Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for October 18th, 2021. In todays article, we have some news from the weekend to catch up. We also have reviews of The Good Life and Gleylancer, plus Mini-Views of Nira and Red Ronin. After that, we have a whole bunch of new releases to check out. A lot hit the shop after I had turned in the Friday edition, and weve got summaries of all of those games. We finish things off with a surprisingly massive list of new sales, along with the expiring sales. Theres a lot to look through, so lets get to it.
Animal Crossing New Horizons Update and DLC Incoming November 5th
Sure, the news is a little old at this point, but lets go over it anyway. This came from the Animal Crossing Direct from last Friday. A massive free update is incoming on November 5th, and it has so much stuff that it almost brings everything people have been asking for in one fell swoop. Brewster, Gyroids, Kappn, cooking, and a whole lot more are on the way. And its a good thing, as this will be the last major update for the game. Thats not all, either. A big DLC add-on called Happy Home Paradise is also coming, adding essentially what amounts to a sequel to Happy Home Designer to the game. Set up houses per the request of each client, and reap the rewards. Both the free update and the DLC will be arriving on November 5th, with the latter costing $24.99 as a stand-alone or freely accessed via the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack.
Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack Detailed, Priced, and Dated
While most folks who watched the Animal Crossing Direct were largely happy with what they saw, the presentation dropped an extra little bomb at the end that didnt go over quite as well. As Happy Home Paradise is included as a perk of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack, we were given a price for the upcoming new tier. Its somewhat higher than expected. A single subscription with the Expansion Pack will cost $49.99 per year, with the Family Pass with Expansion Pack costing $79.99. Yes, that is more than double the standard tiers price. You get access to the Nintendo 64 app, the SEGA Genesis app, and Animal Crossing: Happy Home Paradise for your money. The new tier will be available from October 25th, and youll be able to upgrade your existing subscription with a pro-rated additional payment if you want. Lets hope this is just the start of what this tier will offer.
Strictly Limited Games Offers Physical Version of Cotton Guardian Force Saturn Tribute
As we look forward to the addition of Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis games to the Switch via the Switch Online Expansion Pass, let us remember a console that gets a lot less love on the re-release front: the SEGA Saturn. While it wasnt a big success worldwide, the console flourished in Japan, with some truly fantastic 2D games in particular. Many of the games didnt see release in the West, unfortunately. For example, the Cotton games. Cotton 2, Cotton Boomerang, and another shoot-em-up from the same developer called Guardian Force were well-loved in their time, and command absurdly high prices on the second hand market today.
Thanks to Strictly Limited Games and City Connection, youre now not only able to play these previously import-only Saturn games on your Nintendo Switch, you can actually own a physical version. Strictly Limited Games is offering the set in both a Collectors Edition and a Limited Edition over on their store. The Limited Edition gives you the game and a manual in a standard box at a reasonable price. The Collectors Edition is bananas, with an art book, a poster, some arcade flyers, soundtracks for each game, a cup, some stickers, and more. Fancy stuff for the fancy Cotton fan. Both versions are limited to 2,500 each on the Nintendo Switch, so if youre interested its probably a good idea to mosey on over to the Strictly Limited Games Shop.
Gosh, I dont know what to do with this game. Swerys latest is a different game from his well-known Deadly Premonition series in many ways, and yet like it in some others. It has some interesting characters and writing, lots of weird little threads to pull at in the open-world countryside town it is set in, and a quirky sense of humor. It also has a powerful B-grade PlayStation 2 bargain bin feel both in its look and feel. And its really how you feel about that particular aspect that is going to determine how well you enjoy your time with The Good Life.
Youre a big city reporter/photographer who has been sent on an assignment in an English countryside town to investigate the mystery behind why it is considered the happiest place in the world. Youve taken the assignment because you have a massive debt to repay, and your employer has promised to help you take care of it if you succeed. No sooner do you arrive in the town than youre set up with a house of your own, complete with a garden. Youll stumble on sub-quest or two, and then youre pretty much free to do as you like. As the time on your first day starts to tick down, one of the people from city hall asks that you stay inside for the night. You disobey, and discover that almost everyone in town becomes a dog or cat when the full moon is out. You also soon gain the ability to change into a cat or dog.
Every once in a while youre given a time-sensitive mission to complete, but outside of those situations youre free to work on whatever you want to when you want to. You can ignore everything and spend time taking pictures of everything to upload to the in-game internet to make money. You can go shopping for clothes or stop in at the restaurant for a bite to eat. Follow people around all day and see what they do, or just go hunting hedgehogs as a cat for a lark. The games map is large enough but somewhat empty outside of the main town, but you more or less have the run of it. Just make sure you get enough to eat and have a good nights rest now and then. I must emphasize not to forget the latter, as it is the only way to save your progress.
What hurts The Good Life is that its plot isnt as compelling as that of Deadly Premonition, and its open world feels like it comes from fifteen years ago. So many of missions boil down to simple fetch quests that the game immediately hangs a lampshade on the practice. So much of the world has nothing of note going on that it doesnt feel exciting to explore it. The animal forms are fun at first but become old hat before too long. Having to trudge back to your house to save every time, even with warp points, is a pain. The photography element is the best part of the game, and even though you dont get a whole lot of specific feedback on your shots, its entertaining to try to take shots that will get a lot of virtual social media attention. A great game? No, but not without its charms.
