Nintendo has announced that another Indie World showcase is airing tomorrow. As usual, the presentation will feature information on upcoming indies for Switch, and it'll air at 9am Pacific (that's 12pm Eastern), so make sure you set your calendar and alarm accordingly.

On Twitter, Nintendo promises "roughly 20 minutes of reveals, announcements, and updates" on indie titles coming to Switch in the near future. Of course, we don't know exactly what will be featured in the showcase just yet, but if you're looking for more reasons to fire up your Switch, this presentation should give you some. As ever, you'll be able to watch it on Nintendo's official YouTube channel.

Since this is an indie showcase, don't expect to hear from major Nintendo franchises, no matter what the event's live chat may speculate. Games like Metroid Prime 4 will, of course, be entirely absent from the stream, as will titles from major publishers like Square Enix or Capcom. This is all about the little guys.

Previous Indie World focal points include monochrome adventure Blanc, as well as OobletsCult of the Lamb, and more.

In the past, Nintendo Indie World showcase reveals have included sports RPG Sports Story, crabby Soulslike adventure Another Crab's Treasure, and a Switch port for social deduction phenomenon Among Us. That's the kind of level we'll likely be operating on for tomorrow's presentation as well.

Of course, there's one major indie game that always comes up whenever an Indie World showcase (or, indeed, any indie-oriented presentation) is announced, and that's Hollow Knight: Silksong. Will we finally get some more info about when we can expect this hotly-anticipated platformer? Honestly, I think it's pretty unlikely, but a man can dream, no?

The Nintendo Indie World April 2023 showcase airs tomorrow at 9am Pacific (12pm Eastern and 5pm BST). Make sure to head over to Nintendo's official YouTube channel if you want to watch the whole thing.
