Here’s Everything Announced at the Nintendo Indie World Showcase
A ton of new and upcoming indies made their way into the Nintendo Indie World presentation - here is everything that was shown.
The Nintendo Switch is far from being in short supply of excellent games anytime soon, and that is especially the case when it comes to indie games. The Switch has managed to establish itself as a flourishing ground for indie gaming from around the world, and the latest Indie World presentation from Nintendo showed that we have a ton of indie games to look forward to in the coming months.
As announced yesterday, Nintendo presented its latest Indie World showcase to highlight the latest indie games that will be coming to the Switch in the near future. Overall, most of the games showcased are coming in either the spring or summer, so we won’t have too much longer to wait to get our hands on them. In case you missed it, you can check out the full Indie World showcase from today below:
While Nintendo showed off over 20 different indie games throughout the course of the presentation, you can find the highlights of the presentation below:
Hello Games’ upcoming new project seems like a pretty big departure from their last release, No Man’s Sky, but seems to be just as inviting and pretty promising. As seen in the Indie World presentation today, The Last Campfire was confirmed to be coming to Switch this summer, alongside PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Annapurna Interactive, the publisher behind recent indie hits like Sayonara Wild Hearts, Wattam, and more, showed off a new trailer for their upcoming title I Am Dead, which has the player exploring a colorful island and retracing memories of the past. According to Annapurna, the game will be coming to Nintendo Switch and PC sometime later this year.
As the follow-up to the wildly popular Enter the Gungeon, Exit the Gungeon adapts the series trademark run-n-gun gameplay to a 2D sidescroller setting. Initially released last fall on Apple Arcade, publisher Devolver Digital confirmed that the game would be making its way to Nintendo Switch and PC today.
The cult hit indie game first arrived on PC last year and gave players a wonderfully addictive roguelike deckbuilding experience, and now the title is confirmed to be coming to Nintendo Switch. While no specific release date was provided just yet, Dicey Dungeons is on track to arrive for Switch sometime later this year.
Tabletop gaming fans and bird lovers had a lot to rejoice for this week with the reveal that a digital version of Wingspan will be coming to the Nintendo Switch this spring. Having played the tabletop game myself, I can say that it is truly an excellent game in its own right and a game that stands out from so many other board games, and soon a whole new audience will get to experience it for themselves on Switch and PC. This game isn’t just for the birds.
Bloober Team’s acclaimed Blair Witch managed to scare its way onto consoles and PC last year, and coming from the team behind Layers of Fear and Observer, there’s little doubt that they wouldn’t be able to terrify us. However, with horror games in relatively short supply on Nintendo Switch, that will seemingly change when Blair Witch comes to the platform this summer. What are the chances that they’ll call it Blair Switch?
