During Gamescom 2018, Nintendo of Europe uploaded an Indie Highlight video to YouTube, showcasing some independently developed games coming to the Nintendo Switch. Then, Nintendo of America announced a Nindies Showcase for August 28th after Gamescom. In this 15 minute short presentation, Nintendo of America revealed 22 different games coming to Nintendo Switch in late 2018 and early 2019. There were a lot of awesome announcements, including the release date of Undertale on the Switch.

Notable announcements include:

  • Treasure Stack is a new type of block-falling puzzle game. Part platforming and part puzzling challenges come to Nintendo Switch in December 2018, with support for cross-platform play.
  • Mineko’s Night Market is coming to consoles; first to the Nintendo Switch. Enjoy over 20 hours of story content and a bunch of quests, activities, and projects to keep your night market in business. Mineko’s Night Market launches in early 2019.
  • Levelhead is a unique platformer with a focus on creating your own levels and sharing them with the world. It launches on Nintendo Switch in November 2018.
  • Discover the game you never knew you wanted, when Untitled Goose Game launches on Nintendo Switch in early 2019. Wreck havoc amongst townfolk in this stealth-sandbox goose simulator.
