All The New Switch Games From This Week's Nintendo Direct-Style Presentation
Lots of cool-looking indie games are on the way to Switch this year.
Nintendo showcased a variety of new games coming to Switch this year during its latest Indie Highlights video. In all, the company spotlighted nine new indie titles in development for the hybrid console, including a few surprise releases that are available to download right now.
The biggest surprise of the presentation was the announcement of SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, the newest game in Image & Form's genre-spanning series. Unlike the recent SteamWorld Dig 2, SteamWorld Quest is a steampunk-fantasy RPG in which players select cards to perform attacks. No release date has been announced, but the game is slated to arrive first on Switch later this year.
