In of all things, a Cat Mario video.

A video on the Japanese-language Nintendo YouTube account has revealed a host of new indie titles for the Switch.

The video is part of the "Cat Mario" series and refers to "Nyandies" ahead of this weekend's BitSummit indie game festival in Japan. Among the footage of released and announced titles is the first console footage of Owlboy, a Steam release from late last year that was in development for a decade. Also shown in the video are previous Wii U title YIIK and the newest title from Has-Been Heroes/Trine developers Frozenbyte, Nine Parchments, plus footage of RIME and Mighty Gunvolt Burst.

No release timeframes have been given for any of these titles, but news on them will come over the next few weeks.

Owlboy is a pretty big get tho.

That said... My poor wallet. I will be buying all these games.

Helsinki, Finland, 19th May, 2017

Frozenbyte is excited to announce that the co-operative blast'em up game Nine Parchments is coming to Nintendo Switch™!

A new trailer announcing the Nintendo Switch version is out:


Frozenbyte CEO Lauri Hyvärinen commented on the announcement:

"We love Nintendo Switch! We've been ecstatic about the success of our roguelike action game Has-Been Heroes, and we love all the improvements made to the development environment, it's a great platform! Nine Parchments is a wonderful co-op game and feels like a perfect fit for the system. We can't wait to unleash the wizard mayhem later this year!"

About Nine Parchments

A group of drop-out wizard apprentices decide to skip their training for a quick path to the Nine Parchments.

As the wannabe wizards rapidly discover powerful new spells and ignore all safety aspects, it's natural that their hasty progress results in lots of unwanted deaths...


•  Wield the power of the elements and master a diverse and ever-changing arsenal of spells

•  Unlock new playable characters, wizard hats and magical staves

•  Level up and train your characters in the magical arts, but choose your path wisely!

•  Battle strange creatures & mighty bosses in a breathtakingly beautiful world, set in the Trine universe

•  Online and local co-op with 1-4 players

•  Coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2017"
