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.

Nintendo also announced a release date for Wargroove, the Advance Wars-style turn-based strategy game from Stardew Valley publisher Chucklefish. After suffering multiple delays, the title is finally scheduled to arrive on Switch on February 1, and those who have been eagerly awaiting its release can now pre-order it from the Eshop.
While those two titles may still be on the horizon, a handful of new games are available to download now from the Switch Eshop, including the ridiculous Goat Simulator: The GOATY, the stylish 2D co-op sidescroller Unruly Heroes, and the Bridge Constructor-like construction game When Ski Lifts Go Wrong.
Other titles we got a look at during the presentation included Chucklefish's atmospheric platformer, Inmost, the unique rhythm metal shooter Double Kick Heroes, and the 2D action RPG CrossCode.
