Today, Nintendo announced yet another deluge of cool indie games that are coming to the Switch. Chief among the reveals is the news that Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EPwhich first launched on the iPad in 2011 — is bringing its Zelda-inspired pixels to the platform in October. It’ll be the first time the game is available on a console. Similarly big is the announcement that mech vs. kaiju strategy game Into the Breach will be out on the Switch, and it’s available today.

The company also provided more details on some much-anticipated games that were previously announced. The dark, pixelated adventure Hyper Light Drifter is coming to the Switch on September 6th, and it will include some exclusive new outfits and weapons. Multiplayer fighter Towerfall, meanwhile, is coming to Nintendo’s tablet on September 27th, and it will include a new six-player mode and characters from the side-scroller Celeste.

One of the most exciting announcements is that renowned studio Supergiant is going to be making its debut on the Switch very soon. Bastion will be available on September 13th, while its follow-up Transistor is coming sometime in November. Nintendo also revealed that the adorable Animal Crossing-like adventure Mineko’s Night Market will make its console debut on the Switch, though it isn’t launching until early next year, as is the strange goose simulator Untitled Goose Game.

Nintendo’s tablet has quickly become the go-to destination for smaller indie games, including recent releases like Dead Cells and Pocket Rumble.
