Five indie games from Nintendo's Indie World we'd love to play right now
Did you receive an email from Nintendo too, stating how many hours you have played on your Switch, which games you played most, et cetera? If you also had a 400-hour score on Animal Crossing, it might be time to expand your horizon just a little bit. Thankfully Nintendo has just shown which indie games will be making their way to Switch. These five games will definitely be fun.
It’s sci fi and it has got to do with ninjas. It does not even matter if the game is good with that setting. On the other hand there is no reason to doubt how much fun the action game Cyber Shadow will be. Mechanical Head Studios is the developer of the game and this is their debut. Publisher is Yacht Club Games, famous for Shovel Knight, so their support system is great. Plus, you can even use the amiibo of Shovel Knight in this game. Cyber Shadow releases on 26 January 2021.
If you rather put your brain to work, Capybara Games has decided to bring the iOS game Grindstone to Switch. Grindstone is a puzzle game that offers more than two hundred levels of puzzles in which you need to match monsters. The visuals look like you are watching a new show by the makers of Rick and Morty and the soundtrack is nice and dark. Grindstone really is a very unique game that will easily keep you going for hours. The game is out on Switch now.
There are many action brawlers out there, but how many of them do you know that actually feature cats? We thought so. Fisti Fluffs is exactly what we all need, now that we spend more time at home with our cats: this game puts cats in the position of fighting machines. One might use some random household item, while others just dress funny. This game is hilarious, even if you are just watching. You can play it with upto four people and the way in which the cats move, but the crazy chaos that they leave behind in the home they are fighting in, make this game one to never forget. Firsti Fluffs will be arriving at Switch in the first half of 2021.
Spelunky 1 & 2
Up for a challenge? Spelunky will take you underground just to die, die and die all over again. Sounds bad, but in this roguelike it is basically unavoidable. Spelunky might not be a game to love from the get-go, it is definitely one of the most loved indie titles of the past years. The fun graphics, the excellent gameplay and the way it allows you to change your way of thinking make Spelunky 1 & 2 an attractive package. You do need to wait for it though: this bundle will arrive in summer 2021.
Together with Fall Guys we could say that Among Us was the game of the pandemic. Thankfully it is finally coming to Switch. Better yet: it is already out on Switch. If you are curious how you can start off Among Us the best way, please read our article with tips and tricks on how to play it, depending on your role.
