It's time for the indies to get another spotlight from Nintendo. Tomorrow morning, Nintendo will be hosting a new Indie World Showcase, spotlighting games coming to the Switch from indie developers.
It's important to note that this is not a Nintendo Direct, so you should probably meter expectations accordingly. If you're going into this with hopes of news about, let's say, Metroid Prime 4 or the rumored Mario Switch remasters, you're just setting yourself up for disappointment.
That doesn't mean there won't be news, however. Looking back on what Nintendo has historically shown at these events, it tends to be a mix of beloved indie gems and quiet, surprise hits.
Last year's August Indie World Showcase, which happened so close to the same time that I did a double-take, had some fairly exciting news. The Ori and the Blind Forest Switch port was confirmed, the Hotline Miami Collection was an "out now" surprise, and other games like Eastward and Risk of Rain 2—which hit 1.0 and added a final boss recently—were shown off.
Hopefully, tomorrow will be similarly filled with tons of fun new indie games to look forward to playing. With the number of delays that have happened for this fall's major games, from Halo Infinite to Bloodlines 2, I'm happy to let some rad new indies fill the gap they left.
