A demo is available through the Nintendo eShop and until 15 September the product is discounted by 25%: it can therefore be purchased at a price of 12.89 euros, instead of 17.19 euros.
Garden Story will arrive in 2021 and will "transport" players to a picturesque world where they will have to rebuild the Grove community.
As Grove's new guardian, it's your turn to unite a divided community. Cross a colorful island to keep it from rotting and rebuild your home. You are not alone: you will find friends ready to give you a hand!
Subnautica and its sequel Subnautica: Below Zero will land on the Nintendo console in 2021 allowing you to explore the depths of a vast alien world by collecting resources, creating underwater structures and outsmarting native creatures to uncover the mysteries of the planet they find themselves on.
Bear and Breakfast is a relaxing management adventure in which players play as Hank, a placid bear who wants to turn an abandoned shack into a successful Bed and Breakfast. But as customers multiply, so do the mysteries of the forest, and soon Hank finds himself facing them.
Bear and Breakfast will be available in 2021, as a time exclusive.
Card Shark, developed by Nerial and Devolver Digital, will be an elegant adventure set in 18th century France in which players cheat their way through cards. As they move from one table to the other, they will have to build a repertoire of tricks and manage their profits wisely, because the stakes will get higher and higher.
Torchlight III, the sequel to the acclaimed franchise will debut in the fall and will include the exclusive companion Red Fairy and the ability to build your own forts.
In this sequel, players head to the Frontier in search of even more glory and loot. A century has passed since the events of the previous chapter and the Ember Empire is in decline. Novastraia is once again threatened by an invasion and it's up to the players to defend it from the evil Netherim and their allies. Beloved companions return with new abilities and now players can also build their forts.
