Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon - 17th March

A great surprise for fans of the series when the game was recently revealed, Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon launches on Switch very soon indeed.

As the title implies, this game will explore the character of Bayonetta before she became the Umbra Witch we all know and love today.

The game is an action-strategy title developed by Mojang Studios that'll have you setting off on a new quest to save the Overworld from the ravenous piglins. You'll need to plan your strategy and then face off against the piglins in battle, taking on their bases during the day and defending your allies after dusk. "Lush biomes filled with treasures and perils" are promised in this one – now it's just down to you to go and save the world.

Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp - 24th April

After a year of waiting, the Switch revival of Advance Wars is just around the corner.

If you've never experienced it before, players command an army in strategic, turn-based combat as a tactical adviser for the Orange Star Army. Your expertise is needed as you move land, air, and naval units across the battlefield, taking down enemy squads and capturing towns and bases to secure victory and keep the peace.
