Now Playing: Little Town Hero - Boss Battle Gameplay

Described as a turn-based RPG with a card-based combat system, Little Town Hero first came to the Nintendo Switch in October 2019. In GameSpot's Little Town Hero review, critic Suriel Vazquez gave the game a 5/10, praising its music--which was composed by Undertale creator Toby Fox--but faulting almost everything else about the game. "Little Town Hero finds some success in avoiding some of the complex systems and tedious menus that can bog down other card games and RPGs, but it ends up suffering for it," he wrote.

This announcement comes on the heels of major Pokemon news. The first DLC for the game's latest entry, Sword and Shield, is out today. Additionally, The Pokemon Company recently announced that it's producing a sequel to the cult N64 game Pokemon Snap, which involved taking photos of Pokemon in their natural habitats.
