Today’s Nindies Nintendo Direct brought with it plenty of big announcements for fans of the indie scene, but it turns out that the showcase wasn’t even the end of today’s announcement plans. Not only was Hyper Light Drifter announced hours after the presentation, but it turns out that Nidhogg 2 will also be landing on the eShop sometime this year.

For those of you out of the loop, Nidhogg 2 is a sort of reverse tug-of-war game, in which each player’s goal is to use swords, knives, bows, and many more weapons to prevent the other player from running to the edge of the stage and getting eaten by the Nidhogg. It’s crazy good local multiplayer fun, and will be a perfect fit for the Switch when it launches sometime later this year. Here's the trailer from the Steam release:
