Everything announced in Nintendo's new Switch indie showcase

16 games, including Mark of the Ninja Remastered.

Nintendo has just wrapped up its Nindies Showcase Spring 2018 broadcast, which was headlined by the the reveal of Mark of the Ninja Remastered.

Originally launched in 2012 for Xbox 360, the side-scrolling stealth game became a cult classic. Its Switch re-release is slated for the autumn.

Other noteworthy announcements include Lumines Remastered and West of Loathing - both due this spring - plus The Banner Saga 3, headed to Switch this summer before imminent releases of both Banner Saga 1 and 2.

Mobile game Reigns - a medieval kingdom strategy with the gameplay of Tinder - is also headed Switch-wards in a double pack with its sequel, Reigns: Her Majesty. The full release is named Reigns: Kings and Queens and is due this spring.

Personally, I liked the look of Viking-themed rogue-lite Bad North:
