Fast RMX 
\n

The sequel to Fast Racing Neo from the Wii U, Fast RMX comes to the Switch with all the previous game's content and more. Including new tracks and racing machines, the game even has 4-player split screen multiplayer and online multiplayer with up to eight Switch systems.

\n

This is a game for all those people looking for a new F-Zero game or even a game to play with friends that don't own a Switch. It's a fast paced and incredibly challenging racing experience that even supports split-screen play.

\n

\n

These and many other games on the e-shop are all great titles worth your time and money. You just have to take the time to look. And when you find them, share them in the comments below so others can find these great games.

KAMIKO 
\n

Kamiko is a very small, very cheap game. You play through five small levels as one of three characters, each with their own weapon and attacks to go with it. The goal in each level is simple, find and charge four shrines in order to access a boss. If you've ever played Titan Souls the bosses here feel very reminiscent of the bosses in that.

\n

If you're the kind of person that likes time trials, the game even times you and keeps your records. Kamiko is a simple little fun game that's good if you're looking for something super cheap.

Snake Pass 

\n

Snake Pass is a collectothon with very unique movement mechanics. You play as a snake named Noodle and traverse the levels by moving like a snake.

\n

By slithering, wrapping yourself around poles, and performing other snake-like movements, you traverse diverse levels collecting everything you need to complete the level and more. The style feels very similar to Banjo-Kazooie, though the only connection between the two are the composer Grant Kirkhope. If you're a fan of Banjo-Kazooie or indie games with really unique mechanics, you should definitely pick up Snake Pass .

VOEZ 

\n

Voez is a rhythm game that was originally free to play on smartphones. However, on Switch, you pay one price and get the whole game from the get go. It also stands out because it is currently the only game on the console that can only be played in handheld mode because all the controls are on the touchscreen.

\n

Voez offers a large library of original tracks that offers a challenge to even the most hardcore rhythm game fan. If you like rhythm games and own a Switch, you should definitely pick this one up.

Shovel Knight

\n

Shovel Knight was one of the first big Kickstarter success stories. Released in 2014, it took the gaming world by surprise with simple yet challenging 2D platforming gameplay, a great story with humorous dialogue, and a nostalgic 8-bit art style. 

\n

Originally, the biggest selling point for the Switch version of Shovel Knight was that the "Treasure Trove" expansion would first be released on the Switch, which included the "Shadow of Torment" campaign and the gender swap mode. Though, by now, that's out on all other systems, too.

\n

Regardless, Shovel Knight is an awesome game that received acclaim from both critics and gamers alike. That alone should put it on your wishlist.

It's been a little over four months since the release of Nintendo's latest console, the Nintendo Switch. Since launch, the console has been incredibly successful, flying off the shelves faster than Nintendo can stock them. But there's arguably been a dearth of great games for the console. The most notable game for the system so far has been The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which absorbed even those who'd sworn off the franchise.

\n

But other than Breath of the Wild, what else is there to play on the Switch? Maybe you've already grown tired of the game or maybe you were never interested in it in the first place. Either way, there are some great games on the Switch that you can play right now, even if you aren't interested in Nintendo games at all  -- and you simply love the idea of having all your games on the go.

Skylanders: Imaginators

The original Skylanders spawned the toys-to-life craze that Disney Infinity and Nintendo’s Amiibos followed quickly after. A simple, kid-friendly platforming adventure game, Skylanders: Imaginators allows players to put Skylanders figurines onto the Portal of Power, which allows them to control the characters in-game. Imaginators brings in a new feature -- customizable characters. Unfortunately, the Switch port of the game will not support Traps and Vehicles from some of the previous entries in the series.

From the debut release, Just Dance games have been a staple on Nintendo systems. The 2017 edition already released on the Wii, Wii U, and other consoles, but not launching on the newest system would be a major mistake. The Joycon remotes can be used just like the Wii Remotes are, as they track motion within the controller themselves. The base game contains around 40 songs, with much more available for purchase through the e-Shop.

One of the best examples of modern 2-D side-scrollers, Shovel Knight and its expansions "Plague of Shadows" and "Specter of Torment" will debut on the Nintendo Switch. The original game and Plague of Shadows were critically acclaimed and considered the best homage to classic 8-bit side-scrollers. The new expansion, "Specter of Torment," has players taking control of the Reaper in an all new story. The Switch version will have two player co-op as well.

A cute indie-like title that is, unfortunately, likely to fly under the radar, Snipperclips is a cooperative game where players can cut each other up into different shapes in order to solve puzzles and complete levels. The game supports up to four players, and like 1-2 Switch, is guaranteed to generate laughter as players either work together to progress through the game or purposely cut each other up to frustrate the other players.

