Thursday, August 9, 2018 — The sixty-second peculiar adventure Minit launched earlier this year, eager fans have asked the age-old question “when is the game coming to Switch”? Today, the development team of Kitty Calis, Jan Willem Nijman, Jukio Kallio & Dominik Johann can proudly answer “right…now”.
Heralded by a custom Nintendo Switch launch trailer capturing the timeless back and forth of the modern indie game developer and their fans, Minit is available today on Nintendo Switch for $9.99 [minitgame.com]. Minit arrives as the first game developed with YoYo Games’ GameMaker Studio 2 to launch on the Nintendo Switch.
Minit is a peculiar little adventure played sixty seconds at a time. Journey outside the comfort of your home to help unusual folk, uncover countless secrets, and overcome dangerous foes, all in hopes of lifting a rather unfortunate curse that ends each day after just one minute.

The Limited Edition version comes with a foil, chrome coverwrap variant – exclusive to the Dispatch Games Online Store and also contains a PC-based digital download code for the complete video game soundtrack! This version will NOT be available at retail. *ps4 Foil sample shown as example
First released in arcades in 2000, this enhanced version retains the classic BUZZ system that lets players enjoy the thrill of leveling up by avoiding direct hits and evading enemy attacks just enough to graze their planes.
Delta Point #1: New Mode
Players can now set their stage, planes, levels, and experience. In the REPLAY MODE+, a player can challenge each area with their own plane and bombs. SCORE ATTACK MODE allows a player to play for the high score with their difficulty. Both modes will have an online leaderboard to show how you stack up against other players.
Delta Point #2: New UI
The new UI shows Ex levels, boss health, and invincible time remaining after leveling up. The new design is easy for beginners to understand while the information helps experts as well. In the options menu, a player can show the hit area for their own plane and their enemies so that the game can be adjusted based on the players level of play.
Delta Point #3: New planes
Along with the 2 original planes, there will be new planes available as paid DLC which bring all new original attacks. These DLC can be used on all levels allowing players to have a different game play experience.
