Join gaming leaders, alongside GamesBeat and Facebook Gaming, for their 2nd Annual GamesBeat & Facebook Gaming Summit | GamesBeat: Into the Metaverse 2 this upcoming January 25-27, 2022. Learn more about the event. 

Nintendo announced today that it will host another Indie World showcase at 9 a.m. Pacific tomorrow, August 11.

The 20-minute show will give Nintendo a chance to highlight some of the biggest indie games coming to the Switch for the rest of this year and beyond. The console has some major first-party releases on the way, including Metroid: Dread, but indies have found a lot of success on the machine. They can help fill out Switch’s holiday lineup.

Hopefully, this show will include a look at Hollow Knight: Silksong. It’s been a long time since we’ve heard about the anticipated sequel to the beloved Metroidvania.
