Stardew Valley Comes to Nintendo Switch on October 5

Finally, after what seems like forever, we've secured a release date for Stardew Valley on the Switch. The game was originally confirmed for the Switch in 2016, but until yesterday we were never quite sure when. However, the wait is now over. This Thursday, October 5, Switch owners will finally be able to play Stardew Valley at home and on the go. The game is even priced the same as every other console and Steam, with a...

Nindies Showcase Video Presentation coming August 30

Get ready for some more indie news! In a surprise announcement today, Nintendo announced via their Twitter a Nindies Showcase coming this Wednesday. While there are still many great indie games coming to Nintendo Switch, there is apparently still more to announce! There should probably be a mix of news in this showcase between games that have previously been announced, as well as unannounced games that should be a surpr...

SteamWorld Dig 2 is Coming to Switch Late Summer or Early Fall

We've known that SteamWorld Dig 2 was coming to the Switch before any other console for some time now. It was pegged for 2017 when announced, but the kind folks over at Image & Form have narrowed down the release window. The game is "pretty much finished now", and will be released in a few months after a final polish. This means that the game will land on Switch during the late summer or early fall. It will release ...

A.K.A. Mr. Crashy - Mr. Shifty Review

A.K.A. Mr. Crashy - Mr. Shifty Review

Mr. Shifty is a top-down brawler that is largley inspired by 2012's Hotline Miami. Its Switch launch has received quite a bit of media attention, largely due to some overwhelming performance issues. Although these issues are very prevalent and will be detailed in this review, Mr. Shifty shouldn't be written off completely. With publisher tinyBuild promising a performance patch for the Switch version in the near future, ...

It's Still Goo-d - World of Goo Review

It's Still Goo-d - World of Goo Review

Despite being a huge fan of Little Inferno and thoroughly enjoying Human Resource Machine, I've somehow only just played World of Goo for the first time. The game was originally developed by 2D Boy for Wii and PC back in 2008 and was greeted with praise from critics and players alike. Now that Tomorrow Corporation (2D Boy's sort-of succesor) has published the game for Switch, I'm finally able to see if the game lives up...

The More the Merrier - The Jackbox Pary Pack 3 Review

The More the Merrier - The Jackbox Pary Pack 3 Review

The team over at Jackbox Games must be doing something right, because when I had people over to try out The Jackbox Party Pack 3 on Switch, it seemed like I was the only one who hadn't heard of the game. I'm sure the excellent integration for Twitch streaming that is built is partially to blame for that. Even though all of the games were new to me, it only took a few minutes before I had each of them down and was having...

As Hot as Ever - Little Inferno Review

As Hot as Ever - Little Inferno Review

I quickly fell in love with Little Inferno after first playing the game on Wii U back in 2012. When I head I would have a chance to revisit it on Switch in 2017, I was excited to see how the game had aged. I'll be very blunt and say that Little Inferno seems like it should be the most boring title ever released. But the game somehow manages to take a simple concept (burning things in a virtual fireplace) and turns it in...

Cave Story Gets a June 20 Release Date on Switch

Cave Story Gets a June 20 Release Date on Switch

We first found out that Cave Story was coming to the Nintendo Switch when Nicalis tweeted a revealing image in January. Now, we've got official confirmation that Cave Story+ is the version of the game to be released. Like The Binding of Issac Afterbirth+, Cave Story+ will be getting both a digital and physical release on June 20. As such, the game will be a little more pricey than other versions of Cave Story, coming ou...

The Fall Part 2: Unbound is Coming to Nintendo Switch in 2017

Remember The Fall from Over The Moon Games? You might have played it on Wii U back in 2014. We even gave it a great review score. Well, after three years of development, Over The Moon has announced that next part of the game, The Fall Part 2: Unbound will be coming to the Switch. The game will release sometime in 2017 on Nintendo Switch as well as Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, Mac, and Linux. You'll notice that Wii U is ...

Fast RMX and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove are Now Launching with the Switch

Although we now know that there won't be a virtual console ready for the Switch's launch on March 3, we do have confirmation that two indie titles will be ready for release alongside the Switch. These two titles are Fast RMX from Shin'en and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove from Yacht Club Games. As soon as you get your hands on the Switch (if you're not too busy playing Zelda), you'll be able to download these two games f...
