Switch: details on controls for World of Goo / Human Resource Machine / Little Inferno on Switch, more

A few weeks ago, Tomorrow Corporation announced they were bringing not one, not two, but three different games to the Nintendo Switch, and at launch to boot (if everything goes well). In an interview with Nintendo Life, published earlier today, the developers talk about the controls for them, and share some additional details.

Here’s the rundown on the controls for all three games:

  • Handheld Mode: you can use the touchscreen;  you can use your fingers to control all three games.
  • TV Mode: you can use the Joy-Cons (sometimes both);
  • Tabletop Mode: you can use both.

They also reveal that World of Goo is getting some local multiplayer, which is great news for players who like to share the fun with their friends… especially with the Nintendo Switch coming with two compatible controllers right out of the box. Even better: the developers are also trying to add local multiplayer to Human Resource Machine and Little Inferno too, but nothing is guaranteed so far.

Regarding the price, Tomorrow Corporation was quite… cryptic:

Each of our games will be cheaper than … an arugula salad in San Francisco. And you’ll be able to get all three of our titles for less than the price of some of the other titles.

They’re also looking into a possible bundle for all three games, since many players have been requesting one. Unfortunately, it looks like there may be some technical hurdles preventing such a bundle to be released…

Finally, the developers confirm that they’re still planning to release World of Goo, Human Resource Machine, and Little Inferno on the Nintendo Switch at launch (on March 3rd), but since they’re a team of three, it really is a race against time for them.

Make sure to check out the full interview over at Nintendo Life: it goes into details into what Tomorrow Corporation have been up to lately, World of Goo, and more.

World of Goo, Human Resource Machine, and Little Inferno (Switch – eShop) will be released on March 3rd in Europe and North America.
