Next Order’, ‘Piczle Lines 2’, Plus Today’s Other New Releases and Sales – TouchArcade

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for February 22nd, 2023. In today’s article, we’ve got a handful of new releases to check out. Digimon World: Next Order is probably the biggest of the bunch, but we’ve also got Piczle Lines 2: Into the Puzzleverse, Redemption Reapers, and a few others to go through. After that, it’s the usual lists of new and outgoing sales. Let’s get to business!

New Releases

Digimon World: Next Order ($59.99)

This is a port of a PlayStation 4 port of a PlayStation Vita game that originally released back in 2016. The reviews of previous versions were not particularly glowing, but they weren’t awful either. Kind of in that zone where if you like the license and the genre, you’ll probably have an okay time. It’s an RPG with real-time combat where you can pause to issue orders to your monsters. If you already bought this on PlayStation 4 there really isn’t much reason to double dip, but Digimon fans who missed it before should give it a closer look.

Piczle Lines 2: Into the Puzzleverse ($14.99)

First of all, I greatly approve of that title. Nice job. Anyway, this offers more Piczle Lines fun for those who are hungry for it. You get hundreds upon hundreds of puzzles to solve, a wacky story mode, some fun secrets, and more. A great pick-up for fans of logic puzzles, as we’ve come to expect from the folks at Score Studios.

Redemption Reapers ($49.99)

I really liked Ender Lilies a lot, so if you tell me you have a new game from the same developer, you’ve got my attention. When you go on to say it is in a completely different genre, I am slightly more hesitant but still interested. This is a turn-based strategy RPG, and it sure looks like one of those. Can it do anything to stand out in a fairly crowded genre? I’ll be doing a full review as soon s I can to let you know how I feel about it.

Twice Reborn: A Vampire Visual Novel ($14.99)

Here’s a visual novel from the folks at eastasiasoft where you play as a newly-turned vampire who has been given a serious responsibility in the community. Will you embrace your new life or try to find a way to recover your humanity? Depending on your choices, the characters will act differently and you’ll end up at one of twenty endings. Are vampires hot right now? Seems to come and go in waves.

Intruders: Hide and Seek ($19.99)

You’re a little kid and your family is staying at a big vacation house. Some intruders break in and take your parents hostage. Your little sister is hiding, and everything is riding on you to save the day. If you’re caught, it’s all over. You’ll have to hide and look around the house to see if you can find a way to save your parents. This came out a few years ago on PlayStation VR where it met a middling reception. I can’t imagine it’s better without the VR gimmick, but I suppose if you’re in love with the premise there isn’t much I can do to stop you.

Animal Lover ($9.99)

Five guys from various points in time have been cursed to turn into animals, and it’s up to Lucy to help them out in this visual novel. Perhaps there will be smooching on the way? Seems likely. But it depends on how you make your choices. The guys all have some issues beyond the obvious to deal with, and you can help them become better people throughout the course of the story. There are multiple endings based on what you do, with seven different outcomes to find. Reviews over on Steam generally seem positive, so that’s encouraging.

Seven Doors ($4.99)

A short and not-so-sweet first-person adventure game where you have to solve puzzles and do other things like stealth sequences to move through all seven doors and the rooms connected to them. Just a very mediocre game with some badly conceived puzzles and a generic look and feel.

Hike Isle ($4.99)

Another one of these. They understand the look but not the soul. But if you feel like taking a virtual hike in a less than convincing environment, here you go.


(North American eShop, US Prices)

Wow, what a list. Where are all the sales at? Oh well. Cosmo Dreamer is a nice shooter. The Crysis ports are good. Who doesn’t like Death Road to Canada? Gem Wizards Tactics, pretty solid. The outbox is a lot bigger and has some decent games in it, but nothing that is really shouting out at me. Have a look at both lists and see if anything hits you better than it hit me.
