Another short and sweet Nintendo showcase is behind us, with the focus of this 11 minute video presentation being the many "Nindie" partnerships that Nintendo have been fostering.

At this year's Game Developers Conference (GDC), Nintendo's head of third-party relations Damon Baker recapped the Switch's first year of indie games (or "Nindies", as the company calls them), pointing out major sales milestones and teasing some future titles. All of the games announced will be released on the Switch, as the 3DS was not mentioned during the showcase. You're in luck: Bomb Chicken from Nitrome was announced for Switch during the Ninties Showcase today.

Mark of the Ninja, Klei Entertainment's stealth side-scroller, is getting remastered for the Switch.

Fantasy Strike: Fighting game veteran David Sirlin of Sirlin Games tried to crowfund this accessible fighting game on Fig a year ago, but funding failed to reach 30% of its goal.

If you thought that Nerial and Devolver Digital's Reigns series would be a great fit on Nintendo Switch, apparently you're not alone.

- Just Shapes and Beats (Berzerk Studio): This "musical bullet hell" game might be a genre all its own! The Messenger launches on Switch this summer.

tinyBuild's latest game is heavily inspired by the gritty VHS-era B-movies, and lets players slay zombies and mutants in this top-down shooter.

Adult Swim Games and Rekim join forces to bring you Pool Panic, a wacky game where deserts and jungles are actual locales for cartoon games of pool.

That's the question asked by Bomb Chicken, a fast-paced game that combines action, puzzles and arcade gameplay.

Fantasy Strike - Easy-to-learn-hard-to-master 2D cell shaded fighter by Sirlin Games, coming in the summer.

The utterly gorgeous Light Fall from Bishop Games will release as a timed, console-exclusive this spring on Switch. The weird and wild game has the option to play in local multiplayer with up to four players. So the controls are obviously going to be simplified enough to only rely on the face buttons and the left and right bumpers.

Joining it is also Reigns: Kings & Queens. It releases on Nintendo Switch this spring, and will also be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. LUMINES REMASTERED launches on Nintendo Switch in spring.

The Messenger allows players to transform the game from an 8-bit platformer into a gloriously rendered 16-bit time-traveling adventure.
