Nintendo’s eShop Australian listings of Nintendo Switch indicate the third game in Wayforward’s Shantae series coming soon. So prepare to embark on a brand new adventure with Shantae, the hair-whipping belly dancing genie. When she loses her magic, Shantae must team up with her nemesis, the nefarious pirate Risky Boots in order to save Sequin Land from an evil curse. As a pirate, Shantae gains new weapons to advance her quest, slay monsters, battle epic bosses…and hopefully get her magic back in the bargain! But can she really trust her deadliest enemy?
Splatoon was developed by Nintendo’s Entertainment Analysis & Development division, and originated from having a competitive multiplayer ink-based territory control game, which was later expanded to include squids and the ability to swim through the ink. The concept was created by lead programmer Shintaro Sato, who had previously worked on titles in the Animal Crossing franchise. The development team for Splatoon was generally composed of younger Nintendo employees (compared to other titles by the company). The main appeal of the game is its online competitive 3rd person shooter matchups where two teams pick a side and battle it out in these huge special Turf War events hosted under the name “Splatfest”.
The game was noted heading for Switch September of last year by Sega, and now a confirmed release date scheduled for April 4, 2018 (Japan only so far) spotted within yesterday’s unique Japanese version of Nintendo’s digital broadcast.

South Park: The Stick Of Truth is a 2014 role-playing video game developed by Obsidian Entertainment in collaboration with South Park Digital Studios and published by Ubisoft.

There South Park: The Fractured but Whole developed. Rumor is both titles are heading to Switch from Ubisoft, right now.
