One year after the launch of the Nintendo Switch, many indie games have made their way onto the hit console.

When the first two "Banner Saga" games release on Nintendo Switch, your choices will carry over to the third game. You're in luck: Bomb Chicken from Nitrome was announced for Switch during the Ninties Showcase today.

While the heyday of grandiose games being funded through Kickstarter has come and past, that doesn't mean there aren't smaller titles being funded with tens or hundreds of thousands of fans' dollars in recent years.

Not content with its action-packed Nintendo Direct live stream earlier this month, Nintendo returned with a showcase of indie games on Tuesday, revealing 14 new games that are headed to the Switch. When Mark of the Ninja Remastered releases this Fall, it will be the first time that the game is available outside of Xbox and PC.

At the moment Sirlin Games is now working on Fantasy Strike while it's in Early Access on Steam.

The full game will have 10 playable characters, multiple costumes per character, a single-player arcade mode, local PvP, online PvP, and a practice mode.

Other titles coming to Switch this spring include Garage from tinyBuild Games, and Pode from Henchman & Goon.

West of Loathing from Asymmetric Games is a slapstick comedy stick figure wild west open-world RPG.

Tiny Build's Garage is a top-down shooter inspired by gory VHS-era B-movies.

You can look for Fantasy Strike to launch this summer for home consoles and PC.

Lumines Remastered is a remaster of the acclaimed puzzle game by Tetsuya Mizuguchi.

In this real-time strategy game, players command an army of loyal bannermen as they gather resources and protect their citizens from an invading Viking horde. It has local multiplayer as well, so you can play against your friends when this releases on Nintendo Switch this spring.
