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. The functionality is used to provide “a unique sense of how fast and where the player is rolling in the world.” aeiowu says “Switch is the only game console available that can provide this experience and TumbleSeed aims to be the console’s flagship title for HD Rumble.”

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed developer has announced that its new puzzle-platformer Snake Pass is planned for Switch.

Even though it’s been in development for just a month, Sumo Digital COO Paul Porter says it’s going well. He said:

“Considering the short amount of time we have been working on the platform and the fact that the Switch isn’t launched yet, things have gone surprisingly well. We had the game up and running within a week. Nintendo and Epic have given us tremendous support when needed. The use of Unreal gave us a great head start when we first got the hardware.”

Eurogamer reports that Snake Pass supports TV, tabletop and handheld modes on the Switch, running at 30 frames per second at 720p when undocked. It will be 30 frames per second and 1080p when docked.

Snake Pass will launch on Switch at the same time as other platforms early this year. Watch a trailer for the game below.
