Superhot, Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition, and more coming to the Nintendo handheld

One the eve of Gamescom 2019 Nintendo revealed a chunky selection of indie games that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch soon. Some of the biggest highlights in Nintendo’s Indie World livestream were Superhot, Hotline Miami, Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition, Risk of Rain 2, and Torchlight 2, among many others. This adds on to the extensive lineup of triple-A releases that Nintendo has scheduled for the Switch in the final quarter of 2019 as well as in early 2020.

The Definitive Edition is scheduled to launch on Nintendo Switch on Sept. 27.
