‘Class of Heroes’, ‘Toridama 2’, Plus Today’s Other New Releases and the Latest Sales – TouchArcade


Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for April 26th, 2024. We’ve reached the end of another week, and that means we have to mop up the remaining releases before we put it in the books. There are a few interesting titles in the bunch, and we’ve got summaries of all the games worth summarizing. After that, we’ve got another hefty list of new sales to check out. Those Golden Week sales won’t stop popping! The weekend sales outbox is also here, but it’s a lot smaller. Well, let’s get to the getting on with it!

New Releases

Class of Heroes 1 & 2: Complete Edition ($34.99)

Class of Heroes: Anniversary Edition ($19.99)

Class of Heroes 2G: Remaster Edition ($19.99)

Once upon a time, there was a PlayStation that was also portable. It had its own games and everything, no streaming needed. This “PlayStation Portable” played host to quite a few cool RPGs, including a series called Class of Heroes that was kicked off by the developer behind a lot of the Japanese Wizardry spin-offs. These games are basically that developer’s style of Wizardry game but with a more colorful vibe. At any rate, here are the first two games in that series, fully playable on your Switch in remastered form. I’ll be doing a review of both of these soon, but if you like your dungeon crawlers and don’t mind them a bit hard to gnaw on, you’ll probably enjoy these.

Zombies, Aliens and Guns ($5.99)

This is one heck of an ugly aesthetic, but what can you do? Anyway, this is a top-down shooter featuring more than thirty stages of zombie- and alien-blasting action. You get the usual things, like different weapon and some big boss battles, and you can’t fault the variety in stage themes. There are worse ways to spend six bucks, especially if you have a friend in the vicinity to play it with you.

TORIDAMA2: Brave Challenge ($7.99)

Toridama was a fun little surprise when it came out a few years back, and it’s nice to see it get a follow-up. The idea behind the original game and its sequel is that you have to play a bunch of minigames that test your nerves. Hold out as long as you possibly can, push things to the absolute limit, and so on to maximize your score. This time around there are twenty-five minigames to play, and that bizarre sense of humor that made the first game such a kick is here in full effect. If you enjoy games like Wario Ware or Rhythm Heaven, give this a shot.

Horrific Xanatorium ($7.99)

HTML tutorial

Always interesting when KEMCO releases something that isn’t a generic turn-based RPG. This is a visual novel set in a world ravaged by a pandemic that causes all those infected with it to suffer from delusions and hallucinations. The protagonist has been infected and his sister has taken him to a sanitorium to recover. He soon starts to harbor suspicions about the hospital director, and sees monsters lurking around. Surely an effect of the virus… or is it?

Tell Me Your Story ($10.99)

Standard RedDeer Games warning: do not buy this game at full price. The publisher intentionally inflates the normal price to make it look more appealing when it does its regular deep discounts. One should be applied to this game by the time you read this, I suspect. That disclaimer aside, this is a cute story based game about a girl who is going through her grandmother’s things with her, listening to her stories about them. You’ll solve various little puzzles as you play, and none of it is very strenuous. Depending on your mood, this might be of interest to you.

Tales From The Under-Realm: Hazel ($11.99)

Another visual novel from Gamuzumi, which means it was probably very lewd in its original form and has to settle for being slightly lewd here on Switch. A witch named Hazel is thrown into a prison cell with an assassin named Sasha. The other main character in the plot is Tori, a paladin who is interrogating her. You’ll have to make some choices as you work your way through the story, and those choices will determine where the story ends up. Trust an assassin, or trust a holy cop? Your call.

The Bin Bunch

Dracula VS Monsters ($4.99)

Cyberpoly RPG – Dark City ($9.99)

Life Bubble ($7.99)

Finding America: The Pacific Northwest Collector’s Edition ($9.99)


(North American eShop, US Prices)

Let’s pick out a few interesting things from these sales, shall we? Axiom Verge 2 is cheaper than it’s ever been on the eShop, and so is Arcade Paradise. Solid good times with both of those. In the Square Enix end of things, the Voice of Cards games are at new low prices, and so are games like Dragon Quest Treasures and Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song. Do note that this list is curated; most of Square Enix’s library is on sale right now. Have a nice look through and see what grabs you.
