Nintendo Hosts Video Presentation Next Week On Upcoming Switch Indies

With the Switch launch just right around the corner, Nintendo announced it will hold a special video presentation on upcoming Switch indie games next week.

The presentation begins on February 28 (Tuesday) at 9:00 am PT. All that Nintendo included in its message was, "Discover great indie games coming to Nintendo Switch." See the full tweet below. 

With people pining for more Switch games and wondering what Nintendo's plans are for indies, this should clear up some confusion just in time for its March 3 launch.

 

Our Take
Indie support is important for a console, and Nintendo has received plenty of feedback that it needs more games and variety to attract consumers. Here's hoping this is a step in the right direction and Nintendo locked down some intriguing indie games for its system, as people will be looking for things to play, especially in the first few months when not many games are available. Getting its message out right before launch is also smart. I'm eager to see what Nintendo will show off.
