Comments

Nintendo has premiered its December 2020 Indie World stream, providing us with what's likely our last Nintendo Direct-style event of the year. As promised, it ran about 15 minutes and delivered news on a variety of Nintendo Switch games from various indie developers. While the focus was on games coming in 2021, there are a few that are releasing today on the eShop.

Here's a look at the biggest announcements from the event. You can also rewatch the stream below.

Among Us

One of 2020's biggest games has been Among Us, a game that originally released two years ago. Nevertheless, its social deception nature and online multiplayer support has made it a smash hit during quarantine, and now you'll be able to play Among Us on Nintendo Switch--it releases today.
