Mighty Switch Force 2 releases next week

You won’t have to wait long to play the eShop puzzle-platformer — WayForward is releasing it in the U.S. on June 13, and in Europe on June 27.

So, even if E3 turns out to be a bust next week, at least we still have this to look forward to.

Mighty Switch Force 2 screens

After a couple weeks of teasing the eShop sequel, Wayforward has released these first screens showing heroine Patricia Wagon making her return. Instead of capturing the law-breaking Hooligan Sisters, this time she’s joined a fire brigade to rescue the reformed girls across a series of burning stages.

It’s sort of a departure from the original game, but I’m alright with that. Like, what, you didn’t spot the warning in the title? And as rapper Lloyd Banks once told fellow musician 50 Cent, which he subsequently told us, “go ahead, switch the style up / If the niggas hate then let them hate and watch the money pile up.”

Speaking of needing a new Wii U game, Amazon’s got some good prices on a few, like ZombiU for $45, Batman for $50, and Mario and Nintendo Land for $5 off each.

Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition trailer. When the Wii U launches this Sunday, this HD version of the 3DS game by WayForward will be one of the games waiting for you on the eShop.

The update has crazy new HD graphics, and “Hyper” stages designed to be way, way harder than the original game – said original game being tuned to be completed by company owner Voldi Way, who is “horrible at video games,” according to a Polygon feature.

Mighty Switch Force's free update releases to eShop this Thursday, and with it will come five new bonus levels, “enhanced stereoscpic effect” for all existing stages, and a retry button for dedicated speed runners.
I hope other eShop devs (and Nintendo) are taking notes, and start planning free content updates for their titles.

Reports are coming in from the new Nintendo Power, stating that Wayforward’s rad 3DS eShop puzzle platformer Mighty Switch Force will see five new levels added soon as a free update — thanks to 3DS’s support for patches/updates that should come tomorrow.

The same issue also outs an “upgraded” version of Cave Story for eShop, which, if I’m reading correctly, is like the DSiWare version (the non-polygonal one) with widescreen, 3D, and the extra modes from other versions of the game, like Curly, WInd Fortress, and more. 

Apparently, this version will lead to the removal of the DSiWare version from 3DS’s eShop, too (but not from the DSi Shop). Nicalis has a ton of stuff going on right now…

Along with this week’s release of Mighty Switch Force on the eShop, composer Jake “virt” Kaufman has released a downloadable soundtrack on Bandcamp, for the price of whatever. In addition to the music from the game, the download includes remixes from surasshu, coda, cancel, xaimus, and virt himself. It’s a who’s who of musicians who don’t capitalize their names.

Proceeds from the 23-track collection will go to “SHINY NEW GEAR for the WayForward music studio, so you can directly pitch in to help us put better-sounding music into each new game.”

As for, like, the actual game, I’ve barely had two minutes to try it out…

Mighty Switch Force (3DS eShop) looking great. Actually, this trailer’s a bit blurry, but the game still looks great. 

You can view this in 3D either on YouTube (go to the YouTube page if this embed doesn’t work in 3D) or on the eShop. It looks much better on an actual 3DS screen!

Oh, and here are two new screenshots of Mighty Switch Force, too, for good measure.

Mighty Switch Force trailer, direct-feed and in 3D. Did you guys know that YouTube had the option to toggle anaglyph 3D display? Because I sure as hell did not. And yet, here this is, Rad Racing across your screen in 3D.

Anyway, this game looks rad. Not as much like Gunstar Heroes as I expected from the art, but a pretty interesting platformer! Wayforward’s probably going to do pretty well for itself when this comes out on the eShop, especially if the eShop release schedule continues at its current pace…

Game Night 6 features Mighty Switch Force. As always, Giant Robot’s Game Night event looks super fun, featuring a fully WayForward-themed night. This will be the first public demo of the rad-looking 3DS download game, and you’ll also be able to try the other DSiWare/PlayStation Mini games from the company! By the way, Mighty Switch Force's 3D trailer is on the U.S. eShop right now.
And while you’re there, you’ll get to see (and probably buy) the new line of Meat Bun shirts. BE THERE September 17 at 7PM. And before that, BE HERE to RSVP.
