Over the Moon, the developers behind indie darling The Fall, have announced today that its sequel will make the jump to the Nintendo Switch. The Fall: Unbound was originally planned to be released on the Wii U but the developer has cited the fact that Nintendo has moved on from the platform as the reason why they’ve ditched that particular version. The Fall: Unbound is scheduled for the third quarter of 2017.
We’re coming to the Nintendo Switch! This is great news obviously, but it also appears that Nintendo is switching (hah) focus to promoting that platform over the Wii U. For that reason we’ve decided to focus on resources on supporting the Switch instead of the Wii U. As indies, we simply don’t have the luxury of supporting a platform that’s clearly being sunsetted. I was confident that we’d make it in time, but everyone’s moving on to greener pastures and we’d be fools to stay behind.
