The latest Indie World livestream has unveiled a bunch of new indie titles for Nintendo Switch, including Torchlight 3, Subnautica, and Hades.

Although rumours persist that a ‘proper’ Nintendo Direct might be coming later this month the only thing so far has been an Indie World, and a lot of its games are being released straight away.

Spiritfarer, Takeshi & Hiroshi, Raji: An Ancient Epic, A Short Hike, Manifold Garden, and Evergate are all launching today, which never seems a good idea if any of them are hoping to get any publicity via reviews but there you go.

The biggest news of the event was probably that the marvellous Untitled Goose Game is getting a free co-op mode on 23 September, as well as a physical edition a few days later on 29 September.

Other new announcements included the fact that Hades, the new game from Bastion developer Supergiant Games, will be out this autumn and will feature a cross-save option with the PC version so you can swap saves between the two.

Hypnospace Outlaw, which until now has also been PC-only, will be out on 27 August, while Subnautica and its sequel Below Zero will be arriving early next year.

Garden City, also due out next year, also looked interesting, in a vaguely Stardew Valley kind of a way, as did management sim Bear & Breakfast about running a B&B in the forest… as a bear.

Card Shark is, to our knowledge, the only game about being a professional card cheat in 18th century France, while the little showreel at the end also revealed that Capybara’s Grindstone is coming to Switch this autumn.

None of that is the sort of news likely to leave anyone giddy with excitement but it’s all good stuff anyway, and as an added bonus there’s currently a sale on for indie titles on the eShop.
