Resident Evil Games too expensive in Switch

Too much is too much.

Capcom may have overdone it with their pricing for the Resident Evil franchise this time. Every Resident Evil fan was hyped upon hearing the that the triple pack (Resident Evil HD, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4) was coming to Nintendo Switch; however, that excitement died down pretty much as soon as the prices for each was revealed.

All three of the Resident Evil games are set to launch this May 21st and each game costs £29.99 on Nintendo Switch. It’s a huge difference and one great jump compared to how much they cost in PS4 or Xbox One.

Resident Evil 4 is only £15.99 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, almost half the price when compared to the £29.99 on Nintendo Switch. Resident Evil HD and Resident Evil 0 cost £23 on PS4 as bundle. This has caused a lot of negative reactions from players and fans alike, and many of them have started pointing fingers and talking about the “Nintendo Switch tax”. This is a term coined by the great minds in the gaming community, and it´s related to how Switch games come on cartridges instead of discs. The production of those is more expensive than the latter, hence the increase in retail price. But still, gamers reason out that this is not a valid excuse as to why Resident Evil titles are outrageously expensive on Switch, most especially when they will not even be released in cartridges in the UK, since Resident Evil HD and Resident Evil 4 will only be available digitally, there will be no physical releases.

Capcom is yet to comment or publish an official statement over the matter.

Devil May Cry 5 latest trailer is spectacular!

With the release of Devil May Cry 5 coming at the end of next week, Capcom has gifted us with the final trailer, and it comes full of awesome combat scenes and music. It features both in-game cinematics and gameplay from Dante, Nero, and some of the other well-known characters of the series but it also includes a couple of moments that could be considered spoilers, so keep that in mind before watching it.

The highly anticipated fifth installment of the Devil May Cry series is set 10 years after the events in Devil May Cry 4. The world is at peace, and the threat of demonic power is all but forgotten. But nothing will last forever, and a new demonic invasion begins. The seeds of a “demon tree” have taken roots in Red Grave City. Nero, the young demon hunter, allied with Dante will try to stop it, but he finds himself without the extra power from his demonic arm, the Devil Bringer. To make things a bit more complicated, a mysterious character called V has hired Dante to help him catch a certain demon. But V is not a normal guy; he has the ability to summon different familiars to help him fighting demons.

Along with incredible graphics and a great soundtrack, Devil May Cry 5 will also bring some novelties. You will see new weapons and movements for the characters in the game, but also new features, like a training mode and a new co-operative multiplayer mechanic, called the Cameo System, that will allow two players to play together online during some stages of the game. If you are offline, the game Ai will control the second character.

Devil May Cry 5 – Dante

Devil May Cry 5 offers you everything you could expect from it and a bit more. Thrilling non-stop action, incredible graphics and hordes of demons to slay to your heart’s content. You can give the game a try on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One playing the demo right now if you want. It will launch on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on March 8, 2019.

NetEase’s ‘LifeAfter’ Hits the App Store

For some reason, I recently decided to get back into watching the TV show Walking Dead which has kicked off an entire bender of consuming other zombie-related content. (Like, did you know 28 Days Later has a sequel? Apparently I missed the bus on that one.) So, in my life, I’ve got a zombie TV show, more zombie movies than I could ever watch in one lifetime, which leaves zombie games as the next thing I need to get super obsessed with. Thankfully, NetEase just released LifeAfter (Free) which is set in a post-apocalyptic universe where a virus has caused almost everyone to turn to zombies- In this world, the only way to survive is through mastering a surprisingly in-depth crafting system where you’ll be harvesting, collecting, and combining all sorts of materials to create all the tools (and structures) you’ll need to survive.

While you’re doing all your hunting and gathering to survive, you’ll be completing all sorts of other missions to try to make some sense of the zombie hellscape you’ve found yourself in. Interestingly enough, like a lot of zombie scenarios, zombies aren’t your only threat. It turns out humans can be pretty terrible too. When you meet other survivors, you really never know if they’re going to attack you and try to take your stuff, or offer you a new mission and a share of some loot. Oh, and unlike the zombies of the Walking Dead universe, these zombies actually move pretty quickly and are quite threatening- Particularly when you encounter larger boss-style zombies. In a way, this component of LifeAfter reminds me a lot of Left 4 Dead.

One really neat thing that immediately stands out is when you start the game and create your character, you also get a customizable animal companion. You get to name your dog and everything, and this animal companion sort of works like having Dogmeat following you around and helping you out in a Fallout game. While we’re making game comparisons, if you’ve spent any time playing NetEase’s Knives Out (Free), you’ll be right at home with how the game controls and how the menu systems work. Whether intentional or not, it seems like they’ve borrowed quite a bit from Knives Out (which is a really good thing).

