Metroid Prime Remastered – The first Metroid Prime game has been remastered for the Nintendo Switch system with HD visuals and enhanced sound! Explore Tallon IV from the perspective of Samus Aran. But beware: There’s more to this alien planet than meets the eye. When hostile creatures attack, fight back with Beams, Missiles, Bombs, and more. In addition to remastered visuals, this version adds modern dual-stick controls, allowing you to move around while separately changing your point of view. It’s also the first time this classic game can be played on the go! Metroid Prime Remastered is available now.

Blanc – Experience the poetic tale of a wolf cub and a fawn in the spectacular world of Blanc. Lost in a sudden snowstorm, they will have to lean on each other in order to follow the footprints their families left behind in the snow. Two players can take control of either the wolf cub or the fawn and guide them through the environment, unforgiving weather, and obstacles that they must face together. Each animal has its own unique strengths that complement the other, which you’ll need to make use of to navigate through the snowy landscapes. Build a relationship locally* on the same screen or from far away with online play. Journey home together with Blanc on February 14th.
