In a new indie highlights video filled with turn-based, role-playing and platforming action, Nintendo showcased many of the new and upcoming independent games coming to the Nintendo Switch system. The video revealed a Feb. 1 launch date for the turn-based strategy game Wargroove (Chucklefish), the announcement of the next game in the acclaimed SteamWorld universe, SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech (Image & Form Games / Thunderful Publishing) and more indie news.

Watch the video here:

In Wargroove, now available for pre-purchase, players choose their Commander and wield their army’s units in a war between battling factions. Up to four players* can strategically sway the battle in their favor as they progress through the campaign, challenge each other in local and online multiplayer modes** or design battlefields and stories with the easy-to-use in-game editor and customization tools.

WARGROOVE

SteamWorld Quest is a team-based card collecting role-playing game set to an epic story around what it means to be a hero. With billions of potential decks to build, tongue-in-cheek humor, a storybook-inspired art style and memorable characters, the game is a unique addition to the SteamWorld franchise.
