The story focuses on a knight protector named Alushe and her two childhood friends – Liliana, a kind-hearted priestess, and Ruhenheid, a holy knight of the Lourdes Order. While guarding Liliana, Alushe is ambushed and killed only to later awaken as an artificial half-demon at the hands of the New Curia, a religious organization with dark ties. In the company of a variety of unlikely allies with their own pasts and agendas, Alushe’s strong desire to save Liliana gives her the strength to scatter the shadows shrouding the world and motivation to uncover the shocking truth behind the mysterious Queen of the Moon.

Looking for a Switch game to pick up that is out this week and isn’t GoNNER? Well you might be in luck.
For the low sum of $4.99, if you live in North America (or just have a NA My Nintendo account that you have cash for), you can add Physical Contact: SPEED to your ever growing list of Switch games tomorrow. But be warned this game by Collavier Corporation has one heck of a weirdly good trailer, which can be seen right here, followed by a quick overview:
It is a game series where two people can play against one device. If you play with your body in close contact, the match will be more fun. Any two partners, including parents, friends, lover, etc, are suitable. Because it is simple and rules that everyone knows, you can start the game immediately on the spot. If you use the handicap function you can match the level of the two people. Because the match-up time is short, I can play anytime and anywhere when I feel like it. Of course there is also a 1P play mode for one’s time.
So will you be picking it up tomorrow? Let us know!
Later on this year, Nicalis will be brining both The End is Nigh and Blade Strangers to the Nintendo Switch and having shared images of the game’s box art on Twitter, for those of you who are yet to see them, you can see them here:

Nothing has been said as to why this is, but it is the reason we are given. So sorry guys, but you will have to wait a little bit longer.
