Nintendo recently announced that they would be holding an Indie World presentation on August 19th, and that during its 20 minute-runtime, they’d be sharing details on indie games coming to the Nintendo Switch. Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad on Twitter has dropped some info on the sort of announcements we can expect, and if these are true, then they’re going to be big ones.

The first bit of info Ahmad has dropped is the Nintendo will be announcing the Switch release of another “Microsoft / Xbox-first game”, to follow in the footsteps of Minecraft, Cuphead, and Super Lucky’s Tale. Earlier this year, there were various reports that the indie team Moon Studio-developed Ori and the Blind Forest was going to launch on the Switch soon, and one of those reports even correctly leaked Cuphear’s Switch launch, so that remains a possibility.

In a separate tweet, Ahmad then went on to mention that two games will be shadow dropped during the presentation, which means a “this game is available right now” reveal, and both these games are supposedly “hot.” It’s anyone’s best guess what these could be, but 2018’s beloved PC RPG CrossCode was confirmed for a 2019 Switch launch earlier in the year- perhaps that’s ready for release?

Finally, Ahmad also mentioned that we’d be getting “solid 2019 release dates” for Creature in the Well, Blasphemous, Northgard, Trine 4, One Finger Death Punch 2, Skellboy (note: Trine 4’s release date has already been confirmed as October 8). 2019 or 2020 release windows will also be confirmed for “other games.” Here’s hoping Hollow Knight: Silksong is one of them.

That said, there’s no telling right now how accurate this will end up being, so don’t take this as official confirmation of any sort. Either way, we’ll keep you updated, so stay tuned.
