Lab Zero's Metroidvania action-RPG Indivisible launched on the Nintendo Switch North American eshop today, surprising everyone -- including its developers.
"Feel like you missed the announcement?" said project lead Mike Zaimont on Twitter today. "You're not alone, our team found out because people on Twitter sent us congratulations! I had no idea! But there it is!"
Zaimont continued in a tweet thread, noting that while the Switch version is "great," it is an older build of the game that is missing features that were added more recently to the other platform releases of the game, including co-op and New Game+.
He concluded by apologizing, saying that the launch "does not represent the quality standards of Lab Zero" and was released without any prior release date announcement or lead-up PR.
Zaimont also commented in a reply to another Twitter user that he did not know when Switch codes for IndieGogo backers or a physical Switch version would be released.
505 has not issued an official statement, though it announced an hour ago that the game was now also available on the European eshop and that Japanese, Korean, and Southeast Asian versions would be launched in the future.
Additionally, USGamer reports that in a message on the official 505 Discord channel, the publisher has said it is "looking into what occurred."
GamesIndustry.biz has reached out to 505 Games for comment.
Update, May 1, 2020: 505 Games has released a statement, explaining why the game was released earlier.
