Xenon Valkyrie+’s random generated levels, entertaining soundtrack, and the pixelated design makes the game a good addition to your library, especially if you are using a PlayStation Vita. However the game’s merciless gameplay makes it tough to finish.
Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive is a fun beat-’em-up with character skill customization. Unfortunately, the game’s short story, repetitive battles, and lack of online co-op make the replay value less than what it could be.
The average time to play through the story of Shu is roughly four hours with additional hours if players are yearning for 100% completion. Shu is an attractive platformer game with straightforward goals but tedious chases. Players who are looking to pick up something quick between other games may want to catch a ride with Shu.
Senran Kagura Reflexions is a guilty pleasure of a game that you will not often see released outside of Japan. It is also quite short, and the price point is a bit hard to swallow when you add all the characters together. However, it makes good use of the Joy-Cons and the HD Rumble. Just be mindful when playing in public, so keep calm and rub on.
Putting aside the quirky visuals, weird enemies, and the saucy maidens, Waifu Uncovered actually offers some solid shoot ‘em up gameplay, making it a fun, short diversion to play between other games in your library. It’s unfortunate that it doesn’t have more to offer outside its normal gameplay, but you get what you pay for. Just be sure to enjoy the waifus at home!
The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 has interesting characters and conversations and a few unique gameplay elements that differentiate it from other JRPG titles, but with dull maps and repetitive battles, exploration will make players yawn.
Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs is an interesting RPG that offers a tons of comedic dialogue and deep gameplay in the well-drawn world of Ascalia. While the game’s user interface and drawn-out battles can put a damper on players’ enjoyment, the various gameplay modes thankfully make the game accessible for everyone. With a little hard work, this kingdom may be one worth saving, after all.
Code of Princess EX is an entertaining beat-em-up game that is simple enough that anyone can jump in. Even though the boss battles can be tedious and the graphics aren’t as polished as they could be, it’s still an adventure of decent caliber.
Like any children’s storybook, It’s Spring Again is very short. However, you can get a good couple playthroughs in before kids will want to move on. At $1.99 (USD), it’s a great price for an interactive book for your little ones to enjoy and get them learning about weather and seasonal changes. Of course, that’s if you don’t mind having your Nintendo Switch in their hands; otherwise, you can pick it up on iOS or Android for $0.99. However you play, it’s a game worth revisiting again and again. Also note that the Nintendo Switch version can only be played undocked as it requires interaction with the touch-screen.