The Nintendo Switch has just released and it's brought with it 12 launch titles for gamers to choose from. Zelda Breath of the Wild is the obvious choice for most Nintendo fans, but for those uninterested in the series or needing something else to play while they take breaks from their long adventures, there’s a variety of interesting titles to choose from, both digitally and in stores.

Nintendo Shows Off It's Indies With a New "Nindies" Showcase https://www.gameskinny.com/6p5fg/nintendo-shows-off-its-indies-with-a-new-nindies-showcase https://www.gameskinny.com/6p5fg/nintendo-shows-off-its-indies-with-a-new-nindies-showcase Tue, 28 Feb 2017 17:40:00 -0500 David Fisher

Nintendo's strong support of the indie scene has been fairly strong in the last few years, and with the Nintendo Switch coming out just a few days from now, Nintendo gave us a look at the future of their indie title support with today's "Nindies Showcase." While some were games that we have been looking forward to for some time now, there were some new titles thrown into the mix.

So let's take a look, shall we?

SteamWorld Dig 2

Starting off the showcase was none other than SteamWorld Dig 2. Fans of the well-reviewed SteamWorld Dig will now be able to take it on the go on the Nintendo Switch.

While we don't know much about the title just yet, the game is a Metroidvania title much like the first title. The story is also centered around a young steambot in search of a lost friend, and must dig deep into the world to find them.

SteamWorld Dig 2 is expected to launch in the summer of 2017.

Yooka-Laylee

More anticipated than unexpected, Yooka-Laylee was also shown off during the Nindies Showcase. Inspired and created by the team responsible for Banjo-Kazooie, Yooka-Laylee is the spiritual successor of the popular Nintendo 64 series. While it was originally expected to come out on the Wii U, fans who are now transferring over from the dying console can at least be glad to know that the Switch will be hosting the title in its stead.

It should also be noted that the Nintendo Switch receiving Yooka-Laylee also means that it will be the only way of getting a portable version of the title. The title is also expected to release sooner than later, according to the presenter.

Other Team 17 Titles

The Nintendo Switch showcase also made a note that two other titles will be coming to the console. The first is The Escapists 2While this cult favorite strategy title was already announced in the late part of last year, it has now been revealed that it will be receiving a sequel on the Nintendo Switch as well.

The other title revealed was Overcooked, a multiplayer cookoff title in which players try to successfully finish as many meals as possible. The version coming to the Nintendo Switch is a special edition containing all of the DLC found in earlier releases of the title, and promises to be a fun party game for those interested.

Both Overcooked and The Escapists 2 are expected to come out later this year.

Gonner

Gonner is a roguelike platformer in which the protagonist -- Ikk -- tries to find a gift for his friend Sally. The game is procedurally generated, and players can expect to pick up all sorts of abilities and upgrades in their attempts to find the best gift possible in the darkness of this platformer.

Gonner will be a timed exclusive for the Nintendo Switch, and is expected to release later in 2017.

Dandara

Long Hat House's 2D platformer, Dandara, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in the summer of 2017. While it is also on Google Play and the App Store, the Switch version of the title will have bonus features -- including HD Rumble support.

Kingdom Two Crowns

Kingdom Two Crowns is another title getting new features on the Nintendo Switch. The original title, which can be found on the Apple Store, will be updated for the Nintendo Switch -- with one of the new features being a new co-op mode. It will also be released sometime later in 2017.

Runner 3

Runner 3 is coming to the Nintendo Switch as an exclusive title. This is the third title in the quirky on-rail platformer series, and is expected to come to the console in fall of 2017.

Blaster Master-Zero

Anyone who is an owner of the NES classic Blaster Master will be excited to know that a revival of the title, dubbed Blaster Master-Zero, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. The developer is none other than Inti Creates -- the developer responsible for other revivals such as Azure Striker Gunvolt and older titles like Megaman Zero.

The game will be released simultaneously for both the Nintendo Switch and 3DS on March 9th.

Flipping Death

Flipping Death is a puzzle-solving game in which you take control of Penny, a recently deceased woman whose job is fulfilling the wishes of the deceased. To do this, Penny must possess the bodies of the living and get them to do whatever task she has been assigned. The catch? She can't fully control them.

This quirky and fun puzzle solver doesn't have a solid release date yet, but is expected to release sometime later in 2017 or in 2018.

Graceful Explosion Machine

Graceful Explosion Machine is a side-scrolling arcade shooter that has you controlling none other than the GEM itself through multiple colorful worlds. With 4 different weapons at their disposal, players will have to navigate the worlds carefully while trying to rack up the highest score possible. The game will also feature HD Rumble support, and so you can expect to feel every single thing you do in this shooter title.

Graceful Explosion Machine is expected to release in April 2017.

