New SEGA Genesis Games Hit Nintendo Switch Online, Plus Today’s Releases and the Latest Sales – TouchArcade


Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for December 16th, 2022. Well, we’re properly heading for the end of the year now, folks. Only three new releases today, and none of them are going to have you running up and down the street shouting at the top of your voice. We have some news in the form of some new SEGA 16-bit games for Nintendo Switch Online, and a very robust list of new sales to check out. So it’s not all quiet, I suppose. Let’s get to it!

News

Four More Games Hit the Genesis Selection of Nintendo Switch Online

It’s been a few months since anything new was added to the Genesis app for Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack subscribers, but we finally have some new… old games to play. They’re all first-party SEGA games this time, and nothing really too exciting. If you own the SEGA Genesis Classics Collection, they’ll all be familiar. In order of original release, the new titles are Columns, Alien Storm, Golden Axe II, and Virtua Fighter 2. All decent in their own ways but nothing very unexpected either. Update your app and the four new games will be there, easy as that.

New Releases

Panda Punch ($4.99)

If I had a nickel for every game where you play as a red panda this week, I’d… well, I’d have ten cents, but you have to admit it’s a bit odd that it happened twice. Anyway, this is a puzzle platformer that reminds me ever so slightly of Super Bat Puncher Demo. You’re a red panda, you have some kind of bionic arm, and you have to use it to make your way through fifty-eight levels. Seems pretty fun for a fiver.

Napoleon Maiden Episode. 1 A maiden without the word impossible ($24.99)

This is a visual novel about a guy who gets hit by Truck-kun and ends up in 19th century France. But not normal 19th century France, no. This is a 19th century France where Napoleon Bonaparte is a cute anime girl. I mean, sure. Why the fleck not? Oh, and she and various other girls (who are also girl versions of dudes) have superpowers and battle each other with them. I am shrugging right now. Might be stupid enough to be fun.

Elves Christmas Hentai Puzzle ($2.99)

Phew, tough haul today. They tell you to stay in school, but sometimes you do that and still end up writing about low-rent lewd (but not explicit) puzzle games that can’t even be bothered to come up with a decent puzzle mechanic. It’s a jigsaw puzzle without the jig. Twenty-six levels, three bucks.

Sales

(North American eShop, US Prices)

Lots of great sales kicking off today, including just about all of Square Enix’s games and a number of cool indies. Treat yourself: grab Arcade Paradise. And if you have ever been even the slightest bit interested in the Yooka-Laylee games, they will probably never be cheaper than they are now. Four bucks! I spend more than that on an ice cream cone a few weeks ago. Not much in the weekend outbox, so feel free to fill your boots with the new stuff.
