A Bunch Of New Indies We've Been Eager For Are Coming To Switch Soon (Like CrossCode)

CrossCode is coming to Switch this year, so soon you’ll all be able to see what we’ve been raving about. Also in Nintendo indie news: the strategy game Wargroove is out next week, Goat Simulator hits Switch right now, and the people behind SteamWorld Dig are making a new card role-playing game called SteamWorld Quest.

CrossCode, which would have probably been one of my top 3 games of 2018 had I not started playing it in 2019, is the most exciting news in this morning’s Nintendo indies video. But there’s plenty more:

  • Wargroove, a spiritual successor to Advance Wars, is out February 1 and looks astounding.

  • The press material for SteamWorld Quest describes it as “a team-based card collecting role-playing game set to an epic story around what it means to be a hero.” Not exactly what I’d expect from the makers of the Metroidvania games SteamWorld Dig, but development studio Image & Form has been playing with new genres since they launched.

  • Other games coming to Switch include Double Kick Heroes, Inmost, Forager

  • Games out on Switch right now (surprise!) include Goat Simulator, When Ski Lifts Go Wrong, and Unruly Heroes.

For all the announcements and trailers and fancy sizzle footage, watch the full video above.


    SteamWorld Quest looks nice but it's not my kind of game, much as I loved SteamWorld Dig. I'll have to wait and see. Wargroove on the other hand, I was on board with it from day 1, can't wait!

    Unruly Heroes looks really nice too, very much like Rayman Odyssey / Legends which is no surprise.

      Did you try SteamWorld Heist?
      A very different style of game to dig but still very good. Worth a look to see if it tickles your fancy

        It's on my wishlist on the Switch, been waiting for a sale. Looks really good and much more my kind of thing.

    Quite a few interesting titles were on display. I'll definitely be getting Wargroove, SteamWorld Quest and Inmost. CrossCode looks awesome but it's the sort of game that gets a lot of hype, then I purchase it based on the hype before realising it's not for me, despite the fact it is objectively excellent.
