Nintendo's latest Indie World Showcase has announced new ports and games for the system such as Among Us, Spelunky and Spelunky 2, Fisti-Fluffs, (which is first on the Nintendo Switch), and Very Very Valet, which is a timed exclusive to the Nintendo Switch. I'll be going through the games in the presentation rapid-fire, so check them out below.
Spelunky and Spelunky 2 almost need no introduction. Still, they are very popular and beloved platformers that have been on almost every game system at this point, and they are coming in Summer 2021 on the Switch.
Cyber-Shadow is a tough as nails 2D platformer featuring ninjas and a whole bunch of traps. The Nintendo Switch version has Amiibo support if you use the Shovel Knight Ammibos, so definitely check that out if you're interested. It's coming from Mechanical Hand Studios, and being published by Yacht Club Game (Shovel Knight) and it will be released on January 26, 2021.
Fisti-Fluffs is coming to first to the Nintendo Switch in early 2021. It's essentially a fighting game where up to four players (as cats) can beat the living snot out of each other while also grabbing things from the environment.
Very Very Valet is a party game where you drive around with up to four other players in a fun-looking party game. It's out in 2021 as a Nintendo Switch timed exclusive.
“We want Nintendo Switch owners to feel like they’re on a journey of discovery, with new indie gems to uncover around every corner,” said Steve Singer, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Publisher and Developer Relations. “Thanks to the dedicated ingenuity of independent developers around the world who have chosen Nintendo Switch as a home for their games, the system continues to host a flourishing collection of unforgettable indie experiences for players to enjoy.”
Tunche is a classic 2d beat-em up mixed with roguelike elements and witchcraft. It's out first on the Nintendo Switch in March 2021. It's also going to be available on Steam here.
Calico receives a surprise release later today, and is a day-in-the-life community sim where players can interact with all the animals found in the game. It also released on PC today.

Happy Game is an unnerving title where players will have to solve puzzles, endure unsettling songs, and survive suspicious and creepy happy faces. It will release in Spring 2021 on the Nintendo Switch.
Gnosia is a sci-fi adventure game where a spaceship is overtaken by aliens who can take the form of humans. Players will have to unravel their mysteries in this social-deduction title when the game launches on the Switch in early 2021.
Grindstone is a puzzle-battler with over 200 levels to go through. It is a timed console exclusive and will launch on the Nintendo Switch later today, after previously being on Apple Arcade.
Super Meat Boy Forever is the sequel to Super Meat Boy, and since Meat Boy and Bandage Girl's daughter has been kidnapped, players will have to go through another grinder of a game in order to get her back. The game launches on December 23rd as a console launch exclusive for the Nintendo Switch.
Last but not least, Among Us took the world by storm earlier this year, and now the survival social-deduction game is coming to the Nintendo Switch later today with cross-platform play.
