‘Bastion’, ‘Transistor’, ‘Hyper Light Drifter’ And More Announced For Nintendo Switch

Transistor, Bastion, Hyper Light Drifter, Wasteland 2 and a slew of brand new titles are joining the ever-expanding Nintendo Switch Indie catalog.

Nintendo’s latest console has quickly become the go-to choice for those who want the full console experience in a mobile package, without the shortcomings of gaming on phones or tablets. Visual sacrifices are a given, but it’s difficult to pass on the idea that the likes of DOOM, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition and the upcoming release of Dragon Ball FighterZ can be taken on the road without compromising the gameplay features of their Xbox One, PS4 and PC counterparts. Independent developers have clearly taken note of Nintendo’s successful new platform, as the Switch sees upwards of a dozen new digital game releases per week, and will continue to do so through the end of this year.

Earlier today, Nintendo hosted a brief “Summer 2018” edition of their Nindies Showcase series. The 16-minute presentation highlighted the vast diversity of Indie games currently available for the Nintendo Switch, but also revealed a handful of brand new ports for the console, including the likes of Transistor and Bastion from Supergiant Games, Hyper Light Drifter, Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut, TowerFall, and the highly-anticipated Dragon: Marked for Death from Mega Man Zero developer Inti Creates. Along with today’s Nindies video, Nintendo also launched the Indie Channel on the Switch as a dedicated in-console source for updates on all upcoming Indie titles. The full list of highlighted games and their tentative release windows or confirmed dates is listed below:
