Switch eShop

Anew: The Distant Light was successfully funded on Kickstarter last week having raised over $35,000. Before the campaign ended, developer Resonator added in a Switch stretch goal, which was met just before the campaign ended.

As for what the stretch goal entails, Resonator says:

“This is a commitment to full due diligence in planning for development of a Switch port. Their indie program currently appears to be very limited and they are not accepting many games. We anticipate that it will open for more developers at some point, but we will aggressively pursue it regardless. We will acquire dev kits, attempt to establish a developer relationship for the platform like we already have for PlayStation and Xbox, and we will analyze the hardware for technical constraints that we need to optimize around. Doing this early makes a Switch port much more likely and faster to arrive.”

Anew: The Distant Light is a single-player open-world action game taking inspiration from Metroid, Cave Story, and Dark Souls. It’ll be packed with battles, puzzles, and exploration.

Anew: The Distant Light is tentatively planned for July 2018. We’ve included a trailer below.

Team Meat has been tinkering on Super Meat Boy Forever since 2014. It’s now the team’s primary project, so development is in full force.

Super Meat Boy Forever wasn’t initially targeted for consoles, but Team Meat might be expanding its horizons. The team wrote on Twitter today that its upcoming game is a possibility for Switch.


Super Meat Boy Forever was originally imagined as a game that can be played with a simple control scheme. It’s planned to have a randomly generated level structure, full story, six chapters, and twice the amount of bosses as the original. While it’s not an endless runner, an endless mode will be included with high scores and daily runs.

Super Meat Boy Forever has surely come a long way since 2014, but you can see what it looked like during early development in 2014.

The Switch eShop has been updated with three upcoming games. Has-Been Heroes, Snake Pass, and LEGO City Undercover now have listings, and show the file sizes for each.

Has-Been Heroes, coming from Frozenbyte and GameTrust, will require 753MB. Snake Pass is releasing on the same day and is a 3.7GB download. Finally, LEGO City Undercover takes up a hefty 7.1GB.

Has-Been Heroes and Snake Pass are both slated for March 28. LEGO City Undercover will arrive for Switch on April 4.

Thanks to JeGeekJePlay for the tip.

Game visibility on the eShop could pose problems in the future. The only section that highlights new titles is the “Recent Releases” section. Other than that, there’s a “Coming Soon” page showcasing some of the titles heading to Switch in the future and the “Search” function.

Games like Snipperclips and I Am Setsuna have already disappeared from the “Recent Releases” area, indicating that it holds a maximum of 24 entries. That means the only way you can stumble upon them is by searching.

One thing that could help in the future is by adding different pages to the Switch eShop. The store is a bit bare bones at the moment, especially when compared to Wii U and 3DS – both of which have various pages / shelves, charts, and more.

Switch has all sorts of different ways of playing. With Hamster’s Arcade Archives series, it looks like you can actually have a setup in which the screen is displayed vertically. This was discovered with the latest Neo Geo release, Neo Turf Masters, but it applies to the other titles as well.

The screen option admittedly doesn’t have a tremendous amount of use here. In the future though, it’ll be interesting to see if any other Switch games are made with a vertical format in mind.
