Nintendo recently hosted Nintendo Direct, which showcased 17 Indie titles coming to the Nintendo Switch. The corporation has promised that all of the titles will be released before the end of 2017, which is quite assertive considering that the hybrid console is yet to be released.
All of that aside, the titles that were highlighted in the presentation called "Nindies Showcase" were quite fascinating and enthralling for many. And so, in order to provide one with a definitive idea about what to get upon the arrival of the platform, here's the Top 5 Indie Games Coming to the Switch.
Mr. Shifty is a time exclusive title for the Switch, which is slated to be released this April under developer Team Shifty. The game will put players in a highly strained battlefield where a single hit from an enemy will eliminate them from play. The good news, however, is that players will have supernatural power - akin to X-Men's Nightcrawler where the player can basically dodge all projectiles and lasers using its teleportation ability as they bash their enemies along the way. Needless to say, this game is one heck of an adventure!
This game basically revives the era of old school shooters as it provides 16-bit of intense mayhem! Its developer, Vblank Entertainment, announced the title to be released in April and will launch as a time exclusive for the Switch as well.
One of the titles coming from Chucklefish, Wargroove, provides amazing turn-based strategy game, which can be played, for up to four players at a given time. This game is basically a "Heroes of Knight and Magic meets Fire Emblem Heroes." For those that love this type of genre, this game is a must have!
GoNNER is described as a tough hell score-based procedurally-generated platformer with rogue-like elements which is currently available on Steam. The game enjoys high reviews from Steam, Desctructoid and GOG. Despite being available to the Steam platform, publisher Raw Fury will be creating a time exclusive special content for the console.
Another game coming from the publisher Raw Fury is Dandara, which is virtually a Metroidvania-style 2D action platformer. According to Gamerant, the game will launch this summer and will contain special functionality exclusively for the Switch that includes HD Rumble.
