Nintendo wants the Switch to be a home for indie games, and so far they’ve succeeded. Today Nintendo released a Nintendo Direct-like live stream showcasing upcoming indie games coming to the Switch, in the Indie World Showcase. Big reveals include the very popular though still in Early Access co-op sci-fi roguelike Risk of Rain 2 and a release date for the outstanding 2D action-adventure Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition.

“Since the system’s launch in 2017, Nintendo Switch has become a go-to platform for indie developers,” said Kirk Scott, Nintendo of America’s Indie Partner Manager of Publisher and Developer Relations. “With the diverse lineup of upcoming indie content showcased today, Nintendo Switch owners can look forward to expanding their digital libraries even further with a variety of quality indie games to play at home or on the go.”
