Co-op Platformer Degrees of Separation Launches Valentine’s Day On Nintendo Switch!

November 15, 2018 — Walnut Creek, CA – Triple-I publisher Modus Games and developer Moondrop are excited to announce 2D puzzle platformer Degrees of Separation arrives on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Steam and Xbox One on February 14, 2019. In addition to offering an experience that’s perfect for solo and co-op adventurers, Degrees of Separation also boasts a narrative crafted by industry veteran and games writer Chris Avellone, known for his past work on Planescape: Torment, Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance, and Neverwinter Nights 2.

Featuring dual protagonists named Ember and Rime, each with the power to manipulate heat or cold, players must learn to master their respective temperatures as these two unlikely individuals grow ever closer. Tackling themes of closeness and separation, explore a gorgeously realized non-linear world that encourages players to experiment and interact with the environment around them, making use of Ember and Rime’s polar opposite skill-sets, all while seeking a common goal.

While Ember may cause a nearby river to melt, Rime can freeze it over just as easily. Leveraging their unique talents and bringing together two opposing forces rests at the center of this atmospheric puzzle adventure that weaves together gameplay, narrative, and character development for a powerful emotional experience.

Degrees of Separation arrives on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Steam and Xbox One on February 14, 2019 for $19.99 USD.

Johnny Turbo’s Arcade: Night Slashers Is Now Available On Nintendo Switch!

LOS ANGELES, California, November 8, 2018 — Developed by Data East, Flying Tiger’s Johnny Turbo’s Arcade presents Night Slashers.

Originally released as an arcade game in 1993, Night Slashers is a horror-themed side-scrolling beat ‘em up with fighting game action. This is the first time Night Slashers has ever been released on a home console.

The world is overrun by monsters, werewolves and zombies. Humanity has little hope of surviving the creatures of the night. Battle the undead, vampires, mummies and even the Grim Reaper himself in order to save earth from becoming a Kingdom for the Dead.

There are three heroes to choose from. Jake is America’s most fearsome monster hunter. He uses the power of lightning and has cybernetic arms that are perfect for punching werewolves. Christopher is Europe’s best vampire hunter. Wielding the power of water, he blends both Eastern and Western fighting techniques. Last, but definitely not least, is Hong Hua, Asia’s most revered martial artist. The most agile of the three, she uses the power of fire to fight any monsters that come her way.

Features:

  • Night Slashers brings the real arcade feel to Nintendo Switch™!
  • Play with friends and battle hordes of monsters, mutants and zombies together with three-player local co-op.
  • Play funny bonus games such as Whack-a-Zombie and Undead Bowling.

Townsmen out now on Nintendo Switch!

Giebelstadt, Germany, November 9th: Hear ye, hear ye! Important news for all of you who own a Nintendo Switch! Townsmen is out now, so all budding architects and town-planners can begin designing the medieval metropolis of their dreams. Whether it’s from the comfort of your own home or out and about, Townsmen is the must-have city-builder on Nintendo Switch.

Townsmen (Switch) is based on the long-lasting Townsmen series and comes with a carriage-load of content: players can pick between 26 different scenarios – such as protecting a city under siege from bandits or making sure the King’s birthday party is a huge success – or play one of 24 sandbox maps and build a thrilling town from scratch. It’s up to you as a wise ruler and careful planner to fulfill the needs of your beloved Townies, who follow individual daily routines.

In Townsmen Switch players can research up to 75 different technologies, 45 production buildings and 129 other structures, all of which need to be considered if you want to succeed: Townies appreciate short commutes to work and love to enjoy food or relax in nearby parks when off the clock. But with so many different elements to consider, including the elements themselves (seasons and weather strongly impact planning – Townies consume way more water during summer, for instance), crafting the perfect home won’t be simple.

Townsmen is available now for Nintendo Switch with an SRP of 19,99 € / 19,99 $. The game is developed and published by HandyGames.

Word Sudoku Launching Nov 22nd on Nintendo Switch; Demo Now Available To Download!

Staffordshire, UK – Lightwood Games is delighted to announce that Word Sudoku by POWGI is coming to Nintendo Switch, with a free playable demo now available on the Nintendo eShop.

Word Sudoku by POWGI is a word-based twist on the classic logic puzzle game.

The core gameplay will be familiar to sudoku fans, but instead of using the digits 1 to 9, Word Sudoku is solved by placing nine different letters so that no row, column or grid section contains the same letter twice.

When completed, each puzzle will reveal a different nine-letter word, spelled across one row or column of the grid. This can act as an additional hint, if needed.

Players can also switch the puzzle into “number mode” if they prefer.

Touch screen controls are supported in Handheld Mode, but the game can also be played in Tabletop Mode or TV Mode using a controller.

The game contains 240 puzzles in various difficulties and is priced at $7.99 / GBP £6.99 / €7.99. Pre-orders are now open.
