All in all, it's just another brick in the wall.

This article was originally started at about 9pm Eastern time Wednesday, and it looks for all the world that the only things coming out this week are on Switch. The big one for the Western world is the complete edition of Minecraft Story Mode, which you might recall coming out on Wii U about a year ago, or puzzle title Piczle Lines DX. Noted wizard David Lloyd reviewed both titles for us (Minecraft SM, Piczle).

North America and Europe are also picking up forma.8 on Switch this week, also known as "last one out the door" on Wii U (and crossbuy to New 3DS at the same time). John will have that review. The retro love in this week's Arcade Archives release comes by way of Puzzled (aka Joy Joy Kid in Japan). There's demos for Pokken DX (delete and redownload if you need to go after 15 fights) and VOEZ. Aside from a couple of Wii U VC releases for Europe, that's it for the West.

Japan has a couple of games of note this week to go with Piczle and Puzzled. There's a Switch version of a recent One Piece title, and the Ceadeus in the room: Monster Hunter XX for Switch.
