“Into the Breach” first launched on PC in February and was well-received by critics. It allows players to pilot powerful mechs to defend humanity against the Vek infestation across a series of randomly generated islands.
Nintendo also gave fans a sneak peek at numerous indie titles coming in the next few months. “Hyper Light Drifter: Special Edition” launches on Switch on Sept. 6 and is available to pre-order today. This version of the critically-acclaimed action-adventure game includes a Switch exclusive outfit that helps players locate hidden items. It also has new weapons like the Crystal Shot and Blade Caster.
