Switch checks off its indie-game wishlist with Into the Breach, Towerfall
Nintendo used a YouTube-exclusive presentation on Tuesday to announce a few more popular indie games coming to its Switch system. If you’re looking for a summary, you could call it a few big checkmarks on the ever-increasing Switch-port wish list.
Strategy game (and FTL follow-up) Into the Breach concluded the presentation as a “one more thing” reveal. Its creators confirmed that the awesome Ars Approved game will be on Nintendo’s eShop later today for $15. Ahead of that, other Ars favorites like Wasteland 2, Bastion, Transistor, Hyper Light Drifter, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP all received Switch launch windows between this September and October.
After the raging success of the momentum-based (and Ars Approved) platformer Celeste, its creators at Matt Makes Games finally confirmed something they had hinted at for a while: an expanded port of the incredible four-player battle game Towerfall. This Switch edition adds even more features, including support for six-player combat and new four-player co-op challenges (along with playable Celeste characters, if you’re into that sort of thing). This expanded version will launch on the Switch on September 27.
