Now Playing: Worms W.M.D. - Siege You Again Gameplay

On August 31, Nintendo revealed a number of new indie games for Switch during an event it called the "Nindies Summer Showcase." There were a few high-profile announcements, including the Super Meat Boy sequel, Super Meat Boy Forever, Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition, and a brand-new No More Heroes game titled Travis Strikes Again.

You can watch the trailers for biggest new Nintendo Switch indie announcements from the event here. For those looking for something a bit meatier, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is available now and it earned a 9/10 in GameSpot's Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle review.

"Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle exudes off-beat optimism that never dissolves," said critic Ed Tran. "It's a consistent delight, no matter how challenging the road becomes, because Kingdom Battle's unique turn-based tactics system is in every way a pleasure to engage with.

"Coupled with the annoyingly infectious allure of Rabbids, and the always delightful, colorful world of the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is an implausibly engrossing formula that is positively challenging and endlessly charming."
