Nintendo Switch owners will have plenty of AAA titles to choose from in the coming months, including Mario Tennis Aces and Octopath Traveler. Following Tuesday’s Nindies presentation, there will be a plethora of great indie options, too.

The standout additions include Banner Saga 3, Mark of the Ninja Remastered, and The Messenger, the latter of which is an 8-bit platformer reminiscent of Ninja Gaiden.

“Since the launch of Nintendo Switch, we’ve continued to be blown away with the amount of high-quality games coming from our passionate Nindie developers, and the positive fan reception for those experiences,” said Damon Baker, Nintendo of America’s Senior Manager for Publisher & Developer relations.
