The kaizo-style platformer Repit is coming to Switch on April 8th, 2023. The title will be priced at $3 and takes up 197 MB of space.

Bob is an ordinary person living a simple measured life. Outside in mid-December, it’s snowing a little. After stopping by for groceries and a large pack of ice cream for his daughter, Bob leaves the store and is about to go to the car, but then he slips, falls and let’s go of the full cart. The cart rolls and crashes into an elderly but well-dressed and stately-looking man, knocking him to the ground. Bob tries to get up and run to help the man, but in the blink of an eye everything around freezes, the clouds thicken and a bloody dark fog envelops the area. Not having time to recover, Bob looks at the old man and is horrified, a dark figure with bright red eyes rises above the ground, opens his mouth and says in an eerie voice:

Pitiful brat, I will deprive you of your human appearance, you will forever try to get out of the closed loop of punishment and only hope for deliverance from suffering will move you!

Before the dark figure can finish, Bob feels himself starting to fail, falling underground and beginning to turn inside out. Feeling incredible pain, Bob lands on his new feet in an angular cave…



The Super Mario Bros. movie made its official red carpet premiere just a few hours ago, and all of the film’s stars were in attendance. That includes Jack Black, who showed up in style with one heck of a fancy suit.

Since Jack Black plays Bowser in the movie, it only makes sense that he wore a suit that was Bowser-inspired. As you can see in the video above, Black’s suit include flames flames on the sleeves in legs, but most impressive, it featured a series of spikes on the back of his jacket. Definitely not a suit you want to get close to while standing in line!

With such a unique design you’d imagine this suit would be a one-and-done affair, but with Black’s fun-loving personality, he’ll probably find a few other events to don this amazing creation.

Do yo dare to explore the dungeon?

Developers Dan Fornace and ampersandbear have announced that they’re bringing Dungeons of Aether to the Switch on April 6th, 2023. The title will be priced at $15, and it will take up 196 MB of space.

Dungeons of Aether is a turn-based dungeon crawler designed by Nikita ‘ampersandbear’ Belorusov from the Aether Studios team. Rivals of Aether is known for its intense competition and twitch skills, while Dungeons of Aether allows you to take things at your own pace - but it’s still just as challenging! Every choice you make can lead you deeper into the dungeons or to an early demise. Will you carry out a treasure chest, or be carried out in a pine box?

The combat in Dungeons of Aether uses a dice draft system that ensures each battle is unique while challenging the player to adapt the pool of dice each turn. Use fortune to your favor to defeat your foes, collect treasures and shift the odds in your favor…

Dungeons of Aether introduces four exciting new heroes to the world of Aether, each with their own unique skills and memorable personalities.

Fleet is the self-proclaimed protector of her hometown of Julesvale, although she’s seen as a clumsy menace more than a hero. As the jack of all trades, Fleet is a great character for learning the combat system.

Hamir is a former Wall Runner from the mighty Rock Wall. He has made his way to Julesvale in exile after losing his trusted partner. Hamir now finds himself looking for a purpose and the courage to carry on.. Hamir is strong and sturdy, weathering blows until the time is right to crush his foes.

Slade is a pirate from the far-off Polekai Islands. He has made his way to Julesvale hunting a mysterious rare mineral unique to Julesvale. Rumor has it the mineral is key to saving his homeland. Slade’s style and swagger allow him to dodge attacks entirely if his speed is high enough.

Artemis is a renowned general in the Fire Mora who often fought alongside Zetterburn. She was sent to Julesvale by Emperor Loxodont on a secret mission. Artemis can heal her wounds in battle, showing off her innate regeneration abilities.

The world of Aether is expanding and Dungeons of Aether adds a new, fascinating facet to the ever-expanding lore! Travel to the steam-punk town of Julesvale and brave the sprawling caverns underneath it. In Story Mode, you’ll play a roguelite adventure that has you starting each dive from town. There you can interact with towns folk and spend your hard-earned gold to gear up for your next run.

Each of the dungeons you’ll dive into have new challenges to face and rewards to collect. As you dive into Julesvale Mines, the Lava Caves, the Underground Oasis and the Mineral Deposits, you’ll be able to collect Journal Entries that reveal even more about Julesvale and its legendary past.

For those of you looking for true roguelike difficulty, the Challenge Dungeons are where you will want to test your skills. Each Challenge Dungeon is randomly generated with unique events and fights. Your mission is to go through all of the biomes in the game in a single run.

Story Mode gives you a chance to casually prepare, interact with NPCs, and savor the exploration of the world, In Challenge Dungeons it’s all up to you!. The Challenge Dungeons also feature a leaderboard based on how much gold you have at the end of the run. Will you spend your gold to make sure you can get through or are you greedy?


Back in January of this year, we learned that Kadabra would finally be making a return to the Pokémon TCG after over 2 decades. Kadabra was removed due to a lawsuit from mentalist Uri Gellar, who claimed that Pokémon Co. stole his persona/act to create the Pokémon. In the decades since, Gellar has said he took the wrong course of action and should have never filed the lawsuit.

