‘Pinball M’, ‘Arcade Archives Solitary Fighter’, Plus More Releases and Sales – TouchArcade

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for December 28th, 2023. We’re almost at the end of the year now, and this is the last Thursday of 2023. We’re not exactly going out with a bang, with only a small number of new releases to look at. Even worse, only a couple of them are outside of the bin. There are also some new sales, but not so many as you might hope for. Well, at least there are the Genre Awards to look forward to today? Let’s look at what we’ve got for the day!

New Releases

Pinball M (Free)

One thing that I recall being a moderate issue for Zen Studios when it took on the Williams pinball license was that some of the art and other content had to be altered to maintain the ESRB rating for the Zen Pinball/Pinball FX hub app. Maybe that’s why we’ve got this release, which offers up the same Pinball FX gameplay in an app that isn’t afraid to go M for Mature. Pinball M comes with Wrath of the Elder Gods: Director’s Cut as a free table, and currently offers four additional tables as DLC. Chucky’s Killer Pinball, Duke Nukem’s Big Shot Pinball, The Thing Pinball, and Dead by Daylight Pinball can be bought for $5.49 each or in one big bundle for $19.99. More tables will be added over time, and I imagine we will see some of those spicier Williams tables here down the line.

Arcade Archives Solitary Fighter ($7.99)

If you were perhaps hoping for the Arcade Archives release to save this tragic bunch of releases, I’m sorry. The final release for the year 2023 is none other than Taito’s Solitary Fighter, previously seen in the Taito Milestones 2 collection. It’s a fighting game, but one that had the misfortune of releasing around the same time as Street Fighter II. Without the benefit of copying some of that game’s better qualities, this is just a decently good-looking game with gameplay that feels ancient. If you’re looking for an oddity, this might scratch your itch. Otherwise, I’d give it a pass.

The Bin Bunch

Anime Girls: Highschool of Dead ($7.99)

Tiny Treasure Hunt ($3.99)

Found It! ($3.99)


(North American eShop, US Prices)

Some last minute WB Games sales along with a few other odds and ends. Is that price low enough for Mortal Kombat 1 yet? Probably not. But that’s your call. Over in the outbox, the Piczle games are finishing up their latest discounts. And again, a few other odds and ends. Check both lists; it won’t take you but a minute.
