Slime-San: Superslime Edition

One of the best platformers currently available on the Switch eShop is Slime-San, the weird 2D sidescroller that takes place inside a giant carnivorous worm. The striking color palette, square screen design, and twitch platformer controls make it a nice alternative to contemporaries like Super Meat Boy and Celeste, and the sizable amount of content on offer is a huge bonus. A few months ago, the game received a big expansion that added another campaign and various other extras, and now a second expansion has gone live with even more to offer.

The new update—which is free, we might add—upgrades Slime-San to its “Superslime Edition” while also adding a third campaign called Sheeple’s Sequel. There’s a staggering amount being added for free, so be sure to check it out. Here’s the full patch notes:
