Switchaboo Pick of the Week

Whilst definitely being a much slower week, we still have to have a Pick of the Week as is tradition. And that pick is…


Drum roll, please…


Manticore – Galaxy on Fire!

Manticore – Galaxy on Fire saw a few delays, but we have to remember that the delays ensure that the first Manticore instalment has a stable launch on the Switch.

Manticore – Galaxy on Fire gives off somewhat of a Star Fox feel with much more mature art and themes. If this game does well on the eShop, we may see the two other Manticore games make their way onto the Nintendo Switch.
