Last week, it was announced that the popular GameMaker Studio 2 engine would offer an option to export directly to the Nintendo Switch starting this Summer, which is going to make it much easier for indies to port their games to the console.

Abylight Studios and Locomalito announced that both Cursed Castilla and Super Hydorah would be released on Nintendo Switch “as soon as possible”.

Super Daryl Deluxe
Earlier this week, Dan & Gary Games announced that Super Daryl was headed to the Nintendo Switch, on April 10th. It will cost 19.99€ / $19.99. Here’s all you need to know about it:
Water Falls High School, of course, is a perfectly normal multidimensional high school. Its classrooms literally whisk students away to alternate worlds coinciding with their subjects, where kids can do anything from arguing the value of capitalism with Joseph Stalin in History to offering a fist bump to Oedipus in Literature. You know, just like every other school.
What’s not normal are the missing students, the locked down classrooms, and the shadowy principal that no one has actually seen. Not to mention something about a secret that nearly destroyed the world 40 years ago.
Enter Daryl Whitelaw, the poorly-postured mouth-breather who just wants to make friends that has found himself the unlikely hero of this story. With the aid of a self-help book, Daryl can attain more than 45 powers, from thrashing enemies with an axe three times his weight to cleaning their faces up with a mop. Abilities can be customized and upgraded, making for endless playstyles and combinations.
While he’s got combat covered, Daryl’s going to need some help making friends. Luckily, he can complete side quests to increase his social rank, gain new passive abilities, and be less of a hopeless mess. Daryl can piece together some sweet gear to beef himself up, but at the end of the day he’s still rocking his snazzy headband and mullet.
Fashion icon he’s not, but it’s up to Daryl to find out what’s happening at Water Falls High School and what connection it has to that mysterious something or another that happened four decades ago. You know, the one that almost destroyed the world. Yeah, that one.
Super Daryl Deluxe (Switch – eShop) comes out on April 10th in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
