Bastion & Transistor on Nintendo Switch!

By Supergiant Games August 28th, 2018

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!
