Nintendo’s Nindies independent game showcase may have been brief, but this week’s eShop update runs long.
We already know that a deep-voiced, English-speaking Pikachu travels with teen boy Tim to help out a variety of Pokémon in need. (Tim’s mostly in it to get this Pikachu to find his missing father, which ... well, we’ll just go with it.) But it sounds like Tim is getting a bunch of the credit for Pikachu’s work — work that involves an absurd amount of dancing Pokémon, solving jigsaw puzzles and, uh, even invading other Pokémon’s privacy.
Detective Pikachu will be available on March 23.
All the way on the other end of the spectrum is Outlast 2, a game that gave our reviewer serious and actual panic attacks. This horror game pits an independent cameraman against a Jonestown-esque religious cult in the search for his abducted wife. The game — which is absolutely not for children or, possibly, anyone who attended Catholic school — will be available for Nintendo Switch on March 27.
Other new titles include the following:
The Alliance Alive — available March 27
Castle of Heart — available March 23
Metropolis: Lux Obscura — demo dersion, available March 27
Warp Shift — available March 27
