Want some original damn games for your 3DS eShop? Well, WayForward can always be relied upon to deliver the goods! The team that ostensibly made DSiWare worth a crap is making Mighty Switch Force, and it sounds hot!

It's an action title with puzzle elements, starring the "feisty" law enforcer Patricia Wagon. The gameplay takes several cues from Metroid as Wagon fights Space Hooligans while completing puzzles that utilize the 3DS' third-dimension gimmickry. Although there are gimmick and block puzzles, most of the focus will be on action. 

The guys making the game are all Contra 4 veterans, so it's in good hands. All told, WayForward has excelled at putting quality digital games on Nintendo's portables, so there's little doubt that this game will kick arse.

Review: Mighty Switch Force

Open world platformer/space shooter A.N.N.E is a retro buffet

Really, why even play clearly deficient retro games? I mean, where are the shmup segments in Metroid? Where are the open world segments in Contra? Where are the line segments in a bisected triangle? A.N.N.E. is one part platformer, one part shmup, one part RPG. And this year at PAX A.N.N.E. has all its systems in play. Maybe we'll all get to play it this year.more

Rain World has competitive slugcat multiplayer and bat attacks

Rain World is still the best. And it's coming to Vita (and more). Jonathan Holmes went and chatted with Rain World's developers at PAX. In the background you can see a very early alpha multiplayer sandbox that looks to be in the vein of Samurai Gunn and Towerfall. You get points for eating flies and lizards and killing each other. Did you know lizard only has one "z"? That's weird.more
