Nintendo To Host Nindies Showcase March 20

Nintendo Switch indie games are about to get some love

Nintendo brings its next Direct to fans next week, but this time the Nindies will get the spotlight as Switch owners get a look at upcoming independent titles.

Since the Switch's launch previous year, Nintendo has cemented the home console-portable hybrid system's position as a key player in the indie video game space. Today Nintendo announced the Nindies Showcase for Spring 2018, a Direct-like event just for Nindies.

You can bookmark this page and come back to it to see what the Nindies Showcase has to offer, or head to the official Nintendo live video site to watch it there as well as YouTube.

Adult Swim Festival Featuring Run The Jewels Set for October
The network previously held the Adult Swim on the Green tour and a heavy metal concert series called Thrashtacular . Going off the teaser video alone, we expect Rick and Morty to have a huge presence at Adult Swim Festival as well.

The former is important, because Nintendo is running another "Nindies Showcase" soon on March 20, at 9AM PT to highlight some more indie releases coming to the Nintendo Switch (the Switch was specifically mentioned, not 3DS).

Earlier this month, Nintendo premiered a new Direct that focuses on some of the triple-A titles launching for the platform over the course of 2018.

If you do not remember, it is a transmission where Nintendo shows part of the alignment of independent titles that will reach their systems.
