Earlier this morning, Nintendo kicked off Gamescom for the Switch in style with a new, surprise unannounced Indies Highlight video presentation, which included new details about indie games coming to Nintendo’s platform, while also sharing more footage and information about games that had already been previously announced.
The key announcement from the video was, of course, that Windjammers 2 would be coming to the Switch (seriously, a Windjammers 2 exists), but that apart, the video showed off multiple great looking games, including Streets of Rogue, Moonlighter, This War of Mine, Slay the Spire, Everspace: Stellar Edition, Morphies Law, Prison Architect, and Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, among many others. You can catch the full presentation below for yourself to see the whole thing. Interestingly enough, Nintendo also added a little tease for “more” at the end- is a Nintendo Direct inbound? It seems like it’s about time for one, doesn’t it?
Regardless, as far as indie support on Switch goes, the little thing is on fire. The likes of Little Nightmares, Night in the Woods, Owlboy and many more have done very well on the Switch, while the excellent Hollow Knight managed to do even better. Hopefully these new games find an audience on the Switch too, just like so many other indie games have on Nintendo’s hybrid.
