Dauntless is out now on Nintendo Switch



Dauntless - Nintendo Switch

Dauntless on Nintendo Switch lets you make a T-Rex tail into a hat on the go.

Dauntless, which brings the Monster Hunter formula to a free-to-play indie setting, is out today on Nintendo Switch. Its release was one of the big announcements at today’s Indie World Direct.

The game has been cooking for a while. It was first released in beta back in 2018, then got an early access release this spring, before getting a full release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in September.


Dauntless - Nintendo Switch

The game, smartly and generously, allows players to cross save among versions. So if you’ve been playing for a while on PS4, you can seamlessly swap to Switch and back. All games should do this. Thank you, Dauntless.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
