Today, Nintendo unveiled a new Indie World video showcasing a wide variety of indie games coming to the Nintendo Switch. Highlights of the video include rogue-like dungeon crawler Hades, card-trick adventure game Card Shark, and Raji: An Ancient Epic, an action-adventure game inspired by Hindu and Balinese mythology that launches for Nintendo Switch later today.
Indie World also revealed a free two-player update for Untitled Goose Game that is headed to the slapstick-stealth-sandbox game on September 23. Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Publisher and Developer Relations shared a few words, he affirms that Nintendo Switch’s indie library is about to get “even bigger” in the following years.
“Thanks to the independent developers from around the world who have found their home on Nintendo Switch, the system continues to be a place where fans can enjoy an expanding and diverse library of indie games anytime and anywhere.”
- Hades: This is a god-like, rogue-like dungeon crawler that combines the best aspects of Supergiant’s critically acclaimed titles, from the fast-paced action of Bastion to the rich atmosphere and depth of Transistor. As the immortal Prince of the Underworld, players will wield the powers and mythic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the infamous god of the dead himself, while growing stronger and unraveling more of the story. Thousands of viable character builds and a fully voiced cast of colorful, larger-than-life characters ensure each and every escape attempt through the ever-shifting Underworld is unique. Hades will feature cross-saves with the PC version when the game comes to Nintendo Switch this fall.
- Raji: An Ancient Epic: This intense action-adventure game is set in ancient India and inspired by Hindu and Balinese mythology. A young girl, chosen by the gods, stands against the demonic invasion of the human realm. Her destiny: Rescue her younger brother and face the mighty demon lord. Players will experience fluid combat and parkour while mastering divine weapons. Raji: An Ancient Epic launches later today on Nintendo Switch as a timed console exclusive.
- Untitled Goose Game: What could be more troublesome than a horrible goose? Two horrible geese! A free two-player update for the popular slapstick-stealth-sandbox game will be available starting on Sept. 23. Untitled Goose Game will also be getting a physical release on Nintendo Switch, with more information revealed in the future. A Q&A with the developers of Untitled Goose Game will be hosted on the Indie World Twitter account on August 20 from 1 to 2 p.m. PT.
The Indie World presentation also included quick highlights of yet more indie games coming to Nintendo Switch, including INMOST from Hidden Layer Games / Chucklefish (August 21), The Red Lantern from Timberline Studios and She Dreams Elsewhere from Studio Zevere, which are both coming soon.
