Outer Wilds On Switch “Is Still Happening”

In today's Annapurna Interactive Showcase, the developers of the gorgeous, stupidly incredible Outer Wilds said that the game is still coming to Switch. "You did not collectively hallucinate our announcement of Outer Wilds for the Nintendo Switch," said Mobius' spokesperson in the showcase. "It's possible that we were a bit over-optimistic on the time frame. At this point, it's possible that we just fundamentally misunderstand the Gregorian calendar." Still, no exact update — although they also simultaneously announced an Xbox Series S|X and PS5 launch for the game on September 15th (in 60FPS, no less!), so here's hoping us Switch players don't get completely left behind. Outer Wilds was first announced for the Nintendo Switch in February 2021 in a Nintendo Direct, for a Summer 2021 re...

Xbox Remaster ‘Toy Soldiers HD’ Delayed For The Third Time On Switch

Toy Soldiers HD, an upcoming remaster of the Xbox Live Arcade game, just can't seem to catch a break. After being announced in May 2021 for an August 2021 release, the game was delayed until October of the same year owing to leaderboard issues. The developers said at the time that they were "absolutely positive" that they would release all versions on October 21st, 2021, which was true for all versions except the Switch. Unfortunately, the Nintendo Switch release was pushed back, and it wasn't until July 2022 that the developers felt confident enough to pin down an exact release date: August 5th, 2022. "We share your frustration. We pushed ourselves to achieve a simultaneous release. We believed we could do it."- Accelerate Games, following the Switch delay announcement in October 202...
