The Indie World Showcase announced a wealth of indie games past and present coming to the Nintendo Switch, including four out now

Nintendo’s recurrent livestream presentations continued on Tuesday with the Indie World Showcase on its official YouTube channel. Tail ending the presentation was the surprise announcement of the outrageously popular and “multiplayer GOTY award-winningAmong Us for Switch.

Among Us joins Calico, Grindstone, and When the Past was Around in being immediately available as of the presentation’s showing. Grindstone, from the award-winning creators of Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, has been another highly anticipated title for the system ever since its release as an Apple Arcade exclusive in September 2019.

Other notable announcements include a simultaneous release on both the Epic Game Store and Switch of the forever delayed Super Meat Boy Forever, which finally has a confirmed release date of December 23, 2020.

Finally, a distant release of next summer has been announced for Nintendo Switch versions of both the original Spelunky and its sequel. The PC version of Spelunky 2 currently has a beta for its multiplayer in progress and has crossplay incoming next year with the PS4 version, so hopefully full crossplay might well be a possibility for the summer release.
