Sony Is Releasing A Nintendo Switch Game

Sony Is Releasing A Nintendo Switch Game

The announcement comes from, surprisingly, a new indie label known as Unties that is actually the publishing arm of Sony Music Entertainment. It's a strategy simulation game developed by "Area 35". Check out the Tiny Metal trailer from Pax West 2017 below. However, considering the studio's mission to "spread information about excellent games and sell titles for multiple platforms", it's likely that the Switch-and potentially Xbox One-will get plenty of love.

Sony has been somewhat standoffish towards its competitors as of late, especially regarding the allowance of cross-platform play on the PlayStation 4, so it seems a bit odd that they would produce games for Nintendo. Tiny Metal heads to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on November 21 in Japan, which means Switch users in the USA and Europe can start playing the game by simply hopping on the Japanese Nintendo eShop when it launches. In fact, the label just announced its first game for the Nintendo Switch. You will play as Lieutenant, Nathan Gries, while he fights the evil nation of Zipang. Gamers should consider varying terrain, positioning for attacks, strategic advancements, and defenses. The game will release on the PS4, PC, and Switch, where it will join another recent entry in the turn-based tactics genre, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.

1.19 is Blackstone Mortgage Trust Inc's (NYSE:BXMT) Institutional Investor Sentiment
After $0.71 actual EPS reported by Itron, Inc. for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 25.35% EPS growth. Amica Mutual Ins holds 10,272 shares. 231,588 were accumulated by Great Lakes Advsr Limited Liability Corp.

"With the evolution of digital publishing, it has become possible to distribute homebrew titles globally", says the Unties website.

And then there's Merkava Avalanche, an unusual looking mix of mech-on-mech violence and high-speed chases across the desert. It's possible that Sony doesn't want to annoy other platform holders by having that name on their formats. Sony Online Entertainment published Payday: The Heist and PlanetSide 2 on PC. The label has yet to comment on future console releases. Sony doesn't allow cross-platform gaming, and according to Microsoft Sony will not allow cross-platform gaming for a long time.
