Nintendo has just released its Nindies Showcase video, and there are plenty of exciting new games on their way, such as new Legend of Zelda spin-off Cadence of Hyrule, a Switch version of Cuphead, Stranger Things 3 The Game, and tons more.
One of the biggest announcements in this year’s Nindies Showcase is the upcoming Cadence of Hyrule, a Crypt of the NecroDancer and Legend of Zelda mashup. Playing as Link or Zelda, you’ll be able to boogie your way on a musical journey through a randomly generated, Zelda-themed overworld. When it comes to boss fights, every beat counts!
Another game to look out for is the arrival of Cuphead, the run and gun homage to 1930s animation, on Nintendo Switch. The rewardingly challenging, hand-animated platformer will be out on April 18, and it’s available for pre-purchase right away.

Alternatively, head back to Hawkins, Indiana, if you dare – Stranger Things 3: The Game is coming to Switch on July 4, the same day as the next season of the hit Netflix show.
Two of indie developer Vlambeer’s most beloved games will also be joining the Switch lineup, as well as a brand new offering to boot. Nuclear Throne is out right now, Super Crate Box is coming in April along with a brand new, Switch-exclusive multiplayer mode, and a collection of Vlambeer games called Vlambeer Arcade will be on its way later this year.
