Princess Peach: Showtime, Legend of Legacy HD, MLB The Show 24, Crypt Stalker, and Attack of the Karens hit the Switch

Nobody tangles with Princess Peach. Or rather, it seems that few publishers want to stand in her way – it’s a quieter week than usual for the Switch eShop. This can be chalked up to a combination of Nintendo’s biggest Switch release of 2024 so far – Princess Peach: Showtime! – and the fact that many publishers seem to be saving their newest games for the Easter holidays.  

Nintendo’s costume-switching action platformer has been developed by Good-Feel – something only revealed recently – and it appears to offer a similar easy going experience to their previous works, such as Yoshi’s Crafted World. The first review surface comes from Famitsu, who handed out 33/40. They claim it’s a little short, and rather easy, but a good introduction to action games for younger gamers.

NIS America are also back with The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered, a 3DS RPG revival. While not quite legendary, it seems to be going down well with critics, gaining a 7/10 from Nintendo Life: “The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered is a decent, though unspectacular, dungeon crawler that does a good job of defying some traditional RPG tropes.”

Then there’s the annual sporting update MLB The Show 24 – which apparently boasts impressive presentation, but is let down by microtransactions – the 8-bit style Castlevania alike Crypt Stalker, heavy metal rhythm action game Krimson, and the comedic 2D shoot’em up Attack of the Karens from Flynn’s Arcade. Are you ready to save the world from entitlement?
