Watch Nintendo’s new Indie World showcase here

Nintendo will broadcast a new Indie World presentation on Wednesday, April 17, a showcase that promises “roughly 20 minutes of announcements and updates on indie games headed to Nintendo Switch in 2024,” the company said in an announcement Tuesday.

The new Indie World showcase will stream live at 10 a.m. EDT/7 a.m. PDT on Nintendo’s YouTube and Twitch channels. You can watch April’s Indie World in the embedded video above.

Indie World showcases typically come with new game announcements, demo releases, and surprise drops. You’ll definitely want to check out the Nintendo Switch eShop later today.

Nintendo’s most recent Indie World showcase aired in November 2023, and featured Switch games Outer Wilds: Archaeologist Edition, Shantae Advance: Risky Revolution, Backpack Hero, Blade Chimera, Core Keeper, and others. Nintendo hasn’t said which indie games are expected to appear during Wednesday’s showcase, but expectations that the long-awaited Hollow Knight: Silksong could appear are higher than ever. Team Cherry’s follow-up to Hollow Knight was recently rated by Australia’s ratings board, typically an indicator that a game’s release is imminent.

Unlikely to appear during April’s Indie World is the company’s next console. “Switch 2” is reportedly coming sometime in early 2025, and we may not hear official details on that next-gen console until summer or fall.
