Dead Synchronicity has joined the Switch eShop in North America and Europe. Take a look at the official launch trailer below.

The physical version of Axiom Verge launches on Switch and other platforms today. Creator Tom Happ teamed up with BadLand Games to make that possible.

We didn’t know about this previously, but BadLand Games will be donating 75% of its share to a special fund that will help cover the healthcare costs for Happ’s son, Alastair. It’s with a heavy heart that we say doctors failed to treat Alastair with a routine case of jaundice when he was just days old. This sadly left him with Kernicterus that severely impacts his motor control and hearing.

Happ says BadLand “didn’t want to publicize it, since none of us wanted to be seen as trying to use my son’s suffering as a marketing tool for the game.” Still, this is an admirable move on BadLand’s part.

Happ wrote the following on the Axiom Verge website today:

The platformer Ginger: Beyond the Crystal is hitting Switch digitally this week, with a physical version to follow later. We’ve posted some footage below.

The physical version of Axiom Verge has a new release date on Switch. You’ll be able to purchase the game at retail in North America on November 21.

We’ll be hearing about the European release date later. BadLand Games will have news to share about the Wii U version down the road as well.

As for what’s included in the physical version of Axiom Verge, you’ll get a copy of the game, a behind-the-scenes documentary content on Blu-ray, an art book, 2-sided poster, and a soundtrack CD exclusive to Switch.

The 3D platformer Ginger: Beyond the Crystal was first outed for Switch via a rating from the USK. BadLand Games has now officially confirmed the release.

You’ll be able to purchase Ginger: Beyond the Crystal digitally on November 17. A physical version will follow in 2018.

We have more information about the game below, along with a trailer.

Fictiorama Studios, in partnership with BadLand Games, has announced that the dystopian adventure game Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today is coming to Switch. The game promises “a dark, atmospheric storyline set in a dystopian future” with “many plot twists, German Expressionism-inspired 2D art, and witty dialogue”.

Here’s a more extensive overview:

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.”

He added:

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.
