    Little Kitty, Big City – May 9th

    As the title suggests, you control a small cat in a small open world set within a bustling, Japanese-inspired metropolis. Your goal is to find your way home, but the many distractions and opportunities to help fellow animal friends or cause chaos can delay your departure.

    Yaris Rising – Late 2024

    Wayforward and Atari are teaming up for a 2D Metroidvania reimagining of the 1982 classic Yars’ Revenge. This side-scrolling platformer stars Amy Kimura, a young hacker (using the handle of Dude) who becomes embroiled in an international conspiracy centered around a corrupt corporation. Dude can blast robots, climb platforms, sneak through vents, hide in doors, and more.

    Reinvent Yourself: The Personality Test Game – Summer 2024

    The adventure, set in 2023, involves an android whose creator has died. Unaware of his purpose, you’ll piece together your past by interacting with characters and trying to determine what the Doctor had in mind for you. Decisions mold Android into 23 personality types. Are you a hero, explorer, craftsman, or gambler? Whatever the case, Refind Self encourages multiple playthroughs, and you can share results and compare choices and personality outcomes with other players.

    Sticky Business – Today

    First arriving last summer, this casual shop simulator is now available on Switch. Players run a sticker shop where you’ll use more than 400 elements and effects, such as sparkles and shine, to meet specific customer requests. Giving users the stickers they want allows them to open up to players and share their individual stories. The Plan With Me DLC adds new sticker elements and customer stories, and a bundle containing the DLC and the base game is also available.

    Anton Blast. November 12

    As the dynamite Anton or Annie, smash through levels to reach the devil himself, who has stolen your precious soul stash. Levels begin by setting up bombs, then use your mighty hammer to smash enemies through the destructible environment. Reaching the end triggers a timer where you must run to the start before the entire level explodes. Is. A demo is available later today, and Anton Blast will launch as a limited time console.

    Valley Peaks – 2024

    As a mountain-climbing frog, use your tongue to swing across mountain peaks to plant a radio tower to restore communication with fellow climbers.

Along the way you’ll find equipment to ease your climb, play mini-games, and sidecoast with other frog climbers.

    Lorelei and Laser Eyes – May 16

    This non-linear puzzle game published by Annapurna will finally launch next month.
