Nintendo just announced 20 new games coming to the Nintendo Switch, and one of them is a new sequel to a beloved franchise.
On Wednesday afternoon, Nintendo broadcast its latest YouTube stream full of announcements. Nintendo's focus during the stream was on indie games — in under half an hour, Nintendo revealed 20 games from a broad spectrum of independent developers.
The big showstopper was "Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes," but there were plenty of other standouts. A new adventure in the "Super Meat Boy" series kicked off the show — the first game is known for being a brilliantly designed 2D platformer, like the original "Super Mario Bros." trilogy.
In "Super Meat Boy Forever," the game has evolved in terms of gameplay and structure. It arrives on the Switch in 2018.
Another standout was "Morphie's Law," a ridiculous-looking new third-person shooter that's scheduled to arrive "this winter" on the Switch.
In "Morphie's Law," your goal is to shoot other enemies and reduce their physical mass. The more of their mass that you reduce, the larger your equivalent body part becomes. Shooting a lot of enemies in the head? Your player's head will increase in size as a result. If it sounds bizarre, that's because it looks bizarre. It also looks pretty unique and fun.
And then there's "Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes," a surprise revival of a long-dormant series. The franchise is known for being as stylish as it's gameplay is brutal, and the latest entry looks to continue that trend.
You'll once again play as Travis Touchdown, and he'll once again be equipped with his notorious "beam katana." If the first trailer is any indication, "Travis Strikes Again" is more of the anime-esque thrillride fans loved in previous games.
Here's the full list of games revealed on Wednesday, and their release dates:
