Another week has come and gone, with plenty of Switch games to last us. Last week I bought Ciel Fledge, an adorable looking daughter raising simulator that I’d recommend you check out. This week, I’ve got Rune Factory 4 Special in mind. So let’s start with that as we look at 6 Switch Games Coming Out This Week!
Rune Factory 4 Special – Tuesday, February 25th (US); Friday, February 28th (Europe)
First, after close to a decade, we’re seeing Rune Factory 4 ported from 3DS to Switch. The game is an action RPG set in a town where they worship a dragon god. Shockingly, the main character has amnesia. They try to restore their memories while helping out the town.
Farm, craft, and battle as you befriend the townspeople – and perhaps even get married and have a child! The game sees a sharp difficulty spike in the third and final arc, which may be perfect for those who love a challenge. With the max level at 50,000 according to Google, fans of Disgaea may be down for the long grind despite the different battle styles. Are you up for a challenge? Check out Rune Factory 4 Special!
Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection – Tuesday, February 25th
Secondly, check out six classic Mega Man titles: 1, 2, 3, 4, ZX, and ZX Advent! (I wonder what ZX stands for? No results from Google, unfortunately.) In this version of the game(s), there’s a casual scenario mode as well as a save assist feature for players that would like to enjoy the story at their own pace.
That’s a great feature for the busy, busy players of today! There’s also a new, leaderboard-based mode that is exclusively in this version of the games. Will you be a…Mega (Wo)Man and get the high score? Personally I’m more interested in Battle Network – what say you, Capcom? Will we see those games released on Switch? Fingers crossed!
The Unholy Society – Tuesday, February 25th
Next, we see a 2D adventure game combined with action elements. Inspired by the ‘80s and ‘90s, this game involves demons, gods, and monsters attempting to get rid of the so-called “big guys” in religion. Who will stop them? The pope requests Bonaventura’s assistance. Along with his friends, he goes off on an adventure to stop the bad guys! I like the name, as well as the $6.66 preorder discount. It looks like it might be pretty funny, but we’ll have to see as it releases this week.
Two Point Hospital – Tuesday, February 25th
In addition, this week we see Two Point Hospital, the hospital building management simulator, on console for the first time ever! Build, cure, and improve, say the developers! Design hospitals, manage staff as well as the healthcare organization, and cure unusual illnesses! This version of the game includes two DLC as well! I love simulation games, so hopefully this… cures… some boredom for me!
Wanderlust Travel Stories – Thursday, February 27th
Next up, the developers call this one a bridge between literature and gaming. A group of strangers share their stories in a bar on the world’s most remote island. This is “a book that you shape” in which your choices change the characters’ moods.
There are four long stories and five short ones. Each playthrough will be unique. Set in real places, you’ll get a glance at places like Bangkok, the Antarctic, the Serengeti, and more! (I sure wish I could travel more – this sounds like it’ll inspire some nostalgia for me!) The description states that this game will introduce you to “slow gaming,” so if you’re into fast paced games this might not be for you. As for me, I’m always down for visual novel-esque games, so I’ll be sure to check it out!
Hero must die. again – Thursday, February 27th
Finally, this game sure has an interesting title. The hero of the game defeated a demon, but lost his own life in the process. He was given five more days to put his affairs in order. Your job is to guide him through the game to get the best possible funeral. Your character will grow weaker as the days progress. There are over fifty different funerals/endings as well as eight different heroines you can pursue. This sounds like an interesting concept. I’ve never played a game where characters get weaker. So I’m excited to see how this one turned out.
Overall the Switch games sound pretty good this week. What will you be checking out? The JRPG, the simulation game, the visual novel? Or will you be bold and attempt them all? Let us know in the comments!
