We have another quick update for you, since today we release a little DLC to the public and also we’d like to have a word about a Switch version.
Ninja Skin DLC released
The Ninja DLC is now available on Steam! Use it to give Lea a stealthy ninja outfit. You can see it when moving around, during battle, and even in the menu screen!
I mean, she already runs like a ninja, so it was obvious we had to add this skin eventually.
Some background: The Ninja skin was one of the rewards for our Indiegogo backers and has been available for them for a few months already. We decided to release it on Steam a bit later, to keep it exclusive for our backers at least for some time.
About that Switch version
For quite some time now we’ve received a number of requests from people asking us to port CrossCode to one particular platform.
Everyday single day.
Yes, we heard you. You want to play CrossCode on your Switch.
We get where you’re coming from. Our game has been inspired by so many Nintendo classics, so it would feel right at home on the Switch. And obviously, it would be amazing to play CrossCode on the go.
However, the reality is this: porting CrossCode to Switch is really difficult. As some of you might be aware, CrossCode is written in HTML5 which you cannot run natively on the Switch (just like most consoles). This means a LOT of things have to be reprogrammed/rewritten. And this is especially challenging on the Switch which doesn’t provide the hardware capabilities of other current-gen consoles. That’s why we still can’t make any promise!
Now… We’ve given this answer many, many times. But who knows, maybe it’s too technical and that’s why people just won’t stop asking so we’ll simplify it a bit:
Sorry but CrossCode will be coming to Switch when Hedgehags learn to fly.
Anyway, this is now our answer to all those Switch requests for the time being!
You can keep asking if you want (and you probably will). The answer will be the same.
Anyway, that’s all for now! Until next time!
