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.”

It was recently announced that Switch has added support for GameMaker Studio 2. Developers have since been pledging support for the system, including Abylight and Locomalito.

Thanks to the upcoming Switch export option for GameMaker Studio, Cursed Castilla and Super Hydorah are on the way to the system. Both will be released “as soon as feasible.”

Abylight is publishing Qbics Paint on the Switch eShop next week. For an early look at the game, watch the video below.

Next week, Abylight is publishing Qbics Paint on Switch as a digital download. Get a look at the official trailer below.

Cursed Castilla is a relatively small game on 3DS. To download the game, just 967 blocks of free space is needed – or 120.875MB. Cursed Castilla launches on the eShop this Thursday.

Cursed Castilla (Maldita Castilla EX) is arriving next week in North America and Europe, Abylight has announced. It will be priced at $11.99 / €11.99.

Maldita Castilla is an action-platformer, now with stereoscopic 3D and a new coin-op mode on 3DS. You’ll be fighting as a brave knight as you attempt to fight against dark forces that have taken over the land.

After making a few titles for 3DS, Abylight is now shifting its attention to Switch. The studio announced Qbics Paint for the system today.

Qbics Paint uses Switch’s touchscreen for 3D modeling and painting. You’ll be able to customize Qbics with a 24-color palette. There’s a “Creation Mode to sculpt and paint freestyle your own Qbics – or let your imagination run wild editing those you already unlocked, and combine it with the Image mode using a wide range of stock images to get you inspired”.

Here’s a rundown of features:

⦁ Release your stress with its relaxing gameplay while you train your creative skills and your spatial vision
⦁ Anyone can sculpt and paint in 3D by using its user-friendly interface
⦁ The touch screen of the Nintendo Switch makes a great canvas to create artwork that can be shared at Social Media through the Capture Button
⦁ 4 game modes: Sculpt, Paint, Creation, and Image
⦁ More than 50 models to unlock and 50 empty spaces to create your own figures

Qbics Paint will be available this year on the eShop. Abylight will share a final release date “shortly.”

Originally released last year, Cursed Castilla is now on the way to 3DS. Here’s a brief overview of the well-received action-platformer:

“In Cursed Castilla you become Don Ramiro in order to fight the evil invading the lands of Tolomera, following the orders of the king Alfonso VI of Castilla. The action takes place in the Kingdom of Castilla (a medieval kingdom in what is today Spain), and thus you won’t face the typical, well, ghosts and goblins: your enemies will be creatures such as mouras, ojáncanos and nuberus, monsters from the European folklore, legends and chivalric romances. “

Cursed Castilla was originally created with the GameMaker Engine. This is unfortunately not supported on 3DS, so Abylight implemented its own engine VEGA in order to adapt the game on Nintendo’s handheld. Abylight also says “the development team has included a few traits for the player to enjoy in this Nintendo 3DS version, such as a new coin-op mode to revive the glory of the arcade times, and an astounding stereoscopic 3D effect.”

You can expect the following features from Cursed Castilla:

– New coin-op mode
– Stereoscopic 3D effect
– Restless action through 8 game stages
– Fight against +48 types of enemies and 19 final bosses
– Find the secrets that will lead you up to 4 different engines
– Illustrated bestiary with unlockable information about the legends featured in the game
– Brag about your combat skills with 16 unlockable achievements
– Let out your battle cry with songs from the original soundtrack and the remastered audio
