Nintendo kicks off PAX West with a second Indie Highlights video in as many weeks.
You’re gonna need a bigger SD card, because those indie games keep on coming. Hot on the heels of last week’s surprise Indie Highlights presentation for Gamescom, Nintendo has released another short video detailing some more indie titles heading to the Switch in 2018, and early 2019.
And just like last week, there was a surprise release announcement, with Subset Games’ highly acclaimed turn-based strategy game, Into the Breach, arriving on the Switch eShop today.
You can watch the full video over on the Nintendo website, but here’s a list of the confirmed game announcements, and release dates

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
