All Articles: Xeodrifter

Bayonetta 1 + 2, Fe, Xeodrifter, more coming to Nintendo eShop this week

Nintendo and its third-party publishing partners will add 17 new Switch games to the Nintendo eShop over the next seven days. While the sheer quantity is impressive, the list also includes some of this Winter’s most highly-anticipated games.

Nintendo themselves lead the way with the Switch re-release of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2. Starting this Friday, players will be able to take Platinum’s pair of action games on the go for the first time. Also available to download tomorrow is Fe, a “wordless platformer” from Zoink and Electronic Arts.

Elsewhere on the Switch storefront, Atooi will make a return to the platform with the launch of Xeodrifter, a retro-styled side-scroller that was originally released for the 3DS in 2014. And Bloober Team will bring the horrific Layers of Fear: Legacy to the Switch on Wednesday. Layers of Fear: Legacy is being touted as the definitive version of the game with its inclusion of the Inheritance expansion, touchscreen controls, and HD Rumble support.

You can learn more about all of this week’s additions to the Nintendo eShop after the break. (more…)

Atooi will bring Xeodrifter to the Switch next week

Atooi has announced that their retro-styled “MetroidVania,” Xeodrifter, will be available to download for the Nintendo Switch beginning next week. According to the new trailer embedded above, Xeodrifter will make its eShop debut on February 15.

Xeodrifter is the story of an interstellar drifter traveling the stars on a simple mission of exploration. We join our nomad as he embarks on the investigation of a small cluster of four planets in the omega sector, after a collision with a rogue asteroid damaged his warp core.

Blast your way through alien landscapes, seek out valuable secrets, and defeat ancient guardians to unlock powers from a legendary supreme culture in this exciting journey of mystery and adventure.

Jools Watsham, Atooi’s President, previously said that his development team would release “at least” three games on the Switch in 2018. Hopefully, we’ll hear more about the other two soon.

Nintendo Download: Xeodrifter, Badland: Game of the Year Edition, more


Nintendo update the Nintendo eShop today with a trio of new games for the Wii U and another three for the 3DS. Though one can be played on both systems with a single purchase.

Yes, Nintendo is offering another Cross-Buy promotion with Rengeade Kid’s Xeodrifter. The Metroidvania-style Wii U game will offer players “mystery and adventure” as they “blast through alien landscapes, seek out valuable secrets, and defeat ancient guardians.” As a Cross-Buy title, purchasing Xeodrifter on the Wii U will also make the game available to download on the 3DS, and vice versa.

Also available this week is Badland: Game of the Year Edition, a high definition upgrade of the popular mobile game. The Game of the Year Edition of the side-scroller comes with “more than 15 hours of single-player levels” and a four-player local multiplayer mode.

More information on these titles, and a small handful of additional Wii U and 3DS games, can be found after the break. (more…)

Do you object to hearing about this week’s Nintendo Download? I wouldn’t, because Capcom has added the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy collection to the 3DS eShop. The wild courtroom antics of Phoenix Wright will be joined on the 3DS eShop by Xeodrifter, a Metroidvania-style game from Moon Chronicles developer Renegade Kid.

In other eShop release news this week, Activision is opening up their vault once again and dropping a ton of older 3DS and Wii U games onto Nintendo’s digital storefront. Angry Birds Trilogy (3DS and Wii U), Angry Birds Star Wars (3DS and Wii U), Wipeout 2 (3DS), and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (3DS) are all available to download now.
