Nintendo’s Nindies Showcase Spring 2018 – Here’s Everything They Announced Today

No Abe I'm afraid...

Ok, so there was no Oddworld: Soulstorm to be found, (as we speculated). And from what we can tell, the big tease from Oddworld Inhabitants today seems to have been over Oddworld: Abe’s Origins: a new book that, shockingly, celebrates the origins of Abe – it’s via Kickstarter. That’s pretty cool, but we’re sure there’s more news on the way for Soulstorm (it’s apparently out this year).

  • Fantasy Strike – out summer
  • Banner Saga 1 and 2 – TBA
  • Banner Saga 3 – out summer
  • Just Shapes and Beats – out summer, first on Switch

You can catch the brief Direct-style showcase here:

It’s worth mentioning that some of these indie titles are bigger than others (Banner Saga, for example), but overall, it was another strong commitment from Nintendo to put the smaller guys out there front and centre on the Switch.
