So far, Nicalis has announced two games for the Nintendo Switch (which will both be available at retail and on the Nintendo eShop):

  • The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+, releasing at launch;
  • Redout, releasing later this year.

But it looks like the publisher has other games in the works, namely:

  • 1001 Spikes
  • Cave Story
  • Hydra Castle Labyrinth

Here’s the picture Nicalis shared on Twitter yesterday (which ended up deleted, due to it showing too much of the Nintendo Switch UI):

Those games have been added to the Upcoming Releases page!
