Alien Crush
– Alien Crush is a pinball game that features realistic pinball action and superb “biomechanical” graphics. Complete with a function to nudge the machine, this TurboGrafx-16 game feels like you’re playing on a real pinball machine! Extra balls and bonus points are your keys to getting high scores.

Neutopia II – Experience improved graphics and controls in this exciting TurboGrafx-16 sequel to the original action RPG. Once again you’ll need to rely on your magic compass and the information you’ve gathered to find entrances to labyrinths and defeat the bosses in them.

Fire Emblem Heroes – Tempest Trials – Running until June 21 at 11:59 p.m. PT, this special event introduces a series of maps you must fight your way through from beginning to end. Gather your strongest allies and challenge your way to the final map! If all of the allies on your team are defeated, you can immediately make a new team and try the map again. However, defeated allies cannot be used again until the final map is cleared, or until all your teams are defeated and you attempt a new trial. During this time, there will also be quests related to Tempest Trials. Also, to celebrate this new event, a new Xenologue Map has been added. Available on App Store and Google Play, this mobile application is free-to-start and offers some optional in-app purchases.

Is this Nintendo's actual press release? Shantae really got buried on this thing.

@PogueSquadron

Yeah, I agree...that's why I featured it in the top post. It should be noted that the first DLC is available on Switch with this version (free), and won't be on other versions until a later date.
