Ratalaika Games has announced their first game for Nintendo Switch, with a port of League of Evil for the system.

They sent out the following tweet

 

There is some bad news though, as the Wii U version of the game has been cancelled completely. With the Wii U fading out and the Switch hitting its stride, it just makes sense.

Will you check this out?

It had been reported earlier by some sites that Axiom Verge would be coming to Switch and would have a physical release. Dan Adelman, who handles the PR for the game, has since stated this is not true.

In fact, Adelman has strongly implied Nintendo rejected the game and it could have been a launch title otherwise.

This is extremely strange. The game has been received well and seen success wherever it was available. This even includes the Wii U where it shot up the sales charts quickly. Why is Nintendo not allowing it on the Switch, especially if it would have been ready for launch day?  This is very unusual.

No GravatarTwo classic Rayman games for the GBA will be coming to the Wii U virtual console. Rayman Advance and Rayman 3 for the GBA will come to the eshop when it updates tomorrow.

 

Classic Rayman action!

In Rayman’s world, nature and people live together in peace. But one day, the evil Mister Dark steals the Great Protoon that provides energy and balance in the world. Betilla tried to stop him, but she wasn’t strong enough. Now strange new creatures appear and capture every Electoon they can find! They definitely need a hero… Rayman to the rescue!

 

Wreak havoc with Rayman

When Globox, Rayman’s best friend, inadvertently swallows a dreadful black Lum, it isn’t the end of the world — but it could be! To prevent a full-scale invasion of malicious, ill-mannered hordes there is only one solution: Rayman must get someone to treat his burdensome pal.

. Will you be buying either of these games?

The Wii U isn’t done yet.

THQ Nordic announced today that Darksiders Warmastered edition is not cancelled on Wii U contrary to the rumors. The game is still coming and now a May 23rd release date. THQ Nordic was a big supporter of the Wii U, after Darksiders II sold well on the eShop, and brought more games to the system. As such, it is good to see that they will support it to the very end.

There aren’t plans for a Switch version that we have been made aware of, but THQ Nordic did say they have 2 big projects in the works for the Switch, so something Darksiders related might still happen.

Brady Duke has done something wonderful.  The 7 year old loved playing Wii, but when he heard a police officer in his hometown was killed when responding to a shooting, he took it upon himself to do something.

He donated his Wii to the police department, both as a thank you to their service and to  help them deal with the loss of their fallen brother. He even loaded it with his favourite games before sending it with a note thanking them for their service to the community in keeping them safe.

The police accepted then accepted the gift, and stated it did indeed help them after Detective Jason Weiland was killed. This is a story showing both the goodness of humanity, and that there are parents who raise their children well. Brady is a good kid and did a wonderful thing. I hope Nintendo takes note of it.

No GravatarVideo game peripheral maker Mad Catz has a bad run financially lately, and it is about to be a lot worse. The company is due to bet removed from trading  on the new York Stock Exchange due to “abnormally low” stock value. Mad catz has said theyt will not appeal the process, which will lead to severe financial hardship for them.

It is not the end however, for Mad Catz a publicly-traded company. After it will be delisted from the NYSE Mad Catz stock will then be traded on the “OTC Pink” U.S. financial market for so-called “over-the-counter” securities.

We knew it was coming thanks to Nintendo of Europe showing it in an image, but now it has been made official. Bloodstained: ROTN will be coming to the Switch, while the Wii U version has been cancelled.

A kickstarter update was put out where Iga stated that “the situation has drastically changed after the release of Nintendo Switch.” While it had made sense to include Wii U during the campaign that is no longer the case due to Nintendo shifting their focus to the Switch,

It continues

 “This change made it difficult to receive the necessary support from the hardware maker, which has led us to drop the Wii U development and shift the development to Nintendo Switch,”

If you supported Bloodstained on Kickstarter , there is an option change their backer survey platform from Wii U to Switch or any other version, or other versions to Switch. I already changed my platform of choice on the backer survey, from PS4 to Switch. The option is there already.

News on Smash Bros might be coming very soon, which should excite a lot of people.

Four new CPSIA certificates appeared on Nintendo’s website, and all seem to be tied to the Smash Bros. amiibo line. Those amiibo start with “AA”, and these ones do as well, indicating a connection.

Bayonetta, Cloud, and Corrin amiibo were already announced, but who is the fourth? This could be a sign that the rumors are in fact true, and Smash Bros on Switch will be coming with a new character. But who could this new character be?  It could be the inklings, but they all have several amiibo already and would not just have one amiibo since there are the boy and girl inkling. Could it be that we actually be seeing more than one new character coming to Smash on the Switch?

Hopefully we do not have much longer to wait for more information.

No GravatarAnother big name indie game is coming to Nintendo Switch, as Bloodstained Ritual of the Night is confirmed for the system. Nintendo of Europe sent out a notice to system users about upc0ming indie games on the system and the game’s logo is featured clearly in it.

The logo in the second to last column below and towards the middle. This is a similar image to the one Nintendo sent out after the Nindies showcase but Bloodstained is a new inclusion.

While it is good news that the game is coming to the Switch, it hasn’t been revealed yet if backers can move platforms.

A Disclaimer: I Backed the game myself, and I would like to move my platform to Nintendo Switch so I hope this is possible.

No GravatarWayForward Technologies sent out the following

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is the latest entry in the esteemed Shantae series by developer WayForward. It’s been two months since launch, and in that time Shantae: Half-Genie-Hero has quickly become a fan favorite, earning universal praise and numerous 9/10 scores and awards from gaming press!

The product was crowd-funded by fans that generously backed multiple tiers of bonus content, including extra levels (which were included in the release version) and extra characters and costumes which are now in development.

The first game stability update (Update 1.01) will arrive on March 6th, and includes:

Bug fixes for all platforms

PSTV support (Playstation Vita version)

Free bonus content: HARD CORE MODE

Hard Core Mode is a new difficulty setting for the main “Shantae” mode in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. This mode is designed to provide an old-school, tough-as-nails challenge to players who miss the days of rage-quitting and throwing controllers. This mode offers a stiff challenge to any player daring to test their mettle. The same studio that developed such unforgiving brutal bliss as Contra 4, Bloodrayne Betrayal, Double Dragon Neon, and the original Shantae has returned to its roots, preparing for you a scalding hot platter of anger food. Trust us, there is no mercy to be found in this new mode, and if you want to survive you’ll need to master the game completely. There is no mercy to be found here – it’s Hard Core!

Warning! This new mode is not for everybody! On the other hand, it IS for everybody since it will be FREE to Backers, and anyone who bought the game.

What to expect in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero HARD CORE MODE:

Pain and suffering!

Harder hitting enemies!

Faster enemy patterns!

Faster scroll speeds!

Remixed enemy locations, and more of ‘em!

New Boss patterns, attacks, and stats!

Healing Items capped at six!

Re-balanced magic items!

Poor Shantae!

 

This is quite the update for the game. Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero is a great game that has received excellent reviews and deserves the praise it gets. Whatever WayForward has planned for the game, can only be a good thing. Hard Core Mode sounds like the perfect mode for gamers who need a challenge in their life.
