Four Horses sent out the following

 

Following on from the great success of Kid Tripp on the Nintendo Switch and 3DS, it gives us enormous pleasure to be able to announce that Mike Burns, the creator of Kid Tripp, has chosen Four Horses to also bring the sequel, Miles & Kilo, to the Nintendo Switch.

 

Miles & Kilo takes all the great features of Kid Tripp, turns them up to 11 and throws in a dog for good measure!  Play your way: with full control of Miles, you can spend as long as you like carefully picking your way through the levels or turn on Autorun and go for your fastest times, the choice is yours.  Miles & Kilo is bigger and more refined than Kid Tripp and will be crash landing onto the Nintendo Switch eShop later this year.

Four Horses also noted, that the game will give full control of Miles this time. For those who liked the autorunning from the first game though, that will be an option as well.

 

Are you excited? Let us know!

Gekido Kintaro’s Revenge will get a neat addition in its remake on Switch. The game will include multiple updates to the gameplay and presentation,  and best of all, co-op will be added. The ability to play two-player co-op will be in the Story, Survival, and Relic Hunting modes.

This will be only local co-op and not online. The game is coming soon, and will have other additions as well. Will you be getting this?

The Materia Collective sent out the following

 

 Materia Collective is thrilled to release Johto Legends: Music from Pokémon Gold and Silver, a sweeping orchestral re-imagining of the classic handheld soundtracks by arranger Braxton Burks. Funded on Kickstarter with nearly 1,000 backers, Johto Legends fulfills its campaign promises and more, giving Pokémon fans over an hour of new music on CD, vinyl, and digital formats featuring breathtaking performances by some of the game industry’s greatest talent with credits that include Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions and The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses as well as games like DestinyDragon AgeTomb Raider, and Minecraft. Johto Legends will transport listeners back to the Johto region to experience the battles, the characters, and the adventure of Gold and Silver once again. Johto Legends: Music from Pokémon Gold and Silver is licensed and now available:
Johto Legends is a passion project I’ve wanted to fulfill since I was eleven years old,” comments arranger and project organizer Braxton Burks. “Almost every day after school, I’d get on the bus home and turn on my Game Boy Color, loaded with a copy of Pokémon Crystal Version. I spent countless hours headbutting trees in the Ilex Forest, exploring the remains of the Burned Tower, and tracking down the legendaries Entei, Raikou, and Suicune… but it was the game’s soundtrack that really pulled me in with its memorable 8-bit melodies, an eclectic mix of romantic harmonies and Japanese folk music – the perfect backdrop for the Johto region. Sometimes I’d even imagine what the music would sound like if it were orchestrated by one of my idols, John Williams. ‘I wish I could do that,’ I thought. Well, I ended up carrying that dream to adulthood, fueled by my ongoing love affair with the Pokémon games that persists even to this day. I hope listeners will be able to recall their own nostalgic Pokémon journey – the battles, the towns, the routes and caves… and all the adventures in between.”

It is always awesome to see game music like this get a vinyl release. Will you be checking this out?

Nintendo of Canada sent out the following

 

 

 

It’s official: Nintendo Switch has become the fastest-selling home video game system ever in Canada, according to new information provided by NPD. These record-breaking sales are the strongest for the first 10 months of any video game system in Canadian history. The record was previously held by Nintendo’s own Wii system.

“The response that the Nintendo Switch has received from Canadians has been nothing short of spectacular,” said Pierre-Paul Trepanier, Nintendo of Canada’s General Manager and Senior Director. “We’re thrilled to have seen such record-breaking momentum in 2017.”

The game-changing hardware is complemented by a robust and diverse game library. The list will only continue to grow in 2018 with Nintendo-published games like Kirby Star Allies, Mario Tennis Aces, Bayonetta 1&2 and a new game starring Yoshi. Plus, fans can also expect continued support from major publishers, as well as a growing catalogue of quality content from indie developers.

High Horse Entertainment sent out the following

 

 

High Horse Entertainment announced today that the disc-throwing, shot-blocking action of Disc Jam is landing on Nintendo Switch™ next month. Hitting the Nintendo eShop on February 8, players can expect all the frantic multiplayer action they’ve come to enjoy from the game’s PC and PS4 iterations, suped up with Nintendo Switch-specific features and a massive update for all disc jammers.

 

Disc Jam is best played with others, and Nintendo Switch is making it easier than ever to connect with players both locally and online. In addition to cross-platform play between PC and Nintendo Switch, the game also features support for local wireless with up to 3 other nearby Nintendo Switch consoles, making it easy to jump into a match whether you’re in the living room or on the go.

That’s not all the new content coming to Disc Jam. Debuting alongside the Nintendo Switch console launch on all platforms, the game is also getting a massive title update, bringing a whole host of community-requested features to the arena. Joining the game’s roster of characters, South American volleyball player Lannie is set to make her mark on the arena as a perfect balance between power and agility.

The update will also unleash two brand new modes, providing even more ways for competitive and solo players to jam. On the competitive side of things, say hello to Ranked Leagues and Seasons. Do you have what it takes to rise through the ranks of the Universal Federation of Disc and join the Elite? Soon enough, you’ll have your chance to prove it. Then, for players who prefer to fly solo, get ready to experience all the heated action of ranked leagues without the pressures of online play in a gauntlet that will test even the most seasoned Disc Jam veterans. More details on all the goodies coming in February’s update will be landing in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

If this is your first time hearing about Disc Jam, here’s the gist. Players pick from a growing roster of colourful characters, each sporting their own style and abilities, as they compete in a fast-paced action sport that’s like air hockey and tennis combined. Throw, catch and lob the glowing disc at your opponents, defend your end zone, and unleash devastating abilities to gain the upper hand – all in search of multiplayer dominance.

From the introduction of a new character – resident power-house, Kahuna – and new discs, to dedicated servers, Elo-based skill ratings and matchmaking, Disc Jam has been in a constant state of growth since it first launched. It’s also not showing any signs of slowing. With a new platform to play on and a new update on the way, stay tuned for all the action-packed details!

Disc Jam lands on Nintendo Switch on February 8, and is currently available on PC and PS4. For the latest updates, visit High Horse Entertainment’s official website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, Discord, and Reddit.

Are you excited for Disc Jam? Will you be playing it? Let us know!