This has all paved the way for Kadabra’s return in Pokémon Card 151, a new set releasing in Japan on June 16th, 2023. Today brings us the very first look at Kadabra’s return, which you can see in the artwork at the top of this post.

The Pokémon Card 151 set will feature the first 151 Pokémon, and the cards will be in Pokedex order. This release is considered a “Strengthening Expansion Pack” set, and each booster box will come with 20 packs for 5,800 yen.

Chris Pratt has been hitting up tons of TV shows to promote the Super Mario Bros. movie, and his latest stop is The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Rather than just chat about the movie and share anecdotes, Pratt joins Fallon in a videogame trivia session.

This trivia game has both Chris and Jimmy going back and forth on videogame trivia. Some of the questions pertain to Nintendo and Mario specifically, while others are just general game knowledge. The winner of this game manages to avoid having a clogged pipe rain down on them. If you want to see who comes out victorious in the trivia battle, you’ll have to give the video a watch!



Both The House of the Dead: Remake and Front Mission 1st: Remake already have Switch retail releases either released or on the way in North America and Europe, but our friends in Japan have had to go without. Thankfully, that’s going to change in the near future.

Publisher Rainy Frog has announced that they’ll be handling Switch physical releases for both The House of the Dead: Remake and Front Mission 1st: Remake in Japan, and both are set to arrive on June 15th, 2023. The House of the Dead: Remake will be priced at 3,850 yen while Front Mission 1st: Remake will cost 4,950 yen.

It’s not clear whether these releases will include any bonuses not found in the NA/EU versions. If that ends up being the case, we’ll be sure to fill you in.

In the spirit of April Fools’ Day, Limited Run Games is offering a brand new version of the cult classic FMV game Night Trap for Game Boy Advance. Make no mistake, this is a real product that you can pre-order right now! That said, it’s only available for this weekend.

In the original Night Trap game, players could make choices in order to affect what happens. However, in the GBA edition from Limited Run Games, you won’t actually be able to “play” anything. Instead, this cartridge simply plays all of the FMV cut scenes from the game like a traditional movie. Because of this, it probably makes more sense as a collector’s item or a gag gift than a way to actually experience the game.

Click here for more info and to pre-order the game for yourself. It costs $49.99, and pre-orders close Sunday, April 2nd, 2023 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time. (You can also experience Night Trap right now on your Switch via the eShop.) See below for details.


Sorry to do it to you again, Howie, but Night Trap is now available to watch on the Game Boy Advance.

We asked ourselves, “There’s got to be a better way to watch the hit FMV classic Night Trap on the go, right?” Years of R&D, blood, sweat, and tears later, we have triumphed—Night Trap is now on the Game Boy Advance!

Vanishing Co-eds… Bloodless Bodies… Mysterious Intruders!

Five beautiful co-eds are being stalked in an eerie estate. Hooded intruders are invading the mansion with blood on their minds. Watch the murderous action from hidden cameras in 8 different rooms—now in 240 × 160 glorious pixels!


  • Compatible with any system that can play Game Boy Advance games, new and retro!
  • No gameplay included. Just sit back and WATCH Night Trap
  • Available for one weekend only in honor of April Fools, 2023! You gotta watch it to believe it!

Publisher Nexton has shared a new teaser trailer for their upcoming visual novel “ONE.” on Switch. The two minute trailer is a simple display of some artwork from the game, along with a sample of the soundtrack. This teaser focuses on Mayu Shiina, one of the characters that will feature in the game.

ONE. has been confirmed for a release on Nintendo Switch sometime in Winter 2023 in Japan. Stay tuned for more details.


Indie sci-fi RPG Citizen Sleeper has been praised for its coverage of important themes and stylish, tabletop-inspired gameplay. Recently, it was even nominated for four BAFTA awards, including British Game of the Year. In a new interview with Eurogamer, designer Gareth Damian Martin discusses their mixed feelings about having the game in the spotlight, and what it represents.

“It’s a very weird position to be in because it feels like a bit of a veiled compliment. As in, it kind of implies strange things about what games are. What does it mean for a game by a non-binary person that is about trans experience, that is about the gig economy, that is about citizenship and refugees? And to be the best British game in a year? Do I even want to be part of a project that is about sticking all those things under a flag and celebrating them because they’re under that flag? It makes me feel very uncomfortable. That stuff’s complicated.”

Creating a game that summarizes so many important issues certainly sounds like a complicated affair, but we’re grateful that creators like Damian Martin are willing to attempt it. If you’re looking for more insight, Damian Martin goes on in the full interview to discuss the game’s themes and ideas in more depth, including the gig economy, chronic depression, and welfare inequality.

Unfortunately, Citizen Sleeper failed to take home any of the BAFTA Awards it was nominated for, but its nominations still stand as evidence that it’s a game worth looking into.
