Bake ‘n Switch Cooks Up Something Special on Nintendo Switch in Summer 2020!

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Developer, Streamline Games have revealed it will be launching its party brawler, Bake ‘n Switch, on Nintendo Switch in Summer 2020.

Currently available on Wishlist on Steam for PC only, Streamline is pleased to publicly share its plans to release Bake ‘n Switch as the first console game to come out of the independent studio. It was featured as part of the hotly anticipated Nintendo Indie World Showcase, which streamed live on Tuesday 10 December, 10:00 am PST alongside 15 other games. The developer and its publisher, Streamline Media Group, are extremely proud of the reception Bake ‘n Switch has received to date.

“It’s an exciting time for Streamline as the momentum toward the Bake ‘n Switch launch keeps building. The game and the team have been recognized at an international level, winning awards and growing an eager fanbase, so to be selected as part of Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase is another great honor and achievement for the company,” said Alexander L. Fernandez, CEO, Streamline Media Group.

Bake ‘n Switch is a cute and cuddly couch co-op for up to four players with adorable dough creatures bobbing and dancing (yes, dancing!) their way around the worlds they inhabit. But don’t be fooled by its appearance, as this in your face action game offers increasingly challenging levels, baddies and bosses that will make any Baker feel the heat!

Players can team up to punch, merge, and bake as many dough creatures as possible before time runs out, or they can battle it out in PVP mode. Either way, this party game brings folks together, so Bake ‘n Switch goes with Nintendo Switch like butter on bread.

“We always saw the Nintendo Switch system as a go-to platform for our game. The console can handle the high-quality visuals, fun gameplay, and wholly support players’ experience. As a party game at heart, Bake ‘n Switch brings friendly collaboration with a competitive edge,” said Reza Farahmandnia, Sr. Production Manager, Streamline Games. “We have a lot more to bring to the table, and look forward to sharing more in the lead up to Summer when we release the buns!”

Streamline will be showcasing Bake ‘n Switch at consumer events in 2020, looking to get player feedback before release.

Conan Chop Chop Arrives Feb 25th on Nintendo Switch!

OSLO, Norway – Dec 18th, 2019 – Australian developer Mighty Kingdom and Norwegian publisher Funcom are proud to announce February 25th, 2020 as the release date of the upcoming action-adventure game Conan Chop Chop.

“We have had so much fun developing this game, that I actually have mixed feelings about the end being nigh,” admits Mighty Kingdom CEO Philip Mayes. “An action-adventure rogue-lite party-game. Featuring Conan. I mean, what more can you ask for?”

Mighty Kingdom have had a busy year, travelling from Adelaide in South Australia to LA, Cologne and Melbourne to show off Conan Chop Chop, in between development. In October they were named Studio of the Year at Australian Game Developer Awards. “It’s been hard work, but really enjoyable. Some of my favorite moments were in LA and Cologne, where we got to see how much people enjoyed playing Chop Chop. And now that we have polished the game further, I am really looking forward to seeing the reception it will have at launch,” says Philip Mayes.

Conan Chop Chop was cheekily announced an April 1 st, 2019, and therefore at first perceived as an April Fool’s Day joke, but with gamers and pundits alike stating “I wish this were real”. When it was re-announced during E3, it received rave previews. A journalist from Hollywood Reporter noted “The most fun I saw anybody having was with the game Conan Chop Chop”, calling it “a top-notch party game”. Philip Mayes agrees. “It’s the perfect single-player game. But even better with friends.”

Conan Chop Chop will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on February 25th.

Tag-Team Racer Gensou Skydrift Zips onto Nintendo Switch Today!

TOKYO – Dec. 12, 2019 – Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) publishing label UNTIES and the team at illuCalab, including a former Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8DX developer, drop the spell-slinging tag-team racer Gensou SkyDrift onto Nintendo Switch and Steam for Windows PC today. A PlayStation 4 version will race to the finish line in Q1 2020.

Choose two of 20 characters, each with her own drive handling stats and power ups, to ride on each other’s backs as driver and vehicle. Swap between them on the fly to glide through the twists and turns of the tracks and wield the right spell at the perfect moment to lap the competition.

Each character’s exclusive deck of spell cards is packed with abilities based on her traditional Touhou Project traits. Zip through hoops on the track to boost speed and gain mana. Drawing spell cards at full mana pulls more powerful spells capable of slowing down opponents’ speed, shooting around corners to hit dodging rivals, or jumping into the air on the back of the wind to avoid obstacles.

Navigate more than 15 tracks, each featuring a stunning view of Gensokyo, including paths filled with cherry blossom trees and a nighttime course with beautiful views of the realm’s skyline. Be the first to cross the finish line against computer-controlled opponents in Story or Time Attack modes, or face up to seven other teams online or locally in Versus mode.

