The Nintendo Indie World presentation recently concluded last April 19, 2023. The showcase featured a roster of more than 20 indie games coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2023 and beyond.
Among the presentation’s many highlights was the reveal of Blasphemous 2, along with the game’s first trailer and launch reveal of summer 2023. The showcase also dropped the news that the slapstick RPG Shadows Over Loathing. The game is chock-full of mobsters, monsters, and mysteries, and it got released on the eShop after the event.
To see this stunning amount of creativity from the indie development community is a true delight. With the latest diverse lineup of independent games shown today, players can find Nintendo Switch games to take them on journeys far from home while still at home, or anywhere else they choose to play.