What’s really surprising about LifeAfter is that it’s free. This is the kind of game that had it been released in a different time period of the App Store, it would’ve easily been $9.99 all day long. Since we live in a world where few things make sense in mobile games anymore, LifeAfter is free. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first downloaded LifeAfter, but we’ve been pleasantly surprised by how full-featured this game is. The crafting components are weirdly cool, and survival games are super in fashion right now so LifeAfter is pushing a lot of our buttons. Definitely check it out.

‘Pigeon Wings STRIKE’ is a New Endless ‘Pigeon Wings’ that’s Looking for Beta Testers

What started out as a small two month project between two indie developers back in the summer of 2015 actually ballooned into a two YEAR project called Pigeon Wings ($2.99), which launched back in August of 2017. Pigeon Wings is a side-scrolling racing game that plays like a cave flyer mixed with a shoot ’em up, and it’s extremely awesome. We loved it in our review, chose it for our Game of the Week when it released, included it in our Top 100 Games of 2017 list, and I picked it as one of my personal favorites of 2017. So yeah, it’s pretty good. Unlike most cave flyers Pigeon Wings is a level-based game, but a few months after its release an update added a cool endless mode to the game, which fans had been requesting. The only problem was that, according to the developer’s own analytics, hardly anyone played that endless mode. Enter: Pigeon Wings STRIKE, a brand new fully-featured endless follow-up to Pigeon Wings.

Pigeon Wings STRIKE will include many of the features that the developers had wanted to include in the original game’s endless mode but didn’t have time to implement. It’ll feature brand new unlockable characters like Cunningham the hotshot hamster and Presto the “literal fish out of water.” There will also be a local multiplayer mode so you can party up with friends IRL and get your Pigeon Wings on. Finally Pigeon Wings STRIKE will feature more enemies, more layout parts, more achievements, and is basically a full sequel to the original game. Pigeon Wings STRIKE is only weeks away from release but the developers could use some beta testing help to iron out any last minute issues, so if you’re interested in that then head over to our forums and register your interest and look for this one to launch in the very near future.

‘Cultist Simulator’ from Playdigious Is Coming to iOS and Android This Spring and Pre-Registrations Are Now Live

Over the last year or so, I’ve been keeping an eye on what Humble Bundle has been publishing on Switch and PC. They’ve released some great stuff like Aegis Defenders on multiple platforms but also some PC exclusive stuff like Cultist Simulator from Weather Factory. After a bit of teasing, Playdigious announced a mobile port of Cultist Simulator. Watch the trailer for it below:

Cultist Simulator has always felt like something that Humble would get ported to Switch because they’ve put a ton of stuff on Switch recently before other platforms. The way most indie games are these days, we usually have to wait for a PC release to end up on Switch then PS4 then mobile. Thankfully, Cultist Simulator is bringing occult strategy to iOS and Android before hitting any other platform after the original PC release.

The mobile port will support English and Simplified Chinese. What got me interested in the game when I saw the initial gameplay was the roguelike and card based nature. I also enjoy playing card based games on touch so this is perfect. I can’t wait to check it out on iPad. Cultist Simulator arrives on iOS and Android this Spring. You can pre-register for it on Google Play here. The iOS release is not up for preorder yet. There will be a preorder discount though. Check out the original PC version on Steam here.

Gamevice Discounts iPhone Controller to Celebrate ‘Fortnite’ Season 8 for a Limited Time On Amazon

Fortnite (Free) Patch 7.30 added controller support and a whole lot more to iOS and Android. A blog post on Gamevice has various details about matchmaking and how certain aspects on iOS will be handled. Epic Games likes to keep the playing field fair for matchmaking so controller players on mobile get matched with console players. Today, Season 8 arrived and Gamevice has a limited time discount on its iPhone controller.

The Gamevice iPhone controller that costs $79.99 usually is available on Amazon and Gamevice for just $49.99 for a limited time. Fortnite was already great on iOS with 60fps on many recent devices but having proper controller support as well makes it the best portable version since you don’t have to worry about tethering to another device when on the go like you do on the Switch. When it comes to controllers on iOS, the Nimbus or Gamevice are basically your only real options. If you do consider buying the Gamevice on Amazon to get the discount, buying through our links helps TouchArcade in a small way, so get an iOS controller and give us something at the same time!

If you do play Fortnite, we have a dedicated channel in our Discord. Make sure to join our Discord channel here to squad up and get some Victory Royales. If you play only on Nintendo Switch, you can now play with PS4 gamers as well thanks to Sony finally allowing true cross play. Are you excited to use your controller with it on mobile?

SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Pokemon Sword’ and ‘Pokemon Shield’ Revealed, ‘RemiLore’ Review, ‘Ape Out’, ‘Deltarune’, and Today’s Other New Releases, the Latest Sales, and More

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for February 28th, 2019. Another month has passed us by, full of exciting news and new releases for the Switch. March is looking to be another big month, at least in terms of eShop releases, and it’s only going to pick up from there. Today, we’ve got a look at the new Pokemon games, the big list of today’s releases, some sales information, and a review of RemiLore.

News

‘Pokemon Sword’ and ‘Pokemon Shield’ Were the Stars of the Pokemon Direct

Yesterday’s Pokemon Direct ended up being about exactly what everyone suspected it would be about: the latest entries in the mainline Pokemon series. Dubbed Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, they take place in a fictionalized version of the United Kingdom. The three starter Pokemon were revealed, and we also got to see some footage from the games. The games will launch worldwide simultaneously later this year, and are currently available for pre-order on most popular online shops.

Reviews

RemiLore ($39.99)

RemiLore is a bit of an odd beast. Its production values are quite good, with nice graphics, full voice acting, and an overall heavily-polished feel. It definitely comes off like something from at least a mid-sized publisher rather than an indie. Mechanically, however, it’s about as straight-forward as it gets. You hack, you slash, you find some loot that hopefully includes a better weapon now and then, you gather up resources and trade them for upgrades, and do whatever you have to in order to get from the start of each stage to its exit. And there really isn’t a lot more to it than that. Combat is extremely simple and only two steps away from just hammering away at an attack button. There’s a strange gap here; a decidedly small, focused concept is dressed up in some impressively fancy clothes.

I’ve been doing this kind of work long enough that I can easily poke at RemiLore‘s weak points. The combat isn’t completely brainless but it begs for a little more variety and flexibility. The voiced dialogue is sometimes excessive, and the somewhat-randomized order conversations appear in sometimes leads to bizarre outcomes like a character asking what another character’s brothers are like only to immediately after ask if said character has any siblings. The procedurally-generated levels have that familiar issue where chunks start to repeat and little about them feels satisfyingly designed. It’s probably, probably a little too easy for its own good. And above all, it definitely has an issue with repetitiveness. Not enough enemies, not enough enemy patterns, not enough variety in the stages, not enough moves for your character.

And yet, I somehow really enjoyed this game. It’s not that those negative points didn’t bother me sometimes, because they did. But the gameplay was just engaging enough, the characters just interesting enough, and the bizarre arsenal of loot just intriguing enough that I couldn’t stop playing until I made it to the end. It’s silly and colorful and light-hearted in just about everything it does, and that is such an unusual thing in a game like this that it gave the whole thing the layer of novelty it needed to patch over its shortcomings. …

‘Golf Blitz’, the Manic Multiplayer Entry in the ‘Super Stickman Golf’ Series, Has Soft Launched on iOS and Android

If there’s one thing that Noodlecake Studios are better at than producing some of the most compelling arcade experiences on the App Store, it’s creating excellent (and downright hilarious) marketing campaigns. It’s been a while since I physically laughed out loud at a promotional campaign for a video game, but the ridiculously over-the-top battle sequence in their Golf Blitz trailer, as well as their latest take on that orange square from the Fyre Festival campaign, managed to do just that. I guess Noodlecake really do have that sort of influencer appeal within the mobile gaming community. Anyway, the Super Stickman Golf series is one of my all-time favorites, so I’m delighted to announce that Golf Blitz, a real-time multiplayer version of the classic series, has today soft launched onto the iOS and Android in a number of regions.

Sadly, despite the teaser trailer featuring some epic fighting scenes, this isn’t Noodlecake’s attempt to bring the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to the App Store. Instead, Golf Blitz takes the excellent Race Mode from Super Stickman Golf 3 (Free) and turns it up to 11, creating a RPG-esque level-up system and throwing in a ton of power-ups, weapons and customisable options to give the game its own identity. Initial feedback from the game’s beta test has proven to be positive, although with such a strong source material to expand upon, it’s no surprise that Golf Blitz is a complete hole-in-one.

Of course, this is just the soft launch, so with the developer’s proven track record of updating games long after their official launch, we can expect even more content to be added to Golf Blitz over the course of 2019. If you’re based in Canada, Germany, Ireland or South Korea (or you have an iTunes account linked to one of these regions), you can download Golf Blitz from the App Store and Google Play Store now.
