Turok Nintendo Switch

The Turok games are iconic pieces of the Nintendo 64 library, and they’ll soon get a new lease on life with Nintendo Switch ports. Fans of the originals will no doubt be excited, but this is also a welcome opportunity to introduce these two games to a whole new audience. Turok: Dinosaur Hunter comes out very soon, on March 18, though there’s no date yet for Turok 2: Seeds of Evil.

Lyrica is another game to look out for, as it builds up the Switch’s already impressive selection of rhythm games. Coming from Taiwanese developer RNOVA Studio, it’s a story-driven game inspired by classical Chinese poetry, with note charts build around gorgeous calligraphy.
