Nintendo Nindies Showcase - August 28 - Roundup + Into the Breach launches on Switch today

It's time for some more indie game goodness, with Nintendo serving up a Nindies Summer Showcase, giving us a look at "multiple" unannounced indie games that are headed to the Nintendo Switch soon.

Into the Breach port is pretty nice - I've watched a bit of it when it first launched, and while I don't think it's something I want to play myself, it looked like a must buy for fans of turn-based tactical games. The short matches and small maps make it a good portable game too.

"One more announcement before we go"

*Random indie game*

I bet every smash fan got their bpm raising way too high with that sentence lmao
Yup. And the worst thing of all was that the game looked fucking awful.
Fuck that game and fuck those developers.

At least we're getting Bastion and Transistor this year. Too bad I've already got them on Steam though. Not sure I'd buy them just to play on the Switch at this point. Mineko looks adorable, but I'll wait for reviews before I decide to purchase that one.
