Three hundred bucks in retail Switch games and yet I just want to buy LORDS OF THUNDER.
Circumstances have conspired to bring us a new section of the report this week, as the "Switch Preloads" heading will come up now for games that come up with the 4.0 feature but aren't out this week. And the lineup is thick with those kind of games this week with the LA Noire port, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 and of course, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 looking to achieve the sales heights of Skyrim Switch. As far as things releasing, there's a game that inflicts unimagined suffering on four people simulatenously - but enough about Mario Party, let's talk DOOM.
In smaller software, we have Snipperclips getting its Plus on, an online version of the card game UNO that is blissfully male genitalia free when playing online, adventure and role-playing with animals (Octodad: Dadliest Catch and Cat Quest) and Spellspire from eShop regulars 10tons. The retro front is capably represented with Street Hoop from Data East/Hamster, and the big one for fans of Radio Free Nintendo... LORDS OF THUNDER has finally crossed to the Wii U eShop.
While Europe has a similar lineup (moving one of North America's next Tuesday releases up slightly), Japan gets a trio of ports from Koei Tecmo and a couple of rougher ports. Though in the case of Sonic Forces, you can only polish...
