All the indie games Nintendo revealed in its presentation, and the ones it didn’t

by Joey Davidson | February 28, 2017

Earlier today, Nintendo hosted a livestream presentation focusing on the indie games bound for the Nintendo Switch. Some of them were outright exclusives, while others had some exclusive Switch features.

At the end of the show, they offered up the featured image below:

By my count, Nintendo only talked about 17 games during their presentation. The press release that we received after the presentation, though, indicates that “more than 60 quality indie games are confirmed for Nintendo Switch this year alone.”

Yep, that’s more than 60

If all of those games actually hit in 2017, which I doubt they will, we’ll have at least one quality title to choose from every single week. That is, of course, assuming some of those aren’t so quality. I will say that a lot are ports, like Thumper. The ports are of good games, so hopefully Nintendo’s actually curating like they say they are.

The Switch releases on March 3, 2017. That’s this Friday.
