News by Matt C.
Every week, there are approximately 35656456 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.

After a mobile release earlier this year, Kemco’s Marenian Tavern Story: Patty and the Hungry God comes to Switch, and it looks like a step up from that publisher’s usual fare. Casting you as the titular Patty on a culinary journey to save her family from poverty, it’s a combination of tavern management sim and strategy RPG, with a side of farming and fishing.
For anyone who likes anime girls mixed in with their tank action game, Girls und Panzer: Dream Tank Match DX is also heading to Switch. This is unlikely to see a Western release (the PS4 version, released earlier this year, never did), but it’s confirmed to be getting an Asia region release with English subtitles.
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.)
