In 2017, it was Nintendo's Year for me personally.
The Nintendo Switch, which was released in March, fascinated me for months, and full-fledged Nintendo content that can be played on a Mobile Phone also appeared, which was not bad to me.
As a bonus, they finally released Star Fox 2. This is one of the things I found most unexpected this year.
Not only that, a lot of Japanese games were released. It was a very good year for the Japanese game industry.
Also, unfortunately there were too many games released on Steam, and I could not keep track of them all.
There are lots of wonderful indie games on Steam. But how do we find out about them?Especially in Japan, I feel that it is very difficult for me to keep up with it.
Here are the 10 games I chose.
I am very much looking forward to updating this list every year.
I thank Alex and Giant Bomb for always giving me this opportunity.
