Into The Dead 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch on October 25th via games publisher Versus Evil just in time for trick or treat season. The Into the Dead franchise has amassed over 100 million downloads via mobile, and one would expect that success will reach the Nintendo Switch universe as well.
Licensed Ghostbusters and Night of the Living Dead content will also be sold separate on the eShop and both are featured in the physical edition of the game.
The adventure has gamers facing off against a horde of undead over 60 levels and 36 side story missions. Twenty five unique weapons across 8 different classes are featured in the action packed experience.
“Into the Dead 2 on Nintendo Switch will give players plenty to sink their teeth into with its heart-pounding, arcade-style gameplay. We’re thrilled to include the licensed Ghostbusters and Night of The Living Dead content, which make Into the Dead 2 an essential addition to any Halloween gaming sessions.” Said Steve Escalante, General Manager of Versus Evil.
Monster Slayers, a deck building RPG adventure that employs an immersive card-based battle system, hits Nintendo Switch on April 5. As players create a hero to join the Monster Slayers Guild, they undergo a quest through the dangerous Northern Valley to defeat an all powerful villain named Harbinger to become a true Monster Slayer. Developed by Nerdook Productions (Reverse Crawl), the game is inspired by Peter Whalen’s inspired roguelike game Dream Quest.
Gamers battle undead goblins, outlaws, and mighty dragons during the adventure, and they can choose 12 different classes to choose from as they start their journey (Rogue, Ranger, Knight, Barbarian, Cleric, Wizard, Assassin, Beastmaster, Apothecary, Brute, Monk, and Necromancer). To stave off monotony, the developers ensure that each play through is different as each enemy encounter and loot discovery are randomly generated.

As a Generation X gamer, coin-operated games were a way to wile away the school week, and though arcades are not exactly a thing of the past, they were a fixture in the 1980s. Nintendo Switch’s third party lineup continues to grow, this time with an ode to the past with the just released title Namco Museum.
The classic games compilation includes Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaga ’88, The Tower of Druaga, Tank Force, Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, Spy Kid, and Splatterhouse.
Also included is the 2003 four player game Pac-Man Vs., a title based on the the Pac-Man series and supervised by iconic game designer Shigeru Miyamoto. Two Nintendo Switch consoles are required for Pac-Man Vs. (one console will feature the gameplay of three ghosts, with Pac-Man utilized for the other console). A downloadable app on the Nintendo e-Shop enables 1-3 players to enter a multiplayer session of the game that’s hosted by another Nintendo Switch system.
“Over the decades that have passed since these games first hit arcades, they’ve proven to be timeless classics that retain their charm across every era and hardware platform,” said Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. VP of Marketing Eric Hartness. “The Nintendo Switch is the perfect platform to play Namco Museum single player, multiplayer, on the couch, or on the go. There’s something here for everyone, and with the built-in multiplayer capability of the Switch, anyone can join in.”
As a three-time Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner, Johnny Depp must have been born to be an actor, right? Not exactly. He always wanted to be a performer, but early on, his artistic aspirations were to be a musician! But after a decade of pursuing his dreams of rock stardom, his life took a sudden turn.

Producer Kenichiro Takaki has become a household name in the gaming community thanks to his popular Senran Kagura series. Drawing from Takaki’s youthful love for manga, the series centers on the adventures of a group of scantily clad, wide-eyed, and buxom female ninjas.
XSEED Games is set to release the Nintendo 3DS title Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson this summer, and the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game Senran Kagura Estival Versus is slated for a stateside debut this winter.
Hollywood Outbreak had the opportunity to interview Kenichiro Takaki at last week’s E3 2015, held at the Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles, and we asked him about the sexuality that is inherent in the Senran Kagura titles.
“The game does heavily emphasize on the sexuality and it’s an easy way to understand what the game is,” said Takaki. “But of course, if you want to make it a series that has longevity, it’s not like we just wanted to create a sexual content driven game. There’s a solid core, game playing aspect behind it.”
Black is the color of night. Black is formal. “Black is the color of my true love’s hair,” sings Nina Simone. And now, come August 11th, the darkest of all colors (wait..is black a color) is spreading its film noir, shadowed grip on the Nintentdo 3DS XL.
Previous incarnations of the handheld system came in blue, pink, and red, but now AC/DC, Metallica, and just plain black enthusiasts will have much to cheer about in the coming weeks.
The system’s debut coincides with the release of the 3DS title Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. If you haven’t checked out the trailer for the upcoming game, it’s featured down below:
