Nintendo Switch Users Surprised With Stealth Special Release
Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite and Nintendo Switch OLED users have been surprised with a special stealth release. It’s a slow time for the Nintendo Switch. Apart from Pokemon Legends: Arceus, every major release so far this year has skipped the platform, and Nintendo itself doesn’t have many notable releases until the end of this year. Switch users have Kirby and the Forgotten Land coming later this month, but Kirby is far from a Tier A Nintendo property. Thankfully, April looks a bit better for Switch users with the likes of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, MLB The Show 22, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition, The House of the Dead: Remakeand Star Wars: The Force Unleashed all coming to the Nintendo platform. It’s not The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 Where Bayonet 3, but it’s better than how the first three months of the year have treated Switch fans. We are not yet in April. That said, the aforementioned stealth release may hold fans back until it is.
The stealth release comes in the way of Girls Make Games, an American organization founded in 2014 with the aim of helping girls pursue careers in the video game industry, an industry historically dominated by men. As for the game itself, it’s called Shredded Secretsit was created by college kids and it’s available now on the Nintendo eShop for $5 out of nowhere.
