We have seen the revelations of Oxenfree II and OllieOllie World, has a new trailer for TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, learned that Konami has a new action game in the works, and were surprised to learn that the critically acclaimed Fez is coming to Switch today. But if you missed the showcase, we’ve rounded up the remaining big announcements and trailers in one convenient place to make sure you don’t miss out on some promising titles launching on Switch (and, in some cases, other platforms. ). year.

Route 96

This story-based, procedurally generated adventure game centers around a teenager who meets another youngster as he embarks on a roadtrip through the mountains while being chased. Questions such as your goal, who is chasing you, who you meet and how they will help you depend on your choices and the route you decide to take; literally and figuratively. Look for Road 96 on Switch and PC later this year.

The game takes place in a futuristic version of Detroit where players will run, jump and slide to the beat of local and international hip hop artists in a bid to save the future. If you think this looks awesome, you can try it out via a playable demo which will be available on the eShop later today.

Last Stop comes from Annapurna Interactive and is presented as an anthology drama with three stories in one. Uncover the mystery of Switch and PC later in July.

The Longing is a dark and unique adventure game launched on Steam last March. Players control a minion who must wait 400 actual days for him to wake up.

There is no play: wrong dimension

This bizarre title was a big hit on PC last year, and Switch owners now have a chance to bask in its weirdness. What is this game, exactly? Let’s just say the less you can get in, the more fun you’ll have. Or you can watch the trailer above to get a feel for it, I guess. The best part is that there is no game available on the eShop today!

This unique action game features a futuristic take on Mesoamerica and stars Ashley, a warrior who sports a giant robotic fist. She will need such a heavy hand to fight against gigantic gods. The fist can be upgraded and is also used to explore large levels via a parkour style traverse.
