Every New Switch Game Featured During Tuesday's Nintendo Direct

Including Into the Breach.

12 Comments

Nintendo announced 22 indie games coming to Switch in the company's newest Direct-style broadcast. Most of the games are coming this year, including critically acclaimed titles like Into the Breach and Hyper Light Drifter, but a few are scheduled for 2019.

Into the Breach is the biggest surprise to come out of the Direct. Previously a PC exclusive, the turn-based strategy game turned heads this past February with its superb storytelling written by Chris Avellone--who's previously written narratives for games like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and Fallout: New Vegas--and stunning musical score composed by Ben Prunty--who also made the soundtrack for FTL: Faster Than Light. We gave the game a 9/10 in our review. You can see more games coming this year at the bottom of this story.

Nintendo used the Direct to announce a few indie games coming to Switch in 2019 as well. Mineko's Night Market is scheduled for early 2019, and tells a 20-hour story about a young girl who opens her own stall in a night market. With four regions to explore and plenty of quests to undertake, you'll have plenty of activities to keep you busy as you expand your wares in this cat-filled world. Samurai Gunn 2 is also coming to Switch in early 2019, continuing the original title's lightning-fast brawler gameplay across a medieval metropolis.

The World Next Door puts you into the shoes of a rebellious teenage girl trapped in a magical parallel world. You'll have to navigate a branching tree of dialogue between battles, and if you play your cards right you'll develop close friendships with the colorful cast of anime-like characters you'll meet on your journey to get back home. The World Next Door is also coming early 2019. Both King of the Hat and Untitled Goose Game will be coming out around the same time too. The former is a king of the hill style game where you have to crush your opponents hats to score points. The latter is a goofy goose simulator.

I bought a Nintendo Switch but now I am tired of these indie games. 500 indie games released monthly on Nintendo eShop and not a single decent big title, instead they release games I had on Wii U, like DK-Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Toad and so on. I'll probably sell my Switch...

Look, some of these games are good, but my knee jerk reaction was "Ugh, more indie trash." Switch is gonna need a strong 2019.

@Ohaidere: You might get that knee looked at. A gaming library peppered with AAA and indie games is nicely well rounded.

@93ChevyNut: I agree, but MHGU was the first major non port title (barely) I picked up this year. 2018 has been pretty mediocre.
