Nintendo highlights some upcoming indie games for the Switch in a new video, including details of three new games released today.
Nintendo has dropped a surprise Indie Highlights video which outlines some of the upcoming indie games heading to the Nintendo Switch in 2018 and 2019. Three games without previously confirmed release dates are also hitting the Nintendo eShop today.
Today’s releases include Cosmoscope’s team-based shooter, Morphies Law, which supports 4-vs-4 online multiplayer, and local multiplayer for up to eight players. It’s joined by real-time tactics game, Bad North, which we played – and loved – during The Mix during E3. Finally, the BAFTA-winning Prison Architect is also out today, and will be followed by ‘The Escape’ Mode DLC later this summer.
Other games confirmed for future release on the Switch include Windjammers, Windjammers 2, Children of Morta, Terraria, and This War of Mine from 11bit studios.
