We were just treated to a Nintendo Direct last week, and Nintendo is already gearing up for another video presentation. The Big N announced today that they’ll be holding a special Nindies Showcase in just a few days. If you haven’t seen a Nindies event before, they’re special presentations where Nintendo highlights some of the top upcoming games from independent developers.
The next Nindies Showcase will be held on Tuesday, March 20th. The show kicks off at 9:00 AM Pacific Time / Noon Eastern. That’s 4:00 PM for our friends in the UK and 5:00 PM in Europe. During the Showcase, Nintendo will focus on indie games slated to launch on Nintendo Switch this Spring. As usual, we’ll be livestreaming the whole show here at Gamnesia and keeping you up to date with the news as it breaks.
It’s always great to see Nintendo giving the spotlight to smaller developers, and events like these are a great way to learn about gems you might have otherwise missed. January’s Nintendo Direct tipped me off to Celeste, which is one of the best platformers I’ve played in years.
