A cult JRPG, the return of Digimon… The Nintendo Switch releases of the week


Game News A cult JRPG, the return of Digimon… The Nintendo Switch releases of the week

It’s a new week that begins and the least we can say is that it promises to be quite busy on the Nintendo Switch. Between the arrival of the expected Xenoblade Chronicles 3, the return of Pokémon’s historic competitor and an Animal Crossing bed and breakfast version, there will be something for everyone.

Azure Striker GUNVOLT 3

Six years after the release of Azure Striker GUNVOLT II, ​​the Gunvolt series returns to center stage with a third installment. You will have to be wide awake to take up arms and follow the pace of Azure Striker Gunvolt 3. Like its predecessors, this opus offers “ultra-fast” action through varied 2D tables and, above all, filled with enemies to defeat. If you will of course find Gunvolt, the protagonist of the series, he will not be alone. Kirin, his new star, accompanies him. As you can imagine, it will be possible to switch from one to the other in the middle of combat in order to take advantage of their different abilities offering two different gameplays. Because if Gunvolt is a fan of lightning spells and other superpowers, Kirin masters fencing like no one else. Suffice to say that this new opus promises to be more boosted than ever.

Bear and breakfast

Want a calmer and more relaxing experience? Highlighted during the Summer Game Fest Day of the Devs conference, Bear and breakfast released this week on Nintendo Switch in particular. As you may have guessed from its name, this independent title offers you to manage a gîte, all in the shoes of a bear. The latter is called Hank and lives a quiet life in the woods. It was when he came across an abandoned hut with his friends that he decided to embark on this adventure. Renovation, fitting out and other improvements… We must not skimp on the means to make this bed and breakfast friendly and profitable. You can of course count on the help of the inhabitants of the forest, as long as you do them some favors. If you are adventurous enough to unravel the mysteries of the forest, your adventure should even take a whole different turn.

Captain Velvet Meteor: The Jump+ Dimensions

We continue with our first Nintendo Switch exclusive of the week: Captain Velvet Meteor: the dimensions of the jump +. We find there Damien, a young boy overflowing with energy.

Damien has just moved to Japan and thus has a whole new house and routine of life to tame.

Koumajou Remilia: Scarlet Symphony

You will take a little remaster. Certainly, Koumajou Remilia: Scarlet Symphony does not have the same aura as Live A Live (whose remaster was released last week), but the release of its remaster more than 10 years after its initial release is still a notable event that will delight some. It was in 2009 that Frontier Aja decided to reveal to us this Castlevania-style action-adventure game inspired by the Touhou Project universe. Today, CFK is at the helm to offer us an improved version with, in particular, HD graphics. As a reminder, in Koumajou Remilia: Scarlet Symphony you play as Reimu Hakurei in the small town of Gensokyo. The latter has been undergoing strange phenomena recently and sees the disastrous “Red Mist” spreading through its streets. Your mission ? Find the source of evil and fight it to save Gensokyo.

Digimon Survive

In 1997, a small electronic gadget landed on the market. It allowed you to raise and fight small animals, and not just any: Digimon. Thus was launched the franchise considered sometimes as a rival sometimes as a little sister of that of Nintendo, Pokémon. Then there were the anime, the merchandise and a good shovelful of video games that managed to find a certain audience. If we do the math, this Digimon empire took its first steps 25 years ago. A quarter of a century is worth celebrating and the celebration will take place this week with the release of Digimon Survive. In the program : turn-based combat, typical movements of a tactical-RPG, a hundred Digimon to find and, above all, a darker and more mature subject. Note that the last two games in the franchise, Digimon Linkz and Digimon ReArise, were released three years ago in Europe, only on mobiles.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3

We end these Nintendo Switch releases of the week with one of Big N’s behemoths for this year 2022: Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Announced during a Nintendo Direct at the start of the year, the new opus of this legendary series in the world of JRPGs had aroused great enthusiasm. And after being able to get our hands on the game for a few hours, our interest only grew. As part of our preview, we indeed discovered a darker story, more dynamic gameplay and a great adventure to live. Even the disappointing display resolution wasn’t enough to dampen our enjoyment. It remains to be seen what will happen to the full game. As a reminder, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 plunges us into the world of Aionios, torn apart by the war between the Keves and the Agnus, two very different nations. It is in this context that Noah and his companions Lanz and Eunie will live an experience that will turn their destiny upside down.
