There are a lot of great indie games coming up for the Switch eShop in the future and now we can add the impressive looking Anew: The Distant Light to the list. It has just met its $35,000 Kickstarter goal for the Switch release.
Here's what developer Resonator had to say about the Switch port:
This is a commitment to full due diligence in planning for development of a Switch port. Their indie program currently appears to be very limited and they are not accepting many games. We anticipate that it will open for more developers at some point, but we will aggressively pursue it regardless. We will acquire dev kits, attempt to establish a developer relationship for the platform like we already have for PlayStation and Xbox, and we will analyze the hardware for technical constraints that we need to optimize around. Doing this early makes a Switch port much more likely and faster to arrive.
In the game you play as a child born of a dying Earth, sent 20 light years into space to save his home. This single player action game takes inspiration from Metroid, Cave Story and even Dark Souls, so the end result should be very interesting to say the least.
The game is being created by veteran developers Steve Copeland and Jeff Spoonhower who have previously worked on Bioshock, Borderlands and Uncharted franchises, to name but a few, with an original soundtrack by Wilbert Roget II.
