Kid Tripp won’t just be a 3DS game. The platformer, confirmed for the portable system earlier this month, is now coming to Switch as well.

Here’s what developer Four Horses is saying about the Switch release:

“Lovingly recreated pixel by pixel, the Switch version will have all the levels from the original game with new control methods alongside the original “Hardcore” control mode for those who really like to challenge themselves.”


Physical Contact: Speed has been dated for the Japanese Switch eShop. It’s set for release on June 29 with a 500 yen price point. Physical Contact will also be out in the west at some point.

Here’s a new trailer for Physical Contact: Speed:

This week’s issue of Famitsu reveals that Implosion – Never Lose Hope is coming to Switch. Previously, the hack ‘n slash game was released on mobile.

Chucklefish unveiled a new feature of its turn-based strategy game Wargroove at the PC Gaming Show at E3 today. When the upcoming Switch game ships, it’ll come with functionality that lets players make their own campaigns, including custom levels. See the feature in action below.

The Binding of Isaac and Super Meat Boy creator Ed McMillen announced his new game The End is Nigh last week, and it’s on the way to Switch. Find some footage of it below from Twitch’s E3 stream.

Gunscape is a first-person shooter construction kit that was originally planned for Wii U. But at this point, it’s probably safe to say that it won’t come out on that system.

While Wii U is probably out, Switch could be a possibility. A developer speaking on the official Gunscape forum noted that cross-play between Switch and Xbox One has been “conditionally approved”. We assume that means players on both consoles would be able to play online together if Gunscape were to be made for Switch.

Thanks to Mike for the tip.


Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas launches for Switch via the eShop on June 22. This will be the only way to purchase the game. Reader StrawHatEevee emailed the developer, and received a reply stating that there are currently “no plans” to make it available as a physical release.

FDG will be publishing Monster Boy on Switch. Unlike Oceanhorn, there’s a good chance for a physical version of that game.
