Nintendo’s latest Indie World showcase featured more than 20 new indie games (and DLC for indie games) coming to the Nintendo Switch, with some of those titles dropping... right now. Here’s a look at the biggest announcements from April’s Indie World showcase.

Mineko’s Night Market

Meowza Games’ narrative adventure-sim is coming to Nintendo Switch on Sept. 26. Players can take on jobs, befriend townsfolk, and craft goods at the weekly night market, but that’s not all: Mineko’s Night Market also promises parades, cat races, and stage performances.

My Time at Sandrock

Pathea Games’ sequel to My Time at Portia has players restoring a post-apocalyptic desert community to its former glory by scavenging for relics and resources, assembling machines to transform a derelict workshop into a finely tuned facility, and battling monsters in melee combat. My Time at Sandrock is coming to Switch this summer, after having already been in early access on Steam for the past year.

Rift of the Necrodancer

The rhythm game spinoff of the Crypt of the Necrodancer series features lane-based combat (à la Guitar Hero) in battles against monsters, each with a different movement pattern. Boss battles and Rhythm Heaven-like minigames are included in Rift of the Necrodancer, coming to Switch later this year.
