The Zoink-developed Fe is on the way to Switch, EA just announced at its Gamescom 2017 media briefing.
Here’s a brief overview:
Fe is a new type of wordless platformer full of sounds. Through Fe, a small cub that suddenly awakes in the forest, players will discover a world they will never want to leave as they use sound to communicate, connect with nature, identify friendly and unfriendly creatures and interpret their own narrative along the way.
Fe isn’t the only new Switch game from Zoink. The studio is also working on Flipping Death for Nintendo’s console.
Fe will be available on Switch in early 2018. View a trailer for the game below, along with today’s full announcement.
Battle Chasers dev “hit a few issues” with the Switch version, may or may not be delayed
Posted on 3 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 14 Comments | 0 Likes
THQ Nordic sent out the opening animation for Battle Chasers: Nightwar last week. At the end of the video, a message appears stating that the Switch version of the game will be launching “slightly later”.
So here’s something interesting. Airship Syndicate posted an update about the Switch version on Kickstarter, and suggested that there may not actually be a delay. While the team has “hit a few issues that are slowing things down,” a delay is not officially set in stone. And if it does happen, the Switch version likely won’t be pushed back too significantly. The Kickstarter post adds “we’re doing everything in our power to make the October 3rd launch date”.
