TumbleSeed is one of the next notable indie titles on Switch. To download it, you’ll need 427MB of free space on internal memory or a microSD card. TumbleSeed should be available on May 2 in both North America and Europe.

More footage has arrived showing off TumbleSeed, which launches for Switch on May 2. View another hour of gameplay below.

At the very start of May, the indie game TumbleSeed will be landing on Switch as a digital download. Have a look at 18 minutes of footage below.

SnowCastle Games was last hoping to launch Earthlock: Festival of Magic on Wii U by early March. That didn’t happen though, and we haven’t heard much about the Wii U version since. A new Kickstarter update provides an update on the situation.

SnowCastle is reconfirming that the Wii U version is on the way. As for the holdup, the team explained:

“I would like to ensure you all that we are still working on the Wii U version. We did the first optimization pass in January and were very hopeful that we would be able to release the game soon after that. However during the Quality Assurance process afterwards, we concluded that it needed more work, and so here we are.

The Wii U version has gone through a full second optimization pass and is now in QA again. We are still working hard on getting it out ASAP, but having missed the estimated date in the last KS update, I’ll just stick to the ‘as soon as possible.'”

A Switch version of Earthlock is still an uncertainty. However, if it does happen, all Wii U backers will receive a copy for free.

Jet Set Radio composer Hideki Naganuma is on board with Hover: Revolt of Gamers for the project’s music. Two tracks were made for the upcoming game, and while both are now live in the Steam Early Access version, you can also listen to them on Soundcloud.


Hover: Revolt of Gamers was originally funded on Kickstarter in 2014. It doesn’t appear to be planned for Wii U anymore, but a Switch version is in the cards.

Ira confirmed for Switch

Ore Creative began to show interest in bringing Ira to Switch in February. Today, the indie developer officially announced that it’s happening.

A simple but effective message from the official Ira Twitter page reads:


Ira is a point-and-click adventure game in which players “explore alien landscapes, relive past events, and watch as the nature of reality becomes porous and untrustworthy.” It’s planned for release at some point this year.

At the end of last year, we heard Messhof co-founder Kristy Norindr say that Switch and Nidhogg would be a “perfect” match. Creative director Mark Essen apparently feels the same way.

Gamereactor asked Essen about a potential version of the upcoming sequel, Nidhogg 2. He said in response: “Yeah, definitely, I mean it’s two players so it makes sense, simple control scheme, so…”

Nidhogg 2 launches later this year. If we hear anything official about a Switch version, we’ll be sure to let you know.

At EGX Rezzed earlier this month, a special Switch panel was held. Representatives from Dangerous Kitchen, Image & Form, Ghost Town Games, and Zoink Games stopped by to talk about developing indie games on the platform. The full recording is now available, and we have it below.

Pocket Rumble was planned to hit the Switch eShop in March. That didn’t happen sadly, and the game remains without a concrete release date. The good news is that Pocket Rumble shouldn’t be too far off.

As for why Pocket Rumble was delayed, one of the co-designers mentioned that “the date we announced was too early to begin with due to miscommunication”. “Working out the technical kinks of the port has just taken much longer than we expected,” the developer added.
