Ms. Splosion Man (Switch eShop) Review

Title: Ms. Splosion Man
Platform: Nintendo Switch eShop
Developer: Twisted Pixel Games
Publisher: Twisted Pixel Games
Release Date: November 22nd, 2018 (NA)

Review copy provided by Twisted Pixel Games

This is a shocker. What we have here is the first ever non-Microsoft console game by the formerly Microsoft-owned developer Twisted Pixel Games. Microsoft bought them back in 2011 but spun them off in 2015. Every one of their projects before and after they were owned by Microsoft were (console-wise) only on Microsoft consoles (exceptions being PC and mobile devices, which Microsoft release games on anyway).

Ms Splosion Man was Twisted Pixel Games’ fourth title (released back in 2011 on Xbox 360) and is the sequel to the original Splosion Man released back in 2009. For the Switch version, Twisted Pixel Games made a number of enhancements. Most notable is the framerate being doubled from 30fps to 60fps, and it’s apparently higher resolution to boot (though I don’t know the exact numbers). HD Rumble is also supported, AND single-Joy-Con play is as well! So how is this game anyway? Read on and find out!

THQ Nordic today announced that three new games are being released on Switch; Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, and The Raven Remastered. The latter two were known to be coming prior via the Brazilian rating board.

THQ Nordic only said in the announcement that all three are due in early 2019, but apparently we may already have actual dates for all three games.

First via its official trailer, The Raven Remastered is due on January 22nd, 2019. Next via its Amazon US page, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is due on January 29th, 2019. Finally via its own trailer as well, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is due on February 5th, 2019. See the pattern? All are due one week after another on Tuesday. For reasons unknown Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy didn’t get a trailer.

All are releasing at both retail and on the eShop for $29.99.

Are you looking forward to any of the three games? let me know in the comments below!

This is a 2-pack of both Yomawari games previously released primarily for Vita; Yomawari: Night Alone, and Yomawari: Midnight Shadows. Aside from the PC versions, this is the first HD release of Night Alone, since only Midnight Shadows came out on PS4 as well.
