In the wee hours of this morning (Australian time), Nintendo held a digital livestream as part of their ‘Indie World Showcase’ series. The object of this series, if it isn’t clear already, is to highlight some of the indie games from third-party developers, headed to the Nintendo Switch in the coming months.
You can watch the stream in its entirety above, or if you just want a quick summary of what was showcased and any new announcements coming from it, keep scrolling downwards!
As the immortal Prince of the Underworld, players will wield the powers and mythic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the infamous god of the dead himself, while growing stronger and unravelling more of the story. Thousands of viable character builds and a fully-voiced cast of colourful, larger-than-life characters ensure each and every escape attempt through the ever-shifting Underworld is unique. Hades will feature cross-saves with the PC version when the game comes to Nintendo Switch this spring.
In this 90’s internet simulator, players will scour a wide variety of websites, add useful downloads to their desktop, dodge computer viruses – and hunt down virtual villains as an Enforcer in the Hypnospace Patrol Department. Hypnospace Outlaw launches August 28th on Nintendo Switch. The game is available for pre-order on Nintendo eShop now, with a free demo version also available to download.
As the Spiritfarer Stella, help the spirits of the deceased make their way into the afterlife by transporting them across the seas on your hand-crafted ferry. In this cosy management game featuring hand-drawn art and animations, you can befriend passengers, customise and improve your ferry, and explore an imaginative world – or just go wherever the wind takes you. Spiritfarer makes its maiden voyage on Nintendo Switch today.
