While neither are purely exclusive to the Nintendo Switch, publisher Devolver Digital had a presence at Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase livestream to showcase two of their upcoming games – one set to launch next month and the other far off in 2023. Both games are currently console exclusives, but will also be made available on the Windows PC.
The first of these games is Card Shark, developed by Nerial, which is due to go live on 2 June 2022, and is pitched as an “18th Century European tale of deception”. You can take a gander at the game’s release date trailer below:
Secondly is the reveal of Doinksoft’s upcoming action-adventure Gunbrella. A noir punk game set in a world dependent on a rapidly diminishing natural resource, it is set to launch on both the Nintendo Switch and Windows PC at an unspecified date in 2023.
Players take the role of a gruff woodsman on a quest for revenge, armed with the mysterious Gunbrella: a firearm that doubles as an umbrella. His investigation becomes entangled with the inner workings of ghouls and gangsters, cops and cultists, and the fallout of corporate exploitation.
Engage in side-scrolling action combat while exploring a diverse assortment of locations and interrogating bizarre characters. Use the Gunbrella to glide, swing, dash, and dive, and gather scrap and spare parts to trade for different munitions and upgrades. Investigate cult kidnappings and trash gangs, and uncover the mysteries of the supernatural as wraiths and monstrosities materialise in places where blood has been shed…
