As to what these names are, we could only speculate. I’d love to watch Xeodrifter get some love on the console, it’s charming little Metroidvania title that I got to experience on the PS Vita a few decades ago. I think the title would fit nicely alongside the Switch’s fantastic list of indie titles that pay homage to the classic Nintendo games which motivated them.
Many indie games such as Kamiko along with VOEZ have seen success on the Switch. Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap earnings on the Switch were higher than the rest of the platforms the title released on, collectively. It’ll be interesting to determine if more indie developers find the same success moving into 2018 as a growing number of programmers jump on board.
If you want to obtain a taste of everything Atooi can do, check out the Mutant Mudds Collection on Switch right now, or if you’re willing to dust off the old PS Vita, why not look into Xeodrifter so it is possible to see why it would fit so nicely on the console?
