Nintendo Switch weekly eShop update: Indie mania

We find ourselves at yet another Thursday, which means that Nintendo has detailed the next batch of games hitting the eShop over the coming week. This time around, the focus is pretty much entirely on indie games, which is precisely what we’d expect after all of the marketing Nintendo has done on behalf of some of those indie titles recently. There are some much-loved games coming to Switch this week, so if you missed them on other platforms, now is a good chance to check them out.

Indie darling Undertale leads the charge this week. The quirky RPG has built a legion of fans on a variety of different platforms since launching in 2015, and it seems like a game that could be perfectly suited to the Switch’s portable form factor.

Undertale is being joined by the Switch version of Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut, which was actually one of the first examples of crowdfunding success for gaming projects. Another big name in the indie space, Bastion, is hitting the Switch today, more than seven years after it first released. Have a look at the full list of eShop releases below.
