Bastion and Transistor making their way onto Nintendo Switch soon

More On: Bastion Transistor

Nintendo is announcing a host of indie games coming to Switch and two of the highlights are bonafide classics: Supergiant Games' Bastion and Transistor. It's weird to think that Bastion is 7 years old but when it arrived in 2011 its challenging isometric hack-n-slash gameplay and dynamic narration put it on the map as one of second wave of great indie successes. 2014's Transistor was an unorthodox followup but its unique take on strategy combat and compelling cyberpunk story about a young woman who has her voice stolen made it just as memorable as its predecessor.

I never finished Bastion back in the day and Transistor has been staring back at me from my Steam library for years now, so maybe I'll give these classics their due when the former hits the eShop on September 13th and the latter arrives on November 1st. These are both great additions on the Switch and they'll be naturals for portable play.
