Night in the Woods earned one of GameSpot's Editor Spotlight Awards for 2017. The game first launched to critical acclaim for PS4 and PC last February and was subsequently released for Xbox One this past December. Critic Kallie Plagge awarded the title a 9 out of 10 in GameSpot's Night in the Woods review.

"Both intensely personal and widely relatable, Night in the Woods doesn’t just tell a story--it gracefully captures complex, often unpleasant feelings and experiences," Plagge wrote. "From the quiet melancholy of doing nothing on a rainy day to the emotional vacuum of severe depression, I felt deeply, sometimes too deeply, while wandering through the cartoon-animal version of a small Midwestern town. Its witty writing and character development keep its crushing existential themes grounded, making Night in the Woods one of the most evocative games I’ve played in a long time."

A number of other acclaimed indie games are also coming to Nintendo Switch very soon. The gothic RPG Darkest Dungeon is slated to release on the Eshop this week. Meanwhile, the ultra-challenging platformer Super Meat Boy recently launched for the system and has been selling extremely well already.
