Earlier this week, Limited Run Games announced that they’d be giving two indie titles from Tribute Games physical releases on the Nintendo Switch.

The two titles are Mercenary Kings: Reloaded Edition and Flinthook. If you follow Limited Run Games already you probably know that Flinthook already received a Limited Run release with the PS4 version. Mercenary Kings: Reloaded Edition will be getting additional physical releases on the PS4 and PS Vita. The game will also come with a reversible cover in all of the different versions.

If you haven’t played Flinthook, it’s an action platformer where you play as a masked space pirate who collects treasure on procedurally generated ships. Mercenary Kings is a side-scrolling shoot ’em up. Gameplay feels similar to the Metal Slug series. You can play as a multitude of different characters as you move from level to level completing different objectives and fighting off hundreds of enemies.

Flinthook is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, while Mercenary Kings can be found on Mac, PC, PS Vita, PS4, and Xbox One. If you already own Mercenary Kings on any of the platforms it’s currently available on, you’ll be upgraded to the Reloaded Edition of the game for free.
