Indies Invade the Nintendo Switch

Nindies Direct Showcase for March 2019, Includes Cuphead 1

If the Wii U was an allegory for a barren wasteland, in terms of third-party support, then the Switch would definitely be a wellspring of indie delights. To prove that point here is the rundown on all the new independent titles that were just announced, for Nintendo’s hybrid beast of a system.

Right off the bat, the Indies showcase confirmed a recent rumour, by showcasing off a brand-new, appropriately retro themed trailer for Cuphead. The once Xbox and PC will be available on Switch this coming April.

Creature in the Well, a world-debut title that was shown off, looks like an interesting mix between a hack’n’slasher and an arcadey, pinball game.

Bloodroots, which will be available on both the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 4, is another fun looking action game, which according to the press release, was inspired by Samurai Jack.
