The Next Nintendo Indie World Showcase Is Set For Tomorrow


With huge winter game releases behind us and huge summer announcements right around the corner, the games industry is set for a relatively quiet month or two. Luckily, Nintendo plans to briefly step in to fill that void. Today, it announced the next Indie World Showcase, a live stream event focused on the latest indie titles to come to the Switch, for tomorrow, April 17. The showcase will air at 7 AM PT/10 AM ET and last for around 20 minutes.

It’s in the name so it might be obvious to some, but don’t expect any first-party games or hardware announcements out of this event. An Indie World Showcase is also not the same thing as a Nintendo Partner Showcase, which is just a show about third party games. This can include indie titles (the last one had a trailer for Another Crab’s Treasure, for example) but also includes larger developers, like Sega or Atlus.

If that’s confusing, you can get a sense of the games that have been showcased in this type of presentation in the past by visiting the official Indie World site. Fans will most likely be clamoring for a trailer or release date for Hollow Knight: Silksong, the sequel to the 2017 bug-themed Metroidvania. But while it’s (hopefully) right around the corner, there’s no specific reason to believe it will appear at this event other than the fact that it’s an indie game coming to the Switch.

We won’t know until the Indie World Showcase properly airs tomorrow. When it does, you can watch it right here.
