Pocket Rumble is a streamlined, beginner-friendly 2D fighting game inspired by SNK's classic fighters for the Neo Geo Pocket Color. It retains all the gameplay elements that make traditional Street Fighter-style fighters great, but reduces the level of execution and memorization necessary to the bare minimum. That way experienced players can learn the game fast and be able to focus on deeper elements of strategy and mindgames, new players can learn the ins and outs of fighting games without being overwhelmed, and everyone can get their skills to a competitive level without too much grinding alone in training mode.
As we wrote in our recent interview with a couple of indie developers working on getting their games ready for the Nintendo Switch, the Switch itself is fast becoming a fantastic platform for fans of indie games. Not only has Nintendo made the Switch easier and more accessible for indie developers, but the Switch audience appears to be even more open to buying indie games on the Switch - making the platform incredibly lucrative, rather than a gamble.
In addition to talking to Switch developers, we wanted to highlight some of the most exciting indie games that will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch in the coming months. Check them out below, and think about which one you'll be buying next for your own Switch!
