There Are a Lot of Indie Games Coming to the Nintendo Switch

Today seems to be Indie Games for the Nintendo Switch Day, because a bunch of new and existing games have been announced for the console. Existing games from 11 Bit Studios will be hitting the console, as well as Prison Architect, and Windjammers 2, which is a new title also coming to PC. We already posted about Bad North, which hit the Switch today, so like I just said, today is definitely a Switch-centric kind of day. Head on down below for all of the details.

11-Bit Games for the Switch

  • This War of Mine is a gripping survival game inspired by real-life events, in which you do not play as an elite soldier but as a group of civilians merely trying to survive in a city under siege. Test your decision making skills and emotional resilience to the limits when This War of Mine launches on Nintendo Switch in November. Releasing as the Complete Edition, the game will contain every free expansion and paid DLC released so far as well as all the content to be released in the future. This War of Mine launches on Nintendo Switch in November in cooperation with Koch Media / Deep Silver.
  • Beat Cop is a retro, pixel art style adventure set in New York City and inspired by 80’s cop shows. You are Jack Kelly and you’ve been framed for murder. Now, as a regular beat cop you have to find out who set you up. Expect a thick crime story, a lot of black humor and many other seedy things you might find on the hardened streets of Brooklyn. Beat Cop launches on Nintendo Switch in Fall 2018.
  • Moonlighter, by Digital Sun Games tells a story of an adventurous shopkeeper with dreams of becoming a hero. In this action-RPG with rogue-lite elements, you’ll have to stay sharp to take care of business – not only with a sword but also quite literally, as you manage your own shop. Coming to Nintendo Switch this Fall.
  • In Children of Morta you hack and slash your way through endless hordes of enemies in this narrative-driven roguelike. Playable in either single player or co-op, experience what it means to be part of a family of heroes as they fight to defend their legacy and each other. Children of Morta comes to Nintendo Switch in early 2019.

Windjammers 2

Retro masters at Dotemu announced that the legendary disc throwing game, Windjammers, is getting a sequel. Windjammers 2 will combine everything fans love about the classic title with entirely hand-drawn 2D animations to create the ultimate windjamming experience. Additionally, the Blitworks-developed Dotemu rendition of the original NEO GEO game will land on the Nintendo Switch on Oct. 23 for $14.99.
