Nintendo announce dozens of upcoming indie titles

Even more indie games coming in the near future to the hybrid console.

Following on from Nintendo of Europe’s Indie Highlights video (below) which went live last week, Nintendo of America has released its own Nintendo Switch Nindies Showcase Summer 2018 video, packed full of yet more exciting indie games that Nintendo Switch owners will be able to enjoy at home or on the go in the near future.

With Into the Breach available from today, The Messenger available later this week and a strong line-up of other cool indie content arriving in the coming months, Nintendo Switch owners will have plenty to keep them gaming as summer draws to a close.

Indie games have already enjoyed success on the hybrid platform, with games such as Darkest Dungeon and Hollow Knight performing very well, but it seems as this may have been only a stepping stone into a promising future for the console. See below for a full list of the games featured in the presentation:
