You can take a look at the best-selling Nintendo Switch Indie games below.
Streets of Rage 4 and Hades are my top picks from the games showcased in the Nintendo trailer.
Streets of Rage 4 is the sequel to the beat-em-up trilogy that first appeared on the Sega Mega Drive.
The new game features additional characters, new moves, a colourful new art style and lots of unlockables. It’s a really fantastic package.
“The all-time classic Streets of Rage, known as Bare Knuckle in Japan, is a trilogy of beat ‘em up known for this timeless gameplay and electronic dance influenced music. Streets of Rage 4 builds upon the classic trilogy’s gameplay with new mechanics, beautiful hand drawn visuals and a God tier soundtrack.
“An iconic series like Streets of Rage got its iconic characters: Axel, Blaze, Adam and other veterans reunited to clean up the streets. With some brand-new moves and kickass tracks to take a listen, our heroes are ready to dish out beatdowns to a fledgling group of ill-advised criminals in full force.”
Hades, meanwhile, is a roguelike action role-playing game with almost endless replay potential.
“Hades is a god-like rogue-like dungeon crawler that combines the best aspects of Supergiant’s critically acclaimed titles, including the fast-paced action of Bastion, the rich atmosphere and depth of Transistor, and the character-driven storytelling of Pyre.
“As the immortal Prince of the Underworld, you’ll wield the powers and mythic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the god of the dead himself, while growing stronger and unraveling more of the story with each unique escape attempt.”
With a steady reward system and randomly-generated level designs, no two playthroughs will ever be the same.
