The Nintendo Switch is a promising new platform with not a whole lot of games right now. Thankfully the Nintendo Download is coming to the rescue with a host of new indie titles, which Nintendo still affectionately refers to as "Nindies."
Switch is getting The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, Human Resource Machine, Little Inferno and World of Goo. Meanwhile, the poor neglected Wii U Virtual Console is getting Picross 3D, while the stalwart 3DS is still chugging along with Double Breakout and Sudoku Party.
A good lineup to be sure, but hopefully soon the Switch will play host to some indies that people haven't already been playing on Steam or Wii U for years now. You can see the full details after the break.

Nintendo eShop sales:
Also new this week:
In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch console, the Wii U console, and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch, Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in any Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Network account.
The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points™, which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi™ Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points™. Click here for details about the recent Nintendo DSi Shop service change.
Remember that Nintendo Switch, Wii U, Wii, New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access. Nintendo 3DS players who register a Nintendo Network ID gain access to free-to-start games and free game demos from Nintendo eShop, and also get the latest news and information direct from Nintendo.
