‘Splatoon 3’, ‘Haiku, The Robot’, plus today’s other new releases and sales – TouchArcade

Hello dear readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for September 9, 2022. Well, we made it: it’s Splatoon 3 day! It is also NBA 2K23 day, and I’ve seen enough sales charts to know that’s going to be exciting for some of you. What few expect is that it is Haiku the robot day on top of that. If you like your Metroidvania-esque games, you should give it a try. After going through all the new releases for today, we have a large list of new sales and a smaller list of expired sales to look at. Let’s go inside!

New Releases

Splatoon 3 ($59.99)

‘Splatoon 3’, ‘Haiku, The Robot’, plus today’s other new releases and sales – TouchArcade

SwitchArcade highlight!

Remember at Disney’s Mulan when Emperor Miyagi said “the flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all”? That’s how I see it splatoon. It took the lemons from the Wii U’s market failure and somehow made lemonade. Splatoon 2 was there early in the Switch’s life and has been a pillar of its library. Splatoon 3 steps into a different kind of context. The Switch is a mature system and the install base is huge, but there’s more competition in this category now too. By all accounts, this is more of an evolution than a revolution, but perhaps that’s enough for the franchise’s many fans. Hopefully we will have a review soon.

Haiku the Robot ($19.99)

SwitchArcade highlight!

Haiku the robot is a pretty chill take on the Metroidvania concept, in which you play as a cute robot fighting his way through a mechanical world full of rampant robots and machines. The reception of the release of this game on PC in April has been great, with fans of Hollow Knight get a lot of praise for it. That’s interesting to me, because it’s definitely a more easy-going game than that. Anyway, if you like the genre and have twenty bucks in your pocket, this is probably one to get.

NBA 2K23 ($59.99)

It’s the newest NBA 2K game. There’s something new about a cruise ship, which is strange for a basketball game. Otherwise, you probably know more or less what to expect from this.

Catmaze ($9.99)

Naturally, Haiku isn’t the only Metroidvania-style game to hit the eShop today. For those looking for something more modestly priced, catmaze follows a sorceress named Alesta as she explores the world of the dead. The world design is inspired by Slavic folklore and mythology, making the game stand out in a rather crowded and competitive genre. I’ll have a review on this early next week, but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve played so far.

To leave ($19.99)

hmm. So in this game you have to make your way through eighty rather challenging maps with a flying door as the mode of transportation. It’s very, very easy to die. You probably die a lot. At least you can enjoy the art style while repeating sections. It is creative and well realized. The story, which touches on themes like mental illness, isn’t quite as solid. If you don’t mind telling a vague story that you may never end up with, then there’s something. Reviews have been mediocre on other platforms, with most citing the high difficulty as an issue. Something to think about before diving in.

Windmill Motor ($0.99)

Yep, another one of these idle tapper/clicker games. Same as all other RandomSpin games in this Engine series, but with a new skin. Yawn.

sale

(North American eShop, US prices)

Yeah, that’s a lot of new games for sale. Let’s pick out a few highlights. Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Cave is the cheapest it’s ever been, and while the original game is very hit and miss, Impossible Hollow is a very good time. Kero Blaster is a fantastic little run-and-gun, The Wizardry of Steve Jackson! is a cool take on the classic gamebooks, and Gnosia is a very well made adventure game. Nothing super interesting in the weekend’s outbox, but take a look through both lists to see what catches your eye.
