Nintendo has been building up an impressive library of third party offerings on the Nintendo Switch. Every new announcement reminds us that Nintendo isn’t playing around. Nippon Ichi Software has been a notable supporter of the Switch. This can be seen in their early support with a complete edition port of Disgaea 5 way back in May. Even recently, we covered The Longest 5 Minutes. However NIS America had plenty more in store, which came out during their press event. Now we have word on tons of NIS America Games coming to Switch that will surely keep any fan busy.
NIS America Games Coming to Switch
Penny-Punching Princess is an action RPG beat’em up. You play as a princess who has been tricked into giving up her wealth and needs to reclaim it. Violently. You may also choose to play as Isabella the zombie. It comes out on April 3rd. (March 30th in Europe)
Happy Birthdays is an odd sort of combination of Spore and Viva Pinata. You are given a world to build and control where you may watch life grow and evolve. Readers may remember us briefly introducing this one a while back as Birthdays the Beginning. But starting this Summer, you’ll be able to take this previously PS4 exclusive title on the go with the Nintendo Switch. Trailer below.
Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory is a timer-based JRPG in which you may choose to either rebel against or support a falling kingdom. The game asks you to make frequent choices, which will have consequences. This one releases in the US on May 29th. (June 1st in Europe)
Touhou Gensou Wanderer Reloaded is a roguelike Touhou fangame-made-official. We were only given a vague release date of 2018, but if ridiculously over powered anime girls with silly, somewhat convoluted backstories strike your fancy, maybe this game is worth a look.
SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is a fighting game depicting female fighters from the many series SNK has worked on. This was also part of a recent Nintendo Direct, but the news here is the costume and customization options. Every character has a new outfit for this game and their classic outfit from their own game. This title is also planed for release in Summer 2018.
Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA was actually announced in the recent Mini-Direct. The game is the same as ever, but this version will include much of the costume DLC that was available to the PS4 version. The Switch port wil be released this Summer. New trailer below.
Labryrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk is a new game coming to Switch, PS4, and Steam. You play a witch with command over a team of puppet soldiers. The goal is to explore the massive labyrinth beneath the town of Refrain and learn its secrets. From what we can tell, it will be a dungeon crawler with either a procedurally generated map or a full on roguelike. We’ll find out, eventually, as it comes out in Fall. Trailer below.
That wraps it up for NIS America games coming to Switch, but we’l be sure to update about any further news or reveals coming from NISA in the near future. If you’d like to watch the full NIS America press event, that can be found here.