SwitchArcade Score: 3/5
There are some games that are so rare or hard to come by that they develop a mystique over the years. Whether or not they can live up to those reputations they build up tends to vary. Luckily, Gleylancers legend hasnt constructed a wall that is impossible for its quality to overcome. Hailed as one of the better side-scrolling shoot-em-ups on SEGAs 16-bit console, it does indeed comfortably hang with the likes of Thunder Force 4, Wings of Wor, and Sagaia. Its main gimmick is that your ship has satellite weapons that can be configured to shoot in a variety of directions. This version includes a modern update that even allows you to control the satellites with the right stick.
While you can find retro rereleases with more features, Gleylancer includes most of the import things. You can make save states, rewind the gameplay, remap controls, choose from different screen ratios, apply various video filters, and use different wallpapers. You can play the aforementioned modernized version or roll with the classic original, and the cutscenes have been translated into English for the first time. The emulation is spot-on, and input lag is minimal. While I would have loved some extra features like an art gallery or some interviews, Im rather impressed at what we get here given this is coming in at a lower price than even an Arcade Archives release.
Whether you want to experience a heretofore hard-to-obtain classic or just like quality shoot-em-ups, Gleylancer is an excellent choice. Ratalaika has done a nice job providing quality emulation and a strong suite of features for this release, and the new modern mode really does provide a distinct feel from the included original. Its well-worth picking up, providing an excellent value relative to other retro re-releases on the Switch.
SwitchArcade Score: 4/5
If youre on the hunt for another crafting/survival game and dig low-fi vibes, you might want to give Nira a look. A mysterious talking totem pole dishes out quests to complete, and you have to go forth and do whatever needs to be done in order to gain experience and level up. The game is played from a top-down perspective where you explore procedurally generated islands. Gather resources, battle enemies, and craft to your hearts content. It seems very simple at first, but it ends up being surprisingly complex. As an affordable alternative to the likes of Terraria and Minecraft, I think it has a place.
SwitchArcade Score: 3.5/5
Mechanically simple and satisfyingly stylish, Red Ronin is a nice pick-up for puzzle game fans. The story starts with the main character in the middle of a fatal fall, thinking back to how they got there. You go floor by floor through a skyscraper, slicing through anyone that stands in your path. Quite literally, in fact. Pressing in a direction will send your character off on a tear until they hit a wall or obstacle. You need to figure out how to reach the exit on each floor without getting cut down by an adjacent enemy. Its easy to pick up, but the puzzles get quite tricky as you go. Nothing we havent seen before, but its well-made and wrapped up in an attractive presentation.
SwitchArcade Score: 3.5/5
The second game in the Crysis Trilogy is now available on the Switch. The aliens have returned, and this time they are attacking New York. Equipped with your state-of-the-art Nanosuit 2.0, you must defend the city and the world against this interstellar onslaught. More first-person shooting fun, and rather snazzy-looking as Crysis games tend to be.
In for a penny, in for a pound. The third game in the Crysis Trilogy arrives on the Switch, offering its unique flavor of first-person shooting action. Use your sweet Predator Bow and a bunch of different types of arrows to pretend to be everyones favorite Avenger, Hawkeye. Except you have the Nanosuit, so youre actually more qualified to be an Avenger than Hawkeye. All he has is a bow and bad fashion sense.
As you can guess from the name, this is a bundle that includes Crysis Remastered, Crysis 2 Remastered, and Crysis 3 Remastered at a rather nice discount versus buying them individually. Youll need almost thirty gigabytes of free space on your memory card for this one, but if youre interested in at least two of the three games youd be a fool not to go for this pack.
Forget paradise. How about a life simulation set in Hell? Youre an official of Hell know as a Harmonizer, and you need to watch over your little corner of the Bad Place. Create your character and meet and greet the various residents. Pick a group and send them out on missions, training them and managing their needs. It falls somewhere between an idle game and a proper sim, but theres no denying theres a certain unique charm to the whole affair.
Okay, let me explain this one. This is exactly the same game as the previous Alpaca Ball on Switch, but with a couple of extra updates implemented. The game changed hands to a new publisher, and they couldnt keep the old version. But if you bought the previous version, this one should show up as free for you. I dont think theres any limit on how long that will be so, but you should go and grab the new version at your earliest convenience just in case.
This second game in the New York Mysteries series of hidden object adventure games sees you trying to crack another murder case. Find objects! Solve puzzles! Play mini-games! Battle Electro from Amazing Spider-Man 2! Wait, what?
This is a puzzle game that has more than a faint whiff of Super Puzzle Fighter about it. And thats perfectly fine by me. Up to four players can get in on this one via local multiplayer, and a story mode offers twenty-three levels to challenge. It doesnt look bad or anything, but Im going to have my nose in Tetris Effect for a long while yet.
A collection of both of the recent Leisure Suit Larry adventure games. If you dont own either of them, this is a good way to get the whole story. Just be careful that the individual games are cheaper on their own, as they frequently go on sale. So will this, mind you.
Gametry has found what looks to be another template to flip on to the Switch, giving us another one of those archery games you can find by the thousands on the App Store for free. If you look through the sales lists, there are plenty of far better games to buy for this price. I recommend doing that.
Yes, this is also Gametry. This probable template is a soccer game that up to four players can play together via local multiplayer. Same advice here, really. You can find better games at this price point, and if you have a couple bucks more there are far better soccer games.
Surprisingly, this one isnt Gametry. That doesnt mean its good, though. This is a simple lane-based endless driving game. Dodge the traffic, grab the coins, and use the coins to unlock new cars when you inevitably crash. At least its reasonably priced?

Thats all for today, friends. What a start to the week! Tomorrow will keep up the pace, though. Sora and the last major update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be arriving, alongside new releases like Dying Light and Regency Solitaire. Well have summaries of all of those new games along with a review or two, some new sales, and maybe even a bit of news. I hope you all have a fantastic Monday, and as always, thanks for reading!