Mr. Shifty

Mr. Shifty is a top-down action game that has you taking control of the titular character in various heists involving combat, and teleportation powers. The game features 18 stages with over 140 levels, as well as one-shot-kill combat. Players will have to be on their toes to make sure that each task gets completed with expert precision.

Mr. Shifty will be a timed exclusive on the Nintendo Switch, and comes out in April.

TumbleSeed

TumbleSeed is a physics based roguelike platformer that has players taking control of a seed that is trying to save its home. By mastering seed powers, players will have to carefully climb the mountain in an attempt to accomplish this adventurous task.

We're not kidding... and neither are the developers.

TumbleSeed will be coming to the Nintendo Switch this Spring, and will also take advantage of the HD Rumble.

Shakedown: Hawaii

The successor to Retro City RampageShakedown: Hawaii is a top down shooter that evokes much of the 16-bit era in terms of gameplay. The title is expected to release in April, and will be a timed exclusive for the Nintendo Switch.

ChuckleFish Games

Pocket Rumble

Pocket Rumble is a 2D fighter that evokes an art style reminiscent of old handheld consoles like the GameBoy. It promises to be a deep fighting game with mechanics not often seen in other titles. Pocket Rumble also features HD Rumble support, so that players will feel the difference between stronger and weaker hits.

Pocket Rumble comes out on the Nintendo Switch as a console exclusive later in March.

Wargroove

Wargroove is a ChuckleFish game that's fairly reminiscent of Intelligent Systems' Advance Wars series -- but in a medieval setting. The game will feature 12 campaigns and 12 different commanders. It will also support both local and online multiplayer functionality for up to 4 players.

Wargroove will also offer a feature rarely seen in the tactical RPG realm -- the ability to create your own battlefields. As such, expect a lot of Advance Wars map remakes once players get their hands on this title.

Wargroove will be coming out later in 2017.

Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley has finally been announced as a Nintendo Switch title, and will also be the first console to support multiplayer for the game. Not much else was said about the title, however, but players should be on the lookout for more information before it launches in the Summer of 2017.

That's it for now!

Plenty of indie titles are on their way to the Nintendo Switch, and plenty more have yet to come. The titles so far make for a strong lineup for the Nintendo Switch, a console that will need more 3rd party support to make up for the space between 1st party titles.

The Nintendo Switch is already out! From the Switch's portable nature to the utility of the Joy-Cons, this new Nintendo console shows a lot of promise.

But what about the games? While the first year is full of interesting titles in which to invest your time, the launch lineup itself is quite small. Luckily, there are a few games that are must-plays for the new Nintendo console. Here are 3 launch titles you just have to get.

 

Fast RMX

While only an eShop title, Fast RMX is essential for anyone wanting some F-Zero-like racing. Previously known as Fast Racing NEO, Fast RMX is an remix meant to show the power the Nintendo Switch possesses. Showcasing the Nintendo Switch's hardware, Fast RMX runs at a stellar 60 FPS at 1080p resolution. This graphical fidelity is used to create beautiful tracks for the player to race in. Speed through stunning storms, fantastic canyons, and colorful cities.

Fast RMX focuses on adrenaline fueled racing to keep players engaged. Players must use a phasing system to gain speed and win the 10 Cups on offer. For those looking for friendly competition, Fast RMX offers 4-player split screen racing and 8-player online action. At a price point of $19.99, Fast RMX is also the cheapest title of this list. Engage in fast paced racing with Fast RMX.

 

Super Bomberman R

Super Bomberman R marks the grand return of the enjoyable Bomberman series. Considered a premier party/action game, Bomberman pits up to eight online players against each other in maps reminiscent of previous Bomberman games. For local multiplayer, you can have up to four players per Switch battle each other. Engage in energetic combat as you bomb each other into oblivion. 

For those looking for a single-player campaign, don't worry. There is a 50-level campaign that can be played either solo or with a friend. In said campaign, take part in five boss battles and defend the world from the Evil Emperor Buggler. For those interested in explosive combat, you can't go wrong with Super Bomberman R.

 

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is clearly the killer app for the Nintendo Switch's launch. Adventure through an open-world as you explore dungeons, find treasure, and save the world. Taking a different direction than recent Zelda games, Breath of the Wild focuses on a fully explorable world, one that is not blocked by item progression. You can take on the final boss from the beginning, but, of course, it would extremely difficult to do so.

Breath of the Wild still shares many similarities to its predecessors, primarily the first game. Exploration is key and dungeons are laid out in a way that challenges the player. Combat is similar to the 3D Zeldas, but relies more heavily on different bows and weapons. With Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, be prepared to experience Zelda like you never have before.

These games stand above the rest of the Switch's launch library. With these games, the Nintendo Switch can provide hours of entertainment right off the bat. The Nintendo Switch is on store shelves right now, retailing for $299 in the U.S.
