11 bit studios announces plans to support Nintendo Switch with four games

The indie developer and publisher will release several promising titles over the months leading into early 2019.

11 bit studios has announced plans to publish four digital titles on Nintendo Switch, starting with a couple of fall releases and proceeding from there through early 2019. The games hail from a variety of genres and developers.

First up is Moonlighter, an action-RPG about an adventurous shopkeeper with dreams of being something more. You'll need to manage your business but also head out to dungeons for a hands-on approach to resource gathering. Roguelite elements are featured in the game, which is already available on PlayStation 4 and met with a favorable response from critics. A physical edition on Switch will come in late September, with the announced digital version to follow this Fall.

This War of Mine, a familiar indie darling depicting the struggle of civilians in a war-torn city, is due to reach Nintendo Switch this November. Deep Silver will cooperate as a publisher, and the digital "Complete Edition" will include all DLC released thus far, as well as any content released at a later date.

Then there is Beat Cop, an adventure sim set in New York City. It takes its cues from 80s cop shows and casts the player as a policeman named Jack Kelly who has been framed for murder. You'll have to investigate to find the culprit, while navigating the streets of Brooklynn and encountering dark humor at every step.

Finally, Children of Morta is due in early 2019 and is described in today's press release as a "narrative-driven roguelike," which isn't quite the usual approach. Players can adventure alone or as a cooperative team, as they fight to defend their legacy from the forces of evil.

Crunching Koalas has been assigned the task of porting This War of Mine and Beat Cop to Switch, while the Moonlighter and Children of Morta ports are in development at the studios from which they originate. Check the embedded trailer above for an early look at the games in action, and check back later to see if we have anything more to show.
