‘Slay the Spire’ Gets Updated, ‘Rhythm of the Gods’ and Today’s Other New Releases, the Latest Sales, and More – TouchArcade


Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for March 23rd, 2020. In today’s article, we’ve got a couple of news items about game updates to start things off. We then head over to summaries of today’s new releases and finish things up with a curated but still rather large list of new sales to check out. There are some really good deals to be had right now, so be sure to take advantage! Let’s go!

News

‘Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3’ Expansion Owners Get More Costumes

A massive wave of 15 new costumes for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 have been revealed over the last week as part of next week’s free update that will be accompanying the big Fantastic Four Expansion Pass content drop. On top of those costumes, however, another set of suits is on the way for Expansion Pass holders. This time it’s the X-Men getting kitted out. Iceman gets his All-New X-Men threads, Cable gets a Classic look, Jean Grey gets her original Marvel Girl outfit, and Gambit gets his cool Age of Apocalypse look.

‘Slay the Spire’ Receives Huge Update Today

Slay the Spire is a really cool game that I’ve lost countless hours to since it came out on Switch. It appears I’ll be losing even more time to the game soon, as the version 2.0 update will be arriving on Switch today. It includes a new character called the Watcher, who uses divine stances and a special staff to deal with her foes. She has a unique set of cards and several relics. In addition to the new character, the update will also bring some balance adjustments, new potions, bug fixes, and all the other usual good stuff we like to see in this sort of thing.

New Releases

Rhythm of the Gods ($4.99)

SwitchArcade Highlight!

This is an auto-running rhythm game along the lines of things like Muse Dash or Bit.Trip.Runner. You have to jump, slide, block, and slash to the beat in order to keep the Rhythm Gods happy. There are a couple of different modes, including an endless mode to keep you busy once you’ve finished the story. Nothing new here in terms of gameplay, but the Greek mythology theme, stylish graphics, and excellent music make this an easy enough game to recommend.

Bug Academy ($12.99)

Take a variety of bugs through 2.5D levels of physics-based action and help them graduate from bug academy. And you know? It’s actually not too bad. It has a lot of rough edges, but it’s certainly amusing enough. The gameplay stays quite fresh all the way through thanks to the number of different tasks and bugs you’re dealing with. The game got a fairly positive reception when it came out a little while ago on PC, and while it is more expensive on Switch, it’s only a difference of a few bucks. Not something I’d run down the street shouting about, but if you like the sound of the concept, you’ll probably enjoy the game.

Sales

(North American eShop, US Prices)

There were a lot of new sales since the last time we updated, and while a large amount of them are the usual near-weekly bunch, there are a number of more interesting ones as well. I’ve cut out a fair bit of the chaff this time around, but the list is still quite big. I’d recommend looking at Baba Is You, Pikuniku, Conduct Together, Crossniq+, and Drawful 2 for starters, but there’s a lot of good stuff in here. The outbox also has a lot of goodies in it, so choose wisely.
