Nintendo has recently announced the date of their upcoming Indie World Showcase, which is considerably sooner than many fans had anticipated. The next Indie World Showcase will go online tomorrow (August 11th) at 12 p.m. Eastern Time.
Fans on Twitter have had various reactions to the announcement, but it appears that there is a general sense of enthusiasm about it. Previous Indie World Showcases have been successful, but fans need to have realistic expectations. Many fans are expecting news regarding Breath of the Wild 2 or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which is understandable, but this is unlikely to happen tomorrow.
This will be all about Indie games, and they all fall under the category of triple ‘A’ games, so don’t expect to see any of them. Instead, gamers should express their support for this exhibition, which will assist in spotlighting the hard work of independent video game producers. It’s fantastic to see a platform as large as Nintendo highlighting these little initiatives.
As shown in the tweet below, the presentation will last around 20 minutes and will feature several future Indie games coming to the Nintendo Switch platform. There’s no way of knowing which games will be aired here, but fans appear to have great expectations.
One of the most popular requests in the replies to the tweet below is for a new trailer for Hollow Knight: Silksong, while many others want to know what’s next for Cuphead. These Indie games might show up at the showcase, but there’s no certainty.
Even though the program doesn’t start until tomorrow, the link to watch the broadcast is already active. Unfortunately, it looks that a sizable section of the fans is anticipating triple-A performances, which will not occur.

To minimize disappointment, it’s essential to know what the event is for ahead of time. On the plus side, for fans who are more interested in triple-A titles, these Indie World Showcases are usually followed by a full-fledged Nintendo Direct within a month or two.
Tune in on August 11th at 12 p.m. ET for the most up-to-date information about Indie titles coming to the Nintendo Switch. These games include unique and inventive worlds created by brilliant indie developers, and they deserve all of the attention they can receive.
Furthermore, Indie games are typically less expensive than the $60 price tag that most gamers are accustomed to, making them an excellent option to have some fun on the cheap.
