Indivisible Gets a Surprise Nintendo Switch Release, Even to the Developers (Updated)

Indivisible is now digitally available on Switch in North America. Problem is, Lab Zero Games weren't notified about the release beforehand.

Indivisible, as of April 28, 2020, is now available on Nintendo Switch on the North America Eshop. You didn’t know? Seems no one else did, even the developers.

Mike Zaimont, the Project Lead of Indivisible spoke about it on Twitter. The current version of Indivisible on Switch was launched without prior notice to its developers Lab Zero Games. The Switch version of the game right now is also based on an old build, and is missing features available on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions. Mainly there’s no co-op multiplayer during the battles, and there’s no New Game Plus mode.

Lab Zero Games, who is also behind fighting game Skullgirls, is made of pretty great people in my book, and I must personally say it’s a huge shame they have to deal with such an inconvenient situation. They don’t deserve this. Hopefully they will be able to sort things out soon.

Indivisible first launched in October 2019. You can check out our review of Indivisible here. As a side note, Indivisible will be launching in Japan for the first time on PS4 and Switch on July 16.  The Japanese release is handled by Spike Chunsoft, and a Japanese dub was recorded for the occasion.  Some of the cast selected is pretty meta and funny. Ajna in Japanese is voiced by Ami Koshimizu, who did Ryuko in Studio Trigger’s Kill la Kill. Naga Rider is voiced by Tomokazu Sugita, etc. You might want to check it out if you’re a fellow anime otaku.

Update: A new tweet shared by Zaimont shed some more light on the situation: The Switch version of the game was indeed supposed to launch with this build, but was to be accompanied with a day one patch. This day one patch ended up not releasing day one for an unknown reason, and is coming later.
