- Various “Nindies”
Nintendo says “dozens” of indies (or Nindies) are on the way, including Super Meat Boy Forever, Tiny Metal and Steamworld.
Updates to Flip Wars, Splatoon 2 and ARMS are also incoming.
Some release highlights:
Super Mario Odyssey is obviously the big Nintendo game on the list, and from what I’ve played of the game it should have lots of fun surprises in store. It’s a 3D platformer in the vein of Super Mario Galaxy, and just as weird as you’d expect.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is the sequel to the wonderful Wii JRPG and promises a huge, lush open world and a complex combat system, not to mention a gorgeous musical score.
Dragon Quest Builders is my favorite not-Minecraft game, and is something like Minecraft meets Zelda. Quests, an actual story, and lots of weapons, monsters, and things to build make this a truly charming (and addictive) gem.
L.A. Noire is a classic detective game from Rockstar Games, the makers of Grand Theft Auto. This is releasing with all the DLC and fills a pretty unique niche on the Switch.
Wolfenstein II looks absolutely fantastic, and follows up a tremendous Wolfenstein reboot that I’ve played on PC and PS4. The sequel looks great and I’m frankly astonished to see it on Switch. This and DOOM will be the premiere first-person-shooters on Nintendo’s new console. With pretty much no first-person shooters on the Switch right now, this is only good news.
This is an impressive line-up, and quite a lot more robust than the Wii U…basically ever. Switch owners have lots to look forward to, even though some of these are obviously re-releases from various other platforms. Speaking of which, Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition also just launched on the Switch, and that’s a wonderful platformer that, once upon a time, was a Wii U exclusive, but has since popped up all over the place.
