Nintendo states that the showcase will be around 20 minutes long, and will feature information on upcoming indie titles set to release on the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch features a wide variety of amazing indie games, so anything featured by Nintendo itself is sure to go over well with fans. Many are hoping to see news on the upcoming sequel to Hollow Knight, known as Hollow Knight: Silksong, which was unfortunately absent from the previous Indie World Showcase. Others will be on the lookout for any news on Oxenfree II: Lost Signals, the sequel to Oxenfree, set to take place five years after the original game.
