News by Matt C.
Every week, there are approximately 243523451 announcements for Switch ports of previously-released games. That’s great news for Switch owners, bad news for our wallets, and awful news for Lindsay, DDNet’s news editor.
It’s a relatively quiet one this week, at least by Switch standards. Still, here’s a quick and dirty list of new Switch port announcements and release dates from this week:
- Arcade Archives: Ninja Kid II (available now)
- 911 Operator (available now)
- Storm in a Teacup (October 25) SkyScrappers (October 29)
- Moonlighter (November 5)
- Battlezone: Gold Edition (November 8)
- YouTubers Life: OMG Edition (November 14)
- Stardust Galaxy Warriors: Stellar Climax (November 29)
- Omensight (November) (PS4 review)
- Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition DX (TBC) (PS4 review)
Omensight is a particular highlight this week. An action RPG from the same folks behind Stories: The Path of Destinies, it sees you playing a ghostly figure trying to prevent the end of the world by repeatedly playing through the final hours before oblivion hits. A single run might take only an hour or two, but new information and abilities gleaned open new paths for following attempts, ultimately leading you to the true ending.
Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition is only confirmed for Japan at this stage (where it launches December 27), but given Koei Tecmo’s track record, a Western release is pretty much a given. We were very impressed with the PlayStation 4 version when it came out some years ago now, and a Nintendo Switch release will add to an already impressive line-up of Musou games for the console.
What are you most looking forward to?
(Important note: we’re not including announcements of Switch as a platform for upcoming games, which would usually get their own news coverage anyway. This is list is purely for announcements of Switch ports / re-releases and the like.)
