Nintendo presents Nindies 2! Now with more games absolutely NO ONE cares about!!!

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

Last year we got the nes announcement a few days after the indie showcase. So here’s to hoping they announce an online expansion next week

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.

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen.
