In a pre-recorded video showcase, Nintendo announced various indie titles coming to Switch in the not-too-distant future.

The video showed the next game in the SteamWorld universe, CrossCode, provided a release date for turn-based strategy game Wargroove, and much more.

Wargroove is turn-based tactics game where you command army units in a battle between factions. It supports up to four players in the campaign, and in local and online multiplayer modes. You can also design battlefields and stories using the in-game editor and customization tools. The Chucklefish-developed title is now available for pre-order, and will release February 1 for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.

SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech is the next title set in the SteamWorld universe. The team-based card collecting RPG has an epic storyline, “billions” of potential decks to build, and a storybook-inspired art style. A release date and other platforms will be announced at a later date.

Other titles revealed in the video, and currently without a release date include: retro-inspired action-RPG CrossCode, metal rhythm-shooter Double Kick Heroes, story-driven puzzle-platformer Inmost, and 2D open-world crafting game Forager.
