The number of Nintendo Switch titles continues to grow and Nintendo will spotlight the many independent games coming to the hybrid console in a brand new Nintendo Direct.

The Nindies Showcase Summer 2017 Nintendo Direct will highlight multiple indie games coming to the Switch , along with possible new information and release dates. There may even be a surprise announcement or two; Nintendo fans know anything is possible with these Directs.

Nintendo hasn’t released specifics about what will actually be shown during the Nindies Direct but it has been teasing some of the titles coming to the Switch since E3 back in June. This showcase will give more information on games expected to release during the holiday season.

Here are some of the independent games expected to be featured in the Nindies Nintendo Direct:

Steamworld Dig 2

Monster Boy

Yoku’s Island Express

Away: Journey to the Unexpected

Nine Parchments

And many more.

Nintendo released a preview of all the Nindie titles coming to the Switch between September and early 2018 on the official Twitter account. You can check it out below.

If you want to get a glimpse at these independent titles, you’ll want to check out the Nindies Showcase Summer 2017 Direct on Aug. 30, starting at 1 p.m. EDT. There are a few ways to watch the Nintendo Direct on your computer or phone. You can visit the official Nintendo Direct website, here. Viewers can also check the Nintendo Direct on Nintendo’s YouTube or Twitch page. You can watch both below.


While the Nintendo Switch library has been quite impressive, the bulk of the titles (so far) have been independent games. As publishers and studios get more acclimated to the Switch, we can expect more titles will release, especially independent games.
