This Week's Switch Port News: Friday, February 8, 2019


News by Matt C.

Commander Keen in Keen Dreams coming to Nintendo Switch is probably one of the bigger surprises of the week. With no announcements or any sort of fanfare, the game just dropped onto the eShop this morning, bringing back a lot of fond memories for anyone who grew up playing Commander Keen games in the early '90s.

This month, Switch players will also get to check out Yume Nikki: Dream Diary, a surreal psychological horror game by indie creator Kikiyama. The original Yume Nikki was an RPG Maker game that became a cult favourite in the 2000s; Dream Diary is a full remake of that game.

What are you most looking forward to?

(Important note: we're not including announcements of Switch as a platform for upcoming games, which would usually get their own news coverage anyway. This is list is purely for announcements of Switch ports / re-releases and the like.)
