We were so excited to let you know Bastion is just a download away for your Nintendo Switch, we made this handy image!

Get it now on the Nintendo eShop! ($14.99)


Bastion
is our original action RPG set in a lush imaginative world, in which players must create and fight for civilization’s last refuge as a mysterious narrator marks their every move. To date, it's sold millions of copies worldwide and earned more than 100 industry accolades. We faithfully adapted and optimized this latest version for Nintendo's wonderful gaming console, so it's perfect for your living room or for playing on the go.

The first version of the game launched waaay back in 2011, when we were still working from the living room of a house! It's been a real treat for us to revisit the world and rediscover the secrets of the Calamity after all this time, and we hope you feel much the same. And, thank you! Your support over the years has made everything possible for us.

We're thrilled to announce that, by popular demand (and there has been a lot), Bastion and Transistor are coming soon to the Switch! Each title has been faithfully adapted and optimized for Nintendo's latest game console, and will soon be available on the Nintendo eShop.

Play them at PAX! PAX West takes place Aug. 31 - Sep. 3 in Seattle. If you're there, visit us at booth 1520 to try both titles before they launch on the Nintendo eShop! We'll also have new Bastion and Transistor merchandise.

About Bastion

Our debut game is an original action RPG set in a lush imaginative world, in which players must create and fight for civilization’s last refuge as a mysterious narrator marks their every move. To date, it's sold millions of copies worldwide and earned more than 100 industry awards and accolades.

Bastion arrives on the Nintendo eShop on September 13, 2018 for $14.99.

About Transistor

Our second title is a sci-fi themed action RPG that invites you to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as you fight through a stunning futuristic city. Transistor likewise was a critical and commercial hit, also earning more than 100 awards and accolades!

Transistor arrives on the Nintendo eShop on November 1, 2018 for $19.99.

Bastion and Transistor for the Switch mark the first time our games will be available on a Nintendo platform. Several of us from our small team grew up playing classic Nintendo game systems, dating all the way back to the Nintendo Entertainment System in the '80s, so it feels good to have finally had a chance to bring our games to Nintendo's latest and in many ways greatest console. We're grateful to our long-time collaborators at BlitWorks and Confetti for their efforts bringing over Bastion and Transistor, respectively.

* * *

P.S.: With Bastion and Transistor coming to the Switch, you might be wondering, what about our third and latest game, Pyre? The thing is, our games are built on our own custom tech so it's not a small undertaking for us to bring them to new platforms. So, while we haven't ruled anything out for the future, currently we don't have plans to bring Pyre to other platforms. We appreciate the interest, and are looking forward to seeing the response to Bastion and Transistor on the Switch!

Well this one sure took us long enough, seeing as Bastion just celebrated its seventh birthday on July 20! But, from the better-late-than-never department, we're pleased to announce this beautiful new boxed edition of our very first game! Pre-order today for the PlayStation 4 or PS Vita.

This isn't the final packaging but it should be pretty close!

We're grateful to the folks at Limited Run Games for collaborating with us on this latest version. The game itself is identical to what's available for download on the respective platforms -- it's the recipient of more than 100 industry awards, and to date it's sold more than 4 million copies worldwide. And now, you can have it in a physical box for posterity, complete with a brand-new, jam-packed, full-color instruction booklet we created exclusively for this release.

Here's an excerpt from the all-new instruction manual for Bastion.

We're connoisseurs of classic game instruction manuals here at Supergiant, so it was a real pleasure to get to design one in the spirit of the booklets we grew up reading cover-to-cover.

To those who've been asking us for a physical edition of Bastion over the years, thank you for all your interest and support, and we hope you love the result! And, happy seventh birthday to our first game!!

Ever since our studio started back in 2009, we've mostly relied on social media such as Twitter to stay in touch with our players and keep you posted about what we're up to. Today we'd like to let you in on a simple alternative: our mailing list, the Supergiant Blast! Sign up right here in just a few seconds.

We've made limited use of an email mailing list over the years for announcements and special offers. With the Supergiant Blast, we want to bring you an even closer look at what we're working on. Our mailing list subscribers will be the first to hear about any new games we're making, and will get access to exclusive deals on our original merchandise and inside looks at our studio.

We're kicking off the Supergiant Blast later this month! Sign up by June 25 if you want to get the first installment. We've also updated each of our games on Steam to include quick links to our sign-up page. Beyond that, we've got a lot of exciting stuff in the works here these days! We'll be looking forward to telling you all about it in the weeks and months to come.

Recent Accolades for Pyre

Pyre met with some of the highest critical acclaim of any of our games at launch, and more recently, we've felt honored and humbled to see it earn its way into various Game of the Year discussions, such as these:

Nominated for Best PC Game, Best Art Direction, Best Story, and Most Innovative -- IGN Best of 2017

Nominated for Best Independent Game -- The Game Awards

We want to make games that stick with folks in a positive way long after they're finished playing, so we're grateful to see Pyre come up for consideration at the end of a year that's been positively brimming with outstanding games.

Onward!

Pyre's success also means we get to keep going as a small independent studio, and keep doing what we love. Our foremost goal with each game we make is for it to do well enough that we can stick together as a team, and push forward in our quest to keep making games that spark your imagination like the games you played as a kid. We're grateful to have another shot at creating something like that, and excited to delve into the new year as we figure it out. We hope you'll join us for whatever we come up with next!

Pyre now features full text translations in simplified Chinese, Russian, French, German, and Spanish! This is an automatic update for the Steam version. The PlayStation 4 version will be updated in early 2018.

We’re grateful to our players around the world for their patience and support on what we knew would be a much bigger and more complex translation project than we've done for our previous games. In addition to having a much larger word count than Bastion or Transistor, Pyre’s interactive narrative means there are hundreds of millions of possible content combinations to consider in the translation process.

We hope this new update means many more of you out there will be able to fully enjoy our latest adventure. Thank you for playing Pyre!
