Nintendo have released a new video throwing the spotlight on some great looking indie games for the Switch.
There's a fair bit to unpack in the video. Along with games we've already seen on other consoles and PC, there are several that have somehow flown under my radar. The Gardens Between is a gorgeous time-bending puzzler releasing in September. Children of Morta came out of nowhere and is a day one purchase for me.
The insane body morphing shooter, Morphies Law and Prison Architect got a surprise release and are available right now on the eShop. I really like the look of Bad North but it appears to only be out in some regions.
We got another look at Monlighter , which is already out on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. I've been desperately waiting to play this one on my Switch and this new clip (without a confirmed release date) doesn't make the wait any easier. Everspace is making its way to the Switch and looks excellent. a Windjammers sequel was also teased. I still can't wrap my head around what the hell is going on in Baba is You. If anyone figures it out, please let me know.
FromSoftware's must-anticipated Samurai slasher now has a release date.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will release worldwide on March 22, Activision announced today during Gamescom.

Generation Zero, the upcoming open world shooter from Just Cause and Rage 2 devs, Avalanche Studios is shaping up to be a fantastic co-op experience.
Generation Zero's unique setting of an alternate Sweden in the 1980s, is a welcome breath of fresh air for the shooter genre. The game sees your peaceful country homeland invaded by a terrifying army of vicious machines.
Players will be able to fully customise a unique character and their weapons, while teaming up in squads of up to four players. The game also features a fully persistent world where enemies will continue to show any damage you deal if you aren't successful in fully decommissioning them.
Fox21 has secured the rights to develop a TV series based on DONTNOD Entertainment's recent blood sucking RPG, Vampyr. Wonderland Sound & Vision and DJ2 Entertainment are set to handle the television adaptation.
The production companies in question have helped create some amazing TV shows already like Sons of Anarchy, The Chi and The Americans, so the Vampyr franchise looks to be in good hands.
DONTNOD CEO Oskar Guilbert stated “we believe it is a fantastic premise for a television show. This is a new and exciting way for fans of the game, as well as the uninitiated, to enter and engage with VAMPYR’S rich, deep story. We cannot wait to see how the talented team at FOX21 will bring out the darkly atmospheric universe of our game into television.”
Halo fans can rest assured; Halo Infinite will not be a prequel or spinoff, despite its title lacking a definitive number.
343 lead writer Jeff Easterling addressed the question during a recent 343 Social Stream on Mixer (at the 1:22:20 mark).
"It is Halo 6. You should just consider it Halo 6," said Easterling. "Don't think of it as a weird prequel kind of thing. It's the next story. It's the next chapter in what is going on."
Developer Io Interactive has released a short video for the upcoming Hitman 2 (the first in a series of gameplay clips to come) titled "How to Hitman: Immersion".
In this video, we get another look at the games gorgeous Miami race day location and a brief look at some of the disguise options available to Agent 47 as he expertly blends in to the crowds despite his shiny bald melon.
The game features more unique NPC models and larger hyper-detailed locations than ever before, giving players a wealth of options when approaching each assassination contract. The video also touches on some of the different outcomes, depending on how players decided to dispatch their targets.
The news of today's acquisition of the TimeSplitters IP by THQ Nordic will be music to the ears of many.
