Takotan and Witcheye both available for Switch in Japan today

Two more titles have been surprise-released for Switch in Japan. Both Takotan and Witcheye have launched, and you can check out details for both below.

The world has been taken over by an alien invasion. On the eve of destruction, humanity calls out for help! Takotan is a retro shoot’em up inspired by 16-bit classics. Save the world from alien invasion by shooting and dodging your way through 8 action-packed levels with sinister bosses! Collect a variety of power-ups including lasers, bowling balls and ninja stars to take down enemies and defend the planet.

Features:

• Play in Normal Mode with 1000 shield and 3 lives, letting you recover if you don’t take another hit too quickly.
• Test your skill in Panic Mode with only a shield power-up and no HP, allowing only 2 hits before you’re cooked!
• Design your own challenge with Custom Mode to set max shield, lives, weapon, starting level and more.
• Enjoy a more casual experience in Assist Mode, cutting all damage in half.

Witcheye is a big, colorful, old-school platform adventure with a unique control system that gives unparalleled control over the hero. Set off on an adventure as a mild-mannered witch who transforms into a flying eyeball of vengeance after a smarmy knight and wizard steal her spell ingredients. You'll guide her through 50+ levels, each containing something completely unique: tricky new enemies, mysterious new environments, and puzzling new secrets. These elements are brought to life with colorful, clean pixel art and a lively, head-bobbing original soundtrack.

Designer Peter Malamud Smith was the co-creator (with Charlie Hoey) of the viral hit The Great Gatsby For NES, and creator of the well-received mobile action puzzlers Satellina and Satellina Zero.

Old-school platform adventure "Witcheye" coming to Switch tomorrow

I spy something with my witchy eye...

Devolver Digital has announced that Witcheye from developer Moon Kid will be launching on Nintendo Switch (and Steam) tomorrow, August 27th. Previously exclusive to mobile devices, the Switch will mark the console debut for the adventure platformer. Check out a synopsis of the game below or the mobile trailer above!

Set off on an adventure as a mild-mannered witch who transforms into a flying eyeball of vengeance after a smarmy knight and wizard steal her spell ingredients. You'll guide her through 50+ levels, each containing something completely unique: tricky new enemies, mysterious new environments, and puzzling new secrets. These elements are brought to life with colorful, clean pixel art and a lively, head-bobbing original soundtrack.

Witcheye is a new approach to platforming with a free movement dash through the air. Players are able to stop on a spot, reverse direction, or alter their course at will. Bounce into devilish little beasts, snag collectables and make it to the goal of each level however possible.

Designer Peter Malamud Smith was the co-creator (with Charlie Hoey) of the viral hit The Great Gatsby For NES, and creator of the well-received mobile action puzzlers Satellina and Satellina Zero.
