Thursday Update with Imagineer developing a Switch game, Japanese Switch game being crowdfunded and more!
● Imagineer Co., Ltd. have confirmed that they are developing a Nintendo Switch game for release in the next fiscal year and which may or may not be a Medabots game (they do own the franchise so it’s the most logical choice!).
● Nintendo Co., Ltd. have apologised for domestic Nintendo Switch stock shortages and that they will increase shipments in July and August (including the Splatoon 2 bundle), and work on further strengthening their production system from the Fall.
● The Campfire for Nyoki Nyoki Uchu Seifuku Hen (from the Puyo Puyo creator) on Nintendo Switch has begun and is looking for ¥10m ($90k) in 77 days. Rewards include a packaged version of the game, a box of Nyokiman and a Dominion MSX 2 rom!
