Two games have been given release dates for Nintendo Switch. You know this from the headline alone, obviously.

Max: Curse of the Brotherhood and Night in the Woods will be released in March and February, respectively, on Nintendo Switch.

Puzzle-platformer Max: Curse of the Brotherhood was originally developed by the Press Play – now Flashbulb Games – which Microsoft shuttered along with Lionhead Studios in 2016.

It’s a sequel to Press Play’s Max & the Magic Marker, which sees Max using a spell to get rid of his brother Felix after the younger sibling annoys him. After his brother is pulled through a portal, Max realizes his mistake, and jumps into the portal to rescue Felix from the magical, but hostile world.

Max: Curse of the Brotherhood will be released on Switch at retail March 23 for £24.99 / €29.99 / $29.99.

Night in the Woods, the story-focused, single-player adventure game from Infinite Fall, will be released on February 1.

If you are unfamiliar with the game, it puts the player in the shoes of college dropout Mae who returned to her hometown to find a friend has gone missing. It’s a rather interesting title, and one of our 2017 Games of the Year.
