When we last heard about The Girl and the Robot, is was slated to end up on Wii U by the end of 2016. That didn’t happen, but this version of the game hasn’t been cancelled. It’s been submitted to Nintendo, so it shouldn’t be too long before The Girl and the Robot is published on the eShop.
As for Switch, a release on the new console might be in the cards. Flying Carpets Games wrote on Twitter that the team is “exploring” the platform.
@peachykeeny Made a Wii U submission to Nintendo, now waiting! More info on that and PS4 version soon. We are also exploring the Switch…

Update: Bumped to the top. The North American eShop has updated with a similar listing and confirms the same date. Priced at $12.99.
Original: A significant indie game is launching for Switch in Europe next week. Based on an eShop listing, Graceful Explosion Machine will be available on April 6.
Here’s a look at the eShop page:
Graceful Explosion Machine hasn’t been dated for North America yet, but it shouldn’t be too far behind. And of course, the eShop is region free, so regional release dates don’t matter quite as much as they do on Wii U and 3DS.

Pocket Rumble was one of the many promising indie games revealed for Switch lately and initially, the 2D brawler was targeted for a release in March. We are now quickly approaching the end of March and unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like Pocket Rumble will make its targeted release date. Developer Cardboard Robot Games had the following to say on Twitter:
We’re currently unable to comment on the release date of Pocket Rumble. As soon as that changes we can and will post more info.
We know this isn’t the news you wanted to hear. Thank you so much for your overwhelming support so far. We love you guys!
This is definitely disappointing, but hopefully the delay won’t be too bad.

Anew: The Distant Light targeting Switch
Posted on 1 day ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 3 Comments | 0 Likes
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.

Gunman Clive creator shows videos for new 3D action-platformer, future unclear
Posted on 5 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 15 Comments | 0 Likes
Gunman Clive creator Bertil Hörberg has been working on an interesting-looking project for quite some time, but its future status is unclear.
Hörberg shared a couple of videos yesterday showing his new 3D action game made in a custom engine. The second video is from last February, and there’s been “very little progress” since that point. Hörberg said he’s “been thinking of scrapping it several times,” though “whenever I try come up with something else I feel like I’d actually rather do this project”. While Hörberg feels that its scope is too large and “has a lot of unsolved problems,” it may be “this or nothing at all.”
The two videos are as follows:
Both Gunman Clive games are on Nintendo platforms, so Hörberg would likely target something such as Switch if this project ever comes to fruition. If nothing else, it has a very unique style.
