eShop Thursday: “The End of E3” Edition

June 15th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

E3 is officially over.

There were some ups and downs: We got two confirmations that the Metroid series isn’t actually dead, Capcom apparently has no plans at the moment to localize Monster Hunter XX and we know there is a Kirby and Yoshi game in the works for the Switch. Overall, there are a lot of things to look forward to on the Switch in the next couple of years.

Except for Monster Hunter XX in the West.

As for games coming out in the immediate future, ARMS launches onto the Switch tomorrow.

Nintendo confirmed the addition of two bits of free ARMS DLC during today’s Treehouse stream: Spectator Mode, which is coming later this month, and a new character Max Brass, who will be added to the game next month.

Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido Brings “Conveyor Belt Sushi Puzzle Action” to 3DS

June 14th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

Nintendo premiered another new game during their Treehouse livestream today. Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido is a puzzle action game from indieszero, the developers behind Electroplankton and NES Remix.

In order to defend their homeland, players will battle invaders by using conveyor belt sushi plates. Using the 3DS touchscreen to collect similar-colored sushi plates, players can build combos and create tall stacks of plates to fling at their opponents. The taller the stack, the more damage they will deal.

Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido is slated for release in 2018.
