After Cuphead, y'know what would be good? EVERYTHING.

The March 2019 Nindies Showcase was pretty darn awesome, and one of the reasons it achieved such awesomeness was the big reveal that Cuphead would be coming to the Switch.

This is important, because it's the first sign of what's to come from the new team-up between Nintendo and Microsoft. Tongues have been set to wag, and all the online speculation has gone into overdrive. Obviously time will tell what the two gaming giants come up with, but for most people, the primary area of focus is the games.

Cuphead is definitely a great start. It's a mechanically tight and imaginative game, with plenty of challenge and has plenty of acclaim. It also makes perfect sense because its aesthetic design and focus on finely tuned gameplay suits Nintendo's mantra down to the core.

However, gamers are greedy for all things on Switch, and now all I can think about is what we're getting next from such an extensive library of Xbox exclusives.

Obviously, there are loads out there, dating all the way back to 2001, so it's simply a case of sifting through and deciding which are the best, alongside which are best suited for Nintendo's hybrid system. Easy stuff.

10. Rare Replay

What better way to kick things off than with a game that's actually 30 games, some of which made their debuts back on Nintendo consoles?

With the earliest entries going all the way back to 1983, it's inevitable that some will have dated better than others, but it's thirty games!

Combined, Rare Replay is able to cater to fans of many genres at once, from platforming, fighting, shooting, racing and Blast Corps' unique hold on the arcade, puzzle, vehicular destruction, disaster aversion, simulation market. Anyway, there's enough here for anyone to get their money's worth.

Also it's high time Rare and Nintendo patched things up and what better way than with this hefty peace offering.
