Nintendo Switch owners are once again flush with choice when it comes to new indie games for the platform. This week’s batch of Nintendo eShop games includes roguelike rhythm game Crypt of the Necrodancer, charming adventure game Night in the Woods and the original SteamWorld Dig.

Crypt of the Necrodancer: Switch Edition and Night in the Woods are priced at $19.99. SteamWorld Dig is available for $9.99. All three hit the eShop today.

Also on Switch this week is Dandara ($11.99), a sharp looking 2D platformer that plays with gravity and Metroidvania-style mechanics, and Mercenary Kings Reloaded ($19.99), an updated version of Tribute Games’ platformer-shoot ‘em up. Those two games will hit the Switch eShop on Feb. 6.
