Nintendo kicked off this Gamescom week with a new Nindies Highlights video, announcing several new titles for the Switch and giving us release dates for titles we already knew would be available. All of the games featured in this presentation are playable at Gamescom this week, so if you happen to be in Cologne get ready to have some fun.
