A bunch of news about the next Pokémon titles was dropped this morning, but it looks like a little more has leaked out. According to the eShop listing for the titles, if you download them it’ll take up 10 GB of space on your Switch.

For comparison, Sword and Shield took up around 12.4 GB each, while Legends: Arceus took up 6.1 GB. The exact number could change before launch or with patches, but it seems safe to say that Scarlet and Violet will be pretty big.

We found out that we’d be getting a remake of the 1998 suspense visual novel Scar of the Doll a while back, but now we have a release date. The game will be available via the Japanese eShop on August 18th at a price of 1,500 yen. It’ll only come with English language support, so if you’re an English-speaking fan of VNs on Switch, you may be out of luck.

Originally developed in RPG Maker 95, this Switch remake will come with updated graphics, remade music and additional story content. You’ll even be able to disable the game’s horror elements. Here’s the latest trailer:

Players will experience the thrilling origin story of this much-beloved character, penned by Kinoko Nasu, famed creator of the Fate series, himself. You’ll be able to get this visual novel for $40 USD on Switch later this year.

NEOGEO POCKET COLOR SELECTION Vol.2 has been announced by SNK via Twitter. Very few details have been given, and there’s no confirmation it’ll release on Switch. However, seeing as the original title released on Nintendo’s latest platform, it’d be a shock if this sequel didn’t.

NEOGEO POCKET COLOR SELECTION Vol.1 included 10 Neo Geo Pocket games, some already available on Switch, compiled into one $40 collection. It’s probably safe to assume this collection will have something similar. When more news about this title comes out, we’ll be sure to share it.

EVO is always an exciting event for fans of fighting games. It’s safe to say we’ll see a good few reveals there. However, according to Ed Boon, co-creator of the franchise, none of them will be related to Mortal Kombat.

In response to an IGN tweet suggesting Mortal Kombat news might pop up, Ed Boon quickly shot the claim down via Twitter. In his words, “Its time for Street Fighter and other great fighting games to be in the sun!”

Mortal Kombat 12 has been long-rumored, though it looks like it won’t get its time to shine until another day.

AEW Fight Forever, the latest pro wrestling game from Yuke’s, was announced for just about every major platform except Switch.

It seems like the game will be published by THQ Nordic and release later this year. If that’s the case, we’ll be finding out if this listing is accurate relatively soon.
