Sony Announces It's Publishing An Indie Title Tiny Metal For Nintendo Switch

Sony to release indie game on Nintendo Switch

While that certainly seems to hint that Unties may not be limited to publishing games for Sony platforms, none of the other games in Unties growing lineup are confirmed to appear for the Nintendo Switch. This isn't the first time Sony has gone out and published on non-PlayStation consoles.

"Sony Music Entertainment has created a new game publishing label called UNTIES, in order to penetrate the ever-expanding video game market with indie games, which are continuing to draw attention even within Japan".

The Switch is a fitting place for Tiny Metal, as the game is crafted as a spiritual successor and homage to older Advance Wars titles that hasn't seen a new entry since 2008's Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict.

Here's the twist: Unties is a recently formed publishing subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment.

A soldier was assaulted by a mob on suspicion of his role in a braid-chopping incident, Hindustan Times reported. Incidents of braid-chopping have led to protests in Srinagar, Baramulla, Pulwama and Ganderbal districts.

The label is dedicated to publishing indie games, and the name means to "unleash the unique talent of creators all over the world".

Some of Unites' other upcoming releases - like Merkava Avalanche and Last Standard - are slated for release on "PC/TBA", meaning other platforms couild also be brought into the fold. The developers remained optimistic, having secured funding for the basic vision of the game but everything fell to nearly radio silence while they concentrated on building the title.

The new label will focus on Japanese indie games, trying to build on the similar popularity shared by the North American audience for these games and distribution on the Nintendo Switch is hoped will help push the momentum of the Japanese indie dev scene amongst players. Tiny Metal will arrive on a variety of platforms on November 21st.

KitGuru Says: I was actually a backer of Tiny Metal and have followed its journey as closely as I could. You can catch the trailer below.
