StarQuail Games and published by Nicalis, Tiny Barbarian DX is planned for release on Nintendo Switch in the fourth quarter of 2017.

 

This is really cool news, and it shows that Nicalis is really trying to make sure that the physical versions of their games on Nintendo Switch do appeal to people, with various incentives like this.

 

Will you be buying it?

Atooi has been preparing to launch their new game Chicken Wiggle. In preparation for the launch, they have been sending out new bits of information. Check out the latest below.

 

 

The stars of Chicken Wiggle are an improbable duo: a young chicken and his best buddy – a wiggly worm – nestled in his backpack! Together, they team up for adventure to jump, peck, and worm-grapple across a myriad of perplexing platforming levels – full of fun gadgets, tricky hazards, and sneaky foes – determined to rescue their friends from the wicked witch in her sky towers.

But wait, there’s more! Aspiring game designers and playful doodlers alike can spend hours of fun hatching their own levels with the user-friendly level creator included with the game. You can even choose different gameplay rules, art themes, and provide custom hints, tips, and search tags. Once you’re ready, it’s easy to share your creations on-line with other Chicken Wiggle players via the community portal. Now, anyone can be a game designer on the go!

Players seeking more levels to play after completing Chicken Wiggle’s main story mode will find a wealth of unique levels to download, play, and rate for free! Level categories include Atooi official, popular, latest, or simply enter your own search tags or a specific level ID to locate a friend’s level.

The game looks excellent, but what else would you expect from the developers of some excellent 2D platformers like Mutant Mudds?

A Retronauts interview with Fire Pro Wrestling head, Tomoyuki Matsumoto revealed something very interesting.

Retronauts: Would you look at other platforms beyond Steam and PS4 for Fire Pro World? Mobile, Xbox, Switch or something along those lines?

Matsumoto: Speaking for me personally, I would love to put the game on Switch.

Retronauts: It seems like a good fit. The Switch audience seems to be really tuned into sort of the retro style experience that Fire Pro offers.

Could we be seeing another wrestling game on Switch after WWE 2K18? I would agree that the audience is right for this game, but would you buy it?
