SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Democracy 4’, ‘Ghost Teen Escape from Limbo’, Plus Today’s New and Expiring Sales

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for June 5th, 2024. It’s an exceptionally quiet Wednesday today, which I suppose isn’t the worst thing after the last couple of days were so full of reviews. And hey, tomorrow will have a full plate as usual. As for today, we’ve got a pair of new releases to take a look at, and the usual lists of new and expiring sales. That’s it. Let’s go and take a look at what we have!

Select New Releases

Democracy 4: Console Edition ($26.99)

You know, it’s not hard to look around at the state of the world these days and think that one could do better than the people in charge. Well, here’s your chance to test that theory. You take the role of a president or prime minister and have to manage a democratic country all while trying to maintain enough popularity to get re-elected. This is a rather well-liked game over on Steam, but this Switch version obviously won’t have the benefit of the robust modding community the computer version has around it. Will people still get into the vanilla experience? Probably.

Ghost Teen Escape from Limbo ($4.99)

Here’s our five-dollar Switch platformer entry for today, in case you were searching for one. This has fifty stages to play through, and the main gimmick is that you have ghost powers you can use to float and pass through obstacles. Might be what you’re after today. It’s like how every now and then I get a craving for a cinnamon bun.


(North American eShop, US Prices)

Some sales on WB Games, including a new low price for Mortal Kombat 1. Freedom Planet 2 has a nice little discount, and Activision is also running a bunch of sales. The outbox is probably more pressing. The third wave of Arcade Archives 10th anniversary sales is wrapping up, and I will say the usual thing about them being highly unlikely to go on sale again any time soon if at all. The sale on the Shantae games is also coming to a close, alongside a number of other indie games. Check both lists!

I hope you all have a fantastic Wednesday, and as always, thanks for reading!
