Nintendo Direct - Nindies Showcase Round Up

Flashback Coming to Nintendo Switch on its 25th Anniversary

They also revealed that the previous titles will be coming to the hybrid console later on.

"Since the launch of Nintendo Switch, we've continued to be blown away with the amount of high-quality games coming from our passionate Nindie developers, and the positive fan reception for those experiences", said Damon Baker, Nintendo Senior Manager for Publisher & Developer Relations.

Game company Nintendo announced recently that The Banner Saga 3 will be coming to the Nintendo Switch soon.

Details on the Nintendo Switch version weren't readily disclosed, but the Nindies showcase did mention that two players will be able to duke it out in local multiplayer matches using a single pair of Joy-Con controllers.

If you missed the livestream above, here's a roundup of what was announced.

- Mark of the Ninja Remastered (Klei Entertainment): Originally released in 2012, this high-definition remaster of the critically acclaimed stealth action game is coming this fall.

Attractive stealth action platformer by Klei Entertainment is set to release this autumn.

The Banner Saga and Fantasy Strike highlight today's showcase, but the stream was a rapid fire of updates. "The Switch is a take-anywhere console, so fighting games would be great on it if not for how notoriously hard they are to control".

You can look for Fantasy Strike to launch this summer for home consoles and PC. The top-down shooter, published by Tiny Build, has players slaying the undead with various weapons as they try to stay alive.

It's basically a giant cartoon game of pool that features local multiplayer with up to four players. There is a whole new story mode which can be tackled alone or with friends.

The Banner Saga 3 is expected to arrive Summer 2018, although its unclear how the new deal with Nintendo will affect other platforms like, PS4, Xbox One and PC. Navigate deadly shapes solo or in local or online co-op multiplayer, all to a soundtrack composed by 20 chiptune artists. So the controls are obviously going to be simplified enough to only rely on the face buttons and the left and right bumpers. Light Fall is a platformer where the main character uses a magical box called a Shadow Core to propel through the air. Light Fall is launching on Switch this spring as a timed exclusive.

Comedic RPG West of Loathing will be available this spring. No specifics were given outside of all three making their way to Switch. Guess what? It's a Switch first and out in the spring. The Messenger features both 8-bit and 16-bit gameplay and graphics, inspired by both eras of platformers.
