Nintendo Switch

The Switch is days away from launch, and in preparation Nintendo announced a massive list of indie titles that will be coming to the console at some point in 2017. While many of the titles announced won’t be out until later on in the year, the huge amount of indie support is still a sign that Nintendo is taking indie developers seriously on the Switch. Additionally, despite the fact that many of these titles are ports from other consoles, hopefully Nintendo will be able to keep this momentum going with future indie games going forward.

Some of the biggest highlights coming to the new console include Stardew Valley (sometime this summer, with the Switch debuting a new multiplayer feature), Overcooked: Special Edition (later this year, with support HD Rumble), Tumbleseed (this spring), and Yooka-Laylee (“soon”).
