In this morning’s North American Nintendo Direct, Reggie Fils-Aime teased viewers with a sizzle reel featuring a bountiful amount of upcoming indie games due on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShop. Those who couldn’t watch the Nintendo Direct stream this morning can watch it now at their own leisure on Nintendo’s YouTube channel.

Nintendo 3DS games featured in the reel include Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, GrinsiaJett Rocket II: The Wrath of Takai (available now), Retro City Rampage, Putty SquadTreasurenauts, and Siesta Fiesta. For the Wii U, the reel included Q.U.B.E.

You can watch the reel below:

Each game is targeted for release either later this year or early next year.

Nintendo also announced a December software update featuring a Nintendo Network ID system that will unify eShop credit balances on the 3DS and Wii U systems. So if you’re browsing the eShop for indie games to add to your digital libraries for either system, you will be able to do so without the hassle of managing multiple accounts.
