Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory

One of my favourite games shown in today’s Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase is Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory. This musical experience from Square Enix is set in the world of Kingdom Hearts. Players must match rhythm with good timing and cast powerful magic spells to attack enemies. The game includes a variety of modes such as Memory Drive, which involves matching past scenes from memory, and Boss Battle, in which players square off against fearsome bosses with special attacks.

In addition to local and online multiplayer battle modes, a new mode exclusive to the Switch version of the game called Free-for-all features local multiplayer action for up to eight players. Additionally, players will get the chance to experience a chapter of Kingdom Hearts from the series’ popular character Kairi’s perspective. Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory launches on Switch November 13, 2020.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition

A grand adventure awaits in this remastered version of the classic co-op action RPG. This new version of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles features new high-level dungeons and weapons, updated graphics and much more.

Team up online with friends, or with other players in a party matchmaking system, to battle foes and discover new adventures. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition launches today, August 27,2020 on Nintendo Switch.

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2

Two legendary puzzle games reunite for the ultimate puzzle match in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2! Players will experience a brand-new hilarious story filled with an eclectic cast of characters in Adventure mode. And, develop new strategies for play utilizing special item cards in Skill Battle. Furthermore, this latest entry includes all of the modes from the original game, including the popular Versus mode, which lets players play Puyo Puyo against Tetris, and the playful Party Mode with special items and challenges.

Additionally, the new Skill Battle mode introduces character-based skills and item cards that can be equipped to power up the team and quickly turn the tables on opponents! Also, today’s Nintendo Direct Mini showcased an expanded Online Mode that brings the ability to spectate matches, in which up to four players can compete against each other in worldwide battles for online rankings. Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 launches December 8, 2020 on Nintendo Switch.


From the creators of Rock Band comes Fuser, a non-stop digital music festival in which players control the music. Players combine elements of songs from some of the world’s most popular artists to create amazing mixes. Or, partner with friends on epic collaborations.
