'Gekisou!  Benza Race -Toilet Shooting Star-', Plus Today's Other Releases and Sales – TouchArcade

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for May 15th, 2023. Today’s article features a handful of new releases and games that came in after I wrapped things up last Friday, with the most notable of the lot being a toilet- based racing game. Sure, why not? We’ve got summaries of all of those as usual, plus the lists of new and expiring sales. No reviews today, I’m afraid. I may or may not have spent the entire weekend playing Tears of the Kingdom instead of, like, anything else. Whoops! Let’s get to work!

New Releases

Gekisou! Benza Race -Toilet Shooting Star- ($13.00)

First of all, this game only has Japanese language support. It’s a racing game so it’s hard to say how much that’s going to be a factor, but keep it in mind. Anyway, customize your toilet and head out for some toilet racing. Pull in a friend for some split-screen racing, or just work your way through the various toilet circuits on your own. It’s strange as heck, and it’s counting on that to sell it. But will you buy? Only time will tell.

Despot’s Game ($19.99)

A roguelite strategy game of sorts where you recruit and equip an army of characters to take part in a bizarre game of death. You can’t directly control your characters, so you’re more of a coach than anything. There’s a fair bit of humor baked in here, and it adds a lot of charm to the affair. Reviews on other platforms were decent if not overwhelmingly great, so I think it’s going to come down to how well you like the game’s concept.

Rainbow Runner ($19.99)

This is an odd one. It’s a party game mixed with a runner, and the idea is that you have to complete challenges or answer questions by running in the appropriate lane. Up to four players can join in via local multiplayer. It’s packed with lots of unlockable stuff to customize your character with, so that’s something. Not sure I would spend twenty bucks on this, but maybe you feel differently.

Death, Soul & Robots ($4.99)

Here’s an affordable Metroidvania-style platformer where you play a cat who is searching an alien planet in order find its soul and save Earth. You’ll make use of several different types of weapons, meet a bunch of characters, and explore six distinct, large areas. If you’re looking for a five-dollar pick-up today, this doesn’t strike me as a bad choice. It’s very, very indie but sometimes that’s the flavor you’re after.

Truck Climb Racing ($0.95)

One cannot help but be suspicious when a new game is priced at under a buck. The thing is, it’s really hard to say any game isn’t worth a buck. It’s such a paltry sum that even if it makes you crack a smile it has probably paid for itself. So I’m not going to tell you that Truck Climb Racing isn’t worth the price it’s asking. But I will say you can probably find better ways to spend that dollar. I mean, unless you really love driving trucks up hills.


(North American eShop, US Prices)

Not a bad list of new sales, to be honest. I’ll call out a few as usual. Daily Dadish has its first deep discount, and I just can’t get enough of that series and its simple platforming charms. Brok the Investigator is an interesting beat-em-up adventure that seems to have slipped under the radar of many, so grab it by the tail if you’re looking for something unusual. Unpacking is a nice chill game and that sale price is also very chill. Over in the outbox, the latest Ubisoft sale is finishing up. Some really great prices there if you’re looking to fill your boots.

Maybe even some news, though there is a whole lot of silence in the wake of Zelda’s release that I expect to carry on for another few days. I hope you all have a magnificent Monday, and as always, thanks for reading.
