Four new games have today stealth released across Nintendo Switch, Switch Lite, and Switch OLED platforms. Earlier this morning, Nintendo held its latest “Indie World” showcase to highlight a number of indie titles that would soon be coming to Switch. Although most of these games seen in the presentation weren’t slated to launch until later this year or at some point in 2024, four of them happened to surprisingly roll out today.
As of this moment, Shadows Over Loathing, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach, Teslagrad Remastered, and Teslagrad 2 are all available to be downloaded on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Previously, Nintendo had confirmed that some of these games would be coming to Switch, but hadn’t provided specifics about their launch dates. As it turns out, though, all of them have now become playable, which makes for a nice mid-week bump on the eShop.
To learn more about all four of these new Switch titles, you can check out descriptions and trailers for each down below.
Shadows Over Loathing
“Mobsters, monsters, and mysteries — welcome to Shadows Over Loathing, the shady side of an already black-and-white world, and a follow-up to the award-winning West of Loathing.
Explore a sprawling open world chock full of danger, quests, puzzles, and stick figures in this single-player comedy adventure/RPG set in the prohibition era of the Loathing universe. See how many enemies you can stuff into a phone booth as the athletic Pig Skinner, control the curds and whey of the cosmos as the cunning Cheese Wizard, or march to the beat of your own inscrutable purposes as the hip Jazz Agent.”
