Caution: Contains a higher-than-normal amount of bafmadads and silver balls.

Forget the Switch outselling the Wii U in year 1, it'll probably also have more games than it by the time March 3 comes around. Most of the attention is on the fashionbly late Yooka-Laylee, the former Kickstarter record holder which began life on the old and busted before crossing over. Other targets include your choice of two free-to-start pinball titles in Pinball FX3 and Stern Pinball Arcade (Pinball FX has two extra tables for the first week), the Mutant Mudds Collection, or Humble Hearts's loving parody Never Stop Sneakin'.

If you're in for pain, you'll be covered as well with Edmund McMullen's masochistic platformer The End is Nigh, gun-focused roguelike Enter the Gungeon from Devolver and for some unknown reason Romancing Saga 2 from SquareEnix. If you prefer to keep in the retro realm but don't want to put up with Kuwazu, The Last Blade is this week's Arcade Archives release. Lastly, the preload for Style Savvy: Styling Star is live if you want to pick up a Christmas gift for yourself.

Europe has a bit of a slimmer lineup, while Japan adds RIVE: Ultimate Edition, Farming Simulator and some shogi.
