Hello dear readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade review of March 17, 2022. In today’s article, we have a bunch of new releases worth checking out. The best of many Persona 4 Arena Ultimax as well as Lost Egg 2, but there are other interesting names. We’ve got summaries of all of them, as well as the usual listings of the latest sales and discounts expiring tomorrow. We even have some small news, which is rare on a Thursday. Well, go ahead.
New SEGA Genesis games added to Switch Online
This one just fell out of the sky without much fuss. Come to think of it, the same thing happened with the latest SEGA Genesis update for Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack subscribers. There are three new games in the SEGA Genesis app, and they are good. The treasure library has been expanded with an isometric role-playing game. Light Crusader and ultra-hardcore action game alien soldieras well as the Sunsoft/SEGA cute-em-up app super fantasy zone. All decent games worth playing, for sure. Go and update the app and get to it!
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax ($29.99)
Atlus and Arc System Works have brought back their amazingly excellent one-on-one fighter based on A person row. Characters from Persona 3 as well as Persona 4 put together in what is basically a genre-bending sequel to both games. Due to the lack of an online game rollback that will appear in other versions of this re-release, and not as crisp graphics, this may not be the best choice if you have other options. However, those who are looking for battles on the go, or people who are just rocking the Switch, will not be disappointed.
Lost Egg 2: Be Together ($2.99)
Don’t look for the first one on Switch, we’re jumping right into the sequel. It’s a kind of fast-paced 3D platform game where you play as an egg that wants to get into the pan and become breakfast. Of course, eggs are fragile things and you don’t want to break them before reaching the pan. Search the stages carefully to try and find the hidden toast, because what good is eggs without toast? It even has online play for up to ten players at the same time. For three dollars, it’s just amazing.
Gal*Gun Double Peace ($39.99)
Yes, it’s different Gal*Pistol port. It’s pretty popular double worldwhich, if I understand correctly, is the second Gal*Pistol game, but not to be confused with Gal*Gun 2. It’s a completely different game. Either way, this is a rail shooter. You shoot pheromones at lustful schoolgirls, trying to subdue them, bringing them to ecstasy. There are multiple endings and many upgrades to earn as you progress. This version includes all the DLC and costumes from the original game for one reasonable price. I’m sure you already know if this is yours or not, so let’s leave that and move on.
Boxing Gym History ($14)
Kairosoft offers its own take on another sport, this time in the world of boxing. Manage your boxing gym, train fighters, do marketing and try to achieve great success. Don’t worry, you will. After all, that’s how Kairosoft’s simulations are designed. It’s also a bit pricey compared to the mobile version and doesn’t really offer much to justify it. At the moment I have a broken record with them, but personally I prefer to play these games on my iPhone. If you think otherwise, here’s some more fun for your Switch.
Rolling Thunder Arcade Archives ($7.99)
The latest addition to Arcade Arcade is a watershed moment in Namco’s 1986 “run and gun” game. rolling thunder. While its star faded due to IP lying fallow for about thirty years, this game has inspired countless other games with its intense firefight and hordes of cannon fodder enemies to take down. While Hamster did their usual great job of releasing this game on Switch, it’s worth mentioning that this is one of the games included in the Namco Museum a collection that includes several other games. You’ll probably get better bang for your buck if you’re not an avid collector of Arcade Archives.
Dark Deity ($24.99)
It doesn’t take long to understand that this is a tribute Fire Emblem games, and he seems to be focusing on releasing the Game Boy Advance. Judging by the reviews in its PC version, it does its job well. A little rough around the edges to be sure, but it hits most of the notes you would want something like this. Create a squad of thirty playable characters, each with a strong personality that can build relationships with others. One way or another, a war begins, and you need to save the earth from destruction. Something like that. There are twenty-eight tactical turn-based strategy missions to complete, which is roughly the size of a real book. Fire Emblem. Good.
This game seems to complete the so-called wine trilogy. Replica as well as legal dungeon. The gameplay consists mainly of cracking cipher codes, which will allow you to read a journal explaining the events that took place during the three day funeral. Rather, the explanation of events given by the author of the magazine. You decide what to believe and what not.
Clutter 1000 ($9.99)
This is a puzzle game in which you have to carefully go through each of the thousands of puzzles to find matching pairs and remove them. There are many different topics that complicate the task. There isn’t much I can say about it.
This is a narrative adventure about a Kansas pig farmer who helps the mafia destroy evidence. He decided that he had had enough of this dishonorable life, and he needed to tell about this assassin who was dumping his last body. He also turns out to be an old friend, and both of them understand what will have to be done if the farmer decides to leave this life. But they have a day to speak out, and they will speak out. You will ultimately have to make a decision at the end of it all, but you will have to accept the consequences either way. Interesting stuff.
Kurokami-sama’s Feast ($12.99)
It’s a horror-themed visual novel about a trio who find themselves in the service of a dark goddess trying to regain their power. The best way to get well is to eat some nutritious food, but Kurokami-sama has rather specific tastes. You’ll have to hunt monsters to use them as ingredients for the dishes she wants to eat, and she’s willing to lend you some of her power to do so. This adds an element of resource conservation to the game, which, combined with the usual choice-based structure, helps this game stand out a bit from the crowd. It’s up to you to decide what you want to do with Kurokami-sama: appease her, confront her, or seduce her as you see fit.

That’s all for today, friends. We’ll be back tomorrow with the rest of the week’s releases, as well as a bunch of sales and maybe a little news. We had a big earthquake here last night, and my apartment was shaking a lot. It’s ok, but it certainly didn’t contribute to a good sleep. Well, sometimes that’s life in Japan. It’s not all catgirls and giant robots. Have a great Thursday everyone, and as always, thanks for reading!
