Nintendo revealed that the indie Metroidvania Hollow Knight is coming to Switch today during its Electronic Entertainment Expo event today in Los Angeles.

Hollow Knight came out for PC last year. This is the indie game’s console debut. It’s a Metroidvania, a kind of 2D platformer that focuses on nonlinear levels and exploration. Hollow Knight also has beautiful, hand-drawn art.
