Every game Nintendo announced during Gamescom 2019

Nintendo Switch may not have been the biggest presence at Gamescom this year, but it was one of the most thrilling. Not only did we get some old classics to add to Nintendo's portable console, but some completely brand new indies.

For this list, we'll include all the new games that Nintendo announced either during Nintendo Indie World showcase or the opening show.

Ori and the Blind Forest

Ori and the Blind Forest was originally released during 2015, but a remastered version with new areas, abilities and modes came out a year later. This version, titled Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition, will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch.

Ori and the Blind Forest is set to release on September 27th, 2019.

Risk of Rain 2

Risk of Rain is a rogue-like that has already made plenty of waves when it was first released on the PC. With Risk of Rain 2, you can either play by yourself or with a group of friends.

Sound good? It'll be coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime this summer, so make sure to recruit your friends before diving into this fun game.


Eastward stood out to us during the Indies Showcase, and we're eager to know more about it. Described as an action-adventure game with inspiration from 90's Japanese animation, you'll be put in the shoes of a hard-working miner and a small girl named Sam as they investigate the post-apocalyptic world they live in.

Eastward is set to come out on Nintendo Switch in 2020.
