During today’s Indie World presentation, Nintendo announced a plethora of games coming to the Switch console.

From the 20 indies games shown, there will be something for everyone to look forward to ranging from noir-punk to action-adventure to soulslike to platformers.

Here’s the list of games shown during today’s Nintendo presentation:

Another Crab’s Treasure: Developed by Aggro Crab, this crustacean-themed soulslike game puts you in an undersea world that’s on the verge of collapse. Playing as Kril the hermit crab, you will use the trash around you on the ocean floor as a shell to resist attacks from enemies larger than yourself. You will also go on a treasure hunt to discover the “dark secrets” behind the polluted ocean. There are over 50 potential shells to discover and plenty of dangerous enemies you will need to overcome. Another Crab’s Treasure will be released next year. It is also coming to Steam and “your favorite unconfirmed consoles.”

Noir-punk adventure game Gunbrella from Doinksoft and Devolver Digital was also announced. Here you play a woodsman on a quest for revenge, armed with the Gunbrella. During the game, your investigation becomes entangled with ghouls and gangsters, cops and cultists, and other bizarre characters in a world rapidly losing its natural resources. You will need to gather scraps and spare parts to upgrade your weapon to “glide, swing, dash, dive” and take out enemies in side-scrolling combat. Gunbrella launches on Nintendo Switch and PC next year.

Releasing later today is Mini Motorways from Dinosaur Polo Club. In the game, you are given control of the city’s traffic problems. You will need to draw and build roads to create a metropolis and then redesign your city to keep the traffic flowing. You will need to carefully manage upgrades such as highways and those tricky roundabouts to meet changing demands. The game has nearly 4 million players on Apple Arcade, Mac, and PC and new free content is dropping for all today with the “Night Lights” Update.

Created by a one-person development team and prototyped as part of a school contest, ElecHead from Nama Takahashi is a 2D puzzle-platformer where you play as a small robot named Elec in a facility. In the game, you are on a mission to bring light back to the world. You will activate walls, floors, platforms, and switches by touching them and making electricity run through them. You can also detach and throw Elec’s head to trigger things remotely. The only caveat is that if he doesn’t get his head back within 10 seconds, he’ll shut down. Basically, you will be using your head, literally and figuratively, to find a way out of the trap-ridden facility. The game is coming to Switch this summer and is currently available through Steam where it has a “very positive” rating. You can also grab it off GOG and Itch.io.

The game features over 140 songs and focuses on replayability. Soundfall was released today on the Epic Games Store, Steam, and Switch.

Coming this winter to Steam and Switch is Deadpan Games and Chucklefish’s Wildfrost. This tactical roguelike deck builder has you taking on the harsh elements by building and customizing your deck before setting off to put an end to the eternal frost. You can also customize and upgrade companion cards and expand your hub town during each run, unlock more cards, and encounter new challenges and events in this game that promises tons of replayability.
