Nintendo has announced a new Indie World presentation, marking what may be the last Nintendo Direct stream of 2020. Nintendo promises it will include roughly 15 minutes of updates and announcements about indie games. The brief preview of indies to come will begin at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET on Tuesday, December 15.
Given the timing, we can probably expect most of the announcements to be for upcoming 2021 games. But Nintendo usually ties a few surprise-releases of games, demos, or DLC to its showcases, giving them the spotlight just as they release, so we may also see something new to play alongside the presentation.
Nintendo similarly capped off the year with an Indie World presentation in December 2019, where it showcased Axiom Verge 2, Sports Story, Streets of Rage 4, and one of our favorite Switch games of 2020, Murder by Numbers.
Ring in the holidays with a new #IndieWorld Showcase on Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 9 a.m. PT!
Tune in for roughly 15 minutes of updates and new announcements on indie games coming to #NintendoSwitch from our global partners.
