Select highlights

The highlight of this week is the Min Min playable character set from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, available in the Challenger Pack 6 or as part of the Fighters Pass Vol. 2. Min Min is the 81st playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with both packs also including the Spring Stadium stage as well as 18 music tracks from ARMS.

Also releasing this week is Wan Nyan Doubutsu Byouin: Pet wo Tasukeru Daiji na Oshigoto which sees you begin work as a vet at an animal hospital with a newly added “medical examination mode” to the Switch version which allows you to check for the animals injury or illness. A number of mini-games are included and you can spend your salary on accessories on your days off! A demo is also availble.

Available for preload this week is Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 from Inti Creates which includes seven playable characters, a brand new story supervised by IGA, local co-op play, and more. Other preloads include the 2D fantasy RPG Miden Tower, the shoot ’em up Rigid Force Redux, the visual novel Hakuoki Shinkai Ginsei no Shou, and more.

There are three demos available this week with the otome visual novel game Dangerous Relationship, the super cute Gesshi~zu Mori no Chiisana Nakama-tachi, and the visual novel E School Life. All three are also available to preload (only the first title supports English however).
