Nintendo showed off some solid forward thinking when it’s come to indies this generation. Games like Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2 and ARMS have been great, but indie titles are what has kept the eShop rolling these first six months. Sure, you could have comfortably played Nintendo-published titles exclusively since the Switch’s launch, but we appreciate the variety we’ve seen offered by smaller games like Overcooked: Special Edition, Fast RMX, Thumper, Snake Pass and the utterly fantastic Shovel Knight. Games like these definitely stand on their own two feet, but they’re even better when played alongside Nintendo’s biggest hits. There’s just something about being able to play these games on the go that is turning the Switch into the best platform for indies out there.
