SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Book Quest’, ‘Cleo – A Pirate’s Tale’, Plus Today’s Other Releases, News, and Sales

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for August 10th, 2022. In today’s article, we’ve got a little news about an update to a game I really like, a few new releases to summarize, and some sales to look at. A bit of a quiet one, but don’t forget about that Splatoon 3 Nintendo Direct. It will likely have happened by the time you read this, so make sure you give it a view if you’re interested in that game. Let’s get to business!


‘Little Noah: Scion of Paradise’ DLC Pack 1 Available Now

Yes, this is an excuse to talk about a game I really enjoyed that I feel like people are missing out on. Little Noah: Scion of Paradise has received its first of two planned DLC packs. You can buy it individually, pick up a discounted pack that covers you for this one and the upcoming second one, or if you don’t have the game yet, buy an all-in-one deal. As for this pack, it includes two new Avatars for Noah: the Gourmet Guild Princess and the White Mage. There are also three new Lilliputs you’ll come across in the ruins and five new accessories to uncover. If you enjoy roguelite action games, use this as a reason to check this great one out.

New Releases

Book Quest ($6.99)

You know how it goes: you’re just having a normal day when someone steals your family’s magic book and the ghost of your grandfather dispatches you to retrieve it. This is a fairly run-of-the-mill action-adventure game, with real-time combat, weapons and gear to find, puzzles to solve, minigames to play, and a story to be resolved. Seven bucks is pretty affordable as this kind of thing goes, but I would need to put some time into it to tell you whether or not it’s worth diving into.

Cleo – A Pirate’s Tale ($14.99)

Here is an excellent pirate-themed point-and-click style adventure game that was extremely well-received on other platforms. A girl named Cleo is bored of her normal life and yearns for adventures, like the kind of tales inspired by her hero, the legendary pirate Captain Cabeca. You know what they say about being careful what you wish for. She soon finds herself on a dangerous quest to find The Treasure of Eternal Memory, and her life will never be the same again. In addition to the usual adventure game stuff, you’ll also find a frequently-occurring minigame called Kraken Fodder that seems to be all the rage. If you enjoy the genre, be sure to give this game a look.

Lost in Play ($19.99)

This point-and-click style adventure game has a lot of pop to its visuals. A brother and sister go on an imagination-powered journey in order to return home. Solve puzzles, play minigames, and meet a cast of strange characters as you make your way across the many bizarre locations the game has to offer. I haven’t had a chance to try this one yet, but it looks promising.


(North American eShop, US Prices)

Yeah, not a whole lot going on today. The most exciting new sale is Mario + Rabbids, and that’s not even the lowest price we’ve seen this frequently-discounted title go for. All of its DLC is on sale as well. In the outbox, we’ve got finishing sales from Kemco, Game Mill, Team 17, and a few others. Give those lists a look just in case.
