Undertale is Eventually Coming to Switch

During this week's Nintendo Direct, we got brief word that Undertale was coming to Switch. That's about all we know. The release date is officially "eventually". This is a rather unexpected announcement, but the cult-classic is certainly a welcome addition to the Switch's library. We'll keep you posted about a real release date when we get one.

Down and Dirty - SteamWorld Dig Review

SteamWorld Dig has dug itself a nice following since it first released nearly five years ago, earning itself a sequel last year. This isn’t the first time the game has graced a Nintendo platform, launching as a 3DS exclusive and eventually making its way to the Wii U in 2014, nor is it the first time it has been on a handheld. However, the Switch release marks the first time it has come to a handheld in full HD. I...

The Fall Part 2 Gets a February 13 Release Date on Switch

The Fall Part 2: Unbound, an indie title from Over the Moon Games, is now set for release on February 13th on Nintendo Switch. The game is the second part in the trilogy and a sequel to the The Fall, which we reviewed on Wii U back in 2014. It's very exciting that the next installment in the series is finally coming to Nintendo Switch, because we really enjoyed the first game. A final price has yet to be revealed, but t...

The Fast and the Furi-ous - Furi Review

The Fast and the Furi-ous - Furi Review

Describing Furi in one sentence will not do the game any justice, as it is more than its outer shell suggests. At the most basic, it is a boss rush shoot-em-up combined with one-on-one close range combat sequences at certain sections of a battle. It is extremely challenging and not for the faint of heart, demanding the most from the player. Does the game live up to its furious moniker, or does it fall flat on its face? ...

Stardew Valley Comes to Nintendo Switch on October 5

The game was originally confirmed for the Switch in 2016, but until yesterday we were never quite sure when. However, the wait is now over. This Thursday, October 5, Switch owners will finally be able to play Stardew Valley at home and on the go. The game is even priced the same as every other console and Steam, with a...

SteamWorld Dig 2 is Coming to Switch Late Summer or Early Fall

We've known that SteamWorld Dig 2 was coming to the Switch before any other console for some time now. It was pegged for 2017 when announced, but the kind folks over at Image & Form have narrowed down the release window. The game is "pretty much finished now", and will be released in a few months after a final polish. This means that the game will land on Switch during the late summer or early fall. It will release ...

A.K.A. Mr. Crashy - Mr. Shifty Review

A.K.A. Mr. Crashy - Mr. Shifty Review

Mr. Shifty is a top-down brawler that is largley inspired by 2012's Hotline Miami. Its Switch launch has received quite a bit of media attention, largely due to some overwhelming performance issues. Although these issues are very prevalent and will be detailed in this review, Mr. Shifty shouldn't be written off completely. With publisher tinyBuild promising a performance patch for the Switch version in the near future, ...
