Top Upcoming Nintendo Switch Video Games of 2019

Tunche
  • Developer: Leap Game Studios
  • Publisher: Leap Game Studios
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, NS
  • Release: 2019

Tunche is a 2D beat ‘em up video game that sports hand-drawn art developed by Leap Game Studios. The developers are working on a game that takes inspiration from the Peruvian legend known also as Tunche which is a spirit that hunts down its prey in the jungle.

Within the game, players will be able to choose one of four characters as they battle enemy hostiles throughout the jungle. Likewise, the game supports cooperative gameplay so it can make a perfect co-op experience especially due to its roguelike elements.

Players will find that they can increase their move sets as they progress throughout the game, however, a loss will result in players starting all the way over again. It doesn’t seem to sport a very long journey for players to go through so if you’re not fond of Roguelikes then you may still want to give this title a try. Currently, the developers are aiming to launch the game early 2019.

This was another title that only received a small trailer during Nintendo’s E3 Direct video uploaded so we’re left with a few questions regarding what to expect when the title eventually hits store shelves in 2019. However, the bright colorful visuals is definitely something to take note of.
