Today’s Indie World Showcase covered an impressive range of upcoming Nintendo Switch games. Here’s everything you need to know.
The latest Nintendo Indie World delivered the goods with a jam-packed lineup of games coming to the Switch. Stealing the show was the surprise Nintendo eShop release for Thomas Happ’s easterly anticipated action platformer, Axiom Verge 2. It’s out now and probably very good.
Other new games arriving today include Necrobarista: Final Pour, Boyfriend Dungeon, and Slime Rancher: Plortable Edition.
Further ahead, it’s great to see Tetris Effect: Connected get a Switch outing in October, and we can’t wait to play the acclaimed Loop Hero, which is planned for release by the end of the year.
Even further ahead, Switch owners can look forward to playing Astroneer, Metal Slug Tactics, and Far: Changing Tides.
