It’s a good thing the Switch exists, because if it wasn’t for Nintendo there’d be bugger all out this week.
Unless you’re a Madden fan, there’s not much to look forward to unless you like your games portable (or on the couch with a Pro controller). Mutant Year Zero is probably the biggest name out of the Switch ports, although the very enjoyable Power Rangers RPG (aka Chroma Squad, which actually about your own Power Rangers troupe) goes live on the eShop this week too.
For the weebs among us, you’ll be pleased to know that an Omega Labyrinth game is available locally. Omega Labyrinth Life drops on the Switch this week for a staggering $90. I’m kind of surprised it’s being released here at all, given the Classification Board’s previous views on Omega Labyrinth titles. But this one got an MA15+ rating, so there you go.
Here’s the lineup for the week:
- Mutant Year Zero (Switch, PS4, XBO)
- Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation (PS4)
- Burger Chef Tycoon (Switch)
- Sudoku Relax 2 (Switch)
- Madden 20 (PS4, XBO)
- London: Detective Mysteria (PC)
- Paranoia: Deliver Me (PC)
- Raiders of the North Sea (PC)
- Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Prophecy (PC)
- Crystal Crisis (PC)
- Mighty Gunvolt Burst (PC)
- The Church in the Darkness (PC, Switch)
- Hamsterdam (PC, Switch)
- Trine 3 (Switch)
- Forager (Switch)
- Catch A Duck (Switch)
- The Tower of Beatrice (Switch)
- Chroma Squad (Switch)
- Illusion of L’Phalcia (Switch)
- Solo: Islands of the Heart (Switch)
- Standby (Switch)
- Omega Labyrinth Life (Switch)
- Pandemic (Switch)
- Dungeon Warfare (Switch)
- Shinobi Spirits S: Legend of Heroes (Switch)
Right then, onto the trailers. We’ll begin proceedings with gameplay of Chroma Squad, which is well worth checking out, and Burger Chef Tycoon, a much milder, more chill version of the excellent Cook, Serve, Delicious! games. There’s also some footage of the new franchise career mode from Madden 20, which has come on in leaps and bounds much like the FIFA solo campaign.
Bit of a quiet week, then. Mutant Year Zero is great if you want an XCOM-like experience on the Switch — although there’s still so much Fire Emblem to play.
