Nintendo Download: An Underground RPG

A solid week for Nintendo fans brings Undertale, Wasteland 2, Bastion, and a slew of other Nindies (indie games) to the Switch.

It’s an indie kind of week

Yes, this week is mainly indies (or Nindies if you’re so inclined) hitting Nintendo’s Switch. They’re pretty great though, and some of what’s coming up could probably be considered fairly big time.

Take indie hit Undertale for example. That game has been out on other platforms for some time, and seems to have a great fanbase. The same could be said for Wasteland 2, the game from the team that originally created Fallout’s universe. And for that matter, you could throw Bastion into the mix as well, since that game was a smash on mobile handsets.

Past all that, there are a lot of smaller releases as well. Scribblenauts, Surgeon Simulator, Siegecraft Commander, and the intriguing Shadow Fight 2 all look cool. Wow, that’s a lot of ‘S’-games.
