Over a Dozen Indie Games Announced for the Nintendo Switch
In addition to Yooka-Laylee, Overcooked, The Escapists 2, SteamWorld Dig 2, and Stardew Valley, which we already covered, the Nindies showcase for the Nintendo Switch included a number of other exciting indie games to look forward to.
First up, let’s talk about three games from the publisher Raw Fury. GoNNER is a procedurally generated platformer with roguelike elements that promises a high level of challenge, as well as Switch-exclusive content. Dandara is another 2D game, with gravity manipulation and special features on the Switch. And finally, Kingdom: Two Crowns puts you in command of a kingdom and introduces a new co-op mode. All three are set for 2017.
Moving on, rhythm fans will be excited to see Runner3 coming out as a Nintendo Switch exclusive this fall, while fans of the action-adventure Blaster Master series can anticipate Blaster Master Zero on March 9 for both the Switch and 3Ds.
Maybe the quirky death-based (but still lighthearted) adventure game Flipping Death will catch your eye, or the ability to blow things up in Graceful Explosion Machine. Perhaps you’ll be interested in the fast-paced action gameplay of Mr. Shifty or the roguelike challenges of Tumbleseed.
Meanwhile Retro City Rampage fans should definitely look into Shakedown Hawaii, a 16-bit game available first on the Nintendo Switch.
Finally, the Nindies showcase concluded with a look at a fighting game called Pocket Rumble and a new turn-based strategy game called War Groove (which looks a lot like Advance Wars).
We have a lot of indie games to look forward to in the near future, across a wide range of genres. Which of these Nindies are you looking forward to the most?
