Continuing what has been one of the longest ongoing waits for a confirmed Switch title yet, developer 34BigThings has once again confirmed that Redout is still on the way.

In as many words, the studio’s official Twitter account reassured fans that the racer title is still coming. The most recent update aside from this –back in November — stated that the game was “very much” in the works and in fact, was close to wrapping up development.

The brief tweet from 34BigThings can be viewed below.

Nicalis is known for packing in special goodies with its Switch games. RemiLore, the publisher’s next title, will be receiving that same treatment.

Pre-orders for the RemiLore Launch Edition are available on Amazon here.

Redout might just be the most elusive Switch game at the moment. It was announced for the console nearly two years ago, but it still hasn’t released. There also haven’t been made status updates since then.

Thankfully, Redout still remains in the works for Switch and could be coming sooner rather than later. Guiseppe Franchi, from developer 34BigThings, told Fragments of Silicon that it’s “very much” still happening.

System: Switch (eShop)
Release date: October 30, 2018
Developer: Christophe Galati / Nicalis
Publisher: Nicalis

If you’ve gone back at all to the vast catalog of Game Boy games, you might be surprised by how so much of it is really doesn’t hold up. The Game Boy was Nintendo’s first true portable system with swappable game carts, rather than a single-purpose LCD Game & Watch toy. It had to be able to run actual games, with actual computer processors. These processors were very out-of-date even when the Game Boy was new, with its Z80 CPU having powered many computers from the late 1970s. As the first of its kind, the grey brick was a heap of technical and financial compromises; but it could run the oddball Super Mario Land, and later Tetris, Pokémon, and even a Zelda game in Link’s Awakening. Trying to adapt overly ambitious home-console NES game for the meager capabilities of the machine lead to cases like Metroid II, Castlevania: The Adventure, and Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge. I have tried going back to these games on the 3DS Virtual Console, and they just aren’t fun.
