Nintendo has made an unexpected announcement today for a new Showcase video presentation. That’s the company’s preferred format for sharing information about titles. The company has sent out a tweet confirming that it will hold a Nindies Showcase on March 20.
Indie games will be front and center in this Showcase. The company says that this new Nindies Showcase video presentation will feature “about 30 minutes of information” about the new indie games that are coming to the Nintendo Switch.
No further information has obviously been revealed at this point in time as Nintendo obviously wants fans to tune into the video presentation. It has been scheduled for 9 am PT on Wednesday, March 20th. The video presentation will be accessible at live.nintendo.com.
This announcement today was certainly unexpected but Nintendo Switch owners will be definitely interested in hearing more about these indie titles. It’s sort of a routine matter for the company as it often drops dates for Nintendo Direct streams at short notice as well.
If one can draw comparisons with earlier Showcases, perhaps we might get to see a mix of exclusive titles getting their big break on the Switch in addition to older indie games that are finally being ported over to Nintendo’s current-gen console.