“GENSOU Skydrift brings rare depth to the genre because players can take advantage of the huge range of possible character pairings,” said John Davis, G&R Representative, UNTIES. “With dozens of combos, there’s a playstyle for everyone from casual to hardcore, and the best players will hone down favorite combos for each and every track.”

GENSOU Skydrift is a fan-made entry in the Guiness World Record holding Touhou project, available today on Steam for Windows PC and Nintendo Switch for the regular price of $23.99 USD/€ 21.99. A 20% launch discount will be available across all Nintendo eShop regions until Dec. 31; Steam’s sale runs through Dec. 19. It supports English, Japanese, and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional).

Classic Shmup Jamestown+ Launches on Nintendo Switch Today!

PHILADELPHIA — Dec. 12, 2019 — Jamestown+, the beloved top-down four-player retro shooter set on British Colonial Mars from Final Form Games, lands on Nintendo Switch™ and PC via Steam and the Humble Store today, with a free update to the PlayStation®4 version arriving at a later date.

Return to Jamestown, the absolutely historically-accurate adaptation of that time when Britain colonized Mars. Bask in two new history lessons levels set on Mars’ picturesque, pixelated moons. Puncture the Martian hordes with four new ships and their 36 unique weapon configurations. This is the best version of Final Form’s classic yet, with a wide variety of improvements ranging from gorgeous new background and enemy art to completely remastered surround sound music and effects.

Join the legendary Sir Walter Raleigh on his quest for absolution as he journeys to the colonies on Mars. Discover forgotten truths hidden from the annals of history, including the disappearance of Roanoke. Take the fight to a power-crazed Conquistador before he can harvest Mars’ terrible secrets for his own destructive devices. Do this all from atop a variety of Conveyances, rocket-sleds capable of both fight and flight.

And how better to brush up the days of yore than with a flight crew? Up to four players can weave through an onslaught of beautiful bullets thanks to local co-op built to accommodate varying skill levels. Learn the three buttons — Fire, Special Attack, and Vaunt, a shield that absorbs attacks and amplifies score — and become unstoppable. Coordinate Special Attacks by choosing complimentary Conveyances. Defend the colonies with screen-filling energy beams, swarms of missiles, and even swords.

“Working on Jamestown+ has been a long and wonderful journey,” said Tim Ambrogi, co-founder of Final Form Games. “It really represents Jamestown’s final form: a complete experience that’s accessible to both veterans and first-timers alike.”

Jamestown+ is available on Nintendo Switch via the eShop and PC via Steam and the Humble Store today at a 17% launch discount, taking it from $17.99 to just under $15. Those who own the original Jamestown on Humble or Steam can purchase Jamestown+ for a mere $5 for one week after its release. The PlayStation 4 version will receive the same updates available on the Switch and PC versions at a later date.

Hip-hop RPG Orangeblood Hits the Switch in Q2 2020!

TOKYO – Jan. 14, 2019 – Orangeblood, a JRPG inspired by 90s hip-hop, will take over PC on Jan. 14, 2019. Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One releases will roll up on 20-inch rims in Q2 2020.

Publisher PLAYISM and developer Grayfax Software invite gangstas to an alternate history of late 20th century Japan where criminal syndicates rule the man-made island of New Koza. Guide Vanilla, a prisoner of a gang war offered her freedom in exchange for completing a top-secret mission shrouded in mystery. Vanilla will build a crew of tenacious-yet-cute companions to help earn her liberty, and mayhem as well as sweet loot drops ensue.

Loot the best randomly generated guns and armor-boosting kicks a criminal can find, including legendary equipment featuring one-of-a-kind abilities. Take the “pray” out of “spray,” reloading tactically to keep your defenses up and using special abilities to mow down foes. New Koza is full of mobsters, robots, and other threats, but a quick stop at a vending machine will refresh your party before the next gun-blazing battle.

Groove along to the hip-hop soundtrack in and out of combat. Handcrafted character sprites feature a pixelated aesthetic matching the era of the music. Jump into gun-toting action that stays fresh as the random gear system, art style, and soundtrack play off of each other.

“I wanted to make an immersive story with g-funk tunes where the only things that matter are your guns, sweet shoes, and the good times you have with them,” said Grayfax, sole developer of Orangeblood. “Randomly generated gear means each encounter can be just as unpredictable as the island of New Koza itself, but the good times will be guaranteed.”

Orangeblood will be available on Steam in Japanese, English and Simplified Chinese for $19.99 USD/€19.99.
