Everything You Missed From Today’s Nintendo Indie World

A new Oxenfree and a bunch of really great looking indie titles.

Nintendo held an Indie World presentation today, where the platform holder spotlighted a number of new indie games and updated some others with release dates for the Switch. Previous shows have unveiled games like Hollow Knight: Silk Song and Axiom Verge 2 but also host a number of really cool looking games.

If you didn’t get the chance to watch the 20-minute presentation, here’s what Nintendo had to show off this time around.

  • Road 96 is a procedurally-generated adventure game portraying a road trip gone awry releasing later this year.
  • Aerial_Knight’s Never Yield is runner with parkour-focus taking place in a Tokyo-style Detroit with an actual Detroit DJ providing the music. Releasing surprisingly soon on May 19.
  • Last Stop and Hindsight are two dramatic Annapurna titles, with Last Stop coming July 2021 and Hindsight later this year.
  • OlliOlli World, the newest in the 2D skateboarding series, goes open this time around with NPCs, side quests, chill vibes, and plenty of tricks. Releasing this Winter.
  • The Longing is a game about waiting 400 days in isolation to wake up a king and the dread surrounding your daily life. It releases later today.

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge gets a new gameplay trailer and an announcement that Tee Lopes from Streets of Rage 4 and Sonic Mania fame is composing the soundtrack. The game releases later this year.
  • Cris Tales, a beautiful-looking time-traveling JRPG releases on Switch on July 20.
  • GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon is rogue-like action game from Konami who is apparently now an indie publisher, I don’t know. It releases next year.

  • Skul: The Hero Slayer is a 2D action platformer roguelike where you gain different powers by replacing the skeleton protagonist’s head, out this Summer.
