Game News Nintendo Switch: 6 games to watch in August 2022
For many Switch players, this month is likely to be placed under the sign of the latest exclusive from the Japanese company, Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Nevertheless, this beautiful month of August has some pretty video game proposals to spare. In short, if you want to take a breather between two or three expeditions in the world of Aionios, here is a small selection of Nintendo Switch titles that will offer you a little breath of fresh air and that will brighten up your other gaming sessions.
The school holidays are only halfway through and now the first outing of the month on nintendo switch wants to send us back to the university benches as soon as possible. Announced a little over a year ago, during a new edition of E3 that was particularly turbulent and rich in announcements, we had to wait a good dozen additional months – in particular due to a postponement – to put hands on this wacky new version from the studios behind Two Points Hospital. This time, the medical infrastructure gives way to a vast university campus that will have to be created and managed from A to Z: construction, management of courses, activities and staff, increase in its reputation, student well-being, … Anything goes! You will have all the time you need to make your choice: Two-point campus intelligently gives you the freedom, thanks to the summer holidays which precede the resumption, to prepare the inauguration of your campus without omitting the slightest detail, before collapsing under the influx of students. Contrary to the monotony of courses in amphitheater and tutorials in class, university life at Two Point Campus is much more exhilarating since the most atypical training can be provided there.. Nothing prevents you from creating a medieval sector to train the next great knights or the future starred chefs of the kitchen with a gastronomic training with small onions. In short, the magic of the campus operates and the students will be charmed, especially since a school of magic, inspired by the world of Harry Potter and called Poule-de-lard, will also be on hand to make these young adults potential wizards.

Worship of the Lamb
By revealing Worship of the Lamb during the 2021 edition of Gamescom, the emblematic video game fair organized in Cologne, the developers of Massive Monster showed us that diametrically opposed elements could make a funny pitch. Yes, for them, it is quite possible to be both the most adorable of lambs and the most charismatic of gurus. But how did we get here? Rescued at the last second from certain death, the gentle ovine of Cult of the Lamb will have to swear allegiance to the benefactor deity who saved him from his tragic fate by organizing, neither more nor less, than a sect in his honor. And for this, the lands of the Old Belief are reaching out to you! On these prophetic lands, you will be able to set up a diabolical cult and make it bear fruit by extending the circle of your faithful, recruited here and there in a whole gallery of dungeons by the strength of your little armed paws. Once the shoddy prophets, the Prelates, are out of it, new followers will come to you, but you will have to remember to keep them under your control by showing you benevolent towards them, by fulfilling their belly, gratifying them and preaching the good word to them. Beyond an experience taking the (lightened) form of a Binding of Isaac — his greatest influence —, Worship of the Lamb has a large management component. Resources to recover, buildings to build, cult to develop, … Paying off your debt won’t be easy — in the event of death, for example, a quarter of your resources will be deducted —, especially since you will have to constantly pay attention to your followers who can quickly turn into dissidents.
Tribes of Midgard
Prisoners of the high summer heat, you want both an atmosphere God of War: Ragnarok or at the Assassin’s Creed Valhallawhich both remind you of the freshness of the Nordic countries, while dreaming of an adventure with strong accents of Diablo on your nintendo switch. However, what is just a sweet dream in your head can become reality thanks to Tribes of Midgard. A year after its release, the very first production from the Norsfell studio teams is settling down on Nintendo’s portable console. Behind its name which indicates that we will embody a proud team of Viking warriors, Tribes of Midgard skilfully mixes the survival game system, the codes of roguelite and a very punchy hack’n slash gameplay, a combo that has already seduced players during its initial release and which hopes to convince owners of the Big N’s latest machine. With your cohort of Vikings, which can be made up of up to ten players, you will have to valiantly defend your village and its surroundings – procedurally generated – from the night assaults of the Helthings, brutal and bloodthirsty spirits, and the Jötnar, terrible giants, who want to trigger the end of time. To achieve this, you can, during the day, collect a whole bunch of resources and equipment (weapons, armor, runes) to then, at nightfall, collaborate to defend as long as possible the shoot of Yggdrasil which sits in the heart of your home. Note that the game is expanding with seasonal content revealing new ways to play and prevent Ragnarök from happening!
RPG Time: The Legend of Wright
With RPG Time: The Legend of WrightJapanese studio Deskworks! gave life to one of the most atypical and original multi-award-winning projects of recent months. However, the creation of such a singular video game has a price since it required no less than 16 years of design and 10 years of development, and this can be understood when you realize how much the title is teeming with ideas. In the manner of a license like Evoland or in the same spirit as the long-awaited The Plucky Squire, RPG Time: The Legend of Wright is not just a single role-playing game as its title suggests since it abounds , in fact, a whole bunch of gameplay ideas. Action, adventure, turn-based combat, mini-games, shoot’em up phases and many more! Equally atypical, the setting of the game takes place in the sketchbook of young Kenta (a boy with an overflowing imagination who dreams of becoming a game designer) which he scribbled until reaching more than 200 pages. Nevertheless, if he managed to build this on his own, thanks to school supplies he was able to recover in his class, the hero imagined by Kenta will need us to draw, erase or solve puzzles, each more ingenious. than the others. The journey will not be easy, but it takes that to help the princess of the Land of Light, a once peaceful place that is now plunged into chaos following the invasion of a slew of demons .
Midnight Fight Express
While the players computer and PlayStation had the opportunity to have a blast — or be beaten — during the fights of SIFUthe other part of the players, in particular those on nintendo switchimpatiently waiting to get your hands on a title as rhythmic and enjoyable as those of the license Hotline Miami. Between gunfights, frantic chases and brawls worthy of a John Wick movie, Midnight Fight Express has all the arguments to offer a hell of a dose of action before Nintendo unleashes the next adventures of the famous witch Bayonetta who returns with a third installment. There where Midnight Fight Express is even more striking is that it is the work of a single developer! Jacob Dwinzel had been working on the release of his game for four years before its official release and, at the time of its revelation, we quickly understood that the developer had not done things by halves. Dark atmosphere, slamming gameplay (strikes, dodges, counters, techniques, …), isometric view to better appreciate the confrontations, brutal completions, … A year later, the title made a thunderous return during the showcase organized by Microsoft and showed us its exhilarating progress in an even more nervous and violent trailer.

After experimenting with the genre of die-&-retry with splasherin the form of a platform game whose aesthetics made us think of a brilliant mix between Splatoon and Super meat boythe French studio Splashteam returns, five years later, with Tinykin. Like his elder, the studio’s new license renews, with originality, concepts that we already know at the tip of our fingers: take up the differences in scale of It Takes Two, add colorful tables worthy of a Super Mario game then graft a gameplay mechanic from the iconic Pikmin and you get Tinykin. New indie representative of the French scene, the very cartoon-style game takes us on an adventure mixing adventure and reflection in the shoes of young Milo, a space explorer who suddenly lands on Earth. But, small problem: Milo is, in reality, much too tiny for this unknown world whose temporality he discovers is blocked… in the year 1991.
