Playdead’s Limbo and Inside Hit Nintendo Switch Later this Month
Two classic indie platformers are arriving on June 28th.
The Nintendo Switch has quickly become a huge success all on its own, but its indie selection has been a massive boost for hardware and software sales. It feels like every independent developer is scrambling to get their games out on Switch, with its portability adding a lot to the experience of the game. This continues today with Playdead announcing that their critically acclaimed puzzle platformers Limbo and Inside would arrive on June 28th.
The launch will hit worldwide at the same time, so no matter what region you live in, get ready for some seriously depressing games to come your way. Limbo and Inside are easily some of the best titles to release in the last decade, featuring a unique art style and very distinct gameplay.
You’ll be platforming through a series of levels, but there will also be puzzles and a robust physics system to deal with. Limbo is the more traditional game of the two, launching in 2010 to near universal acclaim. The game helped show how good digital-only titles could be at a time when consoles were still just flirting with the idea of forgoing retail discs.
Inside took what Limbo did and went even further, with a compelling but subtle narrative that weaves its worldbuilding throughout the game. Whether you just pick up one game or both, you’re in for a treat when Limbo and Inside hit Nintendo Switch on June 28th.
