Yesterday afternoon Nintendo made the joyous announcement that they’ve partnered with a number of indie developers, in an effort to ensure the Switch has a flurry of top-quality content on a regular basis - something the poor old Wii U never could quite muster.
Choice Provisions have also dazzled us with their naming prowess, as they announced Runner 3, the third in the fabulous BIT.TRIP RUNNER series. The game will feature the hardcore platformer/rhythm gameplay crossover the series is famous for, and will be an exclusive to the Switch when it launches this autumn.
Team 17 have been good enough to confirm Playtonic’s highly-anticipated return to 3d platforming with Yooka-Laylee, Ghost Town Games fantastic culinary local multiplayer masterpiece Overcooked and their very own prison break sequel The Escapists 2, which will all launch for the system this year.
The self-explanatory Blaster Master Zero, 2D fighter Pocket Rumble, ghoulish adventure Flipping Death, action game Mr Shifty, RPG Stardew Valley and Advance Wars-esque strategy title WarGroove are just some of the other games announced.
