Retro Platformer, Swords & Bones, Confirmed To Be Coming to Nintendo Switch

Today, developer SEEP and publisher RedDeerGames have announced that their retro platformer, Swords & Bones, will be coming to Nintendo Switch in the future.

Unfortunately, no concrete release date has been given at this time. We did, however, get a new announcement trailer, which you can check out down below:

Originally released on PC back in March last year, Swords & Bones is clearly a nostalgia play for those of you who’re hankering for a 16-bit 2D action-adventure experience with some light RPG elements thrown in for good measure.

Boasting classic pixel-art, a multitude of pesky monsters and bosses, a bunch of magic spells, two potential endings, and a chirpy chiptune soundtrack, Swords & Bones is a throwback experience akin to Shovel Knight and The Messenger.

For more information about Swords & Bones, here’s a general overview courtesy of SEEP:

James Milner on Liverpool’s ‘big three points’ after the 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace

James Milner came onto the pitch immediately after Fabinho had put Liverpool 3-1 ahead and was delighted to help the team beat Crystal Palace.

It looked as though our No.7 could be gracing the Selhurst Park pitch with his first touch being the penalty that was awarded to the Reds after the clash between Diogo Jota and Vicente Guaita.

However; his penalty expertise were not required, so his main role was to ensure that all three points came back with us to Merseyside and it was very much mission accomplished.

Stylish Animated Horror, Subway Midnight, Chugs Its Way to Consoles Later This Year

During Playism‘s annual Japanese livestream earlier today, developer Bubby Darkstar’s stylish animated horror experience, Subway Midnight, was announced to be coming to consoles later in 2022. Unfortunately, the companies haven’t officially confirmed what specific consoles the game will launch on.

To celebrate the news, the indie publisher dropped a freshly-cut trailer to showcase what players can expect from the spooky locomotive-centric title. Behold said footage down below:

Having originally released on PC back in 2021 to a ‘Very Positive’ Steam user review score, Subway Midnight is a unique horror title for a number of reasons. Firstly, its visual style constantly changes so prepare to get spooked in a variety of different color palettes and styles.

Next, the narrative tells a poignant story of anxiety and trauma with a rare dose of irreverent humor much akin to something like Double Fine’s excellent Psychonauts 2. Granted, Subway Midnight is more of a … Read the rest

‘Robbed’ – Some Liverpool fans surprised by 22-year-old’s first-XI exclusion ahead of Palace clash

Several Liverpool supporters were left a little surprised on Twitter by Ibrahima Konate’s exclusion from the first-XI ahead of their side’s impending meeting with Crystal Palace.

Following what several noted to be a poor first-half performance from Joel Matip in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg at the Emirates Stadium, the expectation for some would be that Jurgen Klopp would turn to the Frenchman for the trip to London.

The German, however, had other intentions in mind, opting for the centre-back partnership of the Cameroonian and Virgil van Dijk that has proved mightily effective throughout much of the season.

Barcelona could fine Ousmane Dembele for ‘faking illness’

Ousmane Dembele’s Barcelona career is essentially over. In midweek, club Sporting Director Mateu Alemany told the Frenchman that “he has to leave” owing to him not extending his contract.

He has reportedly refused to make a move in the summer, arguing that he is “not a man who cheats,” however Alemany will try to fix a move before the 31st of January.

According to an official press release by Barcelona via Twitter, Dembele was a no-show in training today, because of a supposed stomach illness. However, a report by AS states that the Garnet and Blue are likely to hand him a fine for missing training. Noone at the club believes his reasoning, and could thus be served with a penalty.

Dembele has been at Barcelona since the summer of 2017. He joined the club from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of €120 million. He has struggled to hit the … Read the rest

Herta Still Has Eyes on Formula 1 Move Despite Andretti’s Alfa Buy-In Falling Through

Colton Herta still has eyes on racing in Formula 1 in the future despite a door closing on him during the off-season when Michael Andretti’s attempt to buy into Alfa Romeo Formula 1 Team ORLEN failed to materialise.

While talks between Alfa Romeo and Andretti were ongoing, rumours were afoot that Herta would be a leading contender to switch to the Formula 1 team, perhaps even as early as 2022, but when talks broke down, those rumours ended.

However, the twenty-one-year-old, who races for Andretti Autosport in the NTT IndyCar Series, says Formula 1 has always been in his sights, but it needs to be the right time for him to make the move, and he knows the older he gets the less likely it will happen.

“You know, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to do Formula 1,” Herta is quoted as saying by … Read the rest
