Four Indie Faves, Including Thimbleweed Park, Confirmed For Nintendo Switch


It seems that the Nintendo Switch is more than capable of drawing the attention of indie game developers, as it's already offering a ton of great lower-budget games for players of all ages to enjoy. And now, it's got a quartet of new titles that will be joining the party!

First up, Team Meat – the developers of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth+, will be returning to the system with a port of its hit platforming game Super Meat Boy. The game, which found big attention on the Xbox 360 before being re-released on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita with a new soundtrack, was revealed by the team on Twitter, though it did not indicate a release date as of yet. It should be expected sometime this year.

Not to be outdone, Jools Watsham, who created the Mutant Mudds series, followed suit with his own tweet, indicating that some form of the 8-bit style platformer would be coming to the system as well. Again, no release date, but at least we know it's coming.

As for the third game, Nintendo noted that the third game is none other than the "negative space shooter" Inversus, which is slated to arrive sometime this fall under the name Inversus Deluxe. The game is expected to introduce new features, including additional maps, ranked multiplayer and additional powers.

Last but not least, the point and click adventure Thimbleweed Park is coming to the Nintendo Switch next month, bringing its classic visual style to the system for all to enjoy. It's also set to arrive on PlayStation 4 a bit sooner, starting on August 22nd.


So there you go – four great titles that are on the way to Nintendo's fun handheld/console hybrid. Make some space on your memory card now!
