[Updated] No Man’s Sky, NieR:Automata The End of YoRHa Edition, Overwatch 2, and Prodeus hit the Switch

We’ll be honest, we didn’t expect Overwatch 2 to rock up on the eShop this week, with news of a simultaneous Switch release having completely passed us by. Blizzard’s Switch games tend to be belated conversions, arriving long after their other console counterparts. Times are indeed changing.

The 5v5 battlefield brawler is out now as a free-to-play release, with a £34.99 Watchpoint Pack – with a bunch of skins, coins, and the Season One Pass – additionally available. Whether you’ll be able to jump in and play online this week is a different matter as Blizzard’s servers are currently under constant attack. There seems to be a backlash from fans regarding the game’s general existence, with many believing that it’s an unnecessary sequel.

On the subject of belated conversions, a couple are upon us. Platinum’s NieR:Automata The End of YoRHa Edition has managed to impress critics, being yet another miracle conversion. “NieR:Automata is a modern classic. Most importantly for Switch owners, this is a top-notch port that has clearly been produced with respect and focus, often surpassing our expectations in both visuals and performance,” said Nintendo Life, before handing out a 9/10.

That’s joined by No Man’s Sky, which crams an entire galaxy into a Switch cart. For those not aware, the project has come leaps and bounds since its disastrous 2016 launch, with each major update improving the experience significantly. Currently, though, there’s no word on how this Switch iteration performs. Fingers crossed for another miracle port.

The Switch also gets the retro FPS Prodeus this week – a fully rendered shooter that looks and plays like a lost ‘id software’ title circa 1996. It’s ridiculously gory, with a dismemberment system that coats walls and floors in gallons of blood. We awarded the Xbox version 9/10 earlier today.

Spike Chunsoft’s visual novel duo CHAOS;HEAD NOAH and CHAOS;CHILD have launched too, available in a double pack for £39.99. Noisy Pixel cast their critical eye on CHAOS;HEAD NOAH and found it to be worthwhile despite some text faults.

Then there’s Super Jagger Bomb, a rather brazen homage to Bomb Jack – a much-loved retro classic. PlayStation Country disarmed the PS5 version, finding the controls loose and visuals ugly. Shame – Bomb Jack could do with a little more love.

Also, look out for LET’S PLAY CURLING!! from Japanese studio Imagineer, light-hearted and accessible 2D roguelite adventure Falling Out, and the soul-saving action platformer A Frog’s Job. Jump to it!

[Update] Frogwares’ 2010 hidden object adventure Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of The Baskervilles, top-down stealth-action game Serial Cleaners, and the intriguing trash recycling seafaring sim Trash Sailors all launched today.
