Nintendo is preparing for an Indie Direct.
Let’s show some Nindie love!
The Twitter account of Nintendo (@NintendoAmerica) announced today that there will be a showcase of games happening three days from now. The Nindies Showcase Spring 2018 will highlight upcoming indie game releases for the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo will go live on March 20 at 9AM PT for the Nindies Showcase Spring 2018. Fans can watch the whole showcase on Nintendo’s website.
Our predictions for the Nindies Showcase Spring 2018
We are expecting to see a Hollow Knight release date announcement for this Nindies showcase. The announcement for the port came in late last year, and since then fans have all been waiting to see the beloved indie title on the Switch.
Pocket Rumble already had a Nintendo Switch trailer last year, however no news about the game has been released recently. We’re including Pocket Rumble in our prediction!
The 2D side scroller game by INTI CREATES CO., LTD, Dragon Marked for Death, is also expected to appear in the indie game showcase.
What the fans are saying…
Some are glad, others are just plain mad at Nintendo for this Nindies Showcase Spring 2018. Here are the fans’s sentiments.
The Viking Chef (@avikingchef) is wondering why the announcement for the direct is so so early in contrast with a Nintendo Direct.
Now why the heck do we get 4 days notice for nindies, but 1 day notice for a direct?
TheMarioManiac (@MarioManiacYT) is hoping for some Terraria news on the Nindies Spring Showcase 2018.
Hoping for Terraria to be shown off!
Having two directs in one month is too much for Rikukey2 (@KevinBShell1) but hey, who DOESN’T want a direct?
WUT TWO DIRECTS IN ONE MONTH?! WHAT SORTA WITCHCRAFT IS THIS!
lol (Dragons marjed for death release date please)
Don’t forget to tune in on March 20, 9AM PT on live.nintendo.com.
