This new mode features eight kid friendly songs and also includes a simplified choreography that was developed alongside child development experts. The developers targeted kids in the three to six age range, though I'm sure it'll be a blast for children of all ages.

A Slew of Indie Titles Coming to the Switch This YearJason Love

Many of the indie titles that Nintendo showed off yesterday during their "Nindies Summer Showcase" will be playable at the event tonight, and a selection of them will also be made available during PAX West at the Nindies Arcade on the third floor in room 3B of the convention center. The Nindies Arcade will be open from noon-9 p.m. PT on Sept. 1 to Sept. 3, and noon-6 p.m. PT on Sept. 4.

Depending on which side of the pitch you find yourself, you'll be driving that big old ball towards the opposing team's goal in a Mario, Luigi, or Samus-themed car. If you're on the Orange side, you can use the "Mario NSR" or "Samus Gunship" cars, and on the Blue side you'll get "Luigi NSR" or a Varia Suit Samus car. I suspect everyone will want to be on the Orange team with that gunship car. There will also be some special Mario/Luigi hats that can be used with any car, and some special boosts (e.g., the Gunship's "Wave Beam") that are specific to the Nintendo cars. These new cars will be absolutely free for Switch owners, though you'll have to unlock them by meeting some in-game requirements that are (for now) unknown.

Unlike the other prisons in the game, the new Transport Prisons (airplane, boat, and train) have a time limit, a fixed number of resources to use when devising your escape, and everywhere outside of your cell is a no-go. Think you and your friends can manage to work together to escape in time, or will you just nick things from one another and shank each other in the back?

This feature has been in development for a little while and it seems the team over at Mojang has finally gotten it nailed down. During a recent livestream, the devs showed off this functionality in action and promised that it should be arriving soon.

The Escapists series began in 2014 as a Steam early access game before being completed a year later in 2015 and then made its way to consoles soon after, giving fans the underdog story—the one where the little indie game worked through early access, gained critical recognition, and eventually got a promising sequel—that we all love. Although the original Escapists was released without any multiplayer, the sequel not only features a versus mode, but both online and local drop-in/ drop-out co-op that allows for up to 4 players, which is an incredibly exciting improvement for any game series.

The streets of London are overrun with the living dead and its up to four survivors - Teller, Mick ‘The Brick’, Rei, and Eddie - to take out as many of them as possible. While the action is very side-scrolling brawler focused, nDreams has described the combat as "free-form" so you can chain moves together. The other big feature here is that the title supports VR players for both the PC (Rift and Vive) and PlayStation 4 versions (PSVR), as well as combo co-op. So, if you and your buddy are playing on the couch together, you could join another friend who's using the PSVR. The player wearing the VR headset is able to get a unique view of the action and can move the camera around to get a better look at what's ahead or crawling up behind you.

The songs included in Spotlight Season 2's season pass will be the new ones released for the game's Rivals Mode challenge. For those of you unfamiliar with this challenge mode, each week three tracks are selected as Spotlight Songs: two tracks players already own and one newly released DLC track, tied together with a theme. Over a series of eight weeks, eight new DLC songs will be released. These can be purchased a la carte for $2, or in one fell swoop with the Spotlight Pass for $13.49. That means a 15% (or $2.50) discount, with the downside being that the songs won't be known until the week of their release.

You'll be free to play as much of the game you want and any/all progress will be saved so if you decide to pick up the title for real, you won't have to start over. That progress will also carry over in to the new Diablo III: Eternal Collection, if you decide to go that route instead. The Eternal Collection includes all of Diablo III, the Reaper of Souls expansion, and the recently added Necromancer class (which Mike and I checked out on the PC this past Monday). That edition is on sale for 35% off (or $38.99) until Monday night as well.

Overcooked is absolutely one of those games that I can easily recommend buying and playing again even if you've already played it on some other system. The fact that you can pick up your Switch and take it with you to share the co-op joy out in the world only sweetens the deal. It's chaotic and crazy and fun and absolutely worth the $19.99.
