Hyper Light Drifter

During the early days of Hyper Light Drifter, Wii U was targeted as one of the game’s platforms. But sadly, that version was eventually cancelled due to technical issues.

A release of Hyper Light Drifter on Nintendo platforms seemed to have been ruled out. However, since the big N has a new, more powerful console on the market, Heart Machine is now “looking into” Switch.

Creator Alex Preston told one fan on Twitter:


Beach Buggy Racing is making its way soon to Switch, according to the European eShop. It could be arriving as early as next week based on a listing from the store.

Beach Buggy Racing is a kart racer that previously came out on other platforms. It features six game modes, fifteen tracks, various power-ups, and more.

We could be seeing Beach Buggy Racing in Europe on July 27 assuming the eShop listing is accurate, and likely in North America soon as well. Find a bunch of game details and a trailer below.

Yesterday, a listing for Infinite Minigolf appeared on the European Switch eShop with a release date of July 24. It seems to have been off, though only slightly.

Zen Studios has now announced that Infinite Minigolf officially launches on July 25. Better yet, cross-platform user created course sharing is confirmed. If a course is created and shared via Steam, the same course can be shared with players on Switch, PS4, and Xbox One (and vise versa).

Infinite Minigolf was originally planned for spring. We’re passed that point, but it looks like we won’t have to wait much longer for Zen Studios’ first Switch game.

According to a European eShop listing, Infinite Minigolf is scheduled for July 24. We would anticipate it launching around the same time in North America, assuming the eShop page is accurate.

Qbics Paint, first made known at the end of May, could have a release date. Nintendo’s website lists the game for July 27 on the Switch eShop. It will cost $4.99.

Note that this date is not 100% final. Abylight may make the release date official within the next week or so.

In the meantime, here’s everything you need to know about Qbics Paint:

The European Switch eShop now has a listing up for Phantom Trigger. If what’s mentioned is correct, the game will be releasing on July 27. Pricing will be set at €14.99 / £13.49.

Here’s an overview:

Stan is losing control. The phantom realm brings arcade hexes into a pulsing neon reality, where demons fight in packs and use every trick they have to break your defense. Throw spells and traps mid-combo, ride the edge of control and chaos in this fresh take on action combat. You are your own worst enemy in Phantom Trigger.

tinyBuild shared a video last night showing Phantom Trigger running on Switch. You can find that right here.

Springloaded has unveiled Ultra Hyperball, the studio’s first title for Switch. The “frantic party game” will offer various modes, including a single-player story mode and multiplayer with up to four people. Touch controls and motion controls will be supported.

Ultra Hyperball doesn’t have a release date, but it’s coming soon. You can watch a trailer for the game below.

Thimbleweed Park was announced for Switch last week. It’s a new point-and-click adventure game from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, two of the developers known for classics like The Secret of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion.

For now, Thimbleweed Park doesn’t have a specific release date on Switch. However, Terrible Toybox told Eurogamer that it’s “coming soon”.

A representative passed along the following note to the site:

“We’re waiting to announce a timeframe for Switch until we can be sure, so for right now it’s just ‘coming soon’. It’s in active development (as you can tell from Ron’s video!) so hopefully won’t be too long of a wait.”
