Last week was the first collective show of guerrillas in summer. Yesterday (June 12) brought another stream-“Day 2”-full of independent goodies (the event is IGN’s Summer of Games). As before, there are currently many projects that are only confirmed for PC or specific platforms, but we have reviewed the announcement and selected 11 fascinating Switch games for you to watch.
Formerly known as Deathstick, this is a fairly promising 2D Metroidvania-the name combines two Japanese words: 赤い “Akai”, which means “red” and bird “Tori”, which means “bird”. You switch between parallel universes, exploring and fighting while you are trying to save the world; this video is sure to interest us.
This game developed by Idoz is published by Humble Games, so it is likely to become the highly anticipated Switch eShop version. This top-down “Intense Bullet Hell Action” game has simple fantasy settings and some fairly clear pixel-style visual effects.
Another interesting title is published by Red Art Games. This is an adventure game that promises “emotional narrative” and interesting characters. The visual effects look quite fascinating, and there are some battles to keep things going; obviously it is not far away.
We caught a glimpse of a title at the recent Indie Live Expo, Batola: The Lost Haven is an interesting science fiction story played through an isometric angle. It is really interesting to mix hack’n slash and bullet hell, and it must have a unique sense of style.
It looks like a newly released title, this is a 2D action title in which you can play the Earl of Bloodvayne, but obviously you will choose more characters on your journey. Look forward to pixelated blood and action.
The game can introduce players to new story ideas and culture very well, and maybe the black book will achieve this. Originally planned for 2020, it seems to combine exploration with storytelling and card-based combat; it is based on Slavic mythology because humans “live with mythical creatures.”
This is “an action role-playing game with combat, stealth, dialogue, inventory, attributes, skills, item making and psi capabilities”-there were many things happening at the time. We really like the visual effects of this game and the undeniably grim world, and hope they can get it out after the dark winter.
Published by Thunderful and developed by Dejima Games, it was immediately noticeable. A 2D title with gorgeous visual effects, you can solve a series of fires, but a reliable axe and water pipe, although there will be upgrade options. This action looks very interesting, and we really want to know how it performs on the Switch. [NOTE: Plenty have said this is coming to Switch, but both the publisher and developer just say ‘consoles’ in official press kits etc, so we’ll keep an eye out for definitive platform announcements]
Although there is no shortage of top-down pizel art action games in the world, we really like the look of the Hunt the Night by Moonlight game. It seems to have some puzzles and depth of RPG style, and the visual appearance and design are great; from the appearance of the lens, it will have a story and some unforgettable scenes.
This rather fascinating 2D platform game has now been confirmed on Nintendo Switch; it is inspired by Japanese mythology and is undoubtedly a very cute atmosphere. It looks interesting to use different costumes for different abilities.
This is definitely a game for YouTube / Twitch, because it is a four-player cooperative game where you and some partners try to sail chaotically and sail in various seemingly uncertain oceans. If you pass the Joy-Con controller with some friends on Switch, it will definitely be fun.
You have it-tell us in the comments which of these games you are most interested in!
