REVIEW – Code of Princess EX (Switch)

A New Guardian Originally released in 2012 on 3DS and published by Atlus, Code of Princess received somewhat of a cult following for its scantily clad protagonist and combo-based combat system.

Retro Done Right River City Ransom and Super Dodge Ball are a couple of my favorite NES games. While America received some Dodge Ball sequels and other Kunio-Kun spin-offs, we never got a true sequel to River City.
