Nintendo Download: Brotherly Love

It’s a good week for indies on the Nintendo Switch, as Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, American Fugitive, Back in 1995 and more all arrive.

A little old, a little new

A mix of fresh titles hit the Switch this week, with really no triple-A stuff in sight. Though some of the indies that are arriving are kind of premium in their own right.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons isn’t new really, but it’s new to the Switch. Originally launched in 2013, the game follows siblings on a quest, the hook being that the game is co-op with either two players or just one single player. It’s also still a good looking title with a neat fantasy “fairy tale” plot.

Past that one, there’s also American Fugitive. A game that is set in the 1980s in a small US town, American Fugitive immediately recalls the glory days of the pre-III GTA games. It has much the same aesthetic and gameplay, though looks a heck of a lot better and seems to have a more serious, less crime-centric plot.

Then there’s Back in 1995. Much like American Fugitive, Back in 1995 is a sort-of retro game. It’s crafted to have the look of a Silent Hill game from the earliest days of that series. Not that it’s a gimmick game in any other way, because it certainly seems as though there’s a cool story being told.

As for what else is hitting this week scroll on down and have a look.
