‘F-Zero 99’ Update, ‘Gothic II Complete Classic’, Plus Today’s Releases and Sales – TouchArcade

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for November 29th, 2023. It’s Wednesday, and unlike last Wednesday it’s not a particularly busy one. Well, post-Black Friday and all that. There are a couple of new releases to look at, and they’re both worth considering depending on your tastes. We’ve got a little bit of news, and that’s alright. I was hoping to have some reviews for you, but there just wasn’t time to get them done properly today so they will have to wait. And yes, we’ve got the usual lists of new and outgoing sales for you to look over. Let’s get to work!


‘F-Zero 99’ Adds New Classic Mode and More

When the last update to F-Zero 99 was released, Nintendo mentioned that for the time being it was finished adding new tracks to the game. Some might have thought that was the end of any major additions to F-Zero 99, but today’s update shows it’s still very much active. A new Classic mode has been added to the game that calls back to the Super NES original with 20-person races, a 4:3 display, and the removal of mechanics like spinning and the special road above the track. Cool. There are also new customization options for your Pilot Card, and a new Lucky Ranks system where you can earn some in-game rewards. Some other tweaks and bug fixes have been made, too.

New Releases

Gothic II Complete Classic ($29.99)

Look, you’re either into Piranha Bytes’ slightly janky open world RPGs, or you’re not. I’m personally a fan of them, so I’m happy to see more of the developer’s classics come to Switch. Not long ago we had the first Gothic game, and now here comes the second. I’m going to be doing a review of this one, but what I will say is that if you have tried any of Piranha Bytes’ other games, then you already know how you’ll feel about this one. If you haven’t? Well, I guess you’ll have to wait for that review.

The Traveler’s Path ($4.99)

A rather simple take on a classic puzzle type. The traveler wants to get from point A to point B on each of the fifty stages, and you need to make the path for them to do so. Or rather, you need to rearrange the path. It’s broken into tiles, and you need to rotate and swap those tiles to make the path for the traveler to walk on. Nothing new conceptually, but if you like this kind of puzzle then there’s nothing to object to here.


(North American eShop, US Prices)

Look, there just isn’t much left to go on sale, that’s going to anyway. What can you do? There are a few things in the inbox we don’t see on sale often, particularly those last three, but this is mostly the usual suspects. The outbox is pretty big today, with quite a few indies wrapping up their discounts. Give both lists a quick look if you’ve got a minute.

That’s all for today, friends. We’ll be back tomorrow with the big list of Thursday new releases, plus whatever big news and sales come our way in the next twenty-four hours. We’re just about through November, and it’s been a rough month for me. I’m looking forward to a better month next time, but I suppose I shouldn’t count my chickens before they hatch. I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday, and as always, thanks for reading!
