Vlambeer bringing Nuclear Throne, Super Crate Box, and a new project to Switch
Most developers featured in this morning’s Nindies Showcase presentation only showed off one game coming to Switch. Vlambeer showed off three.
Vlambeer, a Dutch indie studio consisting of Jan Willem Nijman and Rami Ismail, will be bringing three games to Switch: Nuclear Throne, Super Crate Box, and an all new experimental project called Vlambeer Arcade.
Nuclear Throne is a stunning classic roguelike top-down shooter, featuring a tonne of different weapons, abilities, and enemies. It previously released on PC, PS4, and Vita back in 2015, so this is the first time it’s made its way to a Nintendo console.
Nuclear Throne is available to purchase on the Switch eShop right now, where it’ll set you back $19.95 AUD.
Super Crate Box, on the other hand, is an addictive arcade shoot-em-up with platforming elements, that previously released on PC, iOS, Vita, and the Commodore 64 (no really). You’re tasked with surviving for as long as possible, using only the weapons found in randomised crates that spawn on the map.
Super Crate Box is scheduled to launch on the Switch in April 2019.
The third game in Vlambeer’s Switch lineup is not just one game, but an experimental collection of games in one package called Vlambeer Arcade. Vlambeer Arcade will be an ever-growing collection of bite-sized games, with new games being announced and added to the package as time goes on. The first of these small games is a title called Ultrabugs, which looks to be a very stylish, modern take on Space Invaders.
There’s no release date for Vlambeer Arcade yet, aside from a vague “2019” window. There’s also no trailer yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know if we hear anything new.
