Hex Gambit has managed to reach its funding goal on Kickstarter. One Man Left Studios was looking to raise $11,000, which was just reached. Switch was a part of the main goal, so the game is officially confirmed for Nintendo’s console.

Here’s what you can expect from Hex Gambit:

In a world called Agon, the sharpest strategic minds command squads of expendable automatons in an explosive arena sport called the Hex Gambit.

Hex Gambit is a unique turn-based strategy game coming to Steam and the Nintendo Switch™ console, from the makers of the cult classic Outwitters (view our entire catalog of games here). It’s designed to get to the fun part fast: Drag and drop minions onto your side of the map on Turn 1; start hitting stuff on Turn 2! Games typically last 10-30 minutes (depending how fast you think), with the action always intensifying in the late game for an epic conclusion.

Hex Gambit will be on Switch sometime in 2018.

Earlier today, we found out that Forever Entertainment is bringing Violett to Switch via an eShop listing. That won’t be the publisher’s only release on the system.

Also in the works is Prodigy, an upcoming tactical RPG developed by Hanakai Studio. It was funded on Kickstarter back in 2014.

Here’s a brief overview:

Prodigy is a head to head tactical role playing game with mixed turn-based and real time multiplayer action, pitting your heroes against those of your friends or online opponent. The game will feature both PvE and PvP modes, including Ranked and Unranked Multiplayer.

Forever Entertainment will be putting the “electronic” version of Prodigy on Switch. The download version makes use of a “digital board tested through a closed Alpha”, and it “will be entirely compatible” with the physical version.

Forced away from her friends and life in the city; she imagines how boring life in countryside will be: spending day after day, bored in her room with absolutely nothing to do. But what she cannot imagine, is that in just a few moments, she’ll have the adventure of her life.
