It’s an indie overload.
The Nindies Showcase Spring 2018 is a mini direct for Nintendo indie games.
Japanese video game company Nintendo revealed the upcoming Nindies for the Nintendo Switch. “Nindies” is the term used for the indie game titles on the Nintendo Switch. About a percentage of Nindies are available for purchase on the Switch’s eShop.
This number will eventually grow as more indie game developers plan to launch their games on the Nintendo Switch.
The Nindies Showcase Spring 2018 rolled out on the 20th of March, 2018 through a live that started 9:00AM P.T.
Here are the games that we will be seeing first on the Nintendo Switch.
From 14 different indie games, seven titles are launching for the first time on the Switch.
