Thimbleweed Park Creator Teases Switch Port

July 08th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

Ron Gilbert, one half of the duo that conceived the classic point-and-click adventure Maniac Mansion, released a short video showing his newest game Thimbleweed Park running on the Switch.

While he did not actually confirm the game would be coming to the console, he did mention “multiple Thimbleweed Park console announcements” would be coming next week.

Worth noting in the video is that Gilbert is able to freely switch between Joy-Con and touchscreen controls to navigate.

Thimbleweed Park is currently out for Windows, Mac, Xbox One and Linux.

The next free update for ARMS is scheduled for July 12 and will add head of the ARMS League and current champion Max Brass as a playable character.

Like every other ARMS fighter, he has his own special abilities. He can temporarily buff himself up and resist knockdowns when he charges his punches. Also, like Spring Man, his punches will stay charged when his health drops below 25 percent.

Last month, Nintendo released an update for ARMS that added LAN play and spectator mode.
