Matt Thorson, developer behind TowerFall & the recent hit Celeste, confirmed that TowerFall is still in development for Nintendo Switch. Though, no release date is currently known.
TowerFall for the Nintendo Switch: it's still going to happen! In fact, I'm working on it right now. As soon as we have a release date, we'll share it 🙂

“TowerFall is an archery combat platformer for up to 4 players. It’s a local party game centering around hilarious, intense versus matches. The core mechanics are simple and accessible, but combat is fast and fierce. It’s best played competitively with friends, cross-legged on the floor within punching distance of each other.”
While I haven’t gotten the chance to play TowerFall yet, I can’t wait for its release on Switch. It’s great to see the system getting strong indie support, and this announcement continues that trend.
