A mega-week of mega-releases that isn't as mega-big as last week.

So for the curious, by the time last week's article was finished there were *33* releases in North America and 31 of them were on Switch. As of initial press time this week, we have 19, and were two well-timed delays from having game releases for 12 straight days dating back to last Monday. The big ones for this week are Mega Man 11 - review for that shortly - and Super Mario Party, for two different ways to deal with 50 stages of hell.

In the download space, we have the Western debut of one of Japan's most, um, unusual series in Taisen Hot Gimmick - or as it's known here, Hot Gimmick Cosplay-jong. There's also some more Picross and WARNING: A KEMCO RPG IS APPROACHING FAST. Hamster hadn't stepped forward with their contribution this week until Wednesday when it was revealed to be the rare platformer Zupapa, but we do have one Archive game scheduled in the surprisingly expensive Heavy Burger from Data East.

Japan's lineup this week includes the big non-tendo release of Assassin's Creed Oh God We Need To Get Out Before Red Dead 2 Eats Our Lunch Odyssey... in two year rental form. Because Japan.
