Nintendo Highlights New Indie Titles With "Nintendo x Indies" Trailer
Stepping back from the indie games argument with Xbox and PS4, Nintendo is making a strong effort to start making indie titles feel welcome on the Nintendo Switch. The company will be creating a new division that they're calling "Nindies", but the finer details of what that section will entail are unknown at this point. Best guess on our end: a new section for the eShop with titles that will be sold cheaper than major titles, but that's just us spitballing. Just before PAX West will kick off this week, Nintendo will be airing a special livestream on their YouTube channel to talk about it and show off what it has in store. That stream will kick off on Wednesday, August 30th, at 10 a.m. PDT.
In the meantime, Nintendo is trying to psyche people up about the livestream with this new trailer that shows off several known and obscure indie titles that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch over the course of 2018. The trailer below shows off clips for games such as SteamWorld Dig 2, Shu, World to the West, Monster Boy & The Cursed Kingdom, Rogue Troopers Redux, Flipping Death, Owlboy, State of Mind, Yoku's Island Express, Constructor Plus, Away Journey to the Unexpected, Nine Parchments, Unbox Newbies Adventure, Uurnog, Flat Heroes, Hollow Knight, Battle Chasers Night War, Huntdown, Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition, and 8-Bit Armies.
