Two upcoming Switch releases, Little Nightmares and Death Road to Canada, have been granted new release dates for May 2018. Little Nightmares: Complete Edition arrives on May 18th, while Death Road to Canada hits the Switch following a delay on May 8th.

Little Nightmares is a puzzle platformer with nightmarish, ghoulish imagery set in cell-like rooms that you must escape from. The Switch edition follows long after the game’s original release on other platforms in 2017, and includes all the DLC and the exclusive use of the Pac-Man amiibo to unlock the Pakku Mask outfit.

Death Road to Canada

Death Road to Canada was originally scheduled to launch in April, but was delayed in light of the tragic events that unfolded in Toronto on April 23rd. This delay also applies to the game’s PS4 and Xbox One editions. It remains the same “Randomly Generated Road Trip Action-RPG” it was announced as, a combination of rogue-like with top-down shooting action for couch co-op.

The Nindie additions of Little Nightmares and Death Road contribute to a busy release schedule for Switch this May. Other Nindie games on the imminent horizon include Runner 3, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, and Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles.
