Nintendo has announced their next Indie World Showcase set to feature 20 minutes of indie games coming to the Nintendo Switch. Here’s everything we know about it, including the date, time, and how to watch. 

Similar to a Nintendo Direct, the Indie World Showcase features a wide variety of games from independent developers that are set to arrive on the Nintendo Switch.

Just five months since the last showcase where Indie World revealed indie hits like OlliOlli World, Figment 2: Creed Valley, and Don’t Starve Together — the May 11, 2022 showcase will follow suit with roughly 20 minutes of information.

Here’s everything you need to know in order to experience the showcase live.

What to expect at the May Indie Game Showcase

Indie World does a fantastic job at preventing leaks leading up to the event, so we will have to wait until May 11 to see what indie games are coming to the Nintendo Switch.


However, basing it on the last few events and knowledge that it’s usually nonstop information, we can expect to see roughly 19 games announced in the 20-minute timeframe.

Rest assured, we will be sure to provide fans with updates on games announced as the Showcase happens live.
