Hazelight Studios’ Lucas de Vries weighed in yesterday as to why A Way Out isn’t on Switch. Director Josef Fares has now commented as well.

Like de Vries, Fares pointed out that the game requires camera controls, which can’t really be done if you want to play on a single Joy-Con. He also brought up that the team hasn’t really looked into Switch yet, and he’s “not saying it will never happen.”

Nintendo hosted a Nindies panel at GDC 2018 today. Among what was discussed, the company highlighted strong digital sales and touched on improvements planned for the Switch eShop.

First, as USgamer supports, digital sales of third-party games for Switch and 3DS are exceeding sales of traditional boxed games in the US. Nintendo also said that eShop navigation will be improved on Switch for “better discoverability”. With more and more games coming to Switch each week, it’s difficult for titles to stand out and for consumers to find them. It sounds like Nintendo will be looking to improve the situation in the future.



One of the notable elements we previously heard about with Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is the game’s indie collaborations. This wasn’t spoken of as of late, but we finally have some concrete news on that front.

It’s been announced that Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes will feature Hyper Light Drifter gear that you can wear. Further specifics haven’t been provided, so it’s currently unclear if this is just a cosmetic bonus.

Hyper Light Drifter was actually just announced for Switch a short while ago. Abylight and Heart Machine will have it ready for this summer.


Today, Nintendo unveiled the top-selling indie games on Switch to date. Although we don’t have actual numbers, Nintendo’s publisher and developer-relations department Damon Baker shared which games are in the top ten.

During a Nindies event at GDC today, Nintendo revealed that Crashlands is making its way to Switch. Developer Butterscotch Shenanigans has not yet shared a release window.

Crashlands is another title joining Switch thanks to its new support for GameMaker Studio 2. The engine will be adding proper Switch support this summer.

Last year, Messhof said Nidhogg 2 would make sense on Switch. It’s now happening, as the studio has announced that the game is bound for Nintendo’s console. It’s planned for sometime in 2018.

Messhof revealed the news on Twitter today:

Abylight is collaborating with Heart Machine to bring Hyper Light Drifter to Switch, the company announced today. A release is planned for this summer. Also, it’ll be launching worldwide.

Abylight says it’s working closely with GameMaker engine developer Yoyo Games since “this title pushed the technical envelope.”

In what has essentially become a weekly ritual at this point, the SNES Classic Edition has been restocked at GameStop. You can nab one here.

Based on past precedent, this will likely sell out eventually. But GameStop has been one of the few retailers restocking the SNES Classic Edition almost weekly.

Back when Nintendo was producing DLC for Smash Bros. Wii U / 3DS, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said he’d like to see Banjo included. Now that Smash Bros. is returning on Switch, fans are once again asking about the possibility of Banjo appearing.

Nothing has changed with Spencer’s mindset over the past few years. When asked if he’s still willing to let Banjo – as well as Kazooie – show up in the new game, he shared a simple “Yep”.

A new launch trailer is in for R.B.I. Baseball 18. You can watch the video below.

R.B.I. Baseball 18 doesn’t have a definitive release date on Switch just yet. It’s currently lined up for sometime this spring.
