Some of the notable Switch games: Cuphead My Friend Pedro (Switch console exclusive) Rad (new Double Fine game) Super Crate Box (Vlambeer) Nuclear Throne (also Vlambeer) Blaster Master Zero 2 Cadence of Hyrule (basically it's a new Crypt of the Necrodancer with the Zelda license & music, AWESOME)
I'm a bit curious if My Friend Pedro is being toned down for the Switch or if that was just for this video. The developer hangs out on an indie dev group I am a part of and has been posting regular updates so I've seen tons of footage of it and it is a VERY violent / bloody game, but the footage in this video is all clean.
It seems like Nintendo has been ending every presentation with something Zelda-related. But it works every freakin' time! That music just instantly puts a smile on your face.
It dragged a bit for me during the more narrative focused stuff, but there was so much awesome procedurally generated/action goodness!
Fuck, YES, Blaster Master Zero 2, available right now for 10 bucks, with a crazy new parrying system! Yaaaay, Nuclear Throne, also available right now! Cuphead still looks absolutely amazing, and made for a great WTF moment. That isometric roguelike apocalypse game and the top down roguelike horror survival game both have a lot of promise. Katana Zero looks fucking awesome, that action pinball game seems super fun, and My Friend Pedro still looks awesome. The Doublefine game is intriguing, but choppy. OH, and that Power Stone-esque brawler with the wolf guy looks incredible! Even that weird Iditarod game looked kind of neat. And we have a huge indie sale coming up!
Kirk Scott had a great energy, too! Loved iiiit.
I kind of don't care anymore that the third-party support is so shitty. Switch indies are absolutely on fire. That said, where's my Spelunky?!
Cuphead! I bet it'll look gorgeous on the tiny screen. I wasn't as enamored with it as most, but it's a solid get for Switch.
Iditarod game doesn't seem like my cup of tea gameplay-wise, but it's certainly pretty.
Katana Zero looks pretty good. Like a 2D action-platformer take on Hotline Miami.
Creature in the Well is certainly an interesting take on top-down action. Pinball! I like these weird kind of fusions.
Blaster Master Zero 2 looks great! The first game was high quality but hampered by the fact that it was basically a remake of the original. No such limitations here, and it looks like they're expanding upon the formula in great ways. Cool surprise that it's available today, too.
eShop sale! I'll most likely pick up Iconoclasts, and possibly Yoku's Island Express.
While I'm not necessarily interested in this indie Zelda game, I'm very interested in the fact that Nintendo is now willing to lend their IP to indie developers. The possibilities are endless with that. So they're going to let Inti Creates make a Zelda II style Zelda game like they wanted to, right?
@Hinph Yeah, I hope this is a sign of things to come from Nintendo-indie partnerships and not just a one-off. Nintendo has a ton of great IP going unused that indie developers could do justice. And crossovers like Cadence of Hyrule are a great way to lure indies to Switch exclusivity and help them stand out in an eShop that is getting overstuffed with great indies.
I thought The Red Lantern looked really cool. That, Cuphead, and Cadence of Hyrule were my most exciting announcements. I also liked that one that seemed to be a post-apocalypse exploration game. Even with what seems like a fixed camera it looked neat.
