Earlier this year we saw the release of Loop Hero. The indie title from small developer Four Quarters and publisher Devolver Digital was a unique take on the ‘idler’ game. The game did very well for itself, considering its humble beginnings, and has only been on PC since its initial launch. Later this year, that will change.
As announced in the most recent Indie World mini-Direct from Nintendo, Loop Hero will be coming to the Switch. There isn’t much in the video announcement, which you can see below. So whether or not the game will have any additional content isn’t clear, but presumably it will at least have all the updates the current PC version has.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, it follows an unnamed hero as they awaken in a world that has been largely destroyed with no memories of the past outside that the damage was caused by a being known as The Lich. You move around on a set path and set down cards that transform the area around you until you eventually face the boss of the area, while encountering various characters and creatures as you unravel the mystery of your new world.
Loop Hero is available now on PC and will release on the Nintendo Switch this holiday season. There is no word on other platforms as of now.
