After a million-dollar crowdfunding campaign and at least four years of development, Indivisible finally saw the light of day in late 2019. A pretty good game in many ways, though of course everyone was asking for it to port to Nintendo Switch. Well, here it is.
The new Lab Zero Games is now available on the eShop of the hybrid console. It has come completely by surprise, as no release date had yet been announced. In fact, nor did the developers know that the game was launching today, as its designer Mike Zaimont explained on Twitter.
HEY, THAT THING EVERYONE WANTED?@IndivisibleRPG is out RIGHT NOW digitally for Switch in North America!
Feel like you missed the announcement? You're not alone, our team found out because people on Twitter sent us congratulations! I had no idea! But there it is! : ^ P

Hey, do you know what everyone was asking for? Indivisible is available digitally right now for Switch in North America! (Also in Europe) Do you have the feeling that you have missed the ad? You are not alone, our team found out because people were congratulating us on Twitter! I had no idea, but here it is!
Sadly, it doesn't end there. Although the developer it states that the port (made by another different team) is very good, the truth is that it is an older version lacking fundamental features, such as cooperative or NG + mode.
He also explains that the cover illustration for the eShop it's not the right, although comparing it with the one it has on other platforms such as Steam I can't see the difference. I imagine that they will know better, that they are the developers.
In any case, there has been absolutely nothing around the launch of this port. Neither advertisement nor promotion of any kindnot even a notice to the Lab Zero people telling them "Hey, what's out todayAdding that to the missing features, Zaimont not very enthusiastic.
This release does not represent Lab Zero's quality standards at all. Sorry, but it's not. It was not us. But hey, it's got a 20% discount!
The editor of Indivisible on all platforms is 505 Games. There is still the possibility that it was a mistake and the game is withdrawn shortly. Or just that end it patching to add everything else to it. Be that as it may, at the time of publishing this news you can buy it in the eShop perfectly.
