Nintendo is packing up a wealth of indie games and making its way to jolly old England to display them on the showroom floor of EGX 2018, the UK’s biggest gaming event.

Announced this morning, Nintendo’s indie lineup is looking quite strong with a wide range of both previously released and upcoming titles on display. Among those featured will be the return of Suda 51’s classic series No More Heroes with its latest installment Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. Bizarre puzzler Baba is You will also be making an appearance along with turn-based strategy title Wargroove and rogue-like Moonlighter. 1990s arcade classic Windjammers will be on display to whet the appetite for the recently announced upcoming sequel.

There will also be a chance to get some hands-on time with Stick Fight, the classic Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath, Into the Breach, Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse, and Untitled Goose Game, as well as puzzle titles The Gardens Between, and Treasure Stack.

Outside of the indie section Nintendo will also have playable builds of upcoming titles like Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee before their release alongside a limited edition Switch later this year, Super Mario Party, and the much anticipated Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

EGX will be celebrating its tenth anniversary this year with the event kicking off in The Nec, Birmingham, from September 20-23.
