First off we’ve got the big news. Supergiant’s Hades, that silly Epic Game Store exclusive, is coming to the Nintendo Switch this fall. You can read more about that here. Another big deal is a free multiplayer update coming to Untitled Goose Game on September 23. Mind you that’s across all versions of the game, including Steam, which launches that very day.

Rather than go through the game announcements as they appeared in the presentation, let’s start with the games coming out today.
