    Following the Nintendo Direct last week, Nintendo have announced a Nindies showcase for the 20th of March. Highlighting indie titles headed for the Nintendo Switch, it'll be live from 9am PT (12pm ET) at live.nintendo.com, or at the YouTube link below. What titles are you hoping to hear about? Could we finally have a release date for the much anticipated Wargroove? Let us know your thoughts below.

    Probably a bunch of Game Maker games since they announced they supported Switch export. Hotline Miami, Nuclear Throne...

    Xbox announced a boatload of indies prior to GDC. I wonder if we'll see some overlap with Nintendo for some of those. I can't really think of an indie game in sore need of a Switch port, but hopefully there's at least one pleasant surprise during the showcase.

    I'm actually pretty excited for this. The last nindies showcase showed quite a few neat little games. Here's to hoping that hollow knight finally gets a release date!

    I'm with @rileysrjay
    Loved the last showcase, got to play and meet with the devs of many of those games at PAX West following the Nindies reel, and I ended up buying many of 'em, too! Hope this one's packed with as much goodies as the last. There's still some Nindies from the last showcase that haven't launched yet, like No More Heroes and Kentucky Route Zero, so maybe we'll see new trailers for those, too.

    Rainway is made by an independent studio, right? :tpi:

    Makes sense. Nintendo has no plans for a hardware revision, so why not let independent studios fiddle with it? :creep:

    I’m also looking forward to Terraria as I’ve been following the console updates for this one closely. I hope we get a definitive release date.

    I bet 90% of those are not exclusive.

    Devolver retweeted the news so I'm betting on Hotline Miami.

    Today is a great day to be a developer!
    and now my dream to make a Nintendo exclusive game has been re-ingnited.

    better find a job where I can do that though...if ONLY there is a way without sacrificing my health or mortagging the house...

    No more people confusing Steam games with mobile ports!

    I swear to god people think that only Nintendo has indies on its consoles or something. Definitely don't hear the same bitching when another 16-bit game shows up on PS4.
