New Releases: Week of December 11, 2017


It’s the  most wonderful time of the year...the holidaze are upon us and the games keep coming.  If you’ve got a Nintendo Switch here’s some more titles you can tell relatives about when they ask what to get for presents.


What’s new for the Nintendo Switch this Week?

Party Planet

Release Date: December 12, 2017

Platforms: NS 


This is a frenetic party game for up to 4 players.


Pinball FX 3

Release Date: December 12, 2017

Platforms: NS  


Zen brings Pinball FX3 to the Nintendo Switch just in time for the holidays. It’s been awhile since I checked out their new tables and looks like some impressive licenses: Aliens, E.T., Back to the Future, Bob’s Burgers, and Archer to name a few; all  of which are available on Switch.


The End is Nigh

Release Date: December 12, 2017

Platforms: NS


This spiritual successor to Super Meat Boy hits Switch this week.



Release Date: December 12, 2017

Platforms: NS    


Another spiritual successor, this game is from former Rare employees that worked on the Banjo-Kazooie titles.  It received mixed reviews for being too true to it’s old skool Nintendo 64 roots and not bothering to modernize. Will be interesting to see what the new generation of gamers think.


Coming This Week to Other Platforms
