Today seems to be a busy week both for Nintendo and indie developers. We all know Super Mario Maker 2 is launching this week, but here are some hidden gems that are certainly worth checking out.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
Having first been succesfully funded through Kickstarter with a budget of over 5 million, developer Artplay is now bringing the metroidvania to the Switch thanks to 505 Games.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is an exploration-focused, side-scroller action RPG by Koji Igarashi. Play as Miriam, an orphan scarred by an alchemist’s curse that slowly crystallizes her body. Battle through a demon-infested castle and defeat its master to save yourself, and all of humanity!
Having first been released last year through Steam by developer Boomfire Games, Furwind sees you embarking this epic adventure in which a little fox will fight the ominous darkness that is invading its world.
The village of our protagonist, Furwind, has been consumed by the flames at the hands of the malicious shamans of the cult. Before securing the survivors, Whiteclaw the clan chief, asked you to end the terrible evil that threatens all the inhabitants of the jungle.
The Switch has seen many, and will receive many good shoot’em-ups and Q-YO Blaster is the next shmup to test your evasive and shooting skills in a game with peculiar characters, strange enemies, weapons and many explosions. The game is developed by Forever Entertainment.
Q-YO Blaster has a nice 2d environment with detailed pixel art scenarios, varied enemies section, stages, powers, improvements and many more. Enjoy the rudeness with weapons, special powers and help from mystical beings.
We could actually go on and on this week of interesting indie releases. Adventure fans should take a look at Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love from Artifex Mundi. Reef Entertainment is also bringing the next installment in the Neptunia series with Super Neptunia RPG. Or if you want a more crazy platformer you should definitely pick up the hilariously frustrating Human Rocket Person from 2nd Studio.
