Greetings Koopalings! This week over on the Nintendo shops is a little lighter than the past few weeks. Its possible something new could be announced “OUT NOW” (or relatively soon) in this afternoon’s direct presentation but if not you still have a handful of indie games to check out. The highlight is The Trail: Frontier Challenge, a new game from 22Cans and once Fable creator Peter Molyneux. The game is bound to be compared to an Oregon trail, features crafting, adventuring, and mini-game activities wrapped up in a nice, Wind Waker esque aesthetic. We haven’t played this one yet here at PSVG but the steam store has plenty of glowing reviews – 


This Week On Nintendo Switch:

The Trail: Frontier Challenge – Join pioneers from across land and sea in an epic journey across an undiscovered country. Walk down the single-track path of destiny at a calm and measured pace. Get out there and make your mark upon the world, adventurer! Every person you meet on The Trail is another player who will trade with you at campfires located along the way.

TurtlePop: Journey to Freedom – TurtlePop: Journey to Freedom is a platform puzzle game that introduces Bebo, Deephi, Slimmie, Smarts, Willis and Sparky the Turtle. Master the gameplay with multi-character control and turtle-linking, environment manipulation and item deployment and match-three mechanics that make challenges even more fresh, intense and fun. TurtlePop: Journey to Freedom launches March 9.
