It's a little more than four years into the Switch’s lifespan and its sales are still going strong, with retailers, particularly in large cities, reporting difficulty keeping stock for more than a few days. With the Switch’s popularity, it’s easy to forget the system isn’t just the hot holiday toy for several years running, it’s also the must-have machine for anyone who prefers indy gaming over AAA fare.

Nintendo recently reminded us of this with a Nintendo Treehouse that emphasized the new indie games coming to the Nintendo Switch. While a number of them look promising, it still remains to be seen if they can find a foothold among the group of Indies the Switch already offers.
