Astro Duel Deluxe

On Monday, we found out that Astro Duel Deluxe was releasing on the Nintendo Switch on May 30th in North America. And as we expected, it’s releasing on the same day in Europe, where it will cost 13.99€.

Since the game will also be playable in Japanese (alongside English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese), it will be a worldwide release. The game will require 278MB of free space, and can be played using the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.

It’s not secret that the Wii U sold pretty poorly, and as a result, received poor support from third-party developers. It did get a fair bit of support from indies, but nothing much compared to the competition. And yet, some developers did manage to find success on the failing console, and Rain Games is one of them.

In an interview with Gamasutra, Peter Wingaard Meldahl (CEO) explained that the Wii U actually ended up the most profitable platform for the game, which was their very first one.

One of the reason the game was so successful is because of the visibility it got on the Nintendo eShop. Since there were less indie games released on Wii U, games automatically got more exposure due to lesser competition. In Teslagrad’s case, the game stayed on the top two slots of the Nintendo eShop for a couple of weeks, which wouldn’t have happened on any other platform.
