Is it hot in here, or is it just this week's main Switch game?

A last-minute GoNNER delay means that this week's big Switch title is familiar to Wii U owners - ergo, it's brand new. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero makes a quick move up, bringing the bouncy platformer action back to the realm of Nintendo systems capable of portable play. Matt reviewed the Wii U version and noted series fan Zach also discussed the game earlier this year.

It's a light week otherwise, other than the 3DS becoming the home for mistakes in North America. In the retro realm, the Switch gets another squad of Shock Troopers while the Wii U gets two more TG-16 games because Konami don't care. Alien Crush and Neutopia II are the new additions.

Europe gets Shantae, Shock Troopers, and a TG-16 game in Blazing Lazers (sic), while also getting a very late air traffic control simulator. Japan finishes their collection of the Tomorrow Corporation's hits with Human Resource Machine.

I'm tempted to double dip here, but for right now, I'll be content with the Wii U version of Half Genie Hero. I still haven't gotten the funds for Disgaea or Fire Emblem or Kirby Planet Robobot because it's been so tight around here latley.

Pretty happy right now that I hadn't got around to playing Shantae yet.
