Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for September 30th, 2019. It’s the final day of the month and the first day of the working week. What will the new week and month bring? Lots of games. Lots and lots. But that’s just normal around here, isn’t it? Today at least is a little quiet, with a pair of new releases, a little bit of news, and a whole bunch of sales. Let’s head in! News The First DLC Pack for ‘Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3’ is Out Now If you bought that shiny expansion pass for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, your day has finally come. Marvel Knights: Curse of the Vampire is now available, adding a new story scenario and bringing Punisher, Blade, Morbius, and Moon Knight to the playable roster. There are also some new challenges in the Gauntlet Mode. For those who didn’t pick up the expansion pass, you still get some goodies today. As promised, free costumes for Captain America, Black Panther, Iron Man, and Thor have been made available. Cap’s Super Soldier look, Black Panther’s awesome Thrice-Blessed Armor, Iron Man’s Extremis Armor, and Thor’s Ultimate Thor style are now in the game. Not my first picks for all of those characters, but still cool. Another Update for ‘Chasm’ is Coming October 3rd Chasm is a pretty interesting take on the whole Metroidvania concept....

Or rather, the last fourteen days, as I missed last week due to the holiday in Japan. Well, that just means more genuinely noteworthy stuff and less “Toy Match Blast of Clans gets fifty new levels” fol-de-rol, so that’s not horrible.  Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself using AppShopper or by participating in the TouchArcade forums. This weekly summary is just here to fill you in on the things you might have missed. Let’s go for it! ANOTHER EDEN, Free Another Eden gets another update and I make this same joke another time. It’s all a cycle, isn’t it? Anyway, this update adds new story content with a new map and area. There’s a new class unlocked for Amy, and some new encounters. Toova (Another Style) and new character Elga have been added. Rounding things out are some bug fixes and adjustments to the text to correct some mistakes. SEGA Heroes: Puzzle RPG Quest, Free The biggest part of the latest update to SEGA Heroes is the arrival of Chu Chu Rocket characters to the roster, no doubt to tie in with the new game on Apple Arcade. Chuih is the first character added from the game, but three more...
