11 bit studios have announced they will be porting four of their games, This War of Mine, Beat Cop, Moonlighter and Children of Morta to Switch. The first two games are being ported to Switch by Crunching Koalas, a Warsaw based studio.

This War of Mine is definitely the game that garnered the most attention from this list, having been critically acclaimed as well as extremely well received by players. It has scored 83 out of 100 on Metacritic, while it holds an "Overwhelmingly Positive" review score on Steam, with 95 per cent positive reviews.

The game is about surviving a war that was inspired by real-life events from the Siege of Sarajevo from 1992 to 1996. It is one of the rare cases in gaming where you're not a super soldier that goes Rambo on everything and saves the day, but rather a game that offers perspective of random civilians trying to survive hell on Earth.

This War of Mine is coming to Nintendo Switch at some point in November 2018 and will be released as a Complete Edition which will include all expansions and DLC that were released so far. An oddity with this edition is that it will come with paid content that will be released in future as well.

Beat Cop is not a war zone story, but one that will play with your emotions nonetheless. The game puts you in the shoes of Jack Kelly, a regular cop that has been framed for murder, on the mission to find out who framed you. 11 bit studios have a habit of putting up a disclaimer that the game contains a lot of dark humour so consider yourself warned.

Moonlight is still a storytelling game, but with a bit more focus on other parts of the game, where you are an adventurous shopkeeper that wants to become a hero. The game features rogue-lite elements where players' skill will be tested in both combat and managing their shop. It is scheduled for release on Switch during "Fall 2018".

Children of Morta is a hack and slash rogue-like that features hordes of enemies for you to cut through. The game can be played in both single player and co-op, but 11 bit studios haven't specified whether it will feature local, wireless or simply online multiplayer for Switch. Children of Morta is slated for release in early 2019.
