Hello Neighbor and five other tinyBuild games are headed to the Switch in 2018
tinyBuild announced a couple of days ago that they’d showing off 6 games they plan to bring to the Switch, and early this morning, they well and truly delivered.
In a short live-stream presentation filled with technical difficulties (it’s okay, we still love you!), tinyBuild indeed announced 6 games coming to the Switch, all of which are scheduled to launch in 2018. One them’s even coming this month!
The big story, of course, is that the wildly popular boundary-crossing simulator Hello Neighbor will be launching on the Switch sometime later in the year. Hello Neighbor shot to popularity during its beta phase late last year when some of the biggest YouTubers in the gaming sphere took to the game. The game finally launched in full in December on the Xbox One and PC, but soon you can invade your neighbour’s privacy whenever you please, on the go, crossing boundaries in ways you never thought imaginable, all thanks to the Switch.
We’ve included a brief description and trailer for each of the featured games below, as well as the known release windows. The tinyBuild website includes pricing information in USD only, though it should give a pretty good indicator as to what we’ll be paying across the pond. As always, we’ll be sure to keep you updated as more information becomes available.
The Final Station – February 2018
The world is over. But it’s not quite over for you… at least, not yet. And now that you’ve got thousands of tonnes of locomotive at your disposal, you’ve got the definite advantage over the infected hordes. This is The Final Station. The real question is whether or not you’ll help the survivors get to their destinations…. or let them die and loot their bodies. Sometimes people can be more trouble than they’re worth.
Includes Final Traitor DLC
Clustertruck – March 2018
Clustertruck is a new kind of platformer on-top of a speeding highway! Use agility and acrobatics through insane levels in a game of “the floor is lava” on top of unpredictable, speeding trucks! The game only gets harder when dangers such as swinging hammers, lasers and flamethrowers are added!
Punch Club – May 2018
Punch Club is a boxing tycoon management game with multiple branching story lines. Your goal is clear, but how you get there depends on whether you want to legitimately climb the rankings, or take the more ridiculous, shady route. Along the way you’ll want to focus your talents. Will you take the Way of the Tiger, the Way of the Turtle, or the Way of the Bear? Your strength, accuracy and agility all depends on whichever Way enlightens your path. Do you have stripes, or flippers?
Includes The Dark Fist DLC
Party Hard – US Summer/AU Winter 2018
In Party Hard, you play as someone who is really tired of their neighbours having loud parties. Instead of calling the police, you decide it’s a better idea to take everyone down using your faithful knife and the environment. The story of this tactical strategy follows a series of killings at parties throughout the USA.
Streets of Rogue – 2018
Streets of Rogue is a rogue-lite about player choice, freedom, and anarchic fun. The game takes inspiration from fast-paced top-down rogue-lites like Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne, and adds free-form, experimentation-driven, emergent gameplay elements of RPGs like Deus Ex. Rather than taking place in a dungeon, the game is set in a functioning, procedurally generated city, where complex AI informs denizens from all walks of life, who are just trying to get by in their daily activities.
Hello Neighbor – 2018
Hello Neighbor is a stealth horror game about sneaking into your neighbor’s house to figure out what horrible secrets he’s hiding in the basement. You play against an advanced AI that learns from your every move. Really enjoying climbing through that backyard window? Expect a bear trap there. Sneaking through the front door? There’ll be cameras there soon. Trying to escape? The Neighbor will find a shortcut and catch you.
Releasing both digitally on the eShop and at retail
