    Did they drop the Nindies moniker? I kinda liked it.

    Neat. I feel like a lot of people pass on games just because of the label "indie", whereas there are some amazing games under this label (undertale for example).

    Very remarkable titles flourish from indie developers, and yes, there's a lot of forgettable garbage, but that's no reason for generalize everyone in the same sack.

    Among those we have:

    Celeste
    Cup Head
    Hollow Knight (This is a remarkable gem)
    Cadence of Hyrule
    Terraria
    Stardew Valley
    Undertale
    Enter the Gungeon
    Cave Story
    And so on...

    Heck, the best example is that Minecraft started as an indie game , so I don't see why some people bashes indie games before even trying them.

    I personally am waiting for more info about Silksong (Hollow Knight Sequel), is a game I'm waiting since I finished the first one.

    These are good games, of course, but most of the nindies titles is just stuff no one cares about

    The best would be to have low expectations on this "Indie World" showcase, so if somthing interesting gets announced, we can see it with good eyes, remember that the past presentation of this sort revealed Cuphead for the switch and no one saw that coming :P

    All I want is a release date for the english version of La-Mulana 2. It's out on Switch in Japan and they already have a localized version on PC, so surely it shouldn't take THAT much longer. Oh, and Rabi-Ribi too (though I think that one still isn't released in any regions, the developer tweeted that he had finished the port back in March...).

    I'll just wait for a Nindie humble bundle since I own most ported indie games on pc already and they cost more on switch. It was nice when they had a couple for the Wii U amd 3DS.
    Anyday now.........

    I do hope to see some exclusive games that take adgantage of the unique hardware as I am a little tired of just seeing ports.

    Never could get excited for these. Not saying indies are bad per se, but a lot of the stuff they show on these feels like shovelware...

    There's only so much good AAA games available without all the microtransaction bullshit or being the walking simulator fetch quests. Once in a while a good indie is pretty much vital to balance that off.

    Here's hoping for a Silksong 2019 release date!

    Or (I can dream), they'll come out with a trailer, and then say it's available... NOW!

    Maybe we'll get a date for Shovel Knight: King of Cards at long last.
