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
