CHRISTMAS is only two weeks away, and Nintendo has announced a raft of new games ahead of the holiday season.
The Japanese gaming giant held a showcase event focused entirely on the Switch's upcoming indie games – those made by small development teams on a shoestring budget.
Don't let their small scale put you off though: Some of the Switch's best games have been Indie titles, such as bonkers footy simulator Rocket League and slow-mo shooter Superhot.
Here's what Nintendo has to offer over the next few months.
Dauntless available on Switch
Nintendo launched free-to-play game Dauntless on Switch on December 10.
The RPG sees you battle ferocious Behemoths and craft powerful weapons and armour.
Developed by Phoenix Lab, you can join forces with up to three other players.
The co-op game is already available on the PC, Xbox One, and PS4, with an estimated 15 million players.
The Talos Principle available on Switch
The Talos Principle is a first-person puzzle adventure game and it's out on Switch now.
It features physics-based, slow-paced challenges in a similar vein to Sci-Fi puzzle title Portal.
The game proved a hit when it was released in 2014 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Axiom Verge sequel on the way
Smash hit adventure game Axiom Verge turned heads when it hit shelves in 2015.
It's getting a sequel, Axiom Verge 2, which is coming to the Switch next year.
We don't know many details yet but it's certainly one to look forward to.
