Did you catch Nintendo’s Indie World presentation today on YouTube? Nintendo showed off more than 20 indie hits on their way to the Switch, including a handful that are out later today. Don’t worry if you missed it, we kept track.

First off we’ve got the big news. Supergiant’s Hades, that silly Epic Game Store exclusive, is coming to the Nintendo Switch this fall. You can read more about that here. Another big deal is a free multiplayer update coming to Untitled Goose Game on September 23. Mind you that’s across all versions of the game, including Steam, which launches that very day.

Rather than go through the game announcements as they appeared in the presentation, let’s start with the games coming out today.

Out Today

Spiritfarer makes its debut on Nintendo Switch later today. It’s a cosy management sim about dying and saying goodbye. Sounds uplifting!

Raji: An Ancient Epic, a game based on ancient Hindu and Balinese mythology, launches today as a timed console exclusive on Switch.

  • Hades coming to Switch with PC cross-save support is extremely dangerous and I won’t stand for it. How am I expected to do anything else if I can just play Hades anytime, anywhere?
