Upcoming Switch Games July 2020

The year is already half way gone. Normally a month for going on a holiday, but I guess for many of us it’s not gonna happen. But, there’s always gaming! Let’s look at what games we can expect on the Nintendo Switch.

Mind you, not all games to be released are on here. Alternatively you will see games that the big gaming sites don’t mention. These are the games that we are taking notice of, and if given half a chance, you can expect reviews for many of them! It should be noted that unless I have some personal experience with the game mentioned, there’s a link to the descriptions on the Nintendo website.

The Otterman Empire – July 2

An intense quick-fire party shooter with jetpacks set in a world where otters rule!

You must gear up, strap on your jetpack and travel across the galaxy in havoc causing, party game mayhem! With rapidly changing game modes, 8 customisable characters and game changing hazards, no round of The Otterman Empire will ever be the same!

Biped – July 2

Biped is a coop action adventure game with a strong focus on moment-to-moment collaboration between 2 players. Two little bipedal robots, Aku and Sila, will walk side by side and embark on a fun and bonding journey.

You control the robot’s two legs using two sticks. This allows you to perform various moves—from simple walking and sliding to more advanced actions, like operating machinery or cutting wood.

The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature – July 2

Play as the Creature, a wanderer without memory or past, a virgin spirit in a completely fabricated body. To forge the destiny of this artificial being who is ignorant of both Good and Evil, you will have to explore the vast world and experience joy and sorrow.

Imbued with a dark romanticism, the game’s universe draws its astonishing beauty from 19th century paintings. Through evolving landscapes, the boundary between reality and fiction fades and the novel comes to life. Powerful and original, the soundtrack highlights the Creature’s feelings of wanderlust.

Sean dove into the game to meet the creature, find his review here.

Infini – July 3

As Hope drifts deeper into Infinity, Reality begins to suffer. There doesn’t seem to be any way out, and Hope is by nature doomed to carry on. Challenge your mind to help him out.

Master the innovative camera manipulation mechanic to change your perspective and discover new mazes, abilities and characters such as Time, War, Fatality or Technology – who can be helpful allies or deceitful foes in this 8-hour long story-driven puzzle adventure.

Superliminal – July 7

Several writers in our team love a good puzzle game. It will be interesting to see what they make of Superliminal.a single-player first-person puzzle game that uses perception as a mechanic.

You play as someone who wakes up in a surprisingly lucid dream. You have fallen asleep with the TV on at 3AM, remembering that you caught a glimpse of the commercial from Dr.Pierce’s Somnasculpt dream therapy program. By the time you open your eyes, you’re already dreaming – beginning the first stages of this experimental program. As you complete puzzles to get to the next exit, certain patterns and truths become more apparent. In this game, everything is exactly what it seems to be! Wait, no… that’s not right. Everything is the opposite of what you think it is? That’s not correct either. This is a game about breaking expectations and thinking outside the box. What you see is what you get. Literally.

Elden: Path of the Forgotten – July 9

Guide Elden on a mission across a blighted land to save their mother from ancient horrors. Engage in brutal, technical combat and master eldritch magics as you walk the Forgotten Path. Elden explores non-traditional storytelling through indirect methods – like reading an illustrated book in a language you don’t understand. The combat is based on reaction rather than action. Strategically, you will need to manage your stamina and position in order to master the art of parry or to find the perfect time to strike. Visually inspired by classic 16 and 8 bit games, Elden: Path of the Forgotten is a stunning, encapsulating, dark world waiting to be explored.

Cross Code – July 9

This retro-inspired 2D Action RPG might outright surprise you. CrossCode combines 16-bit graphics with butter-smooth physics, a fast-paced combat system, and engaging puzzle mechanics, served with a gripping sci-fi story.

CrossCode is all about how it plays! Take the best out of two popular genres, find a good balance between them and make a great game. That’s what CrossCode does. You get the puzzles of oldschool Action Adventure dungeons and are rewarded with the great variety of equipment you know and love from RPGs.

The Great Perhaps – July 10
