Another week and another massive batch of games announced for the Switch. This week have have a real strange mix, with a number of titles from Flyhigh Works, after they hosted their only little Direct type of announcement. While a lot of the games they announced have not been confirmed for release outside of Japan, a least one has, so let’s get to it.
Lanota is another game that jumps from mobile to Switch, this time it blends storytelling with musical rhythm gameplay. The developers are proud of their music element describing it as “it blends intuitive and stylish rhythm gameplay with dynamic beats and a rotating play area”. So release date as of yet, but I would imagine sometime by the middle of the year.
You and 3 friends can join together in this action platformer, inspired by years gone past. The 4 players must fight back against Tsukigami, the Moon God, who is mad at the inhabitants of the forest and transformed all of them into stone. With multiple locations to explore and a system that will make each single day you play, feel different from any other, there is plenty to do here. No release date has been given at this time.

If you could not tell from the description, or the trailer below, Breakers did start out as a mobile game and is now making the jump to Switch.

Developer Sushee might sound familiar, that is because they just released Fear Effect Sedna and now they have announced Goetia is coming, but what is it? Well, the ruins of any village are the silent testament to its final moments. The ruins of Oakmarsh are no different. Their telling silence, the dust blanketing what was once a quiet village near Coventry. The game itself is out this coming week, so not long to wait at all.
