Here’s Everything from the Nindies Showcase Spring 2019 Presentation
Titles from Devolver Digital, Vlambeer, and even Microsoft with Cuphead are coming to Nintendo Switch, as showcased in a new Nindies presentation.
Google isn’t the only big company with announcements during GDC 2019—Nintendo unveiled some indies (ahem, Nindies) coming soon to the Switch. With reports and rumors of a closer relationship between Nintendo and Microsoft, this Nindies Showcase started off with the surprising confirmation of Cuphead for the Switch. Previously exclusive to Xbox One and PC, Switch owners will be graced by the inspired art style and frenetic co-op gameplay thanks to Nintendo’s “friends at Microsoft.”
Check out the other trailers from the Nindies Presentation below.

My Friend Pedro by Devolver Digital and Deadtoast—June 2019
