The already robust library of Nintendo Switch games is about to get even more diverse. In a new Nindies Showcase video, Nintendo detailed 20 of the many indie games that are coming to the hit console. Some of these Nindies include new games in the beloved Super Meat Boy and Shovel Knight franchises, as well as indie collaborations in games like Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes from Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture.
“We love the creativity, passion and amazing response that our independent developer community has already shown for Nintendo Switch,” said Damon Baker, Nintendo of America’s Senior Manager for Publisher & Developer Relations. “It’s great to see so many different developers creating new, unique experiences that take advantage of the hardware’s features. This is a win for fans, who will have access to an even wider selection of great indie content to take wherever they go.”
To celebrate all these upcoming indie games, Nintendo is bringing back the Nindies@Night event at this year’s PAX West in Seattle.
