Nintendo Direct Indie Livestream For March 2020: Start Times And Watch It Here

Nintendo's latest Indie World Showcase video presentation will contain 20 minutes of information on new Switch games.


If you're stuck at home and are running out of games to play already, Nintendo has you covered. The latest Nintendo Indie World Showcase stream is coming today, and it's bringing plenty of information on upcoming Switch games.

Steaming on March 17 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET--it's getting underway right now--the Indie World Showcase will last approximately 20 minutes. Nintendo isn't detailing exactly what to expect during the video, but these events tend to feature rapid-fire announcements from acclaimed indie developers. We're likely to hear about ports of existing indie games from other systems as well as all-new Switch exclusives.

Watch It Here

During the Indie World Showcase back in December, Nintendo revealed Sports Story, which is a sequel to the acclaimed RPG Golf Story. We also got our first look at Axiom Verge 2, in development by original creator Tom Happ for a Fall 2020 release.

Nintendo could be hoping its presentation satiates fans until Animal Crossing: New Horizons launches March 20. Because the coronavirus has kept many people at home over the last few days and it shows no signs of slowing down, players are calling on Nintendo to release the game early, and a petition is up to more than 14,000 signatures already.

We don't expect Nintendo to launch the game early, but there is a chance at least a few of the games announced during the Indie World Showcase will be released right after it ends. This sort of surprise is a staple of Nintendo presentations and it would help to make the wait a little easier.
