    Following their Direct that aired earlier this month, Nintendo is back to announce more games, and this time, it's solely about the indies. The Nindies Spring 2018 showcase will be airing today at 11 am CT/4 pm GMT, and will be showing off the indie titles that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch soon. Perhaps we'll see more about Stardew Valley's multiplayer, or a concrete release date for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. What are your expectations for this indie event? Be sure to stay tuned, as the event will be covered as it broadcasts.

    Nindies? Ningarbage more likely. Indies littered Steam, now it's time for consoles.

    I look to the indie scene for my retro fix on current consoles. Sometimes there are gems like Golf Story.

    True. But I forced to see tons of low-quality indie trash in the store, before find any decent game.

    The indie magnet of gaming systems. Nintendo needs to add a filter to hide indie titles. They have over filled the switch like E.T did to a land fill.

    I've got my fingers crossed that Hyper Light Drifter ends up in there somewhere.

    Also, thank you for the reminder.

    Watched the YouTube stream and I'm fairly certain about 80% of the chat failed to read the title...
    Calls of "SMASH", "MOTHER 3", etc.

    Games I am considering:)
    • Mark Of the Ninja Remastered
    • Fantasy Strike
    • Bomb Chicken
    • The Messenger (MORE NINJAS PLEASE)
    • Light Fall
    No mention of Toejam & Earl Back in the groove release date, No mention of Blade Strangers Either. No new Wayforward game yet or mention of Shantae half genie hero retail, no mention of Shakedown Hawaii. :(


    The heck you talking about!?

    So someone is actually forcing you to browse everything in the eshop? Yeah... Sucks to be you, but it's hardly the indie's fault. The rest of us either set up a filter on the price tag or do our research elsewhere

    Was hoping for something like Stardew Valley. Oh well, nothing interesting that I wanted.
