Eurogamer has confirmed in an interview with Andreas Firnigl, boss of developer Nosebleed Interactive, that Vostok Inc. will be released on the Switch. No date has been confirmed, but Firnigl hopes it will be out soon, with a cost around £11.99. There will also be a bonus New Game+ option on the Nintendo console.
Firnigl said that he wanted to ensure a Switch version because it was “a perfect thing.”
On Switch you can sit for five minutes on the bus playing it, or I can sit watching the TV and my daughter will come in and want to watch Netflix so I can take the Switch out and play actively, or put it down. It just feels like the perfect fit.

Posted on 21 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 50 Comments | 0 Likes
It’s rather surprising, but Bethesda has been one of Switch’s strongest supporters thus far. Unlike what we saw with previous console generations, the company is already preparing a few games for Nintendo’s system. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launches in November, followed by Doom this holiday, and Wolfenstein II in 2018.
Nintendo fans will be happy to hear that this could be just the start of Bethesda’s plans for Switch. In an interview with GamesBeat, vice president of marketing and communications Pete Hines noted that they don’t intend to just release these games and stop. “We want this to be the start of a relationship that we build with Nintendo and Nintendo fans,” Hines noted.
More comments from Hines about Switch are included below. You can read the full interview on GamesBeat here.

Etrian Odyssey V – Harbinger class trailer
Atlus has a new Etrian Odyssey V trailer focusing on the Harbinger class. We have the video along with a brief introduction below.
Wielding both a giant scythe and the mysterious energy known as miasma, Harbingers are reapers of destruction ready to protect you at a moment’s notice. Besides being able to dish out the damage by cutting down swaths of enemies, Harbingers can harness the powers of miasma to help the party or hurt enemies. Using TP, they can summon powerful miasma armor with passive support or status ailment abilities (like curse, paralyze, etc…). Be warned though, wearing the armor will drain a little bit of HP. They might be an unconventional class, but can be a force to be reckoned with in the right hands.
