SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Bubble Bobble’, ‘Path of Ra’, Plus Today’s Other New Releases and the Latest Sales

SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Bubble Bobble’, ‘Path of Ra’, Plus Today’s Other New Releases and the Latest Sales

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for December 29th, 2022. Not much left in the year now, and the eShop reflects that. While it is a Thursday, we only have five new releases to look at, and three of them are extremely dubious. We’ve also got the list of new sales and the expiring sales for you to consider. Another light one today, but hey, Shaun needs some rest time too. Let’s go!

New Releases

Arcade Archives Bubble Bobble ($7.99)

Oh yes, that’s the good stuff. Up until now, if you wanted to play the arcade version of Bubble Bobble on your Switch, you had to do it through Bubble Bobble 4 Friends. A fun game, but if you just want to play the original that is a stiff price to cough up. Well, now you can drop eight bucks and have it via Arcade Archives. This game doesn’t need much introduction, so all I need to tell you is that Hamster did their usual fine job with it. Off with you, now. Go buy.

Path of Ra ($13.00)

This is a puzzle game of sorts where you need to rearrange the pieces of the hieroglyphs to make a path forward for the Pharaoh. We’ve seen games like this before, but not so many that another one is unwelcome. Reviews on other platforms, including mobile, seem to be pretty good. Note that you can pick this up on your mobile device for a considerably cheaper price, provided you don’t mind playing on that platform.

Infected Run to Survive: Zombie Apocalypse Survival Story Shooter Dead Cry ($4.99)

Farming Real Simulation Tractor, Combine Trucks Farmer Land Game ($4.99)

Monster Impossible Truck No Limit Adventure Drive Simulator Sport 3D ($4.99)

I could do three separate descriptions for these, but there really isn’t much point. VG Games may or may not be Midnight Works or Cooking & Publishing or Piotr Skalski or Benjamin Kistler or Benoit Vanesse or any of the other crap merchants that stink up the eShop with low-effort garbage like this, but I suppose it doesn’t matter in the end who is taking a dump on your face, only that they are. So here you go, three freshly-pinched turds to end the year with. Bon appetit.

Sales

(North American eShop, US Prices)

Not a whole lot to get fussed about in the sales today, either. Maybe Moonlighter or Children of Morta if you don’t have them already? Over in the outbox, sales from Activision and Square Enix are wrapping up. Time to make some hard choices about where to spend that holiday money, everyone.
