Back in May, Nintendo revealed that indie action-adventure game Minit is coming to Switch. The reveal initially only confirmed a Japanese release, but since then publisher Devolver Digital has confirmed that it’s coming to the West. Switch owners will be able to get their hands on this unique title next week, as Devolver has confirmed that it’s launching on the Switch eShop on August 9th.
If you haven’t checked Minit out yet, you’re missing out! Minit‘s core gameplay is similar to others in the genre, like Zelda, but with a big twist. In Minit, players can only survive for 60 seconds at a time. You spawn. You explore as quickly as you can. Then you die a minute later and try again. Players can keep items that they’ve collected on their previous run, allowing you to progress a little further each time as you become more familiar with the territory and discover what you need to do to succeed.
