Minit, The Messenger, and Dragon Marked For Death are all getting physical releases on Switch


Downwell too

If there is one trend I absolutely love with this generation of game, it's the rise of small production publishers that are giving indie games a shot at retail release. Limited Run Games is probably the biggest name in this space, there are other companies doing God's work here. Fangamer produced physical copies of Undertale, Dead Cells reached retailers because of merge, and Owlboy is sitting idly on my shelf between my copy of de Blob and Yoku's Island Express thanks to SOEDESCO.

There's also Special Reserve Games, which announced this week retail releases of indie darlings Downwell, Minit, and The Messenger. All three titles will see physical releases next year for Nintendo Switch while the former two will also have discs printed for PlayStation 4. If you've been holding out for physical releases of these titles, your patience is about to pay off.

Meanwhile, Inti Creates's Dragon Marked for Death is also getting a retail release courtesy of Nighthawk Interactive. The physical edition of this game will include all four playable characters, a point we have to make because of how the developer is choosing to handle the digital release of the game. Dragon Marked for Death will feature two versions on the eShop, one that includes the Empress and Warrior characters known as the "Frontline Fighters" pack, while the other includes the Shinobi and Witch characters in the "Advanced Fighters" pack. Each pack will retail for $14.99 each.

Inti Creates also announced a delay on Dragon Marked for Death. The game, originally set to launch on December 13, will now release on January 31. The move was made to shorten the gap between digital and physical releases of the game.
