SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II’, Plus Today’s Other New Releases and Sales

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for June 8th, 2022. As I mentioned yesterday, I had to go to the fancy hospital for some tests today. I’ll get the results next week. The upshot is that I didn’t have a ton of time for today’s article. Nevertheless, I have the new release summaries prepared along with the usual lists of new and outgoing sales. We’ll be back to normal programming tomorrow. Let’s get to it!

New Releases

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords ($15.00)

SwitchArcade Highlight!

I don’t think it’s a particularly well-hidden secret at this point that with a few modifications, Knights of the Old Republic II is actually an even better game than the considerably more popular first installment. The biggest issue the game had back in the day was that it wasn’t quite finished when it went out the door, and that is indeed the core experience we have here on Switch… for now. A free DLC will be coming that adds in some mods that go a long way towards making it feel more well-rounded, but even in its basic form there is plenty to enjoy here. Only fifteen bucks, too. I’ll have a review of this one soon.

My Lovely Wife ($14.99)

SwitchArcade Highlight!

Remember My Lovely Daughter? An odd game, that one. But it was a very interesting one, and so too is My Lovely Wife. You play as a widower who is suddenly contacted by his deceased wife with instructions on certain rituals that can bring her back. The key is in succubi, who if properly sacrificed can serve as a vessel for your wife’s soul. Summon a succubus, court them, and then… well, the choice is yours, I suppose. You can betray them or not. There are over twenty succubi to meet, leading to more than forty different endings. Can you destroy the lives of others just to bring back your own loved one? A unique dating simulation of sorts, and one that is worth checking out.

Spacewing War ($6.99)

Here’s another side-scrolling shooter, this one with a Game Boy look to its visuals. Aliens have invaded and you have to send them packing in seven stages of shooting action with a few puzzles mixed in. There’s a good variety of shot types, lots of different color palettes to choose from, and some interesting secrets to find. Seems very meat-and-potatoes in most respects, but that’s not always a bad thing.


(North American eShop, US Prices)

Personally, there isn’t anything that is catching my eye in the list of new sales. Some good games in there, but a lot of games we see regularly, you know? Over in the outbox, Game Mill and Arc System Works are wrapping up their latest sales, along with some titles from Circle Entertainment and a few other odds and ends like Xeno Crisis. Scan your little peepers over those lists and see if there’s anything you want.
