In just a short time on the market, the Nintendo Switch has played host to an impressive number of indie titles. With developers flocking to the system, Nintendo has made strong efforts to shine a light on the many titles eShop has to offer. This morning’s Nindies Summer Showcase was no exception, with a bunch of upcoming games shown off for the system!

Kirk Scott kicked things off with a look at some exclusive content coming to the Switch version of Hyper Light Drifter. A new look for the game’s main character will allow players to easily locate hidden items throughout the world. There are also two new weapons in the game, the Crystal Shot and the Blade Caster. The Hyper Light Drifter special edition will release on Switch September 6.

Untitled Goose Game was one of the presentation’s more humorous offerings. As one of nature’s meanest animals, players are tasked with causing trouble for a farmer and other people in town. The title will apparently incorporate stealth and puzzle elements.

Mineko’s Night Market,Samurai Gunn 2, King of the Hat, The World Next Door, Zarvot, Towerfall and Treasure Stack all also received a strong amount of focus during today’s showcase. The titles are all expected to release sometime between September and the beginning of 2019. We’ll have more information on each of these titles in the coming days, but in the meantime, we’ve embedded the presentation below!

Finally, the presentation ended with the announcement that Into the Breach, the mech-based RTS, is available today on Switch! The title released on PC to strong reviews earlier this year, with many praising the game’s strong art direction.
