The President has been kidnapped by ninjas. At this point, they can keep him.

The start of the second quarter - in the case of a Sunday, April 1 release, literally - sees a fair number of titles popping into the Switch. Penny-Punching Princess punches its way into North American shops this week, while The Adventure Pals and Infernium provide interesting takes on the adventure game genre.

Among the smaller titles are Sin City x Puzzle Quest in Metropolis: Lux Obscura, and a multiple award winner on mobile in Sally's Law. The Archives see Samurai Shodown III and Ninja Kid joined, we think, by Bad Dudes. They sent out a press release for it, so let's see if the third time is the charm.

Europe sees a couple of later releases, while Japan's Archives duo is also joined by another Psikyo/Zerodiv joint, Dragon Blaze.
