Nintendo Indie World Showcase bringing 20 minutes of fun tomorrow

Short indie-focused Nintendo showcase to give the lowdown on upcoming games on August 18.

It's time for another Nintendo Indie World Showcase tomorrow, as we're treated to another 20 minutes of upcoming Switch games.

The Nintendo Indie World Showcase begins on August 18 at 9am PT/12pm ET, and you can watch it on YouTube, Nintendo's minisite, or even just the embedded stream below. 

As it's an indie showcase, don't expect news of Nintendo's first-party plans for the rest of the year. We know you're all eager to learn more about Breath of the Wild 2, or Metroid, but please don't get your hopes up. Please. It's indie games, it says so right there. Indie.

That said, there are plenty of upcoming indies that are touted for the Switch we'd love to hear more about, including the Hollow Knight follow-on Silksong, which was announced in February last year with Switch as the only listed console release.

With only 20 minutes of news, don't expect there to be any thorough deep-dives, such as the recent Smash Directs, but keep your fingers crossed for a handful of surprises, eh?

The Nintendo Indie World Showcase will air at 9am PT/12pm ET tomorrow, August 18, on YouTube and Nintendo's website. Which indie games are you hoping to see?


Chris is the captain of the good ship AllGamers, which would explain everything you're seeing here. Get in touch to talk about work or the $6 million Echo Slam by emailing or finding him on Twitter.
