BurgerTime Party! features new modes and items will have modern chefs thinking ‘outside of the bun’ to solve bite-sized puzzles like crumbling floors, oil spills, and freezing ladders, all the while evading edible enemies both old and new.
Local multiplayer lets 2-4 friends cooperate as cooks or compete as cuisine across 100+ stages that will keep the fun from getting stale long past Mr. Hot Dog’s expiration date. Now, let’s get cooking!
Developed by G-MODE and published in Europe by Marvelous Europe Limited, BurgerTime Party! is in development for an Autumn 2019 release on Nintendo Switch.

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin
This enthralling title from Edelweiss, the two-man team behind acclaimed indie darling Astebreed (2014 in NA and EU), Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin combines side-scrolling action with deep crafting and farming simulation.
Players take on the role of Sakuna, a spoiled harvest goddess banished to a dangerous island with a group of outcast humans. As she explores the beautiful, forbidding environments of the island, she will also find a home in a mountain village, proving herself worthy of her title by harvesting rice and bettering the lives of humans.
In addition to being a fresh take on Japanese mythology and a love letter to action games, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is an ode to rice and an engrossing simulation of the craft behind agriculture.
Created by Edelweiss and published in Europe by Marvelous Europe Limited, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is currently in development for Nintendo Switch.
