The giant of Kyoto, at Christmas, puts his … literally: the Advent Calendar of the indies for Nintendo Switch is open
Needless to do it on purpose, with impeccable timing, Nintendo Switch “stole our idea” (actually not) and subdivided a whole Indie World in the last days ofAdvent. Well yes, while we are intent on celebrating one of the best indie games released on the hybrid console, ironically the Big N has done the same. In fact, since yesterday, the Anglophone social channels of the crimson titan have been opening the windows of a metaphorical “home of the indies”, and as we have seen since the first announcements we have both updates on the development of different titles and authentic full-blown shadow drops.
The Advent Calendar (the official one) of indies on Nintendo Switch
The first announcement at the end of Advent, in the past 24 hours, has in fact included the surprise release on Nintendo Switch of two great little indie gems. Let’s talk about the case Mortal Shell: Complete Edition e you Floppy Knights. In addition to this, we also have a port of Pupperazzi, coming next year, in which we will have to photograph puppies. Next summer we will also see the first person narration title Roman Sands Re:Build, also coming to PC. We let you consult the most recent post on the Twitter profile of the Kyotense giant for the latest news from videogame craftsmanship.
