Today’s Nindie Showcase brought the exclusive heat, seriously something for everyone!
What? You haven’t watched it yet!? Do yourself a favor:
If you don’t come away simply impressed after watching that flood of Nindies, you don’t have a video-game-pulse!
Host of today’s showcase, Senior Manager of Partner Management, Damon Baker, had this to say about the Nintendo Switch’s vast lineup of Nindie titles:
“Our teams have been working closely with independent publishers and developers to secure a constant flow of innovative content that showcases the fun of playing games. …It is our mission to prioritize unique original experiences, and curate an amazing lineup of content that feels perfectly at home on Nintendo Switch.”
Damon, you’ve done that and more, based off this showcase and infograph:
Many exclusives are coming, and they’re coming oh-so-soon to the Nintendo Switch!
It doesn’t start off any better than with Shin’en Multimedia’s Fast RMX, see for yourself:

You won’t have to wait long for this hark to the NES era, Blaster Master Zero:
Blaster Master Zero is a 8-bit style top-down & side-view 2D action-adventure game that harkens back to the golden age of the NES. Blaster Master Zero uses the original 1988 NES title “Blaster Master” from Sunsoft as a base, with the addition of new areas and bosses, new gameplay elements such as extra sub-weapons, improved gameplay, a more robust scenario, refined and expanded exploration mechanics, and more.
Inti Creates’ Blaster Master Zero will be available Thursday, March 9th for $9.99!
And who could forget this Kickstarter funded, now Switch Console exclusive, Pocket Rumble:
Pocket Rumble is a streamlined, beginner-friendly 2D fighting game inspired by SNK’s classic fighters for the Neo Geo Pocket Color. It retains all the gameplay elements that make traditional Street Fighter-style fighters great, but reduces the level of execution and memorization necessary to the bare minimum!
Chucklefish has yet reveal Pocket Rumble’s March launch date and price is TBA!
Commander Video is back, and he’s a Nintendo Switch exclusive in Runner 3:
Not too much is known about Choice Provision’s Runner 3, but we look forward to getting to more info before it runs into our Switch later this Fall.
So what do you think?
This doesn’t list all the timed exclusives the Nintendo Switch will be seeing too: Steam World Dig 2, GoNNER, Graceful Explosion Machine, Mr. Shifty, and Shakedown Hawaii, just to name a few!
The Nindies are showing their NCL support in droves, and they’re making Nintendo their exclusive platform to boot!
