Edmund McMillen and Tyler Glaiel's platforming adventure The End is Nighis one of those games I'm willing to wait to play until I can do so on Nintendo Switch, right alongside Hollow Knight.
The Switch version launches December 12 and that includes a $30 physical edition with goodies; if you score a first-run copy from Nicalis, you'll also get a 24-page manual and a silicone Ash toy.

Nic reviewed the PC version and had mostly good things to report, citing The End is Nigh's "phenomenal design, flawless controls, and kickass soundtrack you have come to expect from a McMillen game."
The takeaway? "If you couldn't get enough of Super Meat Boy and have spent the past seven years fiending for more punishing platformers, than The End of Nigh is something you should immediately inject into your veins." I think by the time this drops, I'll be ready for a new platformer.
