Indivisible is a new action-RPG from Lab Zero Games, the creator of Skullgirls. Nintendo fans might be interested to hear that a Switch release may happen.

On Twitter, the official Indivisible mentioned that the team is “investigating the possibility of a Switch release” with publisher 505 Games:


We heard something similar back in December 2015. At the time, the game’s Twitter account said Switch would be considered when more information surfaced. Nothing is set, but it looks like the team is now actively looking into the possibility.

aeiowu announced TumbleSeed for Switch earlier this week. This spring, the eShop will be adding a “rolly roguelike” game.

One of the developers shared information on how TumbleSeed will use Switch’s HD Rumble feature earlier today. Although aeiowu is still working on it, the functionality “allows you to feel where the seed is on the screen (left or right) and how fast you’re rolling.” And “if you’re rolling fast at all in our game, you’re usually outta control so it sorta provides a 6th sense that allows you to feel your inertia.”

Monster Couch is looking to bring Die for Valhalla! to Switch, developer Monster Couch said today. Actual development on the system has yet to begin, but the team is looking into obtaining a dev kit and will attempt to have it ready alongside other platforms.

Monster Couch describes its game as “a beat ’em up with a paranormal twist.” You play as the ghostly witch Valkyrie, who has been sent to help Vikings save their world.

The Die for Valhalla! Kickstarter page shares the following information:

“You summon heroes from Valhalla and make them hack, slash and crush. Your job is to make sure they take down as many enemies as possible before they Die for Valhalla!

You will also discover tales about Vikings and their Myths. As a Valkyrie, you will seek the truth about yourself and the nature of the world. Things are not always what they seem.”

Speaking of Kickstarter, Die for Valhalla! is indeed seeking some funding at the moment. About half of the $5,600 goal has been raised so far.

As of now, Yooka-Laylee will be an eShop-only title on Switch. That doesn’t mean Playtonic is interested in a physical version, however.

In a Kickstarter FAQ on its website, Playtonic again says that “the Kickstarter Switch version will be delivered to backers via digital game codes and thus no additional upgrade cost is required.” The notice then goes on to state:

“For Kickstarter, unfortunately physical Switch editions are beyond our scope right now, as we anticipate the difference in costs compared to digital formats would result in further expense to backers which we’re unable to accurately determine at this point in time. If circumstances change, we’ll update you ASAP as we 100% would love to do a Physical Release on Switch.”

Playtonic says the team is “working as hard and fast as we can and are looking forward to giving you the answers you’re looking for on many topics including release timing” on Switch. The studio also thanked Nintendo fans “for their continued patience and understanding.”

TumbleSeed is in the works for Switch, aeiowu has announced. The “rolly roguelike” is coming to the eShop this spring.

Here’s a brief overview of the game:

“TumbleSeed is a rolly roguelike about a small seed with big dreams. Roll up a procedurally generated mountain filled with holes and corrupted creatures. Reach the top and save your home! TumbleSeed features simple controls that are easy to pickup but difficult to master. Balance the seed, grow powerful with upgrades, and meet new friends on your way to the peak.”

On Switch, TumbleSeed features HD Rumble.
