Nintendo Direct Highlights & Furry Games - June 2024

Nintendo Power Hour! 

A much anticipated Nintendo Direct finally premiered on June 18th, 2024. With it, came news about a variety of upcoming releases for the Nintendo Switch happening in Q3 and Q4 of the year. A lot of fun games had been announced both first and third party with several coming soon. Lets look at some of the highlights.

Kitsune Tails Preview - A Foxy Adventure

Having recently come back from playing Super Mario Bros. I was naturally intrigued by Kitsune Tails which got showcased as part of the Wholesome Direct I covered previously. It's adorable, full of Japanese inspired charm and the protagonist is a fox. All things that very much appeal to me. And like the game series it clearly takes gameplay inspiration from, it is brutal.

Players step into the paws of Yuzu, a kitsune who has recently become a courier. Yuzu is a curious and energetic fox who frequently gets into trouble. Which becomes all the more apparent with a cutscene after the first level where Yuzu gets attacked by an oni while foraging for mushrooms in a cave. A couriers life is not an easy one, especially as Yuzu gets tasked with delivering a letter to a ghostly warlord in a haunted house. The amount of stage variety in the demo isn’t bad and they aren’t easy to clear either.
