Vengeance’, ‘Monster Hunter Stories’, Plus More Releases and Sales – TouchArcade


Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for June 14th, 2024. We’ve reached the end of another week, and I have to say that we are closing it with a bang. Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance! Monster Hunter Stories! Plus a handful of interesting-looking games you might not have heard of. We’ve got summaries of everything worth summarizing, plus the lists of new and expiring sales for the day. Let’s grab a fork and dig right in, because the weekend is right around the corner!

Select New Releases

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance ($59.99)

Oops, Atlus did it again! It played with our hearts, released an enhanced version game. It might seem like a rerun, like it’s not worth another buy, but it’s not that simple! Okay, so yes, it happened again. Atlus released a game, and now it is releasing a special shiny version of that game that you’ll have to pay full price for even if you own the original. Is it worth it? Our pal Mikhail assures me it is, so long as you enjoyed what you played in the base game. I haven’t tried it yet, but given how much I enjoyed the vanilla game, I’ll be looking into it as soon as possible.

Monster Hunter Stories ($29.99)

Well, we already have the second game on Switch. Might as well add the first one, too. I have a lot of fondness for this game despite some of its rough edges, and I think it holds up really nicely. It was originally built for a considerably more limited console, but it still manages a bit of spectacle. Curiously though, this Switch version doesn’t run as smoothly as one might expect. It’s not bad, but if you were hoping for silky smooth gameplay due to this being a 3DS transplant, you’re going to have to readjust your expectations.

Railbreak ($19.99)

An on-rails shooter where you get to blast away zombies? This might be the only zombie usage I’m interested in these days. This game knows exactly what it’s aiming at, and it might do a better job of it than the actual remake of that game you can buy on the eShop. I’ll be doing a review of this one soon, so I’ll let you know for sure.

Bug & Seek ($14.99)

This seems like a pretty neat thing for those who are into bugs enough to play a slow-life game built entirely around them. Catch up to 220 real-life bugs, fill out a compendium and insect zoo with them, and try to restart the troubled economy of BuggBurg. There are lots of interesting NPCs to interact with, and even a big mystery to solve. I’ll give it credit for putting a different spin on this well-worn genre.

Agnostiko Origins ($24.99)

An action game set in a steampunk version of 1890s Philippines that leans heavily into Pinoy folklore? I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t interested, but it’s an unknown developer and the price is a little high. The trailer looks really rough, but not exactly in a bad way? I don’t know. I’ll have to investigate further.

The Great Adventures of Nedmapagmahal ($19.99)

Your guess is as good as mine.

Froggy Bouncing Adventures ($4.99)

This is exactly what the title says. You get sixty levels spread across four worlds, and there are twenty hats you can unlock for the frog. That settles the five-dollar platformer for today.

A Fragile Mind ($5.99)

Another first-person escape room-style puzzle adventure from the entertaining folks at Glitch Games. If you’ve liked the other titles from them, you’ll probably enjoy this one. If you’ve never played one before but like to solve puzzles, you might like this one. A world of options in front of you, I say.

Bunny e-Shop ($12.99)

A trade war has erupted between monsters and humans, and you’re a rabbit spirit just trying to run your online store in all this mess. You sell carrots and radishes, which seems like a very rabbit-like thing to do. One of those business sim games, though the aesthetic and theme are obviously going to be hit or miss depending on your tastes.

Sales

(North American eShop, US Prices)

Quite a lot of new sales today, with some indies that used to be on sale every other week but recently haven’t popped up. Well, here they are! Perhaps the bigger concern is what is happening in the outbox, and I’ve done something a little different from usual here. The big MEGA HYPER TURBO RAD TO THE MAX sale is finishing Monday, so if you’re going to grab any of those games this weekend is the time to do it. Check both lists!

My hospital visit today went as well as it could, so I’m afraid you’ll all have to put up with me a bit longer. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and as always, thanks for reading!
