Nintendo has continued a strong January for game announcements with an indie highlights video focused on titles coming to the Switch in 2019. Among the news was a Wargroove release date, Crosscode coming to the Switch, and much more.
Firstly, the big one. Wargroove is a game that's hotly anticipated by many, not just here at USG. Wargroove will be releasing on February 1 for the Nintendo Switch.
Next, there's Double Kick Heroes, a side scrolling, bullet hell shooter with a hard focus on a metal soundtrack. Double Kick Heroes comes to Nintendo Switch this Summer.
When Ski Lifts Go Wrong was the next indie title shown off the Switch, a chaotic, physics-based platformer in the vein of the Trials games. When Ski Lifts Go Wrong is out right now for the Nintendo Switch.
Then there was Forager from Humble Bundle. A top-down dungeon-crawler with a killer soundtrack, Forager is "coming soon" to the Switch.
Inmost was definitely a standout of the Nindies presentation today. A sidescroller with an emphasis on pixel art and story from Chucklefish Games, Inmost is set to release at an unknown point in 2019 for the Switch. This was followed by Unruly Heroes, an impressive looking 2D action platformer from some devs behind the modern Rayman games. It's out now on Switch, plus PC and Xbox One. A PS4 version is coming later.
Next up, Crosscode. A top-down, bullet hell game of sorts with 16-bit graphics, Crosscode is actually already out for the PC, but will be coming to the Switch at some point later this year.
The Goat Simulator: The Goaty collection is out right now for the Switch. This package combines Goat Simulator, GoatZ (the DayZ parody), and Waste of Space (the Star Wars parody of sorts) into one game, with all DLC included.
Finally, there's SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech. As a turn-based battle game, it's quite the departure for a series with a big fan base at USG. It'll be releasing first for Nintendo Switch later in 2019.
