Nintendo Hosting Indie World Showcase Stream This Week

Nintendo has announced a new Indie World Showcase, taking place this week on August 18 at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET. The stream will last around 20 minutes.

The Indie World showcases have previously revealed release dates for big independent game coming to Nintendo Switch, which is likely to be the case this week too. While Nintendo hasn’t teased what might be shown, games like Disco Elysium and Hollow Knight Silksong, which have both been confirmed for Switch in the past, would be welcome appearances.

Nintendo’s first-party output has also been slow in the second half of this year, with sparse announcements for games coming between now and the end of 2020. Recently, Nintendo revealed Pikmin 3 Deluxe for Switch–a port of another Wii U classic with all its content and additional features. That’s set to launch in October.

The latest first-party release on the Nintendo Switch was Paper Mario: The Origami King, which release just a handful of months after being announced. In our Paper Mario: The Origami King review, critic Suriel Vazquez praised the game’s writing and charm, saying, “The Paper Mario series has recently shown that being clever and being smart are two different things, but thankfully, it’s once again managed to be both.”
