Fight Crab

  • Developer: Calappa Games
  • Publisher: Mastiff
  • Release date: September 15

Fight Crab is an over-the-top physics-based, 3D action battle game that combines giant crustaceans, insane weaponry, and intense claw-to-claw combat into one absurdly hilarious, must-play game.

You are a crab. Embark on a world tour of devastation, flipping over as many crabs as possible in a quest to be crowned lord of the crustaceans!

Dog Duty

  • Single-player Action/Strategy
  • Developer: Zanardi and Liza
  • Publisher: Soedesco
  • Release date: September 17

Control a squad of misfits as they go up against some evil bigwig Octopus Commander and his army who are threatening world-peace. In this fun, fast-paced Real Time Tactics game, you go into combat and use guerrilla warfare to eliminate all octo-scum. Fight on top of your moving vehicle as you go from island to island to liberate outposts and defeat wicked bosses in their crazy octo-machines. Wreck those squids up, but beware, they’re well-armed.


  • Single-player adventure/arcade
  • Publisher: SFK
  • Release date: September 17

Darkness looms over a bright and peaceful town as street lights begin to go out one by one.
To bring back the light, a girl heads to the Tower from which the light came.

Hidden in the Tower was a glowing butterfly.
Thinking its light could help the town, the girl takes the butterfly with her.
…But what she found was the town entirely covered in darkness.
The girl heads to the Tower once again to find a way to save the town.

Flying Soldiers

  • Single-player puzzle/strategy
  • Developer: Wild Sphere
  • Publisher: Wild Sphere
  • Release date: September 17

Get ready to command an odd squad of fun birds on your Nintendo Switch and devise a plan to bring them safe and sound to the end of the battlefield.

Not everything is as it seems in this outlandish puzzle game, because these “flying soldiers” can hardly glide a few inches and they don’t exactly have the abilities to go into battle. So, it’s no surprise that, with squads made up of these “characters”, they wouldn’t be able to get themselves out of the mess they’re in. Their only hope lies in your tactical skills to help them advance.

  1. I pre-ordered physical Mario 3D, if anything it’s going to be worth something in the end LOL. It’s limited availability on physical copies and most pre-ordered Switch game, I think after ACH. Currently, a shortage going on LOL, if I even see mine.
