In a new indie highlights video filled with turn-based, role-playing and platforming action, Nintendo showcased many of the new and upcoming independent games coming to the Nintendo Switch system. The video revealed a Feb. 1 launch date for the turn-based strategy game Wargroove (Chucklefish), the announcement of the next game in the acclaimed SteamWorld universe, SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech (Image & Form Games / Thunderful Publishing) and more indie news.
In Wargroove, now available for pre-purchase, players choose their Commander and wield their army’s units in a war between battling factions. Up to four players* can strategically sway the battle in their favor as they progress through the campaign, challenge each other in local and online multiplayer modes or design battlefields and stories with the easy-to-use in-game editor and customization tools.
SteamWorld Quest is a team-based card collecting role-playing game set to an epic story around what it means to be a hero. With billions of potential decks to build, tongue-in-cheek humor, a storybook-inspired art style and memorable characters, the game is a unique addition to the SteamWorld franchise.
The video also revealed many other indie games coming to Nintendo Switch, including retro-inspired action-RPG CrossCode (Deck13 Interactive / Radical Fish Games), explosive metal rhythm game Double Kick Heroes (Plug in Digital / Headbang Club), story-driven puzzle-platformer Inmost (Chucklefish / Hidden Layer Games) and 2D open-world game Forager (Humble Bundle / HopFrog). In a surprise announcement, it was also revealed that indie games Goat Simulator: The GOATY (Coffee Stain Studios), When Ski Lifts Go Wrong (Curve Digital / Hugecalf Studios) and Unruly Heroes (Magic Design Studios) are available to purchase in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch right now!
