As successful as Switch has been for Nintendo, it hasn’t been without criticism including warped consoles and a somewhat underwhelming launch lineup. Despite some fantastic titles already available on the platform like the near-perfect Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, Arms and Splatoon 2, Nintendo is going to have to do more than bring the Rabbids to the Mushroom Kingdom to keep the hype going. Fortunately, today’s “Nindies” game showcase has brought a lot more to the table…
We all expect Nintendo to have a decent number of high quality first party titles for any of its hardware, but it’s the little guys that help to fill in the gaps between major releases.
This morning’s presentation showed off some pretty major games including the next release in the No More Heroes saga, Super Meat Boy Forever, Shovel Knight: King of Cards, Golf Story, Kentucky Route Zero:TV Edition and much more. You’ll find a complete list of everything we saw including some release windows and more.
Travis Touchdown is making a comeback on the Nintendo Switch
in Travis Strikes Again.
No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again will be released sometime in 2018 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. You can check out the new trailer above.
Another highlight from the show was Super Meat Boy Forever and its endlessly adaptable levels. Team Meat is bringing the new platformer to Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018.
A personal highlight for me, Shovel Knight’s final campaign, King of Cards, will be playable on Nintendo Switch in ”early 2018”.
