A Case of Distrust finds sales success on Switch

A Case of Distrust is definitely one of the more unique titles to hit the Switch, but as we've seen time and time again, Switch owners are down to try new things. In an interview with Engadget, developer Ben Wander said the consumer reaction to the Switch version of his game surprised him. Without revealing specific sales figures, Wander said the game's release on Switch was something like a second launch day. It's clear an audience was there, and Wander said he's happy with the situation, and the sales figures.

Redout still heading to Switch, development close to wrapping up

You might not believe it, but according to the dev team working on Redout, it's still coming to Switch. This was a title announced before the Switch even came out, but the game still hasn't seen release. In a recent Fragments of Silicon interview, Guiseppe Franchi of 34BigThings reconfirmed that the title is still coming.

“Yes, very much (still in development). … It’s been long overdue and we know it. As I said before, it was challenging to bring this game on Xbox and PlayStation, so I’ll let you know how imagine how challenging it was to bring it on Nintendo Switch. But it’s still coming. We are in the process, we are in a very advanced… We’re very close to it. It’s coming.

The game is going to be published by Nicalis, so as for the release, I suggest you ask them. Not because I don’t want to talk or because I don’t know, but because it’s their job. … they’re doing their job perfectly well. From our end though, we’re wrapping things up.”

R-Type Dobkeratops figma on the way

One of R-Type's most iconic bosses is being turned into a figma. The R-Type Dobkeratops figma has been revealed at Wonder Toy Festival, and it looks every bit the part of its in-game counterpart. This is the perfect time for Dobkeratops' figma to debut, considering R-Type Dimensions EX hits the Switch on Nov. 28th, 2018! No specific date for this figma just yet, but it'll definitely see launch in 2019.

Iron Crypticle coming to the Switch in early 2019

Cryptonia’s princess and the glorious Royal Treasures of Cryptonia have been abducted!
The washed-up kingsguard must leap into action and plunge down into the ancient magical crypts on a rescue mission!


You could summarise IRON CRYPTICLE as structured around the core of Smash TV / Robotron, deepened by an item collection system inspired by Bubble Bobble / Rainbow Islands, all placed in a Ghosts and Goblins / Gauntlet type medieval setting.


If you want to survive past the Guardian Monsters of each floor then you’ll need to upgrade your abilities. Speed, Damage, Fire Rate and Weapon Duration can all be upgraded either from shops or through careful chaining gobbling up food pickups.

Most enemies drop a food item (delicious cheese, slices of cake, lollipops, hotdogs, fruit…) with which you need to juggle chain-collecting, all whilst slashing your way through hordes of ghastly creatures.

Route selection is very important too, with each floor made up of a branching system of rooms. Each room type has their advantages and disadvantages – plus with each play through the rooms all shift about and reform, just to keep you on your toes!

To help you on your quest are a range of weapons, magical scrolls and items to unlock. For close combat emergencies you can rely on your dash move for quick escape, or activate your Atomic Fist to punch a hole in the enemy ranks.

Be sure to visit the cat merchant to see what is on offer. Or try the arcade room to earn extra coins and health. You can play solo or up to 4 player local CO-OP; either way you`ll find the crypts run deep with many secrets to uncover on your adventures in IRON CRYPTICLE.

Iron Crypticle is set to hit the Switch sometime in early 2019. When a more specific release date is shared, we'll bring that to you.

Super Nintendo World construction making progress at Universal Studios Hollywood

It's going to be a slow-and-steady sort of situation when it comes to watching Super Nintendo World being built, but any progress is good progress. The foundation for the attractions has now been laid, and gives us a better idea of how things are going to be laid out. I can't wait until we start to see some of the acting branding and attractions themselves, but it's going to be quite some time until we get a look at that.
