As the Nintendo Switch continues to do better than anyone thought, the console is quickly becoming a home for many independent developers and publishers. HandyGames, a German developer, and publisher, has announced that they will be bringing eleven of their games to the console. Better yet, one of those games is already available.
The main focus of the announcement is Aces of the Luftwaffe: Squadron, a four-player SHMUP that has already been launched for the console. The game sees the Nazis attacking the United States during an alternative World War 2, and up to four pilots going against them to fight them back. The game features some weird and exciting enemies to fight and an RPG system with skill trees, so you can improve your aircraft. The game is available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch for $14.99.
The other game the announcement focuses on is Townsmen, a medieval city building game. The game is already available on mobile phones and PC, but HandyGames is seeking to rework it slightly for the console release. Notably, they want to rework the UI and controls for use with the Joy-Cons. Townsmen doesn’t have a release date for the Nintendo Switch yet, but it should be expected to arrive early 2018.
In addition to those two titles, HandyGames are also bringing the following titles to the Nintendo Switch:
- Clouds & Sheep 2
- Dynamite Fishing
- Panzer Panic
- Four of HandyGames’ mobile strategy titles, including 1943 Deadly Desert and 1944 Burning Bridges
- Two secret projects that will be announced soon.
Of these games, only Clouds & Sheep 2 and Dynamite Fishing have release windows, with both games expected for the second quarter of 2018, and Panzer Panic for some time after those two games release. HandyGames has noted that the current lineup is focusing on multiplayer action titles.
